This website https://enVISionIgANstudy.com is intended to identify potential participants for a clinical research study (the enVISion study) that is evaluating an investigational drug called VIS649 for Immunoglobulin A Nephropathy (IgAN). This website is hosted by Merge, LLC (“MERGE”), a third-party vendor under contract to the sponsor of the study (see below) and is not a sponsor of the study. “Us” or “We” means MERGE. “User” or “You” means those individuals who access the website. The sponsor of the enVISion study and this website is Visterra, Inc., a pharmaceutical company with its registered address at 275 2nd Avenue, Waltham, MA, 02451, USA.
Users of this website are provided criteria to consider as part of a self-assessment to determine if they may be eligible to participate in the enVISion study. Users who believe they may be eligible are offered to contact a listed study clinic for further information about possible participation in the study. Based on the User’s medical history, testing and other information, the study clinic will make the final determination whether or not the User is qualified and approved to participate in the study. Meeting the requirements of the self-assessment, by itself, does NOT mean that a User is qualified and approved to participate in the study.
This website is provided for informational purposes only. Your use of the website does NOT create any legal relationship, whether by contract or otherwise, between Us or a study clinic and You, or the sponsor and You or another User. Your use of the website and decision to contact a listed study clinic is voluntary and without obligation.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE MAKE NO WARRANTIES REGARDING THE WEBSITE, THE ACCURACY AND COMPLETENESS OF THE INFORMATION CONTAINED THEREIN, AND ANY SERVICES PROVIDED. THEREFORE, THE WEBSITE, THE INFORMATION CONTAINED THEREIN AND ANY SERVICES ARE PROVIDED AND ACCEPTED BY USER “AS IS,” WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY WHATSOEVER. ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDED AND DISCLAIMED. WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE WEBSITE, INFORMATION CONTAINED THEREIN, OR ANY SERVICES WILL MEET USER’S REQUIREMENTS, WILL OPERATE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION, WILL BE ERROR-FREE, COMPLETELY SECURE, OR THAT ANY FAILURES WILL BE DETECTED AND CORRECTED. WE SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM AND DENY ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE COMPLETENESS, ACCURACY OR QUALITY OF THE WEBSITE, INFORMATION CONTAINED THEREIN OR ANY SERVICES PROVIDED.
We exercise no control over, and accept no responsibility for, any third-party associated with the website, the information contained therein or any services provided, including but not limited to the listed study clinics, which are independent contractors and outside MERGE’S management and control.
MERGE shall not be liable to User, or any third parties, for any consequential, indirect, punitive, special, exemplary, or incidental damages or expenses, or damages or expenses of any kind arising from loss of anticipated profits, business interruption, loss of use, loss of revenue, corruption of data, loss of goodwill, cost of capital, loss or damage to property or equipment, and loss of reputation or any and all other similar damages or loss whether in contract, tort, product liability (including negligence or strict liability), or otherwise in connection with or arising out of the use of the website, the information contained therein and any services provided even if We are advised of the possibility of the occurrence of such damages or expenses.
Because Users do not register on the website or otherwise provide their names, no personal information of Users, such as name, address, telephone number or email address, is retained, collected or shared. Users consider the self-assessment criteria anonymously. The choice to contact a listed study clinic solely rests with the individual User, and the website does not provide any identifying or other information about a User to any study clinic or to another third party.
The website may contain links to third parties, such as the study clinics. We do not manage or control these third-party websites. If you provide personal information to these linked websites, this personal information is governed by their privacy policies and/or applicable law. We are not responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with Your use or reliance on any content, advertising, products, services or other materials on or available from these linked sites.
To ensure the smooth operation of the website and ensure its effectiveness, We collect certain limited analytics information which does not include any personal or identifying information about Users, such as IP addresses, referring URL (if any), city-level location, browser and operating system and use analytics services such as Google Analytics, which We will only use in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
