How we use your data

We use your data to personalise your experience when you use our Services. We also use your data to improve the safety and security of the Services we provide, and for the purpose of analytics, marketing and communications.


Contract performance. This covers data that is processed by us in order to provide you with Services that you have requested.

Consent. Where you have consented to our use of your personal data, including health data.

Legitimate interests. This covers data processed by us for the purposes that can be reasonably expected within the context of your use of our Services to pursue our legitimate interests, in order to improve our Services and your experience, for general social benefits to enable free access to health information, for marketing our Services, exploring business opportunities and to enable us to offer a safe and secure service.


We use your data to understand your health so that we can provide relevant information personalised to your needs. You can personalise your experience by adding health data into your profile, completing assessments, or using other services we offer. We will use this data to personalise Services such as the symptom checker, and to recommend health plans, track your symptoms, assess your health, and display articles of interest to you.

APPS for users who create a profile. Legal basis: contract performance and consent for processing health data. Data collected: as stated in ‘The data we collect’ section of this Policy.

Symptom Checker (or chatbot). We use your data so the chatbot can calculate the most likely condition based on your reported symptoms. We might use the symptom checker's results to show you care options (relevant OneStop Health™ providers in your location), or to offer follow-up notifications for relevant conditions, symptom tracking, Health Plans, and receive articles about specific topics. If you use the symptom checker on behalf of someone else the collected data is used only for that specific consultation.

Health A-Z. You can search the Health A-Z and save your preferred articles. Some articles include a When to Worry feature, which helps you assess the need to visit a health professional. We might show you OneStop Health™ providers based on your Health A-Z search. For example, if you read an article about asthma, we will direct you to a OneStop Health™ provider that offers services for this condition. All the articles you will view will be stored in My Journal.

Health Journal with My Journal functionality. My Journal can store data about your wellbeing so you can track your symptoms over time (Trackers), access your pas consultations (Reports) and articles you have viewed (Articles). Consultations for third parties are not stored as reports, but we do save a record in our Technical Information logs. My Journal data will not be used in the symptom checker’s calculation.

Your Profile. We do not create third-party profiles. You can decide to create a profile for yourself or use our Services without one. We use your in-app Profile data to allow you to use our Services and personalise your experience. You cannot create a profile for an additional user.

Manage Trackers. You can track your symptoms over time and sync with your health and fitness apps data to get useful insights relevant for your health. This data will not be used in the symptom checker's calculation.

Health Background. You can share your health background with us by selecting one or more conditions from the list (for example, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, chronic kidney disease, diabetes, asthma, etc). This data will be used for the symptom checker.

Backup Your Profile. By signing in with your email/Google/Facebook account you give us permission to access and use your name and email address as outlined in this Policy. We use this data to enable you to access Your Profile from other devices. We recommend you sign out each time you leave the App so that your health data will be accessible only upon signing in.

Self-assessments. Health data provided while completing self-assessments and your subjective scores will not be used for the symptom checker's calculation.

Notes. You can add your own data via the notes section. We don’t use this data for other features of our App, such as Symptom Checker.

Push Notifications. We will send you push notifications based on the health data you provide when you use our Services. For example, we will use a consultation outcome to send you follow-up notifications for relevant conditions and to recommend that you track your symptoms for a period of time to see how they change. We will ask you if you are feeling any better and provide information relevant to your response. We will send you notifications to display articles based on your Health A-Z search and/or our OneStop Health™ providers available in your local area. We will also use your personal details - age, gender, and acquisition channel - to send push notifications related to these characteristics. For example, we will send you an article we think may be of interest to users in a certain age group. By enabling notifications, you will personalise your experience.

Health Plans. The data collected from answers given to questions asked in assessments can be used to provide you with the Personalised Health Plan. We will send you daily reminders for symptom tracking and bi-weekly notifications about health tips on how to improve your wellbeing.

OneStop Health™ Marketplace. Our OneStop Health™ marketplace consists of providers (OneStop Health™ providers) verified by our medical team that supply specific services, treatments and products to help with medical or health-related problems. Based on your reported symptoms, we use the information calculated by the chatbot to show you OneStop Health™ providers which might be useful to you (care options). If you click on the link of a OneStop Health™ provider you will leave the app and be redirected to that provider's service. In doing so, the way in which your data is processed will be determined by that provider's privacy policy. We create a local database on the device so we know if you have clicked on any providers. We will not disclose or share your data with any OneStop Health™providers.

We use the data we collect from you to present you with OneStop Health™ services in your local area which might be useful (for example, providers available in your country of residence or providers for a specific condition). For this service to be free, we need to track which users click on or see links to the providers. We use this data for analytics and billing purposes. When you click the link of a OneStop Health™ provider, you will be directed to their website and that provider will receive your IP address.

Data collected by OneStop Health™ providers may include personal information, but this is governed by their own privacy practices. The providers and other third-party websites or services may place cookies or other files on your computing or smart device, collect information or solicit personal information from you. We encourage you to be aware of the privacy practices of any third-party providers you interact with. We are not responsible or liable for your interaction with third-parties, the information requests initiated by them, or the subsequent use, treatment or dissemination of information you voluntarily choose to provide to them.

Nearby pharmacies and hospitals (Find Services Near You). By accepting the location permission, you will be able to find services near you. This feature enables us to collect the longitude and latitude of your mobile device so that we can find services near you. We will only process your geolocation data when you use 'Find Places Nearby', and we won't store this data as we are using Google APIs.

Google Optimise is used with GAF data to quickly and easily identify areas of our App which require improvement. We use this service to provide A/B tests, and to see which flow or design works best from a user perspective. We do this by splitting users into test or control groups to see which performs best. Visit Google Optimise for more information.

AWS Analytics does not access or use your data for any purpose other than to provide services to us, as legally required, and to maintain AWS services. Strong encryption of your data is in place. You can refer to the AWS Privacy Notice for more information. Please note, AWS Analytics is only used in our iOS App.

Google Analytics (GA) is usedon our Site and Web App. When you visit the Web App or our Site, your web browser automatically sends your IP address and information on how you use the Service to GA. Processing is based on a GA-created browser ID by using cookies. GA uses IP addresses to provide and protect the security of the service, and for us to know the country you use our Services in. GA anonymises the IP address before any storage or processing takes place by obfuscating the last few digits. Please refer to the IP Anonymisation in Analytics. GA processes the data based on a GA identifier called Client ID, which is stored in a cookie. Identifiers such as cookies and GA user IDs measure and report statistics about your interactions on our Site and/or Web App. GA stores cookies on your device to keep track of how you use our Site/Web App statistics without personally identifying you. We use the data collected by GA to improve the quality of our Site and Web App and to analyse Site/Web App usage. For more information, please read How Google uses cookies.

Facebook Pixel is an analytics tool that allows us to measure the effectiveness of our advertising by understanding the actions you take on our Site. We have placed a pixel code on the header of our Site so that when you visit our Site and take an action (such as clicking on the Web App), the Facebook pixel is triggered and reports this action. We then know when you take an action and will be able to reach you again in future through targeted Facebook ads. With Facebook Pixel we relay conversions back to Facebook which enables retargeting. For more information, please read the Facebook Data Policy and visit The Facebook pixel.


If you decide to participate in User Tests, this will be performed via UserTesting platform (UserTesting).

Storing, security and data transfers

We follow generally accepted industry standards and internal procedures to protect information submitted to us.


We store identifiable personal data and health data in separate databases. This meansthat whatever you enter or do in our App, it is not connected to data that could personally identify you. We normally process your data with the help of identifiers, namely profile ID, consultation/ conversation ID and analytic identifiers to avoid personal identification. In limited cases when required for user safety or critical systems issues, authorised personnel can access personal data along with Health Data. Your IP address is used to determine location, but it is normally masked (hashed) when stored on our backend.

We store your information for as long as needed to provide our Service. We may store the information longer, but only in a way that it cannot be tracked back to you. We use AWS and Google Cloud Platform for storing of information.

AWS. AWS has multiple security certificates https://aws.amazon.com/security/.The data we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside and inside of the European Economic Area (EEA), namely the AWS regions in the US and EU. It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us, or for one of our Providers. Your data will still be safe - we have entered into the AWS data processing addendum to make sure your personal information (IP address) is safe, namely:

a) that the AWS will use the data only to provide its storing services

b) that it will not disclose data to any third-party

c) that the AWS restricts its personnel to process your data without their authorisation

d) that we stay in control of correcting, blocking, deleting, retrieving your data

e) that AWS is responsible for implementing and maintaining the technical and organisational measures

f) that AWS is certified under ISO 27001 and agrees to maintain an information security program for the service that complies with the ISO 27001 standards or such other alternative standards as are substantially equivalent to ISO 27001 for the establishment, implementation, control, and improvement of the AWS Security Standards

g) that AWS may use subcontractors, but will restrict their access only for the purposes of offering AWS services. By using and downloading our Services, you agree to the transfer, storing and processing, as stated herein. We will take all the reasonably necessary steps to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Site; any transmission is at your own risk.

Google Cloud Platform. We store all analytical data on Google Cloud Platform (GCP). We control the stored data while Google is the processor. This means that Google processes the data only for the purposes of providing GCP services and technical support to us, in accordance with data processing and security terms https://cloud.google.com/terms/data-processing-terms. We control what happens to the data and can access it at any time. We have chosen to store the data in the US. Google stores data in a multi-tenant environment on Google-owned servers. The data and file system architecture are replicated in multiple geographically dispersed data centres. Google also logically isolates stored data. We have control over specific data sharing policies. Those policies, in accordance with the functionality of the Services, enable us to determine the product sharing settings applicable to this privacy policy. We may choose to make use of certain logging capability that Google may make available via the services. Google complies with legal frameworks relating to the transfer of data such as EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield. Get more information on Google Cloud Platform and the terms: https://cloud.google.com/product-terms.

Firebase Hosting. We use Firebase Hosting for our Site. Firebase Hosting is a production-grade web content hosting for developers. Zero-configuration SSL is built into Firebase Hosting, so content is always delivered securely. Please refer to the Firebase Data Processing and Security Terms for more information.


To guarantee your privacy, we securely encrypt, limit, and restrict access to your personal details.

We encrypt all your data at rest and any directly identifiable personal information is double encrypted with two keys at both the infrastructure and application level. We have restricted access to production environments and monitoring of your activities. The information is encrypted and key protected, and we have integrated commercially reasonable efforts to make sure your information remains secure when processed by us. However, please be aware that no security measures are impenetrable. If you have any concerns about the security of our Services, please contact us at privacy@your.md.

To ensure security of processing we engage third-party providers for penetration testing (security testing) - a controlled form of hacking in which a professional tester, working on behalf of an organisation, uses the same techniques as a criminal hacker to search for vulnerabilities in the company's networks or applications. During security testing, the third-party provider may have access to your personally identifiable data. Security testing providers are contractually bound to take all necessary technical and organisational measures to protect data, and they are not allowed to transfer it to third-parties or use it for any other purpose besides security testing for us.

We store your personally identifiable data for the duration of the provision of our Services or up to 30 days after your deletion request. This section shall not prevent any technical storage or access to information for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication, or as strictly necessary for us to provide the Services you requested.
