Privacy Policy

Cambridge Brain Sciences Inc. (“CBS”) may collect personal information in the course of providing you with our services. This Privacy Policy explains how CBS and its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, “CBS,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) handles your personal information when you visit or use our websites located at home.cambridgebrainsciences.com, www.cambridgebrainsciences.com, new.cambridgebrainsciences.com or home.cbstrials.com (the “CBS Websites”), any CBS mobile applications (the “CBS Mobile Applications”), and any other website or mobile application that links to this Privacy Statement (collectively, the “CBS Services”).

Our public platforms, home.cambridgebrainsciences.com, new.cambridgebrainsciences.com and www.cambridgebrainsciences.com, allow users to test their cognition and track it over time, as well as comparing their results to others. We also maintain home.CBSTrials.com, a research and commercial-focused site for the controlled assessment and analysis of cognitive function in targeted groups. Researchers who would like to use our tests for controlled research projects or commercial purposes should contact Cambridge Brain Sciences at info@cambridgebrainsciences.com.

  1. Collection of Information

CBS offers web-based platforms and mobile applications for measuring and tracking cognition. Our scientifically valid tests (the “Test” or “Tests”), which are based on over two decades of pioneering research by leading neuroscientist Dr. Adrian Owen and are backed by hundreds of peer reviewed articles in scientific journals, evaluate such cognitive elements as memory, reasoning, concentration, planning and intelligence.

The CBS Services are enabled by the CBS Websites and the CBS Mobile Applications. By using the CBS Services, CBS may collect the following types of information:

(a) Account Information:

To access and use certain features of the CBS Services, you may need to register for a CBS Account (the “Account”) through the available CBS interfaces, namely, the CBS Websites or the CBS Mobile Applications. During the registration process, you may be asked to provide us with information such as your full name, email address, gender, city or town, education level, occupation, and picture. You may also be asked to choose a username, password and security questions.

In registering for an Account (or after registration), you may be able to provide your social media login information and password through platforms such as Facebook. If you do so, you authorize us to access certain social media account information (consistent with your social media privacy settings), including but not limited to your profile information, full name, username, email address and full physical address. All such information is provided directly by the social media platform, whose use of your personal information will be subject to its own privacy policy and terms of use.

(b) Information Related to the Tests

To use the CBS Services, you will need to complete Tests related to cognitive elements, such as, memory, reasoning, concentration, planning and intelligence. Your responses to each Test will be collected and tracked over time.

Further, we may collect your responses to questions related to such lifestyle and other factors as your stress level, sleep amount and physical activity as these factors may have an impact on your Test results.

When completing a Test, if you do not wish to make optional personal information available, you do not have to complete those sections. If you supply personal information and later wish for it to be removed, please contact us at info@cambridgebrainsciences.com.

(c) Payment Processing Information

When you pay for the CBS Services, we collect payment information from you such as credit card information for processing by our third party payment service provider. We retain the last four digits of your credit card in an encrypted format to link the payment that you have made to your Account. Aside from the last four digits of your credit card, we do not retain any payment processing information or any financial information such as credit card numbers. All such information is provided directly to our third party processor, Stripe Payments Canada Ltd., whose use of your personal information will be subject to the payment processor's own Privacy Policy and Terms of Service.

  1. Disclosure of Information

We may transfer or disclose information as follows:

(a) Service Providers Arrangements

Your information may be transferred (or otherwise made available) to our affiliates and other third parties who provide services on our behalf. Our service providers are given the information they need to perform their designated functions, and are not authorized to use or disclose personal information for their own marketing or other purposes.

Your information may be stored and processed by us, our affiliates and other third party service providers in the United States or other jurisdictions. In the event that personal information is transferred to the United States or other foreign jurisdiction, it will be subject to the laws of that jurisdiction and may be disclosed to or accessed by the courts, law enforcement and governmental authorities in accordance with those laws.

(b) Legal and Compliance

We and our service providers may provide your personal information in response to a search warrant or other legally valid inquiry or order, or to another organization for the purposes of investigating a breach of an agreement or contravention of law or detecting, suppressing or preventing fraud, or as otherwise required or permitted by applicable Canadian, US or other law or legal process. Your personal information may also be disclosed where necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims and to investigate or prevent actual or suspected loss or harm to persons or property.

(c) Sale of Business

Personal information may be provided to third parties in connection with a business transaction, including a merger or sale (including transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings) involving all or part of CBS or as part of a corporate reorganization, or stock or asset sale, or other change in corporate control, including for the purpose of determining whether to proceed or continue with such transaction or business relationship.

(d) Aggregated and Anonymized Data

When you participate in a Test, you are assisting our world-class research into neuroscience and cognition and improving the scientific value of the Tests themselves. The personal information we collect when you participate in Tests (such as your responses to queries) will be de-identified, aggregated and used for our research and analysis to help us better understand the Tests and serve our users. All data is analyzed anonymously and will not be presented in identifiable form. For example, results may be presented to indicate that the average score of a 27-year-old left-handed user for an attention Test is 53, but that right-handed users score 52. Any personal information that might identify a user will be kept confidential and not shared with any third party (except as set out below).

Information that is aggregated and anonymized so that it does not reasonably identify you may be shared with or sold to third parties.

  1. Safeguarding and Retention of Personal Information

We have implemented reasonable administrative, technical and physical measures in an effort to safeguard the personal information in our custody and control against theft, loss and unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure. We restrict access to your personal information on a need-to-know basis to employees and authorized service providers who require access to fulfill their job requirements.

We have personal information retention processes designed to retain personal information for no longer than necessary for the purposes stated above or to otherwise meet legal requirements.

  1. Access to Personal Information

You have the right to access, update and correct inaccuracies in your personal information in our custody and control, subject to certain exceptions prescribed by law.
