We also collect other profile data including but not limited to: personal interests and fitness goals, metric preferences, other personal fitness details and geographical location.
We store the data you enter about meals, workouts, progress measurements photos, videos and anything you choose to track.
We receive and store data about you whenever you interact with Twinbody, such as when you view another person’s profile, comment on someone’s update, click Like on a post/photo/video, search for another Twinbody user, gym, meal, workout or group or click on an ad.
When you post other things, like photos or videos of your meals, workouts or progress, we may obtain related data such as the time and date stamps and whereabouts you took the media information.

We receive data from the computer, mobile phone, iPad or any other device you use to access Twinbody. This may include your IP address, location, the type of browser you use, or the pages you go to. Twinbody logs non-personally-identifiable information including IP address, profile information, aggregate user data, and browser type, from users and visitors to the site. This data is used to manage the website, track usage and improve the website services and features. This non-personally-identifiable information may be shared with third-parties to provide more relevant services and advertisements to members to enhance your experience on Twinbody. User IP addresses are recorded for security and monitoring purposes.
We use your information for customer support and may contact you via email with service-related announcements that may include content you see on Twinbody.

Twinbody may share your non-private, aggregated or otherwise non-personal information, such as your meal, workout, or progress posts and updates or the number of users who clicked on a particular update with other users on Twinbody or to promote Twinbody publically to non Twinbody users.

Twinbody allows advertisers to choose the characteristics of users who will see their advertisements and Twinbody may use any of the non-personally identifiable attributes collected (including information such as your birth year or other sensitive personal information or preferences) to select the appropriate audience for those advertisements. For example, Twinbody may use your interest in Running to show you ads for Running shoes, but

Twinbody does not tell the running company who you are. In order to enhance your experience on Twinbody, we may get data from these advertising partners and other 3rd parties that help us or them deliver ads and comprehend your online activity. For instance, we would get information from the advertiser letting us know what you did when you clicked on an ad or what sites you then visited to gauge the usefulness and quality of that ad.

Even though Twinbody does not share your personal information with advertisers without your consent, when you click on or otherwise interact with an advertisement there is a possibility that the advertiser may place a cookie in your browser and note that it meets the criteria they selected. Some of those advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send those advertisers information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. You agree that such third parties may collect, use and commercially exploit any information provided by you in any lawful way that they wish including, but not limited to, directing e-mail, text, SMS or other communications to you about products or services which may be of interest to you.

Twinbody may also use your information, including the addresses you import through our contact importers, to make suggestions to you and other users on Twinbody. Similarly, Twinbody allows other users to use contact information they have about you, such as your email address, to find you, including through contact importers and search.

Public search engines

Your profile is public to search engines such as Google, Yahoo etc. Meaning, if someone searches your name on Google, your Twinbody profile will show up as a search result. You can elect to make your profile private by adjusting your public setting to private under “Account Settings”. This setting does not apply to the internal Twinbody search engine as that is kept public to Twinbody users for maximum user experience. If you turn your public search setting to Private and then search for yourself on a public search engine like Google, you may still see a preview of your Twinbody profile. This happens because some public search engines cache information for a period of time.

Twinbody uses cookie and web beacon technology to collect information about how you use our service. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand what features appeal to you most and to assist us in customizing our content to you. Cookies are small pieces of data that we store on your computer’s hard disk, mobile phone or other device. We use cookies to store visitors’ preferences and to record session information, for purposes including ensuring that visitors are not repeatedly offered the same advertisements and to customize newsletter, advertising, and Web page content based on browser type and user profile information. You may be able to configure your browser to accept or reject all or some cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set — each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences — however, you must enable cookies from Twinbody in order to use most functions on the site.

A Web beacon, also called web bugs and clear GIFs, is a programming code that can be used to display an image on a web page. A web beacon is so small that you usually can’t see it. Web beacons may be used to track online user behavior. It could also be used to move your unique identification information to a database and connect you with existing information we have from another person in our database. Web beacons may also be used in email messages.

Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of member information at any time.
