We pledge to respect your privacy, to be transparent about our data practices, to keep your data safe, to never sell your personal data, to let you decide how your information is shared, and to only collect data that helps us improve our products and services.

If any modifications substantially change your rights, we will send an email summarizing the changes to the address associated with your Aseema account and provide notice on the Site.
And remember, we’re here to help. If something in this policy does not make sense or if you have any questions, please contact us at privacy@Aseemahealth.com.

- When We Collect Data
ACTIVATE A DEVICE
When activating an Aseema service, you will be asked to download the Aseema App or install Software and enter information about yourself, such as height, weight and gender. We use this information to personalize your health stats. Depending upon the specific Device you use, it can collect data such as the number of steps you take, your weight, measure your sleep quality and transmit this data to Aseema.
CREATE AN ASEEMA ACCOUNT
If you want to access data collected through Aseema services, you must create a Aseema account. When you create a Aseema account, we ask for some personal information, including your email address and date of birth. An Aseema account user number and name, will be used to log-into your account. We do not display your email address to other users. Instead, others will see the name or nickname you enter in your profile settings.
Aseema may also give you the option to also create your Aseema account using a different credential such as a Facebook or Google+ account. We will ask permission to access basic information from that account, such as your name, profile picture, and friend list. You can stop sharing that information with us at any time by removing Aseema’s access to that account. We will access your phone’s contact list for the purpose of letting you identify contacts who are Aseema users. We do not store your phone’s contact list, and it is deleted immediately after it is used for this purpose.
ADD INFO TO YOUR ACCOUNT
You can customize your Aseema experience by adding other types of information to your account, such as entering a food log or setting an alarm, personalizing your profile with photos, participating in discussion boards, or sending messages to your Aseema friends. Whenever you add this type of data, we collect it and store it in your Aseema account.
VISIT OUR SITES
Aseema collects industry standard data from everyone who visits our Sites—even if you don’t have a Aseema account. This includes log data that automatically records information about your visit, such as your browser type, operating system, the URL of the page that referred you, the different actions you performed, and the IP address you used to access pages on the Site. We use this type of information to provide you with an experience that’s relevant to your location based on the IP address, to prevent Site misuse, and to ensure the Site is working properly. We also collect data from cookies.
SYNC YOUR DEVICE
When you sync your Device through the App or the Software, data recorded on your Device about your activity is transferred from your Device or your Device manufacturer’s website to our servers. This data is stored and used to provide the Aseema Service and is associated with your account. Each time a sync occurs, we log data about the transmission. Some examples of the log data are the sync time and date, device battery level, and the IP address used when syncing.
BUY FROM OUR MARKET PLACE
We do not view or store your credit card information. This is handled by our third-party payment processor. We store your shipping address so we can process your order through our fulfillment partner. If you are logged into your Aseema account when you purchase something on our Site or Mobile app, we associate that order with your Aseema account.
Whenever you contact Aseema for help, we collect your name and email address along with additional information you provide in your request so that we can provide you with assistance and improve the Aseema Service. If you contact us when you are already logged in to your account, the web form automatically pre-fills this information, so you don’t have to type it manually.
To help you stay motivated on your fitness journey, Aseema lets you add friends who are already Aseema users or invite friends who have not yet joined. You can add friends in several ways, such as by providing their email addresses, or by accessing social networking accounts or from the contact list on your phone. When you share your friends’ contact information with us to add them as a friend, we will only use it for this purpose. We do not store your phone’s contact list, and it is deleted immediately after it is used for this purpose.
We only collect information about you when you’re interacting with Aseema Services.
Why We Collect Data
Aseema uses your data to provide you with the best experience possible, to help you make the most of your health, and to improve and protect the Aseema Service. Here are some examples:
Height and weight are used to calculate your BMI.
Contact information is used to send you notifications, allow other Aseema users to add you as a friend, and to inform you about new features or products we think you would be interested in. Please see “Can I Opt-out Of Receiving Aseema Emails?” for information on how you can opt-out of future communications.
Data and logs are used in research to understand and improve the Aseema Device and Aseema Service; to troubleshoot the Aseema Service; to detect and protect against error, fraud or other criminal activity; and to enforce the Aseema Terms of Service.
De-identified data that does not identify you may be used to inform the health community about trends and for our marketing and promotional use.
What Kinds of Data We Share
DATA THAT COULD IDENTIFY YOU
Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is data that includes a personal identifier like your name, email or address, or data that could reasonably be linked back to you. We will only share this data under the following circumstances:
With companies that are contractually engaged in providing us with services, such as order fulfillment, email management and credit card processing. These companies are obligated by contract to safeguard any PII they receive from us.
If we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation, valid legal process (e.g., subpoenas or warrants served on us), or governmental or regulatory request, to enforce or apply the Terms of Service or Terms of Sale, to protect the security or integrity of the Aseema Service, and/or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Aseema, its employees, users, or others. If we are going to release your data, we will do our best to provide you with notice in advance by email, unless we are prohibited by law from doing so.
DATA THAT YOU DIRECT US TO SHARE
Ways You Might Share Your Data
DEFAULT VISIBILITY SETTINGS
The privacy settings on new Aseema accounts are set to reveal minimal data about you with the purpose of getting you active and involved with the Aseema Service. You can adjust your privacy in your settings feature on the Aseema app or site.
ASEEMA SOCIAL TOOLS
Aseema provides many ways for you to share data with other Aseema users, such as with the Leaderboard, Challenges, or by posting comments to the Aseema community message boards. When you interact with others in these ways, you will be displaying your data based upon the visibility settings in your Aseema account settings. Always check specific policies associated with any Challenge to understand what data will be visible to other participants.
To post to Aseema community message boards, you’ll be asked to create a community username that’s separate from your Aseema profile name. This community username will be posted next to any comments you publish on community message boards. Other information, like a profile photo that you’ve added to your Aseema account will also be visible on message boards, depending on your Aseema account settings.
CONTESTS AND GIVEAWAYS
Aseema may also ask you to participate in surveys (processed by Aseema or third parties) that help us understand your use of the Aseema Service. Any PII you provide to Aseema (or supplied by you or Aseema to such third-party survey providers) in connection with these surveys will only be used in relation to that survey and as stated in this policy.
How To Edit or Modify Data
Data that you provide to Aseema through the Site can be modified from your dashboard or Aseema account preferences. If you remove data from your Aseema account, it will no longer appear to you or others who use the Aseema Service. Backups of that data will remain associated with your Aseema account and in our archive servers.
How To Deactivate Your Aseema Account
You can deactivate your Aseema account by contacting Customer Support. When you do, data that can identify you will be removed from the Aseema Service, including but not limited to your email, name, photo(s), friends list and links to sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Backup copies of this data will be removed from our server based upon an automated schedule, which means it may persist in our archive for a short period.
Aseema’s Policies For Children
Aseema is not directed at persons under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect any PII from children under 13. If you are aware of a user under the age of 13 using Aseema, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I Opt-out Of Receiving Aseema Emails?
Of course! You can opt-out of receiving emails from Aseema, by changing the notification preferences in your account settings or by unsubscribing via the “Unsubscribe” link in any Aseema email. Opting-out of these emails will not end transmission of important service-related emails that are necessary to your use of the Aseema Service.
