Collection statement

We are committed to respecting your privacy. We are bound by the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (“Act”) and the thirteen Australian Privacy Principles (“APPs”).This Privacy Policy sets out how we manage your personal information.

The information you provide will be collected by or on behalf of us and may be disclosed to third parties, including those that help us deliver our services (including information technology suppliers, communication suppliers and our business partners) or as required by law. If you do not provide this information, we may not be able to provide all our services to you. By providing your personal information to us, you consent to the collection, use, storage and disclosure of that information as described in the Privacy Policy and this Collection Notice.

About this Policy

In this Privacy Policy, 'us' 'we' or 'our' means Vively Health Pty Ltd (ACN 654 451 680) and includes our directors, employees, agents and our related bodies corporate.

This policy applies to practitioners, health businesses and consumers alike, and practitioners’ patients are required to get their patients’ consent to their data being stored in Vively and covered by this Privacy Policy and the Terms.

By providing personal information to us, you consent to our collection, use and disclosure of your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and any other arrangements that apply between us. We may change our Privacy Policy from time to time by publishing changes to it on our website. We encourage you to check our website periodically to ensure that you are aware of our current Privacy Policy.

Vively's privacy principles

Your health data belongs to you (not us), and you can decide how it is used: We believe you should control your own biological health data, and our goal is to make it easy for you to see, export, and delete your own information. It's also up to you to decide how your data on Vively can be used. If you don't wish to contribute your personal data for any particular purpose (for example, product improvement or metabolic health research purposes), you can opt out of that sharing by sending us an email at We'll never access or use your information in ways you haven't agreed to.

We respect your right to privacy and will protect your information: We'll work to collect as little information as needed to provide a valuable service, and we will continually look for ways to collect less. We will keep your information secure by prioritising data security in every decision we make, and by ensuring that our security practices stay up-to-date.

We don’t sell your data to advertisers or marketers: Your personal information is only used in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Where we hold personal information that was collected for a particular (primary) purpose we will generally use or disclose it only for that purpose and not for any other (secondary) purpose unless you have consented, or we are otherwise permitted or required to do so (whether under the APPs, the Act, or another law). The personal information that we collect is mainly used to enable us to operate Vively and deliver our services to you.

1. What personal information do we collect?

  • name and contact details;
  • age, date of birth and gender;
  • details about your current health;
  • your health data, imported from your device;
  • your glucose data, via a CGM;
  • your logs and usage of the app, including meals, activities, habits and notes;
  • your interactions with Vively support;
  • shipping information; and
  • billing and payment details
Your health information is classed as ‘sensitive information’, which generally receives a higher level of protection under the APPs than other types of personal information.

Your health data imported from your device will only occur if you explicitly enable this feature in the app, Vively will import your Activity, Sleep, Nutrition and Heart Rate data from Apple Health, Google Fit or other Wearable devices that integrate with the app. You can disable these integrations from your account settings in-app.

Your CGM collects blood glucose readings which sync to the manufacturer's software platform and is subject to the manufacturer's privacy policy. When you signed up for the Vively program, you requested, and gave Vively permission, to retrieve your CGM data from your CGM account. When you link your CGM account with Vively, we receive glucose data from the manufacturer to display to you in the Vively app. Vively creates insights, zone scores and metabolic scores based off your glucose data and activity, and makes this visible to you in the Vively app.

When using Vively, you'll likely add meal photos, titles, notes, and activities. You can also import sleep data, heart rate data, nutrition and activity data from your device. Access to this information is limited to those with a business need, like support team members, data scientists, product managers, and/or engineers.

When you contact our Support team, we retain the chat or email log as part of our records. If you participate in product feedback sessions, we may record the sessions for future reference. We'll always let you know verbally if a call is being recorded.
