Questions & Answers:
Q: Why do I need to complete an
A: We ask all persons who would
like to join our MSN online support group for an application because we would like to have information about you for our records.
We also can verify information that members supply to us so we are a little more guarenteed that you are who you say
you are. The internet as you may know is a very unsecure place to be and our members like to feel safe that no intruders,
spammers, hackers and /or other person(s) that would cause harm to them or the group as a whole so they will not get in to
read about them, take their personal information they share with the group. As well as sageguarding that attorneys, workmans
comp, SSI workers, social workers who maybe trying to find faults or fraudulent information about you or so no one can be spied
on without their knowledge. Members just want to feel safe, I believe you would as well. Our group is private in
meaning no one can see anything inside our group unless they are a member, which means every person must complete the application,
which means we know about every person who joins the group and in fact they have RSD/CRPS or another Chronic pain condition
or is a friend/family members of the person who has the conditions and is a member for support of them.
Q: Who views my application?
A: The Aware-RSD manager
of the group is the only person who views the application and no information is shared with anyone without your permission
and written consent accept for your mailing address if you state a birthday or anniversary in which one assistant manager
will send you greeting cards for those occasions and for no other use.
Q: What happens to my application
once it is sent to Aware-RSD?
A: Your application is placed in
a email folder for approx 24 hours and then information is transfered to a safe secure private group in which the manager/owner
only has access to it.
Q: Should I keep a copy of my application?
A: Yes, we recommend that everyone
keeps a copy of the application incase we ask for it again and that you know what information you supplied to us. We may also
ask for updated information from time to time.
Q: If for some reason I am no longer
a member or I am denied to become a member, what happens to my application?
A: We can destroy your application by
request but we do require written verfication of this and sent to us by e-mail to: Aware-RSD_Management_Team@hotmail.com . If no request is given we
file your application under " Non-Member" folder for either future membership or gathering of information for management purposes.
Q: Can my application be denied
if I don't supply all of my personal information?
A: Yes.. we may deny your application.
Again we need to make sure that you are who you say you are in the event of something happening to you or another member.
We may however make exceptions if you explain why you cannot supply that information.
Q: Why do you ask for my mailing
A: We require your mailing address
so we can again verify who you say you are as well as send you birthday cards, anniversary cards, holiday cards and or gifts
and /or RSD infiormation. If you would to be exempt from this please let us know asap by written notification in a seperate
e-mail or by snail mail.
Q: Why do you ask for my phone number's?
A: We ask for your home phone numbers,
cell phone numbers and emergency contact numbers because again so we can verify by phone of who you say you are and in the
event of an emergency we can contact you or your family as many times management has had to check on members due to suicide
threats, hospitalizations, surgeries, etc.
