We will not sell, trade or rent your personal information to any third party without your permission.

The patient registry also allows us to build a database of juvenile myositis patients. This information will be used as part of a demographic survey to determine if there are clusters of children affected by JM in the same geographic area. It will also allow us to determine the average age of disease onset, the most common initial symptoms as well as the percentage of children with JM by gender. The information you provide will be used exclusively for research, and will not be shared with any other organization or business not connected with this research.
