3. Introduction to the inne SYSTEM
The inne SYSTEM is a fertility monitoring device that supports you in understanding your reproductive health by measuring progesterone in your saliva throughout the menstrual cycle. The inne SYSTEM is an integrated system consisting of three components:
The inne STRIPS
The inne READER
The inne APP
The inne STRIPS are used to detect salivary progesterone. The inne READER measures the amount of progesterone on the inne STRIPS and sends the results to the inne APP, which provides an ongoing analysis to you, the user. The inne STRIPS are distributed in boxes with 8 strips (inne STRIP box).
4. Ordering the inne SYSTEM
When purchasing the inne SYSTEM through the Site, you have the option to choose between different subscription models with different minimum terms, each providing you with a regular supply of inne STRIPS and the access to the inne APP (for example 12 months).
After you place an order, you will receive a confirmation email from inne constituting inne’s acceptance of your order and at that point a contract will come into existence between you and us in respect of your order for the Products.
