Your privacy is critically important to us. We don’t want to be creepy stalkers or evil spammers. We have a few fundamental principles:
The following statement discloses the guidelines Breakpoint Studio has established for protecting the information you provide to us during your visit to the site and while using the app.

If you create a Slopes account, we collect and use the following information to provide, improve, protect, and promote our Services.
Slopes is designed as a way to track, relive, and share your days skiing and snowboarding. To do that, we need to gather and process certain information about you. (“Your Stuff”).
We collect, and associate with your account, the information you provide to us when you do things such as sign up for your account, subscribe to a paid plan, and set up two-factor authentication (like your name, email address, phone number, payment info, and physical address) Personally identifiable account information is stores separately from GPS and location data.
Slopes includes various location-based features such as tracking outdoor winter sports activities. To provide these location-based features Slopes will use precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your mobile device, when you use the app.
This location data is stored locally on your phone and you may delete it at any time. If you sign up for a Slopes account, we will store a copy of this location data on our servers to provide online backup and synchronization between all your devices.
For third-party partners, such as social media networks, this information will only be shared with your explicit permission, and only if you choose to share it.

They're cool, and not creepy, otherwise we wouldn't be using them.
