Once registration is completed, as referred to in art. 2 above, the User will be able to access a platform in the Virtuoso] software, owned by Healthy Virtuoso S.r.l. and use the Services managed by HV through the use of the App. The App works mainly in background, recovering useful information from other apps that are already integrated with the Health app and Google Fit. Through the connected applications (that already exist on the User’s device), the App then synchronises data from the last 30 days, automatically calculating the credits that will be assigned to the Use based on the activities available on their smartphones
3.2. HV’s Services can only and exclusively be used after having authorised that the data from and to Apple’s Health app for iOS and Google Fit for Android can be shared, as is requested when the Service is activated or by providing authorisation through the User’s device settings. Only this will allow HV to be able to use the information on the device and assign credits to the User on a daily basis. In the event that the User has never before enabled the Health app and/or Google Fit, the starting credits will be zero.
3.3 HV’s goal is to encourage people to adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle through the daily performance of “virtuous” activities for their health, using an innovative gamification tool based on prizes and on the activities the User perform on a daily basis. Therefore, the User will be assigned free credits based on the following daily parameters: (i) number of steps; (ii) sports activities (for example, running, cycling, etc.) (iv) hours of sleep; (v) completing the profile, and (vi) weight measurement and measurement of main vital parameters (blood glucose/blood pressure). Based on the score obtained, the User will be continuously classified in clusters that represent the level of progress achieved (hereinafter “Level(s)”). As the parameters listed above improve, and based on the continuity of the performance, the User will be given the opportunity to reach higher levels, or will return to lower levels, in the event that these parameters worsen.
3.4 In relation to the Level reached, the User will receive certain rewards (hereinafter “Rewards”), listed on the App’s dashboard, within the limits of the stock that is made available by the various partners involved in the initiative, at their sole discretion. Therefore, HV will not, in any way, be held responsible in the event that the User cannot collect the Rewards, due to items no longer being in stock, as is better specified in art. 6 that follows. At any time, and at its discretion, HV reserves the right to modify the thresholds (both for the credits and for the Levels) to reach for each specific prize.
