What data do we collect?
We may collect the following data from you which will be stored on our servers:
- Profile data including your email address.
- Your settings data which allows Me v PMDD to remember any customizations you have made (i.e. notifications, reminders, etc.)
- Your symptom tracking data.
- Your treatment tracking data.
- Your journal entries.
- Your app usage data (i.e. IP address, mobile operating system (e.g. Android or iOS), device type and model, or network provider). This helps us identify app malfunctions and further improve the app.
By using the Me v PMDD mobile app, you agree that:
Me v PMDD may store and process personal data you input into the App in order to provide service to you. Me v PMDD may also store and process this data to improve app functionality and services, such as sending you information and reminders, which may include personal data, through the app or to the email address you shared with Me v PMDD.
Me v PMDD may use your symptom and treatment tracking data to create anonymous information for academic and clinical research purposes. Any data shared for research purposes cannot be associated with you as an individual, or identify you in any way.
We also store communication history with you, including your email address, in order to handle inquiries and provide ongoing support.
If you use the Me v PMDD App without creating an account:
- Your profile and symptom/treatment tracking data is stored on our servers under a “guest account” that is saved using your unique hardware ID. Your device is the key to identifying your data, not your name or email address.
*While you may use Me v PMDD without an account, we recommend creating an account, so that you can access your data from multiple devices and maintain your data in the case of device loss or damage. If your device is lost or damaged we may not be able to identify and restore your data to you.
Backing up your data
If you are using Me v PMDD without an account, we recommend regular back ups so you don’t lose your data.
Closing your account:
At any time you may close your Me v PMDD account by going to the Account Settings page. There you will be prompted to confirm that you wish to close your account and must provide your account password. Your account will then be marked as closed. If you wish to permanently delete all of your account data from our servers, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

How we store your data
When you use Me v PMDD, your personal profile data is stored separately from your symptom and treatment tracking data and your service settings.
