This Privacy Policy governs the terms for data collection and usage by M/s Parabolic River through its Apps and Website. The Privacy Policy should be read together with the ‘Terms and Conditions’ for the Apps and Website (hereinafter together referred to as “Usage Policy”) available at https://www.parabolicriver.com/help/termsandconditions/. For the purpose of this document, any capitalised words used in this document have the same meaning as specified in the Terms and Conditions. Additional terms are defined through the use of parenthesis within the document.

Coverage

  1. The Privacy Policy will be binding on all persons (natural or legal) who Use or download any of the Apps or access the Website from any jurisdiction where they are legally available for access, Use or download across the world.
  2. This Privacy Policy will be the document based on which Your consent has been taken for Use and transfer of information (personal or anonymous) depending on the country where You Use, download or purchase any of the Apps or access the Website.

Data Collection and Usage by Parabolic River Through the App(s)

  1. In case, you are located in the EEA or California, USA, We do not collect any personally identifiable information of any kind through the App(s). If You Use a free version of any of the App(s) within the EEA, We will serve You non-personalised ads based on a mobile identifier after acquiring Your consent when you Use the App(s). For California, USA, Users: We do not sell Your personal information to any party and Google acts as our sole ‘service provider’ in terms of the definition provided under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (‘CCPA’) and serves non-personalised ads. You may visit https://support.google.com/admob/answer/7676680?hl=en to learn more about how Google handles non-personalised ads.
  2. In case, you are located outside the EEA or California, USA, we use Google Mobile Ads SDK to serve you personalised ads on the App(s). As the background technology provider, Google may collect and process user information. You may visit ‘How Google uses information from sites or apps that use our services’ at https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites and the ‘Google Privacy Policy’ at https://policies.google.com/privacy/update?hl=en&gl=gb to understand how Google collects and processes user information.
  3. In case, you are located in the EEA or California, USA, We are unable to honour any request for deletion, correction or export of any personal data collected through the Apps for the purpose of serving Ads, as We have not collected any such information in the first place. We do not provide any services for deletion, correction or export of any data collected through the Apps for the purpose of serving Ads, for Users outside the EEA or California, USA.
  4. As a part of their features, the Apps may allow you to manually connect them with a Heart Rate Monitor (‘HRM’) through your Cell Phone to display your heart rate on screen while working out, and to write and announce your heart rate information as a part of the workout summary at the end of the workout and also while working out. Permission to use the HRM for raw heart rate data collection and data transfer has to be provided separately (by pairing a device). Heart Rate data read and displayed by the Apps is never kept in the Apps beyond the end of the workout and it is deleted after providing the User with a workout summary at the end of a workout.
  5. The Apps may be connected for Use with special fitness and well-being software platforms on Your Cell Phone identified as ‘Google Fit’ (https://www.google.com/fit/) and ‘Apple Health’ (https://www.apple.com/in/ios/health/) (hereinafter together called ‘Fitness Platforms’). Such a connection must be made by the User manually after giving the requisite consent(s) to read and write information to these Fitness Platforms.
  6. When connected to Google Fit with requisite consent by the User, the App reads User height (if available) and weight (if available) and writes back time spent working out, heart rate information (if available) and approximate calories burned (if calculable). For approximate calories burned to be calculated the App requires the User height (read from Google Fit), weight (read from Google Fit) and year of birth. User height and weight are never stored in the App and are always read from Google Fit each time they are needed to use the latest available accurate information. Information calculated on the basis of data read from Google Fit is never stored in the App beyond the duration of an ongoing workout and is provided to the User as a summary and written to the Google Fit platform and immediately deleted from the App itself at the end of a workout. Users may turn Off the Google Fit setting in the App at any time to completely disconnect from the platform; connecting again requires the User to provide consent again.
  7. Users may enter their year of birth directly in the App. This is stored in the App safely and is deleted immediately when the Fitness Platform is turned Off in the App settings.
  8. The information collected by these Fitness Platforms may include personally identifiable information including date of birth, height, weight, sex, age, heart rate, workouts undertaken, energy expended, distance covered and locations visited. When you permit Us to connect with these Fitness Platforms, We use the Apple HealthKit API and Google Fit SDK on Your Cell Phone to access Your data. We may use the data obtained from them for certain calculations based on Your request, such as to display the number of calories burnt, but We never store this information on Our Apps or transmit this information to Our own servers.
  9. Any information received by Us through any of the Fitness Platforms is directly transferred from the Fitness Platforms and any results that you may want to store are transferred back to the Fitness Platforms. We do not store or Use the information in any manner. Once the information is transmitted onwards to the Fitness Platforms, it does not remain in Our control and its usage and processing would be governed solely by the policies of the Fitness Platforms. The Fitness Platforms have to be manually connected to the Apps by the User by providing consent to connect and receive requisite notifications. Consequently, We are also unable to comply with any request for deletion of the information or prevent its onward transmission and processing by the Fitness Platforms.
