Privacy policy

Last updated June 14, 2022

Stroll Network  (“Stroll”, “Us”, “We”, “Our”) is a meeting platform that helps users make the most of their time with trusted contacts. Stroll is operated by <Company name> a company organized under the laws of Canada, headquartered at <Address>


We are committed to protecting your rights and your privacy, while allowing you to share the content you generate with the people you want. This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) explains what data We collect about you and how We store, analyze and share the data.


This Policy applies to websites, apps, events and other services We operate under the Stroll brand. For simplicity, we refer to all of these as Our “services” in this Policy. Some services may require their own unique privacy policy. If a service has its own privacy policy, then that policy—not this Policy—applies.

We collect data about you through the Stroll mobile application, which may also include smartwatch and headphone data where applicable. This Policy applies to all Personal Information whether collected online or offline. The Policy also explains your rights with regards to your data, and how to contact Us to request access, corrections, transfer, restriction, or deletion of the data We have collected about you.

Please read through it carefully. While We take careful precautions to protect your data and privacy, the goal of Stroll is to share information with others you trust. If you do not agree with this Policy, please do not use Stroll.

How We collect data

Stroll collects user information in a variety of ways:

  • Through forms you voluntarily complete as part of your enrolment.

  • Data you record or enter during a Stroll, such as audio, text, or images.

  • Sensor data from your devices such as geographic location or steps walked.

  • Cookies, tags, and identifiers We assign you so We can identify you when you use the application and persist your state within Our application or website.

  • We may use a third-party mobile analytics service to review the quality and functionality of Our mobile applications. This information is managed separately from your user information, and is intended solely for technical support and usage measurement.


What data We collect and how we use it

We collect personal information about you. This may include, but is not limited to:

  • Your name so We can identify you to others.

  • Your email address for messaging and password confirmation/recovery, as well as marketing and feature updates and legal notifications.

  • Your phone number for messaging and password confirmation/recovery.

  • A profile photo and bio so others can find you.

  • Social handles so We can identify you to others.

  • Precise location information related to a Stroll. Precise location is information that describes your location with the same or greater resolution as a latitude and longitude with three or more decimal places. We use this to measure distance walked, ensure companions are together when Strolling, and prevent fraud.

  • User content, included but not limited to audio, text notes, images, and videos, that you record during a Stroll and may refer to afterwards. We may interpret this information (for example, transcribing audio) and augment it (for example, identifying a task, contact, or URL) to enhance your record of a Stroll.

  • Health and fitness data related to the time and distance walked, which may be shared with the HealthKit API.

  • Payment information, if and when Stroll launches a paid version of its services.

  • Contacts, meaning a social graph that lists who else you know on the platform and how you’re connected to them, so you can see your contacts’ connections.

  • Post-Stroll Feedback related to topics you discussed with your companion, which We use to help recommend future companions with similar interests.

  • Customer support data generated during support requests, including communications and diagnostics, to troubleshoot problems and resolve your questions.

  • Search history: Information about searches performed in the app, such as those to find data you’ve recorded or people you’ve gone on a Stroll with, so We can learn how to improve the networking features of Stroll.

  • Identifiers: Information to identify your account, such as a screen name, handle, account ID, assigned user ID, customer number, probabilistic identifier, or other user- or account-level ID that can be used to identify you or your account.

  • Device ID: Device-level identification numbers to verify the user account and installation and prevent fraudulent use.

  • Usage data and product interaction: We may track interactions such as app launches, taps, clicks, scrolling information, or other information about how you interact with the app to better understand usage and improve user experience.

  • Diagnostics, such as crash data or logs’ and performance data such as launch time, hang rate, energy use, or other data so We can diagnose and resolve problems.

  • We collect web analytics data when you visit Our website or download the application, including but not limited to, browser, ISP, source IP address, referring URL, entry and exit page, pages visited, time on site, timestamps, and operating system. This information helps Us understand users and streamline Our services, identify security issues, and collect broad demographic data about Our users and visitors.

  • We may receive information from others related to their interactions with you, including the completion of a Stroll, the establishment of a connection in a social graph, and metadata such as images, audio, or text notes you have mutually agreed to share. This information may appear on their profile page, and in the news feeds of other users, according to sharing permissions.


We may create anonymized data (by removing personally identifiable information such as contact details) that We use for internal purposes such as analytics, demographics, behavioral analysis, and service improvement that help Us improve the Stroll platform.


We do not attempt to tie the data We collect to other data sets that would enable it to be linked to your identity. The data We collect is used solely on the Stroll platform (mobile and cloud) to identify you and share the contents of meetings with people who have your permission to access it.


You are under no obligation to provide any Personal Information to Us at any time. However, if you choose to withhold some Personal Information, We may be unable to provide you with certain services.

Our legal bases

We rely 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 Policy, including:

  • To provide the Services and fulfill Our obligations pursuant to the Terms of Service. For example, We cannot provide the Services unless We collect and use your location information, or store metadata collected, during a Stroll.

  • Where you have consented to the processing. If you choose to provide Us with information that may be considered “special” or “sensitive” in certain jurisdictions, you’re consenting to Our processing of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. You may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting Us at the address provided on Our website.

  • 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 necessary for the purposes of Stroll’s, or a third party’s, legitimate interests, such as Our interests in protecting Our members, Our partners’ interests in collaborating with Our members, and Our commercial interests in ensuring the sustainability of the Services.

  • Push notifications on your mobile device, such as reminders and messages.

  • Newsletters regarding features, services, and offers relevant to your use of Stroll. 

  • In-app messaging from Stroll’s administration team.


By sharing your contact information with Us, you consent to Us communicating with you directly, including, but not limited to, via e-mail. You can opt out of communications with Us at any time; however, this may result in reduced functionality.


Data collection related to children

Stroll is designed for users over 14 years of age. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 14. If We discover that a child under 14 has provided Us with personal information, We will immediately delete the account and its associated data from Our servers. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided Us with personal information, please contact Us immediately.


When we may disclose your personal information

Stroll’s employees are restricted in their access and use of your data on a role-based basis, and may only use this information in order to troubleshoot the application or during correspondences with you. However, We may be required to disclose your Personal Information if:

  • You ask Us to do so.

  • We are legally required to do so by a legal authority as part of an investigation.

  • If We believe, in good faith, that such disclosure is necessary to protect or defend Our rights or the rights of others, to assist in an investigation, or to prevent illegal activity.

  • To forward Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) notifications, which will be forwarded as submitted to Us without any deletions.

  • To enforce Our agreements with you.

  • To investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations.

  • To protect the security or integrity of Our Services (such as by sharing with companies facing similar threats.)

  • To exercise or protect the rights and safety of the Stroll platform, Our users, staff, and partners.


Should We disclose personal information, We will endeavor to release the minimum data required to comply with the law or your request. When We share Personal Information with a third party, We comply with relevant regional laws such as GDPR, the Privacy Shield Framework, and CCPA.


Where We store and how We secure your information

All data related to the Stroll platform is stored in <the Microsoft Azure data centers located in>. We follow reasonable electronic and physical processes to protect your data and personal information. These include role-based authorization, employee confidentiality agreements, multiple security and antivirus systems, and multi-factor authentication systems. However, security threats are constantly evolving, and no organization can fully eliminate the security risks associated with an online service. If Your intended use of Stroll requires stronger security measures, please do not use the Service.

Your rights

In addition to an expectation of privacy and confidentiality, You have the right to:

  • Access Your information.

  • Amend or alter Your information.

  • Delete Your account from the platform, with or without the metadata You’ve captured on Strolls with companions.

Changes to this policy

We may update this Policy from time to time. If We make any material changes to this Policy, you will be notified via one of the communications methods We have with you, including email, an in-app pop-up, or an item in your news feed. You will have to accept the new Policy to continue using the platform at that time. We may correct minor mistakes, such as URLs or typographical errors, without such notification provided that they do not materially alter the Policy.


Change of Control or Sale

We may share your personal data as part of a sale, merger or change in control, or in preparation for any of these events.
