When you use our Services, you may be creating and maintaining a personal, private area of the application (“Individual Team”) on behalf of yourself and/or one or more persons within your care team (“Care Team”), or visiting and posting to an Individual Team created by someone else within your Care Team. By their very nature, theseIndividual Teams contain a great deal of personal information about the subject of the Individual Team and other Users on the Care Team. Our goal is to balance our Users' need to find each other and communicate information and support against our Users' desire for a measure of privacy. By establishing anIndividual Team, you represent that you have all consents and authorizations necessary to use the information relating to members of your Care Team necessary to establish an Individual Team. 

Site Access
The Individual Team is accessible “By Invitation Only.” Once established, every member of a Care Team, including the creators of Individual Teams and all Users are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the Individual Team by the care recipient’s wishes.

You may provide certain information directly to us when you use the Site.

When you create a Care Team, we may collect identifying information about members of the Care Team and the caregiver, such as the caregiver’s work status and living situation. We also collect information about how the supporter can help the care recipient. We may use this information to suggest services that may be of use to the caregiver or care recipient.

We don’t collect any of the other information that could appear in your device address book including names, email addresses, etc. If any of your contacts aren’t yet usingTCARE, we protect their privacy by managing the phone number in a way that is designed to prevent those contacts from being identified by TCARE. 

About gallery and photos upload
Photos and Gallery on both IOS and Android are the features that allow us to check the photos in the gallery when access is provided. It also means that the TCARE users have an option where the TCARE users can disable or enable the option. TCARE uses the photo and Gallery simply to upload a profile picture and is also used in the chat where share the scanned image from your photo gallery. Since all the chat is end-to-end encryption, the photos are not shared or used. We don’t share your gallery lit with other companies for their use.  

Camera and microphone
In IOS, the user must explicitly grant permission for each app to access cameras and microphones.Before your app can use the capture system for the first time, IOS shows an alert asking the user to grant your app access to the camera, as shown below.IOS remembers the user’s response to this alert, so subsequent uses of the capture system don’t cause it to appear again. You will only need to request consent the first time your app accesses the camera. The user can change permission settings for your app in Settings > Privacy.
