If you are invited to participate in the group then, then information you provide in will be moved to Foundry’s data collection platform called Toolbox and be shared with your care provider and care team to support the types of services that you receive. This will be true for the group you are signing up to be a part of and any future services you might want to receive from us. Your information may also be used to evaluate and improve Foundry Services or be used for research projects. To protect your privacy, any information that identifies you, such as your name and personal health number, will be removed before sharing any results.

Your privacy will be respected. Foundry will not release any identifying information to anybody else, unless you allow us to, or we are required to do so by law.
