Ditch Privacy Policy

Last Updated: 18 April 2023

Your privacy is important to Extent Devices. We developed this Privacy Policy to provide you with information on how we process your personal data when you use Ditch websites and applications. Ditch and Ditch Navigation are Extent Devices brands.

“Personal data” is information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.

Personal data that is processed when you create an account

When you create a Extent Devices account to use with Ditch on the web or on your mobile device, we ask you to provide your email address and password.

Extent Devices processes your email address and password because you use your email address and password to sign in to your account. The legal ground for processing your email address and password for this purpose is based on our legitimate interest in protecting the security of your account.

Extent Devices also processes your email address or other account identifiers for the purpose of sending you important information via e-mail, in-app message, or other means about your Ditch products, services, and apps or your account, such as important safety information or material changes to this Privacy Policy.

Personal data that is processed when you save or edit routes

When you modify or save routes, or add comments to markers, we process your email address to identify the author. Routes and comments are not shared with other users unless you explicity opt in.

We use this information to associate your account with your routes and comments if you choose to do so. The legal ground for processing this information for this purpose is your consent. You may revoke your consent at any time by deleting the review or comment or by deleting your account.

Personal data that is processed during normal use

When you use Ditch on the web or your mobile device, we collect personal data such as your IP address, GPS location, saved items such as routes, usage information, or other information needed in connection with providing the capabilities of the software to you.

The legal ground for processing this information for this purpose is performance of a contract. If you give your consent, saved items are processed to sync your data to your account and to any other devices you use. The legal ground for processing this information for this purpose is your consent, which you may withdraw at any time by turning this feature off in the app. These usage data, including saved items, are also processed in an aggregated, anonymized manner for improvement of our products and services. The legal ground for processing this information for this purpose is our legitimate interest in providing you with quality products and services.

Personal data that is processed when you attend a Ditch webinar

When you sign up for or attend a Ditch webinar, we collect contact details, such as your name and email address.

This information is processed to provide you access to the desired webinar. The legal ground for processing this information for these purposes is your consent, which you may withdraw at any time by emailing via contact us form.
