Introduction


This Privacy Policy sets out the privacy policies and practices of UpHabit Inc. (referred to as “UpHabit”, “our”, “us” or “we”) with respect to the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information in connection with UpHabit.

In this Privacy Policy, “personal information” means information about an identifiable individual, as further defined under applicable laws, and “including” and its derivatives means “including without limitation”.

Changes to this Privacy Policy


We reserve the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy. The changes will be effective on the earlier of: (i) us providing you with notice of the changes (including by email, by posting notice on the Services, or by other reasonable means), or (ii) 14 days after the updated Privacy Policy has been posted on the Services. However, changes made to comply with the law will be effective immediately. You agree to regularly review this Privacy Policy to be aware of any changes.

Collection and Use of Information

We collect information in a number of ways:

Information you provide. This includes information you voluntarily provide when you register for the Services, update your account information, or use the Services.

When you sign up, we collect your personal information that we use to create and manage your UpHabit account. This includes First Name, Last Name, Email, and Mobile Number.

When you authorize UpHabit to access third parties such as Google, Microsoft and Apple Contacts, we synchronize data required to provide the UpHabit product and its features. This data includes contacts and email history. We frequently synchronize data from these sources once you’ve given us permission so that your data remains up to date.

The features of UpHabit that would require this data synchronization are:

  • Synchronizing your contacts to UpHabit
  • Data analysis to enrich your contacts including job title, position, important dates

From time to time, we may analyze data to identify opportunities to improve the product and the user experience. This analysis will help us optimize for such things like how data is organized and presented. Any data analysis will be conducted in a secure manner by authorized personnel only and then securely discarded after use.

Information from your use of the Services. This includes information collected in our server logs (such as browser type, pages visited, referring page, IP address, date and time stamps, other statistics, and errors), about the device you are using to access the Services (such as hardware and operating system details).

This also includes analytic data about usage of the app. We collect analytics and review them regularly to learn about general usage and identify opportunities for improvement. The type of analytics we collect are:

  • How often is the app opened?
  • What actions are being completed within the app?
    • Onboarding and Sign up Flows
    • Set reminders
    • View reminders
    • Complete reminders
    • Authorize accounts

We may aggregate your information with other information (including aggregating information about your use of the Services with that of others) in a way that it isn’t attributable as being identifiably about you (including by aggregating it into groups or categories).

This Privacy Policy does not apply to restrict our collection, use or disclosure of such anonymous or aggregated information. However, this same information may be considered personal information if we combine it with other information (such as identifiers like your name) in a way that makes it attributable as being identifiably about you. This Privacy Policy will apply to your information when it is combined in this identifiable way.

We use your personal information:

  • To provide the Services to you. This includes processing your registration and maintaining your account, tailoring or customizing the Services to you, providing you with analytics and tips regarding your use of the Services.
  • To maintain and improve user experiences and overall quality of the Services, and to develop new services. This includes diagnosing problems with our systems, administering the Services, and analyzing how the Services are being used.
  • To create anonymous aggregated information.
  • For additional purposes that may be identified at or before the time that the information is collected, or that you subsequently consent to.
  • Share your UpHabit status with your contacts that are also using UpHabit with an option to hide your status if you choose to.

We may store or process your personal information on servers in jurisdictions outside of the USA or Canada, but currently it only resides there. While your personal information is in a jurisdiction it may be accessed by the courts, law enforcement and national security authorities of that jurisdiction in accordance with the laws applicable in that jurisdiction.

If you have an UpHabit account, your data is securely retained so that we can provide the features of the product to you. We keep your data safe by using industry-best security practices in our infrastructure and we keep the data as long as they want to be a customer, deleting it fully when they delete their account.

If you would like an export of your data, please send a request in writing to privacy@uphabit.com. Will will respond to your request within 72 business hours.

If you would like your data removed from UpHabit, you can delete your account automatically in the app in Settings.
