|What Information We Ask For||Required Or Not||Why We Ask|
|Any input field labelled "Birthday" or "Date of Birth"||
If you sign up for a HeartCloud account on our website or our iOS app, you will see that we require you to provide your date of birthday.
HeartCloud uses your birthday to determine your age. Your age is then used to calculate your maximum predicted heart rate. We also ask for your birthday because age is one factor used to compute the upper and lower limits of each of the five heart rate zones. When you exercise while wearing your Apple Watch and then afterwards sync that workout to your HeartCloud account, our app can show you which heart rate zones you achieved and how long you maintained a heart rate within one or more heart rate zones
Once signed into your HeartCloud account, you can enter any medications that you are currently taken or have taken. These medications can be ones that legally require a prescription or those that do not (e.g., "over the counter" medications).
While we do not require this information, you can use it to log the date, time, and timezone of when you take a medication in order to see your heart rate or other physiological data in your HeartCloud account before or after you take it.
