We do not share your personal data with any third party for direct marketing purposes.
We use the information that we collect from you for the following purposes:
- To install the App and register you as a new App user. The legal basis for this is your consent. You can withdraw this consent at any time by deleting your account on the App.
- To enable you to use the App and all of its features. The legal basis for this is the performance of a contract. However some features will require specific consent, such as accessing content on your Device. Where you provide consent you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time.
- To analyse how our users user the App and monitor trends. We rely on legitimate interests for this processing and it helps us to develop the features available, test and improve the App and grow our business.
- To administer and protect our business and this App including troubleshooting, data analysis and system testing. We rely on legitimate interests to secure our App, provide administration and IT services and ensure a good experience for users.

Other users and accounts that you interact and communicate with.
When you use features of the App you can choose who can see your challenges, posts and other information. These can be set to either public or private. Other users with whom you connect can see your position in the Leader board and if you send messages through the App then the recipient can see the content that you send. Other users can re-share content that you have provided to them with other users in their network with whom you are not connected. You should therefore carefully consider who you share content with.
New owner of the App
We may choose to sell, transfer or merge parts of our business or our assets to or with a third party. Alternatively, we may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them. If a change happens to our business, then we may transfer your information to the new owner.
Third party partners and service providers
We may share your information with service providers acting as processors who provide us with IT and system administration services. We may also share your information with our professional advisers including lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers.
We provide aggregated data to advertisers and other partners to help them better understand our audience and for market research purposes. However we do not share any information that will personally identify you.
Our servers are based in the UK and we do not host your personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA). However some of our external third parties may be based outside the EEA so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
- We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission.
- Where we use certain service providers, we may use standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.
- Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US.
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure cloud based servers. You will have chosen a password that enables you to access the App. You are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way.
Ensure that when you are using public features of the App or sharing information that you do not submit any personal data that you do not want to be seen, collected or used by other users.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator when we are legally required to do so.
We will hold your data whilst your account is active. An account is active until you delete it or you have not logged in for 10 years, whichever comes first. You can delete your account by going to Settings within the App.
When you delete your account we will delete all of your content and you will no longer be able to log in or access it. However please note that content you have shared with other users will not be deleted.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data without deleting your account: see Your legal rights
In some circumstances we will anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
Under certain circumstances you have the following rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data.
This is commonly known as a "data subject access request". This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
You can object to the processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:
(I) if you want us to establish the data's accuracy;
(II) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it;
(III) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or
(IV) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
You can request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
You have the right to withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
You can exercise any of these rights at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Consent means processing your personal data where you have signified your agreement by a statement or clear opt-in to processing for a specific purpose. Consent will only be valid if it is a freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of what you want. You can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us.
Legitimate Interest means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/product and the best and most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
Performance of Contract means processing your data where it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract.
Comply with a legal obligation means processing your personal data where it is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation that we are subject to.
