Xbox 360 exercise information: For Xbox 360, you can decide whether to share exercise stats, which include fitness scores for calorie burn, time played, physical intensity of movement, and feedback from physical activity in Kinect games and apps.

You can, however, decide two things: who can see your information and whether your Xbox 360 exercise information is stored online or offline.
