This information is stored in log files and is collected automatically. We may combine this information from your browser or your mobile device with other information that we or our partners collect about you, including across devices.

Automatically Collected Information

 

Information about your computer hardware and software may be automatically collected by Open Home Care.

This information is used for the operation of the Web site, to maintain quality of the Web site, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Open Home Care Web site.

 

Use of Cookies

 

The Open Home Care Web site may use "cookies," activity tracking, bug reporting, web beacons and other personalized advertising to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

 

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Open Home Care pages, or register with Open Home Care site or purchase Services, a cookie helps Open Home Care to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Open Home Care website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Open Home Care features that you customized.

 

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Open Home Care Services or websites you visit.

 

For more information, please see our Cookie Policy.

 

Security of your Personal Information

 

Open Home Care secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure by restricting the same to need-to-access individuals and by using encryption and vulnerability scanning.

 

We strive to take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or alteration of your personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations inherent to the Internet which are beyond our control; and (b) security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this Site cannot be guaranteed. Please note that non-encrypted communication using email is not secure. Thus, we cannot guarantee data security in email communication and, therefore, recommend using physical mail for confidential information.

 

International Transfer

 

We operate globally so it is necessary to transfer your information internationally. In particular, your information will likely be transferred to and processed via servers located in the United States. Canada, the United States, European Economic Area (“EEA”) Member States, and other countries all have different laws. When your information is moved from your home country to another country, the laws and rules that protect your personal information in the country to which your information is transferred may be different from those in the country in which you live. For example, the circumstances in which law enforcement can access personal information may vary from country to country. In particular, if your information is in the United States, it may be accessed by government authorities in accordance with U.S. law.

 

To the extent that Open Home Care is deemed to transfer personal information outside of the EEA, we rely separately, alternatively, and independently on the following legal bases to transfer your information:

  

Privacy Shield. Open Home Care does not participate in Privacy Shield at this time. However, Open Home Care may rely on the EU-US Privacy Shield to transfer personal information to some of our third-party service providers in the United States, where they are certified to receive such information under the Privacy Shield Program.

 

Necessary for the performance of the contract. Open Home Care provides a voluntary service; you can choose whether or not you want to utilize the Services. However, if you want to utilize the Services, you need to agree to our Terms and Conditions which set out the contract between Open Home Care and its customers. As we operate in countries worldwide (including in the United States) and may use technical infrastructure in the United States to deliver the Services to you, in accordance with the contract between us, we need to transfer your personal information to the United States and to other jurisdictions as necessary to provide the Services. Simply put, we can’t provide you with the Services and perform our contract with you without moving your personal information around the world.  

 

Children Under Thirteen; Notice to Minors

 

Open Home Care does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen. If you are under the age of thirteen, you must ask your parent or guardian for permission to use the Web site and Services. We request that all users of the Web site and our Services who are under the age of thirteen not disclose or provide any personally-identifiable information. If we discover that a child under thirteen has provided us with personally-identifiable information, we will delete that child’s personally-identifiable information from our records. You are responsible for any and all account activity conducted by a minor under your account. 

 

In addition to protecting the privacy of children under age thirteen we are committed to protect the privacy of minors. Though neither our Web site nor our Services is not targeted to minors nor is it intended to be used by minors, if, for any reason a minor has shared information via our Web site and/or Services said minor may request and obtain removal of such information by contacting us at admin@openhomecare.com. Although we offer deletion capability, you should be aware that the removal of content may not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of that content or information provided.

 

Do Not Track Disclosure

 

Please note that while you may have the opportunity to opt-out of targeted advertising as discussed in the “How to Opt-Out” section above, and you may be able to control the use of cookies through your Web browser as described in the “Use of Cookies” section below, some Web browsers may also give you the ability to enable a “do not track” setting. This setting sends a special signal to the Web sites you encounter while Web browsing. This “do not track” signal is different from disabling certain forms of tracking by declining cookies in your browser settings, as browsers with the “do not track” setting enabled still have the ability to accept cookies. We do not respond to Web browser “do not track” signals at this time. If we do so in the future, we will describe how we do so in this Privacy Policy. For more information about “do not track,” visit http://www.allaboutdnt.org/.

 

Retention

 

Open Home Care will retain your information only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this policy, for as long as your account is active (i.e., for the lifetime of your Open Home Care account), as described in this policy, or as needed to provide the Services to you. If you no longer want Open Home Care to use your information to provide the Services to you, you may close your account. Open Home Care will retain and use your information to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your information to comply with applicable tax/revenue laws), resolve disputes, enforce our agreements, and as otherwise described in this policy. We also retain log files for internal analysis purposes. These log files are generally retained for a brief period of time, except in cases where they are used for site safety and security, to improve site functionality, or we are legally obligated to retain them for longer time periods.

From time to time, Open Home Care may contact you via email for the purpose of providing announcements, promotional offers, alerts, confirmations, surveys, and/or other general communication.
