We, at Eycarrot are dedicated to maintaining both a high standard of privacy and a high standard of data protection in all of our activities. This policy is based on the standard required by the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). We welcome your comments and suggestions.
Personal information is information about an identifiable individual. This, however, does not include information which is anonymous, i.e., where the identifying data fields are removed. Personal health information is identifying information of a person's health matters including that person's substitute decision-maker, donation of body parts or bodily substance, physical and mental health, provision of health care (including the name of the individual who provides health care to the person). BinoviTM is not designed to be used by children under the age of 13, although parents may use BinoviTM in a caregiver capacity to connect with their children's Professionals. We do not intentionally collect personal information from children through BinoviTM nor communicate directly with children. If you believe that we may have collected Personal Information from someone under the age of 13, or communicated directly with them please contact us.
Please note in regards to minors: Our service is not designed to be used by children under the age of 13. For any minor who uses our service, a guardian is required to provide the consent for us to provide the service and for us to use any information of that minor.

All contractors and other third parties with whom we have a contractual arrangement and with whom we share personal data are contractually obligated to ensure that their practices meet our standards and are fully compliant with PIPEDA and other applicable privacy legislation.
This policy applies only to the Software and to our website (www.eycarrot.com). It does not cover the practices of other organizations or their websites, including those you may access through the links provided on our website or through the Software. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of all websites you visit, especially if you provide any personal information and/or personal health information.
Our primary business is to enable individuals and health care practitioners with IT solutions to test, measure, and enhance oculomotor sensory performance. Our mobile version enables you to share the test information and any other relevant information with your health care providers or any other third party with whom you decide to share your information through our mobile application (the "Software"). All personal information that you may provide to us is voluntary and you are, at not time, required or obliged to provide any information.
However, please note that for security purposes and to improve our Software as well as to determine user insight in to the use of our Software we may collect some information from your device which includes error reporting and general usage statistics and we may collect information about the device make/model/ID, OS version, app name, app version, and time stamps.
Further, personal information may be gathered from you and be used in the following situations:
Finally, regardless as to how and from whom we collected information, we will not sell nor share your personal information to any organization for any purpose unless you explicitly consent to it. All the personal information that you provide to us will, at all times, be your information and you will be, at all times, remain and be the custodian and controler of your personal information. We will never share your personal information with anyone unless you explicitly direct and authorize us to do so.
We, pursuant to the Purpose, do not require any of your personal information including your personal health information other than as set out above for security reasons. Therefore, any personal information and personal health information you share with us is completely voluntary.
Even after you have shared personal information with us you may withdraw consent for the further use of the personal information and personal health information at any time, by contacting our privacy office at email@example.com.
We collect personal information about you, from you, or from third parties you authorize us to collect such information from, only when you voluntarily provide it or authorize us to collect it. Typically, we will seek consent for the use or disclosure of your personal information at the time of collection.
We will not, as a condition of the provision of the service, require you to consent to the collection, use, or disclosure of information beyond that required to fulfill the explicitly specified and legitimate purposes for which the information is being provided and collected. The personal information we may collect in the course of you using, accessing, and/or receiving our Services may include, but is not limited to, the following:
We use your personal information to:
Your personal information and personal health information is only shared with third parties if you chose to do so by either sharing it directly with a Professional or by joinng a group. Therefore, once you have booked an appointment the relevant health care provider and his/her administrative and suppory staff will be able to see all of your information and results. In cases of you joining a group, the relevant teachers and trainers will be able to see all of the information of the group in general and each invidual member of the group.
Our business is to help you keep track of test results, make appointments, participate in online games/exercises, and to enable you to share that information with your health care providers or any other third party with whom you decide to share your information. We do not use personal information and personal health information for marketing purposes, and do not share or disclose personal information and personal health information with other parties unless specifically stated in this policy.
If you have not opted out of receiving marketing materials, we may also use (but will not disclose) your personal information to promote and market additional goods, services and special offers from us, including by means of direct marketing. You can choose not to allow us to use your personal information for direct marketing purposes by contacting us or by going to your account and selecting your communication preferences.
We may collect and disclose aggregated non-personal information and non-personal health information from all users of the Software relating to, for example, game scoring, test scores, age, geographic location, and gender. All such information will be stripped of all personal information so that it cannot be recompiled and individual users identified. We collect and aggregate this kind of information in order to determine how the Software is being used, how it and other products and services can be improved, and to share the aggregated information to third parties so that they can use the information for improvements of their own products and services such as pharmaceutical companies, medical research organizations, and occular researchers.
We will share aggregate data if We believes it is necessary to comply with legal process (such as a court order, subpoena, search warrant, etc.), or other legal requirements of any governmental authority; if We believe it would potentially mitigate Our liability in an actual or potential lawsuit; if We believe it is permitted by law or if doing so will not violate the law; or if We believe it is otherwise necessary to protect Our rights or property; or is necessary to protect the interests of other users of the Software. In the unlikely event that all or part of Our business is sold or acquired by a third party, We will transfer such information to the new business owner.
We reserve the right to disclose personal information to a third party if a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena, or court order legally requires or authorizes us to do so.
We also reserve the right to disclose or transfer personal information to a third party in the event of a proposed or actual purchase, sale (including a liquidation, realization, foreclosure or repossession), lease, merger, amalgamation or any other type of acquisition, disposal, transfer, conveyance or financing of all or any portion of our company or of any of the business or assets or shares of our company or a division thereof in order for you to continue to receive the same products and services from the third party.
If you think we have information about you that is not accurate, you are encouraged to contact us at the address provided in section 10 of this policy and indicate the necessary changes. We may require that you follow certain procedures that are utilized by us for the authentication and verification of your identity.
We retain information according to retention schedules, which depend on the purpose of the information and any legal or contractual requirements with which we might need to comply.
It is important that the information maintained by us on behalf of you is accurate, protected from interference by other parties, and treated in confidence by as few personnel as necessary. We maintain state of the art firewall and antivirus protection on our servers, train our staff, and hire only responsible and capable contractors to manage our systems. If you detect any anomalies that might lead you to believe there has been a security infraction or hacking of our system, we will be pleased to investigate.
Should you wish to access your own personal information, please write to our privacy office at firstname.lastname@example.org.. At the time of your request, we may need further information from you to verify your identity, before we can provide you with the personal information we hold.
