INFORMATION ABOUT SPECIFIC PROCESSING OPERATIONS
Subject to Your Rights & Choices, we may process any Identity Data, Contact Data, Transaction Data, Payment Data, Device/Network Data, and User Content in connection to analyze how users interact with our Services, in connection with market research, for product and Service improvements, and as necessary to monitor and maintain the integrity and security of our Service and the data we process.
We will collect and aggregate your personal data and information about your use of the Services in order to identify certain trends in how our Services are used, healthcare trends, treatment outcomes, etc. (“Aggregated Data”). We may pass Aggregated Data to the third parties referred to in the section below, such as partners, to give them a better understanding of our business and improve the marketability or performance of our Services. Aggregated Data will not contain information from which you may be personally identified.
Acne, and many other skin conditions, are sensitive to a wide range of environmental, personal, and other factors. In order to understand patterns in conditions and treatment outcomes, and to improve our diagnostics and treatment proposals, we aggregate and analyze information we collect from Clear Connection, and if you submit a response to any surveys through our platform. For example, we may process Health Data, Preferences Data, and Biometric Data to determine trends in causes of acne, various symptoms, remedies, and similar information. We may use this information in order to create, train, or refine algorithms and other tools we use in connection with Automated Processing. When we process Health Data and Biometric Data for this purpose, we do so subject to your consent where required by law, and at all times subject to Your Rights & Choices.
We may use software, machine learning, AI, and other automation tools integrated into Clear Connection as part of our diagnostic and treatment systems. For example, we may use tools that help us suggest treatment regimens based on records of common symptoms and treatment outcomes, or based on automated analysis of images based on the type of skin conditions and symptoms that appear in the photo. The automated analysis performed as part of Clear Connection requires the processing of Biometric Data, Preferences Data, and Health Data. This automated system is designed to identify and improve your treatment and diagnosis, and your suggested treatment or outcomes may be determined directly or indirectly by this automated system. When we process Health Data and Biometric Data using automated means, we do so subject to your consent where required by law, and at all times subject to Your Rights & Choices.
We, and certain third parties operating on or through our Corporate Site, may engage in online behavioral advertising. This form of advertising includes various parties and service providers, including third party data controllers, engaged in the processing of personal data in connection with advertising. This form of advertising uses Device/Network Data, Preferences Data, and at times, Contact Data in order to deliver more relevant advertising to you. The parties that control the processing of Personal Data for behavioral advertising purposes may build a profile of you containing this information, and may be able to identify you across sites, devices, and over time.
These services may also track whether you view, interact with, or how often you have seen an ad, or whether you complete a purchase for a good or services you were shown in an advertisement. In some cases, these parties may also develop and assess aspects of a profile about you to determine whether you are a type of person to which a company wants to advertise , and determine whether and how ads you see are effective, and these third parties may augment your profile with information derived from these observations. See Your Rights & Choices for information about how you can limit or opt out of this processing.
