Your privacy is very important to us at Perigee and we appreciate that you are trusting us with your personal information. Here are a few of our fundamental privacy principles:
- If you invite your partner to share your menstrual cycle, they can only see your cycle phases: period, pregnancy, fertility and PMS days. Nothing else is shared.
- We aggregate and de-identify certain information about our users to use for business purposes.
- Information you share with Cycles is not publicly accessible.

- Where necessary to comply with legal obligation, a court order, or to exercise and defend legal claims.

We do this to understand your needs, improve Cycles, deliver personalized insights and other core functionality in Cycles, such as sharing your menstrual cycles with a partner, keeping your data up to date across multiple devices, automatic backup of your data etc., as well as to keep Cycles safe and secure by protecting against fraud, spam, abuse etc.

Health and sensitive data
We store the dates of your past and current periods as well as symptoms or events you choose to track in Cycles. Optional symptoms to track can be data such as basal body temperature, pain, cravings, sexual activity, cervical mucus quality etc. It is only when you create a Cycles account we start storing all your health and sensitive data on our servers.

If you do so you can still use Cycles without an Account and all your personal data and health data will stay on your device locally only. If you use Cycles without an Account, make sure to take regular backups to avoid loss of your data.
If you choose to sign up and log in to Cycles using accounts you created with third-party services such as Sign in with Apple (collectively, “Third-Party Accounts”) we will collect information that you agreed to make available such as name, email address and profile information. This information is collected by the Third-Party Account provider and is provided to Perigee under their privacy policies. You can generally control what information they share with us by using their privacy settings.
Use across our services
We may combine information we collect from you with information obtained from third parties and information derived from any other subscription, product or service we provide.
How We Use Information
We store your health and sensitive data to your Account to offer the functionality of connecting with your partner, syncing your data across your devices and maintaining a backup of your data in case you lose or change your device. We process related symptoms and other events to give personalized insights and statistics for you.
We use your usage information to analyze and improve Cycles. To accomplish this Perigee may use third party providers to analyze and gain insight into how Cycles is used and to help us improve Cycles.
We use your device information to send you notifications about events that occur in Cycles. You can always control what notifications you receive from Cycles from the Settings section in the applications. We also use your information to respond to you when you contact us. Perigee will use your information to communicate with you, for example by sending you notifications.
How Information Is Shared
We may share anonymous, aggregate statistics with outside parties, such as common symptoms during different phases of the menstrual cycle, average cycle lengths etc.
To analyze, gain insight and improve Cycles we might share de-identified information with third-parties. These third parties will only receive the information needed to perform these specific actions, and Perigee will never share more information than necessary.
We may share your information with third parties who provide services to Perigee such as supporting and improving Cycles or promoting Cycles. These service providers will only have access to the information necessary to perform these limited functions on our behalf and are required to protect and secure your information.
We may also engage service providers to collect information about your use of Cycles over time on our behalf so that we or they may promote Cycles or display information that may be relevant to your interests in Cycles or other websites or services.
Our primary legal duty is under European law, and have no duty to disclose private health data to US authorities. Because we're governed under European law you can rest assured that an order by a U.S. court or any other third party outside of the EU is not a legal basis for a transfer of personal data.
We may disclose your information in response to European subpoenas, court orders, or other legal requirements; to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims; to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud or abuse, violations of our policies; or to protect our rights and property.
We may disclose your information in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal requirements; to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims; to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud or abuse, violations of our policies; or to protect our rights and property.
In the future, we may sell to, buy, merge with, or partner with other businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets.
How We Protect Information
We work hard to keep your data safe in Cycles from the collection, transmission and storage of the data we collect. We use a combination of technical controls to maintain the security of your data. This includes using industry standard Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to encrypt many of our services and ensure that information is transmitted and stored securely in Cycles. In addition to this, we protect this information using advanced firewall technology.
Although we use a combination of industry standards to maintain the security of your data, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure, and Perigee cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Perigee. Transmitting personal information is done at your own risk.
To protect data on your device we recommend all our users to use a complex passcode, TouchID or FaceID to unlock the device Cycles is installed on. In addition to activating the device lock you can set an app specific lock on Cycles from the the applications settings. Both a 4-pin code, TouchID and FaceID is available to protect your app from unauthorised access, even if someone has access to your device.
Cycles provides options in the Settings to access and control your personal information. If you need any further assistance regarding your rights, feel free to contact us either from the applications or through the contact form at http://perigee.se/support.
Notifications and Email Preferences
Access Your Data
If you do not have an account then no personal information will be stored outside the device being used. By logging in to your account, you can access much of your information.
You also have the option to download your personal data we have on you when logged in to your Cycles Account.
Editing and Deleting Your data
From Cycles you can always edit your information such as name, password etc. You can also edit or delete specific recorded events like period start dates, physical symptoms, cravings etc.
You may delete your account directly from Cycles. Once deleted, all your data, including account, menstrual cycles, body symptoms, moods, events etc. cannot be reinstated.
Objecting to Data Use
In Cycles you can control our data use. For example you can delete your Account to only keep all your data locally on device. By using the reminders settings you can limit the notifications which you receive from Cycles, and you can revoke access from Apple Health through the health settings which prevents Cycles from accessing or sharing your health information with Apple Health.
Your consent for processing health and sensitive data
If you create an account with Cycles, your personal data—including sensitive data and data related to your health—is stored on your device and is also stored and processed on our servers. This is done so we can offer you backups of your data and to enable additional features such as connecting with your partner and using Cycles on multiple devices.
By creating an account with Cycles you explicitly consent that:
- Cycles may store and process personal data you provide through the usage of the Cycles app and through the account creation process solely for the purpose of providing Cycles to you and to improve Cycle’s services. Such services may include sending you information and reminders through the Cycles app or to the email address you provided for your account.
- Personal data you provide to Cycles through the account creation process includes personal data you enter into the Cycles app, such as your account data (e.g. your name and email address), and your cycle data (e.g. period length, pain, or spotting). Depending on the data you provide, it may also contain information about your general health (e.g. body temperature, and if you engage in sexual intercourse).
- Cycles will not transmit any of your personal data to third parties, except if it is required to provide the Cycles service to you (e.g. technical service providers), unless Cycles has asked for your explicit consent.
You may withdraw your consent to this use of your data at any time by deleting your Cycles account. If you choose to do so, you may continue using the Cycles app without an account, but since a copy of your data will no longer be stored on our servers, please be sure to make regular backups of your data to avoid data loss—we are not able to retrieve lost data of users without Cycles accounts.
We keep information as long as it is necessary to operate Cycles. We keep all of your information until you either delete your account or if your account has been inactive for a certain amount of time, whichever happens first. Following the deletion of your account, it may take up to 60 days to fully delete your personal information from our systems.
Information about you that is no longer necessary and relevant to provide our services may be de-identified and aggregated with other non-personal data to provide insights which are commercially valuable to Perigee, such as statistics of the use of Cycles.
If you become aware that a child under the age of 16 has submitted personal data to us, please contact us at email@example.com.
If we learn that we have accessed and stored personal information about a child under the minimum required age, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.
Changes to This Policy
Any and all material changes shall come into effect between you and Perigee upon your acceptance of such changes (e.g. by using Cycles after such notification has been made to you or renewing your subscription).
