This Website is intended to provide a unique, educational, and entertaining experience for our registered members. We collect Personal Information from several sources: (i) from you, when you (A) provide Personal Information through the enrollment process, (B) use tools on the site or (C) choose to complete surveys or questionnaires and (D) choose to provide us with additional information; (ii) from your employer. We also collect non-Personal Information from all visitors to the site (including the number of visitors to the site, the websites from which the visitors enter the site, the pages the visitors visit on the site, the length of the visits, the names of the visitors’ internet providers and internet protocol addresses, the visitors’ browser information, the speed of the visitors’ connections and the search terms used to find the site, if applicable). We do this to enhance the site user’s experience. Personal Information may include name, date of birth, gender, postal address, telephone number, email address, social security number, marital status and language spoken.
We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under 13. If we discover that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personally identifying information, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.”
When PII May Be Requested
During the process of registering on the Site, you may be required to provide certain personal information, such as your name, e-mail address, birth date, gender, and postal code. Registration and input of PII may be required to participate in activities such as, but not limited to, subscribing to the KrowdFit Wellness Rewards program, participation in sweepstakes, contests, specific promotional activities and offers, and some surveys, or for e-commerce and sales activities. Participation in these activities is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. If you chose to purchase a service or subscription from KrowdFit you will be required to provide us with certain contact information including your name, e-mail address billing address and other information necessary to process any applicable payment, such as a credit card number and expiration date. If PII is requested for participation in an activity you cannot participate without disclosing the requested PII.
Use of PII
We may use PII in the KrowdFit Wellness Rewards program, sweepstakes, contests, surveys, or promotional activity (i) to register you for those activities, to verify that you comply with the published Rules or Terms and Use, and to notify you if you are a winner in a FitBet, sweepstakes or contest or provide you with information and materials for the KrowdFit program and for a promotion activity,(ii) for coupon, premium, or prize delivery, (iii) for notification of special offers and newsletters; (iv) for notification of important changes to Website functionality, and (v) to ensure that we comply with applicable laws. We will not share your individually identifiable personal health information with your employers for employment-related purposes. Unless an employer has a legal right to obtain your personal health information, we will de identify such personal health information. The PII you disclose for these and similar activities may be shared with third parties such as those who may administer the activity for us and shipping companies that may deliver a prize or premium. We will inform you at the time we are collecting the PII that such collection is a requirement for participation. We may also use your PII for the following purposes: (vi) to help personalize and enhance our Site and your Website experience; (vii) to send you personalized information about our Site via email, and (viii) to contact you for feedback regarding us or our advertisers or business partners. We may use your email address and other PII contact information provided to us through the Site to send you promotional materials from us and, if you have opted in, have promotional materials sent directly to you from and by third parties. You can choose these opt-ins when you register. If you do not want to receive such promotional information, you can change your communication preferences and remove yourself from our email lists at any time. If you have a KrowdFit account, please log in and go to the communication preferences page. In addition, email communication from us contains instructions on how you can remove yourself from the mailing list. Please keep in mind that any changes that you make to your email preferences may take up to ten (10) business days to process. Please also note that even if you opt out of receiving promotional emails from us or third parties, we may still use your information to communicate with you for other purposes, such as confirming orders and purchases, advising you about your KrowdFit account, or notifying you if you are a winner of a KrowdFit sweepstakes or contest or if you are participating in other activities where we believe communication is necessary. Should you respond to a particular offer from our business partners or advertisers, we may also use your PII to provide a report to our advertisers or business partners that tells them who responded to a particular offer. Further, if you accept an offer contained in, for example, an email, we may provide the advertiser or business partner with the PII necessary to fulfill that offer to you.
- Your PII may be shared with other companies and websites we own or operate for our behalf.
- Your PII may also be shared with those persons or entities that administer our Website.
- Your PII will only be shared with administrators, business partners, or advertisers for a particular purpose and they will not be permitted to use it for any unauthorized purpose.
At the time we gather any of your PII, we may give you the opportunity to “opt in” to allow us to use your PII for other purposes such as sending you specific future emails or advertising or sharing your PII with specific business partners or other advertisers. If you do not “opt in” for a specific use, we will not use your PII for that purpose.
Use of Non-PII
From time to time, we may also ask you to provide us with non-PII which is data that does not allow us to identify you, such as first name, zip code, age, gender, product and promotional preferences, and household characteristics like presence of children or income bracket. 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 will know who you are as a result of the use of your non-PII.
Purchases through our Site, if offered, may require disclosure of your PII, your credit card information, and information about the name and address of the person receiving the purchases. The credit card information may be subject to verification by the issuing credit card company or other company. Shipping information will be shared with the shipping company. Sales and shipping records will also be generated and maintained. Unless you give us permission at the time we collect such information, however, this information will not be used for any purpose except the fulfillment and recordkeeping of the transaction.
If you opt out of the use of your PII, we may still use your PII for internal purposes, or as may be necessary to administer the Site, for example, sharing that data with those persons or entities that administer the Website. Your PII may further still be used to comply with applicable law, for example, but not limited, to comply with valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, or court order, and to report sweepstakes and contest winnings as may be required by law. And it may be used in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify or contact you, or bring legal action against you if, for example, we believe that you may be causing injury to, or interference with, our Site or company’s rights or property, or other users of the Site, whether your actions are intentional or unintentional. Further, your PII may be shared with any successors and/or assigns we may have. If you wish to change your decisions to “opt out” or to “opt in” as applicable, you can email The Kardio Krew
Safety and Security
We take steps to help ensure that all information provided by you, whether PII or non-PII, is treated securely. We have implemented technical, administrative, and physical security measures to protect visitor information from unauthorized access and improper use. We protect your transactions involving Personal Information over the Internet using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. We restrict access to your Personal Information in our database to our authorized employees. From time to time, we review our security procedures in order to consider appropriate new technology and methods. Please be aware though that despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable.
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.
No data transmission over the Internet, however, can be guaranteed to be totally secure. While we try to protect your PII, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us. You use the site, and provide us with PII, at your own risk. To the extent reasonably necessary to protect a user’s safety, we may collect his or her name, address, and/or email address. To protect our security, to protect us against liability, or as required by law, we may collect a user’s name and email address. PII collected pursuant to this provision will not be used for any other purpose.
Some or all of the personal information we collect may be stored or processed on servers located outside your jurisdiction of residence, whose data protection laws may differ from the jurisdiction in which you live. As a result, this information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts or law enforcement agencies in those jurisdictions according to laws in those jurisdictions. Subject to applicable laws in such other jurisdictions, we will use reasonable efforts to ensure that appropriate protections are in place to require the data processor in that jurisdiction to maintain protections on the personal information that are equivalent to those that apply in the jurisdiction in which you live.
Passive Gathering Information Electronically
During the course of any visit to the Website, the pages you see, along with something called a “cookie,” 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 any personal identifying information, but they do enable us to provide features such as personalization. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser. Cookies in themselves do not identify the individual user, but rather the computer used. Users may have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or to not receive cookies at any time. Different browsers may address cookies differently. If you set the browser to not accept cookies, it may result in certain personalized services not being provided to users of that computer.
A web beacon is a transparent image file. Web beacons enable use 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 a website. Web beacons may also 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 which 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. We do NOT use web beacons to collect or otherwise record any type of personal information provided by or about any visitor to the Website.
Co-branded Micro Sites
Web pages and/or micro websites may be included within our Site and may be co-branded with third-party names, logos, and/or properties, and are operated and maintained by us. While such third parties are sponsors of these web pages or micro websites, they do not share in any PII collected within those web pages or micro websites.
International User Notice
The Site is intended for use exclusively by residents of the United States of America. Our computer systems are based in the United States. Personally Identifiable Information may be treated differently than it is in other parts of the world, such as the European Union.
