Privacy Policy

Our Commitment to Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. You are not obligated to send or transfer any personal information to us, but in the event you voluntarily elect to do so at your own discretion, this policy explains how your personal information is used and the steps we take to ensure it is handled appropriately.

This Privacy Policy applies to the AskEllyn website and AI chatbot tool (collectively, “Services”). Engagement Purposes Only

Please be advised that the AskEllyn AI chatbot tool is designed for engagement and informational purposes only, as a resource to individuals affected by breast cancer. The Web Site includes facts, views, opinions and recommendations deemed of interest to the community concerned about breast cancer. The tool provides supportive conversation related to the content of the book “FlatPlease,” and while it may offer information that some users find beneficial or comforting, these views, opinions and recommendations are not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. You should always seek the assistance of a medical or other healthcare professional for medical and other health matters.

Information Collection

The only personal information that we collect is information that you provide to us as user generated input when you use our Services, such as when you fill out a form on our website. AskEllyn does not keep or maintain any directly provided input from users. AskEllyn reserves the right to anonymize and present alternate versions of input and output, which would include no personally identifiable information, for its product development and other business activities.

Security and Retention

We implement commercially reasonable technical, administrative, and organizational measures to protect Personal Information both online and offline from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, email sent to or from us may not be secure. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via the Service or email. In addition, we are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Service, or third-party websites.

We’ll retain your Personal Information for only as long as we need in order to provide our Service to you, or for other legitimate business purposes such as resolving disputes, safety and security reasons, or complying with our legal obligations. How long we retain Personal Information will depend on a number of factors, such as the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure, our purpose for processing the information, and any legal requirements.

Information Sharing

AskEllyn does not disclose personal information to any organization or person for any reason, except to the extent necessary for our cloud-based hosted service provider to perform their functions. AskEllyn does not retain any personal information that you send or transfer in the course of interacting with our chatbot.

Links to other websites

The Service may contain links to other websites not operated or controlled by AskEllyn, including social media services (“Third Party Sites”). The information that you share with Third Party Sites will be governed by the specific privacy policies and terms of service of the Third Party Sites and not by this Privacy Policy. By providing these links we do not imply that we endorse or have reviewed these sites. Please contact the Third Party Sites directly for information on their privacy practices and policies.
