How does the Welld Service work?
5. THE WELLD SERVICE.
Welld provides online services that seek to connect fitness tracking information of a user with that user’s fitness club, physician, or employer’s wellness program.
(a) If you are just a visitor to the Welld Website, then the information Welld will collect will focus on your interaction with the Welld Website, such as non-personal browser information, website analytics, and information you may submit to us by email, as described in Section 9.
(b) If you decide to download our Application, you will be asked to provide information and register with Welld, and the information Welld will collect will expand to include your interaction with both the Application with the Welld Service. You can stop here and just enjoy the Application and Welld Website. You are not required to connect or interact with your fitness club, physician, employer’s wellness program, or others.
(c) However, if you choose to connect with others, then information will be shared with your connections as described below (and in the EULA), and you can make full benefit of the Welld Service.
Some of the description of the Welld Service, including definitions, may be repeated within the EULA or on the Welld Service. We want to ensure that you have the opportunity to understand how the Welld Service works, and how your information is handled.
5.3 Connected Devices.
6. WELLD CONNECTIONS.
A (i) “Welld Connection” means a connection established between an Account and a Licensed Participant; (ii) “Licensed Participant” means a person or organization that has been licensed by Welld to access and use the Welld Service in connection with End Users with whom a Welld Connection has been established - in other words, a Licensed Participant is a fitness club, physician, employer, or other party that is eligible for connection by users; (iii) “Participating Fitness Club” means a fitness club that has been licensed by Welld to access and use the Welld Service; (iv) “Participating Physician” means a healthcare provider that has been licensed by Welld to access and use the Welld Service; (v) “Participating Employer” means an employer that has been licensed by Welld to access and use the Welld Service; and (vi) “Reported Information” means information about an End User that is provided or reported to Welld by a Licensed Participant (or other third party) or is submitted or entered into the Welld Service by a Licensed Participant.
6.2 Creation of Welld Connections.
Making a Welld connection with any other party is your choice. You may choose to create or accept Welld Connections with Participating Employers, Participating Fitness Clubs, or Participating Physicians (a “Connected Party”, or “Connected Parties”). You may terminate your Welld Connections at any time. When the Welld Connection with a Connected Party is terminated, that Licensed Participant will no longer have access to Shared Account Information stored in the Welld Service (except Identity Verification Information as defined below.)
6.3 Shared Account Information.
Welld will share the following categories of Account Information (“Shared Account Information”) as follows:
(a) Participating Employers:
(b) Participating Fitness Clubs (if a Connected Party):
(c) Participating Physicians (if a Connected Party):
6.4 Integration of Shared Account Information.
Each Connected Party may integrate your Shared Account Information into an information system outside of the Welld Service or otherwise print, download, or copy your Shared Account Information outside of the Welld Service, and Welld can neither control how such Shared Account Information is used or anonymize, de-identify, or delete such Shared Account Information when your Welld Account is closed. How a Connected Party is permitted to use your Shared Account Information is determined by the nature of your relationship with the Connected Party and any separate agreement you may have with that Connected Party. You understand and agree that Welld is not responsible or liable for any misuse of your Shared Account Information by Licensed Participant
Licensed Participants may, from time to time, promote a competition or challenge for End Users to engage in certain physical activities (such as taking a certain number of steps within a specified period of time) (a “Challenge”). When you choose to participate in a Challenge, your Activity Data that relates to the subject of the Challenge will be shared with the Connected Party sponsoring the Challenge.
If you enroll in a fitness, health, or exercise program licensed through the Welld Service (“Program”), specific information about your enrollment in the Program and the activities, measurements, outcomes, and results associated with each Program in which you have enrolled (“Program Results”) will be shared with your Welld Connections. Some Programs may require you to complete the Program through a Participating Fitness Club and to establish a Welld Connection with such Participating Fitness Club before enrolling in the Program. Some Programs may only be available through a referral from a Participating Physician, and you may be required to establish a Welld Connection with a Participating Physician before enrolling in the Program. In the event that you close your Welld Account or delete your Welld Connection with the Participating Fitness Club or with the Participating Physician associated with a Program enrollment, that Program enrollment will be cancelled automatically.
What information does Welld collect, and how is it used?
“Personal Information” means personally-identifiable information (information relating to an individual that can be used to identify, locate, or contact that individual, alone or when combined with other personal or identifying information), such as: name, home or physical address, e-mail address, phone number, or personal characteristics (such as photos, age or date of birth, race, gender, height, weight, occupation, education, Health Information, Sensitive Information (as defined below)), or any other information about an individual that we collect through the Welld Service or maintain in personally identifiable form.
“Sensitive Information” means Social Security numbers, passport numbers, driver’s license numbers, insurance policy numbers, Login Credentials, or other similar information.
“Non-Personal Information” means information or content other than Personal Information, including, for example, aggregated, anonymized, or de-identified information about users and other information that does not identify any individual.
9. TYPES OF INFORMATION COLLECTED.
As described in the Introduction above, the type of information collected and used will depend on how you use the Welld Service. For example, if you just visit the Welld Website and do not submit any Personal Information to Welld, then Section 11 should not apply to you because Welld would not have received your Personal Information. Alternatively, if you register, use the Application, and use the Welld Service to connect with your physician, then Section 11 may apply for any of your Connected Devices.
