Power aggregates data from clinical research studies sponsored or funded by a broad range of public and private organizations around the world. Not all studies listed on Power are funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) or other agencies of the U.S. Federal Government. Not all listed studies are regulated and/or reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or other governmental entities.
Information on Power is provided by study sponsors and investigators, and they are responsible for ensuring that the studies follow all applicable laws and regulations. Power does not verify the scientific validity or relevance of the submitted information beyond a limited quality control review for apparent errors, deficiencies, or inconsistencies.
Choosing to participate in a study is an important personal decision. Before you participate in a study, discuss all options with your health care provider and other trusted advisors.
We may collect a variety of information from or about you or your devices from various sources, as described below.
Information You Provide to Us
Registration and Profile Information.
If you sign up for a profile we will use that profile to connect you with potential clinical trials. Your profile will contain personal data (such as your name, email address, phone number, date of birth, address, etc). We will also collect health information from you as a part of your profile. This data will be used to provide relevant trial options for you. This data will also be used to connect you with relevant clinical trial teams. Trials may invite you to participate based on anonymized information in your profile. We will not share your personal information with trials until you request to be connected. To protect your privacy, by default we will not share your actual email address and phone number with clinical trial teams. Instead, clinical trial teams will have access to a) an email alias that forwards messages to your personal email, and b) a phone number alias that forwards calls and text messages to your personal phone.

If you post your clinical trial on our Services, we will collect information related to the clinical trial such as the eligibility criteria, duration of the study, and phase of clinical testing.
