Advantage Rigging, LLC will not knowingly use or disclose information about our users without notifying them and obtaining their consent. We allow our users to "opt-in" to special e-mail distribution lists rather than forcing them to "opt-out" of such services. We may make small changes to this policy statement on occasion, but we will not add any new uses and disclosures without adequate advance notice.
Advantage Rigging, LLC does not collects personally identifiable information and about users via direct user input. Advantage Rigging, LLC also uses Web logs, cookies, and conversion tracking via Google.
1. User Input
Registration is not required for use of AdvantageRigging.com. Anyone can visit the website, read our content, and fill requests. In the process of filling out this request, users are asked to provide non-identifiable information, such as disease ZIP code, city, state, or address.
As a service to our users, Advantage Rigging, LLC allows registered users to create their own user profiles. Here, users may store specific information that makes using the website easier. Advantage Rigging, LLC is committed to maintaining the privacy, confidentiality, and security of this information at all times.
Advantage Rigging, LLC wants you to know that if you disclose a privileged communication to us through our Website, it is possible that the information will lose its privileged status. If you are engaged in litigation, you may want to consult with your lawyer first. Advantage Rigging, LLC cannot advise users whether information may be privileged. Users with such concerns should contact an attorney for advice about legal privileges and its disclosure.
2. Web logs
Advantage Rigging, LLC uses standard Web logs that record basic data about people who visit AdvantageRigging.com. The following information is contained in these logs:
- The date and time of the visit
- The pages of our site viewed during the visit
- The IP address of the computer used to visit the site (Computers automatically generate an IP address as they surf the Internet. Static IP addresses are potentially identifiable, however dynamic IP addresses are usually not.)
- The type of Web browser used to view our site
- The Website visited immediately before coming to this site.
We do not normally seek to identify individuals from Web logs. However, Web logs may be used to identify an individual who we suspect tried to damage our Website or use it in an unauthorized way. If we have reason to believe that there has been a violation of computer security or related laws, we may share our Web logs with law enforcement agencies.
We use Web logs as a way of conducting our own basic market research and to study how our site is being used. We will periodically analyze the Web logs and use what we learn to make improvements or refinements to our Website. In addition, we may share our Web logs (which do not contain any individually identifiable information) with our partners to assist them in better designing their Websites or clinical trials.
Cookies are packets of information that a Website transfers to a user's computer for record-keeping purposes. They are a means of keeping track of a user's preferences during a visit to a Website. For example, AdvantageRigging.com users who search for events expect the application to "remember" their criteria from search to search so that this information does not have to be entered freshly for each search. In order to provide persistence of such search criteria, AdvantageRigging.com stores a unique identifier in a temporary, encrypted cookie. Then, when a new search is started, the identifier can be extracted from the cookie and used to request detailed search information for that user from our database.
All cookies received from AdvantageRigging.com, or from any site owned by Advantage Rigging, LLC are encrypted for security purposes. These encrypted cookies may appear as random or scrambled text.
These identifiers are stored in a "temporary" encrypted cookie that only exists during the browser's session with the site. Thus all personally identifiable information that a user enters on our site is stored in the secure AdvantageRigging.com database as outlined above, and not in a permanent cookie.
AdvantageRigging.com may also stores certain non-user-identifying data in "permanent" encrypted cookies. These values expire 24 hours after the last use of the AdvantageRigging.com site. They keep track of the user's current preferences regarding editorial content, as well as branding details for components of the site that are incorporated into the websites of Advantage Rigging, LLC's partners.
In addition, visitors clicking through to AdvantageRigging.com from either Google or Yahoo! Search engine sponsored Ads will have a cookie placed on their computer for 30 days. This allows Google and Yahoo!, along with Advantage Rigging, LLC, to measure the effectiveness of their search engine advertising.
No cookies are used to track an identifiable individual's movement through the site or on the Internet. They are only used to enhance the usability of the site.
If you do not want the information described above to be collected via cookies, you can turn off cookies in your browser.
Use and Disclosure
Email Notification Services
Users who opt-in to email notification services will receive one email for each condition that they expressed an interest in.
Sharing Information with Third Parties
It is possible that we could be forced to disclose personally identifiable user information in response to a search warrant, subpoena, or court order. This is a possibility that could confront any record keeper. Disclosures may also be appropriate to protect our legal rights, to protect the security or integrity of our Website, to take precautions against liability, or during emergencies if physical safety is believed to be at risk. These types of disclosures are unlikely, but they are possible and so we describe them here.
Aggregate Data Use
Advantage Rigging, LLC and the sponsors of AdvantageRigging.com may use aggregate data, derived from our Web logs to study how our site is being used. We will periodically analyze this aggregate data and use what we learn to make improvements or refinements to our website. In addition, we may share this aggregate data (which does not contain any uniquely identifying information) with our partners to assist them in better designing their websites.
Changes to Use and Disclosure Practices
Access, Correction, Deletion, and Removal of Information
Users who do not register for email notification services and do not opt-in to be referred for a particular trial will automatically have their personally identifiable information deleted from our systems.
Users who register for email notification services will have personal information, including email address, stored in our systems.
Users may also correct or delete their personal information by emailing Advantage Rigging, LLC at Customer Service.

Like all responsible Websites, Advantage Rigging, LLC maintains backup files as a protection against natural disasters, equipment failures, or other disruptions. Backup files protect you and us because they lessen the risk of loss of valuable data. Removing a record from our principal files does not remove that record from any of the backup systems. It may take up to six months before all information in a backup record is completely erased through the normal recycling of backup files. In the meantime, as long as backup records exist, they receive the same privacy and security protections as our other records.
Storing our data in a secure manner is essential to our business and for your protection as a user. Maintaining a secure system is in the best interests of our users and our partners. Advantage Rigging, LLC stores personally identifiable data using industry standard physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to secure data against foreseeable risks such as unauthorized use, access, disclosure, destruction, and modification. Advantage Rigging, LLC provides users with default encryption during the transmission of their personally identifiable information regardless of the user's browser type. Our servers are physically located in a sophisticated facility that provides emergency back-up electrical power generators, fire suppression systems, and guard protection 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Advantage Rigging, LLC is committed to protecting the privacy of children. We recognize and strive to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. This site is not intended for or designed to attract minors. Users under the age of 18 should not submit information to our site, and we do not collect information from any user we have reason to believe is a child under the age of 18.
