As used in this policy, the terms "using" and "processing" information include using cookies on a computer, subjecting the information to statistical or other analysis and using or handling information in any way, including, but not limited to collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and transferring information within our organization or among our affiliates within the United States.
1. Information Collection and Use
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Site, our Services, features and content, and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Site.
2. Personally Identifiable Information
When you register with us through the Site and become a HealthysALifestyle.com User, when you choose to post or reserve a listing, or when you contact a HealthysALifestyle.com User using the “Message” feature of the Site, we will collect personally identifiable information. This refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you ("Identity Information"). Identity Information includes, but is not limited to, your name, phone number, email address and home postal address, but does not include your credit card number or billing information. In order to process some of your transactions through the Site, we may also ask for your credit card number and billing information ("Billing Information") (Identity Information and Billing Information together, "Personal Information"). However, if the address of a listing you post matches that of your credit card billing address, that address would be considered Identity Information.
We also collect the other information that you provide as part of registration and the administration and personalization of your profile webpage (e.g., without limitation, zip code (on its own) and individual preferences or demographic information) ("Non-Identifying Information"). Non-Identifying Information includes Personal Information that we aggregate or otherwise render anonymous.
We use your Personal Information (in some cases, in conjunction with your Non-Identifying Information) mainly to provide the Service, complete your transactions, and administer your inquiries. We may use your Personal Information (and disclose it to third parties) to verify your identity, derive other information about you, for fraud prevention, to enforce the terms of the Terms of Service and otherwise protect the integrity of our Site or Service, or to verify other information you provided to us or included in your profile, including for example any associations, certifications, or other attributes of your profile. We may also verify your profile information through other means.
We may also use your Personal Information to contact you with HealthysALifestyle.com newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications. (See "Changing or Deleting Information," below.) Please note that we may also use your Personal Information to contact you with information related to your use of the Service; you may not opt out of these notifications.
If you are a Chef or Trainer, we share with Site Visitors and Registered Users the following information that is included in your profile: your first name, your last name, city, state, zip code, profile picture, headline, About Me, Highlighted Profile (if subscribed), your gender, specialties, goals, certifications, recipes/workouts, images, videos, calendar and cancellation policy. We also share on Chef and Trainer profiles ratings and reviews other users have written about you. We do not share your email, phone number and street address. If you are a Member, we share with Site Visitors and Registered Users the following information that is included in your profile: your first name, your last name, city, state, zip code, profile picture, headline, About Me, your gender, goals, recipes/workouts, images and videos. We do not share your email, phone number and street address. With certain exceptions, you choose how much detail you want to include in your profile; the more information you share, however, the better your chance of success on the site. If you are a Chef, Trainer or Member you will appear in search result listings if you match the search criteria used by a Chef, Trainer or Member, as applicable.
We may display personal testimonials of Registered Users and other endorsements on our Site or in other marking materials. These testimonials or endorsements may include Personal Information such as the Registered User's first name, last name, city and state.
If we terminate your registration for any reason, we reserve the right to send a notice of your termination to other Users with whom we believe you have corresponded.
We also share Personal Information with vendors who perform services on behalf of HealthysALifestyle.com, including without limitation vendors who provide email services, demographic information, or geo-location information, vendors who perform verification checks, vendors who process credit card payments, and vendors who run classified advertising businesses, in each case to the extent applicable. HealthysALifestyle.com has selected vendors who maintain high standards with respect to privacy and agree to use the Personal Information only to perform specific services on behalf of HealthysALifestyle.com.
In an effort to further facilitate the ability for Chefs, Trainers and Members to find each other, selected information contained in Users’ profiles, which may include photo, first name, last name, city, state, and description, may also be shared with third party search engines and other vendors who run classified advertising businesses, and thus may be listed in third party web site search results (e.g., Google and other public search engines), which would make that information available to the public and allow them to link to your HealthysALifestyle.com profile.
You acknowledge and agree that we may disclose information we've collected about you if required to do so by law or if we, in our sole discretion, believe that disclosure is reasonable to comply with the law, requests or orders from law enforcement, or any legal process (whether or not such disclosure is required by applicable law), or to protect or defend HealthysALifestyle.com's, or a third party's, rights or property. We may also reserve the right to disclose information we've collected about you for purposes of protecting the health and safety of our community and Registered Users, such as in the case of risk of harm or violence against any person (including you).
You acknowledge and agree that to the maximum extent permitted by law we may disclose any of the information we've collected about you to any of our affiliates or subsidiaries, for the purposes of providing you with the Services, operating the Site, and our other commercial purposes.
We also may share your Personal Information with a third party if you consent to the sharing.
We may use and disclose your Identity Information to third parties for advertising and promotional purposes, but never for directing marketing purposes without your consent. (See Section 13, below, for more information regarding such use and disclosures to third parties.)

We also use this information to verify that visitors to the Site meet the criteria required to process their requests. We do not treat Log Data as Personal Information or use it in association with other Personal Information, though we may aggregate, analyze and evaluate such information for the same purposes as stated above regarding other Non-Identifying Information.

As part of the Service, HealthysALifestyle.com Registered Users may communicate with other HealthysALifestyle.com Registered Users through use of the "Message" feature on the site. Your use of the “Message” feature (or any other messaging feature) of the Site is subject to the Terms of Service. We have the right, but not the obligation, to review, save, edit, decline to transmit, and otherwise use such messages, including their contents, in our sole discretion. YOUR USE OF THE “MESSAGE” OR ANY OTHER MESSAGING FEATURE OF THE SITE CONSTITUTES BOTH YOUR ACKNOWLEDGEMENT THAT MESSAGES SENT USING THESE FEATURES ARE NOT PRIVATE, AND YOUR CONSENT FOR US TO REVIEW, SAVE, EDIT, DECLINE TO TRANSMIT, AND OTHERWISE USE THE MESSAGES OR THEIR CONTENTS OR DISCLOSE THEIR CONTENTS TO THIRD PARTIES, IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION.

10. Information Sharing and Disclosure
HealthysALifestyle.com is designed to allow Registered Users who teach cooking (“Chefs”), Registered Users who teach fitness (“Trainers”), and Registered Users who are seeking Chefs and/or Trainers (“Members”) to share information with one another in order to facilitate arranging appointments. Listings posted by Chefs and Trainers, ratings and reviews of Chefs and Trainers, and the Profile Information (as defined below) of Chefs, Trainers and Members are visible to any visitor to the site. If a Chef or Trainer and a Member enter into a transaction with one another (the Member requests the Chef or Trainer, and the Member's payment details have been verified), then that Chef or Trainer could have access to that Member’s street address, if that Member chooses to use it. In no event is a Member’s Billing Information shared with their Chef or Trainer.
If you post any of your information to a public area of our Service, please be aware that it is no longer Personal Information for the purposes of this policy, and we or anyone else may use such information without restriction. If you provide access to Personal Information or other information, including your email address or name, to a limited set of other users through any of our privacy controls or other settings, please understand that HealthysALifestyle.com has no control over how others may collect, use, or disclose such information.
11. HealthysALifestyle.com Registered Users and Site Visitors
When you register through the Site and submit your Personal Information to create a profile webpage, HealthysALifestyle.com Registered Users and Site Visitors will see your first name and last name (as a “Member”) and city, state and zip (as a “Chef” or “Trainer”) ("Required Registered User Identifiers"). You can choose what other Personal Information you provide as part of your profile ("Other Registered User Information") (together, your "Profile Information"), which Registered Users and Site Visitors will also see. We will display your Profile Information in your profile page, elsewhere on the Site, and on third party sites (e.g., through the use of a HealthysALifestyle.com HTML "widget" or API). With certain exceptions, you choose how much detail you want to include in your profile. Any information you choose to provide as part of your profile should reflect how much you want other HealthysALifestyle.com Registered Users and Site Visitors to know about you. We recommend that you guard your anonymity and sensitive information and we encourage Registered Users to think carefully about what information about themselves they disclose in their profile pages. You can review and revise your profile information at any time.
If you post a listing, we may publish that listing anywhere on the Site and may enable third parties to publish your listing on their site through the use of an HTML "widget". We may also display the geographical location of your listing in the form of a map so that users can see the general area and neighborhood of your listing, but your actual street address will not be disclosed. As a Member, if you enter into a transaction with a Chef or Trainer (that is, you request an appointment with a Chef or Trainer and your payment method has been verified) that Chef or Trainer could have access to your street address if you choose to use it. Note that Users (i.e. Site Visitors and Registered Users) will never have access to your Billing Information.
12. Aggregate Information and Non-Identifying Information
We may share aggregated information that does not include Personal Information and we may otherwise share or disclose Non-Identifying Information and Log Data with our advertisers and other third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other purposes. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your Personal Information, unless such Personal Information is Non-Identifying Information.
In general, we use the Non Identifying Information we collect to help us improve our Services and customize the user experience, such as by providing targeted useful features and promotions based on the type of Service you seek. We also aggregate the information collected via cookies and similar technologies to use in statistical analysis to help us track trends and analyze patterns in the use of HealthysALifestyle.com.
13. Third Party Service Providers
We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate, advertise and promote our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Site-related services (e.g., without limitation, maintenance services, database management, web analytics and improvement of the Site's features) or to assist us in analyzing how our Site and Service are used. These third parties may have access to your Personal Information; if they do, this access is only so that they may perform these tasks on our behalf and they are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
14. Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement
HealthysALifestyle.com cooperates with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of HealthysALifestyle.com or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, in the event of a dispute, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, any illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.

If you wish to deactivate your account, please send us a request at support@HealthysALifestyle.com. We will remove your name and other Personal Information from our publicly viewable database. We have no obligation to retain your information, and may delete any or all of your account information without liability.

HealthysALifestyle.com may also retain and use your information if necessary to provide the Services to other Registered Users. For example, just as an email you may send to another person through an email service provider resides in that person's inbox even after you delete it from your sent files or close your account, messages you send to others through HealthysALifestyle.com, as well as your contributions to HealthysALifestyle.com, may remain visible to others after you have closed your account. Similarly, other information you have shared with others, or that others have copied, may also remain visible. HealthysALifestyle.com disclaims any liability in relation to the deletion or retention (subject to the terms herein) of information or any obligation not to delete the information. HealthysALifestyle.com does not control when search engines update their search index or cache, which may contain certain profile or other information that has since been removed from HealthysALifestyle.com's Site.
We have put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. HealthysALifestyle.com uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer), the industry standard method for computers to communicate securely without risk of manipulation or recipient impersonation. We utilize SSL in the online registration process, in the login process, and in the account management section of the Site.
Your user accounts are also protected by the password you use to access your online account with HealthysALifestyle.com, and we urge you to take steps to keep your password safe.

After you have finished using our Site, you should log out of your HealthysALifestyle.com account and exit your browser.
No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can contact us at support@HealthysALifestyle.com.
We will attempt to make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored "personal data" (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting on this Site, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
WE TAKE THESE PRECAUTIONS IN AN EFFORT TO PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION AGAINST SECURITY BREACHES. HOWEVER, THIS IS NOT A GUARANTEE THAT SUCH INFORMATION MAY NOT BE ACCESSED, DISCLOSED, ALTERED, OR DESTROYED. BY USING OUR SITE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO ASSUME THESE RISKS.
18. Links to Other Sites
Our Site contains links to other websites that we believe may be of interest to our Users. If you choose to click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party's website. The fact that we link to a website is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you.
