This app has been developed by Sonova AG, Laubisrütistrasse 28, 8712 Stäfa, Switzerland and is intended to be used with compatible wireless hearing instruments. This app sends a signal and controls the hearing aids via selected mobile devices for which this app has been developed.
Please refer to the “Disclaimer” section of this settings menu and the user guides provided with your hearing instrument for information on intended use, cautions and warnings.
The purpose of this notice is to inform you about the types of data that is collected with the app, how that data is used and with whom it is shared.
To be able to use the app and pairing your hearing device to your smartphone, your hearing device name, as defined by your Hearing Care Professional, which may include your name, and Bluetooth address will be registered in the app on your smartphone. To provide the remote control functionality, some data, such as current hearing aid volume, current hearing aid program, program options and battery state, will be registered and visualized in the mobile app too.
Furthermore, to provide you with useful usage information about the average wearing time of your hearing aid in hours per day, the time of the last adjustment of your hearing aid by your Hearing Care Professional is registered and visualized in the app too.
