2. What Information We Collect

We use Google Analytics to track basic usage and website traffic statistics. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can opt out of Google Analytics tracking at any time. To prevent Google Analytics from tracking you, please refer to the Addendum at the bottom of this page.

Swim.it also collects and retains information you voluntarily submit to us. It is up to you whether to submit information to us, and how much information to provide. If you express interest in a product or submit a request, we may ask for identifying information such as your name, email address, or mailing address and may retain that information. We may ask for additional personal information when you provide feedback or comments, or otherwise communicate with us.

3. How We Use the Information We Collect

We only use information that was voluntarily provided to us in order to communicate with you and respond to your requests or feedback. We never sell your personal information to advertisers, other third parties or anyone else.

4. Legal Requirements for Disclosure of Your Information

While Swim.it aims to provide the highest level of protection for your information, we may disclose personally identifiable information about you to third parties in limited circumstances, including: (1) with your consent; or (2) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order.

If we are required by law to disclose the information that you have submitted, we will attempt to provide you with prior notice (unless we are prohibited by law) that a request for your information has been made in order to give you an opportunity to object to the disclosure. We will attempt to provide this notice by email, if you have given us an email address, or by postal mail if you have entered a postal address. If you do not challenge the disclosure request, we may be legally required to turn over your information.

In addition, we will independently object to requests for access to information about users of our site that we believe to be improper.

5. Changes to the Swim.it Privacy Policy

We may make small, inconsequential changes to this policy with or without notice to you, so we encourage you to review our policy periodically. Any major changes to this policy will be noted here and to anyone who submits a request to support@swim.it
