Information We Collect and How We Collect Information
Information We Automatically Collect Using Various Web Technologies. Like most Sites and Apps, our Services may incorporate technology such as “pixel tags”, “web beacons”, and “cookies” that allow us to track the actions of users of our Services automatically. Pixel tags or web beacons are tracking devices on websites can monitor the behavior of the user visiting the website, and cookies are small files that web servers may place on your computer when you visit a website. Services such as Yahoo’s Flurry, Google’s Fabric, Firebase, Amazon Web Services, and Big Query capture application analytics using a non-personal identifier (UUID). These automatic tracking tools allow us to collect Non-Personal Information, such as location information, information about your internet connection, browser information, information about when you access the Services, the website address that linked you to our Site, the website that you visit after using our Services, and details of how you used our Services, such as how often the Services are used and which features of the Services are used. This data is never linked to your Personal Information or Fitness Data, and we do not use it to identify you personally.
Mobile Analytics. If you are using our App, we use Mobile Device IDs, instead of cookies, to recognize you. We use the Mobile Device IDs and other mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our mobile software on your phone. These Mobile Device IDs are only tracking and collecting Non-Personal Information. The software may record information such as how often you use the Services, the events that occur within the App, aggregated usage, performance data, and where the App was downloaded from.
Information You Voluntarily Provide to Us. If you contact us by phone, email, instant message, live chat, social media, or by some other means, we may keep a record of your contact information (however, we do not automatically collect email addresses) and the correspondence for later reference to help improve our Services. We may also keep a record of any forms, surveys or questionnaires that you voluntarily fill out on our Site or through your use of the Services.
