BioCanRx also collects personal information from you if you submit a questionnaire as part of BioCanRx’s Patient Partner database. Based on the information provided in the questionnaire, you can create a patient profile that is posted on our website. While the amount of identifiable personal information posted on our website is limited, if you have included any personal details in your patient profile (e.g. residence, employment, associations, healthcare providers, etc), this may allow some people who view your patient profile to determine my identity.
