We may store such information ourselves, or it may be included in databases owned and maintained by our affiliates, agents, or service providers. We may use such information and pool it with additional information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to the Services, the number of visitors to each page of the Services, and the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers. Other Information may be collected in the following ways:

  • Log Data: When you use the Services, we automatically receive and record certain information from your computer, mobile phone, tablet, or other devices. This may include data such as your IP address, the pages you visit or features you use within the Services, the date and time of your activities on the Services, the URLs from the websites you visit before and after navigating to the Services, your software and hardware attributes (including operating system type and version, App version, device type, and device identifiers), your browser type and version, and your general geographic location derived through your IP address (e.g., your city, state, or metropolitan region).

An SDK is a section of code that we embed in our Apps to allow third parties to collect information about how users interact with the app, and a server-to-server connection enables us to exchange data with third parties when an SDK integration is not feasible or practical. The information collected by third parties using these technologies may be used for a variety of purposes, including analytics and targeted interest-based advertising, as discussed below (see the section entitled "Our Disclosure of Your Personal Data and Other Information").

We may also disclose aggregated user statistics (which also do not identify you) in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.

Once activated, it stays activated for new activities, unless you turn it off again. By activating the feature, you accept the responsibility for such activation at your own risk. If you do not want to give third parties access to your training route and data, then LIVE Tracking should not be activated.​


Third-Party Analytics and Interest-Based Advertising

Analytics: We partner with certain third parties to collect information for the purpose of engaging in analysis, auditing, research, and reporting on the Services and to understand the effectiveness of our advertising and email marketing. These third parties may use web logs or web beacons, and they may set and access cookies or use similar tracking technologies on your computer or other devices. They also may use SDKs and device identifiers, to collect information about your use of the Apps. In particular, our Services use Google Analytics, Crashalytics, and Facebook Analytics to help collect and analyze certain information for the purposes discussed above. 


Online Interest-Based Advertising: The Services also enable third parties to collect information through cookies, web beacons, and device identifiers, for use in online interest-based advertising. For example, third parties may use the fact that you visited our website or used our Apps to target online ads for Waterspeed services to you on non-Waterspeed websites or mobile apps. In addition, we or our third-party advertising networks might use information about your use of the Services to help target non-Waterspeed advertisements to you on unaffiliated websites or mobile apps based on your online activity in general. 


We and our third-party providers may use collected information to establish connections among related web browsers and devices (such as smartphones, tablets, and computers) for advertising, analytics, attribution, and reporting purposes. We may match your browsers or devices if you log into the same online service on multiple devices or if your devices share similar attributes that support an inference that they are used by the same person or household. This means that information about your activity on websites or apps on your current browser or device may be combined and used with information collected from your other browsers or devices. For example, we or our third-party providers may use this information to deliver the same ad on multiple devices, to limit the number of times you see an ad across your devices, and to help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns across devices.

You may opt-out of our third-party service providers' interest-based advertising practices and cross-device technologies in web browsers and mobile apps by following the instructions below. Please note that the opt-out will apply only to the specific browser or device from which you opt out, and therefore you will need to opt out separately on all of your browsers and devices. If you delete or reset your cookies or mobile identifiers, change browsers, or use a different device, any opt-out cookie or tool may no longer work and you will have to opt out again.


Privacy Settings, Data Retention and Deletion

We retain information for as long as reasonably necessary to deliver our Services to you or to fulfill the purposes described in this Policy. For example, we may retain your profile information and information about your sports activities for as long as you maintain your Waterspeed account. This provides you with the ability to review your activities over time, track your progress toward personal goals and challenges, and remember your past achievements and milestones.


Because our users may take extended breaks from activities and may use our Apps on various devices, we do not delete information automatically based on account inactivity or when you uninstall our Apps from one of your devices. However, we provide you with the ability to delete information associated with your account, as follows:

  • You may remove a specific activity from your account within the Apps.

  • You may delete your account, and information associated with your account, sending us an email to

International transfers of your personal data

Health Information and Apple HealthKit

We do not use information collected through the Services to infer health information that we consider sensitive, such as a user's past, present or potential future health or medical condition or treatment, including but not limited to genetic, genomic, and family medical history. We may, however, infer a user's potential interest in certain non-sensitive health and wellness categories, such as exercise and fitness activities, endurance activities, distance running, diet and weight loss, nutrition, healthy living, or physical and massage therapy. We may use this non-sensitive health and wellness information for the purpose of delivering more relevant content, services, offers, and advertising to our users.


We will not use the information gained through your use of the HealthKit framework for advertising or similar services, or sell it to advertising platforms, data brokers, or information resellers.


We will not use any data shared from Apple HealthKit for advertising purposes. For example, we request access to your phone’s geolocation data in order to log your run route, or infer certain information such as heart rate or other information about your perceived exertion, including power, cadence, height or other indicators to log. This information is not transmitted to any external service, and it is only used to track specific information through your expressed consent.
