How Does Oura Collect and Use Data?

At Oura we know that health data is as private as it comes, and we fully intend to treat it as such.

How is Data Collected And Used?

When you use your Oura ring:

  1. The ring collects your physiological signals, such as heart rate, body temperature, and movement.
  2. The ring syncs the data it collects to the Oura app via Bluetooth. Your app data is connected to your Oura account, which you created when you first set up your ring.
  3. The Oura app periodically syncs your data with our servers, which are also tied to your Oura account. Your data will be securely transferred over the available mobile data connection to the Oura server (WiFi or Cellular data). 
  4. The Oura ring, app, and Oura on the web use the raw data gathered by the ring to provide insights. 

Why Your Data is Synced to Your Oura Account  

Your data is uploaded to our servers so that we can offer you the full Oura experience and also keep improving our services. Saving your data under a single account also enables you to switch rings and phones without losing your data. 

Oura on the web uses Spring Security to protect it's resources from unauthorized access, which includes encrypted data connections, encrypted and hashed password storage, and the protection of data endpoints. Oura on the web also uses the industry-standard OAuth 2 secure authentication protocol to handle authorization of third-party clients. User data is stored securely behind a firewall, and the server is regularly updated with the latest security patches.

Your data is stored according to industry best practices and handled with care and respect. The data gathered by the Oura ring is stored on our servers located in Europe.

Can You Opt Our of Syncing Your Data? 

Currently it is not possible to opt-out of syncing your data to Oura on the web as it is an integral part of how your data is processed and stored.
