Destroke US Privacy Notice
Effective: January, 2023
Destroke, Inc. (Destroke) and each of its affiliates (collectively, “Destroke,” “we,” “us,” “our”) respect your privacy and are committed to protecting the personal data we hold about you. If you have questions, comments, or concerns about this Privacy Notice or our processing of personal data, please see the bottom of this Privacy Notice for information about how to contact us.
This Privacy Notice explains our practices with respect to personal data we collect and process about you. This includes information we collect through, or in association with, the Destroke application (the “App”), our website with a home page located at https://www.de-stroke.com (the “Website”), our products and services that we may offer from time to time via our website, our related social media sites, or otherwise through your interactions with us (the app, website, products, services, and social media pages, collectively, the “Services”).
The App educates individuals on performance of the National Institute of Health stroke scale, which is a bedside clinical assessment of signs of stroke (e.g. facial droop, numbness, trouble speaking, and weakness). The App is solely intended as an educational aid for stroke detection and not for medical decision-making or in the place of a medical professional. As such, if you reply to one of our marketing emails or otherwise send a communication to us, such communication does not create a doctor-patient relationship with us. Therefore, please do not send any information that you consider confidential unless you agree to its use as described in this Privacy Notice.
Please review the following to understand how we process and safeguard personal data about you. By using any of our Services, whether by visiting our website or otherwise, and/or by voluntarily providing personal data to us, you acknowledge that you have read and understand the practices contained in this Privacy Notice. This Privacy Notice may be revised from time to time, so please ensure that you check this Privacy Notice periodically to remain fully informed.
