What information do we collect?
We collect information you provide to us when you use our Services or interact with us in any other manner. This information may include your name, address, email address, phone number, date of birth, and any other information you choose to provide. We collect this information when you contact us, submit an inquiry, or interact with us through any other method in conjunction with your use of the Services.
To provide the Services, Kenzen products are equipped with sensors that collect health information including without limitation heart rate, activity and motion, core body temperature and skin temperature, sweat loss, and perspiration rate. Kenzen products also collect geolocation information to detect local temperature and humidity.
Our Services will advise you, and seek your consent, for information collection, usage, and disclosure where consent is required by law. In other cases, your provision of information is sometimes required by law and at other times is a result of a contractual requirement.
How do we use the information that we collect?
We process your information for a variety of purposes—most importantly, to provide Services to you and your employer. For example, you will receive alerts based on personal real-time and historical physiological information, daily worksite temperature and humidity information, and your own work/rest schedule. Your employer will receive alerts, summary reports of actions taken by workers and symptoms experienced by workers, daily worksite temperature and humidity information, and general work/rest schedules through use of a centralized dashboard. We may also anonymize and aggregate usage data collected through your use of the Services and share such de-identified, anonymous, and/or aggregated data with our Partners, including but not limited to your employer, for our general business purposes, for example publicly disclosing information regarding trends in the general use of our Services. Such anonymized, aggregated data is the sole property of Kenzen and may be used without restriction.
Additionally, we process your information for other purposes, including the following:
- To respond to your inquiries or contact you as you request;
- To operate and improve the Service and our business, including for analytics purposes;
- To comply with the law; and/or
- As otherwise disclosed at the time personal information was collected.
We use automatic decision-making, including profiling, to help employers identify and reduce the occurrence of heat stress, fatigue, and over exertion.
How do we share the information that we collect?
We may share the information we collect with certain parties, including the following:
- Our Partners, which include employers and other customers that use our Services
- Affiliated companies;
- Third parties that perform services on behalf of Kenzen;
- As part of a corporate sale, merger, or acquisition, or other transfer of all or part of our assets, including but not limited to as part of a bankruptcy proceeding;
- Pursuant to a subpoena, court order, governmental inquiry, or other legal process or as otherwise required by law, or to protect our rights or the rights of third parties; or
- With your consent or as otherwise disclosed at the time of data collection or sharing.
Through our dashboards, our Partners can access user information to help them make decisions that will reduce risks related to heat stress, fatigue, and over exertion. Where possible, employers rely on deidentified or anonymized information to make these decisions. Employers can also access information about individual users to facilitate real-time interventions. At any time, individuals using our Services can opt-out of the Services by deleting or discontinuing use of the Services, including discontinuing use of the sensors.
