(all collectively “Services). Your data is necessary for us to provide the Services.
The prime purpose of collecting and using your data is to allow us to properly measure and create a personalized path to reduce your snoring.

Velleman Consultancy collects data to operate effectively and provide you with the appropriate snoring advice and recommendations to reduce your snoring.

But if you elect not to provide data that is necessary to a product or service feature, you may not be able to use all Services products or features given the provided information is necessary for us to perform certain critical Services tasks and to support Services features.
Velleman Consultancy does not sell your data to advertisers, nor does it use what you provide in your measured snoring data, sleep questionnaires, or other interactions to target external ads to you. We use the data through our interactions with you to personalize snoring advice and insights along with recommendations of relevant snoring Services that may help your sleep condition based on analysis of your collected snoring data.
We use collected data to continually improve our product and services including adding new features and enhancing accuracy of the platform.
