We built Count.It to help create healthy, fun community for real world groups. We do not make our money by advertising, or by selling your personal activity data to anyone. We charge groups for access to our paid PRO features. You can remove your account at any time, and we will delete your data.
That's the big picture. Now, here are more details. When you sign up for Count.It, we ask for:
When you connect a fitness tracker (e.g. Apple Health, Google Fit, Fitbit, etc.), you grant Count.It access to some of the data on your device. In practice, Count.It only collects the activity data that we use for our challenges. We do not collect biometric data, such as weight or heart rate, nor do we gather sleep or nutrition-related data.
We also collect your fitness tracker type, and your location so we can map your activity to the correct timezone.
What can your friends or co-workers see?
Count.It converts raw activity data into your Count.It score. When other members of your group look at your group's leaderboards, they will see calculations based on your daily Count.It score for different period of time, i.e. monthly average, challenge total, best day, etc. They do not get access to the details of your fitness tracker daily logs. The smallest unit of time for a leaderboard is a day. We do not show data by the minute or hour, so nobody can track your movements over the course of a day.
