Outwalk Privacy Policy

Effective date: March 30th, 2017

It is a pleasure to see that you are using our products. Protecting your privacy and personal data while using Outwalk and our other products is very important to us. Therefore, we adhere strictly to the rules of data protection laws. We collect personal data only insofar as necessary for the use of our services. The following explanations help you understand how we ensure this protection and which data is collected and for what purpose.

Types of Data collected

Among the types of Personal Data that Outwalk collects, by itself or through third-parties, there are: General Activity Data, Movement Activity, Cookies and Usage Data.

Other Personal Data collected may be described in other sections of this privacy policy or by dedicated explanation text contextually with the Data collection.

The Personal Data may be freely provided by the User, or collected automatically when using Outwalk.

Any use of Cookies - or of other tracking tools - by Outwalk or by the owners of third-party services used by Outwalk, unless stated otherwise, serves to identify Users and remember their preferences, for the sole purpose of providing the service required by the User.

Failure to provide certain Personal Data may make it impossible for Outwalk to provide its services.

Use of Outwalk and sharing personal data

When using the app, you have the option of transmitting health and movement data (namely Steps, Walking + Running Distance) in our app, which are stored on your mobile device. You can undo this step by turning off the respective approvals in the „Apple Health” app on your mobile device. This information will be broadcast to one of our servers and made visible to your Outwalk friends. If you reach Top 25 of the Global or Nearby Rankings for the following periods „Today”, „This Week”, „This Month”, and „This Year”, your steps (excluding the Walking + Running Distance) will be visible to all other Outwalk users. However, if you have activated „Incognito Mode” throughout the Settings of the app, your personal data is visible only to your friends.

Your friends have access to your information, including your profile, username, avatar photo, and friends.

We also collect information that you do not actively provide us with. We store data in an anonymous form that include the behaviour of users when using our app. These include operating life, device and functions used. These analyses are available to us in anonymous form without reference to a specific user and only serve statistical purposes.

A transfer of your data beyond the cases mentioned above will not take place. Also, we will not use your data for advertising purposes or let them be used by third-parties.

Our app can only be purchased through the Apple App Store. Note that data will be collected and processed by the provider.

Your personal information is not used by MacroPinch Ltd. for marketing and advertising or transferred to third-parties.

Motion and HealthKit Data

Outwalk accesses data from the Hardware Motion Sensor and Apple Health App in a read-only manner once you explicitly allow it (using the system-level iOS permissions mechanism).

You can choose to connect with Motion and HealthKit and share your Motion and HealthKit information with MacroPinch Ltd. The data that Outwalk reads from Motion and Apple Health is limited to Steps and Walking + Running Distance. You can restrict Outwalk’s access to any of these data values from within the Settings App or Apple Health App. We will only use the Personal Data you provide in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy and for the purposes of tracking your Walking and Running Activity, including „Global”, „Nearby”, and „Friends” Ranking based on steps.

The unique information you choose to send from Motion and HealthKit is not used by MacroPinch Ltd. for marketing and advertising or transferred to third-parties.

Location Services

If you elect to use location-based features via Nearby Ranking, then the physical location of your device will be collected. You are able to disallow our use of certain location data through your device or browser settings by disabling „Location Services”.
