The forDiabetes Platform is a data tracking tool that collects and analyzes diabetes related to health data, entered manually or imported from third party applications and devices.
Personal data you provide to us. The forDiabetes Platform collects data that you provide via the application user interface, like full name, email address, year of birth, country and health related information, including type of diabetes, blood glucose measurements, meals (carbs, glycemic index), activities (type, duration, distance, calories burned), medication treatment, blood pressure measurements, weight, glycated hemoglobin test results. The forDiabetes Platform does not collect any personal data without your permission.
Google requires that any Android app that uses Bluetooth should be granted location access. If you don't need to import data from a Bluetooth glucometer, you will not be asked for the location access. In any case we do not store, send or use your location.
