Please let me know if any concerns, thanks!
- Is personal biometric data accessible by Wyze internally? If so, will that data be used for anything?
User’s biometric data is saved securely on Wyze AWS servers in the US. It will not be used for anything other than displaying the info to users or syncing with other health apps, such as Apple Health, if authorized by the user. The data could be accessed by authorized Wyze employees who are administering the system and AWS accounts. The access is managed by AWS SSO which will prevent any irrelevant employee and external people from accessing the data.
- Will biometric data be shared with third parties? If you don’t currently share this data, do you commit to not share with third parties in the future? If you do or will share, what specific data is shared?
Wyze does not and will not share the data with any third party. However, if users authorize syncing data with another popular fitness app like Apple Health or Google Fit, some data will be synced with the user’s account as below:
a. Apple Health: BMI, weight, height, body fat, lean body mass, and heart rate
b. Google Fit: weight and heart rate
- If it’s shared with third-parties, is that anonymized? How is it anonymized exactly? Is it aggregated by region, city, postal code, etc, or is each individual user merely given an anonymous userid?
The data will not be shared with any third party by Wyze. This will only occur if users authorize syncing data with their own account on other apps.
- Is biometric data stored in China or accessible by Wyze employees or contractors in China?
Biometric data is saved securely on Wyze AWS servers in the US and uses server-side encryption. The access from employees is restricted by AWS SSO and we have a policy to prevent irrelevant Wyze employees and any external people from accessing user data. This applies to both employees in Wyze US offices and Wyze China offices.
