Why build on UP?
The UP Platform is not your typical health data repository. It enables the exchange of data in order to extend and augment the UP user experience and support complementary services. This can include data aggregation and visualization, gaming, marketing, rewards provisioning, and much more.
Other reasons to build on UP include:
- Three different integration options
- Access to real-time data and events
- Understand user context and affect behavior change
- Multiple engagement surfaces for users to interact with your product
- Monetization opportunities
Features of the UP Platform include:
- Open to all developers
- Two-way API -- write into UP and read from UP
- OAuth 2.0 authentication
- Pub-Sub for handling system messages
- SDKs and other tools
Key principles governing the use of the UP API:
- The data belongs to the user. We are stewards of the data and have an obligation to protect it and use it responsibly.
- Data can only be collected with explicit user permission. Only collect what you need and only use it as you say you will.
- User must have a mechanism to disable access and to request that any collected data be deleted.
Use of the UP API is governed by the UP API Terms Of Service. By using the API, you agree to these terms and conditions.
