B. Information Automatically Collected from You

When you access our website, some of your information is automatically collected to help us improve this website and its services.

This data is primarily used for Google Analytics, discussed in more detailed in Section II, Subsection B further down. Such data includes the following:

  • demographic details such as age and gender;
  • language and country of access;
  • browser, operating system, and service provider;
  • when the website was accessed, which parts were visited, and the referring web domain.

II. HOW YOUR INFORMATION IS USED

A. Advertising

This website collects user information for advertising purposes through Google AdSense, a program that allows a large number of publishers to serve advertisements in a variety of formats. This website serves Google AdSense advertisements in both its desktop and mobile formats. Google AdSense uses cookies, discussed in more detail under Section III, to serve users with relevant advertisements. For more information on this data and how it is used, please reference Google’s Partners Privacy Policy.

If you wish to opt out of personalized advertisements, you can visit Google’s Opt out of seeing personalized ads article. Please note that this opt out process uses your browser’s cookies, so if you clear or disable cookies and still wish to opt out of personalized advertisements, you may need to go through this process again. Also note that this process does not prevent your data from being automatically collected, but rather prevents your data from being used for personalized advertisements.

B. Analytics

This website collects user information for statistical analysis through Google Analytics. This tool tracks and reports user and usage trends in our website so we can continue to improve our service. For more information on this data and how it is used, please reference Google’s Partners Privacy Policy.

Google Analytics is a very widespread tool, and very useful for understanding a website’s audience. However, if you wish to opt out of Google Analytics, you can visit Google’s Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on article. Please note that this add-on does not prevent your data from being automatically collected, but rather prevents your data from being used by Google Analytics.

C. Commercial Affiliation

This website may contain Amazon Associate text-based or graphic-based advertisements linking to products or services. When you click on one of these links, some of your information is shared with this service.

D. Social Networks Interaction

This website features widgets for sharing content through Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, and Reddit.

III. COOKIES

Like almost all websites, this website uses cookies. Cookies are small files that contain information about your browsing activity, such as which pages you visit. Health and Fitness History does not use cookies to identify you personally, but rather for the tools such as applications listed under Section II. As such, we only analyze cookies as cumulative data. You are free to disable cookies in your browser’s settings at any time, though doing so may affect your experience on certain websites. Disabling cookies should not significantly affect your experience on this website in particular, however.

IV. CHILDREN

We do not intentionally collect personally identifiable information from users known to be under 13 years of age. As detailed above in Section I, Subsection A, if a user contacts us, we will only use that information to respond to them regarding the reason they contacted us, regardless of age. If a parent or guardian finds out that a child under 13 years of age has provided us with personally identifiable information, they should notify us via our contact form.

V. THIRD PARTIES

This website includes some material that may link to other websites, including, but not limited to, advertisements, widgets, and text-based links. Please note that these websites have their own privacy policies that will apply when using their respective services.

We are not responsible for the collection or use of your information by any third party.

VI. SECURITY
