What is a cookie?
A cookie is a piece of data that may be stored in the browser you use to access Strava, which enables features and functionality. It allows our website to “remember” your activity or preferences over a length of time or during a particular session. If you're signed in to Strava, cookies allow us to show you the right information and personalize your experience.
Some of the cookies we use have been developed and deployed to facilitate our provision of the service. These are known as first-party cookies. We also utilize third-party cookies, which are built by our third-party vendors and employed on our website and are explained further below.
We use session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are temporary cookies that are not stored in your browser beyond the session in question. They are used for authentication and security purposes and to ensure the effective and necessary functioning of the Strava features that you are utilizing. We may also use a session cookie to remember your preferences when viewing the site. These session cookies are erased when you exit your browser.
Persistent cookies are those placed on your browser for a pre-determined length of time when you visit this site.
We also permit the setting of third-party cookies on our website. These assist us in measuring and understanding how our products are used and how they can be optimized. We may also receive other analytics information from these third parties.
Some of these cookies are advertising cookies, which we employ to serve relevant ads to users who have already visited our website. We use the following cookies for advertising purposes: Google AdWords, Branch, Facebook, and Twitter.
Other cookies are used to assess performance and analytics or to perform business research. We use the following cookies for performance, analytics, and research purposes: Google Analytics, Segment, and Branch.
Most browsers allow you to choose whether you wish to accept cookies. Different browsers make different controls available to you and so we provide links below to popular browser instructions on how you can do this. Generally, your browser will offer you the choice to accept, refuse or delete all cookies, or third-party cookies on a website, or those from specific websites. However, if you restrict our capability to set cookies, you may limit the full functionality of Strava, which will make some of our services and features unavailable to you.
Do Not Track (DNT)
We may not recognize Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) signals from your web browsers or device. This is because there is not yet a universally accepted standard on how to interpret and respond to DNT signals, which often conflict with other settings. If and when a standard is established, we will re-examine how we can appropriately respond to DNT signals.
Changes to this Policy
This policy may change from time to time, so it should be reviewed frequently for the most up-to-date cookie information. We will notify you of any changes by updates to this page.
