1. Personal Information Collection and Use
2. Types of Personal Information We Collect
2.1 Information You Provide to Us
Much of the Personal Information we receive comes directly from you when you use this Web Site or make written submission or otherwise contribute content. We may collect Personal Information when you register on, log on, or visit our Web Site, including when you participate in activities on our Web Site. Or you may provide Personal Information when you ask to receive materials, services or information. Our rules regarding content submissions by you are described in the Terms of Service and Use.
Our Web Site may offer public forums, including but not limited to, message boards, conversation pages, chat rooms, blogs or profile pages (“Public Forums”). If you provide personal information through the Public Forums, that information may be publicly posted through the Public Forums, may be used by others and otherwise disclosed without limitation as to its use by a third party. We do not control or have responsibility for the acts of users of our Web Site.
We also may collect information about you through a variety of methods, such as your participation in games, quizzes, contests, blogs, forums or the like or other documents that you submit to us, transactions in which you may engage with us or our affiliated companies, or through visits that you may make to the Web Site. This policy applies to all personal information that we collect and maintain about our users, including any contact information (e.g., name and address), or identifying information (e.g., date of birth) that we may obtain in connection with providing services. You may view or change your information at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2.2 Additional Information
Should a health article be published, we may also publish your first name, last initial, age and your photograph (with posting guidelines), if you include them with your health article submissions, and display them on our Web Site. If you activate the mobile phone options, if and when offered, under our Terms of Service and Use, we will collect your cellular phone number and name of service provider. You will receive notifications on your cellular phone account. If you contact us by e-mails though the Web Site, we may keep a record of your contact information and correspondence, and may use your e-mails address, and any information that you provide to us to respond to you.
2.3 Log Data and Other Information Collected Through Technology
We collect information through technology to make our Web Site is more interesting and useful to you and for various purposes related to our business. When you visit the Web Site, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website ("Log Data"). For instance, when you come to our Web Site, we may collect information about your access time and your computer configuration, including the type of browser software you use, the operating system that you're running, the resolution of your computer monitor, the web-pages you visit, the search terms you use, any advertisements on which you click, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address.
Your IP address is a number that is used by computers connected to the Internet to identify your computer so that data (such as the web pages you request) can be sent to you. Your IP address does not tell us who you are. An IP address is associated with the access point through which you enter the Internet, and is typically controlled by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), or your school or university. For most users accessing the Internet from an Internet service provider, the IP address will be different every time you log on.
We use Log Data to monitor the use of the Web Site and of our services. We do not associate your IP address with any other Personal Information to identify you personally, except in case of violation of the Terms of Service
2.5 Disclaimer About Links and Third Parties
2.6 Personal Profiles
Personal Profiles: When you use BodiMojo you may set up your personal profile, form relationships, send messages, perform searches and queries, form groups, set up events, add applications, and transmit information through various channels. We collect this information so that we can provide you the service and offer personalized features. Once you update your profile your previous personal information will not be saved . So certain information, such as messages and freindlists are kept in your profile unless you delete this information. When you update information we do not keep backup copy of the prior version.
We may use your Personal Information in many ways as set out below. We may use your Personal Information to generate aggregated statistical information. But such aggregated information will exclude your Personal Information. We describe our uses of your information below. You may "opt out" of certain uses of your Personally Identifiable Information, as described in Section 4 below.
3.1 Promotional Uses
From time to time, we offer information about third-party goods and services. At that time we would also offer you the choice of receiving that information or not, in the form of an "opt in" or "opt out." If you "opt in," we may then use your Personal Information to send you promotional materials about third parties' goods and services (including special offers and promotions) offered by us or our affiliates (“Promotional Uses”). These promotional materials may be sent to you by e-mail or text message. You may opt out of receiving these communications by indicating so in your profile page as provided in Section 4 below.
When you log on to our Web Site, you may receive targeted advertisements, which means an advertisement aimed at the type of individual who may be within a relevant audience. In this process, the advertiser never has access to Personally Identifiable Information. This kind of advertisement targeting is done with banner ads as well as promotional e-mail on the Web Site. You will only receive special offers via e-mail from us if you have indicated in your account preferences that you would like to receive them. You can change your account preferences at any time.
3.2 Operational Uses
We may also use your Personal Information for many purposes other than sending you promotional materials. (We refer to all of these types of uses of your Personal information that do not involve the sending of promotional materials as "Operational Uses.") For example, we may use your information to complete transactions requested by you (such as your submission of content to the Web Site, or requesting a product or service offered on our Web Site), or to send you administrative communications either about your account with us or about features of our Web Site or products ordered by you.
We work with certain third parties to perform functions and provide services to us, relating to our business, including, without limitation, hosting and maintenance, customer relationship, customer service, database storage and management, and direct marketing campaigns. We may provide your personal information to agents or service providers acting on our behalf for limited purposes. For example, we may share personal information with our agents or service providers to send you an email on our behalf. These third parties are authorized to use your personal information only to perform the service they are providing for us.
We do not share, sell, rent or trade Personal Information that is personally identifiable to you with third parties for their promotional purposes. Because these uses of your Personal Information do not involve sending you promotional materials and may be necessary to fulfill you account with us, your opt-outs under Section 4 below will not apply to any of these Operational Uses.
We may take your Personal Information and make it non-personally identifiable, either by combining it with information about other individuals (aggregating your information with information about other individuals), or by removing characteristics that make the information personally identifiable to you (de-personalizing your information). We use non-personally identifiable information in aggregate form to build higher quality, more useful services by performing statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our users, and by measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas of the Web Site. We may provide statistical information based on this data to advertisers, affiliates, researchers, clients, and other current and potential business partners.

If you have decided to opt in and then change your mind there are three separate choices available to you, by which you can opt out, which appear in the following places:; (a) by logging on our Web Site, and going to a site's Privacy Setting tab in your “My Page” (sometimes called "Profile"), and following the opt-out directions (e.g., by unchecking the box that allows you to have third party notifications; (b) within an e-mail, following a link to ”Unsubscribe”; and (c) as described below in Section 6.

5. Security Measures Taken to Safeguard Your Personal Information
Your Personal Information is kept on a secure server to protect it from outside parties. We use standard, industry-wide procedures such as firewalls and encryption to protect your information. However, as effective as encryption technology is, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply won't be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. From time to time, we review our security procedures in order to consider appropriate new technology and methods. Please be aware though that, despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable and no software or server is 100% secure. Any information you include in a message you post to any message board, discussion group, or other public posting area on our Web Site is available to anyone with Internet access. If you don't want people to know your name or e-mail address, for example, make sure not to include it in any message you post publicly. Please see our Terms of Service and Use for more information related to posting materials on our sites, including our use of such materials.
