The ACEs Aware website electronically gathers information about users’ visits to our website. Additional demographic data (e.g., race, ethnicity, occupation, location, and zip code) is collected and used in various ACEs Aware reports. We use this information to respond to user inquiries and to improve the website. The ACEs Aware site uses web analytics to gather user Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, to record the web browser being used (e.g., Google Chrome), and the name of your internet domain (e.g., Gmail, AOL). Web analytics records the date and time that users access our site and collects information on which files, pages, and links are visited. It also records the website address from which the ACEs Aware site was accessed.
The goal of the ACEs Aware site is to help people live healthier lives and reach their full potential. The user information we request may include some or all of the following: name, email address, address, and/or employment information. We may also request health care plan and provider data.
ACEs Aware uses the information users provide in order to respond to their inquiries. When users provide said information, this constitutes consent for ACEs Aware to collect and share the information with their healthcare providers. If users choose not to provide the information requested, they will be unable to use some site features and services. However, users will still be able to use most of the website.
Electronically collected personal information is exempt from requests made under the California Public Records Act.
ACEs Aware uses many approaches to protect user personal information from loss, theft, or unauthorized use.
