    1. Subscription Requirement. In order to use the Runtastic Premium Service for Premium Members, you must (i) be a Registered User, and (ii) pay the stipulated price, including applicable VAT, if any, and any other fees or amounts associated with the Premium Services, by credit card, via AppStores, or any other form of payment accepted by Runtastic (the “Subscription”).

    2. Types and Prices of Subscriptions. Runtastic offers different Subscription periods so that you can choose the one that best satisfies your needs. The different Subscription types and applicable prices are available for viewing here: www.runtastic.com/premium-membership or in the App Stores. All prices are subject to change at Runtastic’s discretion at any time. Any price changes will be announced on the Platform or in the App Stores.

    3. Payment.

      1. Payment is made in advance for each subscription period. In other words, you can select the subscription period that best satisfies your needs to access the Premium Services. Once you signed up and paid for the Subscription, the selected validity period will be associated with your account.

      2. Payments for the entire term of your Premium Membership shall be due immediately upon invoicing. Payment can be made using different online payment systems. If Runtastic is unable to collect any fees from an account designated by the user due to lack of funds, the user shall bear all costs arising therefrom, including bank charges related to any debit entries or similar charges. Runtastic may deliver invoices and payment reminders to the user by email.

    4. Automatic Renewal. When your Subscription period expires, your credit card will be charged automatically with the standard subscription price which was valid at the time of Subscription, i.e., special offer prices do not apply in this case, and your Subscription will be renewed for the same period of time unless you cancel your Subscription, at least prior to the expiration of your current Subscription. The standard subscription price can be viewed on the Platform and in the App Stores.

    5. Cancellation. You may cancel your Subscription to Runtastic Premium Service for Premium Members at any time by initiating the cancellation on the Platform or via the App Store. Unless otherwise provided for in Section 8, Runtastic will not refund previously paid amounts.

    6. Expiration. Subject to Section 6.4, for lack of a user’s cancellation of such user’s Subscription, each Subscription period ends only upon expiration of the agreed-upon time period, and regardless of the user’s actual use of the Runtastic Premium Service for Premium Members during such period. Each user can check the length of the current Subscription period by viewing such user’s account information.

    7. Contact. Please contact us for any questions you might have or to report any violations of the Premium Conditions in this Section 6 at premium@runtastic.com

    8. Application of Other Rules. Unless otherwise specified in this Section 6, all other provisions of these General T&C apply also to the Premium Members.

    1. Discontinuation of Apps. Runtastic reserves the right to discontinue one or more Apps. All users shall be given notice of the discontinuation of the App. After this notification, Premium Members shall be able to use the App for the duration of their current Subscription period. Please note that during this period the two following limitations apply:
      1. It may not be possible to download the App on another device.
      2. Runtastic will not update the App during this period. This means that if the operating system of your device is updated or if other relevant third party technical services change during this period, it may not be possible to use the App any longer. Runtastic assumes no liability for this.
      If you have purchased your Premium Membership through an App that will be discontinued, your Subscription will not be automatically renewed and will expire at the end of your current Subscription. If you have purchased your Premium Membership through another App - that will not be discontinued - automatic renewal as described in Section 6.4 shall still occur. Subject to the two limitations as described above, only if Runtastic cannot provide the possibility for you to use the App until your current Subscription period has ended, are you entitled to a pro rata refund of the payment for the current Subscription of your Premium Membership. If this occurs, you can contact Runtastic (see Section 6.7) to claim your refund.

    2. Notice. Runtastic may give notice as mentioned under Section 7.1 by informing you either by email or through communication within the Runtastic Products.

    1. General. Each user shall have the right to terminate the use of Runtastic products at any time via his/her account settings. Such termination shall be confirmed to the user.

    2. Runtastic’s Termination Right. Additionally, Runtastic reserves the right to terminate a user’s membership for important reasons, such as due to gross breaches of the user’s obligations as set forth in these T&C and ancillary agreements.

Moreover all users will see the amount of Followers you have and the amount of people you follow. When your profile is a “private profile” other users can send you a request to become your Followers. Once you accept this request, all information, which according to your privacy settings, you share with Followers, will become visible for those users, your Followers.

      News Feed. Our services allow viewing and sharing information, including through posts, likes, and comments. Certain actions, such as tracking an activity, starting a training plan or upgrading to Premium Membership, will be automatically posted in the News Feed.

      Challenges. These are competitions with a specific goal in a defined timeframe. There are different challenges available for registered users to join and with the possibility to win prices.

The Products include a “LIVE Tracking” feature (“LIVE Tracking”), which enables other Runtastic users to see the route and data, including heart rates, of your sports activity on certain of the Products. LIVE Tracking can only be either completely activated or completely deactivated. LIVE Tracking is deactivated by default and can be activated by you at your own discretion. Once activated, it stays activated for new activities, unless you turn it off again. By activating the feature, you accept the responsibility for such activation at your own risk. If you do not want to give third parties access to your training route and data, then LIVE Tracking should not be activated.

  1. Annex 4 - Information for the processing of personal data in the scope of the Brazilian Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados („LGPD“)

      Whenever personal data is processed to make our apps, websites or other services usable in Brazil or you are located in Brazil at the time we collect your personal data, the LGPD applies. Overall, the LGPD is very similar to the GDPR in terms of its regulatory framework. Nevertheless, there are small deviations and additions which are explained in this Annex. Accordingly, this annex is supplementary to the information given in our Privacy Policy and applicable where the LGPD applies

    1. Legal Basis. The LGPD acknowledges the exercise of rights in judicial, administrative, or arbitral proceedings and protection of credit as legitimate bases for data processing. Accordingly, please note that in addition to the legal bases as set forth in Legal Bases of the Privacy Policy, we might process your personal data because this is necessary to exercise our rights in judicial, administrative, or arbitral proceedings to which you and we are parties or to protect credit, where applicable.
    2. Types of processing activities we perform. For the purposes mentioned in WHY WE PROCESS DATA (“PURPOSES”) of the Privacy Policy, we carry out all necessary processing activities such as: collection, storage, sorting, query, matching, display, extract and arrangement. We might also access, inspect and evaluate your personal data e.g., to determine your success in a certain challenge, in connection with support services or to ensure compliance with our terms of use. Furthermore, it may be that we anonymize personal data and – e.g., if you ask us to do so – delete, block or correct it.
    3. Processing Location. Your personal data is processed and therefore transmitted to outside the Brazilian territory. Since we do not have any data centers or other data processing facilities in Brazil, this is necessary for all purposes described in WHY WE PROCESS DATA (“PURPOSES”) of the Privacy Policy.
    4. Contact / Data Protection Officer. If you have any questions about data protection, the handling of your personal data or your rights as a data subject, please contact us at any time by sending an email to the Email Address or via post to our address given in the Privacy Policy . Our data protection officer Martin Grossberger and his Team will take care of your request.
    5. Responsibility for the data processing. Runtastic is responsible for all data processing activities performed under our Privacy Policy. Runtastic is also responsible, if certain processing activities are carried out by contractors of Runtastic on behalf of Runtastic. These contractors are called processors and are contractually bound to process your personal data strictly in accordance with and only within the scope of our instructions. They must also ensure strict data security standards, must not disclose your personal data without our instruction and are obliged to stop processing the personal data immediately in case of termination of the contract.
    6. If you are a member of the adidas Membership Program, adidas is responsible for the processing of your data for the relevant purposes.

      If you connect to the service of one of our partners and export personal data from our apps to these services, the respective partner offering the service is responsible for the data processing from the moment of the export.

    7. Privacy rights. Regarding your personal data being processed by Runtastic in the scope of the LGPD, you have the following rights that can be enforces as described in the Privacy Policy or as indicated below:
      • confirmation of the existence of the processing - this partly corresponds to the Right of Access as described in the Privacy Policy and can be enforced accordingly;

      • portability of the personal data to another service provider or product provider, by the means of an express request, pursuant with the regulations of the national authority, and subject to commercial and industrial secrets - this corresponds to the Right to Data Portability as described in the Privacy Policy and can be enforced accordingly;

      • information about public and private entities with which we have shared the personal data;

    8. Please note that the rights mentioned are not absolute rights. In individual cases it is possible that the exercise of these rights is opposed by rights or obligations of Runtastic or third parties.

    9. Possibility of denying consent and the consequences. If the Privacy Policy indicates that the processing of your personal data for a certain purpose is based on your consent, please be advised that you are not obligated to give such consent and that you may revoke a consent you have given at any time.
