Mobile Application Privacy Policy
 
EFFECTIVE: 1 MARCH 2023

VARIETY CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL (referred to as “Nicklaus Children’s Hospital”, “we,” “our,” “us,” or “Company”) recognizes that you care how information about you is collected and used. Nicklaus Children’s Hospital has created this Privacy Policy to inform you of our information collection, use and sharing practices.
 
Please be advised that the practices described in this Privacy Policy apply only to information gathered through mobile applications created by us for our customers (the “App”) and do not necessarily reflect our practices with respect to information gathered through other means. Use of the App is subject to our End User License Agreement (EULA) and to our personal information gathering and dissemination practices and policies as described below.
 
We Collect The Following Types of Information
 
Account Creation
 
We do not require that you create an account in order to utilize the App. Yet still, creating an account may be offered to personalize and enhance the user experience, but will always be optional. Whether you create an account or not, the App does use Unique Identifiers (as discussed below).

Additionally, the third party store that licensed the App to you (e.g., the Apple App Store or Google Play Store) may have collected personal information from you and may provide that information to us. We shall only utilize that information for the purposes of ensuring the proper licensing of the App.
 
App Usage
 
We may collect information regarding App usage such as geographic, specific feature usage, and search information. We utilize this information to analyze the performance of and improve the App to provide current and future users with a fulfilling experience.
 
Unique Identifiers
 
We use “Unique Identifiers” to enable your use of the App. Unique Identifiers are small files used by our App that are stored on your device when the App is first installed for the purposes of identifying your device for consistent usage across sessions in the App. Unique Identifiers are installation specific: if the App is uninstalled and reinstalled, the old Unique Identifier is deleted and a new Unique Identifier is installed. These Unique Identifiers do not contain any personally identifiable information or information that we could use to ascertain your identity, such as your name. We use Unique Identifiers to track the usage of the App and to enhance your use of the App.

If we are provided your personal information by you or the third party store that licensed the App to you, we may use your personal information to contact you. Using your personal information, we may also send you e-mail messages under the following circumstances, among others:
