If any of such Data allow us to know your identity, they shall be treated as personal data in accordance with the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (GDPR).
Who is processing your personal data?
MX Labs OÜ is an exclusive data controller. Our contact details:
Estonia: Lõõtsa tn 8a, 11415 Tallinn;
Poland: ul. Gwiaździsta 66, 54-413 Wrocław, Poland;
To maintain the highest level of privacy we are supported by a professional Data Protection Officer: email@example.com
Why are we processing your Data?
Your Data shall be processed only for the following purposes:
development and provision the functionalities of the Services which are based on the analysis of the data concerning health and facial images with facial skin texture and other physiological signs measured in real-time with smartphone, tablet or any other device equipped with a camera,
non-biomedical research for development our technology Shen.AI being used for the above analysis,
performance of a contract if you use our Services under its terms and conditions or in order to take any steps at your requests, comments or questions prior to entering the contract or within the pre-sales or customer service;
provision, maintain and improve the Services, give you access for them, understand your preferences to enhance well experiences or benefits using the Services, including statistical analysis of users’ preferences and behavior;
communication with you about promotions, rewards, upcoming events, and other news about products and services offered by us and our selected partners or other direct marketing.
What Data are we processing and how do we collect it?
If you want to use the Heart Monitor software or other Services which are based on analysis data concerning health and about facial skin texture and other physiological signs measured in real-time with smartphone, tablet or any other device equipped with a camera (using technology Shen.AI), you need register the account. Due to that, you provide us and we process your basic contact details: nick or name and email address, and additionally: age, gender, height, weight and – if you want – other information related to your health eg. total cholesterol or HDL.
The Heart Monitor software and other Services which are based on analysis data as above, need additionally your facial images acquired through a supported device camera for the purpose of analyzing your facial blood flow, vital signs and other facial features. Such Data is used to provide you with status measurements such as heart rate, blood pressure, pulse rate variability (PRV) and other vital signs. Those measurements are also analyzed with the Data you provided us during the account registration process. Please be informed that your facial images as above are processed only within your device and only during the software data analysis to obtain the measure results, and they are not stored longer or somewhere else.
If you want to apply for participation in non-medical research aimed at the development of MX Labs’ technology Shen.AI (research procedure for the development of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms), we need your separate application and separate consent to participate in the research. Shen.AI analyzes facial skin texture and vital physiological signs in real-time. The technology applies remote photoplethysmography (rPPG) – a contactless optical measurement technique of recording skin blood pulsations at different vascular depths. The rPPG signal represents beat-to-beat pulsatile fluctuations in the intensity of light reflected from the skin. While these fluctuations remain invisible to the human eye, they can be detected by a simple camera. The captured signals are then analyzed computationally to estimate various cardiovascular parameters. An advanced image stabilization algorithm guarantees the best performance and reliable facial texture extraction. Our non-biomedical research aims to develop an AI model that is able to measure in real-time some vital parameters, including systolic and diastolic blood pressure based on the short video recording of the person’s face.
In order to carry out the above researches, MX Labs shall need, apart the information about gender, age, height, weight, additional data: the values of blood pressure and optionally pulse rate measured with a traditional blood pressure meter in three separate measurements and a 2-minute-long video of your face (facial image). Video recording in the form of a video file will be sent via web browser to servers in UE controlled by MX Labs. We shall process these data anonymously, i.e. we do not combine it and store with any others personal data regarding your identity, e.g. name, email address, even if you provided them to us when using the Heart Monitor software or registering an account in our other Services. The detailed procedure of the research and instructions for obtaining the above-mentioned data shall be presented to you upon application to participate in the research.
Please be reminded that all above mentioned data concerning health, as special categories of personal data and your facial images as biometric data (however not used for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person) shall always be processed under your explicit consent.
Apart from the above mentioned data we in no instance process any others special categories personal data, such as information on your race, religion, political opinions or philosophical beliefs, sexual preferences or orientation or any information of similar categories. We do not require you to provide us such information and we do not collect it automatically.
To subscribe to a newsletter, to request information or help from our support, pre-sales or customer service you provide us and we process only your nick or name, email address and other contact details if you provide them.
