My Normative was founded by two feminist researchers whose thoughts on the ethics of data security were formed around the professional standards demanded of them as health researchers.
Your personal information is completely de-identified and can't be sold to third parties. Period.
The aim of this policy is to summarize what information we might collect from a registered user ("you"), and what we will and will not do with it. At My Normative we value our visitor's privacy. We consider your personal data and security to be of utmost importance. We are committed to radical transparency in all our data collection practices.
We have developed a separate cloud environment containing only de-identified information, strictly for our app's machine learning. De-identification processes occur before the data even gets to this cloud, so no individual's data could ever be tracked back to them. We don't ask for this information out of curiosity or profitability, but out of necessity—to provide you with the best experience, and to further our development in female health research for women and people who menstruate all around the world.
My Normative is a member of IBM's Hyper Protect Accelerator. Through this partnership, we are armed with their IBM Cloud Hyper Protect Services. This allows us to operate with the appropriate security and encryption solutions to ensure your data is gathered and stored securely.
We collect two types of information from you: i) information that you voluntarily provide to us (e.g. through a voluntary registration process, sign-ups or emails); and ii) information that is derived through automated tracking mechanisms.
