Privacy Statement And Policy
Collection of Personal Information
Types of Information Collected
User Information. In addition to the above personal information, we collect standard information about Karrot Health users such as:
Personal data, including, birthdate, height and weight, and gender.
Email address and Karrot Health Password.
Any additional information relating to you and your use of the Websites, Apps or Karrot Health Services that you provide to use directly through the Websites, Apps or Karrot Health Services.
Calorie data collected from wearable devices and other sensor equipment.
Information collected from promotions with third party companies.
Your information may also be supplemented with additional information from other sources, including publicly available sources.
Use of Personal Information
We will treat the information we collect as confidential. We will not share Personally Identifiable Information about you without your consent. We may share information collected from you that does not identify you or an individual with third parties, including advertisers and potential business partners.
We may also use or share data that does not identify a user to:
Fulfill the services and products you request from us;
Operate and improve the Websites, App and Karrot Health Services available to you through Karrot Health, including developing new features and products;
Communicate with you, respond to your requests, and manage our relationship;
Personalize the products and services provided to you;
Measure performance of the products and Karrot Health Services; and
Send you marketing notices including promotions of our products and services.
We may disclose your personal information when we reasonably believe that it is required by law, a duly authorized court order, or legal process and to protect and defend the rights and interests of Karrot Health, its affiliates, suppliers, or users. If we are required to disclose your information, we will attempt to provide you with advance notice, unless we are prohibited from doing so by law.
For data auditing purposes only, we disclose your personal information (name and work email) to your employer/insurance company that is providing you with Karrot Health’s services. Your employer/insurer will be able to see how many calories you have burned, and whether or not you reached the set calorie goal.
If your company chooses to add a competition, event, leaderboard, or other social component to their use of Karrot Health’s services, your coworkers may be able to see your activity. This information may contain your first name, last initial, and calories burned. This information may be in the aggregate based on groups, or individuals. For example, they will see “Team A is leading with 30,000 calories burned” or “Jane S. is in the lead with most calories burned this month”.
In some circumstances we may use third party contractors to perform these services on our behalf. In such circumstances, we will only provide the contractor with the information needed to perform the services (for example, name and address if a contractor is delivering a product to you), and all contractors will be required to agree to confidentiality obligations with respect to your personal information.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Karrot Health will not use or disclose to third parties user data gathered from the Apple, Inc. Healthkit framework or Healthkit API for advertising or other use-based data mining purposes other than improving health, or for the purpose of health research. In no event will any information be collected from Healthkit users for use by third parties in compliance with this section without obtaining user consent.
Control of Personal information and Opt-Out Options
Karrot Health values the accuracy of the information you provide. You can confirm, change, or update personal information you have provided to us by contacting us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to opt-out of communications from Karrot Health, you can do so by emailing your request to email@example.com. If you change your mind, you can opt-in again, by emailing this same address. When you opt-out of promotional communications from us, you may still receive service messages and legally mandated notices.
Security of the Information We Collect
We take commercially reasonable precautions in an effort to protect your information against security breaches. For example, we store personal information and data in a secure server, and we use industry-standard firewalls and security software design to protect the security and integrity of your Personal Information. However, this is not a guarantee that your information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed. By using the Websites, Apps and Karrot Health, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.
Protection of Children's Privacy
Karrot Health is a general interest website, and we do not knowingly collect any personal information from children. If you are under 18, you are not permitted to use the Websites or App. Consistent with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), the Websites and App are not intended for use by anyone under the age of 18 (COPPA's minimum protections are for minors 13 years of age or under). Karrot Health does not knowingly collect personal information from children through this Web Site or App.
Links to Other Websites
Our Websites may contain links to other websites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of these other sites, and we encourage you to review the policies of each site you use. We cannot control the actions of such third parties or be held responsible for their use of any information that you provide directly to them.
Users from Outside the United States
Karrot Health and the Karrot Health servers are located in the United States and are subject to the applicable state and federal laws of the United States. If you use Karrot Health, you consent to the use and disclosure of information in accordance with this privacy statement and subject to such laws.
DO NOT TRACK DISCLOSURE
Karrot Health does not track its customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, your browser may be able to set the DNT signal so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.
We welcome your input on our privacy statement. If you have any questions or suggestions regarding our privacy statement, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
