Privacy Policy – Positively Pregnant App


This privacy policy covers how WaikatoLink Limited treats personal information that it collects and receives on the Positively Pregnant App (“the App”) or through our services. We use information shared with us for the sole purpose of running and improving our services. This policy tells you what information we collect, steps we take to protect and secure it, how we use and share information, and finally, how you can contact us with questions or concerns.

By accessing or using the App you agree to be bound by this privacy policy. If you do not agree to be bound by this privacy policy then you should stop accessing and using the App.

Any reference to “we”, “our” or “us” in this privacy policy means WaikatoLink Limited, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the University of Waikato.


When you use the App you can choose to upload non-identifying data stored in the App weekly, fortnightly, monthly or not at all. You will be asked to confirm each time the App is scheduled to upload the data. If you do upload the data, we will be able to link uploads from the same phone so we can join them together but the uploaded data will not include your name or other names in the App, photographs or information you write into modules such as Notes to Self or Notes to Baby. The data that is uploaded will be used by the Positively Pregnant team, led by Carrie Cornsweet Barber ( to improve the App and may contribute to publications about the App or about experiences of pregnancy.

We will only hold personally identifiable information about you if you e-mail us to telephone us for any reason and we have no way to link that information to the non-identifying data that you may have uploaded from the App.


We collect personally identifiable information in order to provide the best possible service to you as a customer of, or party interested in, Positively Pregnant.


We do not sell, rent, supply, give up or lease out any user or customer information to any third parties. We will only disclose information about you or your use of the App and/or services without your prior permission if we have a belief in good faith that such action is necessary to:

  1. Conform to legal requirements (including, but not limited to, requirements in accordance with any applicable law, regulation or government request) or comply with legal process, or to help maintain the law
  2. Protect our rights or property or those of our related companies
  3. Act to protect the interests of our, or our related companies, customers or personnel


This Privacy Statement only relates to the Positively Pregnant App. You are encouraged to review the privacy statements of apps or websites you choose to link to from our (or any other) App so that you can understand how those apps or websites collect, use and share information.

We reserve the right to change this policy at any time. Any changes will take effect immediately as soon as they are posted on the Positively Pregnant App. Wherever possible we will notify you of any changes to this policy, but in the event that we do not, your continued use of our services indicates your acceptance of the particular policy that is posted on the App at the time of use.
