This Privacy Statement outlines how Syneos Health safeguards for privacy and manages Personal Information.
Syneos Health has been contracted to collect and analyze data on behalf of Allergan (the "Sponsor") for the BIFS program.
"Personal Information" is defined as information submitted to and/or collected by Syneos Health via the BIFS Electronic
Data Capture System (the "BIFS eRegistry") or as paper copy. Such information is collected when a physician or participant
submits participant-related information via the BIFS eRegistry and includes her name, address and/or other contact information.
Syneos Health can also collect information about visits to the BIFS eRegistry without an individual actively submitting
information through various automated digital means, such as cookies and internet tags. Although the information collected
by such automated digital means does not directly identify specific individuals, internet Web browsers automatically transmit
information to the BIFS eRegistry regarding the software operating on a user's computer, such as IP Address and browser
version. Information collected by these automated digital means cannot be used to identify individuals without additional
Any Personal Information physicians or participants provide will be used only by Syneos Health employees assigned to the
BIFS program in their analyses and to contact participants as needed in connection with the BIFS program. Syneos Health
will not share this Personal Information with any third party without the participant's consent, except Syneos Health
may share Personal Information with LexisNexis solely for purposes of tracking a participant's contact information
throughout the BIFS program. Syneos Health will not disclose any Personal Information it gathers from a physician or
participant except as set forth in this Privacy Statement or as specifically agreed to by the participant. Syneos
Health reserves the right to make disclosures of any Personal Information submitted to the BIFS eRegistry to the
extent that it may be required to do so by law, rule, regulation, subpoena, order, decree, decision or other legal
process. In the event that Syneos Health is legally compelled to disclose Personal Information to a third party, Syneos
Health will attempt to notify the physician and/or participant accordingly unless doing so would violate the law or
court order. In addition, Syneos Health may disclose Personal Information as further described below.
Any Personal Information submitted through the BIFS eRegistry will not be included in any reports or publications
resulting from this BIFS program. Any publication or presentation of the results will be an overall summary (i.e.,
no individual participant will be identified and no results for any individual participant will be presented).
Personnel from the following organizations may examine the BIFS eRegistry program's summary data: Syneos Health,
the Sponsor and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
