The European Union’s Digital Services Act (DSA) is a law that sets out requirements for certain online services, especially in relation to content and transparency. Its key goals are to:
- Better protect consumers and their fundamental rights online
- Establish a powerful transparency and a clear accountability framework for online platforms
- Foster innovation, growth, and competitiveness within the European Union’s single market
Strava supports the DSA’s objectives of protecting consumers and their fundamental rights, as well as transparency and accountability. We are committed to implementing the law in accordance with these objectives and our commitments to our users.
For online services that have more than 45 million “average monthly active recipients of the service” in the European Union, the DSA establishes a heightened set of requirements.
To determine which online services are subject to those heightened requirements, the DSA sets out a methodology to calculate the average monthly active recipients of the service in the European Union.
Using this methodology, Strava confirms that its average monthly active recipients of the service in the European Union are well below the 45 million user threshold.
We will continue to monitor this number and will update it in six months in accordance with the law.
