Privacy Policy

This privacy statement applies to the Kennedy Krieger Institute (“KKI”) Military Family Interactive Network (“MFIN”) website. A more detailed Policy can be found at the KKI Main Website that applies to other KKI services.

Types of Information Collected: This website does not log IP addresses nor collect any personal identifiable information beyond what you provide in the contact us form fields. It does use cookies (small files stored on your computer) that allow us to monitor how people access our site and how long they stay on our site.

If you provide us personally identifiable information about your child, it will be kept confidential and, to the extent applicable, will be subject to the protections of HIPAA. Your decision to do so or not will have no effect on any other care you might seek from KKI in the future.

Security: Our server uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect personal medical and other personal information submitted via the forms on this site. SSL is an industry standard security protocol. Our policy is that all identifiable information is to be securely stored and accessible only by authorized staff. To the extent the information is subject to HIPAA, it will be protected and used or disclosed only as permitted by HIPAA.

We cannot, however, guarantee with absolute certainty that our web site or offline storage is completely safe. In the event of a “Breach” of your information as defined by HIPAA, you will be notified as required by HIPAA.

Links to Other Sites: This site may provide links to other sites. By providing a link, we are trying to provide general assistance and information, but we are not guaranteeing the accuracy of any information or the privacy or security on that site. We encourage you to read the privacy and terms of use statement of any site that you visit.

COPPA: We do not intend our site to be accessed or designed for use by children.

Changes: Changes to this privacy policy will be posted on this site. You may cease use of the site at that time; you agree that your use of the website after notice on the website that there are changes to the policy will constitute your consent to the new terms.
