What Could Go Wrong?

What's the worst case scenario for your data?

PostureHealth and service providers may collect information from users such as name, phone number, email, and IP address. The company claims this information is not shared with third parties for commercial or marketing purposes, but says the information may be used to show personalized ads. However, given the relatively focused scope of the application, there is not much data being collected that could be used to target you. This app should be relatively safe.

How Does It Share Your Data?

Where is your data going? Who has access to it?

PostureHealth does not sell, trade, or transfer any personal information to third parties for commercial or marketing purposes. The only reason your data may be shared is to verify payment information, fraud prevention, or for analytics.
