Information You Provide to Us
We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, we collect information when you subscribe to our emails or social media notifications, post on our forums or blogs, participate in surveys or polls, communicate with us via third party social media sites, request customer support, or communicate with us through the websites.
The types of information we may collect include personal information, inclusive of but not limited to your first and last name, email address, zip code/post code, billing address, shipping address, phone, product preferences, demographic information including gender, education, occupation, photo, and any other information you choose to provide. It also may include sensitive information, such as health and dietary information.

We and our service providers automatically collect certain information about you when you access or use our websites. This information may include demographic information; IP address; browser/device/hardware type; operating system characteristics; information about your use of our websites; and data regarding network connected hardware (e.g., computer or mobile device), such as unique device identifiers, type, model, version, MAC address, device or session ID, error related data status, capability, confirmation, functionality, performance data, and connection type. This information may also include clickstream data, which is information about the page-by-page paths you take as you browse through the websites. The methods that we and our service providers may use to automatically collect such information include:
Log Information: We collect information about your use of our websites, such as the type of browser you use, access times, pages viewed, your IP address and the referring link through which you accessed our websites.
Cookies: Cookies are data files that are placed on a computer when it is used to visit a website. These cookies may be used for many purposes, including, without limitation, tracking user preferences or web pages visited while using our websites. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually set your browser to remove or reject cookies, but note that doing so does not necessarily affect third party flash cookies used in connection with our websites. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of our websites.
Web Beacons: We may include small graphic images called web beacons, also known as “Internet tags” or “clear gifs,” in our web pages and email messages. We may use web beacons or similar technologies for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count the number of visitors to our Service, to monitor how users navigate the websites, and to count how many emails that we sent were actually opened or how many particular articles or links were actually viewed.
Embedded Scripts: An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the websites. It is temporarily downloaded onto your computer from our web server or a third party with whom we work, is active only while you are connected to the websites, and is deleted or deactivated thereafter. Location-identifying Technologies: We may use GPS (global positioning systems) software and other location-based technologies to locate you so we may verify your location, and deliver relevant content to you based on your location.
Information we automatically collect about you, such as how you interact with our websites, may be combined with your personal information. If we associate any such automatically-collected information with personal information about you, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information.

Users Outside the United States
Your California Privacy Rights
California law permits customers in California to request certain details about how their information is shared with third parties and, in some cases, affiliates, for those third parties’ and affiliates’ own direct marketing purposes. Under the law, a business must either provide this information or permit California customers to opt in to, or opt out of, this type of sharing. We may from time to time elect to share certain information about you collected by us on the websites with third parties or affiliates for those third parties’ or affiliates’ own direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident, you may opt out of such future sharing and/or request information about our compliance with this law by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that we are only required to respond to one request per customer each year, and we are not required to respond to requests made by means other than through this email address or mail address.
We take reasonable steps to have physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in place to help protect your Personal Information. This may include, in appropriate circumstances, use of Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information collected through our Service.
