Privacy Policy


Last Updated: April 22, 2018

This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) describes how Face It TOGETHER, Inc. collects, uses, and shares information though our websites, mobile applications, and other services and products (collectively “Services”) that link to this Policy. This Policy applies together with our HIPAA Notice that covers use and disclosure of protected health information.

Face It TOGETHER is committed to transparency and protecting the privacy of your information. We operate with personal and health information upon four principles:

  1. We seek permission for the data we collect, understanding our relationship is voluntary. We have an obligation once our relationship is created to be a steward of your personal data.
  2. We only collect what we can protect. Your privacy is paramount. Our combined policies and practices respect, protect, secure, and govern your information with the knowledge that you may be sharing deeply sensitive information with us.
  3. We believe as a public non-profit organization that we must share appropriate elements of our work – findings, data, strategies, challenges, and impact to improve the greater good. We have designed data practices with openness and sharing in mind that begin with appropriate consent and privacy practices.
  4. We also believe that our mission requires a commitment to diversity and inclusion. Our Policy and data practices will be governed through transparency and will include diverse voices and approaches to ensure the ethical and equal application of algorithms and services.
