CASEBOOK APPLICATIONS PRIVACY POLICY

Last Updated: March 11, 2021

Casebook PBC, a public benefit corporation, and its affiliates (“Casebook”, “we” or “us”) is a public benefit corporation providing technology products and services, including the Casebook Platform, Casebook and other applications and services for human services. This Privacy Policy applies to information that either you submit or we collect from or about you when you use our mobile applications and other online products and services that link to this Privacy Policy, including the Casebook Platform, Casebook solutions, and our other applications for human services (collectively, our “Services”); contact our Customer Success or Help Desk team about the Services; or use our Knowledge Base or other resources that help you use the Services. Except as explained in the prior sentence, this Privacy Policy does not apply to any information submitted to or otherwise collected via the public-facing parts of our websites (including https://www.casebook.net/), which is instead covered by a separate privacy policy. 

This Privacy Policy applies to Customer End Users and Portal Users.  “Customer End Users” are employees, contractors, and agents that use and/or access the Services on behalf of our business, non-profit, and government entity customers (each a “Customer”). “Portal Users” are users who are invited to access the Portal portion of the Services, including social and human services providers (“Providers”), Customer’s clients (“Clients”), and others who use the Services to add, modify or view information about themselves, their businesses or their experiences with the Customer (including their subcontractors). Customer End Users and Portal Users are referred to collectively and individually as “users” or “you” in this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to aggregated or de-identified information that cannot reasonably be used to identify you.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the “Last Updated” legend at the top of this policy and, in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our website homepage or sending you a notification). We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy regularly to stay informed about our information practices and the choices available to you.
