Your Personal Data may be used for the following purposes:
3.1 Provide features of the Alive App and the products and services you request:
We may use the Personal Data you give us to provide the Alive App and the products and services you request, including:
- to create and set up your User Account;
- to assist any orders for services that you place on the Alive App, including to communicate with you about the orders and to process information for our internal accounting, billing, and audit purposes; and
- if you use the Alive App to track your fitness activity (including photos), we will collect and store this information so that you can review it on the Alive App and track your progress.
3.2 Communicate information about our products and services and for other promotional purposes:
With your consent, or as otherwise permitted by applicable Data Privacy Law, we will use your Personal Data to provide information that we believe is of interest to you, before, during, and after your interactions with us, including marketing communications and news concerning our products, services, events, and other promotions. You can opt-out at any time after you have given your consent to such communications by contacting us at the details in Section 9. In providing tailored promotional materials to you, we may use the personal information collected through your use of the Alive App, such as the user preferences you set and profile data you submit.
3.3 Customer service communications:
We use your data to manage our relationship with you as our customer and to improve our services and enhance your experience with us (e.g. to respond to your inquiries when you reach out to us). From time to time, we may also conduct customer surveys to gauge satisfaction with our Alive App and the services that we provide.
3.4 Administrative or legal purposes:
We use your Personal Data to operate our business, including for statistical and marketing analysis, systems testing and to diagnose technical and service problems, maintenance and development of our Alive App, or in order to deal with a dispute or claim. We may also perform data analysis based on the data we collect from you for statistical and marketing analysis purposes – for example, we may use information about how users of our Alive App search for and find specific workouts to better understand the best ways to organize and present the content that we offer.
3.5 Security, health, administrative, crime prevention/detection, and legal purposes:
We may use your Personal Data to verify your information and identity and to protect against, identify, and prevent fraud and other unlawful activities. We may also share your Personal Data with government authorities or enforcement bodies for compliance with legal requirements, or as otherwise required or permitted by applicable Data Privacy Law.
3.6 Other purposes:
We may also use your Personal Data in other ways, and where we do so, we will provide specific notice at the time of collection and obtain your consent unless otherwise permitted by applicable Data Privacy Law.
- to comply with a legal obligation;
- if it is in our legitimate interests to do so as a business (e.g. for administrative purposes) and to improve the functionality of our Alive App;
- where you have consented to our using your personal data (e.g. for marketing related uses); and
- to protect your vital interests or those of another person (e.g. in case of a medical emergency).
4. How do we protect and manage your Personal Data (including international transfers and retention periods)?
4.1 Encryption and security.
We follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of your Personal Data, which are designed to protect it against misuse, unauthorized access, modification or disclosure and accidental loss, destruction or damage. The data you provide to us is protected using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology. SSL is the industry standard method of encrypting personal information and credit card details so that they can be securely transferred over the internet.
4.2 International transfers of your Personal Data.
We intend to operate businesses in multiple jurisdictions, some of which are not located in the United States. The Personal Data that we collect from you will be stored in the United States and might also be shared with third-party data recipients (e.g. e-commerce and logistics providers and customer support providers) that are not located in the United States of America. Therefore, the Personal Data that you provide to us may be transferred internationally to countries other than the country in which you initially provided your data.
4.3 Retention of your Personal Data.
We will not retain your data for longer than is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it is being processed. To determine the appropriate retention period, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the purposes for which we process it, and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means.
We also consider the periods for which we might need to retain personal data in order to meet our legal obligations, or to deal with complaints and queries, and to protect our legal rights in the event of a claim being made.
In general, this means that we will likely keep your Personal Data for as long as your User Account is open. Following closure of your User Account, however, we may still retain your Personal Data so that we can maintain a continuous relationship with you if and when we are in contact with you again, and to comply with our internal processes and any legal obligations.
When we no longer need your personal data, we will securely delete or destroy it. We will also consider if and how we can minimize over time the personal data that we use, and if we can anonymize your personal data so that it can no longer be associated with you or identify you, in which case we may use that information without further notice to you.
5. Who do we share your Personal Data with?
- other companies and members within the Simmons’ group, including affiliates of Simmons;
- other companies, contractors, or agents that assist us in providing services to you, including our online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell and deliver our products and services to you
- if you have provided consent, other companies, contractors or agents in connection with our marketing efforts, or marketing platform providers;
- credit and debit card companies which facilitate your payments to us, and for anti-fraud screening, which may need information about your method of payment to process payment or ensure the security of your payment transaction.
- government authorities, law enforcement bodies and regulators for compliance with legal requirements, or where otherwise required by applicable Data Privacy Law; and
- our legal and other professional advisers in order to enforce our legal rights in relation to our contract with you.
We may also transfer your Personal Data to potential buyers in the event that we sell or transfer all of a part of our business or assets (including in the event of a reorganization or dissolution/liquidation), under strict non-disclosure restrictions, and solely in order to allow a buyer to determine whether to proceed with the transaction, or where such a determination is made, to complete it.
6.Your Rights and Choices
6.1 Your Rights.
Under certain circumstances, by applicable Data Privacy Law you may have the right to:
- Request information about whether we hold personal information about you, and, if so, what that information is and why we are holding/using it;
- Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it;
- Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected;
- Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see (e) below);
- Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes;
- Object to automated decision-making including profiling, that is, not to be the subject of any automated decision-making by us using your personal information or profiling of you;
- Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it;
- Request transfer of your personal information in an electronic and structured form to you or to another party (commonly known as a right to “data portability”). This enables you to take your data from us in an electronically useable format and to be able to transfer your data to another party in an electronically useable format; and
- Withdraw consent. In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing, and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes to which you originally agreed, unless we have another proper and legitimate basis for doing so.
6.2 Exercising your rights.
If you wish to exercise your rights related to your Personal Data (including the rights set out above), please contact the Simmons team using the details in Section 9.
While you will generally not be required to pay a fee to access your Personal Data or to exercise any of your other statutory rights, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive or we may decline to comply with such requests where permitted by applicable Data Privacy Law.
6.4 Requesting information.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that Personal Data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it and to prevent unauthorized modification of your personal information.
6.5 Lodging a complaint.
You may also have the right to lodge a complaint about our processing of your Personal Data with the body regulating data protection in the country or state/province in which you live.
