Part 1: What Kinds of Information Do We Collect on the WebMD fit Site?
We do not require visitors to provide any personal information to use or enjoy the Site.
We passively collect certain non-personal information through the standard operation of WebMD fit's Internet servers. This information allows Us to keep the Site running efficiently and to gather statistical information about usage of the Site. The information We collect includes the browser that you use and the operating system you are using. We may also collect other kinds of non-personal information such as your computer's Internet Protocol (IP) address, the number of visits to different pages on the Site and how often a game is played.
A. Contests or Sweepstakes
From time to time, We may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or sweepstakes on the Site if you are 13 years of age or older. If you participate in a contest or sweepstakes, We will request certain personal information from you. Participation in these contests or sweepstakes is completely voluntary and you have a choice whether or not to disclose this personal information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and address,) and demographic information (such as zip code.) We use this requested information for administrative reasons such as to notify winners and award prizes in connection with the contest or sweepstakes. If the information We collect is used for any other purpose, We will tell you at the time you sign up for the contest or sweepstakes. We will retain the information We collect as long as needed to conduct the contest or sweepstakes. We will also retain the information We collect as necessary to comply with legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce Our agreements.
We may use a third party service provider to conduct these contests or sweepstakes. The third party service provider will be prohibited from using Our users' personal information for any purpose other than to conduct the contests or sweepstakes. Except for these third party service providers, We will not share the personal information you provide through a contest or sweepstakes with other third parties unless We give you prior notice and the opportunity to "opt-out" of having that information shared with such other third parties.
B. Cookies and Web Beacons
If you reject cookies, you may still use Our site, but your ability to use some areas of Our Site may be limited.
We also use Web Beacons (also called clear gifs) that help Us manage content on the Site by informing Us what content is effective. "Web Beacons" are tiny graphics or code that use a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, Web Beacons are embedded on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by Web Beacons to any personal information provided by users.
