This privacy policy explains how CareCalendar.org collects and uses personal information that is entered on the site.

PERSONAL INFORMATION

We understand the need for keeping personal information private. We also understand the need to make some personal information available to certain individuals, or groups of individuals, when arranging care assistance for a loved one.

In order to balance these needs effectively, we have taken several measures to protect the information that is entrusted to us. The protection we offer is only as effective as it is allowed to be. We strongly encourage everyone that uses CareCalendar to respect the privacy of others and only share the personal information, and the means to access that information, with those that need to know it and can be trusted.
