1. COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
1.1 Survey Information
Ultimate Vitality Club collects information from individuals by various methods, including, but not limited to, when an individual voluntarily completes a Ultimate Vitality Club survey, order form, or a registration pages either online or offline, or by means of online or offline surveys, order forms, or registration pages operated by third parties (collectively, a “Survey”). (As used herein, “online” means using the Internet, including the Websites, and related technologies, and “offline” means by methods other than online, including in person, in the postal mail, using telephones and cell phones, and other similar means.) In the Surveys, Ultimate Vitality Club or a third party (a “Third Party”) may ask an individual to provide various information to Ultimate Vitality Club, which may include his or her name, email address, street address, zip code, telephone numbers (including cell phone numbers and carriers), birth date, gender, salary range, education and marital status, occupation, social security number, employment information, personal and online interests, and such other information as may be requested from time to time (together, “Survey Information”).

1.2 Other Information
Other occasions when Ultimate Vitality Club obtains information from individuals include (1) when an individual is making a claim for a prize or seeking to redeem an incentive offered by Ultimate Vitality Club or by a third party, (2) when an individual requests assistance through Ultimate Vitality Club’s customer service department, and (3) when an individual voluntarily subscribes to a Ultimate Vitality Club service or newsletter (together, “Other Information”).
1.3 Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Info Collected Using Technology
Ultimate Vitality Club currently uses cookie and web beacon technology to associate certain Internet-related information about an individual with information about the individual in our database. Additionally, Ultimate Vitality Club may use other new and evolving sources of information in the future (together, “Technology Information”).
- Cookies A cookie is a small amount of data stored on the hard drive of the individual’s computer that allows Ultimate Vitality Club to identify the individual with his or her corresponding data that resides in Ultimate Vitality Club’s database. You may read more about cookies at http://cookiecentral.com. Individuals who use the Websites need to accept cookies in order to use all of the features and functionality of the Websites.
- Web Beacons A web beacon is a programming code that can be used to display an image on a web page (by using an programming function – see http://truste.org for more information), but can also be used to transfer an individual’s unique user identification (often in the form of a cookie) to a database and associate the individual with previously acquired information about an individual in a database. This allows Ultimate Vitality Club to track certain web sites an individual visits online. Web beacons are used to determine products or services an individual may be interested in, and to track online behavioral habits for marketing purposes. For example, Ultimate Vitality Club might place, with the consent of a third party website, a web beacon on the third party’s website where fishing products are sold. When Bill, an individual listed in Ultimate Vitality Club’s database, visits the fishing website, Ultimate Vitality Club receives notice by means of the web beacon that Bill visited the fishing site, and Ultimate Vitality Club would then update Bill’s profile with the information that Bill is interested in fishing. Ultimate Vitality Club may thereafter present offers of fishing related products and services to Bill. In addition to using web beacons on web pages, Ultimate Vitality Club also uses web beacons in email messages sent to individuals listed in Ultimate Vitality Club’s database.

Because it does not collect such information, Ultimate Vitality Club has no such information to use or to disclose to third parties. Ultimate Vitality Club has designed this policy in order to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”).
