Creation of a Health Profile
We gather personal health-related data from our members with the aim of contributing to the development of new treatments and potentially assisting our members in enhancing their own health. The sole purpose of collecting and processing your personal information is to improve health, and your data will be exclusively utilized for this purpose.
