2.Personal Information We Collect
When you interact with the App, we may collect information – some of which may identify you – such as:
- First and last name;
- Username and password;
- Email address;
- Phone number;
- Profile photo;
- IP address;
- Unique device ID or other online identifier; and
- Personal information you choose to provide in comments, forums, and other narrative forms – such as fitness goals and recipes.
Further, if you sync your Google Fit or Apple Health account with the App, we may collect information you input through those accounts, such as:
- Nutrition information;
- Body measurements and heart rate;
- Location data; and
- Physical activity data.
To the extent the above data is capable of identifying you, we refer to it as “personal information.” We may also collect general information about the equipment you use to access the App, your operating system and browser type, the services that you use, times and dates of your interactions with the App, details of your transactions through and interactions with the App, and software event data.
3.How We Collect Information
We may collect information:
- Directly from you when you provide it, including by contributing comments or other text through member forums or our blog, setting up an account and personal profile, or participating in promotions.
- Automatically as you interact with the App, such as location, data on browsing activities and patterns, times and dates of logins, and event data.
- From third parties, including analytics providers, that we use to operate the App and its services.
- From social media platforms linked from the App, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram if you “Like,” “Follow,” or otherwise interact with our page or profile on that platform.
Testimonials. We may display personal testimonials of satisfied customers on our site in addition to other endorsements. If you wish to delete your testimonial from our App, you can contact us at email@example.com.
For Google Fit integrations, we use Google’s application programming interface or “API.” Our use of information received from Google APIs will adhere to the Google API Services User Data Policy (currently available here), including the Limited Use section of that Policy.
In-App Messaging and Sharing. Our App allows you to share information (including personal information) in several ways, including through in-app messages and by allowing “Friends” or “Comadres” in the App to see certain details about you. For example, you can allow your Comadres to see your Esos/achievements, favorite recipes, favorite activities, and daily steps, distance, and calories burned. These features allow you and other users to communicate with and support one-another. You can also share certain information about yourself and your achievements outside of the App by clicking the “Share” button in the App. For example, you may want to share a daily calorie-burn accomplishment with family members via email.
4.How We Use Your Personal Information
We may use or disclose your information for one or more of the following business purposes:
- Managing our App and presenting its contents to you, and improving the App’s performance – including your experience on the App when you return.
- Providing the information, goods, and services you’ve requested or agreed to receive.
- Providing notifications, including push-notifications.
- Enabling you to interact with App features.
- Enabling you to participate in promotions through the App.
- Administering your account.
- Informing you about new features of the App.
- Marketing our products and services to you and sending you newsletters.
- For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information.
5.How We Share Information
Friends/Comadres. In the App, you will have the option to become “Friends” or “Comadres” with other App users. You may adjust the ability of other users to send you Comadre requests, and the information you share with Comadres in the App’s Sharing & Privacy settings. By default, we will share the following information about you with your Comadres:
- Favorite recipes;
- Favorite activities; and
- Daily steps, distance, and calories burned.
We will also share your other Comadres’ names and profile pictures with your Comadres. The sharing of these names and profile pictures with your Comadres may not be changed or deactivated in the Sharing & Privacy settings.
Third Parties Providing Services on Our Behalf. We use third parties to host the App, design and operate the App features, and perform administrative, analytics, advertising, and communications services. Services these parties provide include enabling us to send you email newsletters and marketing materials, and providing information to us about the use of the App and viewing of our content. We may disclose your personal information to these companies so they can carry out these business purposes on our behalf. These third parties may have access to personal information collected through our App, but such access is limited to the information reasonably necessary for the third party to perform its limited function for us. We also require these third parties to protect the privacy of your personal information and not use or disclose your personal information for any purpose other than providing us with the products or services for which we contracted.
Currently, we use the services listed below for analytics and ad-serving. Note that they may set and access their own cookies and web beacons on your device, and they may have access to related usage information. We provide links where you can access additional information on their practices.
Promotions. We may offer promotions through the App that may require registration. By participating in a promotion, you agree to the terms, conditions and/or official rules that govern that promotion, including terms related to the disclosure of your personal information.
Business Transfer. We reserve the right to disclose and transfer all information related to the App, including, without limitation, your personal information and usage information: (y) to a subsequent owner, co-owner, or operator of the App or applicable database; or (z) in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, reorganization, divestiture, restructuring, the sale of substantially all of our equity interests and/or assets, or other corporate change, including, without limitation, during the course of any due diligence process or during any bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding.
6.Sale of Personal Information
We have not sold, and—except in connection with a business transfer (described above)—we will not sell your personal information.
7. Links to Other Websites, Social Media Platforms, Mobile Applications, and Services
Personal information is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public. Only those of our employees and agents who need access to your personal information to do their jobs are allowed access, each having signed confidentiality agreements or otherwise subject to a duty of confidentiality. In some instances, personal information is encrypted during storage and transmission, and our App uses the https protocol.
While we make reasonable efforts to safeguard your personal information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or information we transmit to you from the App, and you assume all related risks.
We regularly review the information that we collect and store. We generally retain your personal information until you request that we delete it. In certain cases, we may be required to continue to retain your data to comply with applicable law or in connection with a legal claim.
9.Access Outside the United States
The App is not intended to be accessed or used outside of the United States. It is hosted on servers in the United States. Any personal information you provide to us will be processed and stored on servers in the United States, the laws of which may be deemed by other countries to have inadequate data protection. Accordingly, if you are located outside the United States, you consent and continue to consent to the processing and storage of such data in the United States.
10.Children Under 18
The App is not intended for children under 18, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 18. If you are under 18, please do not use the App or submit any personal information through the App.
If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 18 has provided their personal information to us, please contact us and we will delete that information.
11.Do Not Track
Some browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” (DNT) feature that, when turned on, signals to websites and online services that you do not want to be tracked. At this time, the App does not respond to DNT signals.
12.Your Choices and Privacy Rights; Our Contact Information
Your Choices. If you choose not to provide personal information, you may be unable to access or use the App or certain App features. For example, if you do not provide your name (or sign up using your Google account that provides that information) you will be unable to create an online account.
Your Privacy Rights. You may access and update or correct the personal information you provided to set up your account, or terminate your account, at any time through your account. You can also adjust your privacy and notification settings through your account. If you would like to obtain a copy of all personal information gathered by the App, terminate your account, or if you would like to update, correct, or delete your information, you may submit a request to us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that we cannot delete your personal information without also deleting your account. Please also note that personal information you provide through interactive features of the App – such as through in-app messages or sharing with other users, may continue to be retained by other users indefinitely and may be shared publicly by those users.
Depending on the law that applies where you live, you may have additional rights, such as the right to delete your information, object to processing of your personal information, and the right to request restrictions on such processing, or request that we send your information to another organization of your choice (where technically feasible).
Please note that we may ask you to verify your identity before responding to any request. In any event, we will not discriminate against you for exercising your privacy rights.
