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.

How does Strava Community Hub use cookies?

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 Community features which 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. They expire on a set expiration date, or when they are deleted manually. To learn more about how you can delete cookies manually, read the section below entitled “Managing and refusing the use of cookies.”

We classify the cookies into the four broad categories described below.

Tracking, targeting and sharing

These cookies remember that you've visited a website, a particular web page, and/or track your activities on the site. This information is sometimes shared with third party advertisers for serving targeted online advertising or other personalized content.

Cookies used to track visitor activity on an individual basis can be used third party business partners to serve personalized content, and/or later aggregated and used to analyze website traffic and trends. 

 

Managing and refusing the use of cookies

When you first visit our site, you will see a banner asking whether you would like to accept the use of cookies. By clicking “Accept,” you agree to the use of all cookies as described here, including Non-Essential Third-Party Cookies.

We will only use Non-Essential Third-Party Cookies if you click “Accept” on the cookies banner, or in your cookies preferences. 

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.

In some cases, you can manage third-party cookies on a cookie-by-cookie basis. Learn how to manage your Google ads personalization setting, your Google Analytics setting, and your Branch cookies setting
