Terms of Service

Customers will be required to create an account on Evvy web application (“Evvy Account” or “Account”) and will be asked to complete an initial questionnaire in full in order to start the Sample testing process by Evvy and view the results and recommendations sent by Evvy.

13. Research and Research Studies
Research is an important aspect of our Services, and by using the Service and acceptance of these Terms, you grant us the consent to use your information for research and development purposes (“Research”). By using our Services, we invite you to take part in Evvy’s Research Program inspired by the opportunities to improve the understanding and treatment of women's health conditions. By accepting these Terms, you are acknowledging that you have reviewed this section and understand the information contained herein. If you are a paying customer, you will receive your test results and recommendations based on our analysis of samples and other information you provide to us, provided that you give Evvy the requisite materials/information. The recommendations and guidance may help you reach your wellness goals. Evvy reserves the right to not provide results and recommendations to non-paying study participants. The study recruitment letter will provide detailed information.
In using your information for Research, we use de-identified data (stripped of your personal details such as your name, contact information, and other identifiers) and use techniques like aggregation with information of others so that you cannot reasonably be identified as an individual by examining the de-identified or aggregated data.
We will reach out to you to obtain specific consents in the event that Research or other purposes require the use of individual-level PII. Participation in Research Studies using your individual-level PII is voluntary. In such cases, with your consent, Evvy may use your Individual-level PII in Evvy lead clinical studies and scientific research activities identified by Evvy study protocols that support a specific diagnosis of a disease, development of a treatment, or predict certain health conditions (“Research Study” or “Research Studies”).
We may reach out to you, from time to time, notifying you of the upcoming Research Study opportunities, and we may also reach out to obtain consent for the use ofPersonally Identifiable Information or ask additional questions relevant to a specific Research Study.
If you consent to the use of your PII for Research Studies, you agree that your consent does not entail any compensation (current or future) in any way or form (cash, equity, or other).
When you participate in a Research Study, you will be asked to provide vaginal swab samples and other information about yourself via surveys, forms, and other features where you enter information through the Evvy portal.
When you participate in a Research Study, we will provide you with sample kits. You may collect all samples at home following good hygiene practices. Evvy will provide you with clear instructions on how to properly collect the samples. You will send the samples to Evvy. You may be asked to provide additional samples.
Evvy will do a vaginal microbiome analysis to understand possible connections between your vaginal microbiome and health conditions. You will be asked to fill out questionnaires and surveys related to your health history.
Evvy will analyze your data and will send you a report if you are a paying customer. If the report has information that may be important to your medical health, you may choose to discuss with your health provider. However, it cannot be guaranteed that these recommendations will benefit your wellness. Generally, if you are not a paying customer we will not give you or your doctor information about the results of your individual participation in specific Research Studies. The analysis provided by Evvy is not intended, and should not be used, for treating or curing any medical condition.
Below are answers to a few common questions regarding Research Studies:
How may Evvy share your samples and health information for other studies?
We do not provide identifiable information to third parties. If we provide information to third parties, we will remove all information that identifies you before providing it. Evvy may use health information that no longer identifies you to do any type of research. The samples and information we collect in a Research Study may help advance other research. If you join a Research Study, we may remove all information that identifies you (for example, your name, medical record number, date of birth) and use these de-identified samples and data in other research. It won’t be possible to link the information or samples back to you. Information may be shared with investigators at other academic institutions or at commercial entities. You will not be asked to provide additional consent for these uses.
How long will my samples and data be kept?
What are the possible benefits from being in this Research Study?
Evvy’s mission is to make and support scientific discoveries related to women’s health conditions and publish those discoveries. Discoveries made as a result of this research could be used to understand the basic causes of disease, develop drugs or other treatments and/or preventive measures, or predict a person's risk of disease. If Evvy makes any such discoveries or sells any products or services as a result of a Research Study, you will not receive any payment. However, you and many others may benefit in the future from what we learn in this Research Study as scientific knowledge increases. By taking surveys you may learn about Evvy's research findings, including how your answers compare with those of others and new discoveries made by Evvy’s research program.
What are the risks and discomforts from being in Research Studies?
A security breach could result in release of your data and/or personal information. For example, there is a very small chance that someone with access to the research data or results could expose personal information about you. Evvy has policies and practices in place to minimize the chances of such an event. You will be notified of any known security breach that results in your data and/or personal information wrongly released to the public.
Can I refuse to participate or withdraw from the Research Studies?
Participation in Research Studies is voluntary. Your decision won’t change the medical care you get with your health providers now or in the future. There will be no penalty, and you won’t lose any benefits you receive nor or have a right to receive.
You may withdraw from any Research Study at any point during the process. When you withdraw from a Research Study, no new information will be gathered from you after that date. However, once we analyze your samples and place the information in the database, you will not be able to withdraw the information. Evvy may also not provide you with the results and/or recommendations if you withdraw from the Research Study.
Who do I contact if I have any questions?
If you have any further questions about Research Studies, have a concern about safety or experience any injury from participating in Research Studies, please contact email@example.com.
ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS IS REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY RESEARCH STUDY, AND ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS SHALL BE DEEMED CONSENT TO PARTICIPATE.
