Zwift Academy Terms & Conditions

 
 

Before you enroll in Zwift Academy (collectively, the “Academy” or “Program”), we’re obligated to ask you (the “Participant”) to read and agree to the following Terms and Conditions (“T&C”).

Eligibility

By enrolling in the Academy you represent that you are a non-professional female cyclist aged 18 years or older in good general health. The Academy reserves the right to verify the eligibility of Participants at any time during the Program including both physiological performance verification, and anti-doping tests.

Failure to comply with any verification procedures operated by the Academy will result in disqualification from the Program. In the event of any dispute concerning the eligibility of any Participant in the Program, the Academy’s decision shall be final and no correspondence or discussion will be entered into.

Judging

A committee comprised of coaches, sports scientists, ex-pro riders, team management, and cycling experts will select 10 semi-finalists from the Participants who have completed the Qualifying phase of the Program that runs from June 1st - August 31st. Participants will be judged based on their performance of prescriptive content including the required number of Zwift structured workouts and non-competitive, interval focused group rides. Data from outdoor rides on Strava will also be considered and correlated with the results demonstrated on Zwift.

3 finalists will be selected from the 10 semi-finalists during the Semi-Finals phase of the Program that runs from September 1st - November 30th. Workouts will be more challenging and so will the scrutiny. Riders will be asked to make themselves available for in person workouts, interviews, and testing. While the riders physiological abilities will remain focal to selection, overall cycling skills and potential fit for the team will also play a big role in who moves on.

The 3 finalists will be invited to join the CANYON//SRAM Racing team’s training camp in December to spend a week meeting, training, and working with the CANYON//SRAM Racing riders and staff. At the end of camp, one rider will be offered a contract for the 2017 racing season.
Data Protection

Any information (including data and images) related to the Participant that is collected or processed (which includes collection, storing, holding and carrying out operations) by the Academy at the beginning and during the course of the Program will be held and used by the Academy, members of the judging committee and their suppliers and contractors (e.g. travel agencies etc.) to administer the Program in accordance with these T&C and Zwift’s Privacy Policy (http://zwift.com/privacy/).

Aggregate, non-personal data may also be used by the Academy and/or Zwift for the purpose of undertaking market research or in facilitating reviews, developments and improvements to relevant services. Participants’ personal data may be used to send Participants news and publicity material in relation to the Program.

By enrolling in the Academy, all Participants will have consented to the transfer of their personal data to the Academy, to Zwift and to each of their suppliers, contractors and agents for the purposes of the administration of this Program and pursuant to these T&C.

The Academy confirms that all personal data requested from a Participant is necessary for the purposes of the participating in the Program. Participants shall be entitled to access, rectify, complete, update, block or delete their personal data or to object to its processing by written communication to the Academy. Personal data on Participants’ health will only be processed by the Academy, CANYON//SRAM Racing and/or those designated medical services providers exclusively for assessing the Participants’ suitability for participating in the relevant stages of the Program.

Rights to Use Name and Likeness

Participant irrevocably grants to the Academy and/or Zwift and its agents, contractors, successors, assigns and licensees the right, but not the obligation, and worldwide, perpetual, non-exclusive, royalty-free, gratis license to use, photograph, record, reproduce, render, portray, recreate and depict the undersigned’s name, biographical information, visual representation, likeness, and voice, in connection with the marketing, promotion and other commercialization of Zwift and the Program in such manner as Zwift may determine in its sole discretion.

Release and Waiver

By virtue of Participant’s participation in the Program, Participant waives, releases and discharges Zwift, and its respective officers, members, partners, shareholders, agents and employees from and against any and all claims for damages or other liability for death, personal injury, illness or property damage which may have, or which may hereafter occur to Participant, as a result of participation in the Program. Participant assumes all risks and hazards associated with participation in the Program. This waiver and release will be binding on Participant’s spouse, heirs, personal representatives, children and other assigns.
