WHAT INFORMATION ABOUT YOU IS COLLECTED ON OUR WEBSITE OR THROUGH OUR ONLINE PRODUCTS?
We collect two types of information: personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information.
Personally Identifiable Information.
You do not have to provide us with any Personally Identifiable Information to visit our Website. However, if you choose to withhold requested information, you may not be able to visit all sections of our Website or use all of our Online Products, such as subscribing to our online tools or posting content to any Community Area on our Website.

In addition, we may not be able to provide you with some of the other Online Products dependent upon the collection of such information.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
When you become a registered user of our Website, subscribe to one of our current Online Products, or in connection with other Online Products we may make available on our Website from time to time, we also may collect information that by itself cannot be used to identify or contact you, such as demographic information (like age, profession or gender) and health information (like current weight) (“Non-Personally Identifiable Information”).

Non-Personally Identifiable Information is used to help us understand who uses our Site and to improve and market our Site in general and our Online Products in particular.
