Data Use and Disclosure

Personal Information

P2YP will not, under any circumstances, share a user’s personal data, such as name, phone number, address of afterschool program, name of organization, to any individual, entity or third party.

Passively Collected Information

When users complete the HEPA Mobile checklists, P2YP receives and stores this information in a secure database. Each user has access to their completed checklists through “View Your Program’s HEPA Progress” pages. Registered organizations that operate two or more programs will have access to the HEPA Mobile checklist data for the programs they operate. We also collect information from users when they complete checklists and their access to the “Helpful Tips” webpages, such as the date and time of access and what content was accessed. These aggregate usage statistics may be used to identify how users collectively interact with the system, report progress on how programs collectively are working towards HEPA goals, and modify content in order to provide the most relevant and optimal services. This type of aggregate data enables us to evaluate how often users use parts of the website or services so that we can make the website appealing to as many users as possible, and improve our services. In the aggregated reports, no individual programs or users will be identified. Again, P2YP never discloses aggregate information to a third party in a manner that would identify users or programs individually.

Aggregated Data

In an ongoing effort to better understand our users, P2YP may analyze the HEPA Mobile checklist data of users in aggregate form. This aggregate information does not identify individual users or programs. We may share this aggregate data with our affiliates. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective organizations, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes. [For example: P2YP may track use of resources to better understand which resources are most appealing and which need to be modified to meet the needs of the system users.] By using or accessing HEPA Mobile in any manner, you acknowledge that you accept and agree to the practices and policies outlined in this Data Use Disclosure, and you hereby consent that we may collect, use, and share your information as outlined.
