Weight Awareness and its operational service partners may collect and use your personal information to operate Weight Awareness and deliver the services you have requested. As an extra precaution, we limit access only to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs. We have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to protect personal information about you. These services may include the display of customized content and advertising based upon the information Weight Awareness has collected. Weight Awareness does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
Weight Awareness also uses your personal information to inform you of other products or services available from Weight Awareness and its affiliates. Weight Awareness may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
Weight Awareness does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Weight Awareness may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your personal information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party.
We may occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. We will only provide those companies the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Weight Awareness may access and/or disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Weight Awareness or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Weight Awareness, or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Weight Awareness services or members of the public.
Personal information collected on this site may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Weight Awareness or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using this site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country. Weight Awareness abides by the safe harbor framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of data from the European Union.
We will not disclose any of your personal information unless you authorize us to do so, the law requires it, or to protect the rights or property of Weight Awareness. Any non-personal information, communications or material you send to Weight Awareness by Internet electronic mail are on a non-confidential basis.
We are free to use and reproduce any such information freely, and for any purpose whatsoever. The company reserves the right to use comments provided by participants on Weight Awareness bulletin boards, chat rooms and in the Weight Awareness newsletter as part of our promotion and marketing. Specifically, we will be free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how or techniques contained in such information for any purpose, including developing, manufacturing or marketing products. Any information you send to Weight Awareness must be truthful, legal, and not violate the rights of others.
Weight Awareness may display targeted advertisements based on personal information. Advertisers (including ad serving companies) may assume that people who interact with, view, or click on targeted ads meet the targeting criteria - for example, women ages 18-24 from a particular geographic area.
Weight Awareness does not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad. However, by interacting with or viewing an ad you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad.
Weight Awareness advertisers may include financial service providers (such as banks, insurance agents, stock brokers and mortgage lenders) and non-financial companies (such as stores, airlines, and software companies).
