Congruence, LLC (“Congruence,” “we,” “us,” and/or “our”) respects your concerns about privacy and values its relationship with you. In this privacy policy (this “Privacy Policy”) we describe the types of information we collect from and about you through the Congruence application (the “Congruence app”), whether accessed via computer, mobile device or other technology (collectively, the “Services”). We also describe how that information may be used, with whom it may be shared, and how you can reach us to get answers to questions you may have about our privacy practices. Finally, we also set forth certain legal rights you may have, subject to applicable law, and how you can exercise them.  This Privacy Policy does not cover the practices of companies we do not own or control or people do not manage.

Please read this policy carefully, because by using the Congruence app you are acknowledging that you understand and agree to the terms of this policy. In addition, please review our Terms of Service, which governs your use of the Services and any content you submit to the Services.

We encourage you to contact us with any questions.



For purposes of this Privacy Policy, when we say “Personal Information,” we mean information that specifically identifies or relates to an individual (such as a name, address, telephone number, mobile number, email address or photograph). This also includes information about an individual that is directly linked to personally identifiable information. Personal Information includes “personal data” as defined by the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and “personal information” as defined by the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”).

Personal Information does not include “aggregate information”, which is data we collect about the use of the Services or about a group or category of services or users from which individual identities or other Personal Information has been removed. Personal Information also does not include Usage Information (as defined below) or other device identifiers that are not connected to Personal Information.


Below are the types of Personal Information that we collect:

Information You Provide to Us Directly

We collect Personal Information that you voluntarily provide in the following ways:

Personal Information when you use the Congruence app to record your responses in Congruence activities.

When using the Congruence app, you are requested to respond to questions that create audio files that are stored by Congruence in secure cloud storage. Congruence does not access these audio files except to service a user’s account. Congruence does not provide this information to any third party. Users must properly safeguard their phones to prevent unwanted third parties from accessing these audio files through the Congruence app on your device. Congruence is not responsible if any user audio files are compromised in any way.

Personal Information Collected When You Request a Trial or Sign In to the Congruence App.

When you request a free trial or sign in to the Congruence app for the first time, we require that you provide us with your email address and/or a phone number. We may also ask you personal questions (such as age, location, interests, etc.), so that we may customize your user experience.

Personal Information Collected When You Set Up an Account and Populate Your Profile.

If you create a Congruence account, we may give you the option to populate your profile with your first and last name, the city in which you reside, and a profile photo or avatar. Doing so is entirely voluntarily and is simply offered as a way to personalize your account. We will not access your photos or the camera on your computer, tablet, mobile phone, or other device (“Device”) without first getting your explicit permission. If you give us permission to access photos or your Device’s camera, we will only use images or videos that you specifically choose to share with us.

Personal Information Collected When You Purchase a Subscription.

If you choose to subscribe to the Congruence app, you will be required to provide your payment card information, which can include your name, card number, expiration date, security code, and billing address. If you subscribe from within our mobile app, your payment card information will be collected and stored by the third-party app store you use. If you subscribe through our website, your payment card information will be collected and stored by our third-party payment processor.

Personal Information Collected When You Sign Up to Receive Newsletters or Other Email Communications from Us, Subscribe to Our Blog, or Complete a Survey.

When you engage in one of these activities, we may collect your name, email address, and any additional information you choose to provide to us as part of that request (such as information about your satisfaction with our Services in response to a survey).

Personal Information Collected When You Email Us to Ask a Question or Request Customer Service, or When You Communicate with Us Via a Third-Party Social Media Platform.

When you contact us by email; through our branded social media accounts; or by telephone, SMS, or physical mail, we may collect your name, email address, phone number, physical address, and the contents of your communication which can include any information you choose to provide. We strictly use that information to provide the service or support you have requested.

Personal Information Collected When You Send a Gift Card.

Our Services allow you to send a gift card to another person. In these cases, we will use the recipient’s email address solely to deliver the necessary gift card activation code.

The laws in some jurisdictions require companies to tell you about the legal grounds they rely on to use or disclose your Personal Information. To the extent those laws apply, our legal grounds are as follows:

Legitimate Interest.

In most cases, we handle Personal Information on the ground that it furthers our legitimate interests in commercial activities such as the following in ways that are not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the affected individuals:

  • Providing the Service pursuant to our contract with our customers;
  • Protecting our customers, personnel, and property; and
  • Analyzing and improving our business.

Legal Compliance.

We need to use and disclose Personal Information in certain ways to comply with our legal obligations.

To Honor Our Contractual Commitments to an Individual.

Some of our processing of Personal Information is to meet our contractual obligations to the individual to whom the Personal Information pertains.


Where required by law, and in some other cases, we handle Personal Information on the basis of implied or express consent. For instance, in relation to direct marketing, we will obtain and rely on your consent in relation to the processing concerned.



You have a variety of rights and choices related to our use of your Personal Information.

Opting Out of Email Marketing.

You can opt out of receiving our promotional emails at any time by following the instructions included in those emails. Please be aware that it may take up to 10 days for us to process your request, and you may continue receiving promotional communications from us during that period. If you opt out of receiving such communications, please be aware that we may continue to send you non-promotional emails (such as emails related to our business relationship or emails about changes to our legal terms).

Limiting Information in Your Profile.

You can control the information we collect about you by limiting the information you provide through your profile or content you provide in user recordings.

Disabling Push Notifications.

With your consent, we may share push notifications or alerts to your mobile device. We use push notifications to inform you of important updates and to send you meditation reminders. You can manage or deactivate these notifications at any time by turning off the notifications setting in the app or by disabling notifications through the device settings on your mobile device. If you choose not to receive push notification, you will still receive in-app notifications in the “Notifications” section of the app.

Limiting Device Permissions.

With your consent, we may access your mobile device’s camera, microphone, or storage features. However, we will never import any photos or audio files other than those you explicitly choose to share. At any time, you can turn off these features using the device settings of your mobile device.  However, many of the features included in the Services do require the use of your device’s microphone.

Data Requests.

Certain privacy laws provide users with rights related to their Personal Information. Depending on your location, you may be eligible for a number of rights with respect to your information (more information is available below).

In certain circumstances, you have the right to request the deletion of your Personal Information, except information we are required to retain by law or regulation or as necessary to protect the safety, security, and integrity of the Services.

Right to Object.

If we process your Personal Information based on our legitimate interests as explained above, or in the public interest, you can object to this processing in certain circumstances. In such cases, we will stop processing your Personal Information unless we have compelling legitimate grounds to continue processing or where it is legally necessary.

Right to Withdraw Consent.

Where we rely on consent, you can withdraw your consent to our processing by using various means we offer, such as an email unsubscribe link or your account settings. This is without prejudice to your right to permanently close your account and delete your Personal Information.

Limiting use of or deleting your Personal Information may affect features and uses that rely on that information. However, we will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights, including otherwise denying you goods or services, providing you with a different level or quality of services, or charging you different prices or rates for services.

We will consider all requests and provide our response within the time period stated by applicable law. Please note, however, that certain information may be exempt from such requests in some circumstances, which may include if we need to keep processing your information for our legitimate interests or to comply with a legal obligation. Before responding to your request, we may require that you provide us with additional information to confirm your identity. You may designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf. In order to designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf, you must provide a valid power of attorney, the requester’s valid government-issued identification, and the authorized agent’s valid government-issued identification. We may verify the authenticity of the request directly with you. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the authorities applicable to your situation. However, we invite you to contact us with any concern, as we would be happy to try to resolve it directly.

State Law Privacy Rights.

California Resident Rights

Shine the Light. California Civil Code § 1798.83, also known as the “Shine The Light” law, permits California residents to request and obtain from us, once a year and free of charge, information about categories of Personal Information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared Personal Information in the immediately preceding calendar year.  In order to submit such a request, please contact [email protected]. Congruence does not share Personal Information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.


Nevada Resident Rights

If you are a resident of Nevada, you have the right to opt out of the sale of certain Personal Information to third parties who intend to license or sell that Personal Information. You can exercise this right by contacting us at [email protected] with the subject line “Nevada Do Not Sell Request” and providing us with your name and the email address associated with your account.



We may provide links to third-party websites, services, and applications that we do not own or operate. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the privacy practices of those third parties. The fact that we link to a website, service, or application is not an endorsement, authorization, or representation of our affiliation with that third party. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third-party service before providing any Personal Information to or through them.



We maintain certain administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to help protect against loss, misuse or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction of your Personal Information. However, no electronic data transmission or storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please note that we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you use the Services and provide us with your information at your own risk. Unauthorized access to your mobile device may give a third-party access to information, content, data you provided to Congruence or recorded using the Congruence app. Congruence is not responsible for securing your mobile device.



We only keep your Personal Information for so long as reasonably necessary for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, as required by law, or as necessary to resolve disputes and enforce our rights and agreements. We will keep your Personal Information and recorded sessions for up to six months after you cancel your account so that in the event you restart your account, you will have access to your recorded sessions. We may delete your recorded sessions sooner than six months after you delete your account. To dispose of Personal Information, we may anonymize it, delete it, or take other appropriate steps. Data may persist in copies made for backup and business continuity purposes for additional time.



Personal Information we collect may be stored and processed for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy in the United States where we are based or in any country where we have operations or where we engage vendors or service providers. By using the Services, or providing us with any information, you consent to the collection, processing, maintenance, and transfer of such information in and to the United States and other applicable territories in which the privacy laws may not be as comprehensive as or equivalent to, those in the country where you reside and/or are a citizen.



Our Services are directed at adults and we do not knowingly collect, or solicit Personal Information from children. If you are a child under the age of 13, please do not attempt to register for or otherwise use the Services or send us any Personal Information.  If we learn we have collected Personal Information from a child under 13 years of age, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you are a parent or legal guardian and think your child under 13 (or a higher age threshold where applicable) has given us Personal Information without your consent, please contact us at [email protected].



We’re constantly trying to improve our Services, so we may need to make changes to this Privacy Policy from time to time to reflect changes in the Services, our practices, or in the law. If we make changes to this policy, we will post the updated Privacy Policy on our website and indicate when it was last revised. You are advised to review this policy periodically to stay informed of our practices. If we make material changes, we may provide you with additional notice, such as posting a statement on our homepage or sending you an email notification, if we have your email address on file.  However, if you have opted not to receive legal notice emails from us (or you haven’t provided us with your email address), those legal notices will still govern your use of Services, and you are responsible for reading and understanding them. Your continued use of the Services after the revised Privacy Policy has become effective indicates that you have read, understood, and agreed to the current version of this Privacy Policy, to the extent permitted by law.  Use of information we collect is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is collected.



If you have any questions about our Privacy Policy or how we protect your Personal Information, please contact us at [email protected].
