Information we collect

When you use our Services, we collect the following types of information.

Information you provide us

Account information

Some information is required to create an account on our Services, such as your name, email address, password, date of birth, gender, height, weight, and in some cases your mobile telephone number. This is the only information you have to provide to create an account with us. You may also choose to provide other types of information, such as a profile photo, biography, country information, and community username. 

Additional information

To help improve your experience or enable certain features of the Services, you may choose to provide us with additional information, like your logs for weight, sleep, or mood; an alarm; and messages on discussion boards or to your friends on the Services.

You may also connect with friends on the Services or invite friends who have not yet joined by providing their email addresses, accessing social networking accounts, or using the contact list on your mobile device. 

If you contact us or participate in a survey, contest, or promotion, we collect the information you submit such as your name, contact information, and message or other questionnaire input.

Payment and card information

Some devices may support payments and transactions via third parties. If you activate this feature, you must provide certain information for identification and verification, such as your name, credit, debit or other card number, card expiration date, and CVV code. This information is encrypted and sent to your card network, which upon approval sends back to your device a token, which is a set of random digits for engaging in transactions without exposing your card number. For your convenience, we store the last four digits of your card number and your card issuer’s name and contact information. You can remove the token from your account using your account settings. We do not store your transaction history.

If you purchase any item on our website, you provide your payment information, including your name, credit or debit card number, card expiration date, CVV code, and billing address. We do not store this payment information. We store your shipping address to fulfill your order. Note that third-party payment processors may retain this information in accordance with their own privacy policies and terms.  

Coaching Services

Our coaching services are a platform for you to communicate with a health or wellness coach (“Coaching Services”). Coaches may be provided by third parties, as appropriate. If you use our Coaching Services, we collect information about such use, including the plan, goals, and actions you record with your coach, your calendar events, communications with your coach, notes your coach records about you, and other information submitted by you or your coach. 

Information we receive from your use on our services

Device information

Your device collects data to estimate a variety of metrics like the number of steps you take, the time you spend in different phases of walking, the characteristics of your gait, your distance traveled, weight, active minutes, falls and fall and ulceration risks. The data collected varies depending on which device you use. When your device syncs with our applications or software, data recorded on your device is transferred from your device to our servers.  

Usage information

When you access or use our Services, we receive certain usage or network activity information. This includes information about your interaction with the Services, for example, when you view or search content, install applications or software, create or log into your account, pair your device to your account, or open or interact with an application on your device. 

Information we receive from third parties

If you choose to connect your account on our Services to your account on another service, we may receive information from the other service. For example, if you connect to Facebook or Google, we may receive information like your name, profile picture, age range, language, email address, and friend list. You may also choose to grant us access to your exercise or activity data from another service. You can stop sharing the information from the other service with us by removing our access to that other service.

We may partner with third parties that offer our Services to their customers and employees directly or through intermediary providers, such as clinics. In such cases, those third parties or the intermediary providers may supply us with your name, email address, or similar information (like a telephone number or subscriber ID) so that we can invite you to participate or determine your eligibility for particular benefits, such as discounts or free services. 

How we use information 

We use the information we collect for the following purposes. 

Provide and maintain the services 

Using the information we collect, we are able to deliver the Services to you and honor our Terms of Service contract with you. For example, we need to use your information to provide you, or your clinician, with a dashboard tracking your activity, foot and walking health, and other trends; to enable the community features of the Services; and to give you customer support.  

For the Services’ community features, we may use your information to help you find and connect with other users and to allow other users to find and connect with you. For example, your account contact information allows other users to add you as a friend.   

If you use the Coaching Services, we use your information to connect you with coaches, allow you to communicate with them through our Services, and help you achieve your goals to lead a healthier, more active life. For example, the goals that you provide allow you to develop a personal plan and set of actions in consultation with your coach.  

Improve, personalize and develop the services 

We use the information we collect to improve and personalize the Services and to develop new ones. For example, we use the information to troubleshoot and protect against errors; perform data analysis and testing; conduct research and surveys; and develop new features and Services.  

We also use your information to make inferences and show you more relevant content. Here are some examples: 

  • Information like your height, weight, gender, and age allows us to improve the accuracy of your movement and activity statistics like the distance you traveled and the pressure exerted through your feet.
  • We may personalize activity goals for you based on the goals you previously set and your historical movement or activity data. 

Communicate with you 

We use your information when needed to send you Service notifications and respond to you when you contact us. We also use your information to promote new features or products that we think you would be interested in. You can control marketing communications and most Service notifications by using your notification preferences in account settings or via the “Unsubscribe” link in an email.  

Promote safety and security 

We use the information we collect to promote the safety and security of the Services, our users, and other parties. For example, we may use the information to authenticate users, facilitate secure payments, protect against fraud and abuse, respond to a legal request or claim, conduct audits, and enforce our terms and policies.  

We use cookies and similar technologies for the purposes described above. For more information, please read our Cookie Use statement. 

How information is shared 

We never sell the personal information of our users. We do not share your personal information except in the limited circumstances described below. 

When you agree or direct us to share 

You may direct us to disclose your information to others, such as when you use our community features, and other social tools. For certain information, we provide you with privacy preferences in account settings and other tools to control how your information is visible to other users of the Services. Just remember that if you choose to participate in a challenge, information like your profile photo, total activity in the challenge, personal statistics, and achievements, is not governed by your privacy preferences and will be visible to all other challenge participants. 

You may also direct us to share your information in other ways, for example, when you give a third-party application access to your account, or give your clinician access to information. Remember that their use of your information will be governed by their privacy policies and terms. You can revoke your consent to share with third-party applications programs by emailing us at privacy@walkwithpath.com. 

For external processing  

We transfer information to our corporate affiliates, service providers, and other partners who process it for us, based on our instructions, and in compliance with this policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures. These partners provide us with services globally, including for customer support, information technology, payments, sales, marketing, data analysis, research, and surveys. 

For legal reasons or to prevent harm 

We may preserve or disclose information about you to comply with a law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request; to assert legal rights or defend against legal claims; or to prevent, detect, or investigate illegal activity, fraud, abuse, violations of our terms, or threats to the security of the Services or the physical safety of any person. 

Please note: Our policy is to notify you of legal process seeking access to your information, such as search warrants, court orders, or subpoenas, unless we are prohibited by law from doing so. In cases where a court order specifies a non-disclosure period, we provide delayed notice after the expiration of the non-disclosure period. Exceptions to our notice policy include exigent or counterproductive circumstances, for example, when there is an emergency involving a danger of death or serious physical injury to a person. 

We may share non-personal information that is aggregated or de-identified so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify an individual. We may disclose such information publicly and to third parties, for example, in public reports about foot health, exercise and activity, to partners under agreement with us, or as part of the community benchmarking information we provide to users of our Services. 

If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of assets, we will continue to take measures to protect the confidentiality of personal information and give affected users notice before transferring any personal information to a new entity.
