How we make use of mobile equipment resources?

Our App(s) may need access to certain features on your device, such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi/mobile data network, in order to properly function. This information is used to allow the App(s) to run on your device, allow you to interact with the App(s) and connect/pair with its companion medical device. At any time you may revoke your permissions by turning these off at the device level, but the App(s) functionality may become limited. In particular, after installation, the app will request the user permission to access the following equipment services (with the following purposes):

Location
This permission is requested to allow the App(s) to scan for nearby companion devices in order to pair and stablish a Bluetooth connection with such devices, allowing to control them and perform new assays. This function may run in background to allow the App(s) to keep track of Bluetooth connection status and maintain assay results data transfer, even if the user is performing other tasks in the mobile equipment. If such permission is not allowed, the App will only be able to function partially, to provide access to results of previously performed assays, but the Client or User will not be able to pair with the device, nor conduct any new assays.
Camera
This permission is requested to allow access to camera such that the Client or User may scan the data matrix code provided with the device (for pairing) and/or assay kits (for registering assay reference and lot number). The Client or User may opt-out on this permission, and in this case, fill in the required fields manually.
Storage
This permission is requested to allow temporary storage of information related to some App(s) function. The Client or User may opt-out on this permission, while still using most of the App(s) main functions.

How can you become aware of any changes to STAB VIDA's privacy policy?

STAB VIDA reserves the right at any time to make adjustments or changes to this Privacy Policy, these changes being duly publicized on the App(s) and STAB VIDA website(s).
