Our commitment to privacy
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
The information we collect
The following notice (items 1-3) applies to all information collected or submitted on the FitnessTurtles.com website.
1. Signing up for our email newsletter
On some pages you can sign up to receive our free email newsletter. We collect your first name, optionally your last name, and email address only. We use this information only when sending you our latest newsletter messages. We will never provide your personal information to any third party and promise to only send relevant information pertaining to our website FitnessTurtles.com.
2. Registering to participate in our online forum
3. Tracking and statistics
We use only non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.
We follow all rules and regulations put forth in the CAN-SPAM Act. You can unsubscribe yourself from our email list at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link found at the end of each and every email we send.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.
If you use the forum or blog on this Web site, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums.
If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend's name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. FitnessTurtles stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program.
We post customer testimonials on our web site which may contain personally identifiable information. Prior to posting a customer's testimonial we do obtain the customer's consent to post their name along with their testimonial.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personally identifiable information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
If you have any questions about security on our website, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We set a persistent cookie to store your passwords, so you don't have to enter it more than once. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.
If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some areas of our site will be limited.
Updating or correcting personally identifiable information
If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct or update it by making the change within your account profile page.
We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page.
