3. SECURITY AND CONFIDENTIALITY

Your information is safe with us. We take confidentiality and security seriously and have implemented various measures to protect your data. Rest assured that we will never share your information with anyone without your explicit consent.

We will not provide your personal data without a specific consent from you as required by law, except as outlined under the “Disclosure of Your Data” section below. DuoPulse upholds technical, administrative and physical protections to help shield the security of your personal information against unauthorized access, destruction, loss, alteration, misuse or disclosure. Your personal data is accessible to only a limited number of personnel who need access to the information to perform their obligations. Please note, however, that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% safe. 

4. ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS AND MESSAGES

We’ll use the data you give us to provide promotional materials that are relevant. If at any point while receiving email updates from us, including push notifications or communications via our website (or those of partners), you can unsubscribe from our emails by emailing us or clicking “unsubscribe” at the bottom of any promotional message or by emailing us at finance@msqassociates.com. You can stop receiving push notifications by turning them off at the device level.

We'll work to comply with your request as soon as reasonably possible. We understand that you may not want some of the emails we send out, but it's important for us to provide customers like yourself with information on their orders and other transactional email messages.

5. TRACKING TECHNOLOGY

DuoPulse and our analytics partners use technologies like cookies, beacons and tags to help us recognize your device so you don't have to provide the same data several times during one task. When you visit our website, we use technologies to remember your session so that it's easier for you next time around. This way when browsing our website or using any of our Product’s features there won't have been an extra step for you.

We utilize local storage, such as HTML5, to store data and preferences. Third parties with whom we partner to offer certain features on the Products also use HTML5 to obtain and save data. Several browsers may provide their own management tools for removing HTML5.

Our advertising partners, such as Facebook and Google use technologies like cookies to deliver personalized retargeting ads based on your past visits. We do not respond to do-not-track signals. Interest-based ads can be a great way to connect with your customers on the web. But if you don't want companies knowing what pages or sites they visit, please go to www.aboutads.info/choices. Please note that this does not opt you out of being served ads. You may also discontinue receiving ads across devices by adjusting your ad preference in your Google account. Third-party trackers are used to determine when users have visited the product by "clicking through" our sponsored advertising or content hosted on third party platforms. Data is gathered using Google Analytics code which allows us access not only how often people click on these advertisements but also what kind of devices they're most likely being seen from. For more data on how Google Analytics processes this data, visit www.google.com/analytics. We will acquire your consent before using any trackers, and we'll let you know if there's a chance to opt out. For more information on the types of cookies used by DuoPulse, and your ability to restrict the activities of cookies, please refer to the DuoPulse Cookie Policy.

MOBILE ANALYTICS

With our mobile analytics software, we can better understand the functionality of your phone's current operating system and we are able to optimize our software for a better user experience. With this software, you'll be able to keep track of your usage and performance with the app on your devices, as well as how often you use the Products, events within the Products, aggregated usage, and where the apps were downloaded from. We may link the data we store within the analytics software to any personal data you submit within the mobile application. 

LOG FILES

Our website, as with all websites, is full of technical data that we gather and store automatically. This includes  Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. We want to make sure that you see all the great deals we have in store for our valued customers. That's why your browser is automatically opened and saved so when it comes time for another newsletter, everything from clicking on links will be recorded. These numbers provide a glimpse into the popularity of our content, which helps us make decisions about future content.

6. WHERE PERSONAL DATA IS STORED

All the information you give to us through the Products is stored on our secure servers located in the US. Any purchase transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology; all payment data is stored with our payment processor and is never stored on DuoPulse’s servers. Where we have provided (or where you have chosen) a password which allows you to use certain parts of the Products, take care to keep this password confidential. We ask that you not share it with anyone, and suggest changing passwords frequently so as best protect yourself.

Unfortunately, the transmission of data via the Internet is not completely secure. We want you to know that we take your privacy seriously. We will do everything in our power, within the boundaries of law and ethical practice as a company. We will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access. 

7. CORPORATE AND COMPANY SHARING

Sometimes corporations and other organizations and groups (“Partner(s)”) wish to make DuoPulse available to their members, employees and their families, patients, customers, or others. 

If you have registered to use the Products through a code, credential, or other means of registration furnished by a Partner, the Partner may have access to your name, email address, the date you registered to use the Products, and the date on which you last used the Products. The Partner may also have access to your anonymized general usage data.

8. SINGLE SIGN-ON 

You can use Facebook Connect or an Open ID provider to sign-in for our Products. These services will authenticate your identity, provide you the option to share certain personal data (such as your name and email address) with us, and to pre-populate our sign-up form. Facebook Connect and other services give you the option to post data about your activities on our Products or to your profile page to share with others.
