Privacy policy

Tä’s core activity is to provide users of the Tät® app with information, education and programs for pelvic floor muscle training and self-management of stress urinary incontinence.
Tä does not collect personal data in the Tät® app and is thus neither personal data processor, nor personal data sub-processor, for users of the Tät® app, and thus does not need a privacy policy in the matter of personal data according to the EU Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Tä uses privacy by design for software development. All data in the Tät® app is anonymized in a way that users cannot be identified. Tä removes all possibilities to identify a person, and there is no additional information that can link the information to users. The anonymization is made in order to use the data for statistical or research purposes. Anonymization means that you cannot reproduce the original information, and the data in the Tät® app is therefore not covered by the EU Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Data from anonymous questionnaires in the Tät® app with questions about age, sex, educational level, type of place of residence, pregnancy, incontinence symptoms and effects of treatment are collected and used for research purposes by the research group tä at Umeå University. The study is approved by the Regional Ethical Review Board in Umeå, Sweden.

Data from questionnaires is always anonymous and Tä does not have the means to trace this data to a specific person. Response to the questionnaires is voluntary and it is possible to use all the functions in the Tät® app without answering the questionnaires. The answers to the questionnaires are not stored in the Tät® app. The anonymized data is transferred to a secure database at Umeå University via SSL encryption.

Tä does not ask for and does not store any information about name, social security number, e-mail address, telephone number, IMEI code or IP address. The Tät® app does not support sharing information with other apps, systems, organizations or users.

Tä disclaims all responsibility for the personal data collection and management by Apple and Google at the actual download of the Tät® app via the App Store or Google Play. In that section, Tä refers to the privacy policy of Apple and Google.
