Privacy Policy

Last Updated: 1 December, 2020

Categories of Personal Data Processed by Wandrer

Personal data that is processed when you create a Wandrer account:

When you create a Wandrer account, we ask you to provide your email address and name.

PURPOSES AND LEGAL GROUNDS: (a) Wandrer processes your email address because you use your email address and your password to sign in to your account. The legal ground for processing your email address for this purpose is based on Wandrer’s legitimate interest in protecting the security of your account. (b) Wandrer also processes your email address for the purpose of sending you activity statistics updates or material changes to this Privacy Policy. The name you provide is associated with your account profile, and is displayed on the Wandrer website. The legal ground for processing your email address and name for these purposes is Wandrer’s legitimate interest in providing you information about your Wandrer apps or account or material changes to this Privacy Policy. (d) Wandrer also processes your email address to associate it with your Wandrer account when you interact with our customer support representatives. The legal ground for this processing is our legitimate interest in providing quality customer support.

Personal data that is processed when you link a third-party account to Wandrer:

Wandrer stores the identification and authentication information provided by the third party (such as Strava), and transfers any activity data from the service for which you have allowed access. When processing Strava data, Wandrer is also bound by the terms of the Strava API Agreement.

PURPOSES AND LEGAL GROUNDS: Wandrer stores your authentication credentials in order to fulfill your request to link a third-party account to Wandrer. The legal ground for processing your email address for this purpose is based on Wandrer’s legitimate interest in processing ride data on the user's request, even if it originated with a third party.

Personal data that is processed when you purchase anything through the Wandrer website:

If you purchase anything through the Wandrer website, no payment card information will be accessible to Wandrer. A third party (Stripe) handles all customer payment information when Wandrer customers make a purchase on the Wandrer website.

Personal data that is processed when you complete an activity:

Wandrer processes geographical location data that you provide to it, either directly or through a third-party account (such as Strava) that is connected to Wandrer. No access to precise/raw GPS data will be made available to any user other than yourself without your consent.

When you visit the Wandrer site:

When you visit the Wandrer site, we collect information about resources you request on the site to ensure data availability and site performance.

When you receive email from Wandrer:

Wandrer makes use of third-party email sending services. Those services may track the activities associated with these emails, such as whether they were opened and whether links in the emails were clicked on. Wandrer uses this data to analyze the level of engagement with its emails.

When you use the Wandrer browser extension:

Wandrer receives your planned route information (including latitude/longitude pairs) in order to calculate anticipated points increases from the route. Wandrer uses your extension key to authenticate you and display the appropriate data on your map.

Other disclosures:

We may disclose personal data about you to others: (a) if we have your valid consent to do so; (b) to comply with a valid subpoena, legal order, court order, legal process, or other legal obligation; (c) to enforce any of our terms and conditions or policies; or (d) as necessary to pursue available legal remedies or defend legal claims. We may also transfer your personal data to an affiliate, a subsidiary or a third party in the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of Wandrer’s business, assets or stock, including, without limitation, in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceeding, provided that any such entity that we transfer personal data to will not be permitted to process your personal data other than as described in this Privacy Policy without providing you notice and, if required by applicable laws, obtaining your consent.

Data Storage and Security

Your data in Wandrer is stored a database managed by Amazon Web Services. It is encrypted in transit over the network using the TLS protocol, and at rest (when stored on the disk).

Retention of Personal Data

We will retain your personal data as long as your Wandrer account is considered to be active. In addition, see below under “Your Rights” for a description of your right of erasure.


We request individuals under the age of 13 in the U.S. and under the age of 16 in the rest of the world not provide personal data to Wandrer. If we learn that we have collected personal data from a child under the age of 13 in the U.S. or under 16 in the rest of the world, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.

Privacy Policy Updates

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time as we add new products and apps, as we improve our current offerings and as technologies and laws change. You can determine when this Privacy Policy was last revised by referring to the “Last updated” legend at the top of this page. Any changes will become effective upon our posting of the revised Privacy Policy.

We will provide notice to you if these changes are material and, where required by applicable law, we will obtain your consent. This notice will be provided by email or by posting notice of the changes on the Wandrer websites and apps that link to this Privacy Policy.
