Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request.
The SATB2 Gene Foundation Contact Registry is used to inform parents/guardians of individuals with SATB2-associated syndrome about:
- SATB2-associated syndrome resources added to the closed resource portal
- opportunities to participate in research
- opportunities to contribute data
- discoveries about SATB2-associated syndrome that may impact care decisions
- Conference announcements
- Other special announcements, such as fundraising initiatives and volunteer opportunities
The contact registry database will not be shared with external organizations without your consent. Registrants will be provided with contact information about relevant research and survey efforts. These initiatives will include our own internal projects as well as the projects of outside researchers. We may use aggregate data from the contact registry to publish statistics about the incidence of SATB2-associated syndrome. For example, we may use contact registry data to say how many people have SATB2-associated syndrome, their age ranges, and how they are distributed geographically. You may opt-out of the contact registry at any time by contacting the SATB2 Gene Foundation.
Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
When it comes to the collection of information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The United States Federal Trade Commission enforces COPPA, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online. We comply with all applicable COPPA requirements and do not specifically market our Services to children under the age of 13 years old.
