We may process and use your personal data for marketing. Marketing purposes may include using your personal data for personalized marketing or for research purposes in accordance with applicable laws, for example, to conduct market research or to inform you about our services and promotions via our own- or third-party services. In addition, some of our service platform’s services may be used to promote products and services of other companies. However, Coach4Pro does not disclose your personal data to such companies for their marketing purposes without your prior consent.

We may disclose your personal data to third parties solely as stated below in this Policy, or as obligated by mandatory law.

4.1 Opting-out from e-mail/SMS based marketing.  You may opt-out from brand marketing e-mails by following the guidance in those e-mails (typically provided via “unsubscribe” link) or contacting the company via the contact points given on the website. If you opt-out, we may still send you non-marketing e-mails, such as service notifications or other information or if you are a business customer, we may send business related information. You may also opt-out from any SMS based direct marketing by contacting Coach4Pro via the website or via SMS as may be applicable.

Such parties are not permitted to use your personal data for any other purposes than for what your personal data was collected for, and we require them to act consistently with applicable laws and this Policy as well as to use appropriate security measures to protect your personal data. We may also transfer your personal data in a non-identifiable format, including exercise related data like heart rate data, biometrical data, or other health related data, to a service partner, if you use such services where a third-party company needs to process such data for the provision of the respective service or where you separately agree that a third-party company may process your data in connection with the service platform of Coach4Pro.

4.2 International transfers Our services may be provided using resources and servers located in various countries around the world. Therefore, your personal data may be transferred outside the country where you use our services, including to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA), where the level of data protection may not be deemed adequate by the European Commission. In such cases we take steps to ensure that adequate protection for your personal data is provided as required by applicable laws. For international transfers of your personal data, we generally rely on agreements that are based on the Standard Contractual Clauses (“SCCs”) of the European Commission. You may find the SCCs here. http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/international-transfers/transfer/index_en.htm. If you wish to know more about international transfers of your personal data, you may contact us via the contact details given below.

4.4 Mergers and Acquisitions If we decide to sell, buy, merge, or otherwise reorganize our businesses in certain countries, this may involve us disclosing personal data to prospective or actual purchasers and their advisers, or receiving personal data from sellers and their advisers, for the purposes of such transactions.

 

5. DATA CONCERNING MINORS

Coach4Pro does not seek to collect any information from or engage in any transactions with persons under the legal age in their respective country.  Our databases may nevertheless contain personal data of children since it is not always possible to determine precisely the age of the user. We reserve the right to block the service platform from any person who is or whom we reasonably suspect of being a minor. Coach4Pro’s policy is to request that minors do not make purchases or engage in other legal acts on our products and services inside the service platform without the consent of a parent or legal guardian, unless otherwise permitted by applicable law. If you are a minor but have your legal guardian’s consent, you must be able to prove that such consent exists upon request.

 

6. DATA QUALITY AND RETENTION

We take reasonable steps to keep the personal data we possess accurate and up-to-date and to delete out of date or otherwise incorrect or unnecessary personal data. Our service platform may allow you to manage your profile and the information in such profile. We encourage you to access your personal data via your profile from time to time to ensure that it is correct and up-to-date. Please remember that for such electronic services where you may manage your profile, it is your responsibility to provide us with correct details as well as to update the personal data you have provided us in case of any changes. We store your personal data only for a period necessary for the purpose in question or as long as required by applicable laws.

 

7. DATA SECURITY

Coach4Pro implements appropriate technical and organizational security measures to prevent and minimize risks associated with providing and processing personal data. Such security measures include, where appropriate, the use of firewalls, secure server facilities, encryption, implementing proper access rights management systems and processes, careful selection and sufficient training of processors and other necessary measures to provide appropriate protection for your personal data against unauthorized use or disclosure. Where appropriate, we may also take back-up copies and use other such means to prevent accidental damage or destruction of your personal data. If a particular part of the Coach4Pro website supports online transactions, we will use an industry standard security measure, such as the one available through “Secure Sockets Layer” (“SSL”), to protect the confidentiality and security of online transactions.

 

8. USE OF COOKIES AND WEB BEACONSFrom time to time when you visit the Coach4Pro website, information may be placed on your computer to allow us to recognize your computer in the form of a text file known as a “cookie”. Our use of cookies is intended to provide benefits to you, such as eliminating the need for you to enter your password frequently during a session or the need to re-enter items you place in a shopping cart if you do not finish a transaction in a single visit. Cookies are also used for website traffic analysis and profiling. Coach4Pro website may also use other kinds of local storage technologies, such as Local Shared Objects (also referred to as “Flash cookies”) and HTML5 local storage. These technologies are similar to the cookies discussed above in that they are stored on your device and can be used to store certain information about your activities and preferences. However, these technologies may make use of different parts of your device from standard cookies, and so you might not be able to control them using standard browser tools and settings. You may prevent Flash cookies from being stored by following the instructions provided by Adobe at http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/disable-local-shared-objects-flash.html. Coach4Pro may use so called web beacons (or “pixel tags”) in connection with some websites. However, we do not use them to identify individual users personally. Web beacons are typically graphic images that are placed on a website and they are used to count visitors to a website and/or to access certain cookies. This information is used to improve our services. Web beacons do not typically collect any other information than what your browser provides us with as a standard part of any internet communication. If you turn off cookies, the web beacon will no longer be able to track your specific activity. The web beacon may, however, continue to collect information of visits from your IP-address, but such information will no longer be personally identifiable. If you wish to disable cookies, or want to be notified before they are placed, you may do this in your browser settings. However, we may not be able to provide certain services, or you may not be able to view certain parts of this site if you have disabled cookies. Some of our business partners whose content is linked to our website may also use cookies or web beacons. However, we have no access to or control over these cookies. You acknowledge and agree to the storage of cookies, other local storage technologies, beacons and other information on your devices and to the access of such cookies, local storage technologies, beacons and information by us and by the third parties mentioned above.

9. YOUR RIGHTSYou have the right to request information and access to the personal data we have collected from and of you. You also have the right to request that we replenish, rectify, anonymize or delete any incomplete, incorrect, unnecessary or outdated personal data we hold on you. However, we cannot delete such personal data that is necessary for compliance with binding legal obligations or if the personal data must be retained according to applicable laws. You have the right to request and receive the personal data we have collected on you in a commonly used and machine-readable form. In case you consider your personal data collected by us to be inaccurate, you do not wish your personal data to be deleted where the processing of your personal data has been deemed unlawful or the personal data is no longer necessary, or you have objected to the processing and the existence of legitimate grounds for processing is still under consideration, you may request restriction of processing of your personal data. You may also at any time object to your personal data being processed for direct marketing purposes, sending promotional materials, profiling, or for the performance of market research. Further, where your personal data is processed based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent for such processing at any time. In case you wish to make use of your rights mentioned above, you may, as appropriate and in accordance with applicable laws, exercise such rights by contacting us through the contact points referred in the marketing materials or below in this Policy. In some cases, especially if you wish us to delete or cease the processing of your personal data, this may also mean that we may not be able to continue to provide the services to you. We encourage you to use available profile management tools for the above purposes as such tools often provide you with direct access to your personal and other data and allow you to effectively manage our data. Please note that Coach4Pro may need to identify you and to ask for additional information in order to be able to fulfil your requests above. Please also note that applicable laws may contain restrictions and other provisions that relate to your above rights.
