Your Privacy

Our company is HealthMe Technologies SA (“HealthMe“); company number CH-621.3.010.022-0.


At HealthMe, your privacy is important to us. This privacy policy explains what Personal Information HealthMe (“HealthMe”, “we”, “us”, “our”, App”, Services”) collects from you through our products and how we use that information.‌ 


HealthMe serves a number of groups of users in different ways. References to products in this policy include HealthMe services, which are offered through our websites and app. 


Please read product-specific details in this privacy policy, which provide additional information about some HealthMe products.‌ 


This policy applies to all users of HealthMe products or services or its affiliates anywhere in the world, and to anyone else who contacts or otherwise submits information to HealthMe, unless noted below. 

1. Data Protection Principles

We are committed to complying with all applicable data protection law and principles, which means that your Personal Information will be:


  1. Processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent way; 
  2. Collected for specific, explicit and legitimate purposes stated in this policy and not used in any way that is incompatible with those purposes; 
  3. Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for those purposes; 
  4. Accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date; 
  5. Kept for no longer than is necessary for those purposes; and 
  6. Processed securely. 


Accountability is an important data protection principle. HealthMe must put in place appropriate technical and organisational measures to meet these requirements and review and update where necessary the measures that have been put into place. Being accountable is key to maintain trust with other parties and may help mitigate any enforcement action if the situation arises.

4. Transparency and Choices

In this section, we have summarised the rights that all users of HealthMe software products and services have under data protection law. We recommend that you read the relevant laws and guidance from the regulatory authorities for a full explanation of these rights.

  3. the right to rectification; 
  4. the right to erasure; 
  5. the right to restrict processing;

Providing the rights and freedoms of others are not affected, we will supply to you a copy of your Personal Information, or do one of the following: 


  1. We may ask you to verify your identity, or ask for more information about your request; or 
  2. Where we are legally permitted to do so, we may decline your request, but we will explain why if we do so. 


You have the right to have any inaccurate Personal Information about you rectified and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to have any incomplete Personal Information about you completed. 


In some circumstances, you have the right to the erasure of your Personal Information without undue delay. Those circumstances include: the Personal Information is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed; you withdraw consent to consent-based processing; you object to the processing under certain rules of applicable data protection law; the processing is for direct marketing purposes; and the Personal Information being unlawfully processed.
