Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
Duquesne University Center for Integrative Health owns the information collected on this website. We only collect information that you voluntarily give us via this website or email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone. Identifiable information is gathered through this website. This information will be used for asthma screening purposes only. We will collect contact information via this website for follow-up purposes only.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Information collected at this website is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only personnel who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, school nurse facilitating surveys, researchers using data for reports) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment separate from this website.
In addition to the survey questions, you will be asked for some personal information. Your personal information will be kept confidential and only be used to contact you should you or your child require follow-up care based upon survey results. The following represents the information you will be asked or will be derived: Participating School ( derived from web address/URL if provided, e.g. clairton.pedasthmasurvey.org), gender, age (not birthdate), grade in school, ancestry, type of Insurance, Participant code or name/child’s name (see registration section below).
If you are a minor taking this survey, or if you are a parent/guardian taking the survey on behalf of a minor, you must follow local, state, and federal law. If a child under 13 has provided us with personal information without parental or guardian consent, the parent or guardian may contact us at the email address or phone number provided below.
Registration is not mandatory. If you’ve been given a participant code you may enter it at the end of the survey if you wish. If you have not been given a participant code you can enter your child’s name. This participant code will be used by Duquesne University to: 1) track surveys over time, 2) link surveys to participant information that is stored securely separate from this website. To correct any inaccuracies in information that you entered into the survey you may retake the survey and enter the same participant code.
