Some aspects of your Personal Data may, at our discretion, be anonymized or obscured as part of the Service, such as information that may be relevant to your relationship with us but not with other users. By way of example, payment method information submitted by a Clinic User is not relevant to the Professional User, and vice versa. As such, you acknowledge and understand that the Company retains some discretion as to what may be displayed on the Services, but in any event, all information submitted as part of your Account shall be deemed to be Personal Data.
