Collected data and purpose

Personal data

For the app

During registration user is asked for a minimum set of data: a username, e-mail address and password. The password is securely stored in the database. The e-mail address is not visible to other users and is only used to reach out to the user for example with a password recovery. The username is visible to other users and can be freely chosen.

For the shop

When a order is placed on the shop some name and address data will be asked in order to be able to process the order. We won’t story any payment related data and also we won’t create accounts. If you want to re-order you will have to fill in your details again. Payments are handled by our partner Stripe and the shop uses the official Stripe plugin for the payment handling. Your address is also temporarily shared with Sendcloud which is our shipping partner to create shipping labels, provide Track and Tracing on the shipments, and to generate relevant customs documentation.

OTHER data regarding the usage of the app

During recording of a kite boarding session there is data recorded and shared.

  • Raw accelerometer & Gyroscope data. This is stored on your device and not shared with any online service
  • Live data. Only during recording a session the location of the kite board will be shared and also details about your current session (latest jumps, speed). As soon as the user stops recording live data will no longer be shared.
    • User can disable location sharing within the settings. Once disabled the location will no longer be tracked and shared. The app will still record jumps but any GPS related functions of the app will no longer be available.

After recording a session the User can review gathered data (jumps and track) before deciding to save it. When data is saved it becomes available for other users to view as a Session. When the session is saved only the aggregated data will be stored in the Surfr. database. This means: the jumps without the underlying accelerometer and gyroscope details.

uploaded data in the app

Any data that is uploaded to the app by the user will be stored and shared with other users as well. This concerns (but not limited to): commenting on sessions, liking of sessions, uploaded Avatars and Session images. User is always in control about the data that is put in through the app and is not required to put in any of this data for the app to function properly.
