Information we collect and What we do with your Personally Identifiable Information

It is always up to you whether to disclose personally identifiable information to us, although if you elect not to do so, we reserve the right not to register you as a user or provide you with any products or services. “Personally identifiable information” means information that can be used to identify you as an individual, such as, for example:

  • your name, company, email address, phone number, billing address, and shipping address
  • your FAB14NUTRITION user ID and password (if applicable)
  • credit card information (if applicable)
  • any account-preference information you provide us
  • your computer’s domain name and IP address, indicating where your computer is located on the Internet
  • session data for your login session, so that our computer can ‘talk’ to yours while you are logged in
  • When you visit and navigate our site, click on third party links provided on our website, or open our emails, we collect technical information about your use of our site, including IP address, device identifier, and viewing information

 

If you do provide personally identifiable information to us, either directly or through a reseller or other business partner, we will:

  • not sell or rent it to a third party without your permission, although unless you opt out (see below), we may use your contact information to provide you with information we believe you need to know or may find useful, such as, for example, news about our services and products;
  • take commercially reasonable precautions to protect the information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction;
  • not use or disclose the information except:
    • as necessary to provide services or products you have ordered, such as, for example, by providing it to a carrier to deliver products you have ordered;
    • in other ways described in this privacy policy or to which you have otherwise consented;
    • in the aggregate with other information in such a way so that your identity cannot reasonably be determined, for example, statistical compilations;
    • as required by law, for example, in response to a subpoena or search warrant;
    • to outside auditors who have agreed to keep the information confidential;
    • to a successor organization in the event of a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, or other sale or disposition of all or a portion of FAB14NUTRITION’ The successor organization’s use and disclosure of your personally identifiable information will continue to be subject to this privacy policy unless (i) a court orders otherwise, for example a bankruptcy court; or (ii) the successor organization gives you notice that your personally identifiable information will be subject to the successor organization’s own privacy policy, along with an opportunity for you to opt out, which may cause you not to be able to continue to use www.fab14nutrition.com. If you submit personally identifiable information after such a transfer, that information may be subject to the successor entity’s privacy policy;
    • as necessary to protect the rights, safety, or property of FAB14NUTRITION, its users, or others; this may include, for example, exchanging information with other organizations for fraud protection and/or risk reduction.

Although we have the above data security safeguards in place, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our services, and you do so at your own risk.

 

Other information we collect

We may collect other information that cannot be readily used to identify you, such as, for example, the domain name and IP address of your computer. We may use this information, individually or in the aggregate, for technical administration of our Web site(s); research and development; customer and account administration; and to help us focus our marketing efforts more precisely.

 

How We Collect Your Information

Direct Collection

We collect much of the information listed above directly from you when you submit it on our website. If you do not want to share this type of information, you can choose not to participate in a particular service or activity.

 

Indirect Collection

As part of offering and providing customizable and personalized services, many websites, likes ours, use cookies and other online tracking technologies to store and sometimes track information about you.

 

Technologies We Use

 

Cookies

FAB14NUTRITION uses “cookies” to store personal data on your computer. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to login a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Our digital marketing partners (third parties) may use cookies to collect or receive information from our websites and use that information to provide measurement services and targeted ads. We may also link information stored on your computer in cookies with personal data about specific individuals stored on our servers. If you set up your Web browser, for example, Internet Explorer or Firefox, so that cookies are not allowed, you might not be able to use some or all of the features of our Web site(s).  You may opt-out of cookie placement through your browser settings; however, doing so, may limit your user experience.

 

Analytics:

  • Google Analytics:

Google Analytics is a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. Google utilizes user data such as browser and computer settings like screen resolution, operating system and cookies that track whether a user is a returning visitor to track and examine the use of this website, to prepare reports on the user’s activities and share them with other Google services. Google may use the data collected to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. The data collected by Google Analytics does not contain any information that personally identifies you (“personally identifiable information”). Click here to review the Google privacy policy.

    • User ID for Google Analytics:

Google Analytics makes use of a feature called “User ID.” This setup allows for a more accurate tracking of users by associating that user with the same ID over various sessions and devices. It is set up in a way that does not allow Google to personally identify an individual or permanently identify a particular device. The User ID extension might make it possible to connect data from Google Analytics with other data about the user collected through this website. The opt-out link below will only opt you out for the device you are on, but not from tracking performed independently by the Owner.

    • You can opt-out of having your activity on the website made available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout) for your web browser. The Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on provides visitors with the ability to prevent their data from being collected and used by Google Analytics. The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about visits activity. For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy & Terms web page: http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/

These cookies do not contain any personally identifiable information. If you’re interested in opting-out of Google’s use of cookies, please visit Google’s Ads Settings.

  • Facebook
    Facebook provides certain features and services, such as the Facebook Pixel, that allows sending data to Facebook, including actions (“Event Data”) that users take on functionalelements.com.  Facebook will use the Event Data received to provide FAB14NUTRITION with services such as insights about the effectiveness of Facebook ads, or create audiences for remarketing, and in accordance with Facebook’s Data Policy. Event Data will not be disclosed to other advertisers, unless Facebook is required to do so by law. Facebook will maintain the confidentiality and security of Event Data, including by maintaining technical and physical safeguards that are designed to: (a) protect the security and integrity of data while it is within Facebook’s systems; and (b) guard against the accidental or unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure of data within Facebook’s systems. If you wish to opt-out of Facebook tracking, please visit the following resources:

Information collected from children

You must be at least 13 years old to use the FAB14NUTRITION’ Web site and service(s). FAB14NUTRITION does not knowingly collect information from children under 13. By using this site, you represent that you are not under the age of 13.

 

Shopping Services

FAB14NUTRITION strives to offer its visitors a secure and safe environment for credit card purchases. Some of the shopping and fulfillment services offered on FAB14NUTRITION.COM may be operated by third party shopping partners.

They collect personally identifiable information necessary to accept, process and ship your ordered merchandise on behalf of FAB14NUTRITION to provide you with information you may request and updates on the status of your order, and to assist your purchasing experience. Our shopping partners collect personally identifiable information from you by “active” means, whereby you actively give our shopping partners, as FAB14NUTRITION.COM’s agents, that information when ordering merchandise.

Personally identifiable information entered into any of the FAB14NUTRITION.COM shopping services is used only to complete your transaction and never revealed to others or used by our shopping partners for any purpose not authorized by FAB14NUTRITION. Our shopping partners do not own the personally identifiable information they collect and provide such information only to FAB14NUTRITION (or its designee) and to the delivery services (e.g., the U.S. Postal Service and UPS) they use to deliver merchandise that you order from the FAB14NUTRITION.COM shopping services. However, as authorized by FAB14NUTRITION, our shopping partners will provide personally identifiable information in response to legitimate subpoenas or other appropriate law enforcement activities.

Credit card information provided to buy merchandise is used solely to determine that your card is valid, that sufficient credit is available to pay for the purchase and to apply the cost of your purchase to your card when the items are shipped. Credit card information you provide is transmitted across the Internet securely using encryption from your browser to our shopping partners’ secure order processing systems. Some versions of browsers and firewalls do not permit connection to secure servers. In such cases, you will not be able to connect to the server and therefore won’t be able to place an order through a secure connection. While no method is completely impenetrable, our shopping partners utilize state-of-the-art encryption technology used in e-commerce today. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, while our shopping partners are committed to protecting your personal information, they cannot entirely ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to them.

Please be aware that FAB14NUTRITION.COM advertisers or Web sites that have links on our Web site may collect personally identifiable information about you. The information practices of those Web sites linked to FAB14NUTRITION.COM are not covered by this privacy policy.

External Service Providers. There are a number of separate services offered by third parties that we refer to as external service providers that may be complimentary to your use of the Web site (e.g. merchandise providers, shipping, packaging). If you choose to use these separate services, disclose information to the external service providers, and/or grant them permission to collect information about you, then their use of your information is governed by their privacy policy. We do not disclose your personal information to external service providers unless you provide your explicit consent. With your consent we may provide some of your personal information to the external service provider offering such services, for your convenience. To prevent our disclosure of your personal information to an external service provider, you can decline such consent or simply not use their services. Because we do not control the privacy practices of these third parties, you should evaluate their practices before deciding to use their services. Users who register on a FAB14NUTRITION co-branded Web site grant FAB14NUTRITION permission to pass your email address back to that co-branded Web site. The use of your email address by the co-brand Web sites is limited by their applicable privacy policies.

Internal Service Providers for Our Operations. We may use third parties that we refer to as internal service providers to facilitate or outsource one or more aspects of the business, product and service operations that we provide to you and therefore we may provide some of your personal information directly to these internal service providers. These internal service providers are subject to confidentiality agreements with us and other legal restrictions that prohibit their use of the information we provide them for any other purpose except to facilitate the specific outsourced FAB14NUTRITION related operation, unless you have explicitly agreed or given your prior permission to them for additional uses. In some instances, the internal service provider may collect information directly from you (such as for FAB14NUTRITION surveys or for a co-branded credit card). In these cases, you will be notified of the involvement of the internal service provider, and all additional information you provide them and their additional uses will be strictly up to you. If you provide additional information to an internal service provider directly, then their use of your personal information is governed by their applicable privacy policy.

 

Changes to this privacy policy

We reserve the right to change this privacy policy as we deem necessary or appropriate because of legal compliance requirements or changes in our business practices. If you have provided us with an email address, we will endeavor to notify you, by email to that address, of any material change to how we will use personally identifiable information.
