TERMS OF USE

Use of Kubios services requires that you accept the terms and conditions described below. We encourage you to read the terms carefully. Use of some services subject to a charge require that you also accept additional or special terms of those services. These additional Service-Specific Terms of Use are presented after these General Terms of Use.

Data protection

Our Privacy Policy describes which personal data we collect from you in each of our services, how we use the data, and where we store it. The privacy policy also describes your rights regarding privacy and outlines who can access your data, where to get help, and how you can change your settings. You need to read our Privacy Policy before signing up for Kubios services and starting to use our services.

Creating and managing a user account

To use our services, you need to create a user account. For this, we need some information about you, such as name and email address. When you create an account, you are asked to provide certain information (age, gender, height, weight, max heart rate) required to enable the functionality of the services provided to you. We request this information to be able to provide you accurate personalised data, such as personalised energy expenditure or training intensity.

When you create an account, we confirm your email address and ask your permission for certain data-processing actions: permission to handle personal information (including sensitive personal information such as heart rate data), and permission to share anonymized data collected from you with third party research organisations for academic research purposes only (we like to support scientific research and therefore we ask for your consent to this matter). When you create an account, your data is stored on Kubios administered servers (provided by a third party), which are located in the EU/EEA area, for a duration of three years. Your data will not be transferred outside the EU/EEA area.

To use our services, you need a Third Party device to make heart rate measurements (beat-to-beat or IBI measurement required).
