Why does Engage have trip data?

Engage works to process and display your fitness activity data. Each fitness activity is called a trip. Engage uses trip data to maintain a record of your fitness activities. This information allows Engage to provide performance metrics and overview statistics.

Where does trip data come from?

Recon's heads-up devices record trip data in real-time. Your trip data then uploads onto Engage. The service processes your trip data for the most accurate results.

  • Measurement units
  • Privacy settings
    • Trip privacy

Data Security

Engage uses industry standard security protocols (including encryption) to protect the security of data. SSL(Secure Sockets Layer) protocol protects the data transmitted to or from Engage.

Privacy Settings

Select appropriate preferences on your account to manage the way Engage discloses your data.

Select a default setting - either Public or Friends Only - for the privacy of your trip data. Once selected, this privacy applies to all new trips. The Public setting allows the public to view trip data without logging on to Engage. The Friends Only setting only allows friends logged on to Engage to view your trip data. As an Engage user, you can override the default setting and designate a trip as Private. The Private setting only allows you to view the trip data.

You can link your Engage account to any third-party services. Linking your account allows you to share data between Engage and third-party services. Engage does not share your data with third-party services unless you create a link to the service.

Data Retention

Manually remove your trip from your Engage account. When you remove a trip, it removes all related data and media (for example photos/videos, comments, cheers). However, certain anonymized information remains on Engage for internal Recon use. Recon uses the remaining anonymized data for administrative purposes.

Recon keeps your Engage profile information for as long as your Engage account stays active. Once you permanently delete your Engage account, it is irreversible. This deletion removes all data associated with the account, except for anonymized information retained by the Engage internal use by Recon.
