Walkingspree Privacy Policy and Notice

Updated: March 21, 2024

Walkingspree USA Ltd. and its affiliates (collectively, “Walkingspree,” “we,” “us,” or “our“) provide technology solutions to companies to control health care costs by getting their employees moving. We accomplish this through use of a multi-device platform that uses activity trackers to track and record physical activity and related information as submitted by and collected from users who register with, or otherwise gain access to, the Walkingspree platform as described herein (individually, “User” or “you,” and collectively, “Users“). At any time, Users may change and update profile information that they have submitted.

Walkingspree is committed to protecting the privacy of any personal information in our custody and control. We have developed this Privacy Policy and Notice (“Notice“) to explain how we collect, use, maintain, disclose, and otherwise process personal information, including information about you that is collected through our multi-device platform via the www.walkingspree.com website (“Website“) and the Walkingspree application or mobile platform (“App“). We will collect, use, maintain, disclose, and otherwise process your personal information only as stated in this Notice.

By viewing, accessing, using, or browsing with the Website or App, including registering as a User of our services, you expressly agree to abide by this Notice and our Terms of Service as a binding legal agreement between you and us, without limitation or qualification. Each time you visit the Website or App, or provide us with additional information, you accept the obligations set forth in this Notice and the Terms of Service as current at that time.

In addition to the terms and conditions of this Notice, your personal information maintained by Walkingspree may also be subject to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA“). HIPAA may contain additional provisions relating to the use and disclosure of your information that go beyond the terms of this Notice.

This Notice is incorporated by reference into our Terms of Service. When you access the Website or the App, you expressly acknowledge and agree that you have read this Notice and understand and agree with its contents.

Information We Collect

Walkingspree collects and stores a wide variety of information that you submit to Walkingspree or give to the Website or APP as described below.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Walkingspree keeps track of non-personally identifiable information (“NPII“) such as the User’s IP address, time of access, browser type, and files downloaded to aggregate data for the Website and App. IP addresses are not associated with other information about the User, but only indicate general visitor navigation patterns. The Website may have embedded tags that allow some third-party entities to collect NPII usage statistics.

Like many organizations, Walkingspree places a standard Internet tool, such as web beacon or cookie, to collect NPII and track the User’s use of the Website and App. This helps us understand traffic patterns on the Website and improve its service. If the User does not accept cookies on his or her device, all of the Walkingspree services might not work properly for the User.

For more information about cookies and guidance about how to refuse cookies, see the section below entitled “Use of Cookies and Similar Technologies.”

Personally Identifiable Information

Walkingspree collects personally identifiable information (“PII“) about you when you subscribe or sign up as a User of the Website or App. Once you decide to sign up for an account and sign into Walkingspree, you are not anonymous to us since we will have your name and other provided identifying information.

As a User, we collect and store information provided by you, at your option, to help you manage your overall wellness through the Website as well as to maximize the accuracy and enjoyment of your Activity Tracker. Examples of the information tracked include your daily steps, distance walked, specific events, other fitness activities, and completed daily tasks.

You could be inserted into a “Team” that is predefined by your employer. You could also be listed as a walking leader such as in “Top Walkers” category.

Use of Collected Information

Walkingspree may use the information you provide in a number of ways. We may segregate you into a certain section or Walking Group based on the collected information to better deliver a relevant and engaging solution for you. Walkingspree may also offer an automated or live custom coaching feature where the use of collected information is critical to the successful delivery of this new service.

At times, Walkingspree may share aggregated demographic information with our clients, business partners, and advertisers. This is not linked to any PII information that can identify you or any other individual.

When you join a Walking Group, you are electing to share your step data to the assigned Walking Group for use in reporting and for comparison purposes. Participating in a Walking Group is solely at your discretion, and you may elect to cancel your participation in any Walking Group at any time.

Your individual fitness and wellness information is used to provide the services available to you as a User to chart and record your activities. Aggregate information related to completed steps will be shared with your employer who sponsored your enrollment. Your individual step data is visible to other participants. Such aggregate information may be used to help us operate, analyze, and improve the Website and App on a continual basis, as well as, sending administrative messages and information, provide and conduct marketing and promotions, communicate with you about new products or services in development, or display relevant marketing to you.

We may also use or disclose your information to: (1) communicate directly with you; (2) verify your identity; or (3) respond as required by law, which we will determine in our reasonable judgment.
