The Service is intended solely as a tool to assist you in understanding and managing wellness related information, including research references.

When you create an account with us to use the Platform, we will ask you for personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) and other information. Personal Information may include, but is not limited to, your name, username, phone number, email address, home address, and any other information that you are required or choose to provide to Suggestic that could be used to personally identify you.

We may also collect information that does not identify you, such as your zip code (on its own), gender, age, etc. and may combine it with other information for purposes of our operations or to share the information for purposes described below.

B. Usage Data When you visit the Website, whether you are logged in or just browsing without logging in, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. Similarly, when you log into the Platform using the Mobile App, our services automatically record information that the Mobile App sends. The information sent automatically by your browser and the Mobile App is referred to as “Usage Data.” This Usage Data may include information such as the manufacturer and model of your mobile device, your Internet Service Provider (ISP); your device’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (or other device identifier), browser type, and operating system; referring/exit pages; clickstream data; pages of the Website that you visit, the time spent on those pages or interacting with certain portions of the Mobile App, information you search for on the Platform, Website and Mobile App access times and dates; and other statistics.

We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Platform, including for technical and administrative purposes, to increase the functionality and user-friendliness of the Platform, and to better tailor it to our End Users’ needs.

Additionally, Suggestic may use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the Platform. When an End User clicks onto one of these URLs, the End User will pass through our server before arriving at the destination webpage. Suggestic tracks this click-through data to help us monitor and analyze usage. We may also use clear gifs or pixel tags, which are tiny graphic images for operational purposes.

II. Collection of Information Suggestic may use a number of different techniques and technologies to collect Personal Information, Non-Identifying Information, and Usage Data. For example, Suggestic may use cookies, log files, clear gifs, pixel tags, embedded scripts, and/or other technology used to monitor your Suggestic experience.

A. Cookies

As is regular practice on many websites, the Platform uses cookies and other technologies to help us understand which parts of the Platform are used and how. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to and stored on your device from our server. Cookies allow you, for example, to enter your password less frequently.

The Platform uses cookies to determine whether an End User is active and for other business purposes, such as cookies that send data directly to Suggestic and agents and contractors acting on behalf of Suggestic, The cookies on our Platform do not track Internet activity across different websites. Since cookies are now used as industry standard, most devices automatically accept cookies, but you may be able to change your device’s settings to decline them. If you prefer not to enable cookies, you may choose to disable them; however, please note that certain features on the Platform will not be available to you once cookies are disabled.

B. Usage Data

Usage Data are collected automatically by the Platform’s servers and software. For example, because the Website automatically collects Usage Data for all visitors and End Users that visit the Website, your Website session will be tracked. Additionally, the Mobile App collects Usage Data and sends it to the Platform servers to facilitate the Services provided to you through the Mobile App. You agree that we may collect and use technical data and related information, including technical information about your device, system and application software, and peripherals, to facilitate the provision of software updates, product support and other services to you related to the Mobile App.

V. Security and transfer of data We are very concerned with safeguarding your information and we use industry standard safety practices, that also are in compliance with the 2018 GDPR. We employ administrative, physical, and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. For example, we use commercially reasonable security measures such as encryption, firewalls, and secure socket layers (SSL) to protect End User information.

Please note that no security system is impenetrable. Accordingly, we do not guarantee the security of our databases, nor that information you supply won't be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet or other network. Any information you transmit to Suggestic, you do at your own risk. We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored “personal data” (or similar data, as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting through the Platform in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
