STATEMENT OF PRIVACY PRACTICES
The following is Humetrix’s full statement of privacy practices for its Tensio mobile application (the "App"). A shorter notice based on the PHR Model Privacy Notice is available at HERE.
Humetrix is dedicated to protecting the privacy rights of users of the App. Our policies with respect to the handling of personal information with respect to this App are described within this Statement of Privacy Practices.
We may change, add, or remove portions of this Statement of Privacy Practices at any time, and such changes shall become effective immediately upon posting. A USER’S CONTINUED USE OF THE APP FOLLOWING THE POSTING OF CHANGES TO THIS STATEMENT OF PRIVACY PRACTICES WILL MEAN THAT THE USER ACCEPTS THOSE CHANGES.Information We Collect, Why We Collect It and Who Sees It
Humetrix automatically collects technical data and related information about the user’s device, operating system and application software that is gathered periodically to facilitate the provision of application updates, product support and other services to the user of the App. This information does not personally identify the user.
Information We Do Not Collect
Humetrix does not collect or store individually identifiable health information or other personally identifiable information, such as names, telephone numbers, addresses, or personal health information from users. Information entered into the App or retrieved by the App from another application or device is stored locally on the user’s smartphone or tablet and is not accessible by Humetrix.
When a user downloads the App, the user will be prompted to allow the App to access certain personally identifiable information in the Apple Health application. By way of example, this information may include dietary information (such as sodium and potassium intake), activity information (such as steps taken ), certain information about the user’s body (such as height, weight, and body mass index), certain vital information (such as diastolic blood pressure, systolic blood pressure, and heart rate), and demographic information (such as gender and date of birth). The App also locally connects to the Humetrix iBlueButton application when also used by the Tensio app user and accesses certain personally identifiable information (such as medications or conditions) that is potentially relevant to hypertension management. Users may enter personally identifiable information into the App. For example, a user can enter his or her medical conditions,, or medication information. A user can also set his or her targets or goals with guidance from their health care provider. For example, a user can set a target weight, blood pressure, or activity level.
A user may also be able to transmit information in the App to another application or device. Humetrix does not collect personally identifiable information related to these transactions.
Humetrix does not collect personally identifiable information about a user’s online activities over time and across third-party Web sites or online services. The App does not collect information about the location of a user’s mobile device. The App is not supported via advertising and does not use the data it collects through the App for advertising purposes.
Based on the user’s settings, the App will push notifications to the user. These notifications can be changed through the App’s settings. The user also can disallow the App to push any notifications by modifying the permissions within the user’s smartphone or tablet’s settings.
Managing Your Information
A user may delete his or her personally identifiable information in the App by uninstalling the App. A user may also edit or delete personally identifiable information in the App that was entered by the user or collected from the Humetrix iBlueButton application.
A user may also change the permissions within the Apple Health application to change the types of information that can be retrieved by the App. Please note that some personally identifiable information may be required in order for the App to function properly.
We do not knowingly solicit data from or market to children under the age of 13.
Users of the iPhone version of the App may choose to backup information in the App to the iCloud server. No backup data is stored by Humetrix.
It is the user’s responsibility to protect the personal information that resides on his or her smartphone. Users should protect access to their iPhone with a strong passcode or the Touch ID biometric identifier to prevent unauthorized use of his or her smartphone, which may lead to unauthorized access to the App and any information accessible through the App.
Even with the above described security, Humetrix cannot guarantee that a user’s information will be 100% protected. For example, a user’s personal information may be accessed if the user’s iPhone t is lost or stolen and an unauthorized party gains access to the user’s phone. Users enter individually identifiable health information and other personally identifiable information into the App at their own risk and should take appropriate steps to maintain the security of their iPhone, such as by choosing a passcode that is not easily guessed or by using the Touch ID feature of their iPhone.
