PleasePrEPMe Privacy Policy

The privacy policy for PleasePrEPMe(PPM) has been adapted from our collaborators at Emory University's PrEP Locator.

This Website Privacy Statement explains how PleasePrEPMe handles the information that you provide or that is otherwise collected. This Website Privacy Statement does not apply to Google Maps API, which provides the maps and directions for PleasePrEPMe. Please refer to the Google Maps Terms of Use for further information.

PleasePrEPMe may collect information in two ways: Passive Collection and Information You Submit.

Passive Collection of Unidentifiable Information: PleasePrEPMe may collect information about your visits to the website, without you actively submitting such information. Unidentifiable information may be collected using various technologies and third party services, such as Google Analytics.

PleasePrEPMe collects the following information: IP address of users, non-identifiable search history including state, city, zip, and successful geolocation queries when using current location function (through Google Maps API).

Your Internet browser automatically transmits to PleasePrEPMe some of this unidentifiable information, such as the URL of the website you just visited, IP address, and the browser version your computer is operating. Passive information collection technologies can make your use of PleasePrEPMe easier by allowing the application to provide better service, customize based on consumer preferences, compile statistics, analyze trends, and otherwise administer and improve our services. Certain features of PleasePrEPMe may not work without use of passive information collection technologies.

Information collected by these technologies cannot be used to identify you without additional identifiable information and PleasePrEPMe will not match additional identifiable information with information collected through the use of such tracking technologies. Our collection of information cannot be traced back to any specific user and will be used only to improve our service.

Personal Information You Submit: PleasePrEPMe may collect Personal Information in two ways. The first is on the online form for suggesting a provider or clinic to add to the provider directory. The second is the online contact form for further questions or inquiry. Any names, email addresses, phone numbers, and information voluntarily provided will not be made public, shown or displayed on the website or its affiliates, nor be shared or used for any purpose outside of PleasePrEPMe unless we gain consent. Submission of clinic information through the “Add a Location” form is consent to publish. In order for PleasePrEPMe to protect your privacy, you should not provide PleasePrEPMe with any information that is not specifically requested. PleasePrEPMe’s database is encrypted in order to ensure security and integrity of stored information.

You may choose to opt-out or edit details of your clinic information on PleasePrEPMe at any time.
