Privacy Policy

Please take the time to read this Bon’App privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”). This Privacy Policy explains Bon’App's privacy practices for the Bon’App platform (the “Platform”) comprising the Bon’App website (the Website”), the application (the “Application”), and any and all services, member-to-member communication tools, emails, databases, data storage, and technical support. It explains what type of personal data is collected, how it is used, and with whom it may be shared. The privacy of your personal information is very important to us.


This Privacy Policy governs how we manage your personal information and protect your privacy. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and subject to our terms of use (the “Terms of Use”). If you have any questions regarding this Privacy Policy, please contact Bon’App as set forth in the section below, Contacting Bon’App.


By using the Platform, you agree to be bound by the terms described in this Privacy Policy.


Scope of this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies only to your relationship with Bon’App. It does not apply to the interactions that you have with any other individual or other groups through the Platform.


If you decide to access third party applications on your device from the Platform, or get to the Platform from third party applications, any information those applications collect may be sent to third parties and this Privacy Policy does not apply. Those third party applications may have their own privacy policies that you should review.


What is "personal data"?

"Personal data" is any data that (1) is recorded in any form, (2) is about, or pertains to, a specific individual and (3) can be linked to that individual. For example, your name, contact information, and the data you input on your profile are "personal data."

Personal data does not include website data or aggregated data.


How we may Share your Data

Bon’App may disclose or share part of the information that you submit to the Platform. For example, we use your information to process and personalize your requests to and from the Platform. We also use the information for support, to develop new Bon’App features, and new Bon’App services. We also use the information to show you a history of your activity, to provide you with statistics about you or your use of our product or services, or to provide you with a better user experience of the Platform. We also collect and store statistics and other information about the online activities of users on an aggregate basis. This does not include personal data about you.


Under certain circumstances we may be forced to disclose information to the Government or third parties, or at times, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. In the event that we need to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries regarding those matters, you expressly acknowledge, agree and authorize Bon’App to disclose any information about you to private entities, law enforcement or Government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate.


Information sharing by You

Certain of our features and services allow you to interact and share your information with others. Please consider carefully before disclosing any personal information or data that might be accessible to others. More specifically, the Platform allows you to share your personal data with the doctor, health care professional, nutritionist, or dietician of your choice. Make sure to select carefully who you share your personal data with as it is done under your sole responsibility.



What kind of personal data is collected?

We will only collect personal data that has been obtained from you. You may provide us with information when you register with, or subscribe to, the Platform.

1/ to comply with the law

2/ to comply with our Terms of Use

3/ to protect the rights and/or property of any other individual or entity, including members of the public

4/ to reduce or avoid a threat to anyone's health, safety or well-being,

5/ to provide services to you in a timely manner.


Also, any information you post in public areas (“Public Areas”) may be seen, collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages you may receive from time to time. We cannot control data you post in Public Areas. You post and publish them at your own risk. Any collection of personal data other than mentioned in this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use requires your consent.

We cannot control this and cannot be held responsible for the actions undertaken by users of the Platform.
