Effective May 26th, 2016
We are a health & wellness technology company with a mission to empower integrative health & wellness coaches and practitioners to do what they do best: guide people to live happier and healthier lives. We use cutting-edge hardware and software technology in our Mbody360 delivery application system that allows both you and your practitioner the ability to exchange information, communicate regarding coaching strategies, and view stored communications and information, as you follow and track to your practitioner’s program.
Mbody360 allows you to input and view your information that is stored on our application system cloud servers. Tracking your information provides a more customized experience by enabling you to analyze how well your practitioner’s program is working. For instance, if your conditions are not improving, your practitioner and you may try different approaches to determine whether modifications in their program improve your progress.
We may disclose your information under the following circumstances:
We also use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the application system, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not typically linked to personal information. While there can be no guarantee of privacy, we have established reasonable and appropriate safeguards to protect your information from unauthorized use and disclosure. To the extent you share your information (your personal health information, contact information, or access credentials) within our application system, or otherwise with anyone, you are solely responsible for any compromise of confidentiality that may result from your sharing that information.
You can always opt not to disclose information, even though it may be needed to take advantage of certain features of the Site, the Mobile App and the Services.
You are able to add or update certain information in the Mobile app or Website. When you update information, however, we often maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our records.
If you would like us to remove your records from our system, you may request deletion of your account with us by sending e-mail to email@example.com. Please note that some information may remain in our records after deletion of your account, including any information or records we are legally obligated to retain. We will process your request within a reasonable time, but please note that you may receive additional communications and offers as we process your request.

Information you provide may include facts about your health. You are voluntarily choosing to disclose this information. Such information may include reference to your health, health data, and medication(s) and/or medical conditions. This kind of information, coupled with information that identifies you, may be considered personalized health information that may be protected by federal health privacy laws such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 and its privacy and security regulations (HIPAA), and under the privacy and security provisions of the Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009 (HITECH Act). We believe in protecting your personalized health information from unauthorized disclosure, and will comply with applicable laws with respect to that information. Specifically, we will comply with provisions of the HIPAA Security Rule that apply to business associates under the HITECH Act, the privacy and security provisions of the HITECH Act that are applicable to business associates, and the However, while we will engage in commercially reasonable efforts to protect your privacy, applicable law may allow for disclosures in certain circumstances.
If you chose to share your personalized health information with us, federal and state laws provide certain privacy and disclosure safeguards. However, these laws are not absolute; disclosure of that information may be authorized in certain circumstances. Some examples of when disclosure may lawfully occur are:
You provide personal information when you create your account with us. We may use that information to verify your identity and permit you to view data in our application system. However, we have no way of knowing if someone logging on to our application system is really you so we must solely rely on the access credentials provided. That means if someone secures your access credentials, with your permission or not, they will be able to access our application system and view your information and communicate on our application system. Our application system lacks the ability to discern whether access credential holders are legitimate. We log and audit application system use in an effort toward ensuring that users access the application system appropriately. But, if you share your access credentials with another person or party, or another person or party acquires your access credentials, we cannot determine if that access is authorized by you or not. In the event we suspect application system misuse, or are engaged in quality control efforts, we may attempt to contact you regarding application system use. But, we cannot guaranty we can or will detect application system misuse by someone not actually authorized by you if that person has your access credentials, and we disclaim any responsibility if access credentials are used to access your information or to communicate on our application system in a manner not authorized by you.
We may ask you to participate in user surveys, questionnaires, or polls, to facilitate application system feedback as we work to improve our application system and services. We may collect and retain survey responses, questionnaires, or polls related to our application system, and use that information to the extent authorized by our terms of service and applicable law.
We employ industry standard administrative, physical, and technical measures designed to safeguard and protect information under our control from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure. In addition, when we collect, maintain, access, use, or disclose your Personal Information, we will do so using systems and processes consistent with information privacy and security requirements under applicable federal and state laws, including, without limitation, HIPAA.
Furthermore, your individual user account is protected by a password for your privacy and security. To ensure that there is no unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information, we suggest that you safeguard your password appropriately and limit access to your computer and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.
