This Privacy Policy explains how Elysium Health, Inc. (“Elysium Health”, “we”, “our”, or “us”) collects, uses, processes, and discloses your information.

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into our Terms of Services, which also apply when you use our Site or purchase our Products. By visiting, accessing, or using the Site or accessing, purchasing or using the Products, you agree to the terms in this Privacy Policy and consent to the collection, use, process, disclosure of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with the practices described in this Privacy Policy, please cease visiting the Site, do not provide us with your information, or otherwise interact with us or the Site.

We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time. If we make any material changes to our Privacy Policy, we will provide notice on this Site or through other means. We encourage you to periodically review the privacy policy for any modifications. Your use and continued use of the Site and any of our service after we post any amendments or modifications to this Privacy Policy will be deemed your acceptance of and consent to this Privacy Policy and its changes. You can determine when this Privacy Policy was last revised by referring to the date it was “last updated” above.

I. Information Collection

What Information We Collect?

When you visit and interact with our Site (including when you make a purchase through our Site), we may collect and you consent our collection of some or all of the following information directly from you and automatically as you use our Sites or Products:

  • Account Information. Such as name, address, telephone number, email address, date of birth, purchase and ordering history, payment information, and other information you provide during account registration or when purchasing the Products.

  • Test Information.  When you purchase, access, and use our at-home test or diagnostic products, including Index, its accompanying saliva kit, and all the related platforms, applications and services (“Elysium Test”), you agree to provide and consent that we may collect the following Test Information:

    • Sample Information. To access or use the Elysium Test, you must purchase, or receive as a gift, a testing kit, create an online account and register your kit, and ship your sample (such as a saliva sample) to our partner laboratory and third party service providers (“Laboratory”). “Sample Information” refers to your sample and your DNA and other data extracted by the Laboratory from your sample for analysis.

    • Genetic Information. “Genetic Information” refers to the genetic and/or epigenetic data including those generated through processing of your sample by us or by the Laboratory, our contractors, vendors, successors, or assignees, or otherwise processed by and/or contributed to us and includes the results reported to you as part of the Products.

    • Test Results. “Test Results” refer to the results and other data obtained and generated from using the Elysium Test (e.g., biological age, system age scores, cumulative rate of aging, etc.).

  • Research Information. From time to time, we may engage in a wide variety of research, study and observation internally or in collaboration with third parties and may collect or ask you to provide certain information for such research purposes via, for example, a survey or questionnaire.  Such information may include: your ethnic origins, ancestry, demographics, personal traits, physical features such as eye color, behavioral information such as exercise habits, health conditions or other health-related information, your family history of those conditions, medical history, known genetic mutations in you or your family members, lifestyle information, etc.

  • Self-Report Information. Elysium Health may ask you to provide various Information at various times and places (e.g., when you register your Elysium Test on the Site), or you may voluntarily provide certain Information to us (e.g., when you participate in our market campaign). In some cases, if you choose not to provide us with the requested Information, you may not be able to access all of the Site or participate in all of its features.

  • User Content. This includes information that you create or content that you post or upload on our Site, social media, or public forums that relate to us, such as blogs, data, text, software, documents, audio, photographs, graphics, video, messages, discussions, comments, emails, or other materials that you create or provide to us through public or private transmissions.

  • Web-Behavior Information. It includes such things as data from cookies or pixel tags, or data about the device you use to access, use, or interact with our Site, such as your IP address or the type of browser you are using. Normally, Web-Behavior Information alone cannot identify you and has not been associated with you.

All of the above are collectively referred to as “Information.” The Information may or may not constitute your Personal Information under the law. “Personal Information” refers to information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked with you. For example, if your Information is aggregated, it can no longer be linked to you and thus does not constitute “Personal Information.” “Aggregate Information” means information that relates to a group or category of consumers, from which your identity has been removed, that is not linked or reasonably linkable to you or your household. One example of the aggregate information would be “approximately one-third of the 11,432 participants in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES IV) reported a cumulative biological rate of aging within 5% of their chronological age.” Certain Information may also constitute “Sensitive Data” under the law. Sensitive Data generally refer to a category of Personal Information that reveal racial or ethnic origin, or mental or physical health diagnoses. The processing of genetic data to personally identify an individual can be considered sensitive too.

For example, we may collect the above Information from you when you:

  • Register, subscribe, or create an account with Elysium Health;

  • Purchase products/services from Elysium Health through our Site or via other means;

  • Open or respond to our offers;

  • Contact customer service, or otherwise make use of our customer support tools;

  • Provide ratings or reviews of our products and services;

  • Apply for a job at Elysium Health.

Web-Behavior Information: We may use cookies, web beacons/pixel tags, and other technology (collectively “cookies”) to automatically collect information about you when you visit our Site or interact with us. As mentioned, Web-Behavior Information alone normally cannot identify you and has not been associated with you.

A “cookie” is a small text file that a website’s server places on a computer’s web browser. These cookies may be delivered in a first party or third party context. For example, we may collect information about your browser type and version, operating system, user language, ISP, viewed web pages, applications, links that are clicked, IP address, the presence or absence of “flash” plugs-ins, screen resolution, connection type, sites visited before and after visiting our Site, details about items purchased, and emails we send that you open, forward, or click through to our Site.

It is possible that one or more of our Sites that link to the Privacy Policy utilize flash cookies, otherwise known as local shared objects, to store your preferences or display personalized content based upon what you view on our Site. “Flash cookies” use technology to remember settings, preferences, and usage similar to browser cookies but these are managed through a different interface than your browser and are not disabled from your normal browser settings. Cookie management tools provided by your browser will not remove Flash cookies. Please see the last section under Cookies and Tracking for information on how to disable Flash cookies.

By collecting Web-Behavior Information we can:

  • Better understand how you interact with us or our Site;

  • Give you a more personal and optimized online experience by tracking your preferences;

  • Provide you with cross-context behavioral or targeted advertising;

  • Improve our Site and products/services;

  • Fulfill contracts with our business partners;

  • Help confirm receipt of and response to our emails;

  • Provide more effective customer service.

We may use Web-Behavior Information for the same purpose as your other Information set out below. We may also tie your Web-Behavior Information to your other Information. You can choose NOT to provide us with your Web-Behavior Information by disabling cookies according to the section under Cookies and Tracking, but please be aware that certain portions of the Site may not be available to you if you do so.

VII. Other Sites

This Privacy Policy only addresses the collection, use, and disclosure of your Information by Elysium Health through your visit, use and interaction with the Site. However, our Site may contain links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by us, such as social networking sites, third party devices, and links to retailers’ sites and e-commerce sites that sell our Products or Services. The Privacy Policy does not address nor do we control or have responsibility for the policies or practices of any third parties or any third-party sites to which this Site links. If you provide any information to such third parties, different rules regarding the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information may apply.  We strongly suggest you review such third party's privacy policies before providing any data to them. These other sites may send their own cookies or clear GIFs to users, collect data or solicit personal information.  We cannot control this collection of information.

VIII. Security

Elysium Health takes appropriate steps to manage the privacy of your Information and the security of the Site. We have implemented commercially reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security controls that are designed to safeguard your Information. Still, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, Elysium Health cannot guarantee that your Information is under absolute security with the existing security technology. If you have any questions about the security of our Site, or wish to report a breach of your Information, you can contact us at privacy@elysiumhealth.com.

IX. Retention Policy

Elysium Health retains your Information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law or to fulfill a legal obligation. Because these needs can vary for different data types in the context of different services, actual retention periods can vary significantly based on criteria such as user expectations or consent, the sensitivity of the data, the availability of automated controls that enable users to delete data, and our legal or contractual obligations.

For customers purchasing, accessing, and using Index, Elysium Health and the Laboratory stores de-identified raw data generated from your saliva samples for 3 months before the samples are destroyed (after we ensure quality control) and we will store your data (including your Test Information) permanently or as permitted by the law, but you may request deletion of your data as set forth under this Privacy Policy at any time. You consent to sample and data storage and additional analysis by us and our third party partners (including Laboratory).

Elysium Health will also retain limited information related to your account and data deletion request, including but not limited to, your email address, account deletion request identifier, communications related to inquiries or complaints and legal agreements for a limited period of time as required by law, contractual obligations, and/or as necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims and for audit and compliance purposes.
