PII may include: your name, email, mailing and/or home address, phone numbers, or other information that identifies you personally. The 18 PHI identifiers are: names, dates (except years), telephone numbers, geographic data, fax numbers, social security numbers, email addresses, medical record numbers, account numbers, health plan beneficiary numbers, certificate/license numbers, vehicle identifiers and serial numbers including license plates, web URLs, device identifiers and serial numbers, internet protocol addresses, full face photos and comparable images, biometric identifiers (i.e. retinal scan, fingerprints), and any unique identifying number or code. We do not require you to register or provide personal information to visit our website. We ask that you do not submit any PHI via the FullBloom® Website.

The PII you provide on the FullBloom® website will be used only for its intended purpose. We will protect your information consistent with the principles of the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. § 552a (the “Privacy Act”), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”), and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”).

PII and PHI. Generally, FullBloom® does not collect PII and PHI when you visit our website unless you choose to provide such information to us. We ask that you do not submit any PHI via the FullBloom® Website. Submitting PII through our website is voluntary and you do so at your own discretion. By doing so, you are giving FullBloom® your permission to use the PII for the stated purpose. However, not providing certain PII may result in FullBloom’s inability to provide you with the service you desire.

If you choose to provide us with PII through our website, through such methods as completing a web form or sending us an email, FullBloom® will use that information to help to provide you with the information or service that you have requested or to respond to your message. The information we may receive from you varies based on what you do when visiting our sites.

We will only send you general information via email or newsletter. You should be reminded that email may not necessarily be secure against interception. Therefore, we suggest that you do not send sensitive personal data (such as your Social Security number) to us via email. If your intended email communication is very sensitive, or includes information such as your bank account, credit card, or Social Security number, you should instead send it by U.S. mail. Another alternative may be submission of data through a secure web page, if available.

AUTOMATICALLY COLLECTED INFORMATION. We collect and temporarily store certain information about your visit for use in site management and security purposes only. We collect and analyze this information because it helps us to better design our website to suit your needs. We may also automatically collect information about the web content you view in the event of a known security or virus threat. We may share the above information with our employees or representatives with a “need-to-know” in the performance of their official duties, or other named representatives as needed to quickly process your request or transaction.

DISCLOSURE TO THIRD PARTIES. FullBloom® does not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your personal information to outside third parties, except as outlined in this Privacy Policy.

FullBloom® may disclose your personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with applicable law, enforce our Website’s policies, or protect ours or other’s rights, property, or safety.
FullBloom® uses third parties (including contractors and service providers) to help with certain aspects of its operations, which may require disclosure of your Personal Information to them. For example, FullBloom® may use a third party to communicate with you (via telephone, email, or letter) about our services, to send information to you, to host the Website and related databases, and to perform other work that we may choose to outsource. FullBloom® requires these third parties to use your Personal Information only as necessary to perform the services they are asked to perform, and these third parties must agree to keep this information confidential.

Non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES AND APPLICATIONS. FullBloom® uses social media websites and other kinds of third-party websites. Social media websites are used to publicize FullBloom® events and engage with members of the public. FullBloom® also uses web measurement and customization technologies to measure the number of visitors to our websites and their various sections and to help make our websites more useful to visitors. In such cases, the third-party application may request an email address, username, password, and geographic location (e.g., State, region, or ZIP code) for account registration purposes. FullBloom® uses third-party websites to solicit and collect PII from individuals for the purposes clearly stated when the PII is collected, specifically for enrollment, recruiting or lead capture. Any PII passively collected (i.e., not solicited) by the third-party website will not be transmitted or stored by FullBloom®; no PII will be disclosed, sold or transferred to any other entity outside FullBloom®, unless required for law enforcement purposes or by statute.

INFORMATION COLLECTED FOR TRACKING AND CUSTOMIZATION (COOKIES). A cookie is a small file that a website transfers to your computer to allow it to remember specific information about your session while you are connected. Your computer will only share the information in the cookie with the website that provided it, and no other website can request it. There are two types of cookies:

Session: Session cookies last only so long as your web browser is open. Once you close your browser, the cookie is deleted. Websites may use session cookies for technical purposes such as to enable better navigation through the site, or to allow you to customize your preferences for interacting with the site.

 Persistent: Persistent cookies are saved on a user’s hard drive in order to determine which users are new to the site or are returning, and for repeat visitors.
If you do not wish to have session or persistent cookies stored on your machine, you can turn cookies off in your browser. You will still have access to all information and resources at FullBloom® websites. However, turning off cookies may affect the functioning of some FullBloom® websites. Be aware that disabling cookies in your browser will affect cookie usage at all other websites you visit as well.

SECURITY. FullBloom® takes the security of all PII very seriously. We take precautions to maintain the security, confidentiality, and integrity of the information we collect. We also employ various security technologies to protect the information stored on our systems. We routinely test our security measures to ensure that they remain operational and effective.

We take the following steps to secure the information we collect:

  • Employ internal access controls to ensure that only personnel who have access to your information are those with a need to do so to perform their official duties.
  • Train appropriate personnel on our privacy and security policies and compliance requirements.
  • Perform regular backups of the information we collect online to ensure against loss.
  • Use technical controls to secure the information we collect online including, but not limited to:
    • Secure Socket Layer (SSL)
    • Encryption
    • Firewalls
    • Password protections
  • Periodically test our security procedures to ensure personnel and technical compliance.
  • Employ external access safeguards to identify and prevent unauthorized access by outsiders that attempt to “hack” into, or cause harm to, the information contained in our systems.

VISITING OUR WEBSITES. Our website may contain links to governmental agencies, private organizations, and some commercial entities. These websites are not within our control and may not follow the same privacy, security, or accessibility polices. Once you link to another site, you are subject to the policies of that site.

INTERACTION WITH CHILDREN ONLINE

FullBloom® is committed to the protection of children’s online privacy. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) governs information gathered online from or about children under the age of 13. Verifiable consent from a child’s parent or guardian is required before collecting, using, or disclosing personal information from a child under age 13. If a FullBloom® website intends to collect information about children under 13 years old, COPPA-required information and instructions will be provided by the specific web page that collects information about the child. The web page will specify exactly what the information will be used for, who will see it, and how long it will be kept.

When you submit online application form to request admission for your child to a FullBloom® program, you will provide Personal Information, Educational and/or Health Information, and Family Information. If your child is referred to FullBloom® by a referring school district, his or her permanent files are maintained by the school district. FullBloom® retains files for students who are enrolled in non-public schools, charter schools or who are private-pay students. FullBloom® retains files for clients for therapy services. In all cases, FullBloom® follows all standard records retention regulations and all policies and procedures of FERPA and HIPAA.
