Privacy

MyGearGarage.com protects your personal data and privacy. In this privacy statement, we tell you which personal data we collect and in what way we store and use it. This privacy statement applies to our website at www.mygeargarage.com and mgg.ai (MGG). If you are under 16 years of age you need prior permission of your parents or legal guardians to use the website.

WHY WE PROCESS PERSONAL DATA TO PROVIDE OUR SERVICE

In order to start using MGG, you need to sign up and create an account. In this step you provide us with information such as your name, username and email address. We use this personal data (account data) so that you can log in to MGG, to personalize the service and so that we know how to address you when we contact you. If you sign up via Google, we will receive information from your profile to create an MGG account. If you cancel during any way of signing up, we cannot start providing you with the MGG service and will not save the data you entered.

When you connect a third party provider, like Strava, you allow us to retrieve and store information from their service on your behalf including your profile information on the third party service in order to fill and update your MGG profile. You also allow us to process activity data from those third parties.

We receive your activity data such as your tracked route, distance, and duration and other information you add to the activity to track gear, workouts and challenges.

We may also use anonymous aggregated data to create additional features within our service. For instance, aggregated activity data can be used to generate usage reports

.

Note that when you use MGG via a third party tracker like Strava the activity data can include your heart rate, we are not able to delete this info as it is often embedded in the received activity data.

TO IMPROVE AND PROTECT OUR SERVICE

We process data on how you use our service such as the features you use, the actions you take and the time, frequency and duration of your usage. We also store non-personal data, such as: the type of your browser, the type of your computer and technical information on how you are reaching our website or app. This helps us to improve our service and to quickly detect crashes and bugs so that we can fix them.

TO CONTACT YOU

We use your information to communicate with you about our service (e.g.: when you’ve forgotten your password, upcoming workouts, gear milestone notifications, etc.), to help you use our service and to update you about our service and share other information we think you like. We also use your information to respond to you when you contact us. You can manage your contact settings on your profile.

WHAT DATA DO WE SHARE?

We do not share or sell any of your information directly with other companies for marketing purposes. We do share Personal Information with vendors (data-processors) who are performing services for MGG, such as the servers for our email communications who are provided access to user's email address for purposes of sending emails from us.

We also utilize external services to help us improve the MGG Website and service. For example, we currently use Google Analytics (traffic analysis). These parties may also use cookies and tracking technologies. Feel free to check out their own Privacy Policies to find out more about how they work.

PRIVACY ZONE

Strava allows you to create a ‘privacy zone’, which will hide your exact location within this zone. Please note that not all third party applications accurately share this information with us, but rather give us the unfiltered data. If you see your route within your privacy zone you must contact your third party service provider to stop sharing locations within your privacy zone.

PUBLIC LINK

Please note that the Public URL of your workouts leads to our Website. This link is publicly accessible.

ACCOUNT & ACTIVITY INFORMATION

Your basic account information (user name and profile picture) are visible to other MGG users. For instance, if you participate in a challenge, or RSVP to a group workout.

HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

DATA PROTECTION

We are doing everything possible to protect your personal data from loss, destruction, usage, alterations or distribution by unauthorized persons.
