To make sure we don't miss any tracking points, we need to access background positioning. The backgrounding of an app occurs for example when you push the home button of your device, open another app, or close the screen and put the device in your pocket to perform your sports activity. In this type of scenarios, as well as in some situations of aggressive battery management, background positioning allows us to continue tracking your activity efficiently and continuously, without losing data.
In no case do we use background positioning for purposes other than the main purpose of the App itself.
Android 10+ users must also allow background location access manually (ALLOW ALWAYS)
You can also enable/disable this option before and after tracking activity
We are committed to protecting your privacy and complying with applicable data protection and privacy laws.
For the features of the service, we store the GPS data you send us. These are associated with your account or name if you choice this, and are shown information such as dates and times when you were recording the track. Please consider this before uploading your GPS tracks.
