Types of Information we Collect
The table below helps you understand what identifiable information we do collect about you. This list isn’t exhaustive and may change from time to time, we will be sure to update this table and notify you if this happens.
Category of Personal Data
What it means
First and last name, email address, date of birth*, location, department/team, employee number (or similar identifier provided by an employer if required). *Users who sign up to Unmind via one of our 3rd Party Health & Wellbeing partners may be required to provide us with their date of birth on sign up. This will be deleted as soon as registration eligibility is confirmed.
Marketing and Communications Data
Your preferences in receiving marketing and other communications from us.
This is inferred or assumed information relating to your behaviour and interests, based on your online activity. This information helps us understand the popularity of our features and to tailor your experience.
Internet protocol (IP) address, your login data, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, device ID, usage data, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access this website or use our services. You can contact us via the contact details at the end of this policy if you would like the full list of technical data collected. Technical data also includes intelligence experience information such as recording what links you click on and how often you visit certain pages.
Aggregated data is information that we collect from multiple sources and individuals in an anonymous format which allows us to prepare data summaries or summary reports for our clients (your employer). Aggregated Data does not constitute Personal Data as it does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity.We have an anonymity threshold of six people or more. This means that we will endeavour to ensure that we do not anonymise or aggregate any personal data where there are less than six people within the dataset to prevent the risk of it becoming identifiable again.
Special Category Data
Special Categories of Personal Data are data that include details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetics, and biometric data. Since you are able to upload details of your mood or mental state on our platform, the data you provide us may contain data relating to your health or other Special Categories of Personal Data. Using this feature is optional; Unmind will never require you to provide us with special category data in order to use our service.
How we collect your information

This enables us to better understand your experience by recording details such as how much time you spend on certain pages and tools, and which links you choose to click. These details assist us in understanding what content you and other users do and don’t like and hence, allows us to constantly improve our offering to you.

But, if you have given your consent, for example, for us to email you, then you can change your mind at any time. All you have to do is let us know (e.g., by clicking the unsubscribe button at the bottom of an email, or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Data security, integrity, and retention of your information
The security, integrity, and confidentiality of your information are extremely important to us. We have implemented technical, administrative, and physical security measures that are designed to protect your information from being misused or accessed by the wrong people.
Data transfers, storage and processing
Unmind are growing quickly and are proud that we can improve the wellbeing of individuals all around the world. This does mean that sometimes, we will need to share, store and process your Personal Data with third-party processors who are located outside of your country.
Our platform is hosted in the European Union (EU) within the Republic of Ireland (RoI), so your information will be processed in the RoI. However, as some of our offices and trusted third parties are located outside the RoI, there may be times when your information may be transferred, disclosed or processed in another country (for example, the United Kingdom or the United States).
Unmind uses mechanisms such as the EU Standard Contractual Clauses to transfer your information to the United States or other countries outside of the UK and EU.
Our policy on children
We believe that mental health is for everyone, but our platform has been designed for individuals over the age of 16. So, if you are under the age of 16, we encourage you to reach out to an adult or someone you trust but ask that you don’t use our platform.
