Personal Identification Information
We may request personal identification information from you (such as your name, street address, telephone number, credit card number, e-mail address, and/or any other identifier that permits the physical or online contacting of you) in connection with your use of, or participation in, membership registration for MonarchFitness.com, subscription registrations, our contests, sweepstakes, promotions, surveys, forums, content submissions, chats, bulletin boards, discussion groups, requests for suggestions, or additional information (including via e-mail to us), and in connection with other activities, services, features or resources we make available on our site. Additional personal identification information including, but not limited to, your gender, height, weight, fitness experience level, fitness goals, product preferences, and workout preferences may be collected in order to improve the Site. In all of these cases, we will collect personal identification information from you only if you voluntarily submit such information to us. Unless otherwise stated in this policy, we ensure that we will never intentionally disclose personal information without receiving your permission to do so. Further, we may contact you based on the information you provide online whether in connection with your registration or in such places as the above described forums.
If you do provide us with personal information for any of these activities, we may use it to conduct the activity. We may also use cookie technology and Web beacons (discussed in detail below) to improve your experience of these activities, including remembering your preferences or authenticating your access to your personal information. In addition, in the event that your personally identifiable information is requested as part of our surveys, polls or promotions, such personally identifiable information may be added to your registration information.
We have the following exceptions to these policies: We will release specific information about you or your account to comply with any valid legal inquiry or process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute or court order. We will also release specific information in special cases, such as if there is an attempted breach of the security of the Site, or a physical or property threat to you or others. We may also transfer user information, including personally identifiable information, in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, the sale of related assets or corporate division, or other fundamental corporate change. We may provide some of your personally identifiable information to a third party in situations that would better our Site. In any case when personally identifiable information is provided to a third party, we will omit information including your name, street address, telephone number, email address, credit card number or any information that would allow the third party to contact you directly. Information provided to a third party could include, but is not limited to, your gender, height, weight, fitness experience level, fitness goals, product preferences, and workout preferences.
Further, the information you enter when making a purchase can be shared with payment processors, financial gateways, and your credit card company to authorize credit card payments. Such information may also be shared with necessary third parties solely for the purpose or carrying out the transactions.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your information and password. You shall be responsible for all uses of your registration, whether or not authorized by you. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your registration or password.
Non-Personal Identification Information
We collect non-personal identification information through the use of, without limitation, the following types of methodology:
“Cookie” technology: A “cookie” is an element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then store it on your system.
“IP address tracking”: An “IP address” is a number that is assigned to your computer when you are on the Internet. When you request pages from our Site, our servers log your IP address.
“Web beacons”: A “Web beacon,” or “clear gif,” is a small graphic image on a webpage or web-based document that a website can use to determine information about a user.
Non-personal identification information might include the browser you use, the type of computer, technical information about your means of connection to our Site such as the operating systems and the Internet service providers utilized, and other similar information. Our systems may also automatically gather information about the areas you visit and search terms you utilize on our Site and about the links you may select from within our Site to other areas of the World Wide Web or elsewhere online.
We use such information for our business purposes, and, in particular, to administer the Site, better manage advertising on the Site, and, in the aggregate, to understand how our users as a group use the services, features and other resources provided on our Site. This way we know which areas of our Site are favorites of our users, which areas need improvement, and what technologies are being used so that we may continually improve our Site.
We may share this aggregate statistical information with our partners, suppliers and other third parties, but we will not share any individual names, personal navigational or other personal information.
Further, from time-to-time we contract with a third party web analytics provider to help manage and optimize our Site. We use this service to help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising and how visitors use our Site. To do this, we use Web beacons and cookie technology on the Site. Although this third-party provider logs the information coming from our Site on our behalf, we control how that data may and may not be used.
Links to Third-Party Websites
Third-party links on this site may direct you to third-party websites that are not affiliated with us. We are not responsible for examining or evaluating the privacy policies of these other websites. Please review carefully any third-party’s privacy policies and make sure you understand them before you engage in any transaction with the third-party. Questions regarding the third-party’s privacy policies should be directed to the third-party.
Our Site does not address anyone under the age of 18 (“Children”).
We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Children has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Information from children under 18 without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers or replace it with the Personal Information of the Children’s parent or guardian.
Protecting your privacy and your information is a top priority. We have taken reasonable measures to secure both your information and our physical premises. We exercise reasonable care in providing safe transmission of your information from your PC to our servers (unless sent by a means outside of our control, such as e-mail). However, we cannot guaranty that our measures will completely bar unauthorized access to your information, and by using the Site you assume this risk.
