This Privacy Policy applies to our personal golf & fitness activity, record monitoring products (“Devices”), our websites located at www.voicecaddie.com, the Voice Caddie Manager (VCM: “Software and Firmware”) and Voice Caddie mobile applications (APP). The Devices, Sites, Software and Apps are collectively referred to in this Policy as the “Voice Caddie-service,” and by proceeding to use the Voice Caddie-service, users consent that we may process the data that we collect from user in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Because we’re always looking for easy & new and innovative ways to help our users achieve their improving golf and fitness activity goals, this policy may change over time, but we clarify that any future changes will never affect data that was collected under a previous version of this policy.

Voice Caddie collects data as follows:

When user creates a Voice Caddie account:

To access data including golf and fitness records collected by user’s own Device, users must create a Voice Caddie account. At that time, users need to be asked some personal information, including user’s email address and date of birth or demography. Email address that users already have will be user’s Voice Caddie account username, which users will use to log-into their account. We don’t expose user email address to other users. Others will see on behalf of the name or nickname users enter in user’s profile settings. Users can also create user’s Voice Caddie account using a different way such as a Facebook or Kakao talk account. At that time, users need to be asked permission to access basic information from that account, such as username, picture for profile, and friend list. Users can also stop sharing that information with us at any time by removing Voice Caddie’s access to that account. We will access user’s phone’s contact list for the purpose of letting user identify contacts who are Voice Caddie users. Even in this time, we never store user’s phone’s contact list, and it is deleted immediately after it is performed for this purpose.

When users add information to an account:

Users can customize their Voice Caddie experience by adding other types of information to their account, such as entering a golf log, setting an alarm, decorating user’s profile with pictures, participating in community, sending messages to user’s Voice Caddie friends.
