Privacy Policy

This privacy policy, effective April 23, 2018, applies to all mobile apps and websites created by Pathym Corp., a federally incorporated Canadian corporation.


If you choose to create a Root & Branch account, we collect your name and email address for the purpose of providing this service. Otherwise, we do not collect any personally identifiable information about you. We do not knowingly contact or collect personal information from children under 13.


We may collect and share anonymous location data. If you provide your consent on your first use of the service, we and our partners may collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your computer or device. This location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used only to provide and improve our service.

Bike Maps

The location paths of your tracked rides are stored locally on your device and cannot be accessed by us.

Root & Branch

If you choose to use the ‘Synced’ or ‘Synced + Safe’ hike tracking feature, the location path of your hike will be saved on our server. Access to your hike location path is restricted to you or anybody you choose to share it with, and is not publicly accessible. If you use the ‘Personal’ hike tracking feature, the location paths of your tracked hikes are stored locally on your device and cannot be accessed by us.


Analytics providers access data on our behalf. Analytics companies may access anonymous data (such as your IP address or device ID) to help us understand how our services are used. They use this data solely on our behalf. They do not share it except in aggregate form; no data is shared as to any individual user. We retain analytics data for 14 months. More details on on our analytics provider’s use of data can be obtained by viewing their privacy policy. Additionaly, the mapping service we use collects anonymous telemetry data to improve the maps. You can opt out from all analytics data collection on the settings screen of the app.


Pathym reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time. Please review it occasionally. If we make changes to this Privacy Policy, the updated Privacy Policy will be posted in a timely manner and, if we make material changes, we will provide a prominent notice. If you object to any of the changes to this Privacy Policy, you should stop using the app and delete your account.
