Information We Collect

Personal Information

You may use our website without providing any personal information. If you choose to request additional information about our healthcare services using a webform on our website, we may ask for information about you that is personally identifiable to you, such as your contact information (e.g., name, city/town, state, zip code, email address, or telephone number) and other non-public information that is associated with this information. We may ask for information regarding caregiver availability, a consumer’s possible care needs, as well as eligibility of the consumer for Medicaid, Medicare or other publicly funded healthcare programs. This personal information is provided voluntarily by you, the user, to communicate with us and to obtain information about the services we offer. 

If you submit to us any personal information relating to another person, you represent that you have the authority to do so and permit us to use the information in accordance with this Website Privacy Policy.

Choosing to provide personal information to the website, whether we request it or not, constitutes consent to the collection and sharing of the information for the purposes described in this Website Privacy Policy. By submitting personal information, you grant us the right to transmit, monitor, retrieve, store and use the personal information in connection with the operation of the website.

We use this information to analyze trends, administer the website, troubleshoot any user problems, and to enhance and update the website.

How We Use and Share your Information

To Facilitate or Provide Services and Information

We collect information from you to facilitate or provide services that you request from us; provide information that you request from us; contact you about your services requests; and provide information about use of our website or availability of our services.

Support Services

We may disclose your information to our agents, affiliates, and contractors to allow them to perform certain functions relating to the administration and maintenance of this website or other activities related to your use of the website and services offered through the website. For example, we may contract with service providers to provide certain services, such as hosting and maintenance, customer relationship management and data storage and management. We provide our service providers with only the information necessary for them to perform these services on our behalf. Each service provider must agree to use reasonable security procedures and practices, appropriate to the nature of the information involved, to protect your information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. We implement reasonable contractual and technical protections to limit their use of that information to providing the support services.

Legal Proceedings

We will share personal information with third party companies, organizations or individuals outside of Seniorlink if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:

  • Meet any applicable law, regulation, subpoena, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
  • Enforce applicable Terms of Use, including investigation of potential violations.
  • Detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
  • Protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Seniorlink, the site, our users, customers or the public as required or permitted by law.


Transfer in the Event of Sale or Change of Control

If the ownership of all or substantially all of our business changes or we otherwise transfer assets relating to our business or the website to a third party, such as by merger, acquisition, bankruptcy proceeding or otherwise, we may transfer or sell your personal information to the new owner. In such a case, unless permitted otherwise by applicable law, your information would remain subject to the promises made in the applicable Website Privacy Policy.

Security

We use industry standard physical, technical and administrative security measures and safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of your personal information. However, since the Internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot guarantee, ensure, or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. There is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.  Please note that while communications and information you send to us using webforms on our website are encrypted, e-mails and other communications you send to us outside of the website are not encrypted. Thus, we strongly advise you not to communicate any confidential information through unencrypted email.

When you enter your personal information through the website, the personal information is transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States, and could be transferred to, stored and processed on servers or databases located outside your state, province, or country.
