Your privacy is very important to us. This document discloses how we use and share your TrackMan information with others. It also discloses how we collect and use your content and information with good and fair business practices in mind.
Our technology is based on the Doppler Radar Principle. It essentially detects microwaves reflecting from the movement of a baseball’s flight. The change in frequency of these receiving waves is what makes it possible for us to track what happens at the very moments of throw release, hit impact, and ball flight movement in-between.
TrackMan collects data through any TrackMan proprietary channel, such as TrackMan developed software, apps, websites and devices, as well as third parties. For purposes of this notice, references to our “Website” should be understood to include baseball.trackman.com, connect.baseball.trackman.com, other websites managed by TrackMan, as well as our apps.
We collect three distinct kinds of personal data:
1. Personal information
In addition to receiving the data from offline sources such as through third party partners, we may collect information such as your name, email, physical address, telephone number, gender, age, date of birth, and other data, for example, when you fill out the online profile on our Website with this information. The more we know from your profile, the better we can customize our messaging and your experience. We may also collect other data including (i) any username and password information provided for Website registration and login; (ii) credit card or other payment related information for products or services offered by TrackMan; (iii) user content (e.g., photos, videos, comments, and other materials) with associated metadata that you may voluntarily provide or post to our Website; and (iv) communications between you and TrackMan via email or other means.
2. TrackMan data
We collect TrackMan data, which is data generated when you interact with our products and services such as by participating in a game where TrackMan devices are used to record game data. The data can be collected by TrackMan or through third party partners administering TrackMan equipment. The data collected can include individual statistics, ball flight data, and video recordings of your play. The TrackMan data is typically linked to your personal information.
3. Online usage data
Our Website’s servers may automatically record certain log file information, including your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on our Website, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, mobile device identifier, geo-location data and other such information. We may also collect similar information from emails sent to our users which then help us track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. The information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of our Website and services.
We use your data in at least five distinct ways:
1. For your personal benefit
We use the above data for various purposes, but in particular to enhance your TrackMan experience through a more personalized and shared interaction. Our TrackMan data allows us to tailor information specifically for your benefit. As an example (not meant to be comprehensive of all uses), video screen casts and data reports may enable you to better understand and improve your player habits.
2. For statistical purposes
We also use your TrackMan data for statistical purposes (aggregated data) where we do not reveal your identity, nor does it directly relate to you, even if we have included your personal data. For example, we may aggregate personal data to evaluate skills according to age, gender or level of play. These are typical, but not exhaustive examples.
3. For use in competitions
Our products also allow you to compare your personal data with other baseball players that played in the same or different tournaments, showcases, and other competitions in an effort to benefit your overall game. Such comparisons may display your name on publicly displayed leaderboards on our Website. Another example may be your results from one of our hitting challenges, which may be shared on these publicly, displayed leaderboards. These are typical, but not exhaustive examples.
4. For use as scouting / evaluation purposes
We may also share your TrackMan data with organizations interested in using it for scouting, statistical and/or player evaluation purposes (such as sports agencies). The personal information provided to these organizations is limited to what is necessary for the TrackMan data to be properly represented to the organizations. An example is a raw data set of all TrackMan data collected at a tournament and provided in a .csv file format where each play is represented on a separate row that includes name, contact information and game data, as well as proprietary or third party IDs associated with a particular player.
5. For Website activities
We may also use your information to help you efficiently access your information after you sign in to our Website; provide personalized content and information to you and others, which could include online ads or other forms of marketing; provide, improve, test, and monitor the effectiveness of our Website; develop and test new products and features; monitor metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns for our Website; or diagnose or fix technology problems.
Any information (e.g., username or name) or content (e.g., picture) that you voluntarily share or disclose for posting on our Website may be made available to the public.
