  3. Personal Information We Collect
    We do not ask for any personal information to provide our Services to you except
    some categorical information (age range, educational background, professional
    background). If you sign up as a Peer, we do require certain Personal Information
    (your LinkedIn ID ) to provide our Services to you. We anonymize all the information
    once we process it. “Personal Information” may include contact information such as
    your LinkedIn ID (maybe including first name, last name, email address, location,
    phone number), information about your health and medical history that you may
    input while using or communicating through the Services, and information about how
    you interact with and use your device. Personal Information that has been
    anonymized is not Personal Information as it does not allow for a specific individual
    to be identified.
    Peer Chat Transcripts. While we generally do not monitor transcripts of chats
    between users and Peers, we may occasionally review the chat transcripts to
    conduct quality control, address potential safety issues, and prevent misuse of our
    platform, if certain suspicious or potentially harmful activity is detected. We may also
    use aggregated data from anonymized chat transcripts to conduct research and
    development. In reviewing this information, Oshrink will maintain all applicable
    confidentiality/HIPAA/privacy standards.
    Without providing your Personal Information you may not access Services through
    Oshrink, contact or correspond with us or other users, or utilise the mCorners and
    other programs available on our platform.
    ● Account Setup. When you sign up for an account with us, we ask for and
    collect Personal Information such as your age range, educational and
    professional background. We need this information to provide you with the
    relevant services. For Peers, we also ask for their LinkedIn Id, so as to
    validate the quality of our Peers. Though the information collected is
    encrypted and anonymized.
    ● Peer Applicants. If a user wishes to apply to be a Peer on Oshrink, the visitor
    will be required to submit Personal Information as requested. Any Personal
    Information supplied by or on behalf of a user for purposes of becoming a
    Peer will be maintained by Oshrink. Please note that Oshrink may have
    additional privacy terms that apply to the Peers. Such terms will be made
    available when an applicant applies to be a Peer or otherwise accesses his or
    her account.
    ● Mental Health Services. We collect your Personal Information when you
    access mental health services through our Services, when you contact or
    correspond with us or the Peers via the Services or when you utilise the
    therapy exercises and challenges available on the Services.
    ● Chats, or Other Features. Depending on how you interact with the Services,
    you may share your Personal Information with other Users, such as your
    peers. Anything users post in chats, or other features will be accessible to
    other users and may not be able to be deleted. Accordingly, Oshrink strongly
    discourages posting any Personal Information in these places and it is your
    responsibility not to share Personal Information in such a non-private location.

    information about how you use our Services to engage, educate and suggest
    behavioural activation strategies to you.

    of our Services.
    Users can request a download of their own Personal Information that Oshrink
    currently stores, and also request deletion of their account and associated Personal
    Information. We reserve the right to prevent a User from exercising such rights in
    certain circumstances, as permitted by law. For example, if the User in question has
    broken the terms laid out in the Terms, caused harm or has abused our Services, or
    has negatively impacted other members. In this case, we retain the right to keep
    some of your Personal Information in order to provide more security and safety to
