Whilst I take a swipe at STRAVA from time-to-time, and whilst many of you bemoan STRAVA’s perceived lack of innovation for paying summit members, I hope we can all applaud STRAVA for their newly announced clarity on this issue.
If you look at the bullet-pointed summary, below, you will see that STRAVA has ‘spun’ some of the wording a little bit but it is clear…even if you don’t like it.
Did they have to do it? Sure, it looks like California law has made them clarify what they do with our data. But that’s a good thing and the out-take of the law looks good from an international perspective and it’s great that STRAVA is applying it worldwide – BTW it’s the California Consumer Privacy Act, 2018.
