To Communicate with You
Your Personal Information allows us to process your requests, purchases, transactions, and payments. It also allows us to provide you with support, to respond to your inquiries, to investigate and address your concerns and to monitor and improve our responses to you. We also use your Personal Information to provide targeted offers and ads through our Website, third-party sites, social media, and via email or text message (with your consent, where required by law).

Your Personal Information, including such elements as your username and password, enables us to secure your account with us and prevent transactional fraud. This includes maintaining the safety, security, and integrity of our Services, databases and other technology assets. We value your trust in providing us your Personal Information, thus we are striving to use commercially acceptable means of protecting it. But remember that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and reliable, and we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
For Research, Testing and Product Development
Information about your use of our Services, some of which is Personal Information, allows us to engage in testing, research, analysis, and product development, including to develop and improve our Website, Software, products, and Services.
To Comply with Our Legal Obligations
We use your Personal Information, as necessary, to comply with applicable laws and regulations. These may include, depending on where you reside or the information provided, the General Data Protection Regulations of the European Union and United Kingdom (“GDPR”), the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”)and FDA guidelines and regulatory requirements. We use your Personal Information consistently with those requirements and for the purpose of fulfilling them to the extent your Personal Information is necessary for their fulfillment.

How we Protect your Personal Information
Our information about you is stored initially on our servers, and longer term on “cloud” facilities provided by our business partners. Our services are located in the United States and designed to comply with industry standard guidelines for security. Those of our cloud service providers may be located in the United States or elsewhere. The laws of the United States or of other jurisdictions from which our business partners provide their services may not be as protective of your Personal Information as those of your jurisdiction. Our software development, testing, and review processes have also been established to meet FDA and other regulatory requirements, as applicable.
Our business partners may also store the information we provide them, or that they collect directly from you. We only engage business partners who agree to take reasonable steps to protect your information, but we cannot directly control their processes and procedures. For information about the steps they take we encourage you to consult their individual privacy policies, which you can find on the websites listed at https://help.apolloneuro.com/hc/en-us/articles/4406213840663.
Although we exercise commercially reasonable steps to protect your Personal information, our Services rely on public networks including the Internet and third-party service providers who operate those networks. These networks and services involve inherent security risks which are common to most Internet-based applications, but out of our control to prevent. You should consider these risks before using our Services.
Your Rights; Privacy Tools and Controls

Although the application of these laws is usually limited to Personal Information about residents of those jurisdictions, as a matter of policy and out of respect for your privacy, we offer you many of the rights available to residents of California, the UK and the EU, regardless of the jurisdiction in which you live. We reserve, however, the right to object to the application of any law beyond its particular jurisdiction. Also, the rights described below do not apply to information that has been anonymized, de-identified or aggregated consistently with the relevant laws. You may have additional rights depending on the place of your residence, and we will endeavor to comply with them to the extent required by the relevant law. We will not discriminate against you because of your exercise of these rights, but you should understand that our ability to provide Services to you may be compromised or rendered impossible by reason of your exercise of these rights.
Subject to these limitations we offer you the following rights with respect to your Personal Data:

You have the right to request that we delete any of your Personal Information, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive your request and confirm your identity (see below under the heading of “Exercising your Rights to Know or Delete”), we will review your request to see if an exception allowing us to retain the information applies. We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

Exercising your Rights to Opt-Out, Know or Delete
To exercise your rights to opt-out, know, or delete described above, please submit a request by either:
- Calling us at 1 (844) 218 - 2896.

- Visiting https://help.apolloneuro.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a request to opt-out, know or delete related to your personal information. To designate an authorized agent, you should follow the procedures required by the agent; we will then verify whether they are sufficient to meet our obligations under law.
You may only submit a request to know twice within a 12-month period. Your request to opt-out, know or delete must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative and describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We will confirm receipt of your request within ten (10) business days. If you do not receive confirmation within the 10-day timeframe, please contact Apollo Neuro Customer Service at 1 (844) 218 - 2896 or email@example.com.
We endeavor to substantively respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to another 45 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Like the technologies described above, these other technologies might store information on your computer or device or on our website or web server. The specific names and features may change as technology advances.
localStorage is a mechanism for storing small pieces of data on a user’s device in a similar manner to cookies, and is used for similar purposes such as keeping a user logged into the service.
