Asthma PACT™ Privacy Statement :
The purpose of this statement is to inform you about how the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) intends to use information submitted by you about yourself or your child, if submitted on behalf of your child, as you utilize Asthma PACTTM (Personal Assessment and Control Tool).
Asthma PACTTM is provided by AAFA for educational purposes as a public service.
AAFA is not a health care provider and any information received through Asthma PACTTM is not intended to substitute for professional medical advice. Asthma PACTTM generates reports based on information that you enter into the system. The more information you enter, the more you will learn from the Asthma PACT™ reports. AAFA recommends that you share and discuss the reports with your health care provider.
Registering for Asthma PACTTM indicates your understanding of AAFA's Privacy Statement for Asthma PACTTM and acceptance of its policies on use of the data you submit for yourself or your child. Please review the following statement before registering for Asthma PACTTM.
How Your Information Will Be Used: Asthma PACTTM is owned by Asthma Management Services (AMS) and operated on its server. Registration is required to use Asthma PACTTM. When you register, you will be asked to provide your first name and the first initial of your last name, birth year, zip code and favorite color. These will serve as your unique identifier. This unique identifier will enable you to save your work and return to Asthma PACTTM to complete the initial assessment tool and also, at a later date, to retake the assessment tool.
"Health information" means information entered by you into the Asthma PACTTM program which is directly and specifically related to you or your child's medical condition. The only personal contact information you will be asked to provide are your first name, zip code and birth year. However, none of the personal contact information provided by you will allow AAFA to identify or contact you.
AMS will aggregate, that is, combine the "health information" you provide with that of other Asthma PACTTM participants, without linking it to any participants' personal contact information provided during registration. AMS will provide AAFA with monthly statistical reports on the number of new users, repeat users, total users and anonymous, aggregated reports of all participants' "health information". The aggregated data that AAFA receives will not be linked to any personal contact information, thus cannot linked to you personally.
After completing the Asthma PACTTM, you will have an opportunity to provide additional information about you through "pop up windows" or links to AAFA's website. For example, you may be asked to provide your email address directly to AAFA and your permission for us to send an email message to you. This would be for the sole purpose of reminding you to retake the Asthma PACTTM assessment tool three to six months later and receive a follow-up report. The email address you provide directly to AAFA will not be linked to any health information you provided through the Asthma PACTTM program. You will also have an opportunity to provide additional information in order to receive specified services and information from AAFA. If you choose to provide this information directly to AAFA, it will be used only for the purposes for which you have agreed.
Disclaimer: You will be entering information about yourself into AAFA's website, www.aafa.org, via the Internet. The information you submit is stored on AMS's secure servers; however, AAFA cannot guarantee the privacy or security of this information in transit. AAFA is not responsible in any way for AMS's data collection, data confidentiality, data security or data distribution for the Asthma PACT™. AAFA has no direct access to the personal information or health information provided by you.
