Collecting Personal Information
In order for us to provide you the Services we ask for your personal information when you sign up. Such personal information may include your name, email address, postal code, date of birth, gender, sports interests, height, weight, profile picture, etc. (“personal information” or “User Data”). If you choose to sign up via an external sign up feature made available by Jogshog, some of the listed personal information will be transferred to Jogshog from your designated sign up account. If you subscribe to additional Services subject to charges, Jogshog will also require credit card or PayPal information from you.
When you use the Services additional personal information may automatically or voluntarily be collected from you. Such personal information may include information on your athletic or recreational activities such as location information (GPS-data) and other exercise and performance information, e.g. time, speed, time spent on your activity, cadence, heart rate etc. Some information is dependent on your devices and may require additional hardware. Further personal information related to you may be collected from User Generated Content either generated by you or by other Users.
We encourage you to at all times keep your personal information updated.
If you provide us with personal information on a third party, for instance if you invite your friends to join you on the Jogshog community, we will only use such third-party data for the specific purpose (delivering the invitation). We will not contact the third party further unless the third party contacts us.
