Engineered Medical Technology, Inc. and its subsidiaries (here on out referred to as “EMT”), appreciates the trust placed through the sharing of information that is important to you, and we want to be transparent about how the information will be used. The EMT Privacy Policy extends to EMT devices, applications, software, websites, APIs, products, and services (the “Services”). You will learn about the data collected, how it used, the controls we given over your information, and the measures enacted to keep your information safe.

Information Collected

When using the EMT Products or Services, the following types of information is collected.

  • Information you provide us
  • Account information
  • Usage information

Some information is required to create an account, such as your name, email address, password, date of birth, location, and your mobile telephone number. You may also choose to provide other types of information, such as a photo, company or notes.

Additional Information

If you contact us or participate in a survey, contest, or promotion, EMT collects the information you submit such as your name, contact information, responses, and message. If you choose to connect to your account to a third party service, EMT may receive information from the other service. For example, if you connect to Facebook or Google, EMT may receive information such as your name, profile picture, age range, language, email address, and friend list. You may also choose to grant EMT access to your data from another service. You can stop sharing the information from the other service by removing our access to that other service.

Payment and Card Information

Some EMT devices and applications support payments and transactions with third parties. If this feature, is activated, you must provide certain information for identification and verification, such as your name, credit, debit or other card number, card expiration date, and CVV code. For your security, EMT only stores the last four digits of the credit card number and the card issuer’s name and contact information. Payment information from your account can be removed using your account settings.

If you purchase EMT devices, accessories, or services through the tCheck website or application, you provide payment information, including your name, credit or debit card number, card expiration date, CVV code, and billing address. EMT does not store this payment information. EMT stores your shipping address to fulfill your order, and verification information for verification purposes, if need be.

We do not share your personally identifiable information except in the limited circumstances described below:

When You Agree or Direct Us to Share

You may direct EMT to disclose your information to third parties .

External Processing

EMT transfers information to our corporate affiliates, service providers, and other partners who process it, based on our instructions, and in compliance with this policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

In cases where a court order specifies a non-disclosure period, EMT provides delayed notice after the expiration of the non-disclosure period. Exceptions to the EMT notice policy include exigent or counterproductive circumstances, for example, when there is an emergency involving a danger of death or serious physical injury to a person.
