Privacy Policy




Your privacy is very important to us. We want to make your experience on the Internet as enjoyable and rewarding as possible, and we want you to use the Internet with complete confidence.

We have created this Privacy Policy to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy and security. This Privacy Policy describes how Running & Weight Loss collects information from all end users of our Internet services (visitors, email subscribers, and customers), what we do with the information we collect, and the choices you have concerning the collection and use of such information.

1. Consent for Collection, Use and Disclosure

Your use of the Running & Weight Loss site and/or your registration for Running & Weight Loss products and services constitute your consent to the terms of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Running & Weight Loss site.

Running & Weight Loss may occasionally update this Privacy Policy. When it does, Running & Weight Loss will also revise the “Last Updated” date at the bottom of this Privacy Policy. In addition, Running & Weight Loss will seek a customer’s prior consent, by email, for any new uses or proposed disclosures of information collected from the customer prior to the change. Running & Weight Loss will notify customers by email of changes to this policy that will affect information collected from them in the future. In certain circumstances, however, Running & Weight Loss will not inform and obtain the consent of the customer, such as in connection with an investigation of a breach of an agreement, contravention of laws, an emergency where the life, health or security of an individual is threatened, the collection of a debt or in compliance with the request of a law enforcement agency or a court order.

A customer may withdraw his or her consent for collection, use and disclosure at any time by sending an email to info@runningandweightloss.com. When you unsubscribe, if you fall within the guarantee period for any Running & Weight Loss product and you request a refund, the guarantee will be honoured.

2. Accountability

Running & Weight Loss collects, at the time of your registration and your sign-on to its web site, certain “personal information” (information that personally identifies you) including but not limited to your name, email address, home or work address, telephone number, and information about your computer hardware and software (e.g. IP address, operating system, browser type, domain name, URL, access times, and referring web site addresses).

Running & Weight Loss has implemented this Privacy Policy to protect personal information received from its customers, and to respond to any inquiries. The Privacy Policy also provides that Running & Weight Loss will use appropriate contractual means to establish a comparable level of protection for personal information which is sent for processing by third parties on Running & Weight Loss’ behalf.

Running & Weight Loss has designated responsibility for your personal information to the Site Owner, who ensures compliance with the principles in this Privacy Policy. Other Running & Weight Loss individuals may be delegated to act on behalf of the Site Owner.

3. Purposes for Collecting Personal Information

Running & Weight Loss also uses personal information in an aggregate form (i.e. not individually attributable to you) for its business analysis, operational, marketing and other promotional purposes.

If we hire other companies to provide some products or services on our behalf, then we will only provide those companies the personal information they need for the Identified Purposes, and we will limit their rights to use and further disclose your personal information as appropriate in the course of their work for us.

4. Limiting the Collection of Personal Information

Running & Weight Loss limits its collection of personal information to only that information which is necessary for the Identified Purposes. Running & Weight Loss does not direct its site to, nor does it knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of thirteen.

When you visit the Running & Weight Loss web site, a cookie may be placed on your computer or the cookie may be read if you have visited the Running & Weight Loss site previously. Running & Weight Loss uses cookies to allow us to determine which products and services you have already purchased so that we do not provide redundant information to you, and, if you are a Running & Weight Loss affiliate, to track Running & Weight Loss sales made to customers referred by you so that you can receive compensation under our affiliate program. If you choose to not have your browser accept cookies from the Running & Weight Loss web site, you may not be able to view all the text on the screens, or to experience a personalised visit, or to subscribe to certain service and product offerings on the Running & Weight Loss site.

5. Disclosure, Processing and Retention

Running & Weight Loss does not sell, rent or disclose your personal information to anyone else, except:

(a) to someone you have designated to act as your agent, for one or more of the Identified Purposes (listed in Section 2, above);

(b) to Running & Weight Loss’ employees, independent contractors, subsidiaries, affiliates, consultants, business associates, service providers, suppliers and agents, acting on Running & Weight Loss’ behalf for any of the Identified Purposes;

(c) as necessary if Running & Weight Loss has reason to believe that disclosure is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference (either intentionally or unintentionally) with Running & Weight Loss’ rights or property, other users of Running & Weight Loss’ web site, products or services, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities; and

(d) to respond to judicial process and provide information to law enforcement agencies or in connection with an investigation on matters related to public safety, as permitted by law, or otherwise as required by law.

In addition, as we continue to develop our business, we or our affiliates may sell or buy other businesses or entities, or we may merge with another company. In such transactions, personal information may be one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that Running & Weight Loss or substantially all of its assets are acquired, your personal information may be one of the transferred assets.

Your information may be stored and processed in the United Kingdom, United States, or in any other country in which Running & Weight Loss or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities. By using this web site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.

After your account becomes inactive (that is, if you request to be removed from our database), Running & Weight Loss will keep your personal information in its archives. Your information will then be used only as necessary for tax reasons or to prove Running & Weight Loss’ compliance with any applicable law.

6. Accuracy of Personal Information

Running & Weight Loss will use reasonable efforts to keep customer personal information accurate for the Identified Purposes, and for minimising the possibility of making inappropriate customer decisions based on such information. Customers are responsible for informing Running & Weight Loss about changes to their personal information. You can do this by sending an email to Running & Weight Loss. Running & Weight Loss will use new or updated personal information it receives from customers to update its own records.

7. Security Safeguards

Running & Weight Loss will use reasonable efforts to protect customers’ personal information.

8. Access to Personal Information

Running & Weight Loss will afford you a reasonable opportunity to review the personal information in your file, if you so request by writing to:

Running & Weight Loss
22 Tredis Close
Barnsley, South Yorkshire, S71 2AL
England

… or upon request to the Site Owner.

If Running & Weight Loss is not able to provide access to some aspect of a customer’s personal information, it will provide reasons for denying access such as; that by doing so would likely reveal personal information about a third party, or that it is confidential commercial information or attorney-client privileged communications, or that the information relates to a breach of an agreement or a contravention of law, or that its disclosure could reasonably be expected to threaten the life or security of another individual.

Customers have the right to request that inaccurate or incomplete information be amended as appropriate, by contacting Running & Weight Loss or the Site Owner as described above. Running & Weight Loss will promptly correct such personal information.
