Your device collects data to estimate the fertile window. The data collected includes electrolyte levels in vaginal fluids. When your device syncs with our applications or software, data recorded on your device is transferred from your device to our servers.
When you access or use our Services, we receive certain usage or network activity information. This includes information about your interaction with the Services, for example, when you view or search content, install applications or software, create or log into your account, or pair your device to your account.
We also collect data about the devices and computers you use to access the Services, including IP addresses, browser type, language, operating system or mobile device information (including device and application identifiers), the referring web page, pages visited, location (depending on the permissions you have granted us), and cookie information.

You may also choose to grant us access to your exercise or activity data from another service. You can stop sharing the information from the other service with us by removing our access to that other service.
HOW WE USE INFORMATION
We use the information we collect for the following purposes.
PROVIDE AND MAINTAIN THE SERVICES
We use your identity, contact, transaction and account data to process purchases and manage the delivery of products from the Webshop. This includes logistics, preventing fraudulent payments and contacting you regarding your purchase.
IMPROVE, PERSONALIZE, AND DEVELOP THE SERVICES
We use the information we collect to improve and personalize the Services and to develop new ones. For example, we use the information to troubleshoot and protect against errors; perform data analysis and testing; conduct research and surveys; and develop new features and Services.

You can control marketing communications and most Service notifications by using your notification preferences in your mobile device settings or via the “Unsubscribe” link in an email.
TO CONDUCT RESEARCH
Women’s health is important to Lady Technologies and we invest in scientific research in sexual and reproductive health in order to advance women’s health. We also conduct research for the purpose of evaluating the effectiveness and suitability of the App for different user groups. Thirdly we use the results of our research to communicate the benefits and limitations of kegg to healthcare professionals.
If we have your consent, we may use the data that we collect or that you provide in pseudonymized form whenever possible for clinical studies, scientific articles and other research purposes as may be disclosed when your data are collected. “Pseudonymized” means that identifying information is replaced with something else so that additional information is needed to re-identify an individual. However, personal data is anonymized and aggregated before any such publications are shared outside of Lady Technologies. We may also contact you with requests to participate in specific research projects run by us or our business partners.
We use identity, contact, and data that we collect about our users of the App to send you newsletters and other marketing communications (e.g. push notifications regarding kegg and our Services, including campaigns and offers). We also process user data to conduct internal usage analysis for the purpose of creating and sending relevant messages about our products. Some marketing data is collected by using cookies. These cookies include third party services that may collect information about your visits to our site for analytics, retargeting and conversion tracking purposes. More information about cookies and related technology is provided below.
We also use tools that help us identify and reach out to existing and new customers, by matching cookies, device identifiers and hashed (a pseudonymisation technique) email addresses of people who have been using our Services with people on social media platforms to create so called “Custom Audiences” (this enables us to send targeted ads to people who have been using our Services), and “Lookalike Audiences” (this enables us to send targeted ads to people who have similar traits to our Custom Audience). The social media platforms will not share the hashed email address with third parties or other advertisers and will delete it promptly after the match process is complete. Please note that we do not share any Sensitive Data or group users based on sensitive data for the purpose of Custom and Lookalike Audiences.
You may also be contacted and enabled to complete surveys or take part in interviews for marketing purposes. We will process the profile data that you provide in such surveys and interviews to analyze user preferences, improve and assess the effectiveness of marketing activities, use as marketing material or other promotional purposes as disclosed when your personal data are collected. Participation in surveys and interviews is voluntary.
You always have the right to opt-out of receiving marketing communication or having your data processed to identify Custom and Lookalike Audiences from us by opting out, by contacting us at email@example.com.
PROMOTE SAFETY AND SECURITY
We use the information we collect to promote the safety and security of the Services, our users, and other parties. For example, we may use the information to authenticate users, protect against fraud and abuse, respond to a legal request or claim, conduct audits, and enforce our terms and policies.

We never sell the personal information of our users. We do not share your personal information except in the limited circumstances described below.
WHEN YOU AGREE OR DIRECT US TO SHARE
You may direct us to disclose your information to others, such as when you use our community features like the forums or message boards and other social tools. You may also direct us to share your information in other ways, for example, when you give third-party application access to your account. Their use of your information will be governed by their privacy policies and terms. You can revoke your consent to share with third-party applications using your account settings.
FOR EXTERNAL PROCESSING
We transfer information to our corporate affiliates, service providers, and other partners who process it for us, based on our instructions, and in compliance with this policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures. These partners provide us with services globally, including for customer support, information technology, payments, sales, marketing, data analysis, research, and surveys.
