WebMD fit is a collaboration between Sanford Health ("Sanford") and WebMD LLC ("WebMD"). WebMD and Sanford (collectively or separately, "We", "Us", or "Our") created this Privacy Policy to provide information about privacy, particularly to address any questions from parents of children that use the Site. This Privacy Policy will tell you what information We collect from users of the Site and how We protect that information. This Privacy Policy pertains to this Site only. Please note that WebMD is the sole operator of the Site and any information We collect from users of the Site may only be used by Us in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

WebMD has been awarded TRUSTe's Children's Privacy Seal signifying that this Privacy Policy and Our privacy practices have been reviewed by TRUSTe for compliance with TRUSTe's program requirements including transparency, accountability and choice regarding the collection and use of your personal information. TRUSTe's certification covers Our privacy practices while on the Site. The TRUSTe program does not cover information that may be collected through downloadable software.

The WebMD fit Site is a website developed for children and teenagers. We comply with U.S. privacy laws, including the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") as We do not collect any "personal information," as that term is defined by COPPA, for children under the age of 13.

By using or accessing the Site, you are agreeing to Our Privacy Policy.

We have organized this Privacy Policy under the following topics:

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

We use cookies for the limited purpose of providing you with access to certain features and functions of the Site and to gather statistical information about usage of the Site (a "cookie" automatically collects information from a visitor to a website and transfers that information to the visitor's hard drive). The cookies do not contain any personal information.

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.

We use a third-party tracking service that uses cookies and Web Beacons to track non-personal information about visitors to Our Site in the aggregate to capture usage and volume statistics to help Us improve Our Site.

Part 2: Protecting Your Children on WebMD fit and Other Safety Concerns

WebMD fit is dedicated to providing visitors with a safe and fun Internet environment to learn in. We have developed a privacy policy that is focused on protecting users of the Site, including a general policy not to disclose a user's identity on the Site, nor to let a user under the age of 13 disclose his or her identity on the Site. Our intention is to adhere to COPPA, the Children's Advertising Review Unit ("CARU") Guidelines for Advertising on the Internet and Online Services, and TRUSTe Children's Privacy Program.

We believe that parents should actively supervise and participate in their children's online activities. We recommend that parents or guardians regularly monitor activity on the Site and implement parental controls accordingly. We have listed links to some helpful Resources.

Part 3: Third Party Sites

We do not endorse, recommend or suggest any website, service or content shared on any third-party website including, but not limited to, any third-party website that is linked from the WebMD fit Site. If you click on a link to another website, it is important for you to know that the website may have different policies regarding the kind of information it may collect about you and how this information may be used.

We are not responsible for the policies or practices of any third-party website. You should review the privacy policies of other websites you visit or link to from Our Site to understand how these other websites collect and use your information. You will need to contact those websites directly if you have any questions about their privacy policies or the information the websites collect and how they use that information.

Part 4: Security

As part of WebMD and Sanford's collaboration, WebMD is responsible for developing and operating the Site. The information visitors provide through the Site is captured and stored securely by WebMD. This information is shared with Sanford subject to this Privacy Policy. WebMD follows generally accepted industry standards and its own best practices to protect the information submitted to WebMD from visitors, both during transmission and once WebMD receives it.

Part 5: Changes to this Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change or modify this Privacy Policy at any time and any changes will be effective upon being posted unless We advise otherwise. If We make any material changes to this Privacy Policy, We will notify you by posting a notice on the Site prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy frequently for any changes. Unless stated otherwise, Our current Privacy Policy applies to all information that We have about Our users and their accounts. If you do not accept the terms of this Privacy Policy, We ask that you do not use the Site. Please exit the Site immediately if you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy.
