Mobile application Terms of Use and Privacy: For the ReSound Smart app

To help us provide you with an improved GN Hearing experience we are interested in basic information about how you use the mobile application. When sharing information with us on how you use the mobile application features we can learn about the capability of the mobile application and how we can improve and enhance future updates and product releases. Our mission is to employ the user behavior insights to further develop the user experience of our future mobile applications.

Types of collected information

GN Hearing collects information by analyzing how the application features are used in general. This could be information about how extensively a feature is used and when the feature is typically activated.

We collect data across all the application users together and so we do not track and analyze your individual application behavior.

In other words the information we collect is aggregated, non-personally, identifiable data across all the active application users. For example we can tell if the volume bar is used by a majority of all users but we are not tracking your individual use of the volume bar.

GN Hearing collect the following type of information:
  • Application feature information
    We may collect information about the services in use and how they are being used. In practice this could be information about features that are used, how often they are used and for how long time they are being used.
  • Device type information
    We may collect generic device-specific information such as the type of mobile device and mobile operating system.
  • Technical log information
    When you use GN ReSound applications we may automatically collect and store certain technical information in server logs. This may include:
    - Details of how the applications are used.
    - Internet protocol.
    - Device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL.
  • Location information
    When the location and GPS enabled services are in use, we may collect information that show the countries and locations, where the application is being used.
    As all the data is collected across all application users we are not able to determine your current or previous location.

Further, it enables us to identify the need to improve existing functionality and develop new applications.

As stated the data collection happens across all mobile application users and hence we cannot track the user independently. Furthermore the application data is kept confidential meaning that only employees involved in the product development will have access to the data in detail.

GN Hearing processes the application information on our main servers. These may be located on an international server outside the country where you live. We have take high security precautions for our storage of application data.

In some instances, GN Hearing may use external data collection services, which mean that we might make use of non-GN Hearing owned servers for storage of application data. The information will still be kept confidential.
