This Privacy Policy describes how we treat the information we collect when you participate within the Kitesurf Data Logger & Co. community (here after "KDL"). We also describe various KDL features so you can be mindful of what and where you share content (more features are described in FAQ page). By using the KDL website and mobile application, you are agreeing to be bound by the following Privacy Policy.


Personal information we collect

When you create an account, we require an email address (we send you an email to verify it during the account creation process); this email acts as user identifier. You may also elect to add a personal picture that represents you within KDL, indicate a nick name, your home city/country and add your mood. This information will be visible to the public, but your email address will remain private. You may modify any of your information at any time via your settings page, except the email address and nick name. We collect the information that you elect to share with us.

Information collected automatically

When you access KDL via the website and/or mobile application, we may store your public IP address and gather user actions for analytics to improve KDL for everyone.

Creating your contents

The key functionality of KDL is to store kitesurf records (session records, called "logs" and session places, called "spots") by means of the KDL mobile app and images or comment by means of the KDL website for the public to find (log information, spot information, pictures, location information, etc. here after are "Content"). As you create these records you should be mindful of your privacy. You may not want to leave a note publicly that identifies where you live. Additionally, you should be mindful of the privacy of others when you create records. While you may be comfortable sharing an anecdote of your great kitesurf session, your friends or other people kitesurfing at same time/place may prefer that their performance is not described in such a way. If you do find that your personal data have been disclosed in an unwanted manner, please CONTACT us.

KDL website restrictions

KDL website provide a limited acces with anonymous people browsing the KDL website: user profile page, log detail page and spot detail page access is allowed to registered users (and correctly logged in) only. Any person can create an account for free. These information are available via KDL mobile application too because app/server communication requires valid credentials and autentication (KDL mobile application user is a registered user).

Follow your friends. Who is following me?

KDL allows users to create a personal list of preferred members to follow; followed member's logs and spots are presented directly in the user page. Each user can see who is following him/her by checking the personal list of follower members; a user can block a member to comment his/her logs/spot and can prevent a member to add his/her account in the member's following list. The blocked member can't interact with the blocking user, however the blocked member can still access the blocking user's records by accessing the user public page (upon authentication).

Joining KDL Community

Each user can decide to participate or not to KDL by registering to the community (by running the wizard on the mobile app or from the website); if a user decides to interrupt his/her participation, he/sha can terminate his/her account (by selecting "delete account" under settings on the mobile app or from the website). Note that if a user does not participate to the community, the mobile application continues to run as in stand-alone mode and any modification or new record is solely stored on the mobile application. See FAQ page for more explanation.

Hide part of user information

KDL mobile application includes a setting "is private" for each record allowing you to hide a log and/or a spot. If a spot is marked as "is private", any log belonging to this spot is hidden as well. In case a record is marked as "private", it is still stored on KDL servers but not visible to the public.
