By using the Fit Buddha website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

You acknowledge that your continued use of our Service after we publish or send a notice about changes to our Privacy Policy means that the collection, use, and sharing of your personal data is subject to this Privacy Policy.

The Information We Collect

When you visit our Service, we may collect information regarding your visit from your computer. Such information helps us to determine information about how you found our Service, the date you visited our Service, and search engines that may have led you to our Service. We collect this information in order to continually improve and enhance the functionality of the Service.

Generally, you may provide us with two types of information, User Content, which may include Personally Identifiable Information, and Website Usage information, both are discussed in greater detail below.

Personal Information You Choose to Provide

  1. Sign-Up Information and Profile. We will ask you to provide certain information if you choose to register with our Service, including your name, email address, your date of birth, address, telephone number, and other information which identifies you (collectively “Personally Identifiable Information”).
  2. User Content. Our Service may offer its users the opportunity to post User Content, comments, reviews, and tag messages via bulletin boards, blogs, articles, chat rooms, and social media. If you choose to use these features, you should be aware that any Personally Identifiable Information you submit through these public Service features can be read, collected, or used by other viewers and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the Personally Identifiable Information you choose to submit in these public forums of the Service.

We may occasionally ask users of our Service to complete online surveys, questionnaires, and opinion polls about the Service and their activities, attitudes, and interests.

Website Usage Information

  1. Cookies. The Service may use cookies to collect information for record-keeping purposes and make it easier to navigate the Service. Cookies are small text files that are stored on users’ hard drives, which often include an anonymous unique identifier. The Service uses both “session ID cookies” and “persistent cookies.” Session ID cookies are used to store information while a user is logged into the site and expire when the user closes their browser. Persistent cookies are used to make tasks like logging into the site easier for returning users by remembering a user’s login information and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Website.  Persistent cookies stay on a user’s hard drive from one session to the next.  Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser’s directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. When you visit our Website, our computer may ask your computer for permission to employ the use of a session cookie or persistent cookie.  Our Website will then send a cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it. Most web browsers can be adjusted to inform you when a cookie has been sent to you and provide you with the opportunity to refuse that cookie.  However, refusing a cookie may, in some cases, preclude you from using, or negatively impact the display or function of, our Website or certain areas or features of our Website.  You may choose not to receive cookies from the Service by following instructions in your web browser’s “help” file, but this may make certain features of the Service inaccessible to you.
  2. IP Address and Clickstream Data.  Our servers automatically collect data about your Internet Protocol address when you visit us.   When you request pages from our Website, our servers may log your IP Address and sometimes your domain name.  Our server may also record the referring page that linked you to us (e.g., another website or a search engine); the pages you visit on this Website; the website you visit after this Website; other information about the type of web browser, computer, platform, related software and settings you are using; any search terms you have entered on this Website or a referral website; and other web usage activity and data logged by our web servers.  We use this information for internal system administration, to help diagnose problems with our servers, to analyze general usage patterns, and to administer our Website.  Such information may also be used to gather broad demographic information, such as country of origin and Internet Service Provider.  We may aggregate user information in a non-personally identifiable manner to share with advertisers, to enhance the Website with new features, and for our general business purposes.

    Any or all of these activities with regard to the above-described Website Usage Information may be performed on our behalf by our third-party service providers.
