The Illinois Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics (ICAAP) takes the issue of privacy very seriously. This policy is intended to help you understand how ICAAP collects, uses and safeguards the information collected on our Web site. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the use or disclosure of information that is collected or obtained through means other than this Web site.

Collection of Information: Visitors may generally browse public portions of the ICAAP Web site anonymously without providing any personal information. However, personal information will be requested in connection with purchasing products or services, registering for events, requesting additional information, signing up for newsletters or listservs, or submitting questions through this site. In general, a visitor will know when personal information is being collected because he or she will have to fill out a form. ICAAP does not knowingly collect or use any personal information from users under 13 years of age. ICAAP will endeavor to correct, update or remove collected personal data if contacted (info@illinoisaap.com).

ICAAP Use of Information: Any information collected on the Web site will be used by ICAAP only for the purpose stated at the time of collection. Only those who ask to be added to ICAAP e-mail lists or who ask for information from ICAAP will receive e-mail communications from ICAAP. ICAAP members may be automatically added to ICAAP e-mail lists or certain other private lists if ICAAP has an e-mail address for the member. E-mail addresses may be removed from ICAAP e-mail lists at any time by following the applicable opt-out procedure specified in the list welcome message or by contacting info@illinoisaap.com and specifying the name of the list. ICAAP may share statistical or aggregated, non-personal information about our visitors with affiliates, business partners and other third parties. This data is used for administrative purposes only.

Sharing of Information: ICAAP may provide personal information to third party agents that have been hired to help provide a requested good or service. For example, in connection with a product order, ICAAP would need to provide the collected credit card number to a payment authorization service and the corresponding address to a shipping company to deliver the package. Unless directed otherwise at the time of collection, ICAAP may also share collected personal information with third parties who may have information or services that ICAAP believes could be helpful to members or visitors. ICAAP may also share personally identifiable information obtained from an ICAAP member for the purpose of facilitating the member’s access to programs and activities consistent with ICAAP’s goal of improving quality in the delivery of pediatric health care services. ICAAP members and others may change their preferences for the sharing of information by contacting the ICAAP Webmaster (info@illinosaap.com).

Cookies and Tracking Information: ICAAP may use “cookie” technology to obtain non-personal information from its on-line visitors. ICAAP servers may also collect the IP addresses and domain names of visitors for site administration purposes. ICAAP does not extract personal information in these processes, nor does ICAAP provide this information to third parties. ICAAP does not contact online visitors based on information in the ICAAP cookie file.

ICAAP has taken commercially reasonable steps to protect information received from online visitors against unauthorized access and use. All information is protected by ICAAP security measures, which are periodically reviewed.

ICAAP reserves the right to disclose without notice to the user any information in its possession if required to do so by law, to protect or defend ICAAP’s rights or property, or to respond to an emergency.
