If you’re in the habit of creating videos based on your Strava activities via the Relive app, you already know that Strava has ended their three-year partnership with app over a Relive update that violated some of Strava’s rules about user data.

In a statement, Strava said: “We have strict standards for how our API partners utilise our member data. We deeply respect the trust of our member community and expect our partners to do the same.

“Relive’s current use of Strava member data violates our API agreement and we have ended its integration with Strava. We are disappointed that Relive was unwilling to make the changes necessary to comply with the agreement.”

For its part, Relive claims that “nothing has changed about how Relive uses and protects your data or how we use their API. We’re working to make sure you can keep your current and past activities on Relive. We believe this is your data and you should decide how it’s used.”

The site says it’s still possible to create videos in Relive by connecting your Garmin, Suunto or Polar device directly to the app, recording directly to the app, or importing your activity files to the Relive site.
