Your privacy is important to us. We value the trust you have placed in us, and are committed to protecting and safeguarding any personal information you give us. This document, which we update from time to time, describes how we use and process your personal information. It also tells you how you can contact us if you have questions about your personal information.
Fitnessgenes offers DNA Analysis and Genetic Training plans through its own websites and mobile apps and through other online platforms such as partners' websites. The information that follows applies to all of these platforms.
What kind of personal information does Fitnessgenes use?
- When you order our DNA test and training plans, you will be asked for relevant pieces of information required to analyse your genetic profile and environmental situation. This information is used by Fitnessgenes to prepare the best possible advice for you with regards to training and nutrition.
During the order, registration and payment process we will also collect delivery and payment information. We will automatically create a member’s account for you that you can use to access your results and personal information.
- When you visit our website, even if you do not order any product, we may collect certain information, such as your IP address, which browser you're using, and information about your computer's operating system, application version, language settings and pages that have been shown to you. If you are using a mobile device, we might also collect data that identifies your mobile device, device-specific settings and characteristics and latitude/longitude details. We might also calculate and process data related to the type of apps installed on a mobile device, such as the name of the app, an app description and the category it belongs to. None of this information by itself will be able to tell us who you are, but it can still considered to be 'personal' information.
- We may also receive information about you when you use certain social media services.
