FJUUL APP PRIVACY NOTICE

This Privacy Notice was last updated on 12.10.2019.

This Privacy Notice explains how Fjuul processes your personal data. Your privacy is very important to us and Fjuul is committed to protecting your privacy and to complying with applicable data protection and privacy laws. In case you have any questions concerning data protection at Fjuul, please contact: dpo@fjuul.com.

OVERVIEW OF HOW FJUUL USES YOUR DATA 

The Fjuul App collects data on your physical activities, and using particular algorithms translates this data into universal energy points (so-called Fjuul points). The calculation of Fjuul points is based on the intensity and duration of your activity. This allows you to consistently compare your days and progress, pursue goals that suit your fitness level or ambition, and compare your progress with others. You can use the Fjuul points as currency in selected Fjuul partnership programs, and redeem your points for rewards, either online or offline. 

WHAT PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND WHY

Data provided by you

When you start using the Fjuul App you are requested to register and create a user account (the Fjuul Account). For that purpose, we ask you to provide us with your name and email address that are used to authenticate you, enable you to use the Fjuul App and enable us to communicate with you.

Information on your height, weight, gender and birth date are also required as part of your registration process. This information is needed for optimizing the allocation of Fjuul points. In the Fjuul App you can give additional information in your profile, such as types of activities (e.g. walking, running, cycling, cardio etc.). This data is also used for optimizing the allocation of Fjuul points from your training sessions.

Data collected from fitness devices or applications 

The Fjuul App starts collecting data after you have created your Fjuul Account, installed the Fjuul App to your mobile device, and enabled collection of data from fitness device or application. When you enable collection of data from a fitness device or application, Fjuul starts to receive data collected by that device or application. Data is collected as long as a source device or application is on and you have enabled collection of data from that device or application.  

The exact data types collected from a fitness device depend on the features of the devices you use and the data collection choices you have made on those devices. For example, if you have not allowed monitoring of heart beat on your fitness device, Fjuul does not collect data on your heart rate. 

The following types of data can be collected from most supported devices: 

  • Type of activity (e.g. running, cycling, swimming, walking)
  • duration of activity
  • distance covered during activity 
  • number of steps taken or floors climbed
  • estimated consumed calories
  • your training goals 
  • heart rate
  • workout intensity
  • workout summaries

We also collect the following information relating to your fitness device:

  • device type, 
  • device id, 
  • operating system, 
  • IP address

You can manage your consents in the Fjuul app. The following data processing activities require your consent:

  • Collection of data from an external fitness device or application. The provision of the Fjuul service is not possible without collection of data from an external fitness device or application.

  • Disclosure of your Fjuul point count or a report of your fitness activity based on Fjuul point count to a partner (such as an insurance company) in accordance with the terms of a partnership program. You can withdraw your consent for partner disclosure at any time, but this may affect the cumulation of rewards in accordance with the rules of that program. 

RETENTION TIME

Data collection stops when user account is no longer active, or it has no active fitness sources connected to it. Data is no longer processed in identifiable form when user account is deleted or deactivated.

Data is collected as long as collection from a source device is enabled and the source device is on and your Fjuul Account is active. The account is considered to be active as long as we get new data into the App. If you close the background processing mode or uninstall the Fjuul App, the data collecting will stop.
