Your privacy is an important factor that Hotlap (collectively referred to as the “Company”) consider in the development of our mobile application. As such, we are committed to being transparent and open.

Hotlap also collects information about how you use the services. There are several opportunities for you to share information about yourself and your activities with Hotlap, including your name, email address, equipment usage, activities, routes (including date, time and geo-location information as well as your speed and pace), profile photo and other multimedia.

If you elect to use location-based features via the services, then the physical location of your device will be collected. Hotlap may also collect and upload from your device data such as speed and GPS coordinates. You are able to disallow our use of certain location data through your device or browser settings by disabling “Location Services”.

By voluntarily providing us with Personal Data, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data to the Company, you acknowledge and agree that such Personal Data may be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of the Company and the authorized third parties referred to herein located in the United States.

Furthermore, we partner with third parties to provide certain support services to our users. These third parties are responsible for their own policies and procedures to protect your information. The Company is not responsible for the protection or use of information that users provide directly to any third party in conjunction with the use of Company’s services. This privacy policy only applies to information provided directly to or obtained directly by Company during your use of our services.

We may also collect: (i) Non-Identifiable Data. When you interact with the Company through the Services, we receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. The Company may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by the Company, affiliates, agents or service providers. The Services may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our App, the number of visitors to each page of our App, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process. (ii) Aggregated Personal Data. In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, the Company often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and the Company may share this aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. The Company may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.

III. Use of Cache Data

Our App, like most browsers and applications are initially set up to accept “Cache Data.” Cache is a component of your mobile device that transparently stores data for record-keeping purposes. Cache data does not identify users, but does identify your mobile device. If you prefer, you can program your mobile device so that it does not store this information while utilizing the App. Please note that certain App features may only be available through the collection of Cache Data. We may use such data to assist in data collection and to track App usage and trends to help us better serve you. We also permit third parties who have entered into confidentiality agreements to access such data to help us monitor use of the App for fraud or any other activity that does not comply with applicable laws.

Some of our business partners (e.g., analytical tracking software providers) use cookies and tracking technologies on the App. We have no access to or control over these cookies or tracking technologies. This Privacy Policy only covers the use of cookies and cache data on the App by the Company. It does not cover the use of cookies or tracking technologies by any such business partner.
