General

Polar is the leading pioneer of heart rate monitoring and sports technology, trusted by professional athletes and fitness enthusiasts alike. We help athletes of all levels reach their targets and optimise their performance. We provide the best tools for the way forward, whether your goal is to do your first race ever or to break the world record.

We also provide you with a number of online tools that help you reach your personal training and well-being goals more easily. We want to support you through our community and provide an opportunity to share your experiences with other like-minded athletes. Your Polar device and the Flow web service together help you maximise the benefits of your training experience.

Use of the Polar services requires that you accept the terms and conditions detailed below. By approving the terms, you enter into a legally binding agreement with Polar. We encourage you to read the terms carefully. Additionally, the use of some services (for example, those provided to businesses and organisations) requires the acceptance of additional or special terms of those services. Additional Service-Specific Terms of Use are presented below after General Terms of Use.

To use the services, you have to create a Polar account. Before that, we recommend that you read the Polar Privacy Notice, where we specify which personal data we collect from you and how we use it. For more details on data protection, please refer to the FAQ.

Data Protection

Our Privacy Notice lays out — both generally and for each product — which personal data we collect from you in each of our services, how we use the data, and where we store it. The Privacy Notice also details your rights regarding privacy and outlines who can access your data, where to get help, and how you can change your settings. You need to read the Privacy Notice before signing up for the Polar services and starting to use our services.

Creating and Managing a User Account

To use our services, you first need to create a user account. For this, we need some information about you, such as name, e-mail address and country. When you create the account, you will also be asked to provide information to enable the functionality of the services provided (age, gender, height, weight, level of physical activity). We request this information to be able to provide you with training data that’s as accurate as possible, because your personal characteristics, such as age, affect calorie burn and other calculations we give you. We trust you to provide this data correctly.

When you sign up, we confirm your e-mail address and ask your permission for certain data-processing actions, as required by law: permission to handle personal information, permission to handle sensitive personal information (such as heart rate data), and permission to transfer data to a country other than your home country (Polar uses servers provided by a third party to provide its Flow service). These servers may be located either within the EU or outside it. The actual user data is stored on servers located within the EU, but information such as the system’s monitoring data is saved on service providers’ servers located outside the EU. If you are under 13, we also request your parent’s or guardian’s permission to be able to create an account for you. Once your account is created, you can always change the permissions and the data you provided when you signed up by choosing Settings in any of our services.

If, at any time, you wish to stop using our services and close your account, you can do so either directly in the service, or ask our Customer Care for help. Please note that when your user account is closed, all your information will be deleted and cannot be recovered after deletion. Make sure that you have saved all your data elsewhere before your account is closed.

Use of Services

Most Polar products are designed to be used with the Polar Flow service. Together, your Polar product and the Polar Flow service create a system that automatically stores all your training, activity, and sleep data. With the tools in the service, you can analyse your performance, monitor your progress and see how you’re proceeding towards your goals. You can, for example, view training reports for any period you choose or create a personal running programme with individual training sessions that’s transferred directly to your wrist unit (the programmes are not available for all devices).

To use our service, you need a Polar device (such as a sports watch or a heart rate monitor) and a smartphone, tablet or computer to create and manage your account. The Polar product range comprises devices of different generations. Please note that our older devices do not, for example, support the Polar Flow service. Some of our devices can be set up and used without signing up in the so-called stand-alone mode or supported by a smartphone app, but some of our devices require signing up and connecting the device to our service to function correctly. Please check the features of your device listed on the package or on our product pages before you make the purchase. Read more on Polar products here.

Polar devices and services are mainly for physical training and improving fitness. Please note that if you have any medical conditions, you are uncertain whether you can engage in any physical exercise, or you don’t know which sports would be suitable for you, you should consult your doctor. Polar is not responsible for your health and cannot guarantee that you are able to train.

Polar also offers a number of coaching and fitness programme services. You can create different training programmes directly in our service, even ones involving highly demanding training. If you are unsure of whether a training programme is suitable for you, please consult your doctor before you start a programme. For more information on health, please refer to your Polar product manual.

Some of our training programmes feature a health survey. This questionnaire is not the equivalent of a medical check-up and is not intended to assess your health. Your answers to the questions only indicate whether it is possible to create a programme for you.

As a user of Polar services and products, you may receive important notices about them from time to time. These important notices related to the use of products and services are not marketing messages, but are essential information concerning our products and services and their use. For this reason, it is not possible to opt out of receiving them. We also inform all our customers – including those who have opted out of marketing messages – of any changes to our Terms of Use or Privacy Notice. We hope you read these messages, because they may contain important information that applies to you.

Stand-Alone Mode

Our devices are designed to be used together with the Polar Flow app and online service. When you use Polar Flow, you can access all the versatile features of your device, and the device provides you with the exact user experience we have designed for you. However, some Polar devices may be used without registering on our services (“stand-alone mode”). In this case, the device is not linked to any of our services, and your personal details are not transferred to Polar systems. Please note that in the stand-alone mode, not all features of the device may be available.

When you use Polar’s devices in stand-alone mode, Polar does not collect any of your personal data related to the use of Polar devices. However, Polar may collect necessary data on you for other reasons (e.g. when you’re purchasing products in the Polar online store or contacting the Polar Customer Care). If you are planning to purchase a device that may be used in a stand-alone mode, please make sure in advance that the device can be set up and used in the stand-alone mode.

In addition to stand-alone mode, you may use some products, such as heart rate monitors, supported by third-party smartphone apps. Depending on the app, it may not be necessary for you to use Polar’s online services, and no data related to the use of the devices is transferred to Polar. Read more on Polar products here.

Validity

You may stop using Polar services at any time. If you use a premium service, your ability to use the service ends when your paid subscription ends. No refunds are made if you decide to stop using a service before the end of the paid subscription.

To stop using Polar services, close your account, and your data will be deleted. If you want to transfer your data to a third-party service or save them, this must be done before your account is closed. Deleted data cannot be recovered.

The use of services requires confirmation of your e-mail address. If you do not confirm your e-mail address within 30 days of creating an account, your account will be locked. You will be notified of an unconfirmed e-mail address within the services, and you have the option of resending the confirmation mail if you didn’t receive it. If your account is locked due to an unconfirmed e-mail address, you can still resend the confirmation mail to yourself on the sign-in page, even if you cannot sign in to the service. Unconfirmed accounts will be deleted seven (7) months after they were created.

If you remove any of the consents you granted when you were creating an account, your account will be closed and some or all of your data will be deleted. Legislation prohibits us from storing or processing personal data if the customer has not given consent for processing. You will be notified of your data’s deletion whenever you remove any of the consents you had previously granted. However, removing the consent to send marketing messages does not affect your account. You can remove the consent to send marketing messages any time you wish. After removing the consent, you will no longer receive marketing messages, but you can continue to use the service as usual.

If you breach any of these Terms of Use, Polar may cancel your user rights, in which case your account and data will be removed.

Communities

Within the context of its services, Polar also provides interactive discussion spaces, i.e. communities. In these communities, our users may discuss various subjects. Polar wants the communities to be safe and supportive spaces where every participant is valued and respected. Please note that you are responsible for all content provided to the communities and that improper, unethical, or unlawful conduct is prohibited. In cases of misuse, Polar or the moderator of the community (if other than Polar) may exclude you from the discussion space and, where necessary, cancel your right to use Polar services due to a breach of contract.

Polar is not responsible for the content provided by the users of the communities, and all discussion within the communities is content created between participants at their own risk. Polar will only exclude users from communities if necessary.

Fees

Some of the services provided by Polar may be subject to a fee. When you purchase a premium service, both these General Terms of Use and any Service-Specific Terms of Use apply to the service. Please note that when you buy a service or an app from an app store (App Store, Google Play, etc.), the sales terms and conditions of the app store also apply to the transaction.

Use of a premium service requires payment of the applicable fees for that service. No fees that have already been paid will be refunded if the customer decides to stop using that service before the end of paid subscription.

Third-party services

Polar services may also include an option to share or transfer data to third-party services. Polar is not responsible for data once it is transferred out of Polar’s system and Polar can no longer control the data. You are responsible for managing the information you share or transfer out of the system. When you enable the sharing of your information or its transfer into a third-party service, the third party typically requires you to accept its own terms and conditions of use. Please carefully read the third-party terms and conditions and its personal data processing policy before you start using the services. Polar assumes no responsibilities related to the use of third-party services.

Additional Service-Specific Terms of Use

Polar Team Pro

1. SERVICE AND THE RIGHT TO USE IT

1.1 The Polar Team Pro service is a training solution for team sports which offers and records real-time training data such as heart rate, speed and distance data, and includes analysis and reporting functionalities (“Team Pro Service”).

The Service consists of a web service and a compatible Polar Team Pro application (the “Application”), which you need to download separately from Apple App Store, and which requires an iPad as the controlling device. In addition, properly functioning iPad-compatible Team Pro Dock device for the coach and Polar Team Pro sensors for the players are required.

The Team Pro Service is compatible with the Polar Flow service. Someone covered by the Team Pro Service (such as a player on a team) may also have a personal Polar Flow account. With the individual’s consent, it is possible to link a personal Polar Flow account to the Team Pro service. In this case, data related to the workouts of the individual are transferred from one service to the other: he or she can access training data saved in the Team Pro Service through his/her own Polar Flow account, while the Licensee of Team Pro Service (such as a coach, etc.) can access the player’s training data saved in the Flow account. Please note that the use of the Polar Flow service requires the individual to have a device or product compatible with the Polar Flow service.

1.2 The agreement concerning the use of the service is made between the community or organisation accessing the service (“Licensee”) and Polar. Both are hereinafter referred to as “Parties”.

When you accept the Terms of Use, you provide this acceptance on behalf of the Licensee you represent, and you must make sure that you have the right to accept the Terms of Use on behalf of the Licensee. Your acceptance covers both the Polar General Terms of Use and these Service-Specific Terms of Use. You, as the person accepting this agreement and creating the user account on behalf of Licensee, are referred to as “You” and “Admin User”. The term “Licensee” always refers to the licensee of the access right, i.e. the organisation or business using the service. You will be sent a message to the e-mail address you provided when you accepted the agreement to verify the accuracy of your e-mail address and to confirm that the account was created intentionally. The account must be verified within 30 days. Use of the service is contingent upon providing a verified e-mail address. The Admin User Account created at the time of sign-up may also be used as a private user account in other Polar services. When signing in to another service for the first time, you will, depending on the service, be asked for consent to process your data in various ways and for your acceptance of the Terms of Use as a private person.

Once you have accepted this agreement by clicking the “I Accept” button and Licensee has paid the required fee to Polar, Polar will provide you with access to Team Pro Service as Admin User and provide Licensee with a non-exclusive, personal, non-transferable right to use the service. The activation date of the service is hereinafter referred to as “Effective Date”. Polar may provide Licensee support and maintenance services related to the Team Pro Service for compensation, if separately agreed. This Agreement does not limit Polar’s right to provide, sell, license or otherwise market the Team Pro Service to third parties.

1.3 After the termination of this Agreement, Licensee’s right to use the Team Pro Service is terminated and Polar’s obligation to provide the service shall end.

1.4 This Agreement replaces all prior agreements between the Parties concerning the Team Pro Service.

2. POLAR’S RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS

2.1 Team Pro Service will be activated for Licensee’s use within a reasonable time once you have accepted these terms and Licensee has paid the requisite service fee. The service is made available by Polar. Polar may use selected contractors to provide the service.

2.2 Polar shall have the right to monitor the use of the Team Pro Service.

2.3 Polar shall have the right to further develop the Team Pro Service independently and make changes to content and technical implementation, provided the level of the Team Pro Service on whole does not decrease as compared to the level at the Effective Date. Polar shall strive to notify you/Licensee of any such changes and their effective dates as early in advance as possible.

2.4 Polar shall be responsible to Licensee for the usability of the Team Pro Service up to the interface of the internet core network. Polar shall not be responsible or liable for Licensee’s basic IT infrastructure, such as Internet connections, iPads, their operating system versions or the proper functioning of other software. Maintenance and support of the Polar Team Pro sensors and the Team Pro Dock device is not part of this Agreement.

2.5 Under this Agreement, Polar is only responsible for providing Licensee with access to the Team Pro Service. Polar support web pages are maintained to include the basics (Getting Started, FAQs, and Tips) of the Team Pro Service usage. Other training and support services shall be separately agreed to with Polar.

2.6 You can create a user account in the Team Pro Service for Licensee and set the password to allow access rights for Licensee (“Access Rights”). Once you create a user account, you become the Admin User of the service and receive admin rights for the service for the term of the agreement (“Admin User”). Polar can, at any time, change the Access Rights or withdraw them, if Licensee breaches these Terms of Use.

2.7 Under this agreement, Polar acts as the data processor, storing and maintaining the data entered in the Team Pro Service. Polar does not process this data except on instruction from the controller and according to the Terms of Use.

2.8 Polar may provide updates, upgrades, and extensions of the Team Pro Service. Improvements to and extensions of the Team Pro Service are subject to separate fees. Polar shall inform of such possible upgrades, delivery times, their timetables and costs separately.

2.9 Maintenance and Service Breaks

Polar may interrupt the Team Pro Service for basic maintenance, replacement of equipment, or other maintenance that allow Polar to maintain the availability of the Team Pro Service (the “Maintenance Break”).

All Maintenance Breaks shall be planned in advance. Licensees shall be informed of any such Maintenance Breaks affecting the Team Pro Service two (2) weeks before the break. In the event that a Maintenance Break is necessary with less lead time, Polar shall inform each Licensee in advance as soon as reasonably possible. Polar strives to arrange Maintenance Breaks so that they will have as minor an impact on the Team Pro Service as is reasonably possible. Considering that the service is used in all time zones, Maintenance Breaks cannot be arranged at a time that will be optimal for all Users.

Polar has a right to interrupt the Team Pro Service temporarily without advance notice in the event that such interruption is necessary for maintenance, repair, or inspection of equipment or for other similar reasons on emergency basis (the “Service Break”).

Polar will inform the Admin User of such Service Breaks as early as is practically possible via email.

Maintenance of the Team Pro Service does not include correction of error(s) that are caused by you, the Licensee, your subcontractor, third parties, Force Majeure, or other reasons beyond Polar’s reasonable control. In the event that such error is due to reasons not attributable to Polar, Polar shall inform the Admin User and may charge Licensee for examination and/or remediation of error(s) in accordance with Polar’s general price list.

3. CUSTOMER’S GENERAL RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS

3.1 Licensee is responsible and liable for its own business and for the use of the Team Pro Service, as well for ensuring that Licensee is acting according to the laws, regulations, and instructions of the officials.

3.2 Admin User may appoint side users to the Team Pro Service, such as a coach.

3.3 Licensee acts as the data controller and is responsible for what information is saved in the system and how it is handled.

Polar Club

1. SERVICE AND THE RIGHT TO USE IT

1.1 Polar Club is a tablet-based cloud service solution for fitness clubs offering guided workouts and group exercise training classes. The service records and shows real-time training data such as heart rate and saves the training sessions on the user’s own Flow account for subsequent analysis (“Club Service”).

The agreement concerning the use of the service is made between the community or organisation accessing the service (“Licensee”) and Polar. Both are hereinafter referred to as “Parties”.

The Service allows Licensee to access specific data of the members who have signed up for its group exercise classes. The Service allows certain training data to be collected and saved during the classes. The Service consists of the Polar Club application (the “Application”), which Licensee needs to download separately from Apple App Store. Use of the Service requires an iPad as the controlling device; the user interface is the iOS Polar Club application. In addition, properly functioning Polar Bluetooth Smart heart rate sensors or compatible Polar wrist units are required for the participating members.

The Club Service is available for Licensee’s personal use only, and it is forbidden to sell or in any other way transfer these benefits, or the data received from the Service, to any third party. Licensee may only receive data on the performance of those members who have signed up for Licensee’s fitness classes.

As Service is part of the Polar Flow ecosystem, all individual training data is recorded and directly synchronised to Polar Flow service on the member’s personal Polar Flow account, provided that they have signed up for the classes.

1.2 Should there be any doubt, Polar shall be considered a third party in the relationship between you and the members in your classes. Polar shall only provide you with the opportunity to cooperate. All understandings, agreements, or warranties regarding the relationship, your services, or content in your workouts and group exercise classes, if any, shall take place directly between you and the participating members. Polar shall have no responsibility with regard to the services provided by you to your customers.

1.3 When you accept the Terms of Use, you provide this acceptance on behalf of Licensee you represent, and you confirm that you have the right to accept the Terms of Use on behalf of Licensee. Your acceptance covers both the Polar General Terms of Use and these Service-Specific Terms of Use. You, as the person accepting this agreement and creating the user account on behalf of Licensee, are referred to as “You” and “Admin User”. The term “Licensee” always refers to the licensee of the access right, i.e. the organisation or business using the service. You will be sent a message to the e-mail address you provided when you accepted the agreement to verify the accuracy of your e-mail address and to confirm that the account was created intentionally. The account must be verified within 30 days. Use of the service is contingent upon providing a verified e-mail address. The Admin User Account created at the time of sign-up may also be used as a private user account in other Polar services. When signing in to another service for the first time, you will, depending on the service, be asked for consent to process your data in various ways and for your acceptance of the Terms of Use as a private person.

Once you have accepted this agreement by clicking the “I Accept” button, Polar will provide you with access to the Club Service as Admin User and provide Licensee with a non-exclusive, personal, non-transferable right to use the service. The activation date of the service is hereinafter referred to as “Effective Date”. Polar may provide Licensee support and maintenance services related to the Club Service for compensation, if separately agreed. This Agreement does not limit Polar’s right to provide, sell, license or otherwise market the Club Service to third parties.

1.4 After the termination of this Agreement, Licensee’s right to use the Club Service terminates and Polar’s obligation to provide the service shall end.

1.5 This Agreement replaces all prior agreements between the Parties concerning the Club Service.

2. POLAR’S RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS

2.1 The Club Service will be activated for the use of Licensee once you have accepted these terms. The service is made available by Polar. Polar may use selected contractors to provide the service.

2.2 Polar shall have the right to monitor the use of the Club Services.

2.3 Polar shall have the right to further develop the Club Service independently and make changes to content and technical implementation, provided the level of the Club Service on whole does not decrease as compared to the level at the Effective Date. Polar shall strive to notify you/Licensee of any such changes and their effective dates as early in advance as possible.

2.4 Polar shall be responsible to Licensee for the usability of the Club Service up to the interface of the internet core network. Polar shall not be responsible or liable for Licensee’s basic IT infrastructure, such as Internet connections, iPads, their operating system versions or the proper functioning of other software.

Polar support web pages are maintained to include usage basics (Getting Started, FAQs and Tips) for the Club Service. Other training and support services shall be separately agreed to with Polar.

2.6 You can create a Club Service user account for Licensee and set the password to create Licensee’s access rights (“Access Rights”). Once you create a user account, you become the Admin User of the service and receive admin rights for the service for the term of the agreement (“Admin User”). Polar can, at any time, change the Access Rights or withdraw them, if Licensee breaches these Terms of Use.

2.7 Under this agreement, Polar acts as the data processor, storing and maintaining the data entered in the Club Service. Polar does not process this data except on instruction from the controller and according to the Terms of Use.

2.8 Polar may provide updates, upgrades, and extensions of the Club Service. Improvements to and extensions of the Club Service are subject to separate fees. Polar shall inform of such possible upgrades, delivery times, their timetables and costs separately.

2.9 Maintenance and Service Breaks

Polar may interrupt the Club Service for basic maintenance, replacement of equipment, or other maintenance that allow Polar to maintain the availability of the Club Service (the “Maintenance Break”).

All Maintenance Breaks shall be planned in advance. Licensee shall be informed of any Maintenance Breaks affecting the Club Service two (2) weeks before the break. In the event that a Maintenance Break is necessary with less lead time, Polar shall inform each Licensee in advance as soon as reasonably possible. Polar strives to arrange Maintenance Breaks so that they will have as minor an impact on the Club Service as is reasonably possible. Considering that the service is used in all time zones, Maintenance Breaks cannot be arranged at a time that will be optimal for all Users.

Polar has a right to interrupt the Club Service temporarily without advance notice in the event that such interruption is necessary for maintenance, repair, or inspection of equipment or for similar reasons on emergency basis (the “Service Break”).

Polar will inform the Admin User of such Service Breaks as early as is practically possible via email.

Maintenance of the Club Service does not include correction of error(s) that are caused by you, the Licensee, your subcontractor, third parties, Force Majeure, or other reasons beyond Polar’s reasonable control. In the event that such error is due to reasons not attributable to Polar, Polar shall inform the Admin User and may charge Licensee for examination and/or remediation of error(s) in accordance with Polar’s general price list.

2.9 Polar shall have the right to use Licensee’s name and logo in marketing and the right to make reference to the parties’ cooperation during the term of the Agreement in accordance with good manners.

Polar will provide a single Master User Access Code for each entity to whom it has granted a Master License. Depending on the agreed scope of the license, Master License may provide access to all services available on the Site or a limited number of available services.

The Master User Access Code holder shall have the right to provide Teacher Access Codes for an access to the Site to an agreed number of teachers working for the entity which has purchased a Master License from Polar.

Teacher Access Code holders shall have the right to give User Codes for an access to the Site for their personal students within the entity (school) they work with.

All access codes are personal and they may not be shared with other persons. Access code holder shall not have the right to have other persons use the Site by his/her personal access codes. Access to some services on the Site may be restricted by the scope of the applicable Master License.

Each user’s rights to access the Site (or any part of the Site) shall be subject to the relevant entity having paid a user license (Master License) from Polar. Certain optional services (such as the Activarium service) of the Site may be subject to a separate payment, and access to such optional services may be subject to payment of a separate license fee for the optional service in question. Access for all representatives of an entity to the Site (or an optional part of the Site as the case may be) shall automatically terminate when the license expires or the entity is in default of the agreed license payment. Polar also reserves the right to discontinue the access to the Site (or an optional part of the Site as the case may be) to all of the access code holders of an entity or individual access code holder in case any of these terms are violated.

Master License shall be granted and the License fee invoiced for a period of one (1) year. After the initial License period of one (1) year, the License period shall be automatically renewed and Master License fees invoiced for consecutive one (1) year periods unless the License submission be cancelled for a minimum of one (1) month before the termination of the running one (1) year Master License period.

Polar shall not return any paid License fees even if the License holder would not use the Site or if the License holder ceases to use the Site for any reason or provides a termination notice at any time during the running License period.

Liability for the use of the Site by students

The entity (school) which has purchased the Master License from Polar shall be responsible for use of the Site (or limited number of services on the Site as the case may be) of its students in accordance with these terms and applicable law.
