GDPR & Privacy

Care Direct Technology is registered with the ICO and complies with GDPR guidelines. Individuals sign up to our Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions and accept that Care Direct Technology products provide guidance only and are intended for use in addition to any professionally recommendations; it does not replace prescribed medication or elements of care packages.

Camera Access

Cameras placed in the users’ homes – whether as part of the video doorbell, hub or a standalone camera – are only activated when an event triggers them, i.e., a fall, someone coming to the door or when a video call is instigated. Only the designated carers or family members can view the camera feed when such an incident occurs, then once it has been resolved the stream is disabled and cannot be re-opened. This is to prevent ‘hacking.’ At no time is any video recorded or stored by us.

Database

Service users, family and carers are required to link their accounts, which is done by an invitation to a personal email account. This limits the interaction that can be made with the service user to safeguard them against unknown people. Carers can interact with the service user or family without having to share their personal contact details.

Encryption
