3. Sharing of Data
Temperature and humidity data collected from a DSI Sense device can be made anonymous by removing any related identifiers that link the data to you (e.g., street address, latitude and longitude, your name, etc.). Once the data is anonymous, then it is no longer considered to be personal information and can be shared with others. Anonymous data may be used to develop better skin-care algorithms, optimize advertisements, improve skin-care products, etc.
Our staff and contractor personnel can have access to personal information about you as part of their assignments regarding data storage, resolving user problems, etc. Individuals with access to personal data are not allowed to share it with unauthorized individuals.
