- User agreement
Oky is a period tracker app for girls and created with girls. It provides information about menstruation in fun, creative and positive ways.
Oky is targeted at young people from ages 10 and older. If you are under 16 years old, we encourage you to discuss your use and engagement on the Oky app with your parents or guardians and make sure that they consent to your use of the Oky app.
- Account creation and security
In order for you to use the period tracker functions on the Oky app, you will need to register on the Oky app and create an account. Creating an account is optional but doing so will allow you to track your periods and other health information on the day cards (such as body, mood, activity and flow, and your daily diary card). If you do not create an account, you will still have access to Oky’s information in the encyclopaedia.
During account creation, we ask you to create a username or display name, indicate your month and year of birth, your gender and location (country and province only). We encourage you to create a username or display name that is not your real name or discloses your real name or other information that could identify you – especially if you are under the age of 18 years.
Once you create your account, you will be required to select a secret question and provide an answer. Please keep this information safe since it is the only way to access your account if you forget your password.
Once you create your account you can edit your username or display name by choosing a different one, change your password or change your secret question and password.
You are responsible for keeping your password, secret question and answer secret and your account secure. You are responsible for all uses of your account, even if your account is used by someone else. You may not use another person’s Oky account without their permission.
If you have any reason to believe that your account is no longer secure – if your password has been stolen, for instance – you should change your password as soon as possible. If you forget your password, you will be prompted to input your secret answer in order to access your account.
If you have forgotten your secret question and answer, you will have several opportunities to try, however, if you cannot remember, you will have to create a new account to continue using the Oky app. If you create a new account, kindly note that you will not be able to retrieve your previous information associated with your other account.
Oky does not have access to your account and cannot change, retrieve or reset passwords or secret questions for its users.
