Through third-party referral program operators and others, we offer referral programs

themselves can only access information such as data relating to the number of

program operators for the purpose of administering our referral programs. Should you
become a referral website of ours through one of our third-party program operators, any
information you provide to them is subject to their privacy policies.
We collect information, some of which may be Personally Identifiable Information, that
you voluntarily provide to us when you choose to use some of our Online Products
(available either for free or on a paid or subscription basis). We also collect information

Products may ask you for health-related information. We collect this information in order
to personalize your online experience.

software application needed to utilize the Handheld Products on your handheld device
(the “Application”). During the installation of the Application and subsequent
synchronizations, we collect information concerning your device (such as the specific
type of operating system and hardware you have, and the amount of free and total
memory) and the Application’s files on your device.

from you certain Personally Identifiable Information about your friend such as your

DO WE COLLECT INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE?
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. Our Website and Online
Products are not designed for or directed to children under the age of 13. We do not
collect Personally Identifiable Information from any person we actually know is under
the age of 13. We urge all parents or guardians to participate in their children’s
exploration of the Internet, and to teach their children about protecting their
personally identifiable information while online.

Products to help us understand who uses our Website and Online Products and how
they are used, to personalize your experience, to assist you in using our Online
Products, to improve our Website and Online Products, and for billing purposes, if
applicable. With respect to our Handheld Products, for example, we may use such
information, among other things, to ensure that your handheld device is supported and
that it has enough room for the Application, and to confirm which versions of the
Application’s files are installed on your device. If you become a registered User of our
Website or subscribe to one of our Online Products, we may use your information to
send you a welcoming email that may confirm your username. If you “opt-in” (for
example, if you check a box, or if the box is pre-checked, you do not opt out by
unchecking the box) we may send you electronic newsletters, contact you about Diet
Typing Systems, LLC products, services, information and news that may be of interest
to you, and provide you with targeted feedback. If you no longer desire to receive these

comments for future reference. We may also use the information collected to contact
you about important service announcements and updates regarding our Website or
Online Products or, if you are a subscriber, about your billing account status. You will
not be able to opt-out of these service announcements and updates as they contain
important information relevant to your use of our Website and/or our Online Products
and are not promotional in nature. (If you do not wish to receive these service
announcements, you may cancel your account with us and delete the Personally
Identifiable Information maintained about you on our systems by contacting our Privacy
Coordinator at the address set out below.)
In addition, we may use your information to contact you about Diet Typing System, LLC
products, services, information and news that may be of interest to you by postal mail,

relating to nutrition, weight-loss, behavior, and fitness, or to evaluate and improve our
Online Products. We may link some of this information to Personally Identifiable
Information for internal purposes only or to assist you in your personal efforts.
