Privacy Policy

Last updated: November 16th 2021

Hello, we are Ipnos Software Inc. (“Ipnos” or “We”)!

Respect for your privacy is important to you and to us. It’s essential that we earn your trust, and that Ipnos’ practices reflect our respect for your privacy. In this spirit, we created this policy to help you comprehend how we collect, use, disclose or otherwise process your personal data. We also cover information about your rights and other important details about your privacy, like how we secure your personal data. If you have any questions, please feel free to email our privacy support officer at [email protected].  Where relevant, Ipnos is the Controller under this policy.

When does this policy apply?

This privacy policy applies to all our mobile apps (our ‘Apps’) and to your use of our websites (‘Websites’ or ‘Web’):

This policy also applies to communications you may have with us via email, through live chat on our Apps or through social media.

When you click on links to third parties’ websites, or if you use a third party to create accounts on our Apps or websites, such as Google, Facebook or Twitter, this privacy policy does not apply to your sharing of personal data with these third parties. It’s always a good idea to read their privacy policies to understand what they do with your personal data.

Our Apps and Websites can be accessed and used from around the world. The laws that apply to the protection of your personal data may vary depending on where you reside. Ipnos strives to comply with all applicable laws – if you have questions based on your situation, feel free to contact privacy support at [email protected]. To see the specific Privacy notice applicable to California residents, click here.

When will I know that this policy has changed?

We reserve the right to and may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. Please review this policy regularly for the latest updates on our data privacy practices. If we make any material changes, we will notify you through the App, or by presenting you with a new version of this Privacy Policy. Your continued use of the App after the effective date of an updated version of the Privacy Policy will indicate your acceptance of the Privacy Policy as modified. In some cases, we will need to request that you accept changes to the Privacy Policy explicitly.  In these cases where explicit acceptance is required, we will contact you to request your acceptance.  If you do not accept the terms of the Privacy Policy, you may not use the App or Websites. Please exit the App and Websites immediately if you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

What do we mean by ‘personal data’?

We want to protect your privacy as much as possible, so we consider personal data to include any information which allows us to identify you directly or indirectly, including through cookies and other electronic tools.

What do we mean by ‘cookies’?

Like many websites, our Websites and Apps use “cookies” to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that a website puts on your computer’s hard disk so that the website can remember something about you at a later time. If you are looking for more information on cookies, you can refer to websites such as http://www.cookiecentral.com/.

In this privacy policy, when we refer to “cookies” we include other technologies with similar purposes, such as pixels, tags, web beacons and the mobile identifiers which we collect from your cell phone (Android’s Advertising ID (AAID/IFA) or Apple’s Identifier for Advertising).

There are different types of cookies. Ipnos uses both first party and third party cookies:

  • First Party Cookies – First party cookies are those that are issued by us, and they can only be set or retrieved by us. They are used for purposes specific to us, such as to personalize the Website.
  • Third Party Cookies – Third party cookies are placed on our Websites, in emails or Apps by other entities, such as to create new functionalities, to monitor the activity of users on a Website/App for the purpose of Web/App analytics or conduct advertising.

Cookies can also be classified based on their roles. These are the types of cookies we use on our Websites and Apps:

  • Strictly Necessary – These cookies are essential to enable you to navigate our website and use its key features.
  • Performance Cookies – Performance cookies collect information about how users use our websites or Apps, such as the pages they go to most often, what pages or functions they use, how long a user spends meditating, and whether they get error messages from our webpages. These cookies provide us with information about our sites/apps traffic and performance. The actions and activities may be attributable to your device information, browsers, email address and/or IP address.
  • Functionality Cookies – These cookies are used for enhanced functionalities that are useful to you, such as social media sharing, but which are not necessary for our websites or Apps to perform their essential functions.
  • Targeting Cookies – These cookies are used to deliver advertising more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an ad as well as to help measure the effectiveness of a campaign.

If you are using one of our Websites, you can change your browser’s settings so it will stop accepting cookies and web beacons or to prompt you before accepting a cookie or web beacon. Opt-out options for cookies and web beacons are located here.

Personal Data you provide us directly

General Information. When you sign up to use the App, we may collect Personal Data about you such as:

  • Name you assign to your account;
  • Email address you assign to your account; and
  • Password or passcode you assigned to your account.

You can create an account on some of our Apps and Websites using your Facebook, Google, Apple or Twitter account (you should read the applicable third party privacy policy to see what other information those parties collect when you use their account to login to our Websites/Apps).

Sleep and Well-being. When you use the App, you may choose to provide personal information which might be considered related to your health and well-being such as:

  • When you wake up and when you go to sleep (and other things related to your sleep patterns);
  • When you feel hungry; and
  • If you meditate and for how long.

You also may give us the ability to import into the App Personal Data about your health and activities from third-party services such as Apple HealthKit and Google Fit. Such imported Personal Data may include your sleep patterns/data. In order for us to process any Personal Data under this category we will explicitly ask your consent on the registration screen.

If you take our sleep “chronotypes” quiz, we will only temporarily collect your answers to those questions for the purposes of delivering your “sleep score” or chronotype number. We do not store your individual answers to the chronotypes quiz, but we may store your “sleep score” against your unique Ipnos client ID and you will be able to see your chronotype in your profile.

Personal Data we may collect automatically

When you access or use the App or Web, we may automatically collect the following information:

Device Information:

  • Hardware model;
  • Information about the operating system and its version;
  • Unique device identifiers (e.g. IDFA);
  • Mobile network information;
  • Device storage information;
  • Browsers information (for Web);
  • App information (like App version, SDKs version, etc)

Location Information:

  • IP address;
  • Time zone;
  • Information about your mobile service provider.

We do not collect precise location data about you, although we are able to see in which city you are located, based on your IP address. We also collect information about the browser or device used to access the Website and App, such as the user’s mobile device ID (if you consent/opt in to tracking this) and IP address. This allows us to personalize your experience, and ensure that you are receiving relevant content and the right legal disclosures applicable to you based on your legal jurisdiction.

App usage data, including, among others:

  • Frequency of use;
  • Areas and features of our App you visit;
  • Your use patterns generally; and
  • Engagement with particular features.

To collect this information, we may send cookies to your mobile device or computer.  Opt-out options for cookies and web beacons are located here.

Data from external sources. We may use third-party tools like AppsFlyer that provide us some of your attribution data (which basically  means information about the ad that brought you to the website or App) that we may further utilize to customize and personalize your App experience. We may also use such data for statistical purposes and analytics.

How do we use your Personal Data?

We will not collect or process your Personal Data without having a reason and providing you with notice. So, for any processing of your Personal data we need to have some valid ground for conducting the processing, this is sometimes referred to as “legal basis”.

We process your Personal Data based on the following legal basis:

  • Your consent. We use your permission to process your Personal Data. For example, when you provide us information on the registration screen, we rely on your permission to process your data. We will also rely on your permission in other instances when we ask for it. You also consent to the use of your sensitive personal data as described below..
  • Your contractual relations with us. We may need to process some Personal Data for making the App and its services available for access, installation and further use. When we manage your account and respond to your inquiries about the App/website, we also rely on a contractual relationship.
  • Legitimate interest. We may process some of your personal data to pursue commercial interests and wider societal benefits like providing the best App/website that we can. In particular, we have legitimate interests in using your Personal Data for product development and internal analytics and to otherwise improve the safety, security, and performance of the App/site. We only rely on our or a third party’s legitimate interests when these interests are not overridden by your rights and interests.
  • Legal obligation. We may be obligated to process some of your Personal Data to comply with applicable laws and regulations.

Use of Cookies, Web Beacons, and Similar Technology for Advertising Networks

You and others may see certain ads for our Apps or Websites on other websites because we participate in ad networks. Ad networks allow us to target our messaging to users through demographic, interest-based, and contextual means. These networks track individuals’ online activities over time by collecting information through automated means, including through the use of cookies, web server logs, and web beacons. The networks use this information to show advertisements that may be tailored to an individual’s interests. The information our ad networks may collect includes information about your visits to websites that participate in the relevant ad networks, such as the pages or advertisements you view and the actions you take on the websites. This data collection takes place both on our websites and on third-party websites that participate in the ad networks. This process also helps us track the effectiveness of our marketing efforts and assists other websites and advertising partners to find you or people like you on different platforms, including social media websites.

By way of example, if you use Web (only) we may use Facebook Conversion Tracking Pixel to record how efficient our advertisements are for statistical and market research purposes. Facebook may connect the data with your Facebook account and use the data for their own advertising purposes, in accordance with its current privacy policy, which you can find here. No direct Facebook tracking is enabled in the App.

Google Analytics offers a function about remarketing audiences. It allows us to create segments based on the analytics that we have obtained, and then use it as part of remarketing campaigns on our Google Ads account. Google Ads uses a different cookie than Google Analytics.s mentioned above, you can opt-out of cookies and web beacons by visiting this link here.

Analytics and Performance Partners

In addition to using AppsFlyer for analytics,  we also use Iterable, Facebook SDK and Mixpanel to measure our performance and to help increase the performance of our ad campaigns. These third parties provide us with analytics for our Websites and Apps, which can then be used to segment users based on demographic information, custom events and user or session activity as part of our interest-based advertising activities. We also use analytics to learn about how we can improve our site and App and offer more services and functionality that may interest you.

We also use Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to better understand our websites’ performance. Google Analytics uses third party cookies to get information about how you arrived on our website, the search terms which were leveraged, the time of your visit, etc.

If you want to opt-out from Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting, you can do so by clicking here.

Social Media

Some of our pages, such as our blog posts, have an option allowing you to share the content on your social media. This occurs through a tool which can collect indirect data about you, like your IP address and information derived from your IP address (geographic location and information about your device like your preferred language). It may also collect the time and date that you visited the page for sharing.

If you connect to our Apps or websites through your social media, we receive the information which you accept to share with us to authenticate you.

Apple Health Kit & Android Sleep API

Apple HealthKit and Android Sleep API offers its users a central repository for health and fitness data on iPhone and Android. If you authorize the use of Apple HealthKit or Android Sleep API, our Apps will communicate with Apple HealthKit/Android Sleep API to access and share your data. These kits are designed to manage and merge data from multiple sources – this means that with your permission, our data are merged with those of your other apps in HealthKit/Android Sleep API.

We only share your data with HealthKit/Android Sleep API based on your consent, such as the time spent meditating through meditation logs and your sleep data, if you enable this. Under no circumstances will we share the information collected via the HealthKit/Android Sleep API to any third party, except if such third party is already providing you health services with your prior consent.

We do not use the information collected via HealthKit/Android Sleep API for advertising purposes nor are we selling the data collected to any advertising platforms, data brokers or information resellers. Prior for disclosing your personal data to third parties, we ensure that:

  • The personal data shared is limited to what is reasonably required for third parties to perform their services or functions as detailed in their applicable services terms;
  • Our agreements with them include reasonable terms and conditions to protect your personal data;
  • These third parties provide reasonable guarantees that they will protect your personal data and comply with applicable laws.

Where do you store my personal data?

We store your data on Google Cloud. We may change our hosting companies in the future, in which case, we will update this privacy policy.

Your personal information is stored inside and outside of Canada, including in the United States. In this situation, regarding personal data of European Union residents, we may transfer Personal Data to a Third Party outside the European Union after entering into a data transfer agreement with the other party/parties, based on standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission, or after adopting Binding Corporate Rules where necessary.

How do you ensure the security of my personal data?

We strive to protect your personal data by implementing security features that are proportionate to the risks, such as unauthorized access or disclosure. Our Apps and websites use encryption, and access to your data is only granted on a need-to-know basis to individuals with a non disclosure agreement or similar confidentiality obligations.

Security breaches

If we learn of a security systems breach, we may either post a notice, or attempt to notify you by email and will take reasonable steps to remedy the breach as specified in applicable law and this Privacy Policy. If we learn of a potential Personal Data breach, together with other actions referred to in this Privacy Policy (such as notifying you in certain cases), we may also undertake particular actions to remedy the breach, including, but not limited to, logging you out from all the devices, resetting a password (sending a temporary password for you to apply) and performing other reasonably necessary activities and actions.

How long do you hold my personal data for?

We keep your personal data as long as required to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected, or in accordance with the law (whichever is longer), for evidence and accounting purposes, for a period not exceeding the statutory limitation periods applicable. If you are using our Apps, we keep your profile information as long as your subscription is active.

What are my rights regarding my personal data?

You have the right to exercise your rights on your personal data, and we will try our best to help you. Your rights vary depending on the laws that apply to your situation, and the specific circumstances of the request. Some of the rights that may apply to you include the following rights:

If you want to exercise one of these rights and the situation allows for such exercise, we will generally help you without additional charges. If you request a transcription, reproduction or transmission of your personal information, we may have to charge a reasonable fee to process your request, subject to applicable laws. In this case, we will contact you about these charges before addressing your request.

For security reasons and to avoid any fraudulent request, we may be required to provide proof of identity with the request. After the request has been processed, this receipt will be destroyed.

If your request is denied, we will notify you in writing, provide you with detailed motives and information on how to contest our decision.

  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

You will not need to have an existing account with us to submit a request to know or delete. However, we do consider requests made through your password protected account sufficiently verified when the request relates to personal information associated with that specific account.

We will only use personal information provided in the request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make it.

Response Timing and Format

We will confirm receipt of your request within ten (10) business days. If you do not receive confirmation within the 10-day timeframe, please contact [email protected] .

We endeavor to substantively respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to another 45 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

  • Deny you goods or services.
  • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
  • Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
  • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

Other California Privacy Rights

California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of our website that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to [email protected].

California Minors

While our website and services are not intended for anyone under the age of 18, if you are a California resident who is under age 18 and you are unable to remove publicly-available content that you have submitted to us, you may request removal by contacting us at: [email protected]. When requesting removal, you must be specific about the information you want removed and provide us with specific information, such as the URL for each page where the information was entered, so that we can find it.

We are not required to remove any content or information that: (1) federal or state law requires us or a third party to maintain; (2) was not posted by you; (3) is anonymized so that you cannot be identified; (4) you don’t follow our instructions for removing or requesting removal; or (5) you received compensation or other consideration for providing the content or information.  Removal of your content or information from our system does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of that content or information from our systems or the systems of our service providers. We are not required to delete the content or information posted by you; our obligations under California law are satisfied so long as we anonymize the content or information or render it invisible to other users and the public.
