This Privacy Policy explains how personal information (“PII”), and non- personal information (collectively referred herein as “your information”) is collected, used, and disclosed by Achievemint (“we,” “us,” or “our”). This Policy applies to the users (“you”) of the Achievemint websites, mobile applications, and other online services (collectively, our “Services”), such as www.achievemint.com.

Information We Collect

Information you submit or authorize us to collect:

We collect information about you in various ways when you use the Services. For example, when you register for and use the Services we collect information, including personal and account information, that you submit to us. This may include information such as your name, username, email and mailing address, and phone number. If you choose to register for the Services via a third-party service with which you have an account, such as Facebook or Twitter, we may collect certain information from your third-party account, such as name, email address, and other personal information that your privacy settings in your third-party account permit us to access. We may also collect information that you submit, such as gender, date of birth, and other demographic information. If you use the Services, we may also collect survey responses, or other information that you submit in connection with the Services, such as the information you submit regarding your eligibility to participate in a study.

If you opt to connect any applications, devices, services, or any accounts that you maintain with a third-party to the Services (collectively “Third-Party Applications”), we will also collect the information that you authorize us to collect on your behalf from such Third-Party Applications, including, but not limited to, health and wellness data, as well as your contacts. We may combine the data that you authorize us to collect from Third Party Applications with information that we already hold.

Information collected with your express consent:

In addition to the information collected pursuant to this Privacy Policy, we may collect additional information about you if we have your express consent to do so. For example, if you opt to participate in a study via the Services, we will collect that information necessary for us to run the study, including information you submit and information obtained from third parties. As part of your participation you will be presented with and will need to agree to the terms of an Informed Consent, Patient Authorization, or an equivalent consent agreement, in order to participate. Please review that document carefully as it will outline the specific information to be collected and how it will be used for a given study.

Even if you do not register with our Services, or submit information directly, our Services may collect this automatically collected information.
