Welcome to Curatio! Thank you so much for using our platform. Like you, we are very concerned about protecting your privacy. This Privacy Statement explains the Personal Information we collect and the specific ways we use, keep safe and disclose it. Our privacy practices are based on applicable privacy legislation as well as ten internationally recognized privacy principles.
In this statement, when we say “we”, “us” and “our”, we are referring to Curatio Networks Ltd. a registered British Columbia company. When we say “you”, “member” or “user” we are referring to the person using our Services or visiting our website at curatio.me.
Curatio is a mobile health companion that provides peer-to-peer support and self-management tools (the “Services”). In the course of providing the Services, we may collect Personal Information. “Personal Information” means information about an identifiable individual such as name, email address, IP address, residential address and telephone number. Personal information also encompasses more sensitive information such as gender, age, health status, family information, ID numbers and any other data assigned to an individual.
Collection of Personal Information will vary with how you use the Services. Other than the information we require to set up your account, you can decide how much personal information you want to provide and share with others.
Curatio’s Privacy Officer is responsible for the creation, oversight and implementation of our privacy management program and procedures to protect Personal Information, for receiving your privacy-related questions and for providing you with information about our privacy practices.

We may transfer any information we have about you in connection with a merger or sale involving all or part of our business or as part of a corporate reorganization or stock sale or other change in corporate control.

We use service providers located outside of Canada to process and/or store Personal Information for us. Please note that Personal Information in the custody of these service providers may be subject to access by the law enforcement authorities of those jurisdictions in which the service providers are located.
Our Privacy Officer can provide further information about our policies and practices regarding service providers located outside of Canada and further information about how these service providers, collect, use, disclose or store personal information on Curatio’s behalf.
Curatio relies on you to ensure that the Personal Information you provide to us while using the Services is as accurate, complete and up-to-date as necessary for the purposes for which it is to be used. You are welcome to make changes, request deletion or corrections to Personal Information at any time by updating your profile and account settings or by contacting us at email@example.com
Curatio uses administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect your Personal Information against loss, theft, and unauthorized access, use, disclosure, copying, modification, disposal, or destruction in accordance with applicable legal requirements and industry best practices. For example, we implement encryption and security controls to protect against unauthorized access to Personal Information during electronic transmission and require third parties acting on our behalf to maintain reasonable and appropriate safeguards. We also ensure that only those employees responsible for the Services’ operations have physical or technical access to Personal Information and only where such access is required to perform work authorized by their supervisors. We train our team to follow privacy and security practices specific to the Services.
When you use our Services, some data is cached in the memory of the device. Cached data is encrypted and kept on the device as long as you are logged in, even if the application is put in the background. The data is deleted from the device when you sign out of the app and does not persist. Be careful about leaving any apps with Personal Information open on your device, as other people can access them.
We will review and update our security policies and controls as technology changes to ensure ongoing personal information security, however please bear in mind that no internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free and no security system is impenetrable. We cannot fully guarantee the confidentiality of any information that you share with us.
Curatio makes clear and transparent notice of our privacy practices publicly available via this Privacy Statement.
We will advise you at the first reasonable opportunity upon discovering or being advised of an incident where your Personal Information is lost, stolen, accessed, used, disclosed, copied, modified, or disposed of by unauthorized persons or in an unauthorized manner.
You own the information you submit to Curatio and can review, edit or remove it at any time. Upon written request, Curatio will also provide you with a list of entities (e.g. third party service providers) to whom we have disclosed your Personal information.
In order for Curatio to communicate with you via our mobile applications, which you may choose to install on your mobile device, we save a “device token” on your device. We use the device token to provide you with notifications relating to the Services. The device token identifies your mobile device to us but cannot be used to identify you. We store the token in encrypted format and retain it only as long as necessary to provide you with the Services.
Curatio may offer publicly accessible blogs and community forums. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected and used by others who access them. We take no responsibility for any information which you post or publish on blogs or forums and you agree to indemnify and hold Curatio harmless for any loss, cost, complaint, damage, claim or liability whatsoever arising from any such post or publication.
With your consent, we may use your testimonial or comments about our Services on our website and in other materials. If at any time you want your name, testimonial or comment removed, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s important to guard your privacy when you are online. If our Services contain links to other websites, those websites are not governed by this Privacy Statement. Whether we have posted those links or other organizations or individuals have, you should read their privacy policies and make an informed decision about whether you want to use those websites or their services.
We may update this statement to reflect changes to our information practices but we will not reduce your rights under this Privacy Statement without your explicit consent. We’ll post any changes to this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice (including email notification of privacy notice changes for certain Services). We’ll also keep prior versions of this Privacy Statement in an archive for your review.
