DATA COLLECTION AND USE
The myPlan app does not collect any personal identifying information from users. All information voluntarily entered into myPlan cannot be connected to an individual user. Our servers automatically collect information from users such as the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect the computer to the Internet, the average time spent on the app, date and time of visit, and pages clicked on, collectively known as “log data”. Log data and self-reported referral source will be used in a research study measuring utilization. This data is being collected between January 2017 and April 2019. After this period, the myPlan project will only be using the referral source data and log data to monitor and analyze use to increase myPlan’s functionality and informing long-term dissemination strategies. This information is being used in summary reports and does not identify specific users.
DATA STORAGE AND PROTECTION
All data collected by the myPlan app is stored on a secure server located within a large academic medical center following HIPAA guidelines for storage of medical and identifying information. Only authorized team members of the myPlan project have access to this data.
None of the data collected by myPlan is shared with any other entities or third-parties.
