Schulman Associates Institutional Review Board, Inc. (“Schulman”) is committed to respecting and protecting the privacy of individual website users and our clients.

This Privacy Policy sets forth our current privacy practices pertaining to those portions of Schulman’s website (the “Website”) that are publicly available. (If Schulman has provided you with a user name and password in order to permit entry to the secure, restricted areas of the Website (WebPortal 3D, e-Submission and SiteAccess 1.0), a separate privacy policy will apply to your access to those areas.) By accessing and using the Website at, you acknowledge that you understand Schulman’s Privacy Policy and agree to the uses and practices described herein.

Information Collected: Schulman may collect non-personally identifiable information from and about its Website users. Such information may include, but not be limited to user internet protocol address; type of user browser or computer; number of links a user accessed via this Website; state from which the user accessed the site; date and time user accessed the Website; internet service provider name; and pages viewed on the Website. Schulman will not collect personally identifiable user information through the public portion of the Website unless the user voluntarily submits such information through, for example, requests for information regarding Schulman’s services or Website technical assistance. Personally identifiable information necessary to fulfill such requests may include name, address, e-mail address, fax number and telephone number.

Use of Information: Non-personally identifiable information collected through the Website will be used only for the purpose of information systems administration and management of the Website.

Schulman restricts access to client information to its officers, employees, Board members, and consultants who need to know such information and who are required to protect confidential information. Because Internet security cannot be completely guaranteed, however, Internet transmission to or receipt of information from the Website by the user will be undertaken at the user’s own risk. Schulman provides no warranty as to the absolute security of information users transmit to or receive from the Website, but we will utilize reasonable and best efforts to protect such information on our systems.
