When You Make a Garmin Account

Garmin stores information such as your name, email address, and password so you can sign in. It also helps us verify your account if you call customer support.

When You Buy Products or Subscriptions

When you buy products or subscriptions from Garmin, we ask for information such as your name, address, and phone number so we can get your order processed and shipped to you.

We have third parties verify your address and process your payment information, but Garmin does not store your payment card details. We only use this information to help us fulfill your orders.

When You Sync Products

When you sync your device, we collect data such as your IP address, sync time and date, and battery level to help identify and resolve errors or syncing issues and to provide better customer support.

When You Contact Garmin

We know you might want to stay off the grid, but we may collect things such as your contact, device, or subscription information during support calls to ensure that you get the help you need.

When You Use Location Features

Sometimes we need to collect your device’s location. That makes it a lot easier to tell you about things such as weather in your area, nearby traffic, and even movie prices near you.

When You Use Auto Navigation

With your consent, Garmin collects information that includes location, direction, and speed to help with features such as parking and traffic.

Why does Garmin ask for your personal data?

From providing product support to offering clear directions to your destination, any information we ask you for is used to improve your experience with Garmin.

To Keep You Informed

When we have something important to tell you about your products, apps, subscriptions, or account — such as vital safety information, app updates, new products or deals, and updates to our privacy policy — we use collected contact information to reach you.

To Improve Our Sites and Apps

When you visit our sites or use our apps, we collect information — such as your IP address, location, times that you visit, and more — to let us know how people navigate our sites and apps and how we can improve them.

To Give You Information You Might Actually Find Interesting

We use things such as cookies, pixel tags, and similar tools to help us provide better, more relevant content on our sites. So if you and everyone else are coming to for awesome fitness devices, we’ll know to keep making them.

We also use these tools to see how effective our ads are and to identify any problems that we need to fix. All in all, we just want to give you websites worth browsing.

Does Garmin sell your personal data?

No! We don’t sell your personal data to anyone. And we only share your personal data with others in specific situations.
