We are glad that you chose our MapCase Services. We - the team of MapCase - are crazy about sports and we want to motivate you to go out and do more sports.
Collecting as less data as possible, we want to offer to you a social platform where you can make your sportive experiences more intensive and share them with other users - that was our goal in developing the MapCase Services. We kept the primary data entry as low as possible.
We abide by Data Protection Act of the Federal Republic of Germany (in particular the Federal Data Protection Act and the Interstate Treaty on Broadcasting and Telemedia) and the Data Privacy Statement of the European Union.

You can delete your user profile within the MapCase services anytime you want to. This will lead to the irrecoverable deletion of your user profile, and all the connected data like badges, contest-rankings, photos, videos, text, comments and sharings. You can make the deletion directly inside the MapCase services in “settings” - ”your account” or by email to email@example.com.
We use the service “Desk” by Salesforce.com Inc. to provide the best possible support. “Desk” saves your mailing address and your request on servers in the USA. This happens when you give feedback to us (for example in the apps of MapCase) or if you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find the Data Privacy Statement of “Desk” at
The MapCase services use the analytic service “Mixpanel”, a service of Mixpanel Inc., a company founded by the law of the federal state Delaware of the United States of America. The Mixpanel-service records the user-activities and the contents of the mobile application. The data of the recording are transferred to “Mixpanel” (and the Mixpanel Inc.), to enable this. You can find the Data Privacy Statement of Mixpanel at https://mixpanel.com/privacy/
The web pages of MapCase use Google Analytics, an advertising-analysis-service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so called “cookies”, text files which are saved on your computer and which makes it possible, to analyse your using of the web page. The information about your using of the website generated by the cookie is generally transferred and saved on a Google server in the USA. Your IP-address will be shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the agreement of the European Marketing Area, in case of the activation of the IP-anonymization on this website. The complete IP-address will be transferred to a server of Google in the USA and shortened there only in exceptional cases. Google will use this information to analyse your using of the website, to create reports of the website activities, and to provide further services connected with the using of the website and the internet. The IP-address transferred by your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be connected with other data of Google.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by changing the settings of your browser-software; but it might reduce your experience of functions of the website. You can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie about your website usage (incl. your IP-address) by Google, and the conversion of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the Browser-Plugin available at the following link:
http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. You agree with the adaption of the by google collected datas about you in the way and the aim described before, by using this website.
An opposition against the data collection and data saving is possible at anytime with effect to the future. In the face of the discussion about the using of tools for analytics with complete IP-addresses, we want to point once more to the using of the add-on „_anonymizeIp()“ by the website Google Analytics. That means, that IP-addresses are only processed shortened, to exclude a direct reference to a person.
On some pages, we use Facebook plugins, which are controlled by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. Your browser will establish a direct connection with the servers of Facebook, when you visit a page which already has such a plugin. Unfortunately we do not have an influence on the range of the data, which is collected by Facebook with these plugins. By the integration of these plugins, Facebook gets the information that you called up the same page of our web presence. There is also the possibility, that Facebook gets to know and saves your IP-address, even if you are no member of Facebook. You can block the Facebook-plugins by add-ons for your browser, for example with the “Facebook Blocker” for safari, firefox and chrome.
The alternative to the classic registration by “new account” is the using of MapCase services via your Facebook connect login-function, which is practiced by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. Here, you do not have to provide extra data for registration at MapCase services. You just need the mailing address which you use in Facebook and your Facebook password (we and other users of MapCase Services will never see your password, it is inserted directly in your Facebook-form).
After pushing the “Register with Facebook”-button, you have to agree one-time that MapCase Services has the permission to access your Facebook-profile, to use the Facebook-login.
Here, we save the following data of your Facebook-profile on our servers:
If you use the MapCase Services via Facebook-login, you can decide whether your activities are posted on your Facebook-profile. This includes the winning of badges and in which region you are (only the name of the region, not your position).
A Facebook-posting which is developed by collecting a badge includes the following information:
A Facebook-posting which is developed by finishing a session includes the following information:
