1.1. The University of Gothenburg (“we” or “us”) is the controller of the processing of your personal data in connection with the provision of our services on Prius Health.
2. WHAT PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND HOW WE MAY USE IT
2.1. When creating an account
In order to create an account, you need to provide your e-mail address and choose a user name and password. You do not need to use your real name as your user name. We need to process your e-mail address, user name and password in order to provide the services on Prius Health to you (fulfil our contract with you). Your user name and e- mail address will only be visible to you and not to other users.
In order to create an account, you also need to enter a registration code. The registration code is given to you by your employer, union or other organisation you are associated with, that we have a partnership with (hereinafter referred to as “Partner”). Each Partner is associated with, and has been given, a Partner unique registration code. We process the registration code when you create your account in order for us to pursue our legitimate interest in validating that you are associated with one of our Partners. We generate anonymised statistics on the number of new accounts created and what Partner registration code was used, in order for us to pursue our legitimate interest in understanding how big the interest is for our website amongst different Partner user groups and assess the effectiveness of communication about Prius Health.
The registration code will remain linked to your account after registration (see exception concerning sensitive Partner registration codes), and will be used by us to generate anonymous user statistics as described in section 5. If we believe that the Partner registration code you use reveals sensitive data about you, such as if it reveals a special category of personal data like union membership or if we believe that association with a certain Partner is particularly sensitive for other reasons, we will request your consent for continued registration code association and your account will only remain associated with the registration code if you have given your explicit consent. If you do not give your consent, your account will be associated with a generic code that does not reveal which Partner registration code you used when registering. If you give your consent, you may withdraw your consent any time by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you create an account, you are required to select country and language. We use the country setting when we publish or distribute information that is relevant to users in a specific country, as it is in our legitimate interest to limit the provision of such information to the users for which we believe it is relevant. Your language setting is used by us to provide Prius Health in your preferred language. You cannot change country or language after registering, so please make sure that you select the correct country and language when you create your account.
2.2. Themes, online tests and data you upload
Once your account is created, you may explore different themes. This often involves answering questions, setting up goals or writing notes of your thoughts concerning the chosen theme. When you have completed a theme, the theme and any input you have provided into the theme, such as comments or answers to questions, will be saved in your account for you to go back to and read. Upon completion of a theme, you will be recommended a number of other themes. These theme recommendations are general and based on your most recently selected theme.
If you do an online test, an algorithm will automatically generate a result based on your answers to questions in the test. The results generated will only be accessible to you and will be used to provide you with information and feedback. The results from the online tests will be saved in your account. If you cancel an online test before running the test, the data entered into the online test will not be saved.
You may also upload other data to your account, such as by entering notes into the diary. Additional functions will be added continuously.
Online test results, diary notes, themes and other data saved in your account will only be accessible to you and no other account holders, and will be processed only in order for you to follow your own personal development. The processing of these data is based on your consent. If you wish to withdraw your consent and instead wish for all or certain data to be deleted from your account, please contact us with a request to have the data deleted (see section 4.2 on how to delete certain personal data or content). The data will be stored in your account until you withdraw your consent or delete your account.
2.3. Public areas of Prius Health
Prius Health allows you to share questions from themes and thoughts on those themes with other users, as well as viewing questions and thoughts that other users have chosen to share. The public areas of Prius Health are accessible to all users that are associated with the same Partner registration code as your account. Any content you post in the public areas will be displayed anonymously. However, please ensure not to include personal data in the free text section of your post, as it can be viewed by other users. If you wish to have one of your previously published posts deleted, please contact us at email@example.com.
2.4. Contact form
Any messages you send to us via the contact form are transported to us via e-mail. We respond by sending an e-mail to the e-mail address with which your account is registered. Our processing of your message necessary in order for us to pursue our legitimate interest in handling and replying to incoming correspondence. We delete your message after having replied to it.
2.5. Log in reminders
Our vision is for Prius Health to improve the health and wellbeing of the users. As we believe that habits is what really makes a difference, our intention is that Prius Health shall form part of the users’ everyday life. In order to achieve that, frequent use of Prius Health is necessary. Our scientific research study, which is separate from but similar to Prius Health, has shown that the sending of login reminders leads to increased frequency of usage amongst the participants of the study. As it is in our legitimate interest that Prius Health is used as intended, we will send e-mail reminders to you after your last visit at
Prius Health, encouraging you to log in again. You may change the frequency of your reminders or turn them off completely in the settings section of your account.
