PRIVACY POLICY
We share your concern about the protection of your personal information online. Please take some time to review our policy regarding this important subject. Our Privacy Policy includes examples of the types of personal information that we collect and the kinds of organizations and companies with whom we share such information. These examples are illustrative and should not be considered a complete list of our information collection efforts, our use of the information or our policies regarding sharing our information. We intend to comply with all applicable federal and state laws that may restrict the types of information that we may disclose about you or require us to provide you with notice about our collection practices.

INFORMATION THAT WE GATHER
We gather two kinds of information about users of this website:

Personal information that individual users provide when registering as members of Weight Thinkers™ or to purchase products or voluntarily at certain other points in this website; and

Tracking information that is automatically collected about all visitors to this site.

MEMBERSHIP
We don’t require you to become a member of Weight Thinkers™ in order to look at this website, but if you wish to take advantage of the services that we provide our members, then we require you to become a member. To become a member you will need to supply us with your e-mail and postal addresses, choose a unique user name and password and give us some additional information about yourself as well as pay membership fees.

SURVEYS AND POLLS
At times you may be asked to participate in surveys and polls that are generally aimed at obtaining general information. Because information obtained in these surveys is connected with individual users and is used by us to improve our services to our members, participation is voluntary.

TRACKING INFORMATION
Tracking data consists of both individual and aggregated information and is automatically gathered using “cookies.”

What is a cookie? A cookie is a small data file containing information such as a user’s login name that is written to the user’s hard drive by a web server and used to track the pages visited. The cookies that we use are encoded and contain a unique digital signature to prevent tampering. Cookies do not contain passwords. The individual information gathered in this manner is used only for our internal purposes, such as accessing a member’s account information. We also use the information on an aggregate basis to track traffic patterns on our sites and to track readership of the information on our website and participation in our programs.

You can control your browser’s settings regarding cookies by selecting “Internet Options” or “Preferences” in the menu bar of your browser. This will allow you to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, have your browser notify you when you receive a new cookie or disable cookies altogether. However, because cookies allow you navigate our website with greater ease, without having to log on constantly by entering your User Name and password, we recommend that you always leave them turned on.

DISCLOSURES PERMITTED BY LAW
We do not sell or disclose personal information about you that we collect as described above to anyone except to provide you with products or services either (1) when we have your permission, or (2) under the following circumstances:

We provide the information on a confidential basis to unaffiliated companies whom we engage as contractors or agents to provide services for us, such as maintaining software or sending direct mail. Information will be shared with such contractors only to the extent reasonably necessary for them to perform services on our behalf and pursuant to confidentiality agreements;

We will furnish information in response to subpoenas, court orders or legal process from law enforcement agencies, state or federal regulators or private litigants; and

If in the unlikely event that we sell or otherwise transfer all of our assets related to any website that we own or operate and any product or service that we offer, we will require the purchaser to honor our current Privacy Policy until the purchaser notifies you of changes that they are making to our Privacy Policy and permits you to exercise any rights that you may have under applicable law to limit disclosures about you.

You can correct or update the information we collected from you during registration by notifying our customer service department.

SECURITY
We limit access to personal information about you to those employees that we determine need the information to provide information, products or services to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard your personal information. However, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our servers or that information that you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted over the Internet.

CONTACTS WITH THIRD PARTIES
We partner with other organizations and professionals to provide specific services to our members. When a member chooses to take advantage of a service provided by such a third party, that member makes direct contact with the third party. Such other organizations and professionals have their own privacy policies and data collection practices, which are not covered by our privacy policy.

QUESTIONS?
Questions or comments regarding this Privacy Policy should be directed to Weight Thinkers™ at 1158 26th Street #446, Santa Monica, CA 90403.
