PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT
The Apple App and Google Play stores collect user information associated with the purchase of the Nanolume application; however, these app stores may provide Nanolume with minimal location information, such as a list of the states and countries of those who purchased the Nanolume application from the store. We may also collect information that is minimal to perform processes that occur in connection with our business. We collect and process the following categories of Personal Information:
- Contact information that you expressly provide to Nanolume, such as via communications with us, such as your name, mailing address, physical address, telephone, and email address.
- Demographic information, such as your country.
- IP Information, including information regarding your electronic device(s) and IP address.
- Internet use information.
- Regulatory information (to satisfy regulatory obligations such as any reporting obligations).
- Communications content, such as any messages you send to us, such as feedback and questions to customer support, the information you publicly post on our websites or other websites (such as product reviews, blog comments, or comments on Apple App Store or the Google Play Store), email messages, and other interactions with us.
PLEASE NOTE: NANOLUME DOES NOT HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR PERSONAL DATA STORED IN YOUR MOBILE DEVICE AND DOES NOT OBTAIN OR MAKE A COPY OR OTHERWISE BACK IT UP. ADDITIONALLY, NANOLUME IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ERASED, LOST, OR STOLEN DATA, INCLUDING PERSONAL DATA, WHETHER OR NOT CAUSED BY A MALFUNCTION OF THE NANOLUME MOBILE APPLICATION, USER ERROR, A NETWORK OR DEVICE BREACH, OR ANY OTHER CAUSE.
The Nanolume mobile application does allow you to create a “screen capture” or “screen photo” of some of your Personal Data, which you may upload to a third-party service, such as iCloud, or via the Apple Photos feature. Some mobile applications may also allow you to email or communicate a Comma Separated Values (CSV) file of some of the numeric data stored in the Nanolume mobile applications. Some Nanolume mobile applications may allow you to electronically send a PDF file containing your Personal Data (charts, personal notes, and a summary of your pain maps). You can share your data only if you manually (intentionally) choose to share it (by email or other means). It is your responsibility to control: where your data goes, your device settings, and any possible distribution of this data.

However, no electronic data transmission can be guaranteed to be secure from access by unintended recipients. Nanolume will not be responsible for any breach of security unless this breach is due to its negligence.

In transacting business with us through our website, you assume the risk inherent in transacting business online.
RETENTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We keep your information for as long as necessary in accordance with the purposes for which it was collected, our business needs, and our legal and regulatory obligations.

Nanolume reserves the right to retain usage data relating to our products and services, as well as data that has been anonymized and/or aggregated to the extent permitted by applicable laws. With respect to any Personal Information collected by us for our own internal purposes, we will retain that data for a reasonable time in order to fulfill those purposes.
We regularly review our retention policy to ensure compliance with our obligations under data protection laws and other regulatory requirements.
