Privacy Policy

Updated and Effective as of: March 10, 2021

Sjogren’s Tracker LLC, its officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents, affiliates, and representatives ( collectively, the “Company,” “we,” ”us,” or “our”) value the privacy of our users. This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) explains the information collected through www.sjogrensdiary.com and www.sjogrenstracker.com (the “Websites”), Sjogren's Tracker (the “App”), and any content or services provided by us (collectively, the “Services”).

Our predominant goal in collecting user information is to analyze statistics related to Sjögren’s Syndrome (“Sjogren’s”) and usage of our Services. We aim to assist in better understanding how Sjogren’s and other chronic conditions affect the population, and to support research and raise awareness of chronic conditions for which there are no cures. Further, we hope to use the information collected to improve user experience and enhance algorithms to track and predict variables, such as flares and aggravators.

 

In compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR"), if you are located in an EU member state, you may contact us at contact@sjogrensdiary.com to request the deletion of your personal information from our servers.  Upon request, your account and its associated information will be deleted.

We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time, with or without prior notice.  We may do so by posting the updated Privacy Policy on our Services or by any other reasonable means.
