CAREGIVER FEED PRIVACY POLICY

Privacy Policy

We want you to understand how and why Caregiver Feed, LLC (“Caregiver feed”, “we” or “us”) collects, uses, and shares information about you when you use our sites, mobile apps, widgets, and other online products and services (collectively, the “Services”) or when you otherwise interact with us or receive a communication from us. This Privacy Policy applies to all of our Services.

What We Collect (and How it is Used and Shared)

 


Information You Provide to Us
We collect information you provide to us directly when you use the Services. This includes:

 
 


Account information

 


If you create a Caregiver account, we may require you to provide a username and password. Your username is public, and it does not have to be related to your real name. You may also provide other account information, like an email address, bio, or profile picture. We also store your user account preferences and settings.

 
 


Content you submit

 


We collect the content you submit to the Services. This includes your posts and comments including saved drafts, videos, your messages with other users (e.g., private messages, chats, and modmail), and your reports and other communications with moderators and with us. Your content may include text, links, images, gifs, and videos.

 
 


Actions you take

 


We collect information about the actions you take when using the Services. This includes your interactions with content, like voting, saving, hiding, and reporting. It also includes your interactions with other users, such as following, friending, and blocking. We collect your interactions with communities, like your subscriptions or moderator status.

 
 


Transactional information

 


If you purchase products or services from us, we will collect certain information from you, including your name, address, email address, and information about the product or service you are purchasing. Caregiver Feed uses industry-standard payment processor services (for example, Stripe) to handle payment information.

 
 


Other information

 


You may choose to provide other information directly to us. For example, we may collect information when you fill out a form, participate in sponsored activities or promotions, apply for a job, request customer support, or otherwise communicate with us.

 
   

 


Information We Collect Automatically
When you access or use our Services, we may also automatically collect information about you. This includes:

 
 


Log and usage data

 


We may log information when you access and use the Services. This may include your IP address, user-agent string, browser type, operating system, referral URLs, device information (e.g., device IDs), device settings, pages visited, links clicked, the requested URL, and search terms.

 
 


Information collected from cookies and similar technologies

 


We may receive information from cookies, which are pieces of data your browser stores and sends back to us when making requests, and similar technologies. We use this information to improve your experience, understand user activity, personalize content and advertisements, and improve the quality of our Services. For example, we store and retrieve information about your preferred language and other settings. See our Cookie Notice for more information about how Caregiver Feed uses cookies. For more information on how you can disable cookies, please see “Your Choices” below.

 
 



Location information

 


We may receive and process information about your location. For example, with your consent, we may collect information about the specific location of your mobile device (for example, by using GPS or Bluetooth). We may also receive location information from you when you choose to share such information on our Services, including by associating your content with a location, or we may derive your approximate location from other information about you, including your IP address.

 
   

 


Information Collected from Other Sources
We may receive information about you from other sources, including from other users and third parties, and combine that information with the other information we have about you. For example, we may receive demographic or interest information about you from third parties, including advertisers (such as the fact that an advertiser is interested in showing you an ad), and combine it with our own data using a common account identifier such as a hash of an email address or a mobile-device ID.

 
 


Linked services

 


If you authorize or link a third-party service (e.g., an unofficial mobile app client) to access your Caregiver Feed account, Caregiver Feed receives information about your use of that service when it uses that authorization. Linking services may also cause the other service to send us information about your account with that service. For example, if you sign into Caregiver Feed with a third-party identity provider, that provider may share an email address with us.

 
 


Information collected from integrations

 


We also may receive information about you, including log and usage data and cookie information, from third-party sites that integrate our Services, including our embeds and advertising technology.

 
   

 


Information Collected by Third Parties

 
 


Embedded content

 


Caregiver Feed displays some linked content in-line on the Caregiver Feed services via “embeds.” For example, Caregiver Feed posts that link to YouTube or Twitter may load the linked video or tweet within Caregiver Feed directly from those services to your device so you don’t have to leave Caregiver Feed to see it. In general, Caregiver Feed does not control how third-party services collect data when they serve you their content directly via these embeds. As a result, embedded content is not covered by this privacy policy but by the policies of the service from which the content is embedded.

 
 


Programmatic ads

 


We partner with third-party programmatic ad exchanges to show advertisements relevant to your interests. In providing those ads, those third parties collect information, including log and usage data and information from cookies as described above. These third parties do not receive any information from your Caregiver Feed account.

 
 


Audience measurement

 


We partner with audience measurement companies to learn demographic information about the population that uses Caregiver Feed. To provide this demographic information, these companies collect cookie information to recognize your device.

 
   

 


Information Collected from Advertisers and Potential Advertisers
If you use Caregiver Feed Ads (Caregiver Feed’s self-serve ads platform) we collect some additional information. To sign up for Caregiver Feed Ads, you must provide your name, email address, and information about your company. If you purchase advertising services, you will need to provide transactional information as described above, and we may also require additional documentation to verify your identity. When using Caregiver Feed Ads, we may record a session replay of your visit for customer service, troubleshooting, and usability research purposes.

 
   

We use information about you to:

  • Provide, maintain, and improve the Services.
  • Research and develop new services.
  • Help protect the safety of Caregiver Feed and our users, which includes blocking suspected spammers, addressing abuse, and enforcing the Caregiver Feed User Agreement and our other policies.
  • Send you technical notices, updates, security alerts, invoices, and other support and administrative messages.
  • Provide customer service.
  • Communicate with you about products, services, offers, promotions, and events, and provide other news and information we think will be of interest to you).
  • Monitor and analyze trends, usage, and activities in connection with our Services.
  • Measure the effectiveness of ads shown on our Services; and
  • Personalize the Services, and provide and optimize advertisements, content, and features that match user profiles or interests.

Much of the information on the Services is public and accessible to everyone, even without an account. By using the Services, you are directing us to share this information publicly and freely.

When you submit content to a public part of the Services, any visitors to and users of our Services will be able to see that content, the username associated with the content, and the date and time you originally submitted the content. Caregiver Feed allows other sites to embed public Caregiver Feed content via our embed tools. Caregiver Feed also allows third parties to access public Caregiver Feed content via technologies. Although some parts of the Services may be private or quarantined, they may become public (e.g., at the moderator’s option in the case of private communities) and you should take that into consideration before posting to the Services.

We offer social sharing features that let you share content or actions you take on our Services with other media. Your use of these features enables the sharing of certain information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings you establish with the third party that provides the social sharing feature. For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing in connection with social sharing features, please visit the privacy policies of the third parties that provide these social sharing features (e.g.FacebookTwitter).

Caregiver Feed only shares nonpublic information about you in the following ways. We do not sell this information.

  • With your consent. We may share information about you with your consent or at your direction.
  • With linked services. If you link your Caregiver Feed account with a third-party service, Caregiver Feed will share the information you authorize with that third-party service. You can control this sharing as described in “Your Choices” below.
  • With our service providers. We may share information with vendors, consultants, and other service providers who need access to such information to carry out work for us. Their use of personal data will be subject to appropriate confidentiality and security measures. A few examples: (i) payment processors who process transactions on our behalf, (ii) cloud providers who host our data and our services, (iii) third-party ads measurement providers who help us and advertisers measure the performance of ads shown on our Services.
  • To comply with the law. We may share information in response to a request for information if we believe disclosure is in accordance with, or required by, any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request, including, but not limited to, meeting national security or law enforcement requirements.
  • In an emergency. We may share information if we believe it is necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily harm to a person.
  • To enforce our policies and rights. We may share information if we believe your actions are inconsistent with our User Agreement, rules, or other Caregiver Feed policies, or to protect the rights, property, and safety of ourselves and others.
  • With our affiliates. We may share information between and among Caregiver Feed, and any of our parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, and other companies under common control and ownership.
  • Aggregated or de-identified information. We may share information about you that has been aggregated or anonymized such that it cannot reasonably be used to identify you. For example, we may show the total number of times a post has been upvoted without identifying who the visitors were, or we may tell an advertiser how many people saw their ad.

How We Protect Your Information

We take measures to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

You can help maintain the security of your account by configuring two-factor authentication.

We store the information we collect for as long as it is necessary for the purpose(s) for which we originally collected it. We may retain certain information for legitimate business purposes or as required by law.

Your Choices

You have choices about how to protect and limit the collection, use, and sharing of information about you when you use the Services. Some of these choices are available to everyone who uses Caregiver Feed, while others only apply if you have a Caregiver Feed account.

 


Accessing and Changing Your Information

 


You can access and change certain information through the Services.

 
 


Deleting Your Account

 


You may delete your account information at any time When you delete your account, your profile is no longer visible to other users and disassociated from content you posted under that account. Please note, however, that the posts, comments, and messages you submitted prior to deleting your account will still be visible to others unless you first delete the specific content. We may also retain certain information about you as required by law or for legitimate business purposes after you delete your account.

 
 


Controlling the Use of Cookies

 


Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject first- and third-party cookies. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of our Services.

 
 


Controlling Advertising and Analytics

 


Some analytics providers we partner with may provide specific opt-out mechanisms and we may provide, as needed and as available, additional tools and third-party services that allow you to better understand cookies and how you can opt out. For example, you may manage the use and collection of certain information by Google Analytics via the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.



 
 


Do Not Track

 


Most modern web browsers give you the option to send a Do Not Track signal to the sites you visit, indicating that you do not wish to be tracked. However, there is no accepted standard for how a site should respond to this signal, and we do not take any action in response to this signal. Instead, in addition to publicly available third-party tools, we offer you the choices described in this policy to manage the collection and use of information about you.

 
 


Controlling Promotional Communications

 


You may opt out of receiving some or all categories of promotional communications from us by following the instructions in those communications or by updating your email options in your account preferences. If you opt out of promotional communications, we may still send you non-promotional communications, such as information about your account or your use of the Services.

 
 


Controlling Mobile Notifications

 


With your consent, we may send promotional and non-promotional push notifications or alerts to your mobile device. You can deactivate these messages at any time by changing the notification settings on your mobile device.

 
   

International Data Transfers

We are based in the United States and we process and store information on servers located in the United States. We may store information on servers and equipment in other countries depending on a variety of factors, including the locations of our users and service providers. By accessing or using the Services or otherwise providing information to us, you consent to the processing, transfer, and storage of information in and to the U.S. and other countries, where you may not have the same rights as you do under local law.

We also participate in other affiliate programs. Please note, we do not accept gifts, money, samples or any other incentives from companies in exchange for any special consideration when we prepare our product reviews, gift ideas, or for any reason mention a product.
