    • Please note: Our policy is to notify you of legal process seeking access to your information, such as search warrants, court orders, or subpoenas, unless we are prohibited by law from doing so. In cases where a court order specifies a non-disclosure period, we provide delayed notice after the expiration of the non-disclosure period. Exceptions to our notice policy include exigent or counterproductive circumstances, for example, when there is an emergency involving a danger of death or serious physical injury to a person. 
  • To Protect Us and Others- We may disclose the information we collect from you where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or act regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person, violations of our Terms of Use or this Policy, or as evidence in litigation in which SKIIN is involved. 
  • Third Party Analytics- We use automated devices and applications, such as Google Analytics and Mixpanel, to evaluate usage of our service. We may use other analytic means to evaluate our service. We use these tools to help us improve our service, performance, and user experiences.


Myant Inc. will obtain consent before any collection, use or disclosure of any personal identifiable information (PII) and personal health information (PHI) for purposes that we have identified. Individuals who sign up for a SKIIN account will provide explicit consent during account creation. 

By using the Service or providing us with any PII and PHI, you consent to the transfer to, and processing, sharing and storage of your information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. Please note that other countries may have privacy and data protection regulations that are not on par with the regulations in Canada and may not provide the same level of protection. 

We will always ask for your consent if we ever share or use your PII and/or PHI for a purpose other than what is in this Privacy Policy. At any point, you can withdraw your consent by contacting us at [email protected]

Security of My Personal Information
Your privacy is important to Myant Inc., and we enforce privacy measures to ensure that your PII and PHI is protected against unauthorized access, use and modification. 

All data is protected through an AES256-bit encrypted database and data during any transfer between the database, server and mobile application is encrypted using HTTPS. 

Our data exists in a private virtual cloud, hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS provides features that help in maintaining secure data through security groups, network access control lists and flow logs. AWS has ISO 27001, ISO 27017, and ISO 27018 certifications, ensuring it meets international standards for information security management systems, security controls for cloud services and security techniques for protection of personally identifiable information. 

During SKIIN account creation, a complex password (between 8 to 30 characters and a minimum of one special character or number) is required for all users. The authentication process requires email confirmation before a user can log into the application. Resetting forgotten passwords will also require email confirmation. 

Only authorized individuals can access users’ PII and PHI data on secure databases, which can only be accessed through secure passwords. Employees are required to sign documentation that obliges them to protect users’ PII and PHI and will only be able to access PII and PHI to fulfill their job requirements. 

We also encourage you to take your own security measures, such as the following:

  1. Not sharing your password with anyone else 
  2. Remembering to log out of the Service if accessing it on someone else’s personal device 
  3. Updating your password regularly 
  4. Having a password on your personal device 
  5. Locking your personal device when not in use 

Security Breaches 

As per the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) and Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA), when impermissible or unauthorized access, acquisition, use, and/or disclosure of an individual’s Protected Health Information (PHI) handled by Myant Inc. occurs, we are required to keep records and notify any involved individuals of all breaches and to report to the Privacy Commissioner of Canada of any security breaches that pose a significant risk of harm to any individual or the public. 

Your Rights Regarding Your Health Information

You have certain rights regarding your health information, which are explained below. You may exercise these rights by submitting a request in writing to [email protected]

  • Right to inspect and copy: If you would like to inspect or receive a copy of your PHI that is contained in a designated record set (e.g., health and billing records), we are required to provide you access to such information within 30 days after receipt of your request (with up to a 30-day extension if required with notice). We may charge you a reasonable fee to cover duplication, mailing and other costs incurred by us in complying with your request.  We may deny your request for access to your personal information as permitted by PIPEDA/PHIPA. For example, we may deny your request if we believe the disclosure will endanger your life or that of another person. Depending on the circumstances of the denial, you may have a right to have this decision reviewed.
  • Right to Request Restrictions on Use and Disclosure: You have the right to request a restriction or limitation on certain uses and disclosures of your health information. To request restrictions, you must make your request in writing to [email protected]. In your request, you must tell us:
    • What information you wish to limit
    • Whether you wish to limit our use, disclosure, or both
    • To whom you want the limits to apply – for example, if you want to prohibit disclosures for insurance payment, health care operations, for disaster relief purposes, to persons involved in your care, or to your spouse.
  • Right to Request Amendment: If you believe that any health information, we have about you is incorrect or incomplete, you have the right to ask us to change the information for as long as Myant Inc. maintains the information. To request an amendment to your health information, your request must be in writing, signed, and submitted to Myant Inc.  If we deny your request, we will provide you with a written explanation. You may respond with a statement of disagreement that will be maintained with your records. We will respond to your request within 60 days (with up to a 30-day extension if needed with notice).
  • Right to Receive Confidential Communications: You have the right to request that we communicate with you about your health information in a confidential manner or at a specific location. For example, you may ask that we only contact you via mail to a post office box. You must submit your request in writing to Myant Inc. We will not ask you the reason for your request. Your request must specify how or where you wish to be contacted. We will accommodate all reasonable requests.
  • Right to Receive an Accounting of Certain Disclosures: With some exceptions, you have the right to receive an accounting of certain disclosures we have made, if any, of your health information.

You may receive one free accounting in any 12-month period. We will charge you for additional requests.  This right only applies to disclosures for purposes other than treatment, payment or health care operations as described in this Notice. It also excludes disclosures we may have made to you, your family members or friends involved in your care. The right to receive this information is subject to certain exceptions, restrictions and limitations as allowed by PIPEDA/PHIPA.
  • Right to Obtain a Copy of this Notice: You have the right to receive a paper copy of this Notice upon request, even if you have agreed to receive the Notice electronically. You may ask us to give you a copy of this Notice at any time.
  • Right to Cancel Authorization to Use or Disclose: Other uses and disclosures of your health information not covered by this Notice or the laws that govern us will be made only with your written authorization. You have the right to revoke your authorization in writing at any time, and we will discontinue future uses and disclosures of your health information for the reasons covered by your authorization. We are unable to take back any disclosures that were already made with your authorization, and we are required to retain the records of the care that we provided to you.

What Choices Do I Have Regarding Promotional Emails? 

We may send periodic promotional emails to you. You may opt-out of such communications by following the opt-out instructions contained in the email. Please note that it may take up to 30 business days for us to process opt-out requests. We may still send you emails about your account or any services you have requested or received from us. 

Users Under 18 

Our services are not designed for users under 18. If we discover that a user under 18 has provided us with personal information, we will delete such information from our systems. 


If you believe that we have violated your privacy rights, you may file a complaint with us by notifying us at [email protected]. You may also file a complaint with the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario if you feel that your rights have been violated. There will be no retaliation from Myant Inc. for making a complaint.
