If you would like to request that we delete all personal information together with the deletion of your account, please contact us at support@swimmers.co.

We will maintain the security of your personal information and protect it from misuse, interference and loss and against unauthorized collection, copying, access, modification or disclosure. We will destroy any personal information  we hold about you which is no longer required under the terms of this Notice.  Where you have chosen a password to access the Service, you are responsible for keeping your password confidential. Do not share your password with anyone.

Due to the nature of the internet, we do not provide any guarantee or warranty regarding the security of your personal information during transmission to or storage by us and you acknowledge that you disclose your personal information to us at your own risk. Please contact us immediately if you become aware or have reason to believe there has been any unauthorized use of your personal information in connection with the Service.

The personal information you provide to us may be transferred to and stored with a cloud service provider with servers that are located in various jurisdictions. Some of these countries may not have the same or substantially similar privacy laws than those of your home jurisdiction. In those circumstances, Swimmers will ensure that recipients in those countries will provide you with a standard of protection that is at least comparable to the protection of your home jurisdiction.

  1. Risks Associated with Electronic Communications and the Storing of Your Personal Information Electronically

We understand the importance of protecting your personal information and take our security obligations seriously. We take a number of steps to safeguard the privacy and security of your personal information. However, any device or application connected to the Internet is susceptible to a security breach, despite the level of administrative, technical, and physical safeguards employed. This means that there is a risk that unauthorized persons may be able to access and read your personal information. By using the Services, you agree that you have read, understand, and accept this risk.

  1. Cookie Policy

Some of the information that we collect will not personally identify you but will instead track your use of the Service so that we can better understand how the Service is used by end users and in turn enhance and improve your experience in using the Service. This information can be obtained through the use of cookies. Cookies are a small data file transferred to your device that recognises and identifies your device and allows your device to 'remember' information from the App for future use.

  1. Other Apps

The App may have links to other apps or websites. We are not responsible for the security or privacy of any information collected by such apps or websites and, while we do not permit those apps or websites to track your use of the Service, we are unable to control whether such tracking mechanisms are implemented by those apps or websites. You should exercise caution and review the privacy statements applicable to the third-party websites and services you use. The use of online tracking mechanism by those third-party websites and services is subject to those third parties' own privacy policies, and not this Notice.
