    ELSE CARE SAS recommends its users to use a username that does not contain any immediately identifiable data (first and last name). Furthermore, ELSE CARE SAS reminds its users that usernames are visible on the public pages of the forum. The Member is informed and accepts that Carenity reserves the right to unilaterally terminate the present general terms and conditions with respect to him/her/they (cancellation of the conditions presented here) if the Member has voluntarily provided his/her/their login and password to another person.

    The Member who does not wish to be identified on www.carenity.us is informed and accepts that risks of identification by other Members registered in the same community as him/her exist depending on the nature and precision of the information that he/she agrees to share within his/her community.

  4. Personal Data. Members' data may, subject to their explicit consent in this respect and in execution of the General Terms of Use, be used as follows:

    to benefit from the services that interest them and to which they wish to subscribe, namely:

    • The distribution and sharing of information and various contents relating to health, fitness and human ailments and pathologies, and to all products and/or services relating to them,
    • Its connection with the other members of the site www.carenity.us concerned by the same affection as chosen by the Member for this purpose,
    • The exchange of information and contents with the other Members of the site www.carenity.us via private electronic messages and/or via spaces of community publication and interactive discussions (for example news feeds, discussion forums, private messaging),
    • The benefit of tools for individual monitoring of the Member's state of health,

    The Member is informed that in this context, personal data - in particular identification data and health data - concerning him/her/they are collected and processed in execution of these general terms of use and on the basis of his/her/their explicit consent after having read the information and consent notice upon registration.

    The Member's data may also be processed to enable him/her/they to receive institutional or promotional information from ELSE CARE or its partners on subjects of interest to him/her/they on the basis of voluntary, active and specific consent. For example, he/she/they may receive information about studies and surveys to enable him/her/they to participate if he/she/they so desires and/or to be put in touch with potential partner organizations responsible for conducting such studies and/or surveys.

    The Member may withdraw his/her/their consent at any time and without justification. In this case, he/she/they acknowledges that he/she/they will no longer be able to benefit from the services accessible from www.carenity.us and/or receive institutional and promotional information.

    The withdrawal of the Member's consent will not affect the lawfulness (legal authorization) of the processing carried out prior to the withdrawal of his/her/their consent. That is to say, if the Member withdraws his/her/their consent, the data collected before the withdrawal may be legally processed (consulted, analyzed, etc.)

    The Member's data may also be used in the context of studies or evaluations in the field of health, in particular semantic, scientific, medical, medico-economic or quality of life studies carried out by ELSE CARE on its behalf or on behalf of its contractual partners, unless the Member specifically objects to each study, which he/she/they must be informed of beforehand. The studies are conducted after the application of reinforced security measures in order to guarantee the respect of the Member's private life.

    Finally, ELSE CARE may also produce statistics within the framework of its activities and services accessible from www.carenity.us that it implements, after aggregating the data of Members and Users (data collection) that no longer allows them to be identified and in order to guarantee their anonymity.
