The protection of your data is very important to us
Arcletic’s mission is to help people perform their personal best whenever they need it. The purpose of the business is to use your data for your goals and purposes. This implies that you are the master of your data and that under no circumstances we are trading in your data. The protection of your data was to us and is always a big concern.
In the following, we’ll explain how we use your information to give you and the community the best possible offer.
We collect information about you when you create an account, use the platform, participate in a group, visit our website or communicate with us.
What personal information about you do we collect?
The information we learn from you helps us personalize and constantly improve your experience at Arcletic. These are the types of information we collect:
Information provided by you: We store the information you enter using our Website or App or send us in any other way, such as your name, birthday, e-mail and address. This also includes details of any transactions you carry out through the App or when you give us feedback. If you sign in to Janu using your Facebook login, you authorize us to access certain Facebook account information, such as your public Facebook profile (consistent with your privacy settings in Facebook), your email address, likes, gender, birthday, events, photos and friend list (only Facebook friends who also use Janu will be saved to recommend them as friend).
You choose the information you provide. In some cases you might not be able to take advantage of every single feature contained in the App if you don´t provide certain information. We use the information you give us to respond to your requests, provide a more personalized service, improve our App and communicate with you.
Please note: Occasionally, information you give when entering a group will indicate your beliefs, your political views, your state of health; or your sexual identity. These and other sensitive personal data are under special protection. Posting personal information or sensitive personal information about yourself or anyone else violates our community guidlines.
Location Information: As the App is a location-enabled service, you are sending us location information. This information may reveal your actual location, such as GPS data, whenever the App is turned on or – depending on your settings – whenever your mobile device is turned on. This is necessary for providing you with a wide array of services based on the approximate location of the device, for example about group recommendations near you. The information about the approximate location of your wireless device will be used or shared only with prior notice and your consent. The form of consent will be suited to the type of location based service you utilize.
Automatic Information: When you interact with us we receive and store certain types of information about your use of the App and the services we offer. We may use “cookies” which provide us with specific information when you use the app / website.
E-Mail-Communications: We will never send you any e-mails, unless they reply to your enquiries or if you have registered for one of our newsletters or agreed to receive our e-mails. Our newsletters contain information about our services, offers, promotions and events as well as relevant information from our affiliates and partners. To be able to make the e-mails we send to you more helpful and interesting, we often get confirmation messages when you open our e-mails if your system supports this. You will always be able to choose not to receive our e-mails, either at the time of completing a form or by following the unsubscribe instructions in each e-mail that we send out. If you send unencrypted e-mails to us, please be aware that in Internet transmission these are not protected against unauthorized third parties reading or manipulating them.
How secure is the information we store about You?
All personal information that you submit via the App or Website is sent to and stored on secure servers located in the European Union.
Do we share the personal information we receive?
Information about you is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling, renting, trading, or otherwise sharing your personal information with third parties for their promotional use without your permission. We share your information only as described below.
Other companies and individuals: We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. For this purpose, the data is anonymized.
Exceptions are the sending of newsletters (e-mail address and name) and the processing of credit card payments and customer service. These have access to personal information as needed to perform its task but can not use it for any other purpose. We select established partners who deal responsibly with this data.
Protection of our App and others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our terms and conditions and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of our App and Website, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Where requested to do so, we may co-operate with any court, tribunal, regulatory body, police authority or other similar authority in any investigations or proceedings concerning you or your use of the App. This may include disclosing information about communications transmitted via the App to the authorities where required.
Encryption: We take steps to protect the personal information you provide to us. Whilst we take measures to safeguard the personal information that you provide to us and provide an encrypted transmission standard (https), no transmission over the Internet can ever be 100% guaranteed secure. Consequently, please note that we cannot guarantee the security of any personal information that you transfer to us over the internet, e.g. when using the web-based App.
Business transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or transfer certain of our assets. In such transactions, user information, including personal information, generally is one of the transferred business assets, and by submitting your personal information in the App or Website you agree that your data may be transferred to such parties in these circumstances. Your personal data, of course, always remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing privacy notice (unless you consent otherwise).
With your consent: With your consent, we might disclose your personal information to third parties, e.g. in order to provide you with products and services in general as well as with products and services near to your location if you have requested so.
We offer the opportunity to sign up for our service with Facebook Connect. An additional registration is therefore not possible. To register, you will be redirected to the Facebook page, where you can log in with your usage data. This links their Facebook profile and our service. By linking we will automatically receive from Facebook Inc. the following information will be transmitted to us: your public Facebook, your e-mail address, likes, gender, birthday, events, photos, friends list.
We use your name, e-mail address and date of birth to identify you, which is mandatory for the contract. The Likes, Gender, Events, Photos and Friends List are used to create your Janu profile and show you interesting activities and people.
