Our Site and services are not directed to children under 13 (or under 16 for individuals in the European Union). We will never knowingly collect any personally identifiable information about such children. If Caravan obtains actual knowledge that it has collected personal information about a child under the age of 13 (under 16 in the EU), that information will be immediately deleted and will not be shared or disclosed to third parties.
If you choose to have your account verified to confirm your status as a student, we may allow a third party platform to access the specific personal information you provide in order to perform the verification.
How Do We Use Your Personal Data?
Corporate and Other Community Sharing
There is interest by large volume consumer communities and organizations (companies, universities, hospitals, etc.) (“Communities”) to introduce the Site or services to their employees and members. If you have registered to use the Site or services through a code, link or other registration credential furnished by a Community (a “Community Subscription”), the Community will have access to your name and the date you registered to use the Site or services and will have access to your usage information on an aggregated basis with all other members of the Community that are using the Site or services. Your Community may also have access to your usage information on an individual basis if you have provided appropriate consent under applicable law for such sharing. For example, many employers are offering incentive programs based on employee participation in health & wellness related programs and desire to better understand how each of their individual employees is using the Site or services.
We may partner with ad networks and other ad serving providers (“Advertising Providers”) who serve ads on behalf of us and others on non-affiliated websites or mobile applications. Some of those ads may be personalized, meaning that they are intended to be relevant to you based on information Advertising Providers collect about your visits to this site and elsewhere over time.
You may visit www.aboutads.info to learn more about this type of advertising and how to opt-out of this form of advertising by companies participating in the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) self-regulatory program. Note that electing to opt-out will not stop advertising from appearing in your browser or applications. It may make the ads you see less relevant to your interests. In addition, note that if you use a different browser or erase cookies from your browser, you may need to renew your opt-out choice.
You may “opt-out” of receiving marketing or promotional communications from us at any time. Contact us at [email protected] to unsubscribe.
We maintain reasonable and appropriate measures designed to maintain information we collect in a secure manner. We have taken certain physical, electronic, and administrative steps to safeguard and secure the information we collect from Site visitors. We likewise require that our vendors who process data for us, some of whom are located outside of the United States, take appropriate measures to secure data. Even though we follow reasonable procedures to try to protect the information in our possession, no security system is perfect and we cannot promise, and you should not expect, that your information will be secure in all circumstances.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
All payment information is stored with our payment processor and is never stored on Caravan’s servers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of the Site and services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone, and suggest that you change your password frequently.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to the Site and services; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.

Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
Caravan utilizes both first and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are set by Caravan. Third-party cookies are set by companies other than Caravan, such as analytics providers.
What are cookies used for?
Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit Caravan. Cookies also make your interactions with Caravan faster and more secure. Additionally, cookies allow us to bring you Caravan advertising off of the Caravan site.
