Personal Information We Collect
Information We Collect Automatically -- To maintain and improve the Website, we also automatically gather some statistical data when you visit. The exact information we collect may vary but can include the date and time of access to the Website, the Internet Protocol (IP) address of a computer requesting a page, the pages requested, computer and connection information such as device and browser type and operating system. We also may collect information about your mobile device and internet connection, including the device's unique device identifier or MAC address, IP address, operating system, web browser type, mobile network information, and the device's telephone number. We do not associate this statistical information with your personally identifiable information that we otherwise collect. We may use third party analytics providers to help us understand and use this statistical data.
Account Creation, Subscriptions and Order Fulfillment - In order to buy products available on the Website and/or subscription to certain dotFIT.com’s programs, you must create an account on the Website. In order to do so, we collect your first and last name, email address and mailing address to open an account. You also will be asked to choose a unique username and password to access your account and make purchases online. When you make a purchase, we also request your daytime phone number, shipping address, and financial information (credit card type, number, expiration date and billing address) to complete and ship your order to you. We use this information only to complete the transaction, to provide you with an order history and to facilitate future orders. We may also use information about the transaction for aggregate reporting (where we summarize the data in a report that does not contain your personal information). If you are a Licensee seeking to make purchases online, we may also ask for identifying information that will enable us to process your orders.
All payments are processed by a third-party payment processor. We do not collect or have access to your payment information. The collection and treatment of your personal information by these payment processors is governed by their privacy policies.
Individualized Programs – We offer individualized programs via the Website to our users to, for example, help them reach their nutritional and fitness goals. Users will be asked to complete questionnaires regarding their medical history and physical activity readiness, which responses will be used by dotFIT to generate an individualized program for the user with recommended supplements and nutritional products based on their goals and completed questionnaires. These questionnaires include personal information, including personal medical and health information.
dotFIT “Elite” Program – Professional trainers may participate in a program by which they earn a commission on dotFIT products they recommend and sell to clients, family and friends. We collect certain personal information regarding these “Elite” trainers, including their contact information and their Social Security Number (which is stored in an encrypted database) to process payment of any earned commissions.
Accessing the Website -- In order to obtain access to certain portions of the Website, we may ask you to provide certain personal information to enable us to distinguish you from other users. Certain other areas of the site may ask for additional information on your habits or health to provide a requested product or service.

The following is a description of the types of cookies used on the Website:
- Strictly Necessary Cookies: These cookies are strictly necessary to provide the Website. For example, they are used to authenticate and identify returning users. You cannot opt out of these cookies.
- Performance and Functionality Cookies: These cookies provide statistical information on site usage, such as web analytics. They also help us to personalize and enhance your online experience.
- Advertising Cookies: These cookies are used to create profiles or personalize content to serve you interest-based advertisements that we think are most relevant to you. These cookies and resettable device identifiers use information about your use of this and other Website and apps, your response to ads and emails, and to deliver ads that are more relevant to you.
Some of these cookies may be active only during the time you are viewing a website (“session cookies”). Other cookies may remain on your computer after you have closed your browser or turned off your computer (“persistent cookies”). However, we do not use tracking cookies on other websites.
Online advertisers may download cookies onto your compute or other device, or use other technology like web beacons, to enable them to recognize your computer or other device each time they send you an advertisement, even when you are visiting another website. As a result, the advertiser would have the ability to deliver interest-based advertisements that they believe would be of most interest to you. We do not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed on your computer by third-party advertisers. Note, however, that the Website does not include any third-party advertising.
In some instances, you can opt-out of receiving interest-based online ads from us, third party advertisers and ad networks. Advertisers and ad networks that are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or who follow the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising provide opt-out choices at the following Website:
- NAI Website: (https://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1)
- DAA Website (https://optout.aboutads.info/?c=2&lang=EN)
Be advised that these opt-out tools are provided by third parties and may not be available with respect to all interest-based advertising that is presented to you. We do not control or operate these tools or the choices that advertisers and others provide through these tools. Even if you opt out of receiving interest-based advertising, you may still receive generic ads.
Also, we may use web beacons, pixel tags, log files, or other technologies to automatically collect certain information when you use our services or interact with our emails and online or mobile advertisements. At this time, however, we do not otherwise engage in interest-based online advertising.
We use Google Analytics to collect information regarding usage of the Website and help us to manage and improve it. Google provides a Browser Add-On that allows you to opt-out by downloading and installing the add-on for your web browser, available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
Accessing Your Personal Information
We will make reasonable efforts to ensure your personal information is accurate and complete and we will update or correct your information as needed when notified by you. If you would like to request access to your personal information, request to verify your personal information, confirm the accuracy of our personal information, or change your personal information in any way, please contact us at: privacy@dotFIT.com. You can also request that we delete your personal information. However, deleting your information may result in your not being able to access some or all of our services.
Security and Retention
dotFIT has implemented commercially reasonable precautions to protect users’ personal information. When users submit information via the Website, your information is protected both online and offline. We use industry standard practices to protect your information, such as encryption, firewalls and other technologies. We use a third-party cloud provider to host the Website, which they maintain in a secure environment. Also, we have implemented SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption technology to further protect any sensitive personal information you provide (including personal medical and health information) and your interactions with the Website and regularly test our security.
Please be aware though that, despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and we cannot guarantee “perfect security.” Any personal or other information you send us through any means is transmitted at your own risk.
Account holders are advised not to share your account login information or password with anyone. We cannot be responsible for a data breach or other incident if your password is used by unauthorized persons.
We will retain your personal information for as long as needed or permitted in light of the purpose(s) for which it was obtained and consistent with applicable law. The criteria we use to determine our retention periods include:
- The length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide the requested services to you (for example, for as long as you have an account with us or keep using our Website);
- Whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject (for example, certain laws require us to keep records of your transactions for a certain period of time before we can delete them); or
- Whether retention is advisable in light of our legal position (such as in regard to applicable statutes of limitations, litigation or regulatory investigations).

dotFIT and our Website are located and hosted in the United States (US) and governed by US law. If you are outside the United States when you visit the Website or engage in communications with us via mail, email or telephone, please be aware that your personal information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States.

Your Choices and Rights
However, it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to us from our system.
