Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

The Disobedient Dietitian understands the importance of your personal privacy. Therefore,

we have created this Privacy Policy so that you know how we use and disclose your information

when you make it available to us. The Privacy Policy below discloses our practices regarding

information collection and usage website located at thedisobedientdietitian.com, the related mobile

website, and the mobile application (collectively, the “Websites”) and the service provided

thereon (the “Service”).

 

By using or accessing the Websites and the Service, you signify your agreement to be bound by

this Privacy Policy. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY YOU MAY NOT

ACCESS OR OTHERWISE USE OUR SERVICE OR PARTICIPA­­TE IN OUR SERVICES.

Key aspects of our privacy practices described in this Privacy Policy include the following

explanations:

• The information we collect and why we collect it;

• How we use that information;

• How we share information; and

• The choices we offer.

 

Personally Identifiable Information That We Collect:

We may ask you for, or you may voluntarily submit, personally identifiable information when you

are using the Service. The personally identifiable information which you may provide to us could

include, but is not limited to:

· Your name

· Your contact information (including, without limitation, address and email address);

· Your IP address; and

· Other personal information.

 

Non-Personal Or Aggregate Information That We Collect:

When you access our Service, we may automatically collect non-personally identifiable

information from you, such as IP host address, web pages viewed, browser type, operating

system, referring service, search information, device type, page views, usage and browsing

habits on the Service and similar data. We may also aggregate demographic information

collected from our users (such as the number of users in a particular geographical location) in a

manner which does not identify any one individual. We may also aggregate information

collected offline in connection with the Service, obtain non-personally identifiable information

from third party sources and develop aggregate information by anonymizing previously collected

personally identifiable information.

 

It is possible at times when collecting non-personally identifiable information through automatic

means that we may unintentionally collect or receive personally identifiable information that is

mixed in with the non-personally identifiable information. While we will make reasonable efforts

to prevent such incidental data collection, the possibility still exists. If you believe that we have

inadvertently collected your personal information, please notify us at amber@thedisobedientdietitian.com

 

Information Usage:

We will only use your personally identifiable information as described below, unless you have

specifically consented to another type of use, either at the time the personally identifiable

information is collected from you or through some other form of consent from you or notification

to you:

·We may share your personally identifiable information collected in connection with providing

the Service.

·We may use your personally identifiable information to respond to your inquires or requests.

·We may use your personally identifiable information to send you emails from time to time

about our services, but we will not provide your personally identifiable information to third parties

for them to contact you directly unless otherwise permitted by this Privacy Policy or you provide

your consent.

·We may share your personally identifiable information with third parties (collectively, the “Third

Party Vendors”) to further the purpose for which you provided such information to us. For

example, we may share your information with Elastic Email, for the purpose of sending emails.

We urge you to read the privacy practices of all of our Third Party Vendors before

submitting any personally identifiable information through the Service.

·We may disclose personally identifiable information as required by law or legal process.

·We may disclose personally identifiable information to investigate suspected fraud, harassment

or other violations of any law, rule or regulation, or the terms or policies for our services or our

sponsors.

·We may transfer your personally identifiable information in connection with the sale or merger

or change of control of The Disobedient Dietitian or the division responsible for the services with

which your personally identifiable information is associated.

·We may share your personally identifiable information with an affiliate of The Disobedient

Dietitian who is in the same corporate family as us as long as their privacy practices are

substantially similar to ours.

Non-personally identifiable or aggregate information may be used by us for any purposes

permitted by law and may be shared with any number of parties, provided that such information

shall not specifically identify you.

 

Cookies and Similar Technologies:

“Cookies” are pieces of information that may be placed on your computer by a service for the

purpose of facilitating and enhancing your communication and interaction with that service.

Many services use cookies for these purposes. We may use cookies (and similar items such as

clear gifs, web beacons, tags, etc.) on our Service to customize your visit and for other

purposes to make your visit more convenient or to enable us to enhance our Service. We may

also use and place cookies (and similar items) on your computer from our third party service

providers in connection with the Service, such as an analytics provider that helps us manage

and analyze Service usage, as described more fully below. In addition, our advertisers and

business partners may set cookies and similar items on your computer when you use our

Service. You may stop or restrict the placement of cookies on your computer or flush them from

your browser by adjusting your web browser preferences, in which case you may still use our

Service, but it may interfere with some of its functionality. Cookies and similar items are not

used by us to automatically retrieve personally identifiable information from your computer

without your knowledge.

 

If you delete your cookies, change browsers or use a different cookie, our cookie (or an opt-out

cookie) may no longer work and you will have to reinput (or opt-out) again.

 

Analytics and Conversion Tracking:

We may use analytics services that use cookies, javascript and similar technologies to help us

analyze how users use the Service. The information generated by these services about your

use of the Service (including your IP address or a truncated version of your IP address) is

transmitted to and stored by analytics service providers on their servers. Those service

providers will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your, and other users’, use of

the Service, compiling reports for us on website activity and providing other services relating to

website activity and Internet usage.

 

We may collect information about your computer, including your IP address, operating system

and browser type, for system administration and in order to create reports. This is statistical

data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.

For example, we use cookies on our site for Google Analytics (the “Analytics Service”). The

Analytics Service is a web-based analytics tool that helps website owners understand how

visitors engage with their website. The Analytics Service customers can view a variety of reports

about how visitors interact with their website so that they can improve it.

 

Like many services, the Analytics Service uses first-party cookies to track visitor interactions as

in our case, where they are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We then

use the information to compile reports and to help us improve our site.

 

Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. These cookies are

used to store information, such as the time that the current visit occurred, whether the visitor

has been to the site before and what site referred the visitor to the web page.

 

The Analytics Service collects information anonymously. They report website trends without

identifying individual visitors. You can opt out of the Analytics Service without affecting how you

visit our site. For more information on opting out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all

websites you use, visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

 

We may also use Google conversion tracking and/or similar services to help us understand your

and other users’ use of the Service.

 

Automatically Collected Information:

When you access the Service or open one of our HTML emails, we may automatically record

certain information from your system by using cookies and other types of tracking technologies.

This "automatically collected" information may include Internet Protocol address ("IP Address"),

 

a unique user ID, device type, device identifiers, browser types and language, referring and exit

pages, platform type, version of software installed, system type, the content and pages that you

access on the Service, the number of clicks, the amount of time spent on pages, the dates and

times that you visit the Service, and other similar information. Depending on the law of your

country of residence, your IP address may legally be considered personally identifiable information.

 

Security:

The security of your personally identifiable information is very important to us. When we collect

your personally identifiable information online, we use reasonable efforts to protect it from

unauthorized access. However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot

guarantee that your personally identifiable information will be completely free from unauthorized

access by third parties such as hackers and your use of our Service demonstrates your

assumption of this risk. We have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial

procedures to safeguard the information we collect. Only those employees who need access to

your information in order to perform their duties are authorized to have access to your

personally identifiable information. For more information on protecting your privacy, please visit

www.ftc.gov/privacy.

 

Your Disclosures In Blogs And Other Social Media:

You should be aware that personally identifiable information which you voluntarily include and

transmit online on the Service or in a publicly accessible blog, chat room, social media platform

or otherwise online, or that you share in an open forum such as an in-person panel or survey,

may be viewed and used by others without any restrictions. We are unable to control such uses

of your personally identifiable information, and by using the Service or any other online services

you assume the risk that the personally identifiable information provided by you may be viewed

and used by third parties for any number of purposes.

 

If you login to the Websites and/or Service through your Facebook account, connect to a third

party service such as Facebook or Twitter through an icon or link on the Service or otherwise

link your The Disobedient Dietitian account with a third party service, we may share the contents

of your post and associated information (such as your user name, the fact that your connection

originated from the Service, and other relevant usage and diagnostic information) with such third

party. With your one-time consent, we may also send information about the content you watch

and your activities on the Service to such third parties. Once such information is shared, the use

of your information will be subject to that service's privacy policy and this Privacy Policy will not

apply.

 

Protection for Children:

We generally do not collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13.

If at any time in the future we plan to collect personally identifiable information from children

under 13, such collection and use, to the extent applicable, shall, when required, be done in

compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and appropriate

consent from the child’s parent or guardian will be sought where required by COPPA. When we

become aware that personally identifiable information from a child under 13 has been collected

without such child’s parent or guardian’s consent, we will use all reasonable efforts to delete

such information from our database.

 

Other Services:

As a convenience to you, we may provide links to third-party Services from within our Service.

We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these third-party sites. When you

link away from our Service, you do so at your own risk.

 

Changes to this Privacy Policy:

We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions from this

Privacy Policy at any time. However, if at any time in the future we plan to use personally

identifiable information in a way that materially differs from this Privacy Policy, including sharing

such information with more third parties, we will post such changes here and provide you the

opportunity to opt-out of such differing uses. Your continued use of the Service and our

services following the posting of any changes to this Privacy Policy means you accept such

changes.

 

Opt-Out Process:

All unsubscribe or opt-out requests may be made by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the

bottom of the relevant email. We will process your request within a reasonable time after

receipt. However, we are not responsible for, and in some cases we are incapable of, removing

your personally identifiable information from the lists of any third party who has previously been

provided your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy or your consent. You should

contact such third parties directly. If you would like to update or correct any personally

identifiable information that you have provided to us, please email us at The Disobedient

Dietitian and once we confirm your information, we will update such information within a

reasonable amount of time.
