Body Volume Privacy Statement
We follow strict security procedures to maintain User, patient and client privacy and confidentiality. Protecting privacy is really important to us. This Privacy Statement explains the processes used in the collection and use of personal information that we receive through our services. This Privacy Statement does not apply to any third-party websites, services or applications, even if they are accessible through our Services. Please make sure that you have read and understand our Terms of Service. This Privacy Statement applies to personal data collected by us via the BVI Pro App. This Privacy Statement is posted on the Bodyvolume.com web site.
Future revisions to this Privacy Statement
This Privacy Statement may be revised from time to time. Any material changes will be notified to you by posting them on the Bodyvolume.com web site or by sending you an email confirming the date of change.
Collection and use of Data
The primary reason for collecting personal data is to improve the accuracy and User experience of BVI Pro app so to overall improve our services for Users, their patients or clients and to improve health and fitness management. We do not identify or collect personal data on patients or clients other than is described below. There is no link to their personal identity and the information is anonymous.
We take reasonable administrative, physical and electronic measures designed to protect the information collected (including personal information) about patients and clients from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Appropriate security measures have been established to ensure User /Account access is only through the User name and Password created by the User / Account holder. However, please be aware that no method of transmitting information over the Internet or storing information is completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of any information or data.
User/account holder personal data. We will collect certain personal information that could be used to identify the User /Account holder (not the patient or client) in connection with use of the BVI Pro App. As a User / Account holder by creating a BVI Account, we’ll be able to access and collect your name, email address, data account was opened, country of residence, password, profession and number of ‘scans’ credited to your iTunes account and other personal information that your privacy settings on the Account permit us to access. (This information is within the Date Protection Act 1998 (UK) and General Data Protection Regulation (EU).
Patient / Client personal information. Personal information on patients and clients is anonymous and non-personal data. The information we hold on patients or clients is limited to: First name only, height, weight, year of birth, gender, level of fitness, patient / client reference number (created by the User / account holder) and the silhouette outline which is transmitted in an encrypted form to the BVI software engine for processing. The date and time of the scan is also recorded. Post-processing, newly generated personal data is sent back to the mobile device in an encrypted form including: volume of body fat, visceral fat, abdomen volume, waist to hip ratio, BMI and a BVI number.
The absence of data such as surname, telephone number, address / email address or body features alleviates the need for this data to be protected under the DPA (UK) or GDPR (EU). The patient / client information is stored on the mobile device and can only be accessed by the User / account holder and is outside the scope of the DPA (UK), GDPR (EU) and Caldicott Guardian Principles
The User / account holder can, should they choose, transmit the anonymised Patient / Client non personal data to a server chosen by the User / Account holder.
The BVI Pro app will not permit the User to submit and process personal data on any person under the age of 18. The information from the BVI Pro app by us is used to collect broad demographic information for research use.
We do not ask for or collect and therefore do not link IP addresses to personally identifiable information of patients or clients. The patient’s or client’s photographs are not sent to the server but are deleted prior to data transmission.
Patient / client information is not linked to personal data that could be used to identify an individual. (If a patient or client chooses not to provide particular personal details we may be unable to provide the service to them as incomplete data collection will lead to incorrect outcome results).
From time to time we may share aggregated demographic information with our partners for anonymous research purposes by scientific and research collaborators subject to the data remaining anonymised and non- attributable to an identifiable individual. This anonymous data is transferable across jurisdictional borders under appropriate non-disclosure agreements.
In using the Bodyvolume.com and downloading the BVI Pro app, you consent to the collection and use of information by us as described above.
We may use automated data collection tools such as Cookies and Web Beacons to collect certain information.
