      • “Information” related to an applicable medical condition(s) for you or your family member.

      • age
      • education and training
      • race and nationality
      • financial details related to caregiving.

 

Automatic collection of IP addresses, referral URLs, and other “Information” connection access directly to this website may also be recorded by BFC’s website or email system.

 

2. Use

BFC uses the “Information” to customize the website, make appropriate service offerings, and identify Reader interests. For example, BFC may email a Reader “Information” related to the website’s subject matter. BFC may also use the “Information” to contact a Reader in response to specific inquiries or provide requested “Information.”

 

3. Storage

“Information” collected by BFC is stored electronically and used as indicated above. Efforts to protect the data are in place, but BFC cannot guarantee that access cannot occur.

 

4.  Distribution of the “Information”

Readers may receive communications from BFC or third parties, including a newsletter, emails, or updates from BFC. Readers have the option to subscribe and unsubscribe to the newsletter at any time.

 

BFC makes a good faith effort to respond to requests promptly. After responding, the request is either discarded or archived, depending on the nature of the communication. However, BFC email functionality does not provide a completely secure and confidential means of communication. For example, your email communication may be accessed or viewed by another internet Reader while in transit to or from https://becomingafamilycaregiver.com or info@becomingafamilycaregiver.com. If you wish to keep your communication private, do not use email. Instead, send a letter to the address below.

5. Use of Cookies

Advertisers and affiliates associated with https://becomingafamilycaregiver.com may use cookies when Readers visit their sites directly from BFC. They use those cookies to collect “Information” as a way of measuring the effectiveness of their advertising or to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to the Reader or to avoid running the same ads multiple times. Such “Information” may include the Reader’s IP address, browser type, operating system, web pages visited, time of visits, content viewed, ads viewed, and other clickstream data. BFC does not control the third parties’ use of cookies or manage the “Information” gathered through them.

 

BFC is not responsible for the privacy practices of its advertisers or affiliates. Please read the Privacy policies of each site visited to determine what “Information” that site collects.

 

 

6.   Partners or Service Providers Access to “Information”

BFC participates in affiliations with vendors who may have access to certain “Information” on a need-to-know basis for evaluating Readers for service eligibility. BFC’s privacy policy does not cover their collection or use of “Information.”

 

BFC disclosure of “Information” complies with the law. Disclosure of Information by BFC includes the following reasons:

    • to comply with a court order,
    • in response to a subpoena,
    • following a request from a law enforcement agency to release “Information,” or
    • when reasonably necessary to protect the safety of Readers.

 

7.  Security of “Information”

The “Information” of Readers is only accessible to the Owner, the only employee.

Readers may contact BFC to update “Information” about them or to correct any inaccuracies by either:

    • Calling 804-241-5350
    • Emailing BFC at info@becomingafamilycaregiver com
    • Deletion or Deactivation of “Information” from the Website’s database is achieved by contacting the Owner. Deactivation of “Information” is functionally deleted; however, it may be impossible to delete a Reader’s entry without retaining some residual “Information” due to backup records and copies that may exist outside the control of BFC. However, moving forward, BFC will not sell, transfer, or use “Information” relating to that individual in any way.
