IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT INSTALL, USE, REGISTER TO OR OTHERWISE ACCESS ANY APPS.

Non-personal Data
For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “non-personal data” means information that does not directly identify you, which may include your age, weight, and gender. Additionally, non-personal data includes “aggregate” and “de-personalized” information, which is data TDN collects about the use of TDN Apps, from which any personally identifiable data has been removed.
TDN collects non-personal data from you to make your use of the Apps more efficient and useful. For example, if you provide non-personal data about you, the App may provide certain information about your workout such as calories burned or other tailored calculations about your workout.
TDN also uses tools and third party analytical software to automatically collect and use certain non-personal data that does not directly enable TDN to identify you. The types of non-personal data TDN may collect and use include, but are not limited to: (i) device properties, including, but not limited to unique device identifier or other device identifier (“UDID”); (ii) device software platform and firmware; (iii) mobile phone carrier; (iv) geographical data such as zip code, area code and location; (v) game score and achievements; (vi) other non-personal data as reasonably required by TDN to enhance the Apps and other TDN products and services.
TDN shares non-personal data, including both data you provide to TDN and data which is automatically collected, with TDN’s partners and contractors for purposes of analyzing usage of the Apps, advertisement serving, managing and providing the Apps, and to further develop the Apps and other TDN services and products.
You recognize and agree that the analytics companies utilized by TDN may combine the information collected with other information they have independently collected from other services or products relating to your activities. These companies collect and use information under their own privacy policies.
Ad Serving Technology
TDN reserves the right to use and disclose collected non-personal data for purposes of advertisement by TDN or TDN’s partners and contractors. TDN employs third party ad serving technologies that use certain methods to collect information as a result of ad serving through Apps. TDN or third parties operating the ad serving technology may use your demographic and location information, non-personal data you provide to TDN, and information logged from your hardware or device to ensure that appropriate advertising is presented within the Service. TDN or third parties may collect and use data for this purpose including, but not limited to IP address (including for purposes of determining your approximate geographic location), UDID, software, applications, hardware, browser information, internet and on-line usage information and in-game information. The foregoing data may be used and disclosed in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the privacy policy of the company providing the ad serving technology.
You recognize and agree that the advertising companies who deliver ads for TDN may combine the information collected with other information they have independently collected from other services or products. These companies collect and use information under their own privacy policies. These ad serving technologies are integrated into Apps; if you do not want to be subject to this technology, do not use or access Apps. Although TDN takes commercially reasonable steps to instruct such advertising companies to comply with the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy, TDN does not have access to or control of third party technologies.
Personal Data

TDN may use collected personal data for purposes of analyzing usage of the Apps, providing customer and technical support, managing and providing Apps (including managing advertisement serving) and to further develop the Apps and other TDN services and products. TDN may combine non-personal data with personal data.

Personal data collected by TDN is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public. To prevent unauthorized on-line access to personal data, TDN maintains personal data behind a firewall-protected server. However, no system can be 100% secure and there is the possibility that despite TDN’s reasonable efforts, there could be unauthorized access to your personal data. By using the Apps, you assume this risk, and TDN will not be liable for any misappropriation or theft of your personal data.
Please be aware of the open nature of certain social networking and other open features of the Apps TDN may make available to you.

Any data that you disclose in any of these forums, blogs, chats or the like is public information, and there is no expectation of privacy or confidentiality. TDN is not responsible for any personal data you choose to make public in any of these forums.
If you are under 15 years of age or a minor in your country of residence, please ask your legal guardian’s permission to use or access the Apps. TDN takes children’s privacy seriously, and encourages parents and/or guardians to play an active role in their children’s online experience at all times. TDN does not knowingly collect any personal information from children below the aforementioned age and if TDN learns that TDN has inadvertently gathered personal data from children under the aforementioned age, TDN will take reasonable measures to promptly erase such personal data from TDN’s records.
TDN may store and/or transfer your personal data to our affiliates and partners in and outside of EU/EEA member states and the United States in accordance with applicable law and this Privacy Policy. TDN may disclose your personal data to third parties in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, restructuring, the sale of substantially all of TDNs’s stock and/or assets or other corporate change, including, without limitation, during the course of any due diligence process provided, however, that this Privacy Policy shall continue to govern such personal data.
