About this Policy
Vively's privacy principles
Your health data belongs to you (not us), and you can decide how it is used
: We believe you should control your own biological health data, and our goal is to make it easy for you to see, export, and delete your own information. It's also up to you to decide how your data on Vively can be used. If you don't wish to contribute your personal data for any particular purpose (for example, product improvement or metabolic health research purposes), you can opt out of that sharing by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We'll never access or use your information in ways you haven't agreed to.We respect your right to privacy and will protect your information
: We'll work to collect as little information as needed to provide a valuable service, and we will continually look for ways to collect less. We will keep your information secure by prioritising data security in every decision we make, and by ensuring that our security practices stay up-to-date.We don’t sell your data to advertisers or marketers
Where we hold personal information that was collected for a particular (primary) purpose we will generally use or disclose it only for that purpose and not for any other (secondary) purpose unless you have consented, or we are otherwise permitted or required to do so (whether under the APPs, the Act, or another law). The personal information that we collect is mainly used to enable us to operate Vively and deliver our services to you.
