Personal Information May Collect
FitnessTechPro collects two types of information from their users. One type of information is known as personally identifiable information, or PII for short. This information, as you can see from the term, can be used to identify you. We also collect non-personally identifiable information, or NPII. NPII cannot be used to identify you in any way.
We are very selective in terms of the data we collect, both in with respect to PII and NPII. We only collect data which is absolutely necessary.
As far as PII is concerned, what is generally considered to fall into this category are information such as home address, full name, birth date, SSN, phone number or email address.
NPII covers a wider range of user data. Some relates to the functionality of a website, such as the browser type you are using, or the device on which you accessed a website. Other NPII is related directly to your interaction with a website: time and date you accessed a page, time you exited, articles you read, how much time you spent reading each article, and what terms you looked up on a website. Lastly, some NPII is collected for marketing purposes. Information that can be used for marketing purposes are search history, demographic information such as gender, general location (country or continent) and age group.
We will discuss how each type of information is collected and how it is used in the following sections.
Personally Identifiable Information (PII) – How We Collect and Use It
Since PII is highly sensitive information, we rarely collect it. We never collect PII without your explicit consent, and we never collect it without your knowledge.
The only situation in which we may ask for PII is when you send us a message or leave a comment on one of our articles. In these cases, we will ask only for your name and email address. We require this information to reply to your message or comment, and to know who we are addressing. You have the possibility of using an alias, if you do not feel comfortable sharing your real name. Keep in mind comments section are public, and all users accessing the article will be able to view your name and the comment you left.
This is the only case in which we will ask for PII. If you have left a comment or sent a message, and would like to have your PII removed from our database, you can tell us to remove it by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will remove your PII in a maximum of 30 days from the moment we receive the request.
