Welcome to our Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, disclose, and secure Personal Information about our users (“you” or “your”) of our website located at https://www.tandemcareplanning.com and any associated online Service and mobile applications related to non-medical caregiver support services (the “Service”). The terms “Tandem Careplanning,” “Tandem,” “we”, “us”, and “our” include Tandem Careplanning, a Public Benefit Corporation and our affiliates and subsidiaries. This Privacy Policy is incorporated by reference into our Terms of Use. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Service or provide us with any Personal Information. Any capitalized terms used and not defined in this Privacy Policy shall have the meaning(s) given to them in our Terms of Use.

When referred to in this Privacy Policy, the term “Personal Information” includes any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular individual or household, including any information that is subject to applicable data protection laws.
