Running Affair's Privacy Differentiation

Running Affair has two sets of customers. Our business customers that manage events, such as a race, and those business customers that manage wellness, fitness, and nutrition programs. The second customer set are individual fitness enthusiasts that use the personal fitness resources through one of the Running Affair Journeys.

For our business customer's, one major differentiator is that Running Affair views your customers as exclusively your customers. We take you and your customer's privacy very seriously. Running Affair does not data mine. We do not sell or give user information or your content to anyone for any reason (except during the sales transaction). We do not display third party ads. And, outside of the transaction related information such as a sales receipt, we do not send any sales or advertising information to your customers. However, Running Affair does have facilities that enable you to email additional information to your customers, such as race information, training program schedules, and notifications of your other product offerings.

Similarly for our individual consumer customers, we take your privacy very seriously. Running Affair does not data mine. We do not sell or give user information or content to anyone for any reason (except during the sales transaction). We do not display third party ads.

We do collect some user meta data exclusively for internal use to enhance the product and product experience and to understand what features our customers use. Meta data is about the content not the content itself. An example of meta data usage is answering questions like "how many users use a given feature? And, what aspects of a feature are used and not used?"

We do look at sales accounting information for the purposes of billing our customers for their use of Running Affair.
