Information Collection: Categories of Data and Sources
We collect personal information from you directly, when you use the Offering, from our Brand Partners, and from third parties. This section describes the categories of personal information we collect about you and the sources of that information.
Registration and Payment Information. When you make a purchase on our Sites or through our Service, sign up for an Account, or sign up to receive notifications or updates, we collect personal information about you including, among other things, your name, email address, telephone number, and/or physical address. We use a third-party service certified to be in compliance with Payment Card Industry security standards to securely receive, process, and store credit card or other payment information. To keep your financial data secure, we do not store full credit card information on our servers.
Profile Information. If you choose to link your Account with your account with any of our Brand Partners (each, a "Brand Partner Account"), including as may be required to validate your eligibility for access to the Service as a benefit of your subscription to a Brand Partner’s services, we may receive and automatically populate certain profile information fields in your Account, such as your gender, height, weight, age, date of birth, unique identification number with such Brand Partner, in-person club or studio preferences, in-person club or studio visits, in-person and digital workout activity, purchases, and information about your past communications with such Brand Partner. We use this information to personalize your experience on the Service and the Sites, to provide you with the best member experience across our Brand Partners, address any customer service issues you experience, and to create a comprehensive fitness experience that integrates your online, in-studio, and other fitness activities.
Purchases and Subscriptions. We collect information about your Product purchases, your type of membership to the Service, and any other purchase you make through the Offering. If you choose to link your Account with any of your Brand Partner Accounts, we will collect information about your membership or subscription status with such Brand Partners, and we may receive information about your purchases and other transactions with them.
Workout Activity. When you use the Offering, we receive information about the workouts and other activities you input, the digital workouts that you select, and metrics associated with those workouts such as your Bike metrics (e.g., cadence, distance, speed, etc.). If you utilize personal training services through the Offering, we will also receive information about the workouts and content your trainer selects for you and other information about your session that you or your trainer input into the Offering. We also receive information about your workouts and other activities from our Brand Partners as part of providing a comprehensive fitness platform when your Account is linked to your Brand Partner Account(s). For example, we may receive information about your check-ins or workouts at a Brand Partner’s gyms or studios or on their digital platforms. We use all of this information to help you track your progress across your linked accounts, to personalize your experience in the Offering, to communicate with you, and for marketing purposes.
Health Tracker Data. If you choose to link data collected by your wearable fitness device, a health data collection application, or other third-party health-tracking offering (“health tracker”) to your Account, or if you have linked a health tracker to one or more Brand Partner Accounts linked to your Account, we will receive certain data from those health trackers, for example, calories burned, sleep patterns, heart rate, workout activity and other data collected by the health tracker. We will use this information to help you track your fitness progress across your linked accounts, to tailor your experience within the Offering to your goals and interests, and to communicate with you.
Location Information. When you use the Offering, we will receive your precise location information if you allow us to do so in your device settings. We may also receive your precise location information if you have linked your Account with a Brand Partner Account or health tracker that receives your precise location information, or we may be able to infer such information when you have linked your Account with a Brand Partner Account and visit that Brand Partner’s facility or event. We may also collect the precise location of your device when the application is running in the foreground or background when the application is closed. We use your location information for engagement-based marketing purposes (for example, letting you know that one of your favorite instructors is offering a class at a club or studio located near you, to offer you promotions, etc.), to enable particular features that we believe will enhance your user experience (for example, enabling you to track your outdoor workout activities or access route maps), and to conduct analytics to improve the Offering. You can prevent your device from sharing precise location information at any time through your device’s operating system settings. We also infer your general location information, for example, by using your internet protocol (IP) address.
Device Information. We receive information about the device and software you use to access the Offering, including IP address, web browser type, operating system version, phone carrier and manufacturer, application installations, device identifiers, mobile advertising identifiers, and push notification tokens. We may also receive information about the device and software you have used if you have linked your Account with a Brand Partner Account that receives your device and software information.
Usage Information. To help us understand how you use the Offering and to help us improve it, we automatically receive information about your interactions with the Offering, such as the pages or other content you view, the searches you conduct, purchases you make, the music you listen to, and the dates and times of your interactions within the Offering.
Communications-Related Information. If you contact us directly, we may collect additional information about you. For example, when you provide feedback on the Offering or contact our Member Experience team, we will receive your name, email address, phone number, the contents of a message or attachments that you may send to us, and other information you choose to provide. If you subscribe to receive electronic communications from us, then we will collect certain information from you, such as your email address. We also collect information you provide through your participation in any surveys or studies. When we send you emails, we may track whether you open or interact with them to learn how to deliver a better member experience and improve the Offering.
If you use the Offering to communicate with personal trainers, instructors, or other customers of the Offering, we may log information about your communications (such as length of communications session and originating and terminating phone numbers or IP address) and may monitor or record communications for security purposes and to enforce our Terms and Conditions and our acceptable use policy and to protect our employees, trainers, customers, and other individuals with whom you communicate.
Information from Cookies and Similar Technologies. We may collect personal information using cookies, pixel tags, or similar technologies. At our direction, third parties, such as analytics and advertising partners, may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across different services. To the extent that any of these practices may be considered to be a “sale” of personal information under California law, you have the right to opt out at any time, as detailed in Section 5 below. Cookies are small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Offering. Please review your web browser’s “Help” file to learn the proper way to modify your cookie settings. Please note that if you delete or choose not to accept cookies from the Offering, you may not be able to utilize the features of the Offering to their fullest potential.
Third Party Data. We may occasionally acquire demographic and other data about our customers and prospective customers. We only acquire this information from reputable third parties that have notified you about their data collection practices and given you the opportunity to opt out of the sale of that information. We use this information to better understand and communicate with our customers and to market the Offering.
Careers. If you apply for a job with us, you may submit your contact information and your resume online. We will collect the information you choose to provide with your application and on your resume, such as your education and employment experience.
