Biz AnyWare provides My Swim Results to allow the collection and processing of swim meet results to produce a range of reports and features.
How we collect the information.
Meet results are submitted to the website from a variety of sources:-
- Swimming Organisations
- Swimming organisations can submit their swim meet results in return for earning a commission based on the number of My Swim Results subscribers with results in the uploaded data.
- Downloaded directly from publically available websites
- Results of certain swim meets are often released publically. These result files may be accessed and imported into the My Swim Results system to provide additional data for a number of the reports.
Once the results are imported into the system, the information can only be used for the purpose of displaying swim meet results and the generation of reports.
Guest users have their IP address recorded in order to ensure that they are not over-using the guest user privilege. The IP Address of subscribers to My Swim Results is not recorded.
What we do with the information.
The information collected is used to:-
- Provide services or information that you request
- Help respond to emails, phone call, queries, comments, requests and complaints.
- Collate into the refining of target times, excellence pathways and a number of other features.
- Subscribers can choose to follow other swimmers in the system in order to keep up-to-date with their progress.
- Swimming Organisations can use the information to contact their own members.
We do NOT publish the data to unrelated third parties unless there is a legal requirement to do so.
No Birthdays or swimmer ID’s are displayed to anyone without the necessary clearance.
No member information collected is used by Biz AnyWare or My Swim Results to contact any individual unless they initiate a contact to us via email or phone. In the case of us being contacted, the information is used only to resolve any queries.
Swimmers, Coaches or Swimming Organisations can subscribe to our website or API Service to access certain information for their own purposes. The subscriber’s role in the swimming organisation can increase the type of information that is released to them. E.g. A membership coordinator at a State level Organisation will be able to see swimmer id, birthday and age information but a basic subscriber will not be able these fields in any reports or results.
We are not responsible for the actions of subscribers or swimming organisations nor are we responsible for any additional information you might provide directly to third parties.

As there is a large number of children participating in the sport that My Swim Results would like to continue to encourage their involvement. However their involvement on the My Swim Results website means:-
- that any postings that they make are only to a limited audience and not publicly available
- Access to Birthday and age information is supressed to authorised users from the Swimming Organisation
- Requests can be made to make the "swimmer invisible"
- Any attachments found containing personally identifiable information (other than name, club and age group information) will be removed.
Publically available information
Swimmers names and club information is publicly available throughout the dynamic pages. The swimmers cover and profile photo will also be made available.
Any attachments submitted to My Meet Results may be removed if there is found to contain personally identifiable outside of Name, Club and Age Group.
A swimmer can request that their results remain invisible to everyone. This will mean that all of the dynamic results will no longer contain the results from that particular swimmer both in any past or future swim meet results. The swimmer may also not appear when a visitor conduct a search.
Note that any document or attachment submitted with the meet results may still contain the swimmers name and club information.
We understand that this can undermine the purpose of the website however we need to respect the individual’s privacy.
Public Search engines
Search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing have a huge amount of information to sift through and as such, changes to the content on the My Swim Results website may take some time to replicate to each of the search engines.
Swimmers marked as invisible may take a while to be removed from each of the search engine's and My Swim Results has no control over how long it will take.
Swimmers names and clubs are generally captured by Search Engines to facilitate their search functions.
Membership services allows participating clubs, state and national bodies to collect membership registration fees online.
Features allow the Clubs, state and national bodies to administer their own membership lists and use the results features of the website.
