If you are not part of a team, your name will be displayed to challenge participants on the individual leader board.

Why we ask for your activity data and purpose of data collection:
TBayOntheMove.ca is a website of the Health Promotion Division of the the Thunder Bay District Health Unit (TBDHU). Data entered on the website will be used by the TBDHU to inform public health programming, provide participant feedback during challenges, as well as, evaluate and report on public health programming.
What information do we collect?
TBayOntheMove.ca collects information provided by users participating in health promotion challenges run by the TBDHU. Contact information (e.g., username, name, and email address) will be collected during account set up. Additional information provided by the user will be stored (e.g., steps, distance, time) until the end of a health promotion challenge. Challenges may vary in length and therefore data may be stored on the website for varying lengths of time depending on the nature of the challenge. Any data extracted for reporting purposes will be stored for 7 years as per the TBDHU’s data retention policy.
How will we use your information?
Steps, distance and time data collected will be anonymously displayed on TBayOntheMove.ca and may be downloaded by the TBDHU Healthy Living team for program planning and evaluation. Challenge data (e.g., steps, distance, time) will be aggregated with other user’s data to evaluate and inform public health programming. Contact information (e.g., name and email address) will be used to reach participants regarding prizes for participation in health promotion challenges. Additionally, TBDHU staff may use your contact information to suggest participating in future challenges and request your participation in challenge evaluations (i.e., surveys).
Risks and benefits to participants
If you have any concerns about increasing your physical activity levels, please consult with your health care provider prior to participating in the challenges. Benefits to participants may include improved health as a result of increased physical activity. Participants will be entered into draws to win prizes throughout a challenge. (Please note that winners will be selected at random. Only residents of Thunder Bay and District areas are eligible to win prizes.)
