Our approach to privacy
Children under 13 years of age
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") requires us to inform parents and legal guardians about how our site collects, uses and discloses personal information that is collected from children under the age of 13 who use the GetFitTN.com web site. COPPA also requires that we obtain consent of parents/guardians in order for children under 13 years of age to use certain features of the GetFitTN.com web site. Following is an explanation of how we comply with these COPPA requirements.
Children can view many features, photos and information and use some of the tools on the GetFitTn.com web site without providing any personal information. In order to use the FitnessTracker, which may result in children providing personal information, we request that children get their parent/legal guardian's permission. We do not ask any user to disclose any more information than is reasonably necessary to enable them to use the FitnessTracker tools and to ensure that our web site is in keeping with our user's needs. Below, we discuss the information that is collected and how it is handled for all users, regardless of age.
The information we collect and how we use it
To sign up for a membership, we ask for your name, your age category, your gender, your email address (or parent's email address for those under age 13), and your county of residence. This information is important for tracking your fitness progress against others who are in your age, gender or county category when entered into online fitness competitions.
If you enter health goals and health check-in information, we ask you for your weight and/or number of cigarettes smoked. This is used for you to track your progress against your weight or smoking cessation goals. We do not share this information with anyone—it is used only for your ability to track your own progress against goals you have set.
Occasionally, GetFitTN.com may aggregate a user's non-identifying information with the information from other users. This aggregated, non-identifying data may be disclosed to third parties, including but not limited to other GetFitTN.com users. By becoming a member of GetFitTN, you have authorized GetFitTN.com to use all data, including confidential medical data, provided to the website to achieve the purpose and goals of the program.
When you establish a FitnessTracker membership on the GetFitTN.com web site, we will send you a welcome email that will require you to click a link to activate your membership. We will also periodically send you emails with update information about the site or competitions you have entered. You can unsubscribe from these periodic emails by advising us through the email link titled "UNSUBSCRIBE" at the bottom of each email. If you are entered into a Team competition, your Team members have the ability to send you emails by clicking on your User Name in the Team Roster tab of the web site.
GetFitTN.com owns all Personal Information provided to it by individuals. When an individual provides Medical Information to the web site, the individual acknowledges his/her assignment of the right to use the data to the web site.
