All contractors and other third parties with whom we have a contractual arrangement and with whom we share personal data are contractually obligated to ensure that their practices meet our standards and are fully compliant with PIPEDA and other applicable privacy legislation.
Our primary business is to help you keep track of your pain episodes and to enable you to share that information with your health care providers or any other third party with whom you decide to share your information through our I-Engage,I-Engage Web, I-Quantify, or I-Quantify-W software (the "Software"). All personal information that you may provide to us is voluntary and you are, at no time, required or obliged to provide any information.
However, please note that for security purposes and to improve our software as well as to determine user insight in to the use of the Software, we may collect some information from your device which includes error reporting; general usage statistics; device information; app version; and time stamps.
