This Privacy Statement sets out our privacy policy and explains what we do with the personal information that we collect from you. Please read the following to understand our practices regarding personal information and how they affect you as you use our features and services. This statement discloses our current privacy practices; if we make material changes to these practices, we will announce them. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this statement, you should contact us at info@champsdiet.com.

What information does the ChampsDiet.com gather about you?

The ChampsDiet.com collects information about our customers and web users so that we can provide a more interesting and useful service, as well as more appropriate advertising. We ask for your name, email address, and other personal information when you register to use certain features of our web site, or if you sign up for special or personalized services, such as our email newsletters. We also may ask for this information at other times, such as when you enter contests or other promotions sponsored by the ChampsDiet.com and/or our partners. We sometimes conduct surveys as well, although you do not have to respond to them.

We collect IP addresses for site security and to help us understand how people use our sites so that we can improve our sites and our users' respective experiences. For similar quality reasons, we use a feature known as a "cookie." Cookies contain bits of information that websites transfer to your computer's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies can make the Web more convenient by storing information about your preferences on a site. Although we may assign your browser a cookie, the cookie does not tell us who you are. Only you can tell us that. We discuss cookies later in this Privacy Statement.

When you place an order for a product or service, we need to know the sort of information typically used for credit card transactions, such as your name, mailing and billing addresses, telephone number, and credit card number and expiration date. Gathering this information allows us to process and fulfil your order and notify you of your order status. We will also use your information to contact you regarding your order if necessary. We encrypt all of this information using Secure Socket Layers (SSL) technology.

We may also collect your email address when you submit content to our sites (for example, a contest entry, or a review of a product). Unless we get your approval, we will not display your address with your submission.

Besides cookies, we may also use tiny electronic images (called "single-pixel GIFs" or "Web beacons"), which allow us to count users who have visited specific pages or access certain cookies.

We may use single-pixel GIFs in the following ways:

To count and recognize users.
To conduct research on behalf of some partners on their websites, and for auditing purposes.
To determine aggregate information about users, including demographic and usage information.
To determine which email messages were opened and/or acted upon when we send HTML-formatted email messages (messages resembling web pages that include graphics).

Advertising networks that serve ads on our site may also use single-pixel GIFs in their advertisements. In general, any electronic image viewed as part of a web page, including an ad banner, can act as a web beacon.

How does the ChampsDiet.com use your personal information?

The ChampsDiet.com collects personal information to provide you, the user, with the best and most personalized experience possible, and to provide our advertisers with an efficient way to reach the right audience. In short, by knowing a little about you, the ChampsDiet.com can deliver more relevant content and advertisements to you.

We conduct research on our users' demographics, interests, and behaviour based upon the information you provide us when you register or participate in contests or other promotions on our site, or based upon the information on our server log files. This research is compiled and analysed on an aggregated basis. We may also notify you of products, services, or areas of our site that we think may interest you based on the information we've received. If you would prefer us not to contact you for these purposes, send us an email at info@champsdiet.com and let us know.

In addition to helping us process your order, we use the information we collect from you when you buy a product or service from us so that we can provide you with an enhanced, more personalized shopping experience. We will also send you occasional discount alerts and notices about products and services that we think may interest you. If you would prefer us not to send you those notices, again, simply send us and email at info@champsdiet.com to let us know.

How do we use "IP addresses" and "cookies"?

IP addresses

Your web browser or email application automatically provides your Internet Protocol address ("IP address") to other computers with which you communicate over the internet, so that they know where to send you information.

We receive an IP address each time you view one of our web pages, because the browser automatically reports it to us. We also may store the IP address when you register with the ChampsDiet.com, post a message, or buy something from us.

We may use IP addresses for various purposes, including:

Diagnosing service or technology problems.
Assessing and maintaining system security.
Displaying the most appropriate advertising or content.
Studying how people use our site and how we can improve it.
Reporting to advertisers about aggregate, but not individual, information derived from IP addresses.

Cookies

Cookies may be used on our sites in the following ways:

We may use cookies to access your stored account information automatically when you log on to our site, in order to deliver a better and more personalized service.

We may use cookies to estimate our audience size and usage patterns. The unique cookie that is given to each browser accessing our website is then used to determine usage patterns.

We may use cookies to allow you to access your account information automatically, as well as make changes to your personal information.

Our search engines may use cookies to expedite your search for content or products.

Most browsers are set up to accept cookies, but you can configure yours to refuse cookies or notify you when you've received one. Browsers differ, so check your "Help" menu to learn how to change your cookie preferences. If you reject cookies on our sites, though, you will not be able to access all areas of them or use many of their features. When you accept our cookies, we cannot use them to find out who you really are, unless you tell us.

For more information about cookies, read the unofficial Cookie FAQ from www.allaboutcookies.org/privacy-concerns/.

Will the ChampsDiet.com disclose any of your personal information?

The ChampsDiet.com will not disclose any personally identifiable information about individual users, except as described in this Privacy Statement.

As for individually identifiable information, we may disclose it only under the following circumstances:

We may disclose information to others when we have your consent.

If you buy something from us, we will disclose your personal information to the extent necessary to fulfil your order and charge your credit card (if applicable). We may use a fulfilment company to fill and ship your order (excluding products you download directly from our site) and a credit card processing company to verify your card number and process the transaction. For example, if you order a 1 month diet meal plan with your credit card, we need to give your credit card information to the processing company (to confirm payment).

We may disclose your personal information as required by applicable law, or in response to legal process, to protect the rights or property of the ChampsDiet.com, or to protect the safety of the ChampsDiet.com, our customers, or others.

We may sometimes conduct mailings to other people's lists. To make it easier for us to comply with the Federal CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, we may share our email list of people who have requested not to receive promotional communications from us with the list providers (or contractors) solely so that we can avoid sending emails to people who have asked not to receive them (or, conversely, so that our advertisers can avoid sending emails to people who have requested not to hear from them). We provide these lists only to list providers or contractors that we consider to be reputable.

We may employ contractors or other third parties to help with our operations. We may give them access to databases of user information, so that they can perform their services for us, including performing system maintenance, displaying personalized content, performing list analysis or management, or sending mailings for us. These parties are all subject to confidentiality agreements that restrict their use and disclosure of information they obtain through their relationship with the ChampsDiet.com.

The ChampsDiet.com and its subsidiaries may share information for site administration or order fulfilment, and to notify you of products and services that may interest you.

What kind of security measures do we take to protect your information from accidental loss or disclosure?

The ChampsDiet.com is committed to protecting your personal information. We store information you provide us on our secure servers. Further, the information you provide when making a purchase is encrypted with SSL technology.

Personalized areas of our sites are password-protected. Only you have access to these password-protected areas. Do not share your passwords with anyone. The ChampsDiet.com will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or email. If you are using a computer to which others have access, such as one in a public place, always remember to log out and close your browser window when leaving our site.

Will the ChampsDiet.com use your information for direct mailings ?

If you register with the ChampsDiet.com or sign up for or buy any of our products or services, we will send you information about our various products and services, or other products and services that we believe may interest you.

If you do not want to receive such offers and mailings, you may email us at info@champsdiet.com. We'll remove your name from our lists as soon as we can. Another way is to simply to click the unsubscribe link found in our website or email messages.

Please note: If you purchase products or services from us, or if you register for an account with us, we may contact you to confirm your purchase, or registration, or to provide you with information about its terms or features. You may wish to keep these transactional or relationship emails, to help you use our products and services.

What else should you know about your privacy?

While we do our best to protect your personal information, the ChampsDiet.com cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. What does all of this mean? You must also protect yourself. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any password and/or account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online, especially when using a computer that other people can use also.

How will you know whether the ChampsDiet.com's privacy policy has changed?

We may change this privacy statement at any time, but we will give notice of any material change (or any notices that we are required to give you) on our websites and/or in email messages.
