Code 4 Pro Privacy Statement
Code 4 monitors a person’s biometrics with a Polar brand sensor that is worn on the body. This sensor collects heart rate data from the user. Our platform then calculates heart rate variability information (HRV) which in simplified terms is the time in between each heartbeat. HRV is one the best ways to detect and separate sympathetic activity (fear and flight) from parasympathetic activity (rest, relax and recover), allowing a series of stress measures to be calculated. The system is designed to collect every heartbeat while the sensors are worn and transmitting. The Code 4 Pro platform also collects accelerometer and geolocation data from the phone. The purpose of this collection is to provide support to officers and dispatchers in the performance of their jobs.
Data Process Paths
The digital flow of data through Code 4 follows this data processing path: 1. Sensor to Code 4 App: The sensor (either a Polar H10 or Polar Verity Sense) establishes a direct Bluetooth connection and transmits data to the Code 4 App running on the participant’s iPhone or Android phone. 2 2. Code 4 App to AWS: Data is transmitted via a secure HTTP transmission over the Internet. 3. AWS Cloud to Database: Incoming data is checked for errors, encrypted, and stored in a relational database.
Security of Personal Information
All user data is stored securely within the App on the user’s phone or the Code 4 Pro database which is hosted by AWS. Please see https://aws.amazon.com/compliance/data-privacy-faq/. Code 4 Pro uses data encryption to protect data in transit and at rest. Data in transit is transported using SSL to encrypt all web communication between the application clients and servers. Data at rest is encrypted with Amazon Web Service’s server-side encryption using AWS EBS encryption. The Code 4 Pro platform also uses secure HTTPS protocols to protect data.
