We strive to maintain technical and physical safeguards which are designed to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of the personally identifiable health information that you provide to us on our website and related information systems.  However, no system is impenetrable and we cannot guarantee the confidentiality and integrity of such personally identifiable health information. Any transmission of any personal information on our website is at your own risk.

The date the privacy policy was last revised is identified at the top of the page. You are responsible for periodically visiting our website and this privacy policy to check for any changes.

Children Under the Age of 13

This website is not intended for children under 13 years of age. No one under age 13 may provide any information to Front Row.

ATTENTION ALL PERSONS UNDER AGE 13

IF YOU ARE UNDER 13, DO NOT USE THIS WEBSITE OR PROVIDE ANY INFORMATION ABOUT YOURSELF TO US, INCLUDING YOUR NAME, ADDRESS, TELEPHONE NUMBER, OR E-MAIL ADDRESS, OVER THE INTERNET, BY E-MAIL, OR BY ANY OTHER MEANS.

Although children under 13 years of age are not permitted to use this website, Front Row may collect personally identifiable information from parents or legal guardians about children who are being referred as potential Front Row recipients. Front Row does not collect any personally identifying information about children from our website unless a parent or legal guardian chooses to provide us with such information by completing an application on behalf of their child.

Contact Person

BEFORE A PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN MAY SUBMIT AN APPLICATION ON BEHALF OF YOUR CHILD, you must provide your consent to Front Row collecting, using, and disclosing the personal information about your child. Before you may submit an application, we will prompt you to consent to the collection and use of the information.

Disclosure Notices

If a parent or legal guardian wants to nominate their child as a potential Front Row recipient, the parent or legal guardian must submit an application on behalf of their child through our website. The application requires the parent or legal guardian to submit personal information about themselves and about their child. The parent or legal guardian will provide information about his or her name, mailing address, e-mail address, and telephone number. The information we collect about a potential child recipient includes the child’s name, birth date, diagnosis, past and present treatment regimen, facilities where treatment occurred or is occurring, identification of treating physician and treating physician contact information, prognosis or projected condition, and information concerning the child’s individual experiences in dealing with the health condition (the “Recipient Information”).

The Recipient Information is used by Front Row staff to evaluate whether a child is eligible for a Front Row experience, including deciding whether the child has a health condition that Front Row determines to be progressive, degenerative, or malignant and that has placed the child’s life in jeopardy.

Front Row may also contact the child’s treating physician and discuss the child’s diagnosis and projected condition for purposes of evaluating a potential recipient’s eligibility. Typically, a physician provides Front Row with information about the child’s condition that verifies the Recipient Information which Front Row has received. However, it is possible that certain Recipient Information may be disclosed to the child’s physician. Even in those cases in which Front Row discloses certain Recipient Information to a child’s physician, Front Row does not disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to confirm the child faces a life-threatening illness. This is necessary so Front Row can fulfill its mission of providing Front Row experiences only to individuals facing critical health illnesses.

Although Front Row is not a “covered entity” that must comply with the privacy and security rules and regulations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, as amended (“HIPAA”), we are committed to protecting the information we receive from potential recipients about their past, present, or future health conditions through our compliance with this policy. We strive to maintain technical and physical safeguards which are designed to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of your child’s personally identifiable health information that you provide to us on our website and related information systems.  However, no system is impenetrable and we cannot guarantee the confidentiality and integrity of your child’s personally identifiable health information. Any transmission of your child’s personal information on our website is at your own risk.

Please note, however, that this may affect Front Row’s ability to evaluate and confirm whether a child is eligible to receive a Front Row Experience.
