"Personal information" means information that identifies you or could be used to identify you and which is submitted to and/or collected by the Winners Nutrition Web Site. Examples of personal information include your name, your postal address, your e-mail address and your telephone number.
How does Winners Nutrition collect information online?
Winners Nutrition may collect information in two ways:
1) Personal Information You Submit:
Winners Nutrition collects personal information that you enter into any data fields on the Winners Nutrition Web Site. For example, you may submit your name, postal address, e-mail address, and/or other information in order to receive information about various subjects, register for Winners Nutrition programs, contact Winners Nutrition customer service, or respond to Winners Nutrition surveys. To protect your privacy, you should not provide Winners Nutrition with any information that is not specifically requested.
2) Passive Collection of Unidentifiable Information:
The Winners Nutrition Web Site may collect information about your visits to the Winners Nutrition Web Site without you actively submitting such information. Unidentifiable information may be collected using various technologies, such as cookies, and web beacons. Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your computer's hard disk by a Web site. Web beacons (also referred to as GIF files, pixels or Internet tags) help Winners Nutrition recognize a unique cookie on your browser. Your Internet browser automatically transmits to Winners Nutrition Web Sites some of this unidentifiable information, such as the URL of the Web site you just visited and the browser version your computer is operating. Passive information collection technologies can make your use of the Winners Nutrition Web Site easier by allowing Winners Nutrition to provide better service, customize the Winners Nutrition Web Site based on consumer preferences, compile statistics, analyze trends, and otherwise administer and improve the Winners Nutrition Web Site. Certain features of the Winners Nutrition Web Site may not work without use of passive information collection technologies. Information collected by these technologies cannot be used to identify you without additional identifiable information and Winners Nutrition will not connect additional identifiable information with information collected through the use of such tracking technologies. With respect to limiting or disabling tracking technology please see the below "What choices do I have about how Winners Nutrition collects and uses personal information about me?".
In what circumstances and for what purposes might Winners Nutrition collect and use personal information?
Winners Nutrition may use the personal information you provide through the Winners Nutrition Web Site to respond to your questions and to provide you with efficient customer service. After you have entered personal information into a form or data field on the Winners Nutrition Web Site, Winners Nutrition may use certain identifying technologies to allow the Winners Nutrition Web Site to "remember" your personal preferences, such as sections of that Winners Nutrition Web Site that you visit frequently and, if you choose, your user ID. We will only use your personal information for other business purposes, such as to offer you the opportunity to receive notices regarding Winners Nutrition's products or services, to invite you to participate in surveys about our products, or to notify you about special promotions if you provided us with your prior opt-in consent for such purposes.
Does Winners Nutrition consolidate personal information?
Winners Nutrition may consolidate the personal information of customers who use the Winners Nutrition Web Site. In addition, we may consolidate information in a non-identifiable form (aggregate/anonymous data) to help us better design Winners Nutrition Web Sites and Winners Nutrition products, to enhance our research activities, and to facilitate other business functions. Winners Nutrition may share aggregated anonymous information about customers who use the Winners Nutrition Web Site with its affiliates, partners and other third parties.
What choices do I have about how Winners Nutrition collects and uses personal information about me?
You may always limit the amount and type of personal information that Winners Nutrition receives about you by choosing not to enter any personal information into forms or data fields on the Winners Nutrition Web Site. Some online services can only be provided to you if you provide us with appropriate personal information. Other parts of the Winners Nutrition Web Site may ask whether you wish to opt into our contact lists for offers, promotions and additional services that may be of interest to you.
You may also be provided with preference questions or preference boxes allowing you to indicate that you do not want the Winners Nutrition Web Site to use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to "remember" your personal information, such as user IDs or mailing addresses, on return visits. However, the Winners Nutrition Web Site does not generally provide you with the ability to opt out of the tracking technologies. Some Internet browsers allow you to limit or disable the use of tracking technologies that collect unidentifiable information.
Who will have access to personal information about me?
Personal information can be accessed by a restricted number of Winners Nutrition employees, by certain companies with which Winners Nutrition may conduct joint programs, and by third parties with whom Winners Nutrition contracts to carry out business activities for Winners Nutrition. We train our employees about the importance of privacy and how to handle and manage customer data appropriately and securely. Also, it is Winners Nutrition's practice to seek your consent where required by applicable law if you are registering for a program which is conducted in conjunction with another company that may require access to your personal information. In addition, Winners Nutrition's practice is to require its contractors to keep your personal information confidential and to use your personal information only to perform functions for Winners Nutrition.
Winners Nutrition may transfer your personal information to a country other than your own. Personal information stored in another jurisdiction is subject to the laws of that country and these laws may not provide the same protections as the country where you reside. For example, personal information that is transferred to and stored in the U.S. may be available to the U.S. government or its agencies under a lawful order made in that country.
Does Winners Nutrition share personal information with third parties?
Except as otherwise stated in this section, Winners Nutrition will not transfer your personal information to third parties unless you have been provided with an opportunity to opt into this disclosure. Winners Nutrition may disclose your personal information without your opt-in to third party service providers which assist us with our business activities. It is Winners Nutrition's practice to require such third party service providers to keep personal information confidential and to use personal information only to perform functions for Winners Nutrition and in accordance with Winners Nutrition's instructions. Winners Nutrition further reserves the right to disclose your personal information to respond to authorized information requests from government authorities or when otherwise required by law. In the event Winners Nutrition sells one of its product lines or divisions, Winners Nutrition will only transfer your personal information to the buyer subject to your consent where required by applicable law so that the buyer can continue to provide you with information and services.
