ZipTrials is a unique clinical trial registration site that connects interested participants with research studies that are actively seeking volunteers. Showcasing a diverse offering of available clinical trials, ZipTrials takes the stress out of registering or advertising for research studies. With easy-to-use functionality and 24/7 availability, ZipTrials directs study inquiries directly to interested research coordinators and streamlines the registration process. Our users can find a study in only three clicks, and our clients can easily track study inquiries anywhere they can access their inbox.
Not only is the process seamless, it’s also 100 percent confidential – ZipTrials does not share any personal or private user information or medical history.
ZipTrials works closely with medical research facilities to find study participants quickly, while also educating the public about the unmatched benefits of such medical research. And unlike other clinical trial recruitment sites, we reinforce these efforts through aggressive advertising in key markets to make sure we’re highly visible to a broad cross-section of the general public. ZipTrials gives our clients a competitive edge when it comes to recruiting volunteers, and they continue to work with us because they see results.
In addition, ZipTrials is a trusted source for the most up-to-date medical news and trending health stories. Our reporters are in the thick of it, covering the most recent and newsworthy clinical trial news.
Since its inception in 2011, ZipTrials has grown significantly. We are continually establishing vital relationships with new medical facilities while delivering unparalleled response rates to existing clients. And our ever-expanding reach continues to acquire new markets across the United States, and eventually beyond.
ZipTrials is part of the Metro Newspaper Network, which reaches nearly one million unique users each month. Attracting an active, well-educated metropolitan audience, Metro is a free daily newspaper written and designed for young, ambitious professionals. Local, national and international news and colorful features are presented without any bias and showcase a proudly urban attitude and style.

The information that ZipTrials gathers through our Services falls in to two categories: (a) information that you voluntarily supply to us; and (b) information collected automatically as you use our Services. Third-party providers and advertisers featured on, or linked to from, our Service may also gather information through processes that we do not control and subject to their own separate privacy policies which may differ from ours.
Information You Provide to Us. ZipTrials may collect and store information, personal or otherwise, that you voluntarily supply either while on the Website or in responding, via email or other method, to a feature published on the Website. Some examples of this type of information include demographic information which you may submit when you sign up for access to certain features on the Service, information (such as your name or email address) that you submit online when you register for newsletters or email updates on the Website, information that you post on message boards or other public areas of the Website, and information contained in search requests or questions that you submit to the Website. If you decline to supply or provide ZipTrials with certain information while using the Service, you may not be able to use or participate in some or all of the features offered through the Service. Participation in the Services are entirely voluntary and you may decline to participate at any time. Information collected about users may be used by ZipTrials and our affiliates and licensees to provide users with the features of the Website, to enable us to provide the products you requested, to send you email notifications with news about our services and products, to perform statistical analysis of user behavior in order to measure interest in the various areas of our site for product development purposes and to inform advertisers as to how many users have seen or “clicked” their advertisements. We will disclose site usage information to third parties only in aggregate.
Automatically Collected Information. ZipTrials also collects and stores information that is generated automatically as you navigate through the Website. For example, to enhance your experience on the Website, ZipTrials uses a standard feature found in browser software called a “cookie.” Cookies are small files that your web browser places on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes. By showing how and when visitors use the ZipTrials site, cookies help us track user trends and patterns and to show users the most relevant material available on the Service. Cookies also may save you the trouble of having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of the Website where you may have made a selection or preference before. ZipTrials also uses web beacons (also known as “single-pixel GIFs”) to access cookies and to count users who visit the Website or who open any HTML-formatted email messages ZipTrials may publish and send to you. Another example of information that ZipTrials automatically collects as you navigate the Website is information about your computer’s connection to the Internet. This information allows us, among other things, to improve the delivery of our web pages to you and to measure traffic on the Website.
Mobile Device IDs and Location-Based Information. Certain mobile devices, including smart phones and tablet devices, contain unique device IDs that can be used to identify their physical location. Mobile devices also typically transmit caller ID data (which may include a phone number) when used to transmit a telephone call or text message. When you use mobile devices to access the Website or our Services, ZipTrials may collect and transmit unique device IDs and collect caller ID data, information about your wireless carrier, the make, model and operating system of your device and information about how you navigate within the Website. With your consent, ZipTrials also may use precise geolocation technology such as GPS or WiFi triangulation to collect information about the exact location of your mobile device. ZipTrials uses this information to provide you the content and services you request, tell you about offers we think you will value, and improve your experience using mobile applications, the Website and other Services.
Information Collected in Connection With Ad Serving, Targeting and Analytics. ZipTrials and its service providers may use information collected when you use the Website to serve interest-based advertisements on the Services and on other third-party websites that participate in advertising on the Website.
ZipTrials also may work with other third-party advertising companies and data providers to target and serve some of the advertisements you see on the Website, to send emails on our behalf, and to provide related analytics, forecasting, optimization and audience segmentation services. These companies may use their own cookies, web beacons and similar technologies to collect navigation information from our users that they may use, sometimes in conjunction with similar information gathered through other websites, to deliver advertisements tailored to match perceived user interests and/or for other purposes. To enable you to receive customized ads, content or services, some of these companies may also place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser that reflects de-identified demographic data or other information about you that they obtained from third-party data suppliers. No personally identifying data will be captured or used in the cookies.
3. How the Information is Used.
ZipTrials uses the information it collects from you while you are using the Service in a variety of ways, including using the information to customize features and advertising that appear on the Website and to customize your experience on the Website. ZipTrials does not use the information that it collects online from you while you are using the Service and ZipTrials will not allow third parties to use such information to send promotional offers directly to you unless you have indicated to ZipTrials that you would like to receive such promotional offers, either from ZipTrials or third parties. If you choose to receive these promotional offers, then your information may be used for direct mail or email marketing.
Except as otherwise noted herein or within the Services, we may share any information that we collect through our Services, including without limitation, your name, email address (and any other information we combine with that information) with our affiliates, our provider and service partners and with selected third-party marketers of products and services potentially of interest to you. If you do not agree with these terms of service, do not use the Website and do not provide any personal information to ZipTrials.
Please remember that whenever you may disclose or publish personal information (for example, on message boards or in chat areas) that information is in the public domain and can be seen, collected and used by others not affiliated or authorized by ZipTrials, and it is therefore not possible for ZipTrials to be responsible for any unauthorized collection and use of information that you choose to disclose online.
Be advised that ZipTrials may occasionally release information about visitors when release is appropriate to comply with law, to enforce our Terms & Conditions agreement, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to our site, the public or ZipTrials.
Please also note that as our business grows, we may buy or sell various assets. In the unlikely event that ZipTrials, some or all of our assets, or our site is acquired by another company, information on our visitors may be among the transferred assets.
