It follows the principle of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that any information and communication relating to the processing of personal data should be easily accessible and easy to understand as well as formulated in clear and plain language.

Your privacy is very important to us. Please read below to see how Vincov handles information. Before you get to the details, here are a few of our fundamental privacy principles:

  • We aggregate and de-identify certain information about our members to use for business purposes.
  • We give you several ways to control the privacy of your personal information and are continuously working to enhance the privacy options available to you.

Vincov respects your privacy and shares your concern about the security of information you may submit to Vincov websites and the related mobile applications and services (collectively, the “Services”). Our privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) explains the information we collect, how we use and share it, how to manage your privacy settings and your rights in connection with the Services.

If you are a resident of the European Union (“EU”), Vincov. is the controller of your personal data for the purposes of EU data protection law.

This policy was written in English. To the extent a translated version conflicts with the English version, the English version controls. Unless indicated otherwise, this Privacy Policy does not apply to third-party products or services or the practices of companies that we do not own or control, including other companies you might interact with on or through the Services.

We Collect, Use, Share and Otherwise Process Information

Vincov relies on a number of legal bases to collect, use, share, and otherwise process the information we have about you for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, including:

  • Where you have consented to the processing, which you can revoke at any time.
  • Where necessary to comply with a legal obligation, a court order, or to exercise and defend legal claims;
  • To protect your vital interests, or those of others, such as in the case of emergencies;
  • Where you have made the information public;
  • Where necessary in the public interest; and
  • Where necessary for the purposes of Vincov or a third party’s legitimate interests, such as those of visitors, members or partners.


Information We Collect

Vincov collects information about you, including information that directly or indirectly identifies you, if you or your other members choose to share it with us. We receive information in a few different ways, including when you track, complete or upload activities using the Services. We also collects information about how you use the Services. There are also several opportunities for you to share information about yourself and your activities with Vincov. For example:

  • We collect basic account information such as your name, email address, date of birth, gender, username and password that helps secure and provide you with access to our Services.
  • When you make a payment, you may provide payment information such as your payment card or other payment details. We use PayPal compliant third-party payment services and we do not store your credit card information.
  • We collect information from your browser, computer, or mobile device, which provide us with technical information when you access or use the Services. This technical information includes device and network information, cookies, log files and analytics information.

Cookies and Similar Technologies

When you visit the Services, a cookie will be stored on your computer. Generally, cookies and similar technologies work by assigning to your browser or device a unique number that has no meaning outside of Vincov. We uses these technologies to personalize your experience and to assist in delivering content specific to your interests. Additionally, after you’ve entered your member ID and password during a session on the Services, Vincov saves that information so you don’t have to re-enter it repeatedly during that session.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies. To manage the collection of information through cookies or other equivalent technology you can use the settings on your browser or mobile device. We are committed to providing you choices to manage your privacy and sharing. However, Vincov does not recognize or respond to browser-initiated Do Not Track signals, as the internet industry has not fully developed Do Not Track standards, implementations and solutions. Not accepting cookies may make certain features of the Services unavailable to you.

Log Files

The Services use log files. Stored information includes IP addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks. This information is used to analyze trends, administer, protect and secure the Services, track member movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc., may be linked to session IDs, athlete IDs and device identifiers.

How We Use Information

Vincov uses the information we collect and receive to administer and operate the Services and as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. Your information, including your profile, username and photos.

We also use your information to analyze, develop and improve the Services. To do this, we may use third party analytics providers to gain insights into how our Services are used and to help us improve the Services. We may also use your information to market the Services, credit or accept payments, provide support related to the Services, protect members, promote safety, and communicate with you. Additionally, your information may be shared with third parties, as set forth below.

Vincov may de-identify or aggregate the content you make available in connection with the Services, in ways that do not personally identify you. Examples of such aggregated information or statistical data include information about, usage, demographics, routes and performance.

We use your information to communicate with you about the Services, send you marketing communications (where you have agreed to receive such messages), or let you know about new features or updates. We also use your information to respond to you when you contact us. Vincov will use your information to communicate with you, for example by sending you notifications.

How Information is Shared

Service Providers

We may share your information with third parties who provide services to us such as supporting and improving the Services, promoting the Services, processing payments, or fulfilling orders. These service providers will only have access to the information necessary to perform these limited functions on our behalf and are required to protect and secure your information. We may also engage service providers to collect information about your use of the Services over time on our behalf so that we or they may promote Vincov or display information that may be relevant to your interests on the Services or other websites or services.

When you visit our website, when you use our web shop, when you create an account on our website or subscribe to our newsletter, your data is therefore collected and processed within the United States. This takes place within a legal framework provided by the EU-US Privacy Shield. It protects the fundamental rights of anyone in the EU whose personal data is transferred to the United States. The Privacy Shield includes strong data protection obligations on companies receiving personal data, from the EU and provides effective protection and redress for you.


How long do we store your personal data? What are your rights and how can you exercise them?

Vincov believes in fair and transparent processing of personal data. We deem it important to inform you on how long we store your personal data as well as on your rights and on how to exercise them.


How We Protect Information

We take several measures to safeguard the collection, transmission and storage of the data we collect. Although we strive to employ reasonable protections for your information that are appropriate to its sensitivity, we do not guarantee or warrant the security of the information you share with us and we are not responsible for the theft, destruction, loss or inadvertent disclosure of your information or content. No system is 100% secure. The Services uses industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to allow for the encryption of personal information and credit card numbers. Vincov engages a company that is an industry leader in online security and Services verification to strengthen the security of our Services. The Services are registered with site identification authorities so that your browser can confirm Vincov identity before any personally identifiable information is sent. In addition, our secure servers protect this information using advanced firewall technology.

To help ensure that these measures are effective in preventing unauthorized access to your private information, you should be aware of the security features available to you through your browser. You should use a security-enabled browser to submit your credit card information and other personal information at the Services. Please note that if you do not use a SSL-capable browser, you are at risk for having data intercepted.

Most browsers have the ability to notify you if you change between secure and insecure communications, receive invalid services identification information for the Services you are communicating with, or send information over an unsecured connection. We recommends that you enable these browser functions to help ensure that your communications are secure. You can also monitor the URL of the services you are visiting (secure URLs begin with https:// rather than http://), along with the security symbol of your browser to help identify when you are communicating with a secure server. You can also view the details of the security certificate of the services to which you are connected. Please check the validity of any Services you connect to using secure communications.


While we continue to work hard to protect your personal information, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure, and we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. Transmitting personal information is done at your own risk.
