Last updated: 15 June 2022
When we talk about the “Services” in this Policy, we are referring to the use of software applications and platforms made available online to customers for the purpose of tracking physical training and historical injury profiles of athletes.
Kitman Labs Limited, an Irish registered company, is the service provider for all customers located within Europe, the Middle East and Africa (collectively, “EMEA”) and is the data controller of the personal data of EMEA-based customers. Kitman Labs Inc., a US company, provides the Services to customers located outside EMEA (such as those in the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Asia) and is the company responsible for the personal data of non-EMEA based customers.
What Information Does Kitman Collect and Receive?
Kitman may collect, store and analyse information (including personal data and sensitive personal data such as health related data) about individuals (such as athletes) whose personal data is processed by Kitman during the provision of the Services to its customers (“Customer Data”). This information is controlled by Kitman’s customers and is processed by Kitman in accordance with the agreement for Services (“Customer Agreement”). To the extent that Kitman collects, stores and analyses Customer Data, Kitman does so on behalf of its customers and is a “data processor” only.
If Customer Data includes your personal data or you are using the Services by invitation of a Kitman customer, whether that customer is your employer, team, another organization, or an individual, Kitman collects, stores, and analyses your personal data on behalf of its customer. That customer will determine its own policies regarding the treatment of Customer Data which may apply to your use of the Services. Please check with the customer about the policies it has in place.
To provide the Service Kitman also collects the following categories of data (collectively referred to as “Kitman Data”) which it processes in order to provide the Services to its customers:
Account and billing information: To create a Kitman account and to access the Services, customers must provide Kitman with names, usernames, passwords and contact information. In addition customers may provide billing information including bank account details to complete transactions in relation to our Services.
Customer Data: may, among other things, comprise data that identifies a person, and relates to them and their health.
Services usage information: When a customer interacts with the Services, usage information is created and may include details of administrative, technical and support communications with us.
Potential employees: If you apply for a job with Kitman, we will receive the personal data you provide to us such as your name, address, contact information, education details and professional experience.
Customer Lead Generation Data: From time to time we may source lists of potential customers from trusted partners which may contain certain personal data.
How Does Kitman Use the Information it Collects and Receives?
Customer Data will be used by Kitman in accordance with customer’s instructions, including any applicable terms in the Customer Agreement, and as required by applicable law. Kitman will only collect the minimum information which is necessary and relevant to accomplish the legally authorised purpose of collection and will be retained for the minimum relevant periods also.
Kitman uses Kitman Data that it controls:
To provide, update, and improve our Services: This includes use of Kitman Data to support delivery of the Services under a Customer Agreement, prevent or address service errors, security or technical issues, analyse and monitor usage, trends and other activities. We also use de-personalised and aggregated data generated by our customers’ use of our Services to better understand how customers are using the Services in order to improve them. This processing of Kitman Data is required as a matter of contractual necessity and is also necessary for our legitimate interests which are described in more detail below.
To send emails and other communications: If you contact us, we may use your contact information to respond. We may also send service, technical and administrative emails and messages. We may also contact customers to inform them about changes in our Services, our service offerings, and important service related notices, such as security and fraud notices. These emails and messages are considered part of the Services and customers may not opt-out of them. In addition, we occasionally send emails about new product features, events or other news about Kitman. These are marketing messages you can opt out of at any time. This processing of Kitman Data is required as a matter of contractual necessity and is also necessary for our legitimate interests which are described in more detail below.
For billing and account management: We use account and billing information to administer accounts and keep track of billing and payments. This processing of Kitman Data is required as a matter of contractual necessity and may also be required to enable us to comply with our legal obligations.

For research: We use anonymised and aggregated data for business purposes such as performing research on specific subject-areas as well as statistical analysis and machine-learning, market analysis and producing reports. This Policy is not intended to place any limits on what Kitman does with data that is anonymised and aggregated so the data is no longer associated with and can no longer be linked to an identifiable customer of the Services, or athlete whose data we have been provided with by a customer.
To screen potential new employees: We use the personal data you provide to us in a job application as part of our recruitment process.
