We highly value your privacy and make this policy easily available throughout our site to assist you in understanding the handling of information in the course of using this Site. By using this Site on any computer, mobile phone, tablet, or other device or voluntarily providing personal information to us, you consent to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

1. Collection of Personal Information from Site Users

Information Collected Automatically

Each time you visit the Site, we may automatically collect certain types of information. We may use “cookies” of different types to recognize your computer. A cookie is a small text file that a website, online application, or e-mail may save to your internet browser and/or your computer’s hard drive for use in subsequent visits to the Site or other sites.

We may collect any information, such as your first and last name, email address, and telephone number that you provide when you interact with us.

4. Google Analytics and Cookies

We use Google Analytics to monitor activity on the Site. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the gathering, collection and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. Google Analytics uses “cookies,” which are small pieces of information stored by your browser or other application on your computer's browser or hard drive. The cookies are used to connect your computer with information stored about your online activity, searches and preferences both within the same website visit and from one visit to the next on the Site and/or other websites. Some examples of this data include your preferences, user specific information on pages accessed, searched terms or addresses entered, and previous visits to the Site. The information generated by the cookies about your use of this Site is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google might transfer the personal information collected via this technical procedure to third parties.

To learn more about how Google Analytics collects and processes data, please visit: “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps” located at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners.

The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive new cookies or how to disable cookies altogether. If you reject cookies, you may not be able to participate in certain activities. The Site does not control and does not guarantee the effectiveness of browser-based tools for managing cookies.

5. Links to Other Websites

This Site may contain links to other sites that are not controlled in any way by us. Please be aware of this when you click on any such links; we are not responsible for the privacy practices and/or policies of any website other than our own. Consequently, we strongly suggest that you review the privacy policy of every website you visit, whether or not they are linked to by our own site.

6. Registration and Opt-Out

Registration is not required in order to use or access this website.

We also provide visitors to our website the opportunity to opt-in to receive communications from our partner organization, Metropolitan United Methodist Church. In this case, we ask the visitor for their name and phone number. Vaccine Ambassadors from Metropolitan United Methodist Church will contact the visitor to assist with making COVID-19 vaccine appointments. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications by emailing us at bamavaxinfo@pih.org.

7. Access to Personal Identifiable Information

If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer wish us to possess your information, you may request correction, updating, or deletion of your information by emailing us at bamavaxinfo@pih.org.

8. Data Security

We use industry-standard techniques on the Site to help to protect any personal information you have provided to us from loss, misuse or alteration. However, please be aware that no method of electronic storage can ever be 100% secure. Therefore as is the case with any organization - we are not in a position to guarantee the absolute security of your information. In this regard, we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data while you are on the Internet. At a minimum, we encourage you to make sure that you are using a secure browser as you surf the Internet.

You may submit any questions you may have about our security procedures by emailing us at bamavaxinfo@pih.org.

9. Children’s Privacy

Under Age 13Our Site is not specifically directed toward children, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from persons under the age of 13 on our Site without verifiable parental consent. If we learn that a child under the age of 13 has submitted personally identifiable information online without parental consent, we will take all reasonable measures to delete such information from our databases and to not use such information for any purpose (except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required or allowed by law). If you become aware of any personally identifiable information we have collected from children under 13, please contact us at bamavaxinfo@pih.org.

Under Age 18

Minors under 18 years of age may have the Personal Information that they provide to us through the Site deleted by sending an email to bamavaxinfo@pih.org requesting deletion. Please note that, while we make reasonable efforts to comply with such requests, deletion of your personal information does not ensure complete and comprehensive removal of that data from all systems.

11. Do Not Track

Do Not Track (DNT) is a privacy preference that users can set in some web browsers, allowing users to opt out of tracking by websites and online services. At the present time, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has not yet established universal standards for recognizable DNT signals and therefore, the Site does not recognize DNT.

12. Retention of Personal Information

Personal information that we collect, access or process will be retained only as long as necessary for the fulfilment of the purposes for which it was collected, unless otherwise provided in agreements between you and Partners In Health or as required or authorized by law. Personal information that is no longer required to fulfill the identified purposes will be destroyed, erased or made de-identified.

13. Changes to Privacy Policy

We may change this privacy policy from time to time, including as required to keep current with rules and regulations, new technologies and security standards. When we do, we will post the change(s) on our website. If we change the policy in a material and retroactive manner, we will provide appropriate notice to you.
