Please remember that this Privacy Policy applies only to information collected by our Website. We are not responsible for the privacy of any information you reveal or post in any public forum (e.g., message board, blog, personal page, social media, etc.), or for the privacy practices of websites that are operated or owned by third parties.

The Privacy Policy covers both our “online” (e.g., web and mobile services, including any web sites operated by us such as www.vipweightlosscenters.com, mobile applications, however accessed and/or used, whether via personal computers, mobile devices or otherwise) and “offline” (e.g., collection of data through mailings, telephone, or in person) activities owned, operated, provided, or made available by the Company. Our “online” and “offline” activities are collectively referenced as the “Services.” This Privacy Policy also applies to your use of interactive features or downloads that: (i) we own or control; (ii) are available through the Services; or (iii) interact with the Services and post or incorporate this Privacy Policy.

If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, do not use any of our Services or give us any of your information.

This Privacy Policy is incorporated by reference into the applicable Terms and Conditions.

The intent of the use of the website is learn about us. We do not require registration and you cannot make appointments on-line. You can print off certain forms and bring them with you to appointments. We may collect information that by itself cannot be used to identify or contact you, such as demographic information (like age, profession or gender) and health information (like current weight) (“Non-Personally Identifiable Information”). Non-Personally Identifiable Information may also include user IP addresses, browser types, domain names, and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of our Website. Non-Personally Identifiable Information is used to help us understand who uses our Website and to improve and market our Website in general.

Information from Other Sources

We may also supplement the information we collect with information from other sources to assist us in evaluating and improving our Website, to determine your preferences so that we can tailor our Website, and/or to study nutritional, weight-loss, behavioral and fitness questions in general.

COLLECTION OF INFORMATION ON OUR WEBSITE

Cookies and Action Tags

We also collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information passively using “cookies” and “action tags.” “Cookies” are small text files that are placed on your computer or mobile device in order to identify

(i) your Web browser,

(ii) the activities of your computer on our Website and

(iii) your activity in connection with our advertisements and other marketing and promotional efforts. Cookies may be used to: personalize your experience on our Website (e.g., to dynamically generate content on webpages specifically designed for you); assist you in using our Website and its features (e.g., to save you time by not having to reenter your name upon each visit to our Website); and allow us to statistically monitor how you are using our Website for purposes of improving our online offerings.

We also may use cookies to conduct marketing and promotional efforts, tailor certain advertisements to your browser that we think may be of interest to you, or to determine the popularity of certain content. We may link the information stored in cookies to Personally Identifiable Information you provide us, and to personalize your Website experience we may store Personally Identifiable Information you provide us in an encrypted form in temporary or “session” cookies, which are erased when you close your browser.

Although most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, you may reset your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to reject cookies generally. Most browsers offer instructions on how to do so in the “Help” section of the toolbar.

“Action tags,” or “Web Beacons,” also known as GIF tags, are a web technology used to help track anonymous website usage information, such as how many times a specific page has been viewed. In contrast to cookies, which are stored in a user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Web beacons or similar technologies help us better manage content on our Services by informing us what content is effective, count users of the Services, monitor how users navigate the Services, count how many e-mails that we send were actually opened or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed. We do not tie the information gathered by web beacons to our customers’ personal information. Action tags are invisible to you, and any portion of our Website, including advertisements, or e-mail sent on our behalf, may contain action tags. Unlike cookies, action tags are not placed on your computer.

For example, third-party ad servers may track anonymous website usage through action tags on our Website and other websites. They do this by setting a cookie (or reading a cookie previously placed by them) on users’ computers to track the activities of users who view a web page that contains action tags. Such third-party ad servers may use information about your visits to this Website and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you.

Similarly, we use Google Analytics to help us track and analyze usage of our Website, using cookies and action tags. All data collected by Google Analytics on our behalf is owned by us and used to better understand our users and improve our Website. More information can be found in Google Analytics Privacy Policy.

By using cookies and action tags together, we are able to gain valuable information to improve our Website and measure the effectiveness of our advertising and marketing campaigns. We do not disclose any of your Personally Identifiable Information to our advertising partners through the use of cookies or action tags.

Social Media (Features) and Widgets

Our Website includes social media features, buttons and widgets provided by third party social media platforms such as Facebook, You Tube and Twitter (collectively, the “Features”). A Feature may collect your IP address and which page you are visiting on our Website, and may set a cookie to enable the Feature to function properly. This cookie may allow the social media platform to link the foregoing data with your user profile. The Features are either hosted by the third party platform or directly on our Website. Your interactions with these Features are governed by the privacy policy of the relevant platform.

Facebook Connect or other OpenID provider

You can log in to our Website using sign-in services such as Facebook Connect or an Open ID provider. These services will authenticate your identity.

Public Forums and the Public Profile Feature

We feature public forums such as those contained in the Community Areas where you and other users of our Website can communicate with one another. In addition, we offer both the “Public Profile” and “Account Settings” features of our Website to permit you to share information about yourself (including, if you elect, Personally Identifiable Information) with others. THIS PRIVACY POLICY DOES NOT PROTECT YOU WHEN YOU USE OUR PUBLIC FORUMS OR PROVIDE INFORMATION (INCLUDING PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION) ABOUT YOURSELF THROUGH THE PUBLIC PROFILE FEATURE OR THROUGH ANY COMMUNITY AREA AVAILABLE ON OUR WEBSITE. You should be aware that any information shared in a public forum such as a message board, blog, personal page, posting, group, bulletin board or recipe swap or through our Public Profile feature is public information and may be seen or collected by third parties that do not adhere to our Privacy Policy, although the availability of personal pages or groups identified as “private” may be limited to certain permitted users. However, even information marked “private” may be viewed by our staff. You should think carefully before disclosing any information in any public forum, or through the Public Profile feature, on our Website. For example, you should not select a username that includes personal information. To request removal of your personal information from our Community Areas, contact our Privacy Coordinator at the address indicated below.

Log Files

We also collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information through our Internet log files, which record data such as user IP addresses, browser types, domain names, and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of our Website. This information may be used to analyze trends, to administer the Website, to monitor our Website’s use, and to gather general demographic information. We may link this information to Personally Identifiable Information for these and other purposes such as personalizing your experience on our Website.

We may also use the information gathered on our Website to perform statistical analysis of user behavior, to analyze and evaluate issues relating to nutrition, weight-loss, behavior and fitness, or to evaluate and improve our Services. We may link some of this information to Personally Identifiable Information for internal purposes only or to assist you in your personal weight-loss efforts.

WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO ALTER THIS PRIVACY POLICY

If we decide to change this Privacy Policy, we will post those changes on our Website so you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use Personally Identifiable Information in a manner significantly different from that stated in this Privacy Policy, or otherwise disclosed to you, at the time it was collected, we will notify you by email or otherwise, and you will have a choice as to whether or not we use your Personally Identifiable Information in the new manner. We may also make non-significant changes to our Privacy Policy that generally will not affect our use of your Personally Identifiable Information. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, you should not use our Website.
