Privacy policy

Information

This is Bodynomics.com’s  online privacy policy (“Policy”). This policy applies only to activities Bodynomics.com engages in on its website and is unrelated to the website. If you have questions about our policy, please email us.

Bodynomics.com collects certain anonymous data regarding the usage of the website. This information does not personally identify users, by itself or in combination with other information, and is gathered to improve the performance of the website. The anonymous data collected by the Bodynomics.com website can include information such as the type of browser you are using, your IP address and the length of the visit to the website. Also, if you respond to a poll, we will aggregate your responses with those of Bodynomics.com members but we do not associate your response with any personally identifiable information.

In order to become a member of Bodynomics.com and have access to our members’ only areas, we ask you to register with our site and provide your e-mail address and name. This Registration Information is personally identifiable information because it allows us to contact you and distinguish you from other users.

You may also be asked to provide personally identifiable information in other areas of the Bodynomics.com website, which may include your name, address, title, company name, number of employees in your company, telephone number, cellular phone number, date of birth, fax number, address, credit card number, and e-mail address, as well as your user ID and password, the name of your school or organization, and the name of your Varsity Organization Sport or Group. This information can be gathered when feedback or e-mails are sent to Bodynomics.com, when you register for services, post information on our forums, or make purchases via the website. In all such cases you have the option of providing us with personally identifiable information, though certain services and features may not be available to you if you do not provide us with personally identifiable information.

If you make purchases through Bodynomics.com, we need to gather information relating to the sale, including what you are buying, how you are paying and where you would like the products shipped. However, we will use that Transactional Information only to complete the transaction, to provide you with an order history and to facilitate future orders. We may also use information about the transaction for aggregate reporting (where we summarize the data in a report that does not contain your personally identifiable information).

We may receive additional personally identifiable information from you through communications with Bodynomics.com.  If so, we will use that information to fulfill your request and for aggregate reporting before deleting it from our active system.  We will use that information to give you an answer, to make sure that you are satisfied with our answer, to have a history of our service to you and to make our service better by reporting your request, without any personally identifying information, in our customer service totals.
