Information we collect

We collect information to provide better services to all of our users - from figuring out basic stuff like which region to show courses in, to more complex things like how our apps are used and what might make them crash.

We collect information in the following ways:

Information you give us

For example, course data you provide is shared openly with all users of our apps unless explicitly set as "Private" course data. Your contacts can be used to create players if you want to and may be stored on both your device(s) and our servers.

Account

We use your primary email to associate your players, games and courses with you. Even while you are not signed in, any course you create will also be logged to our servers with your primary email address. If you log in to the app we will associate the email account you've signed in with to your data. Once you are signed in your data can also be backed up on our servers and will be stored with your account which is identified by your email address. We do not see, nor handle your password in any way as that is securely taken care of by Google services.

Contacts

We allow you to create players in the app from your list of contacts. We do not access nor use your contacts in any other way.

Location

You can use your location to create course maps, view course maps and locate course maps. Your location can be tracked in the app to show you your location on a map and to display distances to hole tee/baket and to calculate throwing distances. You may also use you location to track disc throws.

Camera

You can use your camera to create avatars for your players. Avatars are only local to the device where you added the picture and is not sent outside the app at any point.
