My Brain and Me - Privacy policy

Please read our Privacy Policy below for the My Brain and Me app

The My Brain and Me app works as a mood diary and information resource for young people aged 13 and over recovering from a brain injury.

This Privacy Policy gives an overview of how My Brain and Me collects and stores data and what it is used for. If you have any questions regarding this policy or your data do not hesitate in contacting us at apps@brainandspine.org.uk.

What we do with the data
