What Kind Of Information We Collect

  • When You Create A Migraine Buddy Account

If you want to access data collected by your Device, you must create a Migraine Buddy account. When you create a Migraine Buddy account, we ask for some personal information, including your email address and a password. Your email address will be used to log-into your account.

You can also create your Migraine Buddy account using a different credential such as a Facebook or Google account. We will ask permission to access basic information from that account, such as your name. You can stop sharing that information with us at any time by removing Migraine Buddy’s access to that account.

  • When You Add Information to Your Profile

You can customize your Migraine Buddy experience by adding other types of information to your account, such as: Name, Gender, Birthdate.

  • When Your Record Data
Full use of Migraine Buddy requires that you record information related to your migraines, such as your pain intensity, your pain location, your symptoms, your triggers, your medication, your reliefs, your menstruation, etc.
  • When You Sync Your Device

When you sync your Device through Migraine Buddy, data recorded on your Device about your activity is transferred from your Device to our servers. This data is stored and used to provide Services and is associated with your account. Each time a sync occurs, we log data about the transmission. Some examples of the log data are the sync time and date, device battery level, and the IP address used when syncing.

  • When You Contact Us For Help

Whenever you contact Migraine Buddy for help, we collect your email address along with additional information you provide in your request so that we can provide you with assistance and improve the Services. If you contact us when you are already logged in to your account, the web form automatically pre-fills this information, so you don’t have to type it manually. You can also contact Migraine Buddy on public forums such as Twitter or Facebook; however, we cannot maintain the privacy of your communication to us if you contact us through these channels.

  • When You Invite Buddies

You can invite your buddies who are already Migraine Buddy users or invite friends who have not yet joined. You can invite Buddies in several ways, such as by providing their email addresses, or by accessing social networking accounts or from the contact list on your phone. When you share your Buddies’ contact information with us to add them as a friend, we will only use it for this purpose. We do not store your phone’s contact list, and it is deleted immediately after it is used for this purpose.

  • When You Activate Location Features

The Services include features that require the collection of specific location data, including GPS signals, in order to detect weather parameters (humidity, pressure, temperature) which can trigger your migraines. We only collect this type of data when you activate a location feature. We stop collecting this type of data when you deactivate the feature. We store this information in your Migraine Buddy account.
