Our Take on Privacy

Healium’s mission is to reduce stress and help people learn to improve their mental fitness. The last thing that we want to create is stress for you in how we use your data. The entire design of our application is built around the security and privacy of your data. Your brain patterns and heart rate play an important role in your mental fitness and learning to self-regulate. Before Healium decided to start capturing biometric data, we spent years learning how to properly protect it. 

 

Our Commitment to Privacy

At Healium, data is handled with the highest level of sensitivity. We apply the same security standards for each piece of data in our care. We only use data we absolutely need in order to provide the user experience expected of us. We recognize the responsibilities associated with processing biometric data and the general public’s concerns around its use. Given our holistic approach to caring for all data we process with the highest standards of care, we align our data privacy and security actions to continually address any risks that arise. 

 

Personalized digital experiences require the processing of personal information. This means using data about you for your experience within our application. If you decide that you no longer want to have personal digital experiences, we provide our clients with the choice to delete all of their information from further processing.

 

 

FAQs on Data

Are you going to read my thoughts?

Plain and simple, no. Our apps are designed to analyze your brainwaves in order to give you a score to let you know how on target you are for the state of Focused Calm we’re guiding you to achieve. 

 

What happens to my data? Are you going to sell it?

Healium’s application captures, analyzes, and provides you with scores about your stress and relaxation levels. 

 

We do not sell your data. 

 

At any point, you may choose to opt out of the measurements or even delete all data sets.
