Privacy Policy


What is this Privacy Policy for?

This Privacy Policy relates to our ‘Services’ which include our mobile application (“App”), website (www.mywaffl.com), associated services, functions, content and applications. You should read this carefully in conjunction with our Terms and Conditions before you make use of the services or website from us, My WAFFL Ltd. This Privacy Policy governs the privacy of its users who choose to use our Services.

General

The concept of our Services, in specifically our App, for registered users relies to a great extent on the publication of information regarding individual users to other users by making them accessible via the WAFFL mobile application.

Personal information and e-mail address of a WAFFL App user will not be shared with any other user.

They may, however, be automatically added to the WAFFL mailing lists.  WAFFL may email you newsletters, announcements, surveys or other information. If you prefer not to receive any or all of these communications, you may opt out by following the directions provided within the electronic newsletters and announcements.

Types of personally identifiable information collected by WAFFL App

The App works by communicating with our servers to bring you the WAFFL services. Your personal data will therefore be held on our servers.

WAFFL collects different types of personally identifiable information from users upon registration and in connection with the usage of the WAFFL App. The personally identifiable information collected by WAFFL belongs to the following categories.

A) Profile information which users can freely enter, change and delete via Settings such as: first name and last name, location, gender.

B) Training information that will be stored when users save performances such as: workout times for strength and cardio workouts, exercise repetitions, etc.

C) Training information that will be stored when users save performances such as: meal days, calories, macronutrients, etc.

D) Well-being information that will be stored when users save performances such as: water consumption, sleep advice, etc.

F) Email addresses

Personal identifiable information shall be used i) to run the App ii) to offer new applications to the members iii) to improve such applications and adapt them to the users’ needs.

You accept that WAFFL or third parties assisting it with provision of the App services are permitted to process your personal data on servers outside of the EEA.

Use and sharing of personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information with third parties

By registering, the user explicitly agrees that WAFFL shall have the right to use all automatically collected personally identifiable information for purposes of the WAFFL App and to provide future services associated with the App. WAFFL does not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer users’ personally identifiable information (see section II above) to outside parties.

However trusted third parties do assist us in operating our App and conducting our business, and whilst doing so will keep your information confidential. WAFFL may also release users’ information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety.

WAFFL may also pass personal identifiable information to third parties if the user explicitly gives permission. Apple’s ‘HealthKit’ data will not be used for marketing/advertising purposes or shared with third parties with or without user consent.

WAFFL implements all reasonable measures to prevent unauthorised access by third parties to saved details.

However, WAFFL assumes no liability for the interception, alteration, or misuse of the information you provide to other users by other users.

The user explicitly consents that WAFFL may provide non-personally identifiable information to other parties for marketing, advertising or other uses.

Facebook integration

The App integrates different connections to the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. It is used to share activities on Facebook and to get Facebook information about WAFFL App users. An overview of Facebook integrations and social plugins can be found here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

When users enable the Facebook connection in their Settings, the Facebook integration establishes a connection between a user’s smartphone and the Facebook server. Thereby, WAFFL receives information about the user. This information will be treated as stated in section III.

When users share their performances on Facebook and when they invite friends via Facebook, the Facebook integration establishes a connection between a user’s smartphone and the Facebook server. Thereby, the user links information of his WAFFL account to his or her Facebook account. WAFFL does not receive any of this information.

This integration allows Facebook to correlate a user’s usage of the WAFFL application with the corresponding user’s Facebook account. WAFFL as the provider of the WAFFL App does not have any control of the future data usage by Facebook nor over those you share your data with. You can find more information on that issue in the privacy policy of Facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

Users must actively enable the Facebook connection in their Settings in order to be able to share performances on Facebook and invite friends via Facebook. If users do not want Facebook to gain information on their WAFFL App usage or if they don’t want WAFFL to gain information about them via Facebook, they shall leave the Facebook integration disabled as it is in the default settings. Once enabled, users can disable the Facebook connection again in their Settings at any time.

By activating the Facebook connection in his or her settings, the user explicitly consents to the information exchange described in this section.
