Privacy Policy for Skamper App and Skamper website

At Skamper, we are committed to protecting your privacy and ensuring that your personal information is handled in accordance with applicable data protection laws. This Privacy Policy outlines how we collect, use, and disclose your personal information when you use the Skamper app and web site.

Who we are

The Skamper app and website (both known as ‘Skamper”) are owned and operated by Skamper Limited , a company registered in Scotland with company number No.SC742632. Registered Office: 5/ 12 Donaldson Crescent, Edinburgh, United Kingdom, EH12 5FB. 

Collection of Personal Information

We collect personal information from you when you use Skamper. This includes your name, email address, gender, and date of birth. We use this personal information to provide target times for your runs, to calculate your Skamper Grade on completion of each run, and to display your results in the leaderboards.

Location Information

To provide you with nearby running routes, Skamper requires access to your location. We will ask for your permission to access your location information when you first use the app. If you grant us permission, we will use your location information to suggest routes based on your current location or another location of your choosing.

During your activity, we will continue to collect location information, even if the app is being used in the background, to track your progress and to record your registration at the checkpoints and completion of a successful run.  The Skamper app stops tracking your location on successful completion of your run. We do not share your location information with any third parties unless required by law and we do not retain the detailed track of your run, only the times at which you visit the checkpoints. 

Notification Permissions

Skamper may also require you to enable notifications on your device. This allows us to send you updates on your progress during your run and on successful completion. We will only send you notifications that are related to your activity, and we will not use your notification permissions for any other purpose.

Disclosure of Personal Information

We do not disclose your personal information to third parties unless required by law. We may disclose your personal information to our service providers who assist us with the operation of Skamper, but only to the extent necessary for them to provide their services to us. Our service providers are required to keep your personal information confidential and are not permitted to use your personal information for any other purpose.

Website Forms

By submitting a form are sending personal details which may include your name, email, and postcode. We use these details to contact you regarding the availability of test courses in your area.

Feedback and Media

We greatly value user feedback and appreciate when individuals take the time to submit ratings, comments, and associated images through the app to help us understand any problems or suggestions that you may have. We will not publish or share this information. We may contact you in response to your feedback for the purpose of further discussion or clarification if necessary. Our aim is to better understand your perspective and provide any necessary assistance or information. We may also contact you for research purposes or occasional marketing purposes. If, at any point, you would prefer not to be contacted further regarding your feedback or for research or marketing purposes, please let us know, and we will respect your preferences. 

Data Security

We take the security of your personal information seriously and take reasonable measures to protect it from unauthorised access, disclosure, and alteration. However, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure, so we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information.

Changes to Privacy Policy

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. Any changes will be posted on this page, and we encourage you to review this Privacy Policy regularly. Your continued use of Skamper after any changes to this Privacy Policy will signify your acceptance of the changes.
