Privacy Policy
Last update: 2023.11.15.
General info
ArguStress mnsX monitor continuously monitors its user’s metabolic energy generation and autonomous nerve system and gives real-time feedback about its user’s momentary body status during the workout. For more accurate feedback, mnsX must collects physiological and performance data during the workout and requires predefined parameters. After each workout, mnsX’s user can upload the training record into the ArguStress’ cloud, where the training will be stored, and also goes through a detailed analysis which will adjust the mnsX’s parameters so it will adapt more and more to its user’s metabolic and nerve system and improves the feedback’s accuracy for the next workout.
This Privacy Policy the ways ArguStress Inc. (“ArguStress”, “mnsX”, “we”, ”our” or “us”) collects, handles, and protects every type of information and data that mnsX collects during the workout and its user (“you”) gives us at the mnsX registration and at the mnsX’s settings.
This Privacy Policy applies to every type of information and data mnsX and ArguStress iOS and Android mobile applications collect. This Privacy Policy DOES NOT apply to our websites’ cookies (https://argustress.com, https://argustress-8cd92.web.app) and the personal information that Stripe collects at purchasing an item or subscription. They have separate privacy policies, please see the Cookies Policy and Third-Party Financing below.
By using your mnsX, you agree that we may collect and use every type of information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and as permitted or required by law. If you lend your mnsX to another person and/or you provide another person’s information at registration and at mnsX’s settings, you represent that you have all necessary authority and/or have obtained all necessary consents from such person to do so and enable us to collect and use such person’s every type of information and data as set forth in this Privacy Policy.
For easier reading, in the rest of this document “you” and “your” refer to the person who is using the mnsX monitor.
If you are not comfortable collecting and storing your data as described in Privacy Policy, you must not use mnsX and the ArguStress iOS and Android mobile applications.
We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of the policy, and in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our homepage or sending you a notification within the iOS/Android mobile application).
If you have concerns or questions, don’t understand, or missing something from the policies please contact us immediately!
Collection of information
To use your new mnsX properly, you must register, activate, it in our system, then set it up.
At registration, we ask you to provide a nickname, birth year, gender, weight, and height. We also ask for your e-mail address, however, we instantly create an unrecoverable code
(E.g.: example@example.com -> 52491), and we store this code. Please check the Communication section for more information.
After registering your mnsX you can set up its parameters such as connecting a heart rate chest strap to your mnsX, setting your heart rate zones’ value, bike power zones’ values, and/or run power zones’ values.
During the workout, mnsX collects your physiological data, heart rate (if you connected an HR sensor), and other performance data, such as power, cadence, speed, distance, and altitude (if you are using a bike computer or smartwatch).
All collected data that mnsX collects during the workout or provided by you through the mobile application is linked to the mnsX monitor, not to its user.
We DO NOT collect and store any personal information such as your first and last name, address, or e-mail address.
We DO NOT collect and store any route or GPS information from your bike computer/smartwatch!
In the ArguStress system, only the mnsX monitors exist, their users are ghosts.
Background Location Data on Android Devices: ArguStress Android mobile application collects location data in the background to perform Bluetooth operations. This is done to ensure that Bluetooth Services will resume smoothly when the app is resumed. Location Data is never used and stored in the ArguStress system (in the mnsX, in our cloud), and never shared with third parties.
Use of Information
During workouts, mnsX uses physiological and performance data to give accurate feedback about its user's momentary body status and stores the data for further analysis and storage.
ArguStress Cloud Analyzer uses the uploaded data to adjust the mnsX’s parameters to adapt more to its user’s metabolic and nervous system and give more accurate feedback. Also, uses the stored training records to improve its analysis performance and accuracy.
Garmin™ Connect IQ™
We have Garmin Connect IQ data fields and applications, which we are using to display the mnsX sensor’s feedback. Garmin Connect IQ data fields and applications record a FIT file during each workout and you can save or discard it at the end of the workout. Our data fields and applications DO NOT save any information that mnsX collected from its user or calculated during the workout.
Securing and storing data
Training records could be found on your mnsX and in our cloud storage if you uploaded them.
mnsX stores 8 hours of training records and can only be read with the iOS/Android mobile application (which requires a registered/activated mnsX). If you want to delete a training record, you must factory reset the mnsX (see more information in the Your choice section) or overwrite it with a new one.
You can list, download and delete stored training records from the cloud using the iOS/Android mobile application. The stored data in the cloud is protected with password authentication.
You are responsible for protecting the confidentiality of your account information and restricting access to your mobile device. You agree to notify us immediately if you suspect or become aware of any unauthorized use of your account.
ArguStress is based in Canada, however, our cloud servers are in Hungary and Canada. You can access our cloud anywhere in the world and only through our iOS/Android mobile application.
We are not using any third-party services to store your mnsX’s training records. When you upload data it is uploaded straight into our cloud and if you download one from the cloud it is downloaded straight from the cloud on your mobile device. The upload and download data are encrypted, however, it is your responsibility always to use a secured internet connection when you upload or download data to/from our cloud. ArguStress is not responsible for your failure to secure your own devices and their access to the Internet or your use of public, unsecured networks.
Data retention
We keep your data for as long as you delete it or factory reset your mnsX, except as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law or regulation.
If there is data you cannot access or correct on your own, please get in touch with us immediately.
Please note that in some cases, ArguStress may not provide access to your data, such as if the denial of access is authorized by law. There are also cases where we may be legally required to refuse access to your data. If ArguStress denies your request for access to, correction, or deletion of your data, we will advise you of the reason for the refusal and will provide the name, title, and contact information of the designated person who can address the refusal.
Your choice
You can update, or delete any personal data such as a nickname, weight, height, birth year, gender, heart rate zones’ value, and bike and/or run power zones’ value in the iOS/Android mobile application.
You can factory reset your mnsX in the iOS/Android mobile application, which is a process. When you start the process your mnsX sensor will be deactivated immediately and you must wait for one of ArguStress's employees to send you an e-mail where she/he will ask for one more confirmation of the factory reset. If you approve it, an ArguStress employee will delete every piece of information in our cloud system, cancel your renewable subscription and delete that Stripe profile too (if that exists). After the full reset, we notify you in an e-mail that the factory reset is done.
If you are a resident of the European Union or California, you have additional rights as described in the separate sections applicable to you below.
