When you create an account, we ask you to provide your email address and name. You can choose a nickname as name instead of the full name if you wish.

We do not transfer any personal data (position, health data, activity information) from your watch to our server during the download process of the route data. Outside the download process which is clearly shown the watch does not transfer any data to our server or any other server.
