We take the safety of your personal data seriously.
In summary — When you create an account on the ACCELERATION platform, you will be asked for some personal and contact information. This will let our staff review your profile to determine your eligibility for the program. You will also be asked to create a username and password which will let you log in to your account on the ACCELERATION platform.
You will then complete a series of health-related questionnaires. If you are eligible and agree to participate in the program, you will also be asked to track your health goals progress on the ACCELERATION platform.
Access to your health information will be limited to the ACCELERATION program staff. They will only be able to view your information through verified and secure access. You will also be assigned a unique study ID number. This means that when your information is extracted from the system and used in our research database, your name and any personal identifying information will be anonymized. Your name and personal contact details will never be made public and they will never be used to identify you in any program report.
