When you register for Lifesum’s Services, we collect personal data from you such as: your email address, first and last name, height, weight, date of birth, and gender.
When you continue using the Lifesum Services you regularly upload personal data onto your account such as, depending on your use of the Services: your calorie intake, weight loss goal/weight gain goal, activity/diet routines, your body measurements, and BMI.
In an ongoing effort to improve our Services, additional personal data may be collected from you. In such cases, we will notify you when the personal data collection takes place.
As a part of offering the Services to you. we process your personal data that you provide us with at the time of registration, such as:
As you continue to use the Services, you will regularly provide Lifesum with further personal data. It follows from the nature of the Services that we must process such data that you upload to the Services to enable the Services, for example, we will process your weight data and calorie intake to enable the monitoring and presentation of your personal goals (whether it be weight loss or weight gain). This processing is a prerequisite for us being able to offer the Services to you.
If you connect to the Services using a Third-Party Application (e.g., Apple HealthKit, Facebook), Lifesum will collect and use your personal information from such third party applications such as your username, name, profile picture, country, hometown, email address, date of birth, and gender, as well as such health data that you choose to synchronize with Lifesum’s Services.
For some of the data mentioned above, collected from you and processed by Lifesum for certain features of the Services, it may be possible for us to delete and cease processing for the future if you so require, without your having to terminate your use of the entire Services, i.e., not all data (submitted over time by you to us either directly or through third-party services) is required for you to still be able to use the Services. If you want us to cease processing certain data about you under this category, we will inform you about the consequences of such cessation. Specifically, we will inform you how any deletion of your data will affect your use of the features of the Services.
It should be noted that marketing sent by Lifesum to you on the basis of a customer relationship as a legal ground for processing personal data does not require a consent. Such data will be processed and used in compliance with relevant personal data regulation. Note that you may have a right to object to processing under this legal basis depending on the jurisdiction you live in.
Lifesum’s Services are based on a profound knowledge of best practice with regard to health. Lifesum cooperates with nutritionists, behavioral psychologists, personal trainers, and stress experts to stay on top of the latest research and science. In addition, Lifesum analyzes the usage of the Services in order to provide you as a user with the most relevant features of the Services as possible with regard to your personal goals. In analyzing the usage of the Services, Lifesum will process certain data for so-called profiling. Profiling means processing of your and other users’ personal data to analyze or predict aspects of your use of the Services, behavior, and location in reaching your health goal. The data processed will be user habits where we will track actions taken by you, such as when you move between screens, press buttons, and take actions on the Services. The purpose of the profiling is to monitor how engaged users are in different features of our Services, find out ways to make the Service more effective (fit for purpose). and vary the features or content to better match your individual usage patterns and preferences.
The profiling of your data can also be used as the basis for marketing towards other new potential customers on platforms other than the Lifesum Services, such as other social media platforms. Please note that this so-called look-alike process of recruiting new customers does not mean that you will receive any marketing. Nor does it mean that any other third parties will gain access to your data for any other purpose than for Lifesum to reach new customers, i.e. third party providers (for example social media) will only process your data on behalf of Lifesum as processors. See further under ”Transfer of data” below.
Lifesum’s processing of your personal data for profiling purposes as described above does not require any consent as a legal ground to be processed. If this should be the case, i.e. if, under relevant personal data regulation, consent is required for the use as described above, you hereby give your consent to Lifesum to use your personal data as defined above for profiling, for the purpose of improving the Services, and for providing customer support.
You hereby consent to Lifesum using all your personal data for profiling and marketing purposes via emails, notifications, or other messages, by Lifesum or Lifesum’s selected business partners. Profiling will be used for marketing purposes to enable personalized and relevant offers to you, based on your preferences. See more above under “Profiling.”
Marketing will only be sent to you by Lifesum; no personal data will be transferred to third parties for marketing purposes (other than possibly to service providers on assignment by Lifesum, however these providers do not have any rights to use the data for any other purposes than to what they have been assigned on behalf of Lifesum).

If you are a resident of the State of California, the California Civil Code provides you with some additional rights beyond those specified above. California’s Civil Code section 1798.100, et seq.provides residents of California the “right to know,” the “right to delete,” and the “right to opt-out.”
Should you wish to exercise this right, please see the section below which explains how to do so. If you do not have an account with Lifesum, we may ask for some personal information in order to verify your identity and your rights to the data subject to your request. This is because Lifesum is prohibited from disclosing specific pieces of personal information pursuant to a request under this section if we have not verified that the individual requesting the information is the individual to whom the information relates. As a consequence, we will match your identifying and authenticating information you provide as part of your request to the information we have in our databases to make sure we provide only you with your information.
California law gives residents a limited right to request deletion of their personal information. However, this right is limited by a number of exceptions. Fundamentally, if Lifesum has a permissible need to retain personal information, we are not under an obligation to delete such information, even when requested. Generally, we retain personal information so we may complete the transaction for which the personal information was collected; provide a good or service requested by you, or reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform a contract between us and you; detect security incidents; protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for that activity; debug to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended unctionality of our online properties; enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with your expectations based on your relationship with Lifesum; comply with a legal obligation; or otherwise use your personal information internally in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided the information. As such, we generally do not accept requests to delete personal information. However, we will respond to requests to remove personal information from some of our systems as part of a request to close or otherwise disable a membership account. If you would like to request deletion of personal information, please see the section below which explains how to do so. If you do not have an account with Lifesum, we may ask for some personal information in order to verify your identity and your rights to the data subject to your request.
Lifesum does not sell your Personal Information to third parties, and as such, there is no need for you to opt-out of the sale of your personal information.
California law permits California residents to designate an agent to manage their rights under California law. If you would like to designate an agent to manage your privacy preferences, you may do so using the mechanisms noted below under “Exercising California Privacy Rights.” Note that If you do not have an account with Lifesum, we may ask for some personal information in order to verify your identity and your rights to the data subject to your request. We will also need sufficient personal information about your authorized agent to be able to identify them. As part of this process, you must have permission from your authorized agent to disclose their personal information to us for the purpose of acting as your agent.
California law does not permit Lifesum to discriminate against you because you exercised any your rights under this title, including, but not limited to, by denying you access to goods or services; charging different prices or rates for goods or services, including through the use of discounts or other benefits or imposing penalties; providing a different level or quality of goods or services; or suggesting that you will receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
