Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy was last updated in October 19, 2021. 


PulseOn is committed to protecting your privacy and to comply with applicable data protection and privacy laws. Throughout this Privacy Policy the term “personal data” means information relating to an identified or identifiable individual (i.e. a natural person), such as for instance your name, address, phone number or email address. “PulseOn” refers to PulseOn Oy, including its affiliates (also referred to as “we”, “us”, or “our”).

This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which PulseOn collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from users (each, a “User”) of the online and mobile services provided by PulseOn (“Service”), including but not limited to, www.pulseon.com website (“Site”) and the PulseOn mobile application (“App”) intended to capture your activities based on your heart rate in order to achieve a better impact on your health and fitness level.

Personal data

In general, we aim to collect the minimum possible information from Users. We may collect personal data when Users use our App or fill out a form on our Site. Users may be asked for, as appropriate, name, email address or language preferences. Your age, gender, weight and height are asked for enabling the estimation of the energy consumption in the workouts and for providing relevant anonymous workout performance comparison reference information. You may opt not to provide correct information.

We may also collect other information you provide, such as your consents, preferences and feedback, information relating to your devices and other such information you provide us with. Please note that certain non-identifiable information collected from you may become personally identifiable when you provide us with your personal data.

The Service utilizes location information derived from multiple sources (e.g. GPS) to visualize the workouts you have made and determine the location of your mobile device (“your location”). You can opt-out and disable location services at any time.

We will collect personal data from Users only if they voluntarily submit such information to us. Users can always refuse to supply personal data, except that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Site or App related activities.

In case you are using a PulseOn application, to obtain the best benefits of the App, you may choose to sync some of your PulseOn app’s data with a third party application. In such case we will share your personal data with that application.

Our services may be provided in various countries and have servers in different locations.

We may be obligated by mandatory legislation to disclose your personal data to certain authorities, such as law enforcement agencies. We may also process your personal data in case needed to defend our legitimate interests in civil or criminal legal proceedings.

In the event that PulseOn is acquired by or merged with a third-party entity, or we transfer the Service to a third party, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign your personal data and other information we have collected from you as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, transfer or other change of control. 

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. 

How we protect your information
