IV. Situations, purposes and legal bases of Processing your Personal Data

1. Login via PUMATRAC Account credentials or via Facebook / Twitter account

To use PUMATRAC App you have to log in to PUMATRAC App with either the credentials (email and password) of the PUMATRAC account you registered for or with your Facebook or Twitter account credentials.

If you have registered for a PUAMTRAC account, we process your PUMATRAC credentials (email address and password) for login.

For login via Facebook or Twitter you will be forwarded to Facebook or Twitter where you have to login via your Facebook or Twitter credentials and grant PUMATRAC App access to your Personal Data from your public profile (e.g. name, picture etc.) and – if you give the permission in your Facebook/Twitter platform settings – your email address, date of birth and/or friends list.

This processing is necessary for the provision of our service, namely to provide you with dedicated access to your profile (see sec. 2) (Legal base: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR).

2. PUMATRAC profile

When you log in to PUMATRAC App for the first time, we collect Personal Data from you to complete your user profile.

This includes mandatory Personal Data like your (nick-)name, email (if registering via email/password) and gender, as well as information on your fitness goals, preferred activities and training habits. This processing is necessary to provide you with the core functionalities of the PUMATRAC App, namely customized workout recommendations and training motivation based on your fitness and training interest, habits and goals (Legal base: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR).

This may also include Personal Data that you voluntarily share with us in order to be able to use additional functionalities and to have an even more customized user experience, such as

  • information on gender, weight and height which is necessary to provide you with a customized calculation of your calories burned during your workouts and/or
  • information on your location which is necessary to provide you with information on trainers and workout courses near your location

(Legal base: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR). These voluntary data can be deleted from your profile at any time (see under VI. 2.) with the consequence that the described (customization) features / functions are no longer available.

3. Tracking, recording and sharing your workouts

If you want to track and record your workouts we are Processing your workout data (e.g. date, duration, distance or repetitions, speed, calories etc.). This data may be collected directly via the PUMATRAC App or indirectly via access to the relevant data (e.g. heart rate) from third party apps (e.g. health app on your device) and/or (fitness) sensors and devices (e.g. GPS and/or gyroscope sensor integrated in your device, external heart rate monitors etc.), provided you gave PUMATRAC App the prior permission(s) to access data from the relevant apps, sensors and/or devices, which can be changed at any time in the account settings.

Once you finished a workout, this workout including the tracked workout data is recorded and stored to the calendar in your profile.

If you have set your profile visibility to “Public – Everyone” in the privacy settings of the PUMATRAC App, your completed and saved workouts will appear in the PUMATRAC Feed and are thus visible to other PUMATRAC users.

This processing is necessary to provide you with the functionality to track, record and share your workouts to the extent that you want (Legal base: Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. b) GDPR).

4. Push Notifications

If you have consented to receive push notifications, we process your device token ID to send you push notifications to your PUMATRAC App whenever a new version of the PUMATRAC App is available (Legal base: Art. 6 sec. 1 lit a) GDPR).

You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time by disabling the push notifications for PUMATRAC App in your device settings. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

5. App Analytics

We also use analytics services from Adobe Systems Software Ireland (Adobe Analytics), Google Ireland Limited (Google Analytics for Firebase) and Facebook Ireland Ltd. (Facebook Analytics) to evaluate and improve PUMATRAC App and its functionalities.

These services use cookies and similar tracking technology to collect pseudonymized data on the usage of the PUMATRAC App, so called screen visits and events (e.g. like logins, content viewed, workouts started and/or finished etc.). IP addresses are either not collected or anonymized at collection. The data we collect with the help of these services is merged to aggregated reports on the usage of our app (e.g. numbers of users per day, visits/downloads of certain workouts etc.) and can’t be attributed to you.
