(Updated January 2017)
AdvoConnection, one of the DiagKNOWsis family of patient support activities, is committed to respecting the privacy and security of our users. Our goal is to provide you with the information, resources, and services that are most relevant and helpful to you.
To demonstrate our commitment to your privacy, we have prepared this statement disclosing our privacy practices. Here you will learn what personal identifying information of yours is collected, how and when we might use your information, how we protect your information, who has access to your information, and how you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.
Information We Collect and How We Use It
When you register to find an advocate, we will ask you for some personal information. This information is intended only to see how users access the advocate information they need. When you supply us with your email address, we may add it to our email notification list. If you receive an unwanted email from us, please know you may opt out at any time.
If you sign up to Find an Advocate (outside the directory), we will share your details with advocates who may be able to help you. If you no longer want to be contacted by advocates, you may contact us at info (at) aphadvocates.org to have your request removed from the list. We will not contact you except for that stated purpose.
If you provide a testimonial to be included on one of our members’ listings, we may use your email address to confirm you sent the testimonial. We will not contact you except for that stated purpose. Your email address will not be published publicly.
How We Protect Your Information
Your information is not stored on any publicly accessible servers and therefore cannot be accessed by anyone who would use it for reasons other than your intent to find an advocate.
Who Has Access to the Information?
In addition to the use of your contact information described above, your information will be shared in the following ways:
- as required by law, in a matter of public safety or policy, or as needed in connection with the transfer of other business assets. In compliance with U.S. law, AdvoConnection does not share information with any unaffiliated third parties for marketing purposes.
- with other DiagKNOWsis businesses.

If our information practices change in a significant way, we will post and highlight the policy changes.
