Privacy Policy


We pledge to respect your privacy, to be transparent about our data practices, to keep your data safe, to never sell your personal data, to let you decide how your information is shared, and to only collect data that helps us improve our products and services.

Lishtot Detection Ltd. (“Lishtot”) designs products and tools that enable deeper knowledge about the water we drink and use. This Privacy Policy applies to our water testing products (“Devices”), our websites located at, (“Sites”), Lishtot Software, and Lishtot mobile applications (the “Apps”). The Devices, Sites, Software and Apps are collectively referred to in this Policy as the “Lishtot Service.” By proceeding to use the Lishtot Service you consent that we may process the data that we collect from you in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

This policy may change over time, but any future changes will not affect data that was collected under a previous version of this policy. If any modifications substantially change your rights, we will send an email summarizing the changes to the address associated with your Lishtot account and provide notice on the Site.

And remember, we’re here to help. If something in this policy does not make sense or if you have any questions, please contact us at

When We Collect Data


When activating a Lishtot Device, you will be asked to download the Lishtot App or install Software and enter information about yourself. We use this information to personalize your water quality detection tracking. Depending upon the specific Device you use, it can collect data and will send this data to Lishtot. To see the full list of data that your Device collects, visit our Product Specifications page.


If you want to access data collected by your Device, you must create a Lishtot account. When you create a Lishtot account, we ask for some personal information, including your email address and date of birth. Your email address will be your Lishtot account user name, which you will use to log-into your account. We do not display your email address to other users. Instead, others will see the name or nickname you enter in your profile settings.

You can also create your Lishtot account using a different credential such as a Facebook, Twitter or Google+ account. We will ask permission to access basic information from that account, such as your name, profile picture, and friend list. You can stop sharing that information with us at any time by removing Lishtot’s access to that account. We will access your phone’s contact list for the purpose of letting you identify contacts who are Lishtot users. We do not store your phone’s contact list, and it is deleted immediately after it is used for this purpose.


You can customize your Lishtot experience by adding other types of information to your account, such as personalizing your profile with photos, participating in discussion boards, or sending messages to your Lishtot friends. Whenever you add this type of data, we collect it and store it in your Lishtot account.


Lishtot collects industry standard data from everyone who visits our Sites—even if you don’t have a Lishtot account. This includes log data that automatically records information about your visit, such as your browser type, operating system, the URL of the page that referred you, the different actions you performed, and the IP address you used to access pages on the Site. We use this type of information to provide you with an experience that’s relevant to your location based on the IP address, to prevent Site misuse, and to ensure the Site is working properly. We also collect data from cookies.


When you sync your Device through an App or the Software, data recorded on your Device about your activity is transferred from your Device to our servers. This data is stored and used to provide the Lishtot Service and is associated with your account. Each time a sync occurs, we log data about the transmission. Some examples of the log data are the sync time and date, device battery level, and the IP address used when syncing.


We do not view or store your credit card information. This is handled by our third-party payment processor. We store your shipping address so we can process your order through our fulfillment partner. If you are logged into your Lishtot account when you purchase something on our Site, we associate that order with your Lishtot account.


Whenever you contact Lishtot for help, we collect your name and email address along with additional information you provide in your request so that we can provide you with assistance and improve the Lishtot Service. If you contact us when you are already logged in to your account, the web form automatically pre-fills this information, so you don’t have to type it manually. You can also contact Lishtot on public forums such as Twitter or Facebook; however, we cannot maintain the privacy of your communication to us if you contact us through these channels.


To help you stay motivated on your fitness journey, Lishtot lets you add friends who are already Lishtot users or invite friends who have not yet joined. You can add friends in several ways, such as by providing their email addresses, or by accessing social networking accounts or from the contact list on your phone. When you share your friends’ contact information with us to add them as a friend, we will only use it for this purpose. We do not store your phone’s contact list, and it is deleted immediately after it is used for this purpose.


The Lishtot Service includes features that require the collection of specific location data, including: GPS signals, device sensors, Wi-Fi access points, and cell tower IDs. In order to send data from the device to the App, the location feature will always have to eb on. We will store this collected information in your Lishtot account. If you are using a mapping feature, we will send your location information to our mapping service provider so they can display your location on a map. They are contractually prevented from sharing or using this data for any other purpose

We only collect information about you when you’re interacting with Lishtot Products & Services.

Why we collect data


Lishtot uses your data to provide you with the best experience possible, to help you make the most of your fitness, and to improve and protect the Lishtot Service. Here are some examples:

  • Water quality tests you have conducted in order to build a global water quality map.
  • Contact information is used to send you notifications, allow other Lishtot users to add you as a friend, and to inform you about new features or products we think you would be interested in. Please see “Can I Opt-out Of Receiving Lishtot Emails?” for information on how you can opt-out of future communications.
  • Data and logs are used in research to understand and improve the Lishtot Device and Lishtot Service; to troubleshoot the Lishtot Service; to detect and protect against error, fraud or other criminal activity; and to enforce the Lishtot Terms of Service.
  • De-identified data that does not identify you may be used to inform the water community about trends; for marketing and promotional use; or for sale to interested audiences. See “Sharing of De-identified Data That Does Not Identify You” to learn more.

What kinds of data we share


Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is data that includes a personal identifier like your name, email or address, or data that could reasonably be linked back to you. We will only share this data under the following circumstances:

  • With companies that are contractually engaged in providing us with services, such as order fulfillment, email management and credit card processing. These companies are obligated by contract to safeguard any PII they receive from us.
  • If we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation, valid legal process (e.g., subpoenas or warrants served on us), or governmental or regulatory request, to enforce or apply the Terms of Service or Terms of Sale, to protect the security or integrity of the Lishtot Service, and/or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Lishtot, its employees, users, or others. If we are going to release your data, we will do our best to provide you with notice in advance by email, unless we are prohibited by law from doing so.
  • We may disclose or transfer your PII in connection with the sale, merger, bankruptcy, sale of assets or reorganization of our company. We will notify you if a different company will receive your PII and the promises in this Privacy Policy will apply to your data as transferred to the new entity.

Lishtot may share or sell aggregated, de-identified data that does not identify you, with partners and the public in a variety of ways. When we provide this information, we perform appropriate procedures so that the data does not identify you and we contractually prohibit recipients of the data from re-identifying it back to you.


You can direct us to share data with other parties. For example, you might authorize us to link your Lishtot account with a third-party app listed on; send status updates to your Facebook or Twitter account; or direct us to share data with your employer as part of a workplace water testing program. Once you direct us to share your data with a third party, that data is governed by the third-party’s privacy policy. You can revoke your consent to share with the third party at any time in your Lishtot account settings.

Ways you might share your data


Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is data that includes a personal identifier like your name, email or address, or data that could reasonably be linked back to you. We will only share this data under the following circumstances:


Lishtot provides many ways for you to share data with other Lishtot users, such as with the 7-day Leaderboard, Challenges, or by posting comments to the Lishtot community message boards. When you interact with others in these ways, you will be displaying your data based upon the visibility settings in your Lishtot account settings. Always check specific policies associated with any Challenge to understand what data will be visible to other participants.


To post to Lishtot community message boards, you’ll be asked to create a community username that’s separate from your Lishtot profile name. This community username will be posted next to any comments you publish on community message boards. Other information, like a profile photo that you’ve added to your Lishtot account will also be visible on message boards, depending on your Lishtot account settings.


Lishtot may offer opportunities to participate in contests, giveaways and other promotions. Any data you submit in connection with these activities will be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy, unless the rules for those offers note otherwise.


Lishtot may also ask you to participate in surveys (processed by Lishtot or third parties) that help us understand your use of the Lishtot Service. Any PII you provide to Lishtot (or supplied by you or Lishtot to such third-party survey providers) in connection with these surveys will only be used in relation to that survey and as stated in this policy.

How Long We Save Your Data

We store your PII for as long as you maintain a Lishtot account and/or as long as the data that has been generated by your water quality testing is relevant to the Global Water Map.

How To Edit or Modify Data

Data that you provide to Lishtot through the Site can be modified from your dashboard or Lishtot account preferences. If you remove data from your Lishtot account, it will no longer appear to you or others who use the Lishtot Service. Backups of that data will remain associated with your Lishtot account and in our archive servers.

How To Deactivate Your Lishtot Account

You can deactivate your Lishtot account by contacting Customer Support. When you do, data that can identify you will be removed from the Lishtot Service, including but not limited to your email, name, photo(s), friends list and links to sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Backup copies of this data will be removed from our server based upon an automated schedule, which means it may persist in our archive for a short period. Lishtot may continue to use your de-identified data after you deactivate your account.

Lishtot’s Policies For Children

Lishtot is not directed at persons under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect any PII from children under 13. If you are aware of a user under the age of 13 using Lishtot, please contact us at

Can I Opt-out Of Receiving Lishtot Emails?

Of course! You can opt-out of receiving weekly summaries, achievement notifications, contests, giveaways, surveys and promotional emails by changing the notification preferences in your account settings or by unsubscribing via the “Unsubscribe” link in any Lishtot email. Opting-out of these emails will not end transmission of important service-related emails that are necessary to your use of the Lishtot Service.

How Does Lishtot Keep My Data Safe?

Lishtot uses a combination of technical and administrative security controls to maintain the security of your data. If you have a security-related concern, please contact Customer Support.

Cookie Policy

We at times will use cookies and other technologies like pixel tags and web beacons to improve the functionality of the Lishtot Service.


Cookies are text files that are sent by servers to web browsers and stored on your computer. They tell us which parts of the Lishtot Service you’ve visited so we can figure out which promotions you may like to see or to alert you to software compatibility issues.

Web beacons and pixel tags are images embedded in a webpage or email for the purpose of measuring and analyzing usage and activity. Lishtot, or third party service providers acting on our behalf, may use web beacons and pixel tags to help us analyze usage and improve our functionality.

Social media tools, like widgets and plug-ins, are used so you can share information from Lishtot on other sites such Facebook and Twitter. These interactive mini-programs collect your IP address, record the pages you visit on our Sites, and set cookies that will enable the widget to function properly. Your interactions with these widgets are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing them, not by Lishtot’s Privacy Policy. We also use the Facebook and Twitter pixel tags to help us understand how effective our marketing is on those sites.


Although we would like to honor the browsers set with a “Do Not Track” signal, the Sites do not currently respond to a DNT or similar signal as it awaits the results of efforts by the policy and legal community to determine the meaning of DNT and the proper way to respond.
