Privacy Policy

Medidata Solutions, Inc. ("Medidata" or "We") have created this Privacy Policy to explain why we collect particular information and how we will protect your personal privacy within our Web Site. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for the Web Site(s) located at the URLs www.medidatasolutions.com and www.mdsol.com, or any successor Site (collectively, the "Web Site" or "Site"). Medidata reserves the right to change this policy at any time by posting a new privacy policy at this location. Therefore, you are responsible for periodically checking the Privacy Policy for changes.
 

Safe Harbor

Medidata complies with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework and the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework as set forth by the United States Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from European Union member countries and Switzerland. MissionMode has certified that it adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement. To learn more about the Safe Harbor program, and to view Medidata's certification, please visit http://export.gov/safeharbor/index.asp.

Medidata has selected a third party to serve as its independent recourse mechanism (IRM) for dispute resolution. The E.U. Data Protection Authorities (DPAs) and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) will be used for dispute resolution which will be available to investigate unresolved complaints involving “human resources data”. In addition, the DPA and the FDPIC will be used to resolve all other disputes and to investigate unresolved complaints involving other types of data (e.g. client and customer data).

If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint, or if your complaint is not satisfactorily addressed by Medidata, you may contact either the E.U. DPAs panel at ec-dppanel-secr@ec.europa.eu or individual E.U. DPAs (see http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/bodies/authorities/eu/index_en.htm). The contact information for the Swiss FDPIC can be found at: http://www.edoeb.admin.ch/kontakt/index.html?lang=en.
