PRIVACY POLICY


This privacy policy describes how CareZapp collects and uses the personal information you provide on our website, applications (App), products, or services.

 

We at CareZapp Limited (“CareZapp”, “we”, “us”, “our”) know that our users (“you”, “your”) care about how your personal information is used and shared, and we take your privacy seriously.

This privacy policy describes how CareZapp collects and uses the personal information you provide on our website, applications (App), products, or services.

CareZapp is intended to facilitate communication and the sharing of care notifications and alerts and other information by and among: family members, friends, community based supports and care professionals of a person requiring care, the Care Recipient – the Service

Such family members, friends, community based supports and care professionals who have registered with the CareZapp service are referred to herein as “Network Members”. Network Members can create various Care Groups (such as; Family, Friends, Neighbours, Home Care Provider) centred around an individual Care Recipient.

Care Groups that are centred around the same Care Recipient can connect together to form a Network of Care, for and on behalf of that Care Recipient. Information that is shared with a Care Group is private and secure to the Network Members of that Care Group.

In addition, certain Network Members may be authorised to access, update and share certain personal data, health-related data and other sensitive information related to and/or on behalf of a Care Recipient within and between Care Groups; such Network Members are referred to herein as “Authorised People”, such as the Primary Caregiver and Care Group Coordinator.

Our privacy policy is designed to maximise your ability to protect personal private data, while at the same time giving you the opportunity to support and share the care for a Care Recipient at home and in the community, including remotely monitor a home and accessing personal health, wellness and safety information.

Our mission in implementing this privacy policy is to, first, protect your personal information, and second, use it only to provide you with the highest quality care support services, for your own benefit or that of the Care Recipient.
