Family Care Hub: Privacy Policy

Family Care Hub is committed to respecting and protecting the privacy of the individuals and organisations who use our services. Family Care Hub (‘we’, ‘us’ or ‘our’) means Family Care Hub Pty Ltd and its wholly owned subsidiaries.

The purpose of this Privacy Policy (the ‘Policy’) is to inform you how information may be collected from you and how it may be used and protected by us. This Policy applies across all websites we own or operate and all services we provide, including the websites and apps we offer, which for the purposes of this Policy will collectively be referred to as our ‘Services’. Accordingly, this Policy is intended for all users of our Services, including our customers and the affiliates of our customers (such as our customer’s employees and patients). However, this in no way means we are responsible for the privacy or data security practices of our customers and how they use our Services.

By using any of our Services you agree to this Policy. If you do not agree, you may and should not use our Services.

Definitions:

Personally Identifiable Information (PII): Information which relates to an individual who is identifiable or reasonably identifiable from that information alone or with other information that is either present or accessible by us.

Personal Health Information (PHI): Health information pertaining to individuals comprising identifiable and sensitive data.

Aggregate data: A dataset containing multiple records from same or different individuals and can be personally identifiable, de-identified or anonymised.

De-identified data: A dataset stripped of personally identifying identifiers (e.g. national identifiers, insurance numbers etc.) and data elements (e.g. date of birth, address, email, phone numbers etc.) which can be used to re-identify individuals. However a mapping exists elsewhere to match records to such identifying information so re-identification is possible.

Anonymised data: same as deidentified data except a mapping doesn’t exist so it is not possible to re-identify individuals using reasonable computing resources, know-how and availability of additional data which can be linked.
