Reporting a Violation or Infringement of Your Intellectual Property Rights on Strava

We have a process in place for athletes to submit a claim of trademark or copyright infringement. Refer to the instructions below to submit a claim, and our support team will be able to assist you.

Please note that we can only accept copyright and infringement requests from the rights holder. If you are concerned that material on Strava infringes on someone else’s copyright, please contact the rights holder or their legal representative.

When to Use This Form

This form can be used to submit the following:

  • Claims of infringement that appear anywhere within the Strava platform.
  • Club ownership transfer requests.

How to Submit an Intellectual Property Complaint

    1. Open this form and log into your Strava account when prompted.
    2. Complete all required fields (more on what’s required can be found below).
    3. Click Submit.

What is Required

As described in our terms of service, the claim should include the following components:

    • A physical or electronic signature of the IP rights owner or the person acting on behalf of the owner.
    • A description of the copyrighted work or trademark being infringed.
    • A link, photo, or video that illustrates where and what on Strava is infringing on the work or trademark.
    • Your name, address, phone number, and email address.

Club Ownership Requests

This form can be used to report infringement claims related to clubs or club ownership transfer requests. In addition to the above, we ask that you describe your situation in the description field, including any relevant details, such as the link to the club, your relationship with the current owner, and a link to the Strava profile that you wish to be listed as the owner if we are able to make that change. In some cases, we may only be able to delete the club in question.

Please note that you will be requested to upload documents confirming the registration of trademarked assets used in the club in question in order to submit your request. These should be the documents received by the applying party, approved and signed by the authorizing government agency in your region, such as the US Patent and Trademark office. We're looking for the official documents, which may have raised seals or watermarks from that agency, and not the publicly available versions such as on the USPTO database online. Most likely, these documents would be stored with the legal firm that filed for trademark registration originally.
