Privacy Policy

SANDSTONE PRIVACY POLICY
At Sandstone Diagnostics, we’re passionate about improving the health and well-being of men everywhere. Because we are dealing with personal and intimate issues, we take your privacy very seriously. Please read through our Privacy Policy carefully and don’t hesitate to contact us at info@sandstonedx.com with any questions or concerns.

Why should I bother reading this?

Most privacy policies are long, boring and use a lot of very complicated language that you scroll past. They’re also crucial to understanding your rights and how your information is shared. We want you to be able to understand what you’re agreeing to, and why maintaining your privacy is so important to us. This Privacy Policy is meant to describe the way we or our vendors protect, use and store your personal information. Capitalized terms used in this Privacy Policy that aren’t defined within this document will have definitions available in our Terms of Use.

Accepting the Policy

This Privacy Policy is our promise to you to keep your information safe, and functions as a contractual agreement between you and Sandstone. You accepted this policy when you agreed to our Terms of Use (which happened when you used our Trak App or one of our websites). If you don’t agree with our Privacy Policy or Terms of Use, do not use the Trak App, trakfertility.com, dontcookyourballs.com, sandstonediagnostics.com, or other websites, or any of our Services.

Changes to our Privacy Policy

From time to time, we may need to amend this Privacy Policy. Any changes to the Privacy Policy will become effective once we’ve posted a copy on our website or on our Trak App. You agree to these changes if you continue to use the Trak App or one of our websites. Don’t worry- we won’t make any material changes without expressly telling you about it through notice clearly posted on the sandstonediagnostics.com website. We can’t force you to read our new Privacy Policy, but you will be bound to any revisions to it, and it is your responsibility to read and understand the new terms of the Privacy Policy.

What we collect from you

You decide how much information you give us by:

When you use our Services you may submit a variety of information about yourself (gender, age, weight, health conditions, occupational hazards, etc.). You can also choose to give us access to certain personal information stored by third parties, including social media sites (like Facebook and Twitter). Information that we have access to varies by site and is controlled by your privacy setting on that site and your authorization.

Specific users (doctors, bloggers, etc.) may be able to submit other content, such as photos and other media. How much information you submit and what information you make public is entirely up to you. Sandstone has no responsibility for how people who view our content use that material, or who they can forward it to.

We like to keep in touch with our users, however you should be aware that we may use the information you include in your emails to assist in providing the Services and we may publish this information on an anonymous basis. Any posting on any of our Forums or other publicly accessible system we offer (including any market place or feedback) becomes the property of Sandstone and can be republished by us, using our discretion.

Besides the information you’ve given us directly or in connection with the Trak App or the tools on any of our websites, we don’t require you to give us “Personally Identifying Information” about yourself. When you use the Trak App or Website tools, we may record information regarding the use of the Trak App or Website tools.

We want to provide you with the best possible service and be able to make personal recommendations, as well as create internal reports. That’s why we collect aggregate information about the use of our Services. These include the following information about users accessing the Website or using the Trak App:

We may also store information based on your usage history, which includes:

And speaking of cookies…

A “cookie” is more than just a delicious baked good. It’s also a small text file recorded on your hard drive or smartphone that identifies you as a user and contains certain information about your use of the Services. Our Services may send cookies to your computer or smartphone when you access one of the Websites or Trak App. Cookies are used when you interact with the Services that we may offer to our partners, such as advertising services or Website features that may appear on other sites and in any other manner that Sandstone deems necessary for our business. We may use cookies to improve the quality of our Services, make recommendations and make the Services easier to use.

How we use your information

We don’t sell or rent your personal information to third parties. We don’t share your information to social networks or other public or semi-public places unless instructed by you to do so. Seriously. We just think it’s the wrong thing to do.

We only share your information with third parties in an aggregate and anonymous format, combined with information we collected from other users. We also share your personal information with employees, affiliates, vendors, partners and third parties only when it’s required to continue running our Services. This includes processing transactions, as well as responding to court orders and legal investigations and complying with audits or other investigations. We may access, preserve, or disclose any information we may have about you and the contents of your account if we’re required to do so by law or believe that providing this information is necessary to avoid liability, to comply with legal process or to protect our rights and property, or that of the public or our affiliates. We aren’t required to question the validity of any search warrant, subpoena, or other similar governmental request that we receive.

We may also use your personal information to tell you about products and services that may interest you, as well as sharing your information for joint marketing purposes with other companies.

Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee the security of your private transmissions against unauthorized or unlawful interception or access by third parties. But we can write mean things about them.

For our specific users (such as doctors and bloggers), your profile will be made available to other users consistent with this Privacy Policy. We have access to your user name and any recipient of the messages that you send through our Services. We may also use your name, email address and other information on our system to notify you about new product releases, service notifications, and to ask for your feedback/input. If we decide to allow you to submit other information about yourself, that information will only be available to other users as described in the Privacy Policy.

We also use non-personally identifiable information” and certain technical information about your computer and/or smartphone and your access of the Website tools or Trak App (including your internet protocol address) in order to operate, maintain, and manage the app and website. We may disclose that kind of information to our partners in order to maintain operations of our Services, to keep you updated about our Services, to give you promotional information regarding our Services, and to make sure your experience with our Services is the best that it can be.

Because science is cool: Sandstone’s scientific research

At Sandstone, we’re looking to revolutionize male reproductive health. We and our research partners, (including academics, reproductive health specialists, or medical facilities) may use your aggregate data from the services to conduct and/or publish this research. We may use these findings for scientific and/or medical abstracts, journals, oral presentations, poster presentations, journalism, in the Trak App, or internal usage to improve user experience.

Personal information should stay personal

We require third-party medical facilities and research groups with whom we share Aggregate Information to agree that they won’t attempt to make this information personally identifiable. Any information we share will be anonymous and won’t be associated with your name or any other personally identifying information. When you accept Sandstone’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Use, you give consent to third-party medical facilities and research groups to use the data provided through the Services. We want to make sure your private information stays private, so we ensure to the best of our abilities not to disclose any personal identification with the data we release.

If you send messages or post material containing personal information to specific users (such as doctors or bloggers), that information may be collected and used by others.

For our specific users (such as doctors and bloggers), you can choose to edit your profile and other information at any time through the website. You can choose to end your usage of our Services at any time. We will remove your profile and other personal information from view. However, we may keep information about you that is on our system following your termination of our Services.

Children’s privacy

Our Services are not intended for children under the age of 18. We will not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information with our Services from any users in this age group. However, we may collect information about children and babies from the parents who are using our Services. The parent/guardian assumes full responsibility for the use and interpretation of any information or suggestions provided through our Services for the minor. We ask that you don’t provide information regarding minors that you do not have guardianship over, without first getting the consent of the parent/guardian.

Transfer of information

In the event of a transfer of ownership of Sandstone or acquisition of Sandstone’s assets related to the business that collected such information, we reserve the right to transfer your personal and non-personally identifiable information . This means that if the majority of the company is acquired by or merged with another company, the new company will have access to this information.

Use of other sites

Our Services may contain links to or be hosted by other websites. These sites may have their own privacy policies. We have no control over these sites and are not responsible for their privacy policies, but we strongly encourage you to review those sites for their own privacy policies.

Security

Protecting your personal information is a top priority to us. That’s why we use industry standard security measures to keep your personal information away from unauthorized parties. We use electronic and procedural safeguards to process your information, and only authorize access of personal information to our employees who require it to fulfill their job responsibilities.
