By using the Peakers Services, you are agreeing to the collection and use of your information as described in this Policy. If you do not agree to this Policy, do not use the Peakers Services.
1. Information we will collect from you:
We will collect both personal and non-personal information from you. “Personal Information” is information that, either alone or in combination with other information collected, identifies an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a personal profile, an email address or other contact information. When we combine other information (“Non-Personal Information”) with Personal Information, we treat the combined information as Personal Information. Peakers will collect only as much Personal Information as Peakers needs for the purposes specified (a) in this Policy, (b) at the time of collection of the Personal Information, or (c) in future agreements to which you consent. You are solely responsible for the Personal and Non-Personal Information you provide to us and you assume all risks associated with use of your Information including any reliance on its accuracy or completeness.
1.1. Your contact information
When you create a Peakers account, we will ask you to provide Personal Information, including your email address, mobile number, and name. Your Peakers account will be password-protected. You will use your email address and your password to login to your account to access the Peakers Services. When you interact with our customer support representatives via email, telephone, through the Peakers Services or in person, we may collect Personal Information, such as your name, mailing address, phone number, email address and contact preferences.
1.2. Your activities
We will receive information regarding the type of activities you engage in (for example, runs, walks, swims, etc.) and data derived from those activities (e.g. time spent on the activity, calories burned, heart rate, etc.). We will receive this information and data from your device, third party APIs, and when you use and interact with the Peakers Services.
1.3. Your personal health information
Subject to your explicit consent, we may collect certain personal health information such as your height, weight, or sleeping cycles. This information is used for activities including, but not limited to, displaying your biometrics based on these inputs and for purposes such as adapting your training schedule, and providing you with feedback, nutritional information, and mindset related feedback.
1.4. Your demographic information
Peakers may collect and process demographic information such as information about your gender, age, country, and location. To the extent that Peakers combines any Non-Personal demographic information with Personal Information that Peakers collects directly from you through the Peakers Services, Peakers will treat the combined data as Personal Information under this Policy.
1.5. Your payment information
If you choose to purchase paid Services, we will collect your credit or debit card information through a third-party processor, Stripe. For more on the storage and security of your payment information, see Section 3.3 below.

Consistent with applicable laws we may use your information:
- to process your account registration;
- to provide you with access to your personal account;
- to provide you with customer and product support.
The legal basis for the processing above is the performance of a contract between you and us and/or taking steps, at your request, to enter into such a contract.
We may also use your information:
- to contact you to inform you of new services features, news, or articles on issues Peakers thinks will be of interest to you;

3. How we’ll store your information
When you provide information to Peakers or sync your device to Peakers, your Personal Information and activity data on Peakers, except for credit and debit card information, will be collected, encrypted, and stored on servers in the United States. If you reside in a country outside the United States, please note that the data protection and privacy laws of the United States may not be as comprehensive as the laws in your country. Transfers to the United States will be therefore subject to your explicit consent.
We will retain your Personal Information as long as we determine is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which your Personal Information has been collected under this Policy, unless a longer retention period is required by law.
3.1. How we’ll keep your information secure
We will take reasonable security measures applying General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) standards to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of your information. This may include undertaking internal reviews of our data collection, storage, processing practices and security measures, including encryption and physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to the systems where we store your information. In addition, we will restrict access to your information to our employees, contractors, and agents who need to know certain information in order to process it on our behalf. These individuals and entities are bound by strict confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
3.2. What if there’s a breach?
If we discover your information is compromised as a result of a security breach, we will promptly notify you that your information may have been compromised. We will send this notice to you by email, by posting a notice on our website, or as otherwise required by applicable law.
3.3. Storing payment information
When you purchase Services, your Personal Information and credit card or debit card information is processed, stored, and kept secure by Stripe, a third-party credit card processing service. Your credit card information will be stored by Stripe in their restricted-access database. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or electronic storage is 100% secure, and we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We assume no responsibility or liability for damages resulting from Stripe’s processing, storage, or other use of your credit or debit card information or any Personal Information.
4. When we can disclose your information
Except for the purposes listed below, Peakers will not transfer or sell your Personal Information data to any third party without providing you prior notice and obtaining your consent.
4.1. For the same purposes we use your information for
Personal Information may be transferred in a de-identified manner (anonymized) to third parties who act for Peakers to achieve the purposes listed under Section 2 above, or for other purposes you consent to.
For example, we may give a third party access to your Personal Information in order to support Peakers’ information technology or to handle mailings on Peakers’ behalf. If Peakers transfers your Personal Information to an outside agent or organization for such purpose, Peakers will take reasonable measures to protect your privacy, ensure the safety and security of your Personal Information, and ensure that the de-identified Personal Information transferred to third party is no longer personally identifiable and may not later be reasonably associated with, linked to, or used to identify you.
4.2. To comply with the law
Subject to applicable laws in your jurisdiction, we may also disclose Personal Information about you to others as we believe to be necessary: (a) to comply with laws or regulation, whether inside or outside your country of residence; (b) to comply with legal process; or (c) to respond to requests from public authorities and law enforcement officials, whether inside or outside your country of residence.

4.4. If Peakers is sold
We may also transfer Personal Information to an affiliate, a subsidiary or a third party in the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of Peakers’s business.
5. How you can access, update, or delete your information
You may request access to your Personal Information and request that erroneous or inaccurate Personal Information be updated by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also request that (a) your Personal Information and Peakers account be deleted, (b) the processing of your Personal Information is limited to certain purposes and (c) your Personal Information is provided to you in a structured format and, in some circumstances, transferred to another data controller. If you consider that our processing of your Personal Information infringes data protection laws, you also have the legal right to complain to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority responsible for data protection. To the extent that legal basis for the processing of your Personal Information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Peakers will respond to your requests within a reasonable amount of time in accordance with applicable law. For your protection, we will only implement requests with respect to the Personal Information that is associated with the particular email address that you use to send us your request, and we may need to verify your identity before implementing your request. If necessary and permitted by applicable laws, we will retain certain Personal Information beyond your deletion request for recordkeeping purposes, such as retaining records relating to accounting purposes.
6. Children’s privacy
