Introduction

Welcome to Love to Ride, lovetoride.net and the Love to Ride app are owned and operated by Love to Ride Ltd. By visiting our website or using our app to access the information, resources, services and tools we provide, you understand and agree to accept and adhere to the terms and conditions below, hereafter referred to as the 'User Agreement', and those stated in our Privacy Policy.

We care about your privacy

We will not give your contact details to any third parties. However, project partners (usually Government authorities) may on occasion be able to access your personal data for the purpose of supporting you with problems or liaising with you about challenges you're involved with. This only occurs with partners that are under contract and working with us collaboratively on project delivery. Any communication from our partners to you will be via email from the Love to Ride website. Love to Ride and its partners follow data minimisation practices. 

The Love to Ride app has data capture capabilities which can, if configured by the user, include geolocation data. Only you can see your individual trip data and after a period of 30 days all data relating to other non-bike trips are deleted. We reserve the right to aggregate (anonymise) the data for use in reports and visualisations that help us understand how people bike around regions. 

We understand how important privacy is, which is why we've created a separate Privacy Policy in order to explain in detail how we collect, manage, secure, and store your private information. To read our privacy policy in its entirety, click here.

You must be aged 13 or over to use lovetoride.net

Love to Ride is only for people who are at least 13 years old. We're sorry but it's a legal thing and we're not yet geared up to protect younger folks.

We expect you to play nicely

Love to Ride is a social platform focused on encouraging more people to cycle so it's important that people 'play nicely'. We won't tolerate abusive comments, content or behaviour and reserve the right to remove/edit/respond to content or remove the account of anyone who is not playing nicely with other Love to Ride users, or who posts offending, inappropriate, inaccurate or infringing content.

Challenges and prizes

Online events and competitions (often referred to as ‘challenges’) will be run on the website and app. 

The majority of prizes are only available to users located in regions sponsored by a local authority or funding entity, or where their employer has taken out a Love to Ride for Business plan.

In some cases you will automatically be entered into an event if you interact with the website or app during a particular competition period. This means that you may be entered into any prize draws and become eligible to win. By interacting with the site you agree to the terms and conditions of these specific challenges.

Love to Ride and its project partners are not liable in any way for any damages, expenses, misinformation, liability or injury arising out of or in any way connected with any prizes offered. It cannot accept any responsibility for any damage, loss or injury suffered as a result of accepting or experiencing any prize.

Because Love to Ride awards hundreds (sometimes thousands) of prizes in any given year we have a separate set of terms and conditions that govern our prize draws. To read our prize terms and conditions in their entirety, click here.
