UPNDO (“application”) is a product of UPENDO, INC., a company incorporated in City of Wilmington, County of New Castle, State of Delaware, United States of America.
APPLICATION: the UPNDO mobile app, available for free download in App Store (for iOS) and Google Play (for Android).
CUSTOMERS: Are the companies that subscribe to UPNDO and make it available to its employees (our USERS). Companies that truly care about their employees’ health (mental and physical) as well as want to have a positive impact in our global community.
USERS / UPNDERS (“you”): You, our raving fans! Individuals that use the app, as well as the website, to perform activities (track physical activities, donate, compete with friends for a position in the leaderboard).
NPOs: Non-Profit Organizations (or NGOs) that are the recipients of the funds allocated by users.
The NPOs are selected by the CUSTOMERS. This means that different users will see different NPOs.
ENERGY POINTS (“points”): The points you earn when doing physical activity (such as walking, running or cycling) with data being tracked by your Health app and transmitted to UPNDO. Points can be used by users to allocate money to their favorite NPOs.
UPNDO POINTS are not real money, neither are a virtual currency. They are not exchangeable for real currency. They are the power to allocate funds from our CUSTOMERS to an NPO.
DONATIONS: references to donations or donating money means the allocation of money provided by our CUSTOMERS to an NPO of USER’S choice. The donations are done directly by our CUSTOMERS to the NPOs
USER DATA: means data, including business, technical, health and Personal Data that is uploaded by Users into the APPLICATION. USER DATA includes information that results from the use of the APPLICATION or provisioning of the Subscription to Customers or Users.
Physical Activity Notice:
The APPLICATION may include features that promote physical activity. Consider the risks involved and consult with your medical professional before engaging in any physical activity. UPENDO, INC is not responsible or liable for any injuries or damages you may sustain that result from your use of, or inability to use, the features of the APPLICATION.
Data collection and usage:
Users hereby grant Upendo, Inc. a royalty-free, perpetual, sublicensable, worldwide license to display, perform, distribute, copy, store, make, modify (for technical purposes), reproduce, otherwise exploit User Data. This includes but is not limited to publishing User Data on the APPLICATION’s leaderboards and newsfeeds. Upendo, Inc. may also aggregate anonymized User Data and usage data to create aggregate performance metrics.
UPNDO does not sell User Data under any circumstances.
This is something we take really seriously!
How does the APPLICATION work?
The APPLICATION allows you to earn ENERGY Points, through your movement (physical movement), which is then converted via our UPNDO algorithm into money for you to donate to the NPOs present on our featured list.
You can earn ENERGY Points by just moving. Every user is presented with a daily target of 100 ENERGY POINTS. Depending on the CUSTOMER’S subscription terms, these target transform into the defined amount of a given currency, which can then be donated by the USER. By movement we consider any physical activity that can range from your daily movement around the house and office to going for a bike ride, a run or even a walk. As long as your local Health app (Apple Health Kit or Google Fit) is able to track that movement. We aim to capture and reward any physical movement that you do.
World Health Organization recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity throughout the week, which approximately corresponds to attaining the 100 ENERGY Points on a daily-basis.
Our customer engagement team works with companies (CUSTOMERS) that use the APPLICATION to motivate you, the USERS, to move more. This is the visible side of our Customers Social Responsibility footprint.
Why do they do this? Because we are seeing more and more companies giving back to society and they are not getting the deserved recognition.
In accordance with these TERMS, you as a USER can earn points by:
Ensuring that you have your Apple Health or Google Fit turned on and connected to the APPLICATION, you will be asked on the registration process for access to read data from your local Health app.
By doing so you will enable us to process that information and run it through our internal algorithm that converts Human Energy generated from movement into UPNDO Points.
Our promise to our USERS and CUSTOMERS is that every single dollar committed by CUSTOMERS will be donated to the USERS’ chosen NPOs. We operate on a “100% for Good” model. We will not take any percentage of the funds committed to donations; our overhead and our operational costs have a different source. We aim to bring back transparency to donations. We do not camouflage our revenues.
We are a for-profit company with a twist, we have a clear mission of creating the biggest movement of active kind people in the world, and we are passionate about it.
