The Study combines sensor, health, and usage data to allow participants to complete certain thinking and memory activities, respond to surveys, and receive notifications about cognitive health activities. This Study is available to residents of the United States who meet certain criteria for participation and have agreed to the “Informed Consent Form” (or “ICF”) for the Study. This Policy describes the collection, use, and/or disclosure of all data and/or information collected or accessed by the Study (called “Intuition Data”). Intuition Data includes “Study Data” as defined in the ICF. Participants will be emailed a copy of their signed ICF and can also view an unsigned copy of the ICF in the Study App.
By participating in the Study and/or otherwise providing us with your information, you consent to our collection, use, and disclosure (including transfer) of your information in accordance with this Policy. Please do not provide us with any information if you do not accept this Policy.
We may collect two types of information when you participate in the Study or otherwise access Study-related materials, including through the Study App and Study Website: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information. When this Policy uses the term “Intuition Data”, this includes both Personal Information and Non-Personal Information.
By “Personal Information,” we mean data that is associated with an identifiable individual, such as a name, physical address, phone number, or email address. Personal Information includes, for example, personally identifiable demographic information, mental health or medical information, behavioral or lifestyle survey responses, or medical history information, including information collected through the Study App on your Apple Watch or iPhone and other Study-related activities.
By “Non-Personal Information,” we mean information that is not associated with an identifiable individual. Non-Personal Information may include information which would otherwise be Personal Information, but which has been de-identified or aggregated.
We acquire Intuition Data through your participation in the Study and when you access or seek out Study information, including through the Study App and Study Website.
After you consent to participate in the Study, certain Intuition Data is collected through the Study App including your contact and demographic information, your health and activity information from the Apple Health app, as well as other Study activity information. For example, we collect information about how and when you use the Study App to help us better understand user behavior. The ICF describes the full listing of the categories of Intuition Data that may be collected, used, and/or disclosed as part of your participation in the Study, including information collected through the Study App, as part of enrollment identity verification, survey responses, and other information from virtual visits.
When you access the Study Website, we may use "cookies" and other technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons. These technologies are used to monitor website activity such as the number of users, their frequency of use, and which parts of the website they have visited. When you visit the Study Website, our servers automatically log your internet protocol (IP) address. The IP address is a unique number assigned to your computer to identify it whenever you are surfing the Web. The IP address is not used to identify or track you personally but is used to maintain communications with you as you move about the Website. While these technologies can tell us when you use the Study Website and which pages you visit, it cannot read data off your hard disk or mobile device. You can set your cookies when you first enter the Study Website by choosing your cookie preferences in the box that appears in front of the webpage. A link is provided at the bottom of the Study Website’s homepage that you can click anytime to bring up the cookie settings box to confirm or change your preferences.
We may collect, use, and disclose your Intuition Data, which includes your Personal Information, for the purposes listed below and, if you choose to participate in the Study, as otherwise described in the ICF:
We may also share your Intuition Data, which includes your Personal Information, if:
If you participate in, or have questions about, the Study, we may also share your Intuition Data with entities that provide services on our or Apple’s behalf as part of the Study, including vendors such as IQVIA, Inc. (“IQVIA”). IQVIA operates the Study Support Center and will have access to your Personal Information in order to assist you with any questions about your participation. Apple will not have access to any direct identifiers collected by the Study App or Study Support Center. However, if you call the Study Support Center for assistance with issues related to an Apple product (such as technical issues), an AppleCare support number may be provided to you. If you call AppleCare, Apple may have access to certain direct identifiers that you provide to AppleCare, but AppleCare records will not be linked with your Intuition Data. Individuals over the age of twenty-one (21) may participate in the Study and we will not knowingly collect Personal Information from minors under the age of eighteen (18). The Study Website and Study App are not directed to minors, and we request that minors not provide any information through the Website or App. If a minor has submitted information and you would like to request that such information be removed, please contact us as explained below under Study Contact Information section.
The security, integrity, and confidentiality of your information are extremely important to us. We have implemented technical, administrative, and physical security measures that are designed to protect your information from unauthorized access, disclosure, use, and modification. We regularly review our security practices to consider appropriate new technology and methods. We also periodically subject the Study to simulated intrusion tests and have developed comprehensive disaster recovery plans. However, please be aware that despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable.
After termination of the Study or if you withdraw or are withdrawn, Biogen and others described in this Policy and the ICF (including Apple) will keep the Intuition Data in accordance with any relevant applicable law or legal guidelines.
If you wish to contact us, have any inquiries or feedback on this Policy, or need more information on or access to data which you have previously provided to us, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Study Support Center at 833-216-0186.
Biogen may change this Policy from time to time. When updates are made, the version date (located at the bottom of this Policy) will also be updated to reflect that a revision occurred and will be made available in the Study App as well as on the Study Website. The updated Policy will take effect immediately, will supersede all earlier versions, and will apply to Intuition Data provided to us previously. Each time you access the Study Website or Study App and any updates, upgrades, new versions, documentation and content and services provided by or through Biogen, you acknowledge and agree that the latest version of this Policy shall apply.
We encourage you to reread this Policy periodically to see if there have been any changes that may affect you. We will notify you through the Study App of any material changes to this Policy. This Policy is not intended to and does not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.
Effective Date: February 27, 2023
