“Processing” means using data collected on a computer, a tablet, or a hand-held device and manipulating this information in any way, including but not limited to, collecting, storing, deleting, using, combining and disclosing information.
Types of Information Collected
The Personal Information we gather includes:
• Registration Information: Personal information at the time that you register with FitMyLife. The information we collect when you register includes information about your age, gender, height, weight, body fat percentage, how much you exercise, what types of exercise you prefer, your level of competence with resistance exercise, your level of competence as a cook, and any medical issues that might prevent you from safely performing the exercises we prescribe.
• Food Ingested: We log information about what you eat. For instance, we log how many calories you consume, at what times, and the distribution of macronutrients and micronutrients you consume. Logging this information helps us understand how your body responds to different types of food and also how it responds to either a deficit or an excess of calories ingested.
• Calories Burned: We log information about what physical exercises you perform. When we do this, we differentiate between resistance exercise (strength training) and cardiovascular exercise. We also capture information about activities you perform in your ordinary work day that are not strictly speaking prescribed physical exercise.
• Analytics Information: Additional information we gather about you comes through mathematical modeling of your data. We deduce from mathematical models, information about how many calories you require to sustain your weight, how you process different macronutrients, and how you burn calories through exercise.
• Test Data: We also gather test information that helps you monitor your progress toward your goals.
• Personal Credentials: We may collect data about your e-mail address, password, what operating system you use, and your browser type.
• Third-party Device and Application Data: We gather information from the fitness tracking device, a calorie counting application, and an application you may use to assess body fat percentage.
• Social Networking Data: We may also gather information related to social networking. For instance, whether you join a team, follow a personal trainer, follow a nutritionist, what dates and times you share information with other users, or how much information you share with your contacts. This information helps us understand what motivates you to stick to a prescribed diet and exercise regime.
• Billing Information: For paid services, we retain financial information such as your credit or debit card number and other billing information related to products you choose from our product portfolio.
• Geographic and Device Data: We may retain information about your geographic location and other information from and about devices you use to access our Services.
