2. What kind of medical professional have you been working with, and what has your experience been?
3. When did you start making lifestyle changes, which ones have you made and how have you felt?

5. Any other feedback to offer?
Please be aware that we do not grant refunds in the following situations:

We make every attempt to depict these guides digital and downloadable -- on the order and FAQ pages, as well as in this refund policy.
There are expenses on our end for every digital purchase made by our customers. Therefore, we do not grant refunds to those who were unclear about the delivery of the guides.
2. If you found out that you do not have PCOS.
This is great news! However, the guides contain information that all women should know and suggestions that help to balance hormones, regardless of whether or not you have been officially diagnosed with PCOS.
The guides were written from a Functional Medicine perspective and focus on a holistic approach to treating the root causes of symptoms, such as irregular cycles, lack of ovulation, hair loss or unwanted growth, acne, weight issues, painful periods, etc.
We're confident that the guides will help you, regardless of your specific diagnosis (or lack thereof). Therefore, we do not grant refunds to those who no longer have a PCOS diagnosis.

Examples of the type of information we may aggregate include information about demographics and collated information from responses to our quizzes. We may use, sell, license, and share this aggregated information with third parties for research, business, or other purposes, such as to improve our services or to help our partners understand more about women and health issues, including the people who use their products and services.

What if you don’t want us to collect your personal information or receive further communications from us?
You are not obligated to provide us with your personal information. You may choose whether or not you receive communications from us.

Should you wish to remove or modify your personal information or remove yourself from our contact database, you may do so at any time by contacting us at email@example.com.
How can you access, correct, and/or update personal information we have collected?
At any time, you may contact us and request your personal information to be modified. We will make all efforts to correct data once we have proved your identity.
We will deal with all requests for access to personal information as quickly as possible, but no later than 30 calendar days from the date of your request (unless any complexities arise). Requests for a large amount of information, or information which is not currently in use, may require further time before a response can be given.
We will provide you with your personal information in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format.In some cases, we will refuse to give you access to personal information we hold about you. This includes, but is not limited to, circumstances where giving you access would: be unlawful; have an unreasonable impact on other people’s privacy; prejudice an investigation of unlawful activity; reveal our intentions in relation to negotiations with you so as to prejudice those negotiations; prejudice enforcement related activities conducted by, or on behalf of, an enforcement body; reveal evaluative information generated within She Syncs business in connection with a commercially sensitive decision-making process.
We will also refuse access where the personal information relates to existing or anticipated legal proceedings, and the information would not be accessible by the process of discovery in those proceedings.
Further, we will refuse access where your request is frivolous or vexatious, and where we reasonably believe that:
- giving access would pose a serious threat to the life, health or safety of any individual, or to public health or public safety;
- unlawful activity, or misconduct of a serious nature, is being or may be engaged in against She Syncs and giving access would be likely to prejudice the taking of appropriate action in relation to that matter.
If we refuse to give you access, we will provide you with reasons for our refusal, unless doing so would be unreasonable in the circumstances. We will also take reasonable steps to give you access in a way that meets your needs without giving rise to the reasons for our refusal. Further, we will provide details of how you may make a complaint about our decision.
EU citizens are entitled to the right to the erasure of personal information in certain circumstances, including but not limited to where the information is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected, or where the EU citizen withdraws their consent, and there is no other legal ground for processing their personal information. Please contact us to discuss your request to remove your personal information.
EU citizens acknowledge and agree that She Syncs may exercise any of the exceptions to the right of erasure, specifically in cases where data processing is necessary to exercise the right of freedom of expression and information.
We retain information for as long as required, allowed, or we believe it useful. You must keep your own separate back-up records. However, the length of time we keep your personal information depends on what it is and whether we have an ongoing business need to retain it (for example, to provide you with a service you’ve requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax, or accounting requirements).
We’ll retain your personal information for as long as we have a relationship with you and for a period afterward, where we have an ongoing business need to retain it in accordance with our data retention policies and practices. Following that period, we’ll make sure it’s deleted or anonymized.
How do we store and protect your personal information?
For us to provide excellent service, we are required to store some personal information and take the greatest of care to ensure this information is treated as private and confidential. Transmitting personal data via the internet does have inherent risks associated with it. We will, however, take all reasonable steps to ensure the security of this data.
We have taken the necessary measures to ensure the personal information (including financial information about yourself) we hold is not compromised. In accordance with and as permitted by applicable law and regulations, we will retain your information as long as necessary to serve you, to maintain your She Syncs account or as otherwise needed to operate our business.
However, we cannot be held liable for events outside our control, particularly with respect to third parties who act as repositories of your information.
We rely on the security certificates of trusted third-party platforms. We will take reasonable steps to maintain the integrity and security of any personal information we have stored, including taking reasonable steps to prevent interference and loss, misuse, unauthorized access, modification, or disclosure of such personal information.
Note that no information transmitted over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. While we will endeavor to protect your personal information as best as possible, we cannot guarantee the security of any information that you transmit to us or receive from us. The transmission and exchange of information are carried out at your own risk.
We have obligations to notify you if you are affected by a data breach. We will take all reasonable precautions to take remedial action to prevent such an event. However, as we cannot guarantee that remedial action will be sufficient to prevent all instances of a breach, we will take steps to notify you of an eligible data breach as soon as practicable, or no later than 72 hours (where feasible) for EU citizens, and provide recommendations as to what steps you should take to mitigate any serious loss or damage.
We may transfer data we receive about you, including all personal information, to our hosting service providers and data centers located overseas. You hereby expressly and voluntarily grant your informed consent to such transfers.
