Deeply takes issues of privacy and the protection not only of personal health information, but all kinds of information about your private life very seriously. As discussed below we take great efforts to protect your information from disclosure, to use your information only to provide services to you, to improve the service for you, to improve our ability to provide services to other people in a similar situation, and to assist researchers in finding better ways to improve health.
We only disclose your information to you or as you authorize us to (although we may include certain elements of that information in our data base on an anonymized basis). However, we wish to remind you that the kind of information Deeply collects is significantly more sensitive than the information you may be providing to other application providers – and you should be extra careful before instructing us to share that information with anyone else. Your menstrual cycles, fertility information and pregnancy status are much more sensitive than the number of steps you took today or where you were when you took your most recent selfie – we recognize that and recommend that you take extra care before deciding to ask us to share it with anyone.
Note that not all Deeply account types and features are available in all locations, so some of the examples below may not apply where you live.
Information You Give Us:
Deeply gives you a number of options regarding what information you will give us:
When you register with Deeply you will submit a variety of personal data (such as gender, age, birthdate, name, email address, mobile phone number) and as you use the Deeply Apps you may submit a variety of information (such as menstrual cycle, weight, temperature, occupation, hobbies, interests, zip code, etc.) which may include sensitive personal data about personal health issues and/or information related to your past, present, or future physical or mental health condition (“Sensitive Personal Data”). In addition, in order to use cry analysis service, you will submit home and baby sound data, and baby information (name, date of birth, gender, nationality, language) of the service target. The information we have access to varies by site and is controlled by your privacy settings on that site and your authorization.
Also, when you sign up for Deeply Paid service, we may collect personal data such as credit card numbers and/or cell phone numbers, as well as other information about you necessary to ensure that a transaction is properly authorized, such as your address, zip code, and cv number (collectively, “Payment Information”). We also may retain such Payment Information (or our third party “fulfillment house”, such as Stripe, may retain such information) to facilitate future transactions. See “Controlling Your Personal Data” below if you would like us not to use that information to assist you in completing future transactions.
If you choose to participate in Deeply Paid service not only may you need to provide us with Payment Information, but if you become entitled to receive a payment from Deeply Paid Service, you will need to provide us with your social security number as well as information about an accredited infertility clinic and proof of medical claims showing that you are using their services. We may use that information in making filings with the IRS or relevant state taxing authorities.
In addition to information about yourself, it may be possible for you to submit other content ("Content"), such as photos and other media, each of which you present through technology available through the Services, including but not limited to our forum. It is entirely up to you whether you want to submit this additional information, and whether you would like to make it available to others – although information you share on the forum will automatically be shared with others, including users of the Services and others on the internet. However, Deeply has no responsibility for how people you allow to view your Content (or the public if you make any information available to the public or post on the forum) use that material, or to whom they may forward it. We urge you to be very careful when deciding to disclose your personal data, or any other information, on the forum. Such personal data and other information will not be private or confidential once it is published on the forum.
If you send or disclose any Sensitive Personal Data to us when you submit user generated content on our forum, you consent to our processing and use of such Sensitive Personal Data in accordance with this Policy. If you do not consent to our processing and use of such Sensitive Personal Data, you must not submit such user generated content to our Website.”
In each case, we will collect and record the information you have provided.
If you visit this Website, be advised that Company will maintain web logs to record data about all visitors and customers who use this website and interact with the Services and we will store this information. All web logs are stored securely and are accessible to a very limited number of employees who are required to adhere to strict guidelines regarding user data security and privacy.
Furthermore, when you use one of the Deeply Apps, we may record information regarding the use of that Deeply App, including your cell phone number, and if such facilities are enabled on your cell phone, your location and similar information.
Finally, in order to provide the best possible service and to allow us to make certain internal reports and make recommendations, we collect aggregate information about the use of the Service, including information about users accessing this website or using the Deeply Apps, such as Internet protocol addresses, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, other browser history, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time (“Activity Information”). We use Google Analytics for aggregated, anonymized website traffic analysis. In order to track your session usage, Google drops a cookie (_ga) with a randomly-generated ClientID in your browser. This ID is anonymized and contains no identifiable information like email, phone number, name, etc. We also send Google your IP Address. We use GA to track aggregated website behavior, such as what pages you looked at, for how long, and so on. This information is important to us for improving the user experience and determining site effectiveness. If you would like to access what browsing information we have - or ask us to delete any GA data - please delete your _ga cookies, reach out to us via this form, and/or install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-On.
When you visit the Services, we may also store information based on your usage history. This includes, but is not limited to, details of your transactions, content you viewed, click stream information, and cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your account. We use various technologies to collect and store information which may include sending one or more cookies or anonymous identifiers to your device. Please refer to the section on cookies below.
We may use personal data to verify your identity, verify your address, or manage risk. We may also use personal data to perform and improve our Services, contact you, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for medical research. For example, we may use information to provide customer service and support, process transactions, resolve disputes, collect payments, prevent illegal activities, customize the Services and recommendations, reduce risk to all parties involved in our transactions, and verify the accuracy of information.
WE DO NOT SELL OR RENT YOUR PERSONAL DATA TO THIRD PARTIES. WE DON’T SHARE YOUR INFORMATION (OTHER THAN FORUM POSTS) TO SOCIAL NETWORKS OR OTHER PUBLIC OR SEMI-PUBLIC PLACES UNLESS INSTRUCTED BY YOU TO DO SO. However, we may share your personal information with third parties and an aggregate and anonymous format combined with the information we collect from other users for research and/or academic purposes only. We may share your personal information as necessary for Deeply to provide you Services, and possibly to tell you about products and services of interest to you to fulfill your service request; to third-party fulfillment houses, customer support, billing and credit verification services, and the like; to comply with tax and other applicable law. You should also note that deeply does not guarantee the security of any of your private transmissions against unauthorized or unlawful interception or access by third parties.
We make your profile available to other users according to the privacy settings you set for yourself as part of your profile. Your user name will be identified to us and to any recipient of messages you send through the Services, including on forums. We also use your name, email address and other information on our system to notify you of new product releases, service notifications, and to solicit your feedback and input. In the event that we decide to allow you to submit other information about yourself, the availability of that information to other users will also be controlled by privacy settings you may set for yourself.
We share your personal data with employees and affiliates, as well as certain vendors, partners and third parties as required to offer the Services. This includes, but is not limited to, processing transactions, maintaining your account, responding to court orders and legal investigations, for litigation purposes, complying with audits or other investigations, and reporting to credit bureaus. We do not profit from your personal information and do not share your information with advertisers.
We may combine your personal data with information we collect from other companies and use it to improve and personalize the Services, content, and communications with you. We may also do so in order to improve our prediction methodologies and algorithms.
We maintain “protected health information” (as defined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, “HIPAA”) in compliance with applicable health care privacy and security rules and our contractual obligations with our business partners and customers, including health care providers and their contractors (who are also subject to HIPAA). In the case where your healthcare provider uses certain Deeply features and you establish an account with us to allow such usage, we act as a conduit between (a) health care providers offering fertility-related services, (b) other persons involved in the arranging, provision or financing of health care services and (c) end users such as you, and share your protected health information in connection with those services only in accordance with applicable law.
We may use personal data to deliver products, or service update notices, and promotional offers based on your communication preferences. With your consent (either in response to an email request or in certain cases, pursuant to the preferences you’ve expressed in your profile), we may send you marketing e-mails about upcoming promotions, and other news, including information about products and services that may be of interest to you. You may opt-out of receiving such information at any time: such marketing emails tell you how to “opt-out.” Please note, even if you opt out of receiving marketing emails, we may still send you non-marketing emails. Non-marketing emails include emails about your account with us (if you have one) and our business dealings with you. We may combine your information (after it has been anonymized) with information we collect from other companies and use it to improve and personalize the Services, content and advertising. We may also do so in order to improve our prediction methodologies and algorithms.
We will share your information with any party when required by law or by a government request to do so or to combat fraud or criminal activity.
The Service may automatically collect usage, analytics, viewing, logs, metrics and other device and technical data when you access our Service as an end user. For example, when you access our websites or log into the Deeply Service, our servers will automatically record certain information about your device and browser, and we may collect usage, clickstream, event data, crash data, and other technical data. We, our advertising partners and our service providers may also use technologies such as cookies, beacons, tags, Local Storage Objects (LSOs) and scripts to collect this information.
The Services may contain links to other web sites, and content in the Deeply Apps may be hosted by other web sites. These other sites maintain their own policies regarding cookies and the collection and use of personal data. It is up to you to review those policies yourself.
We use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect personal data within our organization. If you have any questions regarding which measures and techniques we use, feel free to contact us. Unfortunately, no transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be completely secure, and transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure.

We may use, or disclose the personal information we collect for one or more of the following business purposes:
We may disclose your personal information to a third party for a business purpose or sell your personal information, subject to your right to opt-out of those sales. When we disclose personal information for a business purpose, we enter a contract that describes the purpose and requires the recipient to both keep that personal information confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the contract. The CCPA prohibits third parties who purchase the personal information we hold from reselling it unless you have received explicit notice and an opportunity to opt-out of further sales.
