Terms & Conditions

By inquiring about the Saama Database Lock in a Day Challenge (the “Challenge”), you agree to be contacted by Saama and to allow Saama to use, maintain, store, and protect your personal data in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

Eligibility details are for informational purposes only. Saama, in its sole discretion, will determine your eligibility for the Challenge based on the information you disclose as part of the intake process. If Saama determines that you are eligible to participate in the Challenge, you will be notified by separate email. Eligibility depends on certain criteria, such as the size of your company, the types of clinical trials you sponsor, and the number of patients in–and stages of–your current clinical trials.

By completing enrollment in the Challenge, you represent that you have authority to proceed on behalf of your company. Should you agree to participate, you agree to reasonably cooperate with Saama in following the guidelines and procedures required for integrating, standardizing, and analyzing your data. Participation in the Challenge requires the use of our Smart Data Quality application, a technology-agnostic AI engine that sits on top of your current infrastructure. The application can be used immediately, and you’re only charged for the services you use based on a predetermined estimate.

Information you share with Saama during your participation in the Challenge may be anonymized and/or aggregated, and made available publicly in Saama marketing materials. This information may include: types of systems and processes involved, types of departments involved, and size and regional location of your company. Such information will never be directly associated with you, nor will you or your company be identifiable without express written permission. 

While we’re confident Saama can successfully get you from LPO to database lock in a day, we welcome the opportunity to help patients in need by donating $100,000 to your patient access program if we miss the deadline–even by just a few minutes! Total donations by Saama for the Challenge are capped at $1 million.

The Challenge is open to only the first 50 eligible participants.

The Challenge ends on DATE TBD.
