Senior Link may pose surveys to evaluate what features are useful and how we may best suit groups that organize volunteers. This information is not shared with other organizations and is only used to improve our web app. Senior Link may also pose a survey for volunteers to ask seniors, for example the question “How have you been today?” and the volunteer may note down the seniors' response. The evaluation of the seniors’ well-being will not be shared with anyone. It will solely be used to understand how effective the program of reaching out to seniors has been. Finally, Senior Link may provide optional questionnaires for participants. The information collected from questionnaires will not be sold or shared in any way. It will only be used to evaluate the program. De-identified data may be used in aggregate form for research purposes without revealing any confidential information of participants. All information in Senior Link data remains confidential.
This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Senior Link does not own or control, nor does it apply to people that Senior Link does not employ or manage. Other companies have their own privacy policies, and these can be viewed at their own websites. Senior Link Services may contain links to other websites or services. Senior Link is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other web sites or services.
