This page is for informing visitors to our webpage and users of the Moodmetric smart ring, application and cloud service of our Terms of Use. These include our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information when using our Services.

About our Service

The Moodmetric Service includes the Moodmetric smart ring (available for purchase at the Moodmetric webshop), and the Moodmetric mobile application. The Moodmetric mobile app displays and stores the measurement data of the Moodmetric smart ring.

The Moodmetric Services also include Measurement Services for both groups and individuals, as well as training services.

The Moodmetric ring automatically collects physiological data when worn. The measurement data is uploaded wirelessly to a smartphone phone via the Moodmetric mobile app. You also have the possibility to choose to login to the Moodmetric cloud service, and then your data is made available to you there.

When purchasing our product or service, using our cloud service, browsing our website or subscribing to our newsletter, certain information is collected.

As a Moodmetric user, you are entitled to use our Service and the content we provide. Using the Moodmetric Service (and/or providing input information) does not give you any legal right, title or interest in the Service or related software.

The app and cloud software may automatically download and install updates and upgrades from time to time without further notice to you. These updates are designed to technically improve and/or enhance the Moodmetric Service. You agree that we may automatically deliver such updates and upgrades to you as part of your use of the Moodmetric Service.

The Moodmetric ring is meant for recreational purposes only. Vigofere Oy’s products are not medical devices and should not be used to diagnose or treat any medical conditions. Moodmetric’s products are not authorized for use as critical components in life support devices or systems.

What data is collected

Web shop

When you purchase our Service at our webshop, you will need to provide your credit card or other applicable payment method. We do not collect or store this information because we use a third party to process payments related to our Service. When making a payment, you should refer to the Privacy Policy of our payment processor Holvi.

Customer information and purchases

The following information is collected for all purchases: your first and last names, your email address, company name and company registration number, telephone number, address and other contact information. We also register possible product returns and reclamations.

This information is used primarily for delivery purposes, and should we need to contact you regarding your purchase.

We keep a record of information on our customers and other contacts in order to improve our Service: how and when our customer has been in contact with us, what was the reason for the contact, and how the matter was resolved.

Measurement data

The Moodmetric smart ring measures electrodermal activity and movement. Parameters calculated from these measurements are stored in the Moodmetric mobile app.

The Moodmetric smart ring and smartphone app combined provide you with measurement data to assess your well-being in terms of stress levels. We do not access your measurement data unless you login to the Moodmetric cloud service. Login to the cloud service is completely voluntary. It gives you the possibility to store your data (e.g. in case you lose your phone), and to easily review your data history.

The Moodmetric cloud service

Moodmetric data residing in the Moodmetric ring can be transferred and stored in the Moodmetric cloud. Should you wish to do you so, you need to separately agree to the terms and conditions related to accessing the cloud.
Login to the cloud requires the following information: first name, last name, and email address.

This is the background information that we store. We keep your name and email address separate from your measurement data within the Moodmetric cloud. Only the measurement data is transferred from the mobile app to the cloud, no manually added input is transferred. For instance, diary data from the app is not stored in the cloud.

We will never disclose any identifiable information about you to a third party. We can make an exception, with your expressed consent, in a case where you wish to share your measurement data with a third party, such as a healthcare provider. In such cases we provide access for the third party in question, with strict limitations and with you having the possibility to remove the access rights at any time.

We can use your anonymous data (no name nor email address) as a part of compilations, statistics and analyses for research, scientific and commercial purposes. We might use this data to enable us to monitor, review and further develop our products and Service, for our internal records regarding the use of our Service, and to support our sales and marketing.
