Introducing: World's Largest Sleep Study - help neuroscientists uncover how sleep affects the brain Learn more
Thank you for subscribing to our newsletter! We can't wait to share our latest news on brain sciences.
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 email@example.com.
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.
(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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
(c) Payment Processing Information
(d) Information We Collect When You Visit Our Websites or Use Our Applications
When you install the CBS Mobile Applications or use a computer, tablet, smart phone or other device to access the CBS Websites, we may collect information about the device and how you use it. This information may include the type of device, your operating system, your browser (for example, whether you used Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome or another browser), your internet service provider, your domain name, your internet protocol (IP) address, your device identifier (or UDID), the date and time that you accessed our service, the website that referred you to the CBS Websites, the web pages you requested, the date and time of those requests and your physical location.
We use the information described above to:
(a) provide the CBS Services to you which include, but are not limited to allowing users to test their cognition and track it over time, as well as comparing their results to others;
(b) maintain, enhance and modify the CBS Services;
(c) communicate with you, where such communications may include, but are not limited to, informing you of developments to the CBS Services;
(d) assess whether the results of the Tests are affected by factors such as age, occupation, education level, stress, sleep and physical activity;
(e) comply with legal and regulatory requirements;
(f) promote our products and services; and
(g) provide you with offers that might interest you.
We may use information for any purpose if we aggregate and anonymize it so that it no longer reasonably identifies you.
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.
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.
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. You may make a request to access, update and/or correct inaccuracies in your personal information we have in our custody or control by emailing or writing to us at the contact information set out below. We may request certain personal information for the purposes of verifying the identity of the individual seeking access to their personal information records.
We also use in-app tracking technologies to understand how the CBS Services function and are used. You can stop all collection of data generated by the use of the CBS Mobile Applications by uninstalling the CBS Mobile Applications.
The CBS Websites may contain links to other websites that are not owned or controlled by us. We have no control over, do not review and are not responsible for the privacy policies of or content displayed on such other websites. When you click on such a link, you will leave our service and go to another site. During this process, another entity may collect personal information from you.
