5. Easterseals Affiliate Members

Easterseals has a number of affiliate members throughout the United States who interact directly with the populations we serve by bringing Easterseals' mission and work directly into the community in which the affiliate member operates. While our affiliate member organizations are associated with and use Easterseals branding, they may have their own practices regarding how they collect, use, share, and retain information when you interact with them.

As described above, affiliate members share information with us, and we share information with our affiliate members. This information sharing occurs so that we can understand the impact of our and our affiliate members' programs and services, yield actionable insights, and drive future-forward decision making so that we can continue to further the Easterseals' mission of equity, inclusion, and access for individuals with disabilities.

Easterseals' website may contain links to other sites, including to our affiliate members, as well as links to non-affiliated third parties, such as social networks or business partners. These linked sites may have personal information collection, use, and disclosure practices that differ from Easterseals' practices. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of websites that you visit before sharing your personal information with them. Please also be aware that if you disclose personal information, PHI, or other sensitive information through public forums, at an event, or on online message boards, this information may be used by others. We take no responsibility for the content, security, or confidentiality of any information posted on or conveyed in these public spaces.

7. Security of Personal Information

Easterseals knows that information security is of the utmost important to our donors, affiliate members, website visitors, and individuals whose information we collect. We maintain reasonable technical, administrative, physical, and organizational safeguards in proportion to the sensitivity of information we collect that are designed to prevent unauthorized access, use, and disclosure of personal information.

However, no electronic data transmission or processing of personal information is completely secure, so we cannot guarantee the security of personal information. We encourage you to assist us with securing your personal information by using a strong password and not disclosing your login credentials, where applicable, to anyone. If we become aware of an incident that affects your personal information, we will investigate and comply with all reporting obligations.

8. Transmission of Health-Related Information

Easterseals understands the sensitivity of collecting and using health-related data. It is not Easterseals' intent to collect personally identifiable health-related information or PHI. If we do collect personally identifiable health-related information or PHI, it will not be used by or shared with entities other than Easterseals or our affiliate members, unless the information is de-identified. Any transfer of personally identifiable health-related data between Easterseals organizations will take place in a secure environment with access allowed only to certain qualified employees of Easterseals. Easterseals will comply with all regulations set forward by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). To learn more about HIPAA, visit the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights.

9. Retention of Personal Information

We will retain your information only for as long as necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. This may mean that we will continue to retain certain information even after we stop providing our services directly or indirectly to you, after you delete your user profile, or cease interacting with us, as required by law or for our legitimate business purposes. We may also retain de-identified, aggregated, or anonymous information that does not identify a particular individual. In all cases where we retain data, we do so in accordance with limitation periods and record retention obligations that are imposed by applicable law.

  • Health Oversight Activities. Easterseals may disclose your health information to a health oversight agency for activities including audits, civil, administrative or criminal investigations, inspections, licensure or disciplinary action. Easterseals, however, may not disclose your health information if you are the subject of an investigation and your health information is not directly related to your receipt of health care or public benefits.

  • Worker’s Compensation. Easterseals may release your health information for worker’s compensation or similar programs providing benefits for work related injuries or illnesses.


Other than as stated above, Easterseals will not disclose your health information other than with your written authorization. If you or your representative authorizes Easterseals to use or disclose your health information, you may revoke that authorization in writing at any time. If you revoke your permission, Easterseals will no longer use or disclose health information about you for the reasons covered by your written authorization. You understand that Easterseals is unable to take back any disclosures that have already been made with your authorization, and that Easterseals is required by law to retain our records of the services provided to you.


You have the following rights regarding your health information that Easterseals maintains:

  • Right to Request Restrictions. You have the right to request a restriction or limitation on the health information Easterseals uses or discloses about you for treatment, payment or health care operations, and to request a limit on the health information Easterseals discloses about you to someone who is involved in your care or payment, such as a family member or friend. Easterseals is not required to agree to your request. If Easterseals does agree, however, the agency will comply with your request unless the information is needed to provide you with emergency or other vital treatment. To request restrictions, you must tell Easterseals (1) what information you want to limit; (2) whether you want to limit our use, disclosure, or both; and (3) to whom you want the limits to apply, for example, disclosure to your spouse. To request restrictions, you must submit your request in writing to our Privacy Officer at the address shown below.
  • Right to Receive Confidential Communications. You have the right to request, in writing, that Easterseals communicate with you in a certain way. For example, you may ask that Easterseals only conduct communications pertaining to your health information with you privately with no other family members present. Easterseals will not require that you provide any reasons for your request and will attempt to honor your reasonable requests for confidential communications.
  • Right to Inspect and Obtain a Copy your Health Information. You have the right to inspect and receive a copy of health information about you. Usually, this includes medical and billing records, but does not include psychotherapy notes or information compiled in reasonable anticipation of, or for use in a civil, criminal or administrative action or proceeding. To inspect and copy health information, you must submit your request in writing. If you request a copy of your health information, Easterseals may charge a reasonable fee for copying and assembling costs associated with your request.
  • Right to Amend Health Care Information. If you or your representative believes that your health information records are incorrect or incomplete, you may request that Easterseals amend the records. That request may be made as long as the information is maintained by Easterseals. A request for an amendment of records must be made in writing. Easterseals may deny the request if it is not in writing or does not include a reason for the amendment. The request also may be denied if your health information records were not created by Easterseals, if the records you are requesting are not part of Easterseal’s records, if the health information you wish to amend is not part of the health information you or your representative are permitted to inspect and copy, or if, in the opinion of Easterseals, the records containing your health information are accurate and complete.
  • Right to an Accounting. You or your representative have the right to request an accounting of disclosures of your health information made by Easterseals. This is a list of the disclosures Easterseals made of health information about you but does not include disclosures (a) to carry out treatment, payment or health care operations; (b) made to you; (c) to other person’s involved in your care; (d) for national security or intelligence purposes; or (e) law enforcement officials as provided by law. The request for an accounting must be made in writing. The request should specify the time period for the accounting and must be after April 14, 2003. Accounting requests may not be made for periods of time in excess of six years. Easterseals would provide the first accounting you request during any 12-month period without charge. Subsequent accounting requests may be subject to a reasonable cost-based fee. Easterseals will notify you of the costs involved before completing your request, so that you will have the chance to withdraw or modify your request before any costs are incurred.
  • Right to a Paper Copy of this Notice. No later than the date of the first service delivery on or after April 14, 2003, a copy of this notice shall be provided to you. You or your representative have a right to a separate paper copy of this Notice at any time even if you or your representative have received this Notice previously. The Easterseals consumer/patient or a representative may also obtain a copy of the current version of Easterseal’s Notice of Privacy Practices at its website:


Easterseals is required by law to maintain the privacy of your health information and to provide to you and your representative this Notice of its duties and privacy practices.

Easterseals reserves the right to change the terms of its Notice and to make the new Notice provisions effective for all health information that it maintains. If Easterseals changes its Notice, Easterseals will post a revised copy of the current notice at each of the Easterseals facilities reflecting its effective date.
