Effective July 1, 2015
OUR COMMITMENT TO PRIVACY
HFITNESS is all about sharing information about our products without requiring you to submit any more Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) than is necessary to use the Site effectively. We do not require you to register or submit PII in order to visit the Site. Some activities on the Site can be performed without providing PII. When we ask for PII to, for instance, participate in an activity, or make a purchase, we will not require anyone to disclose more PII than we believe is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity. We collect the following categories of information from you:
You can choose not to provide us with certain PII, but then you may not be able to take advantage of all of the services and products offered on the Site.
During the course of any visit to the Site, the pages you see, along with something called “cookies,” are downloaded to your computer. Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. These cookies do not contain or collect any PII, but they do enable us to provide features such as personalization. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you usually can change your browser to limit or prevent cookies. Cookies in themselves do not personally identify the individual user, but rather the computer that is being used to access the Site. You may have the opportunity to set your computer to accept all cookies, to notify you when a cookie is issued, or to not receive cookies at any time. Different browsers may address cookies differently. If you set your browser to not accept cookies, it may result in certain personalized services not being provided to you when you use that computer.
A web beacon is a transparent image file. Web beacons enable HFITNESS to track website usage information, such as the number of times a given web page has been viewed. Web beacons are invisible to you and (unlike cookies) are not placed on your computer. They may be used in association with cookies to understand how visitors interact with the pages and content on the pages of the Site.
Web beacons also may be used to track whether you have opened an HTML email. When the email is opened, a part of the code that makes up the HTML page calls a web server to load the web beacon that then generates a record showing that the email has been viewed. Web Beacons may also recognize when the email was opened, how many times it was forwarded and which URL’s (links within the email) were clicked.
HFITNESS does not use web beacons to collect or otherwise record any type of PII provided by or about any User.
When you send an email to HFITNESS, we may retain your email address and the contents of the email you send.
From time to time, we may also ask you to provide us with non-PII that is data that is not intended to allow us to identify you personally, such as your first name, birthday or zip code. Your non-PII may be aggregated and used for our internal purposes or for creating reports for third-party advertisers and partners, or otherwise shared with third parties for any lawful purpose, without your permission. No third party is intended to be able to know who you are as a result of the use of your non-PII.
When you provide us with your PII, we may use such information for a number of purposes, including:
HFITNESS allows you to change or correct inaccuracies in your PII by logging into your account and making changes to your PII.
HFITNESS may give, share, sell or trade your PII to or with any third parties under the following circumstances:
We may retain other companies and individuals to perform certain functions on our behalf. Examples include, but are not limited to, companies and individuals who: (i) administer the HFITNESS accounts; (ii) process purchases and payments; (iii) conduct surveys or promotional activities; (iv) deliver products; or (v) provide customer support, web hosting, internet service, and data analysis. Such third parties may be provided with access to PII needed to perform their functions but may not use such information for any other purpose.
In the event of a sale, merger, liquidation, dissolution or sale or transfer of substantially all of the assets of HFITNESS or the Site, PII and/or other information collected about you from the Site may be sold, assigned or transferred to the party acquiring all or substantially all of the equity and/or assets of HFITNESS or the Site in order to permit the party to continue the operation of HFITNESS and/or the Site or any successor version of the Site. By using the Site and providing PII to HFITNESS, you consent to the sale and transfer of your information as described in this paragraph.
Your birthday is the most important day of the year and to make sure that everyone knows how special you are, HFITNESS will share your birthday with other users of the Site. If you don’t care to share this information, you can always instruct us to make your birthday private or you can just share it with your friends on HFITNESS. You can always decide whether you would like to share your birthday by editing your account settings.
HFITNESS does not collect, store or otherwise maintain any credit card information from individuals who make a purchase through the Site.
The Site may contain links to third-party websites. Please be aware that HFITNESS cannot control and is not responsible for the information collection practices of such websites, which may differ from those of HFITNESS. We encourage you to review and understand the privacy policies of these web sites before providing any information to them.
We maintain a variety of commercially reasonable safeguards designed to protect your PII from unauthorized access and disclosure. For example, we use industry accepted tools and techniques to protect against unauthorized access to our systems.
You should be aware, however, that HFITNESS has no control over the security of other websites on the Internet that you might visit even when a link may appear to those websites from our Site. If you share your computer or use a computer that is accessed by the general public, remember to sign off and close your browser window when you have finished your session. This will help to ensure that others cannot access your PII.
We want you to feel confident using the Site. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take commercially reasonable steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your PII, searches or other communications always will remain secure. In the event of a breach of the confidentiality or security of your PII, we will notify you if reasonably possible and as reasonably necessary so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may notify you under such circumstances using the email address(es) we have on record for you. You should also take care with how you handle and disclose your PII. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission’s Web site at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/menus/consumer/data.shtm for information about how to protect yourself against identity theft.
The Site is not intended for persons under the age of 18. HFITNESS does not knowingly market to, or solicit information, accept service or collect information from any person under the age of 18. If HFITNESS becomes aware that any person submitting information to the Site is under the age of 18, we will attempt to delete the account and any related information as soon as possible. We require that only persons 18 years of age or older use the Site. By using the Site, you hereby represent that you are at least 18 years old.
If you are a California resident, California law permits you to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their “direct marketing purposes” as such term is defined by California’s Shine the Light Law (California Civil Vode 1798.83). To make such a request, please email us at www.hfitness.com.
We will provide a list of the categories of personal information disclosed to third parties for third-party direct marketing purposes, along with the names and addresses of these third parties. This request may be made no more than once per calendar year. We reserve our right not to respond to requests submitted other than to the email or postal address specified above. You should put “California Privacy Rights” in the subject line and in your request. You must provide HFITNESS with specific information regarding yourself so HFITNESS can accurately respond to the request.
