COOKIES AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our site are visited and by how many people. We and our third-party service providers may use cookies, clear GIFs, pixel tags, and other technologies that help us better understand user behavior, personalize preferences, perform research and analytics and improve the Platform. These technologies, for example, may allow us to tailor the Platform to your needs, save your password in password-protected areas, track the pages you visit, help us manage content, and compile statistics about Platform usage. We also use certain of these technologies to deliver advertisements through the Platform that may interest you. We or our third-party service providers may also use certain of these technologies in emails to our customers to help us track email response rates, identify when our emails are viewed, and track whether our emails are forwarded. We may also use local shared objects (also known as "Flash cookies") to assist in delivering special content, such as video clips or animation. Flash cookies are stored on your device, but they are not managed through your web browser. To learn more about how to manage Flash cookies, you can visit the Adobe website and make changes at the Global Privacy Settings Panel.

We require that cookies be enabled for you to take advantage of the services we offer on Fitnessity.

CHILDREN'S PRIVACY

There are Services being offered for children and adults starting from age 2 and up. Fitnessity requires everyone to be at least 13 years old before they can create an account (in some jurisdictions, this age limit may be higher). Parents or Legal Guardians are advised to be present and hands while their child creates an account on the Platform. Parents or Legal Guardians are recommended and advised in educating their child about the dangers of open communication on the Platform and creating boundaries and configuring the settings to keep their child safe and responsible. Creating an account with false info is a violation of our terms. This includes accounts registered on the behalf of someone under 13. If your underage child created an account on Fitnessity, you can show them how to delete their account via settings. If you'd like to report an account belonging to someone under 13, please contact us at contact@fitnessity.net. Note that we'll promptly delete the account of any child under the age of 13 that's reported to us. If we discover that an individual under 13 has provided us with personal information, we will close the account and delete such information. Please mark your inquiries "COPPA Information Request." Parents or legal guardian, you can also learn more about how to protect your children's privacy online here.

Adults 18 and over are only permitted to communicate with a service provider or to book a Service on the Fitnessity Platform. Children and Teens 17 and under are not permitted and are advised not to communicate, book a Service, or meet up with any Service Provider alone or without a parent or legal guardian present. Children are not permitted in traveling or being alone with any Service provider found on the Fitnessity Platform even if a parent or legal guardian permits it. You acknowledge that Fitnessity is not responsible for irresponsibility or abuse of Service of the Platform

SECURITY

We employ appropriate physical, procedural and technological security measures, which are reasonably designed to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access or disclosure. Fitnessity may use encryption, passwords, and physical security measures to help protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. No security measures, however, are 100% failsafe. Therefore, we do not promise and cannot guarantee, and thus you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will not be collected, disclosed and/or used by others. You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, phone, and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, keeping your log-in and password private, and not recycling passwords from other websites or accounts. Fitnessity is not responsible for the unauthorized use of your information nor for any lost, stolen, compromised passwords, or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.

UPDATING, DELETING, AND CORRECTING YOUR INFORMATION

You may review, correct and delete certain information about you by logging into the Platform and navigating to your settings page in "Your Dashboard." You must promptly update your Account information if it changes or is inaccurate. Upon your request, we will close your Account and remove your profile information from view as soon as reasonably possible. We may retain information from closed Accounts in order to comply with the law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations of any user, enforce our Terms of Use, and/or for any other purposes otherwise permitted by law that we deem necessary in our sole discretion. You should understand, however, that once you transmit User Content through the Platform, you may not be able to change or remove it. Once we have deleted or removed your Account, you agree that Fitnessity will not be responsible to you for retaining information related to your Account.

YOUR CHOICES REGARDING EMAIL COMMUNICATIONS

We may send periodic promotional or informational emails to you. You may opt out of such communications by following the opt-out instructions contained in the email.

YOUR CONTINUED ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE PLATFORM WILL BE SUBJECT TO THE TERMS OF THE THEN-CURRENT POLICY.

CONSENT TO TRANSFER

Our computer systems are currently based in the United States, so your personal data will be processed by us in the United States, where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world, such as the European Union. If you create an Account with the Platform as a visitor from outside the United States, by using the Platform, you agree to this Policy and you consent to the transfer of all such information to the United States, which may not offer an equivalent level of protection of that required in the European Union or certain other countries, and to the processing of that information as described in this Policy.
