We are committed to:

  • Describing how your information may be used or shared in this Privacy Policy.
  • Using reasonable measures to keep your information secure.
  • Never selling your information or sharing it with third parties for marketing purposes.
  • Only sharing your information in limited circumstances, such as to improve this site, to comply with the law, for the research study stated above, or to protect you and others.

  • If you add content or make a change to this site without logging in, that content or change will be publicly and permanently archived in the public interest; your content or change will be attributed to the IP address used at the time rather than a username.
  • Our community of volunteer editors and contributors is a self-policing body. Certain administrators of this site, who are chosen by the community, use tools that grant them limited access to nonpublic information about recent contributions so they may protect this site and enforce policies. This includes any data you enter into this wiki, including, but not limited to, your email address.
  • For the protection of this site and other users, if you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, you may not use this site.


Cookies:

We believe strongly in the values of privacy and transparency. To that end, we have created this Cookie Statement as a clear reference guide to the use of cookies on MyCareBudget. This Cookie Statement explains how we use cookies (and other locally stored data technologies), how we use third-party cookies, and how you can manage your cookie options.

What is a cookie? A "cookie" is a tiny data file that we transfer onto your computer, mobile phone, or any other device that you use to access MyCareBudget, and is generally used for authentication and tracking. Every cookie expires after a certain period of time, but that period varies depending on what the cookie is used for and how your browser is configured.

Cookies are often categorized based on how long they remain active before they expire. A "session" cookie is one that generally expires when you close your web browser or mobile application. A "persistent" cookie is one that remains in your device, even after you close your browser or mobile application. A persistent cookie expires according to the duration set by us, or when you delete it manually.

You may remove or disable cookies through your browser settings.

What types of cookies does MyCareBudget use and for what purposes?

Cookies are not required in order to read or edit MyCareBudget. We use the information we receive from cookies and other locally stored data technologies to make your experience with MyCareBudget safer and better. Cookies are required in order to login and for your edits to be associated to a user account; without cookies, your edits will be anonymous and unassociated with an account.

We use cookies, JavaScript, tracking pixels, and other locally stored data technologies to accomplish different purposes. Below is a list of the categories of cookies we use and what they are used for.

Functionality:

These cookies help MyCareBudget work and are essential in order to enable you to move around MyCareBudget and use its features. These cookies are useful for remembering your username in the login field, maintaining your session and remembering previous actions, keeping you logged in (if selected), and more.

Preferences:

These cookies store your preferences, so that they can be remembered the next time you use MyCareBudget, for a more customised experience. These cookies are useful for recognizing and maintaining your language preference, remembering changes you have made to text size, fonts and other display preferences, so we can provide you with the look and feel that you want, and more.

Performance and Analysis:

These cookies count the number of visitors and collect information about how you use MyCareBudget. This allows us to better understand your user experience on tMyCareBudget and helps us improve them for you and other users — for instance, by making sure users are finding what they need easily.

What are my cookie options?

While this is not a comprehensive list, below are some of the things that you can do to limit use of cookies and other locally stored data technologies on your device. While cookies and other locally stored data technologies may not be necessary to use our sites, some features may not function properly if you disable them.

You can:

remove or disable specific locally stored data on your browser's settings (you can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent); use a browser that can block third-party cookies; or install a plug-in to block locally stored data, if one is available. Turning off the browser's cookies will prevent tracking pixels from tracking your specific activity. A tracking pixel may still record an anonymous visit from your IP address, but unique information will not be recorded. If you do not want to receive tracking pixels, you will need to disable HTML images in your browser-based email client, and that may affect your ability to view images in other emails that you receive.
