How Does Bravo Wellness Use Information About Me?
We and others acting on our behalf may use the information that we collect or receive to operate our business, including our Sites, as described below:
Operate and Support our Programs and Sites. We use the information that we gather in order to operate our Sites. For example, we may use the information that we collect or receive to provide support and assistance that you request or to diagnose or address technical problems in the operation of our Sites. If you establish an account with us, we may use information about you to manage or support your account and to determine your eligibility to participate in our Programs, provide you with our services and tailor our services to you.
Improving and Evolving our Sites and Programs. We constantly evaluate and improve our Sites and Programs, including developing new products or services and use the information we gather to do so.
Other Contacts. We may contact you through telephone, postal mail, text messages or email for other purposes, as permitted by law. Bravo will never sell your information or contact you in an effort to sell you a product or service.
3. When Does Bravo Wellness Share Information?
Healthcare Providers. We may share information with your healthcare providers and any clinics or organized healthcare organizations with whom they are associated.
Other Participants. Your Sponsor may ask us to create wellness-based contests between you and other participants. If you participate in these contests, we may share limited information about you with other participants. For example, if you enter a contest based on the number of cups of coffee you drink per day, other participants may see your name, that you are participating in the contest and the number of cups of coffee you drink. Your information will not be available unless you enter the contest.
Sponsors. Under U.S. laws, we may share Protected Health Information and biometric information with Sponsors for plan administration purposes and the coordination of your care.
Your Employer. We will not share your Protected Health Information with your employer for employment-related purposes. We may only share the information needed to administer plan and deliver Programs. For example, we may share the number of points you have earned by participating in a Program or a related contest.
Corporate Affiliates. We may share information with our corporate affiliates for their everyday business purposes to provide services. We may also participate in joint ventures with others and we may share information as permitted by this Statement as part of that joint venture.
Third-Party Service Providers. We may share your information with our third party service providers who provide Program-related services such as coaching. We may also employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from participant lists, analyzing data and providing marketing assistance. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Business Transfer. We may share information we have collected from you in connection with the sale or merger of our business or the transfer of assets.
Protection of Ourselves and Others. We may use and share the information we gather to enforce our rights and protect our property and those of our affiliates, customers and members of the public, to comply with applicable law, legal process, legal advice and for preventing fraud, theft, and injury to you, us or others.
4. What Choices Do I Have Regarding My Information?
You may limit and control the information provided to us in a number of ways. You may not be able to use all features of our Sites or Programs if you limit the information you share with us.
You may unsubscribe from promotional emails from us by following the unsubscribe link included in each such email.
You may also have additional rights with respect to Protected Health Information as may be explained in your Sponsor’s “Notice of Privacy Practices.” Please contact your Sponsor for that Notice.
5. How Can I Access and Update My Information?
If you have registered for an account at our Sites, you may access, update and change certain information we have collected about you by logging in to your account and updating your information or by calling us. Because we collect information about you from a variety of sources, we may ask you to contact the source of the information to correct that information. For example, you may need to contact your healthcare provider to correct a laboratory test result that you feel is inaccurate.
6. How Does Bravo Wellness Address California Privacy Rights?
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 entitles California users to request information concerning the disclosure of certain personal information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. California users who wish to request further information in compliance with this law may contact us as specified in the “How to Contact Us” section below.
As of the Effective Date listed above, there is no commonly accepted response for Do Not Track signals initiated by browsers.

7. How Does Bravo Wellness Protect the Security of the Personal Information it Collects?
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or other cryptographically secure encryption protocols and by storing your information in physically secured environments. In addition, we use administrative, technical, and physical security designed to safeguard personal information in our possession.
