Our Site provides information about the Service and allows you to contact Jacoti. When you access the Site, Jacoti processes your personal data for the following purposes:
In order for the Service to be performed you have to install the Applications on your mobile device and permit the device to connect to the internet. The Applications will send information from the Applications to the servers used by Jacoti and will receive information back from these servers to optimise the audio experience provided by the Applications. If you are a user, you may authorise hearing experts to link to your web profile in order to optimise configuration of your Application. Authorised hearing experts also have to register to use the Applications which will allow them to access your data if you have given them your explicit consent.
You can also authorise Jacoti to access your Apple HealthKit via the Applications to check whether your HealthKit audiogram is up to date. If you grant us access, we will in particular:
In order to provide you with the Service via the Applications, we require your explicit consent to the processing of your personal data concerning health. We cannot offer you the Service without such explicit consent.
We collect personal data during the installation procedure of the Applications and your setting up/configuration of your web profile with Jacoti. We subsequently process (technical) information about your sense of hearing that is required to optimise personal hearing loss compensation, in order to provide you with the Service in general and to acquire knowledge to further improve and develop our Service. Using the Applications implies information sharing with Jacoti for the purpose of your web profile and identification as registered user. Furthermore, there are minimum requirements of data sharing required for the Applications to be activated and function.
We require processing a confirmed email address so as to allow our servers to recognise the installed Application owner uniquely in order to allow our Applications to run properly and to be able to communicate with you for the purpose of complaints and medical devices post marketing surveillance of our Applications.
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, more in particular, data collected from you with respect to the use of our Sites and Applications among others includes:
By installing and using the Applications you acknowledge that Jacoti can anonymise your personal data to the effect that it is no longer personally identifiable and to use that anonymised data for other purposes, including commercial purposes. Personal data from your Apple HealthKit will never be used for commercial purposes.
Finally, when you have agreed to receive our newsletters, alerts, and other tailored communications about the Service, [or when you are an existing customer and have not opted-out], your contact data (name, e-mail address) and any other personal data that you may provide us when providing your consent, will also be collected and processed for the purpose of these tailored communications.
Personal data collected by Jacoti may be further processed by Jacoti for scientific research purposes. The processing of your personal data for research purposes shall solely consist of the anonymisation of your personal data. This anonymised data shall then be used for scientific research conducted by Jacoti or a third party and for the publication of research results, including technical reports, conferences abstracts and presentations, white papers, journal articles.
Your data is processed and stored on servers in different locations in the European Union.
Jacoti may also transfer certain personal data outside of the European Economic Area to recipients located in third countries, including the United States of America. When Jacoti transfers personal data to recipients outside the European Economic Area to a country not offering adequate protection as established by the European Commission, the transfer shall be based on the Standard Contractual Clauses adopted by the European Commission or another mechanism allowing such a transfer of personal data.
The provision and processing of your personal data, including health data such as audiogram data and time of deafness, is necessary to successfully conclude the registration process and for the performance of the Service. Your refusal to provide your data for processing and your refusal to provide explicit consent for the processing of health data, means that the Service cannot be provided to you.
You have at all times the right to object to your personal data being used for direct marketing purposes.
Jacoti will only disclose personal data about its users, if any, to third party service providers:
Third party service providers who process personal data on behalf of Jacoti will be required to take appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect the security of that data, and to act only in accordance with the instructions of Jacoti in respect of the processing of such data.
Jacoti will export your audiograms from the Applications to your Apple HealthKit if you have consented to it.

Your personal data collected by Jacoti can be accessed, and used to assist you, by the hearing expert that you have visited and that you have given the right to do so after the expert sent you an invitation allowing you to link the expert to your web profile account. When you have linked your account to the expert concerned, and thereby have consented to the processing of your data by the expert, that expert has access to the web profile for your account.
We may be required to disclose personal or technical data to other parties and/or for other purposes (i) by law or pursuant to legal process; (ii) to enforcement or public authorities in response to a request from such authorities; or (iii) if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.
We keep your personal data for as long as we provide the Services to you. If you cease use of the Services, the audio related data that has been communicated to Jacoti remains part in anonymised form of the overall dataset that is used to improve the listening experience of other users going forward. Other users will not have access to data relating to individuals that have ceased use of Jacoti products and services.
Personal data may be kept after the end of the provision of the Services solely for research purposes. In this case, the personal data shall not be retained longer than necessary for these research purposes.
Jacoti has implemented appropriate technical and organisational measures to safeguard the personal data, which it processes, if any, against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access, and other unlawful forms of processing.
