Does PediaFed ask for personal information?
PediaFed collects some personal information for limited purposes. PediaFed may ask for your name, email address, and other personal information when you register for and/or use our services so that we can provide you with information and services that you have requested, respond to your questions, display content according to your preferences, and contact you if necessary. We also may ask for such information at other times, when needed.
How does PediaFed use personal information?
PediaFed's goal in collecting personal information is to provide you with the most useful Web experience possible and meeting our reporting obligations under applicable tax law. By knowing about you, PediaFed is able to deliver relevant services, content, and other benefits.
Will PediaFed disclose personal information?
No, PediaFed will not disclose personal information to third parties, without your permission or as described below, when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, or to protect the property rights of PediaFed.
PediaFed may disclose aggregated user statistics (for example, 15% of our offices use a vaccine schedule with Comvax) in order to describe our services to prospective participants, manufacturers, and suppliers, and for other lawful purposes. In such cases, third parties will not receive data about individuals, only information about characteristics of groups of users.
What happens if you disclose personal information to third parties via PediaFed?
From time to time, you may choose to disclose personal information via PediaFed. For example, if you send another participant an email message via PediaFed, you will disclose your email address and the contents of your message to that other participant. Likewise, if you request product information or make a purchase through a manufacturer/supplier that you find via PediaFed, you may disclose personal information to obtain desired goods, services, and/or information. You also may post messages to bulletin boards or chat areas, allowing others to see the contents of your message and possibly your name and email address.
Please remember that if you contact a third party and/or disclose personal information to a third party, the third party may collect personal information from you. Because PediaFed does not own or control third parties, third parties are responsible for how they use personal information. PediaFed has no responsibility or liability for their actions or policies. For further information about how a third party uses personal information, please contact the third party directly.
Will PediaFed disclose my email address to others?
No, PediaFed will not disclose your email address to people outside PediaFed (or not under PediaFed control) unless you ask us to.
Will PediaFed use my information for direct mailings?
PediaFed may on occasion send you information concerning the health, development, and well being of children and families, and on other topics that might be of interest. PediaFed may send you information concerning the Vaccine Purchase Program, or other programs of interest to our participants.
What else should I know?
Please remember that whenever you voluntarily disclose information online -- for example, through message boards or to request information -- the information can be collected and used by others. In other words, if you post personal information online in public areas, you may receive unsolicited messages from others in return. Also, while we strive to protect members' personal information, PediaFed cannot ensure the security of information that you transmit to us via the Internet, and you do so at your own risk. PediaFed uses the most up-to-date Internet security to safeguard it’s site so you are not at risk for disclosures on our secure site. Finally, please remember that you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any passwords or account information.
We at PediaFed want to work with you to develop the best service possible. Please contact us if you have any questions.
