This Privacy Statement applies to information that we (Stride Group, Inc., a Delaware C Corporation) collect from users of the website at strideapp.co or its subsidiary websites (each a “site”) and/or the Stride app as implemented on mobile devices (the “App”).
We collect, use, and share information from and about you in order to provide the Stride service (the “Service”) and to operate our business.
What information does Stride collect?
We collect information needed to set up or maintain your account, such as your name, address, e-mail address, username, password, preferences, and billing information. We receive this information from you and we might supplement it with other information that we receive from other sources, such as directories and databases. If a user or other person asks us to invite you to participate in the Services, we collect your contact information so that we can connect with you to offer the opportunity to participate in the Service.
We collect information about the device(s) you use to access a site or the App, how you use the Service, and your online activities over time and across different websites(s) including your IP address, device type, browser version, the pages you view, the searches you make, and your operating system.
We collect information that you enter into the App or a site, such as reports info (name, 1-on-1 schedule, goals) message information to and from you using the App or a site, preferences and feedback.
We collect location information provided by your IP address, mobile device, or other means.
All or part of the Service might allow signup and/or participation through third-party services like Facebook. Where you sign up or participate through such a third-party service, we collect the information that the third-party service discloses at the time of your signup, agreement, or linking to the third-party service.
How does Stride use the information that it collects?
We use the information:
To provide Service to you;
To maintain and update the Service and to install and configure changes and/or updates to Service, (including, without limitation, the software that makes up the site(s) or the App);
To communicate with you about your account or the Service;
To troubleshoot the Service;
To evaluate use of the Service;
To perform research, including, but not limited to, market research;
To improve the Service;
To prevent and detect fraud or misuse of the Service;
For any use that’s required by law, including, but not limited to, by subpoenas or court orders; and
To provide offers for products or services that might interest you, including, but not limited to, offers based on your previous online activities and offers based on your location.
In addition to the above uses, we may use information for any purpose or share it with anyone if we anonymize it so that it no longer identifies you.
With whom does Stride share information?
We share information:
With other users of the Service so that you and they can participate in the Service;
With third parties as part of our delivery of the Service;
With third parties who help us to run our business, such as service providers;
With third parties with whom we do joint marketing; and
As and if required to comply with legal requests or to protect your rights or the rights of others.
If you use the Service through, or link the Service to, a third-party service (like Facebook), we share your information with the third-party service and users of the third-party service in order to provide the Service. If the announcements, notices, or disclaimers that appear as a part of your signup or linking to the third-party service say that there’s sharing beyond this, we may also share in the ways described in those announcements, notices, or disclaimers.
If we ever sold or otherwise transferred our business, we would transfer the information that we had collected to the buyer or transferee so that it could operate the business.
We may also share your information with anyone if we anonymize it so that it no longer identifies you.
What choices do I have about how my information is used and shared?
We try to limit the collection, use, and sharing of information to just that information that we need for the purposes identified in this Privacy Statement. Accordingly, there’s not much use or sharing that we can restrict without the solution being to just discontinue the use of the Service. You can ask us to not use or share certain information, or to refrain from marketing to you, by contacting us at email@example.com. We’ll tell you about your options.
How does Stride communicate with me?
We may contact you about goods or services that might be of interest to you, about your account, or the Service using postal mail, telephone calls, e-mail, through the App, text messages, or other electronic messages using any electronic address you have provided to us.
You can manage your communication preferences by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do I have different rights if I’m a resident of California?
Your California Privacy Rights: If you’re a California resident, California privacy law requires that we give you specific disclosures about our privacy practices, including telling you about the information we share with other third parties for their marketing purposes. You can request this information by contacting us at email@example.com.
How does Stride safeguard my information?
We use technical, administrative, and physical safeguards designed to help protect your information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, destruction, or theft.
If we transfer your information to a third-party service provider, we will contractually require any such service provider to maintain similar technical, physical and administrative safeguards.
How long does Stride keep my information?
We keep the information that we collect until we no longer need the information in order to provide the Service to you, operate our business, enable us to communicate with you, or satisfy our legal or contractual obligations. After that, we destroy the information or anonymize it.
Some cookies exist only during a particular session and some are persistent over multiple sessions.
You can set your web browser to reject cookies. Each browser is different, so you should check your browser’s “Help” menu to learn how to change your cookie preferences. If you reject or block cookies, the site(s) and/or the App might not function as intended.
We don’t read or respond to “do not track” settings in browsers or similar hardware or software. Although some browsers have a “do not track” setting, there’s no consensus in the industry as to what that flag means or what we’re supposed to do about it. Many or most websites and similar services ignore the “do not track” flag for this reason and, until there’s a better consensus, we’re taking that approach. If you select the “do not track” option, it will not change what information is exchanged with your computer or other device, or how that information is used.
Do any other terms or conditions affect the privacy of my information?
Yes. If you signup through, or link to, Facebook or any other third-party service, the terms of service, privacy statement, and other terms of that third-party service will apply. You should read and understand those third-party items to be sure that you understand what information third parties collect, use, and share. You should also pay attention to when those third-party items change. We don’t have any control over the way in which third-party service providers like Facebook collect, use, and share your information.
How are changes to this Privacy Statement Handled?
If we change this Privacy Statement, we’ll post the revised Privacy Statement on the privacy portion of our website at www.strideapp.co. We’ll post the revised Privacy Statement a reasonable amount of time ahead of when it will become effective. If you don’t want to continue under the revised Privacy Statement, you can terminate the Service and the revised Privacy Statement won’t apply. If you continue with the Service and don’t terminate, the new Privacy Statement will apply to you.
Please note that the privacy practices of third-party service providers like Facebook change over time. If you signed up for the Service through one of those services or linked your use of the Service to the services of one or more of those third-party service providers, you should check their privacy statements and terms of service frequently so that you’re aware of any changes.
