What We Collect
Happitech B.V. is strongly committed to protecting the privacy of its user community. We do NOT collect or store any personally-identifying information about you such as your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address through our App. Potentially-identifying information such as your birth date remains on your iPhone/iPad and we will have no access to it.
The App requires the use of the camera on your device for video input in order to measure your heart rate. Images from the camera feed are processed locally on your iPhone or iPad and cleared immediately afterwards. We do not collect any images obtained from the camera feed.
When you send comments, questions, suggestions, or feedback to Happitech B.V. via email, and include an email address and/or contact information we may use this information to respond to you. Note that your email address and/or contact info is not linked to any of the de-indentified data we may collect as described below.
All data Happitech B.V. collects is de-identified, which means the data that by itself does not permit the identification of individual persons. Anonymous data we collect may include your age and country. We may also collect waveforms related to your heart signal obtained from the processing of the camera input.
How We Use Your Data
The Anonymous Data you provide allows us to perform accurate analysis and generate the appropriate statistics relevant to you. For example, to evaluate whether players are able to master their heart rate in the different game modes from calm to excited. Collecting the waveforms related to the heart signal allows us to continue to test new features, and refine our heart rate algorithms. We will use the Anonymous Data to better understand our users as well as to improve the content and functionality of the App.
If you contact us by e-mail, we may use the mail you provided to answer your question or resolve your problem. If you are a registered user or have voluntarily supplied your email address such as when you contact us with inquiries, Happitech B.V. may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Happitech B.V. and our products. You can always opt out by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link appended to the end of the emails.
We may conduct research on our end user’s demographics, interests and behavior based on the Anonymous Data. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and we may share this aggregated data with our affiliates, agents and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
As described above, we only collect Anonymous Data, except in the case where you send comments, questions, suggestions, or feedback to Happitech B.V. via email. Access to all user data is limited to authorized employees or contractors that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide services available in the App, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.
We will not rent or sell Personal Data to anyone. We may disclose Personal Data only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Happitech B.V., third parties or the public at large.
We take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of user data. However no system can be 100% secure, and therefore despite our best efforts, there could be unauthorized access to this data and therefore by using the App you accept this risk.
We will retain de-identified and anonymous data for an indefinite amount of time for research and development purposes. If you contacted us via email, your email will be retained for communication purposes as long as you use the App and for a reasonable time thereafter. If you believe we have personal information about you that you do not want us to have or would like to request of a copy of your personal information collected, please contact us as described below (see “Contact Us”) and we shall remove the data as you request or send you a copy as soon as is reasonably practicable.
If Happitech B.V., or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Happitech B.V. goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Happitech B.V. may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
