We collect two types of information: personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information.

Personally Identifiable Information
Personally identifiable information is information that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you ("Personally Identifiable Information"). Such Personally Identifiable Information may include your name, address, email address and date of birth. We request Personally Identifiable Information from you when you use our service. We will collect Personally Identifiable Information from you only if you voluntarily submit such information to us.

To provide you with the services we render, we will sell, license, trade or rent your Personally Identifiable Information to third party sellers (as defined below) who will contact you to provide you with services you request through our Website. By way of example, if you choose to receive further information regarding a weight-loss or nutrition service as a result of your responses to our survey, then we will share your Personally Identifiable Information with such third party sellers so that they may contact you directly. Other than as specified in this Privacy Policy, your Personally Identifiable Information will not be disclosed.

You do not have to provide us with any Personally Identifiable Information to visit our Website. However, if you choose to withhold requested information, you will not be able to receive valuable medical and health information from third party sellers that is dependent upon the collection of such information.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information
When you use our Website or in connection with the services we may make available on our Website from time to time, we may also collect information that by itself cannot be used to identify or contact you, such as demographic information (like age or gender) and health information (like weight and body mass index ("BMI")) ("Non-Personally Identifiable Information"). Non-Personally Identifiable Information may also include user IP addresses, browser type, domain names, and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of our Website. Non-Personally Identifiable Information is used to help us understand who uses our Website, how our Website is used, and to improve and market our Website in general and our service in particular.

Information from Other Sources
