 Information We Collect

Information We Collect from an End User:

    • App: When you register for the App, we require the following information: your name, email address, telephone number, age, height, weight, and gender
    • Product: Our Body Composition Analysis Device collects multiple data points from your body and outputs information such as BMI, PBF, Lean Body Mass, Skeletal Muscle Mass, level of Body Water etc. Accessories connected to the InBody Body Composition Analyzer may collect and output many different data points. Results from the device and the accessory are pooled together and associated with your registered ID and/or telephone number. If you wish to be left anonymous and unidentifiable, you may use the Product as a Guest. Height, weight, age, and gender are still required from a Guest user to process the data. The storage of your data on the server allows you to track changes over multiple tests and multiple Service(s). The guest user may not be able to track their results. Also, depending on the model of the Product, additional body composition measurement information may be stored, such as visceral fat level, leg lean mass etc.
    • Wearable devices: Wearable devices track your sleep, calories, activity, steps, etc. You have the option to use different functions such as your activity time, distance traveled, and calories burned. You may also selectively choose to hide any of the functionalities (except battery, time, and body composition analysis) from the screen of the Wearable device.  The Ranking system function, derived from the Wearable device, in the App is available for you to compare your steps and/or scores activity with your friends and family who have this system available and turned on. This optional feature requires you to provide access to the contacts and opt-in to share your results with your contacts through settings. To know more about ranking system and the different functions of the Wearable device, please refer to the “Terms of Service for End User”.
    • As it pertains to the Personal Information that you share about yourself to InBody using InBody’s Service directly, without an Analysis Facility, you agree that no Protected Health Information is included, and that HIPAA does not apply to such Personal Information.

 

Information We collect from an Analysis Facility:

An Analysis Facility may be asked to provide InBody with Personal Information of Facility Users who may access the Site. Such information can include their full name, telephone number, email address, and date of birth. The Staff member is a sub-tier account to the Admin account with limited access to the Site. Each Analysis Facility may have a different staff structure, and the level of access to the End User’s information, will be determined by InBody at our sole discretion by reference to the Facility User's responsibility and role at the Analysis Facility. A Facility User’s personal information is used to create account logins for the Site during the creation of an Administrator account and/or Staff member account. The Facility User is responsible for the accuracy of the information, any changes or updates on the account, and the confidentiality of the login credentials for the Site. A Facility User may be asked to provide identifiable information to InBody if they call in for support.

 

Analysis Facility – Covered Entity

An Analysis Facility that is a Covered Entity hereby represents and warrants to InBody that such Analysis Facility has obtained the necessary Authorization Form, to ensure that such Analysis Facility has consent to disclose each End User’s Personal Information and Personal Health Information which shall comply with HIPAA and other applicable state and federal privacy laws. The Covered Entity that discloses the Personal Health Information to InBody must enter into and comply with terms of a mutually agreeable Business Associate Agreement.

                    Data Retention and Deletion

                      We and our affiliates actively retain Personal Information for ten years for our relationship for the purposes described above or as permitted or required by federal law. Aggregation of data will take place after ten years of your inactivity. Your Personal Information is aggregated when you are inactive on the App AND have not used the Product for ten years. When your information is aggregated, your Protected Health Information, name, ID, phone number, and email address, is deleted permanently. Only the de-identifiable information is kept for development, improvement, and/or marketing purposes. Inactivity is defined by two requirements:

                       

                      • When you are inactive (have not logged in) on the App
                      • When you have not used the Product at the Facility

                       

                      Inactivity or cancellation of the subscription by the Analysis Facility from the Product or the Service does not impact your access to previous test results or the test results produced by InBody wearable products. If you are continuously using the Product, your information will be retained until you become inactive for ten years or delete the information by making a request to the Facility. 

                       

                      Data can be deleted (i) if an Administrator of the Site deletes the data or account on the Site; or (ii) if you manually delete the test results on the App (which does not mean that data has been deleted on the Facility’s Site).

                       

                      To delete your Personal Information permanently, you must talk to your Administrator or Staff Member to delete your information. Analysis Facility has Custody and Control over data that was acquired at their Facility. However, if you do not have a Facility and you use personal or home use device(s) independently, you may delete your test results or withdraw your account to permanently delete your account and information therein.

                      Deleting records and Personal Information is permanent; however, please note that in some cases we may be required to retain certain information where permitted or required by law, including without limitation if such information is the subject of a legal dispute. LookinBody Company may wait for a certain time before permanently deleting your records or Personal Information in order to help avoid accidental or malicious removal of your information.

                      Backups

                        A Backup is defined as data stored that matches the data on the Analysis Facility’s Product(s). The Backup will be maintained for the duration of the End User account or LookinBody Web active account until data is permanently deleted from the account. Data may be stored in the Backup even after someone deletes an End User account or information to avoid accidental or malicious deletion of your information. After a reasonable time period has passed, the data will be deleted permanently or restored if requested. After the data is deleted permanently, the Backup will be deleted, subject to any legal requirements.

                         

                        Data Accuracy

                          InBody works hard to ensure that the information within its Custody and Control is accurate. Nevertheless, the End User should be vigilant of the accuracy of their own Personal Information. The method for updating Personal Information depends on the information source. Personal Information comes from one of the following:

                          • Entered by you on the App or the Product
                          • Entered by the Analysis Facility on the Site or the Product

                          Information you delete, update, or add on the App is stored only on your phone, viewable to you,nd will impact your manually inputted test results, Personal Use device, and Wearable device results. It is in our Custody but Controlled by you. If you wish to update your Personal Information on any other device you should consult your Analysis Facility or update it yourself on the device. To update your personal information on the Site, make a request to the Facility User. Understand that any change to your Personal Information will not impact your previous tests.

                          Any factors of the Personal Information that are dynamic (changes frequently) for example Weight, Age or Phone Number, should be updated by you or the Analysis Facility accordingly. As the Analysis Facility and you have full authority to change or update any part of the Personal Information, InBody and its affiliates do not take responsibility for test results and/or decisions made, based on the inaccurate Personal Information.

                           

                          Accessing and Correcting Personal Information

                            You and the Analysis Facility have full authority to add, update, or delete any part of your Personal Information. Yet you may request access or correction of your Personal Information to us. To access or request correction of your Personal Information, please contact us at Info@InBody.com.We may require you to verify your identity before allowing you to access your Personal Information. We may decline your access because of security or legal reasons but you can submit a written request to us and we will try to address the issues as soon as possible.

                             

                            Children’s Privacy

                              We are mindful that the Services will be attractive and of benefit to potential users under the age of 18 or local age of majority and it is our policy, regardless of the country in which the Analysis Facility is located, to ensure that parents or legal guardians can monitor data collected in respect of such users. Our Service(s) is available to End Users who are below the age of 18 or local age of majority. The parent or legal guardian of any End User aged below 18 years of age is required to consent to the collection and use of his/her child’s Personal Information and Personal Health Information at the time of registering and use of our Services.

                              Safeguards

                                We work very hard to protect the data you provide. We take reasonable and appropriate measures to protect the data you submit, including physical, organizational, and technological security measures. Furthermore, we promise to never sell your Personal Information. Please be aware, however, that the Internet is a global communications vehicle open to threats, viruses, and intrusions from others. By accepting this Policy, the End User and Analysis Facility each acknowledge that unintentional data loss may occur despite the efforts made in good faith by InBody, its third-party affiliates, or an Analysis Facility.

                                The purpose of access and process by the third-party affiliates in different countries will remain consistent with this Policy.

                                Technical Safeguards

                                We restrict access to Personal Information and Personal Health Information to InBody employees, contractors, and agents who need to know Personal Information or Personal Health Information in order to process something for us. They are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations. Third parties are also required to limit the access to our server(s), to authorized personnel only, who use the information for the purposes indicated in this Policy.
