BevWatch has been designed with your privacy in mind. To keep us from collecting any personally identifiable information, we deidentify and anonymize the data collected by BevWatch. As a result, if you delete the app or re-download the app on a new device, you will not have access to any of your historical data unless it is kept in Apple’s Health app (premium version). (For information on Apple’s Health app, please see, https://www.apple.com/ios/health/.) We may aggregate and share the deidentified or anonymized data with third parties.
The App is not directed toward children under 16 years of age, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 16 years of age. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 16 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 16, please contact us at email@example.com.
We collect basic demographic, environmental, and activity-related information to suggest and/or track your hydration goals. To keep us from collecting any personally identifiable information, we deidentify or anonymize the data collected by BevWatch. We maintain the deidentification or anonymization and do not later combine the data in a personally identifying way. As a result, if you delete the app or re-download the app on a new device, you will not have access to any of your historical data unless it is kept in Apple’s Health app (premium version). (For information on Apple’s Health app, please see, https://www.apple.com/ios/health/.)
The information collected includes information you provide to us. From the App Settings or when downloading the App, you will indicate your gender, whether you are pregnant or breastfeeding, your weight, your birth year, and your zip code. Your zip code may be manually entered or generated from your location services, depending on your mobile settings. Additionally, you will indicate your activity level, time spent outdoors, and whether you are right or left handed. You may then manually input your daily hydration goal or allow BevWatch to suggest a goal based on your inputs.
We also use common technologies, such as accelerometers, in our App to collect information about your hydration intake or sips. Such technology may assign a time stamp to the sip or collect basic device information.
When you use the App or its content, certain third parties may use automatic information collection technologies to collect information about you or your device. These third parties may include:
These third parties may use tracking technologies to collect information about you when you use this App. The information they collect may be associated with your personal information or they may collect information, including personal information, about your online activities over time and across different websites, apps, and other online services websites. We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used.
We allow you to restrict our collection of data. Essentially, that means the data will remain on your device and will not be sent to us. Note that this does not apply to any third party data collection (see above for more information). Turning off data collection is possible for any user who wishes to do so by following the four steps below:
Our primary purpose for collecting data is to suggest and/or track your hydration goals. To provide these services, we rely on deidentified or anonymized data. For that reason, if you delete the app or re-download the app on a new device, you will not have access to any of your historical data unless it is kept in Apple’s Health app (premium version). (For information on Apple’s Health app, please see, https://www.apple.com/ios/health/.)
We may aggregate and share the deidentified or anonymized data with third parties for research or commercial purposes. Such data will remain deidentified and will not be recombined or linked in a personally identifying way. Other situations in which we may disclose data to unaffiliated third parties shall be limited to:
Due to our data collection and anonymization practices, we do not anticipate any personal information will be shared with the above parties. In the event your personal information is shared with any of the above parties, we would seek to limit the scope of information that is furnished to the extent necessary for the performance of the specific function. Unless otherwise precluded by law, we would require third parties to agree to protect your personal information, abide by applicable privacy laws and regulations, and we would grant to such third parties no independent rights to the personal information.
If you are a California resident, California law may provide you with additional rights regarding our use of your personal information.
The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) provides California consumers specific rights concerning their personal information, including, the right to request that a business disclose what personal information it collects, uses, discloses, and sells.
All of the data BevWatch collects from your app is deidentified to help protect your personal information. Because it is deidentified, BevWatch cannot associate any data collected with your specific account, and as a result, BevWatch is not currently subject to The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) requirements. While we cannot currently delete or provide additional information about data collected from your app and/or devices, you can always turn off data collection by following the instructions above.
