What Information will be shared if I sync my wearable device to the UA System MoveSpring Program?

  • Some of the dashboard features and individual group leaderboards are designed to let participants connect with coworkers and compare data with each other. This data includes a participant’s name, steps, active minutes, distance, as well as a link to the participant’s profile if not kept private.
  • What administrators of the site can see:
    • Aggregate data: De-identified summary of program information.
    • Individual data: Includes participants, photo, name, sync date, steps, distance, floors, and active minutes. MoveSpring does not provide access to GPS location, or sensitive health information such as sleep or weight.
