Crohn’s & Colitis Advocate Program
When you register for the Crohn's & Colitis Patient Advocate Program, we will ask you to provide certain personal information that identifies you (such as your name, mailing address, email address, phone number, date of birth, gender, and health information).
Personal information collected when you register for the Program is retained on servers in the U.S. Where AbbVie is responsible for storing the information you provide to us, then AbbVie will handle such information in accordance with AbbVie’s policies and applicable law. Please note that no method of transmitting or storing electronic data is ever completely secure, and we cannot guarantee that such information will never be accessed, used, or released in a manner that is inconsistent with this policy.
If you wish to edit your information, please contact your Patient Advocate who can then access and edit your requested information on your patient registration data and/or your patient profile data.
We may use and consolidate the personal information that we collect about you through the CrohnsAndColitis website to respond to your questions and to provide you with efficient customer service.
Any health information (such as diagnosis and types of treating physicians) that you provide to us will be used by your Patient Advocate to better understand what educational resources are needed.
If you consented to our sending you communications regarding Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis awareness, then we may send you such information by post, email, SMS or telephone.
In general, AbbVie will only store your personal information and health information for as long as it is needed to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, subject to applicable data retention periods imposed upon AbbVie by applicable law.
We will not share information that we collect through the Program with any third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes.
If you want to opt out of receiving Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis awareness materials from us, you can use the “opt-out” procedure listed at the bottom of any such disease awareness message that we send to you.
