Your User Content is posted on and transmitted to others at your own risk. We cannot control the actions of other users of the Services with whom you may choose to share your User Content. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that your User Content will not be re-posted or viewed by unauthorized persons.

Information Collected in Connection to Our Diagnostic Devices. If you purchase or receive access to a Visby diagnostic device, we will process the following information:
Information From Third Parties. When you interact with any Visby account on a social media platform, we may collect the personal information that you or the platform make available to us on that page or account, including your social media account ID and/or user name associated with that social media service, your profile picture, email address, friends list or information about the people and groups you are connected to and how you interact with them, and any information you have made public in connection with that social media service. The information we obtain depends on your privacy settings on the applicable social media service; we will comply with the privacy policies of the social media platform and we will only collect and store such personal information that we are permitted to collect by those social media platforms.
Cookies are text files, containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to your browsing device (such as a computer, mobile device or smartphone) when you visit or use our website or Services. Cookies can be recognized by the website that downloaded them — or other websites that use the same cookies. This helps websites know if the browsing device has visited them before.
There are session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie lasts while your browser is open and is automatically deleted when you close your browser. A persistent cookie lasts until you or your browser deletes the cookies or they expire.
Cookies set by us are called “first party cookies”, while cookies set by parties other than Visby are called “third party cookies”. The parties that set third party cookies can recognize your device, both when you use the Services and when you use other websites or mobile apps.
Cookies collect and process both personal information, as well as information that does not identify you as an individual. To the extent that IP addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we will treat these identifiers as prescribed under such applicable laws. If we combine non-personal information with personal information, the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.
In addition to cookies, we may use other technologies that are similar to cookies, like web beacons, flash cookies, or pixels to track how you use our Services.

Our Service-related communications may include transactional messages about your account, billing information, your results, surveys, support, customer service, research you may be interested in or are participating in, policy changes, or other Service-related notifications. We may also use your personal information for marketing, promotional, or sweepstakes related communications and initiatives.

To Enforce Our Terms, Agreements or Policies.

For Product Research and Development. We want to ensure our Services are continually improving and expanding so that we meet and exceed your needs and expectations. To do so, we may process your personal information to improve, optimize, or expand our Services or features of our Services. We do so by processing information about your use of the Services, any information you provide to us, and by measuring, tracking, and analyzing trends and usage in connection to your use or the performance of our Services. We take additional security measures when processing your personal information for such purposes, such as by de-identifying (or “pseudonymizing”) your personal information and limiting access to such data. Without processing your information for such purposes, we may not be able to ensure your continued satisfaction when using our Services.
For Scientific Research and Clinical Trial Support. Visby may use your de-identified or pseudonymized personal information conduct, whether independently, in collaboration with third parties, or sponsored by a third party, scientific research aimed at the creation of generalizable knowledge. Research may ultimately be published in a peer-reviewed journal or commercialized either by Visby or a third party, but will not include your name or other information. In addition, the Visby Services, including our devices, may be used to support clinical trials. Information collected through our Services as part of a clinical trial may be used by Visby for any of the above-listed purposes, or any purpose permissible under applicable law.
We may also use your information to contact you about our own and third parties’ goods and services that may be of interest to you. If you do not want us to use your information in this way, please email us at email@example.com to opt out.
