As part of the Nura community, you and your privacy are of high importance to us. Making the world's first headphones that automatically know how you hear is no easy feat. To achieve our vision of providing perfect sound for every person in any place, Nura products collect and analyse your hearing data to create your personalised hearing profile.
We also know that an amazing experience isn’t just about having a revolutionary product - it’s also about getting help when you need and making sure the process of ordering, receiving and using your Nuraphones is as easy as possible.
What data does Nura collect?
When you buy a product
When you purchase a Product, we collect transaction information, such as information about the Products you purchase, shipping and delivery information and information related to returns, refunds and cancellations.
When you create a Nura account
You may also have the option to create your Nura account using your credentials from certain social media accounts, such as your Facebook or Google+ accounts. If you choose to do so, we may have access to basic information about you from that account, like your name, profile picture, and friend list, in accordance with your privacy settings on that service.
When you calibrate a Nura product
Calibration of Nura Products involves collecting signals from your ear, including frequency responses and a measurement called Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE). Nura analyses your hearing data -- the OAE and frequency responses-- to create calibration data that provides you with a personalised sound experience. The calibration data is stored locally on the Product so you can experience personalised sound day-to-day, without using the App. This hearing data is also sent to Nura and used to optimize and develop Nura products and services.
When you sync your Nura product
Whenever your Product is connected to your device, and your device has a network connection, usage data is transferred from your Nura Products to our servers. Usage data is information about how you use the Product, such as the duration of a listening session and the volume of the sound during that session.
When you use our services
Whenever anyone visits the nura Sites or Apps, we will collect standard log data, such as: the page that they were referred from, the actions they performed, their browser type, App version, their operating system and the pages viewed. We also collect information about the computer or mobile device you use to access our Services, including the hardware model, operating system and version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information.
When you refer your friends
Great music should be shared with great friends! This is why Nura lets you invite friends to receive a discount off their very own Nura Products, while rewarding you too. When you invite your friends, you’ll be asked to provide details such as their name and email address. By providing such information, you represent that you have their permission to share their information with Nura.
When you interact with Nura and the Nura community
In your pursuit for perfect sound, we encourage you to be active in the Nura community. When communicating with the Nura community in public areas or social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, any information you provide may become public information. At times Nura will also collect and store this information to help improve your experience, learn more about your tastes as a Nura community member, and for marketing purposes.
We encourage you to take care when providing information in public forums, especially information that may pertain to your identity or health. Please also note that the content created by members of the Nura community may include the advice and opinions of the general public - as these are not posted by Nura, they do not represent the advice or opinions of Nura and Nura does not necessarily support or validate this content.
Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive or in device memory that help us improve our Products and Services, improve your experience, see which areas and features of our Services are popular, and to count visits.

Such technologies are also used to help you move seamlessly between the Nura App and Site without logging in.

When you contact the Nura team
There’s nothing more annoying than having to repeat yourself, so when you contact us, we collect personal information such as your name, email address, and any other information you provide. We keep a record of this information, along with the nature of your requests over time. This helps us learn more about your experience using Nura Products, your preferences, and how we are best placed to help you. Storing and analysing this data, also helps us identify how to optimise and improve the Nura experience for everyone. We may also monitor, record and retain your communications with us for security, dispute resolution and training purposes.
When you assist Nura’s research
From time to time, the Nura team will reach out to you for your advice and opinions on our Products and Services, for Nura’s research purposes to improve our current Products and Services and develop new ones. Such surveys will only be sent by Nura and authorised research affiliates - they will be clearly marked as for use by Nura only, unless stated otherwise. Surveys may collect both anonymous and identifiable information.
