Collection and Use of Personal Information:

Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact a single person.

You may be asked to provide your personal information anytime you are in contact using the CURIA App.

When CURIA is downloaded, the required information is transferred to the App Store, particularly the username, e-mail address, time of download and the individual device code. We do not influence this data collection and are not responsible for it. We only process the data to the extent necessary for downloading CURIA onto your mobile device.

Your provision of the information is entirely voluntary and is given to us with the sole purpose of receiving more accurate and relevant information from our app. We may share this personal information and use it consistent with this Privacy Policy. We may also combine it with other information to provide and improve our app, services, content, and advertising. You are not required to provide the personal information that we have requested, but, if you chose not to do so, in many cases we will not be able to provide you with our products or services or respond to any queries you may have.

Here are some examples of the types of personal information Innoplexus may collect and how we may use it:

What personal information we collect:

  • When you create an ID to register, download our app, download an app update, contact us or participate in an online survey, we may collect a variety of information, including your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, contact preferences, and credit card information.
  • We may gather your personal information like contact details, studies you want to register for, your location, questionnaire answers about genetic mutations, cancer-specific details like status etc. to provide you with information on clinical studies, possible therapy options or doctors.

How we use your personal information:

  • The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on Curia’s latest information on cancer and updates.
  • We also use personal information to help us create, develop, operate, deliver, and improve our app, services, content and advertising, and for loss prevention and anti-fraud purposes.
  • We may use your personal information, including date of birth, to verify identity, assist with the identification of users, and determine appropriate services.
  • From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about purchases and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with Innoplexus, you may not opt-out of receiving these communications.
  • We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve our products, services, and user communications.
  • If you enter into a sweepstake, contest, or similar promotion we may use the information you provide to administer those programs.
  • We may use your personal information to create aggregated and other anonymous data. We make personal information into encrypted, anonymous data by removing information that makes the data personally identifiable to you.
  • We may use your personal information in order to offer the various functions of CURIA and ensure the stability and security of CURIA and enable comfortable use of the functions.

Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information:

We also collect data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose.

  • We may collect information such as occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, referrer URL, location, and the time zone where Curia app is used so that we can better understand user behaviour and improve our products, services, and advertising.
  • We may collect information regarding user activities on our website, and from our products and services. This information is aggregated and used to help us provide more useful information to our users and to understand which parts of our website, products, and services are of most interest. Aggregated data is considered non-personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.
  • We may collect and store details of how you use our services, including search queries. This information may be used to improve the relevancy of results provided by our services. Except in limited instances to ensure the quality of our services over the Internet, such information will not be associated with your IP address.
  • With your explicit consent, we may collect data about how you use your device and applications in order to help app developers improve their apps.
  • With your informed consent, we collect information regarding comparable parameters to be used for our matching function which may include cancer indication, stage detail, hormone receptor, genetic markers, gender, age, specific health data based on the type of cancer, etc.
  • If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.

Cookies and Other Technologies:

The Curia app, online services, related websites, email messages, and advertisements may use “cookies” and other similar technologies. These technologies help us better understand user behaviour, tell us which parts of our websites people have visited, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches. We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non-personal information. However, to the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as personal information. Similarly, to the extent that non-personal information is combined with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

We also use cookies and other technologies to remember personal information when you use our website, online services, and applications. Our goal in these cases is to make your experience with Curia more convenient and personal.

Google may require you to provide additional permissions for the app to access the information connected to your account. If you want to disable cookies or deny permission, please contact us for more information about the same. However, please note that certain features of the app will not be available once permissions are denied.

As is true of most internet services, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit websites and applications, operating system, date/time stamp.

We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behaviour on the site, to improve our product and services, and to gather demographic information about our user base. Innoplexus may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.

Google Analytics and Google Firebase Services by Google INC.

We use Google Analytics and Google Firebase, both services provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA

  1. Analysis of the general use of CURIA, in particular, app installations / de-installations, questionnaires on the disease, activities in the search for treatment options and registrations for clinical studies, the beginning of a session and if a password is forgotten (Google Analytics)
  2. To collect diagnostic data to ensure the technical stability of the app (Google Firebase).
  3. Your IP address will be processed. We use the anonymization function of Google, whereby the IP address in the EU / EEA is shortened for anonymization purposes and transmitted in a shortened state to the Google server in the USA. We use the anonymized reports on the general use of CURIA that are created by Google and sent to us in order to continuously improve our service and to increase the user-friendliness of CURIA. The reports we receive do not contain any personal data. We process the information for the aforementioned purposes based on your previously given consent.
  4. The data is processed in the USA, whereby we have concluded so-called standard contractual clauses with Google, which guarantee an appropriate level of data protection.
  5. The data will be deleted when they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected because you have deactivated the option to collect and further process information on diagnosis and usage behaviour in the CURIA app.

Uninstalling will stop the active processing of your Personal data: 

30 months after uninstalling the app, the data will be deleted because it is no longer needed, provided we are not subject to any statutory retention requirements. We assume that the purpose ceases to exist after this period because we assume that it is no longer likely that you will use our services again afterwards. However, so that you have the opportunity to restore your profile for a shorter period, e.g. because you deleted the app earlier due to a technical issue, we will temporarily save the data for you.

Disclosure to Third Parties:

At times Curia may make certain personal information available to strategic partners that work with Curia to provide information, products and services, or that help us reach users. Personal information will only be shared by us to provide or improve our products, services and content; it will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes.

Others disclosures:

It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence − for Innoplexus to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.

We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.

Protection of Personal Information:

We take the security of your personal information very seriously. Our products protect your personal information during transit using encryption such as AES.

You are responsible for the personal information you choose to share or submit on any or all public forums. For example, if you list your name and email address in a forum posting, that information is public. Please take care when using these features.

While the Company shall seek to implement the best market practices and security policies for the protection of your personal information, it shall not be liable for improper use or disclosure, unauthorised modification and unlawful destruction or accidental loss of information.

Integrity and Retention of Personal Information:

We make it easy for you to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date. We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfil the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.

Storage of Information under the Data Vault Feature:

The Data Vault feature in our Curia App will allow users to upload, store and access their own personal information and medical data. This information will be stored adhering to the security standards at Innoplexus and will be accessible only to the user who is the owner of the information.

Innoplexus may collect information via questionnaires aimed at collecting information regarding pharmaceutical use, specific disease conditions etc. If you would like information on possible therapy options, doctors and clinical studies, you can fill out these questionnaires we have provided with questions about your clinical picture. Cancer-specific parameters are requested, such as information on genetic mutations, the status of respective cancer types, etc. Your information is voluntary and serves the sole purpose of enabling us to provide you with information. You are free at any time to revoke your consent without giving reasons with effect for the future. This does not affect the lawfulness of the data collection that has taken place up to that point.

We may decline to process requests that are frivolous/vexatious, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. Access, correction, or deletion requests can be made through the Privacy Contact.
