CareCircle Privacy Overview
CareCircle is dedicated to helping you share information with friends and family during and after a health event. When you set up a CareCircle account, we will provide a platform for you to share updates about your or a loved one’s progress. Our goal is simple: to make it easy for you to control and provide information to friends and family.
CareCircle contains information and tools regarding health, wellness, and communication. You can create an individual site and visit other user sites (each a “CareCircle Page”) and use other tools to discuss, learn, and offer support to others experiencing a health event.
