Privacy Policy

This Policy describes the information we collect from you, how we use that information and our legal basis for doing so. It also covers whether and how that information may be shared and your rights and choices regarding the information you provide to us.

This Privacy Policy applies to the information that we obtain through your use of the Dieting Mag website.

Your privacy is very important to us. At Dieting Mag we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

Like most website operators, Dieting Mag collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Dieting Mag’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Dieting Mag’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Dieting Mag may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Dieting Mag also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Dieting Mag only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Dieting Mag’s websites choose to interact with Dieting Mag in ways that require Dieting Mag to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Dieting Mag gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive Dieting Mag updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Dieting Mag collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Dieting Mag. Dieting Mag does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Dieting Mag discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Dieting Mag’s behalf or to provide services available at Dieting Mag’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Dieting Mag’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Dieting Mag will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Dieting Mag discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Dieting Mag believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Dieting Mag, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Dieting Mag website and have supplied your email address, Dieting Mag may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Dieting Mag and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Dieting Mag takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
