If you make a purchase or place an order through or in connection with a Digital Service, we use your payment card information (e.g., your card number and expiration date) for limited purposes such as to process your transaction (including recurring payments, if applicable), to provide you with the requested products or services and for the purposes described under the section “To protect our rights or the rights of others” below.

With respect to information other than your payment card information, we use that information:

·         Interest-based advertising (also known as targeted or personalized advertising or ads) is advertising based on your interests as inferred from your activities over time on the Digital Services and online services operated by third parties, as well as information from other sources, including information collected offline. Interest-based ads may consist of text ads, images, animations or videos and may be displayed to you based on various factors, including the context of the site or app in which they appear (e.g., sport or travel section), information you provided to the operator of the site or app (e.g., when you created an account), your activities on the site or app (e.g., pages viewed, searches performed or ads clicked), and information such as your demographic, interests and household information.

·         On the Digital Services and on third-party sites, apps, or other media, we, our service providers and third parties may use automated means to (a) collect information for interest-based advertising purposes or (b) serve you interest-based ads. These automated means vary depending on the Digital Services and include technologies such as cookies, web beacons, tags, scripts, pixels, local shared objects (including HTML5 cookies) and SDKs. These technologies may use unique identifiers associated with your browser or device to support interest-based advertising.

·         Cross-device linking. If you access the Digital Services from multiple browsers or devices, we, our service providers and third parties may try to establish connections among and link the different browsers and devices you use to access the Digital Services and our content or ads published elsewhere. This helps us provide you with a seamless experience across the browsers and devices you use and serve you with more relevant content and ads (e.g., so that we don’t show you the same article twice). See section Website (Browser) Opt-Outs for steps you can take to limit browser and mobile app tracking for interest-based advertising purposes.

·         Right to opt out of sales.  We may share your personal information with third parties in ways that may constitute a “sale” under CCPA. You may request that we not “sell” your personal information on a going forward basis. To do so, please complete the Do Not Sell My Personal Information form available at https://fit1media.com/ccpa-contact-form and include your name, email address, California postal address as well as your subscription account number, if you have an active subscription, and credit card information, if selecting the U.S. Ads Free option.  You may also exercise your right by calling 919-925-2200.  If you re-engage with us after opting out of the “sale” of your personal information, such as by ordering a new subscription, buying a product, signing up for a newsletter and/or entering a sweepstakes or contest you acknowledge that your personal information may be used and shared in accordance with this Privacy Notice, including in ways that may constitute a “sale” under CCPA. 

·         Right to be free from discrimination. You may exercise any of the above rights without fear of being discriminated against. We are permitted to provide a different price or rate to you if the difference is directly related to the value provided to you by your data.

We use the information you provide to make your CCPA rights requests to verify your identity, locate the personal information we may hold about you and act upon your request. We strongly recommend that you submit the email and postal address that you used when you created accounts, ordered subscriptions, or signed up for a newsletter.  After you submit a CCPA rights request, you will be required to verify access to the email address you submitted.  You will receive an email with a follow-up link to complete your email verification process.  You are required to verify your email in order for us to proceed with your CCPA rights requests.  Please check your spam or junk folder in case you can’t see the verification email in your inbox.  If you are a California resident and have any questions regarding your CCPA rights under this Privacy Notice, please contact us at 919-925-2200.

For any of the CCPA rights, you may designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf. In the request, you or your authorized agent must provide information sufficient for us to verify the identity of your agent and that your agent has been properly authorized to act on your behalf;  this may take additional time to fulfill your request. If you are an authorized agent working on behalf of a consumer, you will need to fill out the relevant CCPA request form listed above on behalf of the consumer with the consumer’s information. Please note that the consumer you are working on behalf of must have a California postal address and will need to verify access to the email account used to submit the CCPA request in order for us to move forward with processing the request.

O. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR EUROPEAN VISITORS

In order to address our legal obligations in Europe (including the UK), Fit1Media LLC provides the following additional information for Europe-based visitors to Fit1Media LLC U.S. Digital Services.

Who is Responsible for Your Information?

If you use or interact with a Fit1Media LLCDigital Service, then the data controller will be Fit1Media LLC. The contact details for this entity are provided in the “Contact Us” section above.

Legal Bases for Using Your Information

We process personal information for different purposes (as described in the “How We Use Information We Obtain” section, above) on the following legal bases:

To perform our contractual obligations to you. We and our service providers process your information to perform our contractual obligations to you when we use your information to provide you with the Digital Services and related content, products, or services and to communicate with you. For example, when you purchase a subscription from us, we process your payment and contact information as necessary to confirm the subscription and we process your contact information and other details to provide you with support services you request. We also send you informational communications on this basis, including to confirm a subscription or to notify you of a change to a Digital Service. Failure to provide requested information could prevent or delay the fulfilment of our contractual obligations.

To pursue our legitimate interests. We process your information to meet our legitimate interests when we use your information to provide you with the Digital Services and related content, products, or services, to communicate with you and for our advertising and marketing purposes. For example, our legitimate interests include making improvements to, customizing and understanding how you interact with the Digital Services and related content, products or services, and sending you communications about products and services we think may be of interest to you. To accomplish our legitimate interests, we may share your information with our affiliates and subsidiaries, service providers and business partners (including for our advertising and marketing purposes) and in the context of a corporate transaction. We maintain safeguards to protect the information we process to pursue our legitimate interests.

To comply with our legal obligations. We process and share your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations when we use your information to protect our rights or the rights of others and when we share your information with other parties where required by law or as necessary to protect our rights. For example, we are required to collect certain information from you when processing your subscription payment for tax or financial reporting reasons.

With your consent. We obtain your consent to process your information when we are required to do so by law. If consent is the legal basis on which we process your personal information, you can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us using the information provided in the “Contact Us” section above.

Your Rights Over Your Information

In certain circumstances, you have a right to access or object to the use of personal information held about you (including in relation to direct marketing). You can also ask us to rectify, update, erase, restrict or to share your information in a usable format with another company. Such requests are subject to applicable law.

We encourage you to contact us to update or correct your information if it changes or if the personal information we hold about you is inaccurate.

If you would like to discuss or exercise such rights, please contact us at info@fit1media.com. We will contact you if we need additional information from you in order to honor your requests.

Storing Your Information

We will keep your personal information for as long as we have a relationship with you. Once our relationship with you has come to an end, we will retain your personal information for a period of time that enables us to:

·         Maintain business records for analysis, understanding market trends and/or audit purposes and to improve the Digital Services.

·         Comply with record retention requirements under applicable laws or other relevant legal or regulatory requirements.

·         Defend, establish, exercise, or bring any existing or potential legal claims.

·         Carry out fraud detection and prevention.

·         Deal with any complaints regarding the Digital Services, our products, and services.

We will delete your personal information when it is no longer required for these purposes. If there is any information that we are unable, for technical reasons, to delete from our systems, we will put in place appropriate measures to prevent any further processing or use of the data.

International Data Transfers

Information collected through the Digital Services will be processed in and subject to the laws of the United States, which may not provide the same level of protection for your personal information as your home country.

For more information on these safeguards, please  contact us at the details provided in the “Contact Us” section above. We participate in the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield frameworks.  Read our Privacy Shield Statement to learn more.

Changes to the Privacy Notice

Where changes to this Privacy Notice have a fundamental impact on the nature of the processing or otherwise have a substantial impact on you, we will give you advanced notice so that you have the opportunity to exercise your rights (e.g. to object to the processing).

Privacy Officer and Complaints

Our Privacy Officer can be contacted at info@fit1media.com.

We are committed to working with you to obtain a fair resolution in the event you have a complaint or concern about privacy. If, however, you believe that we have not been able to assist with your complaint or concern, you have the right to make a complaint to a data protection authority.

The Digital Services include Content that is derived in whole or in part from content or materials supplied and owned by Fit1Media LLC, Fit1Media’s licensors or third parties. As between Fit1Media LLC and you, Fit1Media LLC owns all right, title and interest in and to the copyrights, trademarks, service marks, trade names, patents and all other intellectual and proprietary rights throughout the world associated with the Digital Services and Content except, if applicable, with respect to your User Content (as defined below).

Nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to convey to you any right, title, or interest into such intellectual and proprietary property rights or to the Digital Services or Content, or to any portion thereof, except for the limited rights expressly granted herein.

You may not either directly or through the use of any computer, tablet, phone, or other device (each a “Device”) or other means (including the use of a browser, software, program, or code), remove, alter, interfere with or circumvent

         (i) any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary notices marked on the Digital Services or Content, or     (ii) any digital rights management mechanism, device, or other content protection or access control

               measure associated with the Digital Services or Content.

You may NOT modify, make derivative works of, disassemble, reverse compile or reverse engineer any part of the Digital Services (including any code used in any software) or Content.

You may NOT either directly or through the use of a Device or other means copy, download, stream, reproduce, duplicate, archive, distribute, upload, publish, modify, translate, broadcast, perform, display, sell, transmit or retransmit the Digital Services or Content unless expressly permitted by Fit1Media LLC in writing.

You may not knowingly or intentionally take any action that may impose an unreasonable burden or load on the Digital Services or its servers and infrastructures.

You may NOT build a business, in whole or in part, resell, redistribute, recirculate or make any other commercial use of, or create derivative works or materials utilizing any portion of the Digital Services (including any code used in any software) or Content, whether or not for profit.

To the extent we make the Digital Services or Content available to you via a widget, embedded player or other technology that allows you to embed or stream Content on or to another online service, you may not modify, enhance, remove, interfere with, or otherwise alter in any way any portion of such technology, any digital rights management mechanism, device, or other content protection or access control measure associated with Content.

You are prohibited from disabling, modifying, interfering with, or otherwise circumventing any technology to view the Digital Services or Content without:

         (i) displaying visibly both Content and all surrounding elements

“User Content” means any and all information and content that a user submits to, or uses with, the Digital Services (e.g., photos, audio, video, messages, text, files, or other content you provide us), except any Feedback. You are solely responsible for your User Content. User Content may include unsolicited or invited submissions. You assume all risks associated with use of your User Content, including any reliance on its accuracy, completeness or usefulness by others, or any disclosure of your User Content that makes you or any third party personally identifiable. You may not state or imply that your User Content is in any way provided, sponsored, or endorsed by Fit1Media LLC. Because you alone are responsible for your User Content (including backing up your data), you may expose yourself to liability.

Your interactions with other users of the Digital Services are solely between you and such users.
