Information Zevo Collects
Zevo collects information about you, including information that directly or indirectly identifies you, if you or your other users choose to share it with Zevo. We receive information in a few different ways through the use of our Services. Zevo also collects information about how you use the Services. These are outlined below.
Account and Profile Information
We collect basic account information such as your name, email address, date of birth, gender, username and password that helps secure and provide you with access to our Services. Additional personal information is collected about you when you choose to upload a profile picture. We use profile contact information so we can respond to your support requests and comments.
When you use the Applications, we will keep a record of the details of that usage, including the date, time, location, frequency and duration of the usage. We gather information from the surveys, photos, posts, comments, likes, ratings, reviews and other content you share on the Services, including when you participate in groups or challenges. Other information about your use of the Applications, including the screens you have viewed, the duration spent on the Applications and data files you have uploaded to the Applications. We are not responsible for the information you choose to make public in any of the community networking features available on or through the Service.
We may also collect information about you from other members such as when they give you kudos or comment on your activities.
Connected Devices and 3rd parties
If you link your Zevo account to other ‘fitness trackers’ and share your activities, they will be viewable on such third-party platforms, including your location information. You should use caution when sharing information via third parties and you should carefully review the privacy practices of such third parties. We may receive or collect information about you from third parties and combine and store it on our servers with other information we may have already received or collected from you. These third-party ‘trackers’ include Garmin, Samsung, Apple, Strava, FitBit, and Google. This information will be used by Zevo solely for displaying your own personal dashboard and challenge leader board standings and is limited to steps, distance, and calories. Zevo will never share any data with one of these 3rd party processors.
We will also store any exercises you manually record or challenges you take place in. However we will not at any time record location information with the exception of when you record an exercise session through the application.
Training, Workshop or Counselling sessions will be conducted via the online platform Zoom. You will need to access Zoom facilities on your computer or phone which is free to download and set up a user name. Zoom conversations are encrypted. We will send you our Zoom contact details that we use for attendance. for specific questions about that platform you should refer to the Zoom Privacy Statement .
Technical Information and Log Files
As is true of many internet-enabled services, Zevo may collect certain non-personally identifiable technical information using log files and servers. Web and application servers create log files automatically as part of their setup and configuration. Information in a log file may include IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, date/time stamps, MAC address, file requested, and other usage information and statistics.
We collect information from your browser, computer, or mobile device, which provides us with technical information when you access or use the Services. This technical information includes device and network information, cookies, log files and analytics information. The Services use log files. The information stored in those files includes IP addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and the number of clicks. This information is used to analyze trends, administer, protect and secure the Services, track member movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses may be linked to session IDs, client IDs, and device identifiers.
We work closely with third parties (including, for example, business partners, other companies within our group, subcontractors and analytics providers) and may receive information about you from them. Details of third party providers are set out in the section below entitled “Disclosure Of Your Information”.
If you are a client user (using the Platform as a representative of your employer), we may obtain further information about you from your employer, for example, to verify your eligibility to access and use the Platform; Any comments, opinions and/or feedback you provide to us regarding the Platform.

Categories of Recipients of Personal Data
We do not share your personal information except in the limited circumstances described below.
Your activities and activity data associated with your account are not disclosed by default. You may decide to allow others to view your summary activity data by joining an individual or team. When you interact with others in these ways, you will be displaying your data relating to the challenge or leader board (e.g., aggregate number of steps during the duration of a steps Leader board or Challenge). You can also join groups and make connections with other users. Other users will know that you are a member of that group and will see the information you share within the group.
If you are an Application user, please note that usage and activity logs provided by you during your use of the application are collated and conveyed to your employer in an aggregated or otherwise anonymised form. As such, your anonymity as an application user is protected by default. Please also note that we merely report the usage and activity and do not undertake any investigation or assessment into their veracity or legality;
From time to time we may receive a request from your employer to disclose your identity or we may consider it appropriate to disclose your identity in the absence of such a request. We will consider this in accordance with our internal policy on revealing anonymity. Your identity will in general only be disclosed to your employer where it is necessary to do so for reasons of substantial public interest or risk to the individual. This is only likely to occur in exceptional circumstances.
Except as explained above, we will not disclose your personal data to any third parties for any other purpose unless we have a legal right or obligation to do so.
Feedback and comments provided by you during surveys are collated and conveyed to your employer in an aggregated or otherwise anonymised form. As such, your anonymity as a Survey Recipient is protected by default. Please also note that we merely report the feedback and comments and do not undertake any investigation or assessment into their veracity or legality.
We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and/or private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We may access, preserve, and disclose any information about you to the government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate:
- To respond to claims or legal process and comply with law enforcement or security requests (including subpoenas, warrants or court orders);
- To protect your, our, or other’s property, rights and safety and the rights, property and safety of a third party or the public in general;
- To prevent or stop any activity we consider illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity;
- When we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation or prosecution of suspected or actual illegal activity;
- If we, in good faith, believe that disclosure is otherwise necessary or advisable.
In addition, from time to time, server logs may be reviewed for security purposes – e.g., to detect unauthorised activity on the services. In such cases, server log data containing IP addresses may be shared with law enforcement bodies or accredited third-party security firms in order that they may identify users in connection with their investigation of the unauthorised activities.
For personal data subject to the GDPR, we rely on several legal bases to process the data. These include when you have given your explicit consent, which you may withdraw at any time using your account settings and other tools; when the processing is necessary to perform a contract with you, like the Terms of Service; and our legitimate business interests, such as in improving, personalising, and developing the services, marketing new features that may be of interest, and promoting safety and security.
In relation to the above uses, we shall also process your personal data on the legal basis that it is necessary to enable us to perform our contractual obligations under the Employer Agreement, to improve or optimise our services, to maintain the security of our computer systems, to understand how the Applications or other services is used and to improve the user experience of the Application or other Services, to protect and defend our legal rights, for troubleshooting, and for data analysis, testing and research purposes.
International Data Transfers
We do not transfer any Personal Data outside of the EEA. However, certain third parties providing services to Zevo may transfer data outside of the EEA for example, for storage purposes. These third parties include, for example, Google, Stripe, Intercom and Qualtrics. If this changes at any point in the future, this Privacy Notice will be updated to take account of this change. We only engage reputable third parties that provide appropriate safeguards, and on condition that enforceable data subject rights and effective legal remedies for data subjects are available.
If you require further information about these protective measures, please contact Zevo DPO via email email@example.com
Security of Information
You will require a username or password to gain access to the Application. You must not share these details with anyone or store them in a way that may allow a third party to access them.
We use a combination of technical, administrative, and physical controls to maintain the security of your data. This includes using Transport Layer Security (“TLS”) to encrypt many of our Services. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Application and you acknowledge that any transmission is at your own risk.
Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features which are appropriate to the type of personal data you have provided to try to prevent unauthorised access or inadvertent disclosure, which may include two-factor authentication and end-to-end encryption.
Retention of Information
Information connected to you that is no longer necessary and relevant to provide our Services may be de-identified or aggregated with other non-personal data to provide insights which are valuable to Zeevo, such as statistics of the use of the Services. For example, we may retain depersonalized information to continue to improve the Services. This information will be de-associated with your name and other identifiers.
All counselling records will be maintained as required by the applicable legal and ethical standards according to the various counselling and psychotherapy professions licensing boards (e.g. The Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy), of the country which the therapist resides in. All Zevo Health therapists are based in Ireland. Recording of sessions is prohibited.
You have the following rights with regard to your personal information:
- Portability. You have the right to obtain copies of your personal data to enable you to reuse your personal data across different services and with different companies. You may also request that your personal data is transmitted directly to another organisation where this is technically feasible using our data processing systems. Please include your name, email and a clear description of your request.
- Access. You have the right to access information about the personal data we hold about you. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is manifestly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
- Right to object to processing. You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data where that processing is being undertaken by us based on our (or a third party’s) legitimate interest. In such a case we are required to cease processing your data unless we can demonstrate compelling grounds which override your objection. As outlined, we do not use your data for direct marketing. You also have the right to object at any time to the processing by us of your personal data for direct marketing purposes.
- Rectification. You have the right to request that we rectify any inaccurate personal data that we hold about you.
- Erasure. You have the right to request that we erase any personal data that we hold about you, based on one of a number of grounds, including the withdrawal of your consent (where our processing of that data is undertaken on the basis of your consent), or if your object to our continued processing (as mentioned above). Please include your full name, the email address associated with your account, and a detailed description of your data request. Such requests will be processed in line with local laws.
- Your erasure right does not extend to information which is not personal data. Please also note that it is likely to be necessary for us to retain your personal data for the purposes of assessing and verifying data that is submitted and/or held on the Application, and your rights under applicable law to request erasure may be limited accordingly. We also reserve the right to retain your personal data in an anonymised form for statistical and benchmarking purposes.
- Request to restriction of the processing. This enables you to ask us to restrict the processing of your personal data in certain circumstances, for example, if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
Your rights detailed above can be exercised free of charge in accordance with applicable data protection laws. Please contact your employer directly if you would like to exercise any of these rights. It is your employer’s obligation to inform Zevo via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that if you exercise any of the above rights to require us to restrict or cease processing or to delete personal data, and this type of processing is required in order to facilitate your use of the Application or other service, you will no longer be able to use the Application or other service following the date on which we action your request. Please allow at least 5 working days for your request to be actioned, once Zevo is informed by your employer of the request.
If for any reason you are not happy with the way that we have handled your personal data, you also have the right to make a complaint to the relevant supervisory authority in your country. In Ireland, the relevant authority is the Data Protection Commission.
