The Purpose of the Policy
We take your privacy seriously. We provide this Policy so that you understand how we treat the information that you provide us as you use the Service (“Collected Information“).
This Policy applies only to information collected through the Service. We reserve the right to change this Policy at any time. Any material changes will take effect immediately as soon as we give you notice of them, which we may do by means including but not limited to issuing an email to the email address listed by registered users and/or posting the revised Policy on this page. Your continued use of the Service after any modification means that you acknowledge the change and consent to the practices that we disclose in the Policy.
The R&D Beta Platform
How We Collect Information
We collect information in these ways:
User-Provided Information. We offer users the option in the Apps to manually enter free-form text as daily journal entries. We do not receive this information; it is stored locally on your
mobile device, and the manufacturer of your device or the developer of the device’s operating system (Apple’s iOS or Google’s Android) may access or use that information pursuant to their own privacy
Users may opt-in to connect the Apps to the Google Fit service to synchronize their Google Fit step data, workout data, sleep data, and weight data for viewing within the Apps. Google Fit data is displayed in the Apps but remains stored only in Google Fit and is never saved in the context of the Apps. Google Fit data is never shared by the Apps.
- Automatically Collected Information. When you use the Service, we may automatically collect or generate information including but not limited to the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address of your computer; web pages that you access within the Service; geographic information; a unique user ID; the type of browser, device or operating system you use; referring services or websites; search information; and usage and browsing information.
We refer to all of the information described in this section as “Collected Information.”
How We Use Collected Information
We use Collected Information to deliver services to you and for communicating with you about the Service. If you are a beta tester who has affirmatively opted in to our R&D Beta Platform, then you will provide us with the information requested in the R&D Beta Platform. Otherwise, User-Provided Information is stored locally on your mobile device, and we do not receive it or have access to it. We may also provide you the option, if you affirmatively opt in, to export and transmit your User-Provided Information to a Third-Party Service of your choice such as Google Drive, Dropbox or iCloud, and in that case, we still will not receive or have access to that information.
How We Disclose Collected Information to Others
We will not sell, rent, license or disclose Collected Information to anyone, except:
- where necessary for us to work with third-party companies that we use to provide the Service (“Third-Party Services,” detailed below);
- in response to a court order or where required by law;
- to disclose to another company in the course of a business acquisition, merger or sale of assets; or
- to share with our partners with whom we may jointly develop new or improved features or products.
We use various Third-Party Services to operate the Service. These include Google AdWords, Google Analytics, Google Drive, Google Forms, Dropbox, iCloud, Mailchimp and Statcounter and may include others in the future.
Third-Party Services store and use Collected Information pursuant to their own privacy and security policies. By using our Service, you consent to our providing Collected Information with Third-Party Services to be used in accordance with their own privacy and security policies as they exist today and as they may change in the future.
For more information about how Google’s services use your Collected Information, see “ How Google uses information from sites or apps that use our services.”
We use reasonable efforts to protect your Collected Information from unauthorized access, but we cannot guarantee that your Collected Information will be free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers. By using the Service, you (a) consent to our using your Collected Information as described in this Policy notwithstanding this risk; (b) waive any claims against us relating to the interception, use or disclosure of Confidential Information by third parties unauthorized by us; and (c) agree to notify us promptly if you suspect any unauthorized usage of Confidential Information. For more information on protecting your privacy, please visit www.ftc.gov/privacy.
To access or use the Service, you must be at least 18 years old and have the requisite power and authority to understand and consent to the practices described in this Policy.
“Do Not Track” Technology
If you use Do-Not-Track tools to prevent websites and software products from tracking your online behavior across websites, please be aware that we do not change the way the Service works (as described in this Policy) in response to requests not to be tracked. You may, however, be able to disable certain tracking signals used by individual Third-Party Services, which you may do by accessing those services.
Cookies and other storage technologies
When you use the Service, we or our Third-Party Services may use tools to collect information about how you use it. These tools may include cookies, web beacons or other storage technologies that store users’ IDs or passwords to personalize web pages that they see and provide website analytics. We may also use these tools in advertising the Service. You are welcome to opt out of our use of these tools with you, and you can learn more about how do to so at the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Webchoices page, European Advertising Standards Alliance (EASA)’s Framework and the Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer Opt Out page.
No Rights of Third Parties
This Policy does not create rights enforceable by third parties, nor does it require disclosure of any information relating to users of the Service.
Limitation of Warranties
We make no representations, warranties or promises about the security of Collected Information except as stated expressly in this Policy or where required by law.
