Terms not defined in this Privacy Policy have the meanings ascribed them in our Terms of Service. By providing us any information or accessing any part of the Platform, individuals agree to the following terms and conditions as final and binding.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

This Policy may change from time to time.  We will post a notice on our platform if any material changes are made to this Policy, along with the effective date, in an easy-to-find area of the Platform. Note that your continued use of the Platform after any change means that you agree with, and consent to be bound by, the new policy. We reserve the right to modify the Privacy Policy at any time.

Cookies are text files that are sent by servers to web browsers and stored on your computer. They tell us which parts of the Platform you’ve visited so CareValidate can alert you to software compatibility issues and save your preferences for future visits to the Platform. Web beacons and pixel tags are images embedded in a webpage or e-mail for the purpose of measuring and analyzing usage and activity.

How We Protect Your Information

CareValidate discloses Personal Data to those of its employees, contractors, agents and affiliated organizations that need to know that information in order to process it on CareValidate’s behalf or to provide services. Some of those employees, contractors, agents and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your state, province or country. By using the Resources or providing us information, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

If you are a registered user of one or more Resources or have supplied your email address, you agree that in addition to any Resources you may have solicited or requested, CareValidate may further send you emails to provide you with information, , to solicit your feedback, or to keep you up to date on CareValidate.

We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, we may not immediately delete residual copies of Personal Data that is on our active servers and may not remove information from our backup or archive systems.

As noted, we primarily collect and store your Personal Data on behalf of our Clients. If you believe that Personal Data we maintain about you is inaccurate, please contact your employer or the organizer of the event you are attending, as applicable,.

In some cases, we cannot control, and are not responsible for, information that is shared about you. For example:

• Information You Share. The Platform may let you share information with others. Remember that when you share information publicly, it may be indexable by search engines or otherwise further disclosed.

• Social Media Accounts. CareValidate maintains various social network accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn. Please note that comments and information that you leave in such settings are likely to be broadly visible and may not be controlled by us. We are therefore not responsible for any information or messages you leave in such settings or for how such information may be used by others. Please review the terms of use and privacy policies of any social network platforms you use, as they will control your rights and responsibilities, and your use of those platforms is not covered by this Privacy Policy.

• Accessing and Updating Personal Data. If you provide us with information or create an account in order to access or receive Platform, we may or may not be able to provide you with access to your Personal Data. If information that we control about you is incorrect, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it (unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes). When updating your Personal Data, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.

Notice to California Residents – Your California Rights

A California resident who has provided Personal Data to a business with whom he/she has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes may request information about whether the business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. As noted above, we do not disclose personal information to third parties for such purposes.  

The above rights are separate from rights that California residents may have under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). Note that CareValidate is not subject to the CCPA as a “business” (as defined in the statute).

International Users

If you are visiting from the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that you are transferring information about you, including Personal Data, to a country and jurisdiction that may not have the same data protection laws as your country of residence. By providing us with Personal Data, you consent to the transfer of information about you, including your Personal Data, to the U.S. and the use and disclosure of information about you, including your Personal Data, as described in this Privacy Policy.

In some cases, we may transfer Personal Data provided to us by Clients in one country, to entities within our organization located outside of that country. If we transfer Personal Data internationally, we may rely on a legal framework that provides appropriate safeguards, which could include the standard contractual clauses, binding corporate rules, or another framework deemed adequate by the appropriate governing body (such as the Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission).

Identity of the Data Controller

A “data controller” is a person or entity that determines the purpose and means for which Personal Data is processed. The “data processor” is a person or entity that processes Personal Data on behalf of the data controller.

CareValidate acts as a data processor on behalf of Clients when it processes Personal Data for the purposes of providing our services to those Clients, such as managing vaccination status records or offering testing kits to employees. The identity of the controller of your Personal Data is your employer or the organizer of the event you are attending, as applicable. Please Contact Us for more information about the controller of your Personal Data.

Advertisements

Advertisements appearing on Platform may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by CareValidate and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Comments

You acknowledge and agree that CareValidate has no duty or obligation to respond to or save user comments, but we may further use and disclose your comments as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy.

Third Party Links

The Platform may contain links to webpages or tools operated by parties other than CareValidate. We do not control such websites or tools and are not responsible for their contents or the privacy policies or other practices of such websites or service providers. Our inclusion of links to an outside website or tool does not imply any endorsement of the material on such websites or tools or any association with their operators. Further, it is up to you to take precautions to ensure that whatever links you select or software you download (whether from an electronic platform (such as an app) or other websites) is free of such items as viruses, worms, trojan horses, defects and other items of a destructive nature. These websites and services may have their own privacy policies, which you will be subject to upon accessing the third party’s website. We strongly recommend you review the third party’s terms and policies.

Children

CareValidate does not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that their child has provided us with information without the consent of the parent or guardian, then the parent or guardian should immediately contact CareValidate via e-mail or through other written communications. We will delete such information as soon as reasonably possible. We strongly encourage parents and guardians to monitor their children's internet usage and to advise their children to never provide Personal Data through this Platform without their permission.

Do Not Track

Some browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature that lets you tell websites and online services that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. Such browser features and industry standards are not uniform, so our websites and online services do not respond to those signals.
