Your privacy, and the privacy of all users of the Wearsafe software and associated Wearsafe websites (collectively, the “Services”) is important to us.  In connection with your use of the Services, we ask for and may collect a variety of Information as more fully described below.  Wearsafe Labs has voluntarily certified that it meets the U.S. Department of Commerce Privacy Shield Principles for adequate privacy protection of data of EU and Swiss individuals.  Accordingly, we have adopted the following privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) which describes:

  • How and why we collect certain information from you via the Service;

  • How we use and with whom we share Information;

  • How you can access and update such Information; and

  • The choices you can make about how we collect, use and share Information.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that we do not own or control, including third party websites, services and applications (collectively, “Third Party Services”) that you may access or receive in connection with the Service or to individuals that we don’t manage or employ.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully, and feel free to contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions regarding its content.  This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and made a part of the Wearsafe Terms of Service (“Wearsafe Term of Service”).  Terms not defined herein shall have the meaning set forth in the Wearsafe Terms of Service.

You may decline to submit any information through the Service, in which case we may not be able to provide our Service to you.

Your California Privacy Rights

If you are a California resident, the information below may apply to you. Certain terms used in this section have the meaning given to them by the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”).

Privacy Shield Statement. Wearsafe Labs complies with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States.  Wearsafe has certified to the Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles.  If there is any conflict between the terms in this privacy policy and the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern.  To learn more about the Privacy Shield program, and to view our certification, please visit https://www.privacyshield.gov​. Please direct any inquiries or complaints regarding our compliance with the Principles to [email protected]. If we do not resolve your complaint, you may submit your complaint free of charge to JAMS using this link: https://www.jamsadr.com/eu-us-privacy-shield, Wearsafe Labs’ designated Privacy Shield dispute resolution provider.  Under certain conditions specified by the Principles, you may also be able to invoke binding arbitration to resolve your complaint.

Wearsafe will obtain assurances from its agents that they will safeguard personal information consistent with this Policy. Examples of appropriate assurances that may be provided by agents include: a contract obligating the agent to provide at least the same level of protection as is required by the relevant Privacy Shield Principles, Privacy Shield certification by the agent, or being subject to another European Commission adequacy finding. Where Wearsafe has knowledge that an agent is using or disclosing personal information in a manner contrary to this Policy, Wearsafe will take reasonable steps to prevent or stop the use or disclosure. In cases of onward transfer to third parties of data of EU and Swiss individuals received pursuant to the EU-US Privacy Shield and Swiss-US Privacy Shield, Wearsafe is potentially liable.
