TOOLS to Manage What Personal Data We Collect
When using our Platform we also provide in-time notice or obtain consent for certain practices. For example, we will obtain consent to use your location or send push notifications. We may obtain this consent through the Platform or using the standard permissions available on your device.
In many cases, your web browser or mobile device platform will provide additional tools to allow you to control when your device collects or shares particular categories of personal data. For example, your mobile device or web browser may offer tools to allow you to manage cookie usage or location sharing. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with and use the tools available on your devices.
WHY and HOW Do We Use Your Personal Data?
We use your personal data in the following ways:
To Provide the Features of the Platform and Services You Request
When you use our Platform, we will use your personal data to provide the requested product or service. For example, if you make a purchase on Nike.com or participate in an event or promotion, we will use the contact information you give us to communicate with you about the purchase, event or promotion. If you contact our consumer services, we will use information about you, such as delivery or payment information, or the product you have purchased to help you resolve a problem or question.
If you use our Platform to track your fitness activity or physical characteristics, we will collect this personal data and store it so that you can review it in the Platform. Your fitness activity data may include data you enter about your activity or data collected by your device during your activity such as location data and movement data. We may use this activity data to calculate further information about your activity, such as distance run, or calories burned, so that the calculated information can be provided to you as part of the functionality of the Platform.
In many cases, to use particular features within our Platform you may need to provide Nike with additional data or additional consent to use particular data in a certain way. For example, to use the heart rate tracking features of our Platform, you may need to connect to a heart rate monitoring device. Similarly, to share content on social media, you may be required to provide your social media account credentials to sign in.
To Communicate Information about our Products, Services, Events and for Other Promotional Purposes
When you consent, we will send you marketing communications and news concerning Nike’s products, services, events and other promotions that may be of interest to you. You can opt-out at any time after you have given your consent.
If you are an existing customer of Nike (for example, if you have placed an order with us), we may use the contact details you provided to send you marketing communications about similar Nike products or services where permitted by applicable law (unless you have opted-out). In other cases, we ask for your consent to send you marketing information.
Except for Workout Info (described below), we may use the information that you provide to us and information from other Nike products or services - such as your use of Nike’s Platform, your visits to or purchases made in Nike stores, your participation in Nike events and contests - to personalize communications on products and services that may be interesting for you. In doing so, we may combine the information you provide to us with information that we create about your online activity, including internal insights and analysis. Where required by applicable law, we will obtain your consent to conduct these activities.
If you sign-in to your Nike account using different devices, we may associate you across the different devices you use to browse our Platform. We may use information collected across these devices to personalize communications on our products and services.
To Operate, Improve and Maintain our Business, Products and Services
We use the personal data you provide to us to operate our business. For example, when you make a purchase, we use that information for accounting, audits and other internal functions. We may use personal data about how you use our products and services to enhance your user experience and to help us diagnose technical and service problems and administer our Platform.
To Protect Our or Others' Rights, Property or Safety
For General Research and Analysis Purposes
We use data about how our visitors use our Platform and services to understand customer behavior or preferences. For example, we may use information about how visitors to Nike.com search for and find products to better understand the best ways to organize and present product offerings in our storefront.
Use (Processing) of Workout Info
As discussed above, Nike collects data about your fitness activity or your physical characteristics, together, “Workout Info”, to provide services on our Platform. Nike products and devices also allow you to connect to third party devices that capture additional fitness activity information. Because of the personal nature of this data, we strive to provide you with clear information about how Workout Info will be used. As this data may be considered sensitive in certain jurisdictions, we take appropriate measures in protecting and using this data and, where required by applicable law or under Nike’s internal policies, will obtain your consent for use of your Workout Info.

If you choose to link your Nike account with a membership account at a Nike Partner (“Account Linking”), Nike will obtain your consent to link and use personal data obtained from Account Linking, including your purchases and returns. We use this personal data to build the Partner Orders page shown in your Nike account and give you access to selected benefits, such as access to exclusive Nike products, rewards and experiences, when you shop with our Partners.

This data collection takes place both on our Platform and on third-party websites and apps that participate in these ad services.

Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you may not have access to many features that make our Platform more efficient and some of our services will not function properly. There are also general resources for opting out of interest-based advertising available on the website of the Digital Advertising Alliance.
