BodiMetrics Privacy Policy

Last update August 31, 2015

BodiMetrics designs products and tools that track everyday health and fitness to empower and inspire users to lead healthier, more active lives. This Privacy Policy applies to our personal wellness and electronic body monitoring products (“Devices”); our device firmware (the “Software”); our website is located at www.BodiMetrics.com, (the “Site”) and BodiMetrics mobile application (the “App”). The Devices, Site, Software and App are collectively referred to in this Policy as the “BodiMetrics Service,” and by proceeding to use the BodiMetrics Service you consent that we may process the data that we collect from you in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Because we’re always looking for new and innovative ways to help you achieve your wellness goals, this policy may change over time, but any future changes will not affect data that was collected under a previous version of this policy. If any modifications substantially change your rights, we will send an email summarizing the changes to the address associated with your BodiMetrics account and provide notice on the Site.

If something in this policy does not make sense or if you have any questions, please contact us immediately at www.bodimetrics.com/support.

 

What Data Does BodiMetrics Collect?

When You Activate a Device :

When activating a BodiMetrics Device, you will be asked to enter information about yourself, such as birth date, height, weight and gender. We use this information to help you track your wellness metrics – for example, calories burned and distance traveled. Depending upon the specific Device you use, it can collect data such as pulse rate, blood oxygenation, the number of steps you take, your weight, your medication reminders and transmit this data to BodiMetrics App. To see the full list of data that your Device collects, visit our Products Specifications page at www.bodimetrics.com/prouductspecs

BodiMetrics collects industry standard data from everyone who visits our Sites—even if you don’t have a BodiMetrics account. This includes log data that automatically records information about your visit, such as your browser type, operating system, the URL of the page that referred you, the different actions you performed, and the IP address you used to access pages on the Site. We use this type of information to provide you with an experience that’s relevant to your location based on the IP address, to prevent Site misuse, and to ensure the Site is working properly. We also collect data from cookies. To see the full list cookies we use and how we use them, please read our Cookie Policy below.

When you sync your Device through an App or the Software, data recorded on your Device about your activity is transferred from your Device to our servers. This data is stored and used to provide the BodiMetrics Service and is associated with your account. Each time syncing occurs; we log data about the transmission. Some examples of the log data are the sync time and date, device battery level, and the IP address used when syncing.

 

When You Make Purchases From Our Store :

We do not view or store your credit card information. This is handled by our third-party payment processor.

When You Contact Us For Help :

Whenever you contact BodiMetrics for help, we collect your name and email address along with additional information you provide in your request so that we can provide you with assistance and improve the BodiMetrics Service. If you contact us when you are already logged in to your account, the web form may automatically pre-fills this information, so you don’t have to type it manually. You can also contact BodiMetrics on public forums such as Twitter or Facebook; however, we cannot maintain the privacy of your communication to us if you contact us through these channels.

BodiMetrics uses your data to provide you with the best experience possible, to help you make the most of your wellness regime, and to improve and protect the BodiMetrics Service. Here are some examples:

Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is data that includes a personal identifier like your name, email or address, or data that could reasonably be linked back to you. We will only share this data under the following circumstances:

  • With companies that are contractually engaged in providing us with services, such as order fulfillment, email management and credit card processing. These companies are obligated by contract to safeguard any PII they receive from us.
  • If we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation, valid legal process (e.g., subpoenas or warrants served on us), or governmental or regulatory request, to enforce or apply the Terms of Service or Terms of Sale, to protect the security or integrity of the BodiMetrics Service, and/or to protect the rights, property, or safety of BodiMetrics, its employees, users, or others.
  • We may disclose or transfer your PII in connection with the sale, merger, bankruptcy, sale of assets or reorganization of our company. We will notify you if a different company will receive your PII and the promises in this Privacy Policy will apply to your data as transferred to the new entity.

Other Ways You Might Share Your Data

Contests and Giveaways

BodiMetrics may offer opportunities to participate in contests, giveaways and other promotions. Any data you submit in connection with these activities will be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy, unless the rules for those offers note otherwise.

 

Surveys

Any PII you provide to BodiMetrics (or supplied by you or BodiMetrics to such third-party survey providers) in connection with these surveys will only be used in relation to that survey and as stated in this policy.

 

How Long We Save Your Data

 

We store your PII for as long as you maintain a BodiMetrics Account.

COOKIE POLICY

We are generally a healthy bunch, but some BodiMetrics employees like to eat cookies. In addition, we use cookies and other technologies like pixel tags and web beacons to improve the functionality of the BodiMetrics Service.

 

Technologies We Use

Cookies are text files that are sent by servers to web browsers and stored on your computer. They tell us which parts of the BodiMetrics Service you’ve visited so we can figure out which promotions you may like to see or to alert you to software compatibility issues.

Web beacons and pixel tags are images embedded in a webpage or email for the purpose of measuring and analyzing usage and activity. BodiMetrics, or third party service providers acting on our behalf, may use web beacons and pixel tags to help us analyze usage and improve our functionality.

Social media tools, like widgets and plug-ins, are used so you can share information from BodiMetrics on other sites such Facebook and Twitter. These interactive mini-programs collect your IP address, record the pages you visit on our Sites, and set cookies that will enable the widget to function properly. Your interactions with these widgets are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing them, not by BodiMetrics’ Privacy Policy. We also use the Facebook and Twitter pixel tags to help us understand how effective our marketing is on those sites.
