Privacy Policy

We recently revised our Privacy Policy. Review the summary of changes and view the updated policy below. Previous versions of our Privacy Policy are contained in the archive.

The HeadUp Privacy Policy was last updated on February 27, 2020.

Your privacy is important to HeadUp, so we’ve developed a Privacy Policy that covers how we collect, use, disclose, transfer, and store your Personal Information. In addition to this Privacy Policy, we provide additional data and privacy information embedded in our Mobile Application for certain features that ask to use or collect your Personal Information.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

You may be asked to provide your Personal Information anytime you are in contact with HeadUp. HeadUp may use your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. HeadUp may also combine it with other information to provide and improve our product and content. You are not required to provide the Personal Information that we have requested, but, if you choose not to do so, in many cases we will not be able to provide you with some elements of – or all of – our products and content or respond to any queries you may have.

We will only use and share your Personal Information when directed or requested by you, as necessary for us to operate our business and provide services to you, to comply with legal, regulatory or administrative requirements of governmental authorities, or as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law. We do not sell, disclose, or share your Personal Information with any Third Parties except as indicated in this Privacy Policy, or with your consent, or as required by law.


Sensitive Information

This refers to credit or debit card numbers, personal financial account information, governmental identification numbers, passport numbers, driver’s licence numbers or similar personal identifiers, racial or ethnic origin, physical or mental health condition or information, or other employment, financial or health information.

Personal information we collect


When You Visit our Website

You are free to explore our Website without providing any personal information about yourself. When you visit our Website, we collect Navigational Information and when you register for our Mobile Application, we request that you provide Personal Information about yourself to create a HeadUp Member Account and to populate your account.

When You Use our Mobile Application

We use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our Mobile Application on your mobile device. This software may record information such as how often you use the application, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, performance data, and where the application was downloaded from. In addition to information we collect on our Website, when you use our Mobile Application we may also collect your city location, device model and version, device identifier (or “UDID”), OS version, and your HeadUp credentials and Member Account information.

We send push notifications from time to time in order to update you about events or promotions. If you no longer wish to receive such communications, you may turn them off at the device level.

We may link information we store within the analytics software to Personal Information you submit within the Mobile Application. We do this to improve the product and content offering we provide and to improve our marketing, analytics and Mobile Application functionality.

Personal Information collected about you

In order for HeadUp to provide you with our services, We collect both anonymous and Personal Information about you. Personal Information constitutes data that can be used to identify or contact a single person. You are under no obligation to provide any Personal Information to HeadUp at any time.

Your HeadUp Member Account

The information added to your Member Account, either by your providing the information or when a Linked Service adds the information with your permission, is stored and managed on our Service Providers’ servers. This information is then used to provide you with analysis of your data and  personalised insights and recommendations to facilitate greater understanding of your health. HeadUp provides the Member Account to our members for their own personal information needs, and we use it to meet HeadUp’s related needs.

  • For the purposes of your use of the HeadUp Website or your Member Account, Personal Information includes, without being limited to, the following:

  • Your contact information, including your first name and last name, phone number, email address, and contact preferences

  • Information you provide about your health, fitness, mood, and related wellbeing activities

  • Your gender, height, weight, age, and date of birth

  • Linked Service data, such as physical activity, sleep, and heart rate from an external wearable device you link to the HeadUp Mobile Application

  • Additional information you may provide in the course of submitting queries to HeadUp or responding to HeadUp Mobile Application surveys, questionnaires, or other product / market research surveys HeadUp may send you from time to time

  • Mobile Application tracking data, such as your device(s) identifiers and IP address

Linked Services

As a HeadUp Member, you are able to connect one or more smart devices, third party data sources or activity trackers to your Member Account. These devices and data sources track, among other things, your steps activity, sleep patterns, heart rate, and other health or related data, as well as self-entered data, such as your height, weight, and age, and calculated or inferred data such as BMI. From this information, HeadUp is able to calculate an overall wellbeing / health score for provided data points and analyse your sleep, activity, heart rate and other health-related patterns to provide you with insights into trends and comparisons against benchmarks.

We will not link your device or third party data source data with the HeadUp Mobile Application without your explicit and informed consent to do so. You may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting HeadUp and providing notice that you wish to withdraw your consent to this Privacy Policy or you may revoke permissions for the HeadUp Mobile Application from within your device or data source settings.

Depending on the smart device or activity tracker or third party data source you connect, the data we may collect may vary. Typically, the activity tracking, smart device manufacturers or third party data sources have their own specific privacy policies available, which outline what data the device or software collects. We urge you to review the corresponding privacy policy for your device or third party data source to know what specific data points your device or third party data source collects about you.

You may be able to link your Member account to Social Media Sites (“SMS”) accounts such as your Facebook account when using HeadUp Services. By linking your SMS account with your HeadUp account, you permit us to access your information on that SMS. The information we collect from your SMS account may depend on your privacy settings with that SMS, which may enable you to control the information we collect via the SMS account by adjusting your privacy settings on that SMS. You can also de-link your SMS account from HeadUp at any time.

Cookies and Other Technologies

HeadUp’s Website, Mobile Application, email messages, and Service Providers may use “cookies” and other technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons. These technologies help HeadUp improve its understanding of Member Account behaviour and tell us which parts of our Website or Mobile Application people have visited and functionality that has been used and personalise and customise content, so that your settings are ‘remembered’ when you log in (for example, knowing your name enables HeadUp to personalise content to you). To the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered Personal Information by local law, we treat these as Personal Information. As is true of most internet services, we also track some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, language settings, browser type Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit websites and applications, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

If you wish to find out more about cookies and find out how to disable them, you can visit www.aboutcookies.org.uk/.

In some of our email messages, we use pixel tags to inform us whether an email has been opened or not. We may use this information to optimise or reduce future messages sent to customers.

Data Storage and Security of your Personal Information

We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your Personal Information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure and preserve the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your Personal Information. This includes the encryption of your Personal Information in transit via Transport Layer Security (TLS) and at rest, salting and hashing of all passwords, and a range of information security and data privacy policies and procedures within the HeadUp organisation which all relevant staff and contractors must follow. To ensure your Personal Information is secure, we communicate our privacy and security guidelines to all HeadUp employees and contractors and strictly enforce information security and privacy safeguards within the organisation.

We secure the Personal Information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure.
