PRIVACY POLICY

This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) informs you what data we collect and how we collect it. By registering on the Services, or enabling one of our Third Party Providers (as defined below) to register for you, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and enter into a legally binding contract with us. You expressly agree to the processing and collection of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy. Capitalized terms not defined herein have the meanings set forth in the Terms and Conditions, available at https://www.dietid.com.

What and how we collect:

We collect information our Third Party Providers provide to us to enable your registration, and information you provide us with during registration or use of the Services (“Personal Information”). If you register on the Services on the Site or through a Third Party Provider, we will create a profile for you that may include (a) your email address, username, password, zip code, a validation code, height, weight, gender, age, activity level, weight velocity (b) any other profile information you wish to add in the future; (c) information you provide us when you contact us for help; and (d) user content you enter into our system when using the App or Site, such as self-reported check-ins or any other user generated content. We will store any information you communicate to us. You can choose not to provide us with certain Personal Information.

In addition, the Services may collect certain information automatically, including, but not limited to, the type of mobile device you use, the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Services, your operating system, the type of Internet browsers you use, and information about the way you use the App or Site.

We use third-party analytics tools to help us measure usage and trends. We collect and use this data with analytics information from other Users so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify any particular individual User.

When you use the Services, we may use GPS technology (or other similar location technology) to determine your current location in order to determine in which city you are located. We will not share your current location with other users or our Third Party Providers unless you publicly share this information.

What we do with your information:

We may use your Personal Information to provide you and other Users with services and customer support, and to improve and adapt the App and our Site. We may also use the information you provided us to contact you from time to time to provide you with important information, required notices and marketing promotions. This includes, but is not limited to, communications to:

  • help you efficiently access your information after you sign in;

  • remember information so you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the or use the Services;

  • provide personalized content and information to you and others, which could include online ads or other forms of marketing;

  • provide, improve, test, and monitor the effectiveness of our services;

  • develop and test new products and features;

  • monitor metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns;

  • diagnose or fix technology problems; and

  • automatically update the App on your device.

Any information you voluntarily disclose in public posting to the Site or with the App becomes available to the public. Any self-reported check in details and personal details will remain private unless you decide to share it publicly. If you have added a social accountability buddy, certain individuals will have access to a summary of your healthy eating challenge participation data, but will not be able to see a detailed log of your self-reported healthy eating challenge check-ins. Once you have shared Personal Information or made it public, that information may be shared by others.

We will not disclose your Personal Information to third parties without your permission unless provided-for in this Privacy Policy.

We may disclose your Personal Information to our parent company, any subsidiaries, joint venturers, or other companies under common control (collectively, “Affiliates”). We may also disclose Personal Information to our trusted service providers working on our behalf (“Contractors”), who will not be authorized to independently use such information. We will require our Affiliates and Contractors to honor this Privacy Policy.

If you were referred to the Services by one of our third party partners (e.g. by your doctor, a third party website, service, application, etc.) (“Third Party Provider”), we may share your Personal Information with such Third Party Provider. The Third Party Provider’s use of such Personal Information will not be covered by this Privacy Policy, and will instead be subject to such Third Party Provider’s privacy policy and/or other terms you agree upon with the Third Party Provider. We disclaim all liability and responsibility for any Third Party Provider’s use of your Personal information, and you agree to look solely to the Third Party Provider with any questions, complaints, or other issues related to such Third Party Provider’s use of your Personal Information.

We may disclose your Personal Information to a company that merges with us, acquires us, or purchases our assets, in which case such company may continue to process your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. In such an event, we will take steps to notify you via email and/or a prominent notice on our Site that a change in use, ownership or control of your Personal Information has occurred (advising you in such case of any choices you may have regarding such use, ownership or control). We may also disclose your Personal Information if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) resolve disputes, investigate problems, or enforce our rights under this Privacy Policy or any other terms or agreements with you; (b) comply with relevant laws or to respond to requests from law enforcement or other government officials relating to investigations or alleged illegal activity, in which case you hereby authorize us to disclose personal information without subpoenas or warrants served on us; or (c) protect and defend our rights or property or the rights and property of you or third parties. Any new or modified information you provide will be subject to the then-current Privacy Policy and its terms.

We may redact certain data or Personal Information that can identify you and share such anonymized data with other parties. We may also combine your information with other information in a way that is no longer associated with you and share that aggregated information.

To the extent we are technically capable and legally allowed to, we will delete all Personal Information within a reasonable time from receipt of a request from you to delete this information. If we receive a request to delete information or deactivate an account, within a reasonable time, we will delete the relevant information from our active databases and take the account offline to the extent we can.
