Location Data

The Pebbls mobile app collects and uses your precise location data to provide and enhance the functionality of our journey tracking features and to create personalized maps. This location data is linked to your user account and is collected in real-time when you have enabled journey tracking in the app. When you have journey tracking enabled your precise location is collected even when the app is in the background or closed. To enable this core functionality you must set the location permissions to “Always Allow” (iOS) or “Allow all the time” (Android).

By using the app, you agree to allow us to collect and use your location data as described above. If you do not want us to collect or use your location data, you can disable location services for the app in your device settings. However, please note that disabling location services will prevent the app from functioning as intended.

Please be aware that when you use our Service, in case of an error in the app, we collect data and information (through third-party products) on your phone called Log Data. This Log Data may include information such as your device Internet Protocol (β€œIP”) address, device name, operating system version, the configuration of the app when utilizing our Service, the time and date of your use of the Service, and other statistics.

Service Providers

We may employ third-party companies and individuals due to the following reasons:

  • To facilitate our Service;
  • To provide the Service on our behalf;
  • To perform Service-related services; or
  • To assist us in analyzing how our Service is used.

Please be informed that these third parties have access to your Personal Information. The reason is to perform the tasks assigned to them on our behalf. However, they are obligated not to disclose or use the information for any other purpose.

Sharing Data with Strava

If you choose to upload your journey legs to your Strava account, we will share certain information with Strava to facilitate this upload. The information we share may include your location data, the duration and distance of your journey legs, and your leg title and description. Please note that when you add your leg to Strava your entire leg GPS track will be uploaded – any start and end location masking will be ignored.

Strava has its own privacy practices and you should review those in Strava’s Privacy Policy. We do not control what data Strava collects, how they use that data, or what they do with it.

Your data is only shared with Strava when you tap the “Add to Strava” button in the Pebbls tracking app. If you do not want us to share your data with Strava, do not link your Pebbls and Strava accounts. If you have already linked your accounts and want to stop sharing data, you can unlink your accounts in your Strava account settings.
