WHAT TYPES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE GATHER?
Personal Information. When you sign up for a particular Service that requires registration or an account (collectively, any type of account you may create through HEARTSYNC/SAFER is referred to in these Terms as “Account”), we ask you to submit certain personal information. Personal information is any information that identifies you personally, either alone or in combination with other information available to us. Personal information may include, but is not limited to:
- Your name, username, email address, date of birth, gender, and/or Account password;
- The phone number assigned to your mobile device, along with other pertinent information concerning your device, including the name of your wireless carrier/provider and any device identifier;
- Certain information concerning your health and physical characteristics; and
- Any other personally identifiable information you share through the Services.
You can connect to the full suite of products and Services through a single point of sign-on—your Account.
You may purchase products from us, which we may offer from time to time, without registering an Account. If you choose to check-out as a guest, we will collect limited personal information from you in order to fulfill your order. For example, when you place an order for a product, we may need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number, and expiration date. This information is required so that we can process and fulfill your order, send an order or shipping confirmation, as well as notify you of your order status.
Social Media Connection. We may from time to time enable you to log in to the Services via various social media or social networking services such as Facebook or Twitter (“Social Networking Services”) in order to offer you a richer and more personalized experience with our Services. If you do choose to connect your social media account to our Services, we will collect certain personal information that you have provided to that Social Networking Service. For example, when you log in with your Facebook credentials, we may collect personal information from your Facebook profile, such as your email address, profile picture, and friend list.
Payment Method Information. For certain Services, we request that you furnish certain financial information, including but not limited to, credit card or other payment account information. All financial transactions with HEARTSYNC LLP are performed on secure servers that meet Payment Card Industry standards. We DO NOT store your credit card information.
Location Information. Some Services use location-based components. To provide these features, we or our partners and licensees may collect, use, and share precise location information, including the real-time geographic location of your mobile device. For some third-party partners this location information may be shared automatically. For others, such as Facebook, location information will only be shared with your explicit permission or if you choose to share it via the device. Location information includes, but is not limited to, any information we derive in order to identify your geographic position. This information may be collected from your wireless carrier, certain third-party service providers, or directly from the mobile device with which you use or access our Services. The collection and tracking of your location information may occur even when our Services, including any mobile application, are not actively open and running. Your location information, however, is only displayed and shared in accordance with your established privacy settings.
We may combine the personal information and/or the location information that you provide via your Account with information from other Services or third parties in order to enhance your experience and/or to improve the overall quality of the Services. For certain Services, we may give you an opportunity to opt out from providing or sharing your personal information.
Other Information You Provide. When you employ our Services, we may receive certain non-personally identifiable information about your use of the Services. Such information, which may be collected passively using various technologies or via submission of data by devices you may have configured to work with the Services, cannot be used to specifically identify you. We may store such information ourselves, or it may be included in databases owned and maintained by our respective affiliates, agents, and/or service providers. We may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to the Services, the number of visitors to each page of the Services, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. No personal information is available or used in this process.
Aggregated Information. To better serve you and improve the Services, we may conduct research on demographics, interests, and behavior based on personal information and other information provided via the Services. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and we may share this aggregated information with our affiliates, agents, and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. We may also disclose aggregated information in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
Cookies. A “cookie” is a small data file stored by your web browser on your computer’s hard drive. It allows us to recognize your computer (but not specifically who is using it) when you visit one of the Services by associating the identification numbers in the cookie with other user information you have provided us. That user information is stored on our secured database. Some cookies will remain on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device for the duration of your browsing session, while others will remain for longer periods of time or will remain unless and until deleted by you. You may be able to configure your browser to accept or reject all or some cookies (other than Flash cookies) or notify you when a cookie is set. Each browser is different, so please check the “Help” or “Settings” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences. Please note that some of our Services or features may not function properly or at all if cookies are disabled or blocked.
Some third-party service providers may use “Flash cookies,” also known as Local Shared Objects or LSOs. Flash cookies are saved on your computer in the same way as other cookies, but they cannot be rejected, disabled, turned off, opted out of, or deleted in the same way as regular cookies. For information on how to manage and remove Flash cookies, please visit: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/disable-local-shared-objects-flash.html or http://epic.org/privacy/cookies/flash.html.
Pixel Tags. “Pixel tags” (also known as “tracking pixels” or “web beacons”) are small graphic files that allow us to monitor the use of our Services. The use of pixel tags is industry standard technology used by most major web sites. A pixel tag can collect information such as the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the tag appears; the Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) of the page on which the pixel tag appears; the time the page containing the pixel tag was viewed; the type of browser that fetched the pixel tag; and the identification number of any cookie on the computer previously placed by that server. One of the ways in which we use pixel tags is through a third-party service provider to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet. They may collect anonymous (other than your IP address) information about your visits to and interaction with our Services. They may also use this information about your visits to the Services and other websites and applications to target advertisements for goods and services. If you would like more information about online marketing practices and to know your choices about not having this information used by our third party service providers, please visit www.networkadvertising.org/choices.

This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

LINKS TO THIRD PARTY WEBSITES
WHAT ARE OUR SECURITY POLICIES?
We use Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”), the industry-standard encryption technology for internet transmission of your personal information. When the letters “http” in the URL change to “https,” the “s” indicates you are in a secure area employing SSL; also, your browser may give a pop-up message stating that you are about to enter or leave a secure area. Using a browser that is SSL capable will ensure that your information is encoded/encrypted when it is sent over the Internet.
Ultimately, if you register an Account, your Account and personal information is protected by the password you provided when you created your Account or updated your password while logged into your Account. Always keep this password and login information private and never share it with anyone. Also, remember to sign off your Account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit. This is to ensure that others cannot access your Account, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet and no data storage can be 100% secure. Consequently, while we endeavor to safeguard your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure, we do not warrant or guarantee the security of any personal information you transmit to, from or through our Services. We will notify you in the event we become aware of a security breach involving your personal information stored by or for us. By disclosing your email address to us for any reason, you expressly consent to receive electronic notice from us in the event of such a security breach.
SPECIAL NOTE TO PARENTS
The Services are intended solely for users who are at least the greater of 18 years of age or the age of majority in the user’s jurisdiction, or older (the “Permitted Age”), and any and any registration, use or access to the Services by anyone under the Permitted Age is unauthorized, unlicensed, and in violation of these Terms.
If you are under the Permitted Age and attempt to use the Services, we may delete any content or information that you have posted on or provided through the Services, and/or prohibit you from using or accessing the Services (or any portion, aspect or feature of the Services) for any reason or no reason, at any time in our sole discretion, with or without notice, including without limitation if we have any reason to believe that you are under the Permitted Age.
We take the privacy of children seriously. The Services are expressly not directed at children and our Terms prohibit children under the Permitted Age from registering for or using the Services. Accordingly, we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 through our Services, and we request that children under the age of 13 not submit any personal information through our Services.
