The protection of your personal data is of particular concern to us at FightAthlete. Therefore, we comply with the legal requirements when we collect and process your personal data. Below you will find extensive information about the scope and purpose of collecting data.
Version: Oktober 2017
Principle of anonymous data use
In principle, our offers (FightAthlete) can be used without providing personal data. The use of individual services on our website can therefore entail divergent regulations which in this case are separately explained below. The legal basis for data protection can be found in the Dutch Data Protection Act (Wbp).
When you access our website or App, some information, such as IP address, is transferred. You are also providing information about the terminal device used (PC, smartphone, tablet, etc.), the browser used (Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, etc.), time of visit to the website, the so-called referrer and quantity of data transferred.
We cannot use these data to identify an individual user. We only use this information to determine how attractive our offer is and to improve its performance or contents, if necessary, and make its design even more interesting for you.
However, we would like to point out that in the case of static IP address personal identification is possible by RIPE query in individual cases, although we do not perform this. Nevertheless, this website is accessible for both static and dynamic IP addresses assigned.
The term “personal data” is defined in the Dutch Data Protection Act. Thereby, it is described as details of personal or material circumstances regarding a specific or identifiable natural person. These include, for example, your real name, address, phone number or date of birth.
Collecting and processing personal data
Personal data are collected by us, only if you supply them to us, for example when you contact us, in particular by registering a FightAthlete account, placing an order, requesting information or publishing personal data in our FightAthlete App in your profile.
We use the personal data provided by you only to the extent that your data are necessary for rendering or processing our services. We save your data for as long as it is necessary to reach the envisaged objectives or until you remove your account or for as long as legal storage periods require the data to be retained. Finally, your data are removed or blocked according to the legal regulations.
Registration of FightAthlete accounts
We require only the following data for registration:
- name and surname
- Country of residence
- e-mail address
Moreover, you must acknowledge our Privacy Statement and accept our General Terms and Conditions of Business and cancellation conditions.
Further, we offer you the possibility to create your FightAthlete account via your Facebook account or link it to your Facebook profile. You can register or log in with us by your Facebook account, if you simply use the Facebook button when registering your FightAthlete account instead of other possibilities. You will then be directed to the Facebook page (where you must log in or you need to have an account) and you will be told which data on Facebook we need from you, that is, first of all, your public profile information, such as name, surname, gender and e-mail address which you have saved there. This is necessary for identification, so that a secure FightAthlete account can be created for you. This also helps us show you which of your friends have already joined FightAthlete. Your Facebook profile and your FightAthlete account are permanently linked by the e-mail address. We save your e-mail data here and we will contact you at this address with information, if necessary. We also take note of your registration with us via Facebook. As soon as you log in to Facebook, you can also log in with us. Without your consent, we will not forward any of your data to Facebook. Important: We do not find out your Facebook access data at any point and we have no possibility to post anything on your Facebook profile, without it having been approved by you separately. You can find out how Facebook handles privacy settings by consulting the Facebook Data Protection Policy (https://www.facebook.com/policy.php) and Terms and Conditions of Use (https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms); there you will also find the valid provisions for all above-mentioned possibilities of logging in and registering with us. Other Facebook functions, such as the “Like” button, which you will find in the following chapter of this Privacy Statement have got nothing to do with this login possibility and are displayed separately from your FightAthlete account.
Data collection, processing and use within the framework of FightAthlete App
To use our FightAthlete App you must have a FightAthlete account. You have already found out above what data are collected for this purpose (cf. Point 4). To provide you with the best FightAthlete experience possible, our approach is partly based on publishing specific information of our users, i.e. even your information. We are going to introduce our programme to you in more detail below, so that you can decide for yourself whether and which data you want to publish.
This introduction includes the following information, in particular:
- public profile (photo, name, surname, training location, motivation)
- condition (estimated fitness level, desired objective)
- training information (period and type of training unit, total number of training sessions, note, photo)
- followed by/follows (persons who follow the user, persons followed by the user)
You become visible in the FightAthlete App with the data in your public profile. This information helps other users to find you in FightAthlete App. At the same time, other users can see your name and surname (if provided), fitness level and your profile photo, and they can recognise you by this information, if necessary.
The FightAthlete App saves all your successfully completed training you have consumed as well as related information, such as self-uploaded photos or notes. Other users can see these data and can consider them as incentive for themselves, leave comments or decide whether they want to follow you.
Moreover, our FightAthleteApp also provides the users with the possibility to be followed (“Followed by”) to support or encourage them in their training experience, or to compete with one another. For this purpose, users can be searched for by the name registered in the public profile or, after linking of a FightAthlete account to a Facebook account, via their Friends list. You will be notified about new followers on the website or mobile App by push message.
Thus, some of your information is also available to other users in FightAthlete App, irrespective of whether it is accessed on the website or in the relevant mobile App. Our aim is that nobody is left alone with their training. Instead, users’ performance is appreciated and can become an incentive for new members.
If you do not want to make it possible to link your performance to yourself, you are free to refrain from providing any personal data on your profile or training sessions and linking your account to Facebook. Moreover, you should not save any training photos or enter any notes in this case. For this reason, we have ensured that each user can change their personal information which can be viewed by other users and each user is free to use their own name or a fictitious name in their FightAthlete App.
FightAthlete Personal Trainer
If you opted for FightAthlete Personal Trainer, you will receive suitable training every week, based on your successfully completed training. For this purpose, we analyse the completed training performance (type of training, time required for each set, total time required) using a complex algorithm and we evaluate this in relation to the training performance of other users, so that we can offer perfectly tailored training.
Evaluation of location data
Within the framework of our FightAthlete App, it is possible to map the runs. For this purpose, we need access to location data. These data help us to calculate the distances covered at the relevant time and thereby determine the end correctly for pre-defined distances or determine the distances covered.
To determine in which parts of the world most of the users are based, we evaluate your location data statistically. For this purpose, we draw on the positioning data saved on iOS devices under “Frequent locations”. These data are forwarded to us via the use of the App without any reference to your person being made. We only evaluate all positioning data statistically. You will find further information about the positioning function “Frequent locations” of iOS devices and the possibility of deactivating it here: http://support.apple.com/de-de/HT5594
We need these access options and information to ensure the technical functioning of our App and provision of the services offered within the App, in particular to be able to access your camera or your photos, to determine your running or to send you push messages to inform you about new followers or comments. During the installation procedure or before you use the App for the first time, we request permission to access individual functions and information. We only access these functions if you give us your approval. You can manually revoke the access rights in the settings for each operating system. You can find out how this works in the manufacturer instructions for your mobile OS. However, please note that you can use the App only to a limited extent or you cannot use it at all without the relevant approval.
Before you use the App for the first time, we will request the following rights for the purpose described below:
delivery of push messages
|taking photos for profile/feed
selection of photos for profile/feed
calculation of running distance, statistical evaluation
receipt of push messages
use of internet and downloading new contents
You can contact us by e-mail or by an online contact form. Obviously, we will use the personal data provided to us in this way only for the purpose for which you make them available to us when you contact us.
Obviously, you can revoke your declarations of consent for the future at any time. Please refer to the section mentioned at the end of this statement to find out how to do this.
You can subscribe to our newsletter, if you want to receive regular news updates or information from us about selected topics and products. We need your valid e-mail address for subscription. To ensure that you actually want to receive information from us, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. After the successful subscription, you receive a link by e-mail, which you can use to activate the newsletter service.
Obviously, you can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time and revoke your given consent for the future. To do this, please click the relevant button in the newsletter you received or refer to the contact data provided below.
Cookies and tracking pixels
Most browsers accept cookies automatically. If you want to prevent cookies from being saved, you can select the “Accept no cookies” option in your browser settings. To find out exactly how this works, you can consult the instructions of your browser manufacturer. You can delete the cookies, which have already been saved on your PC at any time. However, we would like to point out that our website service can only be used to a limited extent without cookies.
Moreover, every time our website is loaded, we record how often it is visited and clicked on by using tags on our website, so-called tracking pixels, likewise without any interference and intervention for your PC.
According to the agreement between Google and the Den-Haag-based authorised representative for data protection and freedom of information (Dutch DPA), Google Analytics can be used under certain conditions in compliance with data protection and without leading to any complaints. In particular, we would like to point out that Google Analytics on our website has been expanded by relevant IP masking function to ensure the anonymous collection of IP addresses. Please also pay attention to the following information about the application of Google Analytics:
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses the so-called “cookies”. The information about your use of this website generated by cookies is usually forwarded to and saved on a Google server in the USA. However, due to activating IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address is shortened beforehand by Google in member states of the European Union or other states which are parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address forwarded to a Google server in the USA, and shortened there. On behalf of the providers of this website, Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports about the website activities and supply other services related to the website use and internet use to the website provider.
The IP address transferred from your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data. You can prevent the cookies from being saved by the relevant settings of your browser software. However, we would like to point out that in this case it may not be possible to fully use all functions of this website. Moreover, you can prevent Google from collecting cookie-generated data about your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing these data, if you download and install the browser plug-in available at the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).
You will find more information at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout or at https://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/ (general information about Google Analytics and data protection). You can find more information here http://www.google.com/privacy/privacy-policy.html.
DoubleClick by Google
You can prevent Google from collecting the cookie-generated data about your use of the website and from processing these data, if you download and install the browser plug-in available in the section on DoubleClick deactivation extension: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/
Google Tag Manager
For the sake of transparency, we would like to point out that we use Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager itself does not collect any personal data. Tag Manager simplifies our integration and management of tags. Tags are small code components which are used for, among other things, measuring traffic and visitor behaviour, identifying the effects of online advertisement and social channels, setting up remarketing and organising target groups, as well as testing and optimising the websites. We only use Google Analytics, DoubleClick and HubSpot. If you have performed deactivation, Google Tag Manager will take this deactivation into account. You will find more information about Google Tag Manager at: https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/use-policy.html
To draw attention to our services, we place advertisements in Google AdWords. They are inserted according to search queries in Google. On the page with our contact forms, cookies are used to register how many users found us thanks to one of our advertisements. We can optimise our advertisements thanks to the anonymous statistics acquired in this way. Cookies are saved by Google when the advertisement is clicked on and can be prevented by the settings of your browser. In this case, your visit to our website is not included in the anonymous user statistics. You can find more information in Google website statistics.

Thus, Pinterest can receive information that you have visited this website with your IP address. When you click the “Pin it” button while you are logged in to your Pinterest user account on Pinterest, you can share the contents on this website in the Pinterest network.
