The term “Sensitive Personal Data” covers many different types of information—everything from religion and union membership to health data.
When viewed individually, these data points cannot be used to identify you. For example, presenting the Sensitive Personal Data element of Body Mass Index (BMI) alone does not identify a person.
But, when such a data element is coupled with Personal Data such as email or name, this information becomes sensitive. For example, if the data point BMI of 20 is connected to the email address email@example.com, one can now reasonably infer that Jane Doe has a BMI of 20.
MyFitnessPal may process Sensitive Personal Data such as certain Nutrition and Wellness Data.
We want to make sure you’re aware of the instances of where your Sensitive Personal Data is processed. For those users in the European Union or a region with EU-like laws, you may be asked to consent to the processing of this information. If you do not provide this consent, your ability to create an account for MyFitnessPal and use the Services will be greatly impacted.
