Data is Yours
Sleep is a personal topic, and your data belongs entirely to you. Legally you own it, it doesn't belong to Rise or your employer. This means you can ask for data or request that we delete it at any time. We’ll confirm through the app within 24 hours.
How do we Access and Use Your Data?
We believe in collecting the minimum amount of data necessary to provide a meaningful experience to improve your sleep habits. This includes interactions through the app that help to build your sleep profile, as well as sleep data recorded directly from the sensor.
There are 2 reasons our team accesses your data:
Personalized Sleep Coaching
We believe that to have meaningful improvements to your life through sleep, it is important to augment automated recommendations with expert human advice. Our coaches explore data to investigate anomalous instances based on previous sleep patterns, and aren’t “reading” data as such. That said, we understand sensitivity towards privacy and will allow users to opt-out of any personalized human intervention while still reaping the benefits of the program.
Our under-mattress sleep sensor is the most seamless way of measuring sleep data. The tradeoff is that the sensor must be calibrated to properly account for the specifics of your sleep setup. Factors like mattress thickness, sleep position, or the presence of a partner (or pet) in bed all affect measurements. While most of the calibration is automated, some cases are flagged for our to investigate and ensure optimal accuracy.
