Some of the information you may choose to provide as a Registered Member is the same information that "covered entities" must keep private according to the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 ("HIPAA") and its implementing regulations (for example, the medications you may be taking); however, neither Denali nor EngageParkinsons are "covered entities" or subject to HIPAA and its implementing regulations.  Further, this website is not meant to serve as a way for Denali to provide safety information related to any of its investigational therapies or clinical trials, nor is it meant to serve as a way for you to provide any adverse reporting information to Denali if you are taking any of its investigational therapies as part of a clinical trial. 


We take seriously the trust you have placed in us with your information.

A. Data Retention

We may retain your personal or other information for as long as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our rights, or as long as we provide you with the products and services associated with EngageParkinsons. We may delete your personal or other information at any time, except as set forth herein or as required by law. 

B. Data Protection

To protect against unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure, or use (collectively, “Unauthorized Processing”), we maintain administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to protect the information you provide and that we collect about you. For example, the website encrypts the transmission of information through EngageParkinsons by using secure transmission technology. Unfortunately, despite these efforts, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us. In addition, we are not responsible for the security of information you transmit to EngageParkinsons over networks that we do not control, including the Internet and wireless networks. As a result, we will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from any Unauthorized Processing of your information.
