"Personal Information" is personally identifiable information and can include your name, address, date of birth, phone number, e-mail address, and personal fitness details.
Personal Information is collected by the Avail app when you specifically and knowingly choose to provide it by entering it into the app. Personal information inputted into the Avail app can be accessed via the Avail app.
The Avail app collects, holds, and uses your personal information primarily for the purpose of providing you with the services that the app offers. These services may include providing digital journaling and well-being tracking functionality, messaging, file sharing, organizational management functionality, assistance in the provision of healthcare; actionable reports and alerts for you, as well as other authorized users such as your verified care providers and support team members (your coach, trainer, etc.). The information collected is the minimum required to fulfill the purposes. The information RBL holds may include journal logs/entries, well-being information, training information, injury information, sickness information, ailment information, quality of life information, messages, files uploaded, correspondence, contact information, and analysis of other information held.

Your account will not be linked without you first expressly providing your consent. You can request that your account be unlinked by notifying your organization's Avail administrator. Such authorized entities will be able to export select data (e.g., journal logs) out of the app. RBL has no control over the use of your Personal Information if you link your account with a care provider, support team member, or organization, and RBL will not be liable for any collection, use or disclosure of your Personal Information by an authorized care provider, support team member, or organization.
