Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining the type of information that Exco InTouch collects from the people who use our Services, when and how that information is shared with other parties, and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
The Information We Collect
Exco Breathe enables individuals to record information about their respiratory health through a variety of mechanisms including computer and mobile phone interfaces. In addition, we provide a way for people to share that information with others in their community, including individuals, health care providers, and public health agencies and organizations.
In the course of using our Services, Exco Breathe may also prompt you to provide certain information about yourself including your name, email address, date of birth, mailing address, and password. You may enter as much or as little information as they like and should not enter any information that you feel uncomfortable sharing.
We may also periodically ask you to complete short surveys about your experiences for research purposes or to improve our Services. Your participation in these surveys is not required, and your refusal to do so will not impact your experience on the site.
How Information about you and your Respiratory Health is used
To create the best possible tools, research and functionality for our community, Exco InTouch may use your personally identifiable information internally as needed to improve and deliver our Services. In addition, Exco InTouch may use your personally identifiable information to fulfill any request you make. When necessary, we may provide your personally identifiable information to approved vendors, for their use in assisting us with the maintenance and operation of our Services.
Exco InTouch is interested in better understanding the management and impact of asthma and in identifying and supporting better ways to address asthma at the public health level. In addition to serving the individual needs of our members, Exco InTouch provides information to Partners, such as public health agencies, including information for use in their activities and scientific research. Exco InTouch removes personally identifiable information that can reasonably be used to identify you prior to sharing information with these third parties. You are free to opt out of these programs at any time.
If you choose to share information about your respiratory health, it will be anonymized and combined with information from other members. The public and other members will be able to view aggregated information about asthma. Neither you nor your events will be identifiable in this aggregated information. Additionally, so that others can learn from your experiences, your demographic information (such as sex, age, and city) will be aggregated and made available to other members and partners. For example, we may report the number of patients in a given area experiencing an asthma exacerbation, or the number of individuals experiencing a particular symptom.
Exco InTouch may access and/or disclose your personal information if we believe such action is necessary to: (a) comply with the law or legal process served on Exco InTouch; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Exco InTouch (including the enforcement of our agreements; or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety and welfare of users of Exco InTouch services or members of the public.
Exco InTouch provides a variety of ways to share your information with others and to control the information that you share. You can view and set your sharing preferences on your profile section of the App at any time. If you have any questions or concerns about these preferences, please contact us.
Personally identifiable information, such as full name and email address, will never be revealed to others without your consent.
Because part of the value of Exco Breath is generated by aggregating voluntarily shared data from individuals in the community and providing that information to its members as well as to public health agencies, we hope that you feel comfortable enough to share as much information as possible about your respiratory health.
Finally, you should know that Exco InTouch uses industry standard precautions to help keep your data secure.
What else should I read?
We adhere to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles, as well as the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) that make up the U.S.- EU Safe Harbor Framework and U.S.- Swiss Safe Harbor Framework. You can find the principles and the FAQs, along with other information on the Safe Harbor program, at the website maintained by the U.S. Department of Commerce at http://export.gov/safeharbor/
What are the principles?
The principles apply to “personal information” (“PI”) which essentially means information that identifies you or is so linked to you or your device (like your phone or computer) that you reasonably can be identified. PI doesn’t include information that is public or that is “de-identified” (e.g., others reasonably can’t identify you).
These are the basic principles and our policy regarding them:
- Notice and Choice: in Part I we let you know about types of PI we collect and why, what we tend to do with it, types of third parties with authorized access, and your choices. Usually, the study team or supporters make PI determinations and we just follow their directions. We store PI for as long as advisable to support the study or deal with questions or documentation rules
- Onward Transfer: when Exco InTouch transfers PI to third parties (e.g. the sponsor of your clinical study) located outside the EU and Switzerland, the “onward transfer” principle says we should try to make them protect PI with the same care that Exco InTouch take. We will only transfer your PI to those third parties if they have agreed to comply with the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles.
- Security: this principle requires us to take reasonable precautions to protect PI from things like loss and unauthorized disclosure or access. We think we take more than ordinary precautions. When we are in a position to do so, we also endeavor to take reasonable steps to prevent unauthorized processing by third parties with whom we have contracts. However, we do not guarantee security because any security can encounter problems. When you sign this form, you are allowing the study doctor, sponsor or Exco InTouch to send you notices of any security incident to your mobile number or email address.
- Data Integrity: this principle asks us to collect only relevant PI for relevant purposes and to try to keep it accurate. We are not in a position to do that other than to provide the above security. We largely follow the directions of others in the study. If you have concerns about data integrity, please contact your study doctor.
- Access: this principle endeavors to give you access to PI we collect and to let you update and delete it etc. Because this is a research study, access will be restricted for most PI, although your study doctor can update some details such as your mobile number and email address. PI for the study itself usually cannot be accessed by you once you submit it. If you have questions, please contact your study doctor (or if there isn’t one, contact us at our address below).
- Enforcement: this principle encourages us to use a third party who will look at our compliance if you make a complaint. The name of that third party is below.
The principles, and our descriptions of them, are general and are not intended to limit any other legal or ethical rights.
Are we a member of the Safe Harbor?
We self-certified to the U.S. Department of Commerce our adherence to our policy on 15 January, 2013. We plan to keep participating, but might change our mind (in which case we’ll continue to deal with the PI we already collected in accordance with this policy). If you do not find our name listed at https://safeharbor.export.gov/list.aspx, please let us know (we’ll tell you if we withdrew or will try to find out why we are not listed).
Who can you contact if you don’t think we are complying with the Safe Harbor?
