Your use of Inato's Marketplace

Inato’s Clients have access to an extensive database of worldwide Sites and Investigators. By using Inato’s set of proprietary technology the Client is able to determine which Sites are the most relevant to conduct a specific clinical trial, based on various criteria such as: patient access, investigator motivation, competition, site staff etc.

Marketplace features:

Inato offers a performance site-sorting algorithm helping to hone in on the number of relevant Sites to perform a given trial. Clients can then contact the identified Sites through the Marketplace in order to assess their potential interest in the study, and other characteristics matching the study’s specifics.

A seamless survey technology is provided to the Client for the Investigators of the relevant Sites to complete. After a certain period of time, Inato analyses the results from the surveys to give the Client a global, cost-efficient recruitment scenario narrowing the Sites for the clinical trial to only the best suited candidates.

Conditions for a Demo Request:

Any potential Client can request a free demo to Inato, in order to get a glimpse of what the Marketplace has to offer them.

First, the Client must file a demo request form available on the Website. Shortly after, our teams will set up a live demo in order to expose the various features on the Marketplace.

If the Client finds the live demo satisfactory, he can subscribe to our user license in order to get full access to the Marketplace.

Licence terms:

Inato provides its Clients with a non-transferable license for their personal access and use of the Marketplace.

The license is granted for the amount of time necessary to perform one study, in return for which the Client will pay an agreed price.

You may not transfer, redistribute or sublicense the Marketplace. You may not copy, reverse-engineer, decompile, disassemble, attempt to derive the source code of, modify, or create derivative works of the Marketplace, any updates, or any part thereof (except as and only to the extent that any foregoing restriction is prohibited by applicable law or to the extent as may be permitted by the licensing terms governing use of any open-sourced components included with the Marketplace).

Investigators' access to the Marketplace:

Investigators can register at any time on the Marketplace in order to be contacted directly by Clients who are interested in their profile for a specific study. Accessing and using the Marketplace is free for Investigators, under the double condition that they will use the Marketplace (i) according to the Terms, (ii) for their personal use only.

All Investigators must keep strictly confidential any information about a study or clinical trial, as well as information on the Clients.

Should an Investigator breach these obligations, Inato and/or the Client may engage any possible action in order to seek remedy for the prejudice.

Intellectual property:

As you access Inato’s Marketplace, you will be exposed to our Inato Technology (that is, the software, code, proprietary methods and systems used to provide the services and other Inato hardware and software products) owned by us under EU and international intellectual property laws.
