If you have questions or issue with our Policy or practices, please contact us at [email protected].
1. The information that we collect.
The information we collect from you can be divided into the following general categories:
1.1 User-provided Information. When you use the Service or App, you may provide and we may collect what is generally called “personally identifiable” information, such as your name and email address, mailing address, mobile phone number, photographs, and demographic information such as age, education, gender, interests, and location. For example, you may provide us with personally identifiable information when you register for an account, use the Service or App, post User Content, interact with other users of the Service through communication or messaging features, or send us customer service related requests. Unless you specifically request otherwise prior to submitting your pictures to Katy Hearn, you grant Katy Hearn a lifetime, royaltyfree, worldwide license to use the photographs for marketing pictures you submit to Us.
1.2 Facebook and Facebook Messenger-Provided Information. We collect Facebook and Facebook Messenger account and access information from you for the purposes of connecting to the Facebook API and to authenticate access to information on the Site and App. We may store or log messages or information from your Facebook activity with Katy Hearn and we may access past or archived messages between you and Katy Hearn, including storing nutritional data and other inputs by you. We may use certain personal information from your Facebook account such as your name, age, sex, country, and possibly other personal information that your privacy settings on your Facebook account permit us to access.
1.4 Health Application Aggregation. In order for you to benefit from the full functionality of our Services, our Services request access to your health, diet, nutrition, and exercise information (“Health Information”) contained in related applications, account data, and other stored information. We may use a third party service provider to facilitate the collection of your data from third party websites and mobile applications, including, but not limited to, accessing your account data, activity, and retrieving your Health Information. We do not store your account login information.
1.5 Log files. As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve services we offer you, to improve marketing, analytics, or site functionality.
1.6 Local Storage (HTML5). Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on our site or to display advertising based upon your Web browsing activity use local storage (LS) such as HTML5 to collect and store information. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5 LS.
2. We limit the uses for the information we collect.

Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, we do not allow children under 13 years of age to use the Service or knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information from persons under 13 years of age, and no part of the Service is directed to persons under 13 years of age. If you are under 13 years of age, then please do not use or access Service at any time or in any manner. If we learn that personally identifiable information has been collected on the Service from persons under 13 years of age then we will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.

7. Our Commitment to Data Security.
We use certain physical, managerial, and technical safeguards that are designed to improve the integrity and security of your personally identifiable information. We have a data security policy in place that we regularly test. Our security policy utilizes bank-level encryption and other security measures, such as SSL, to protect sensitive information from hackers and unauthorized parties. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or store on the Service, and you do so at your own risk. WE HEREBY DISCLAIM ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU UTILIZE THE SITE, APP, AND SERVICES AT YOUR OWN RISK AND ON AN “AS IS” BASIS. We also cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.If we learn of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may post a notice through the Service if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.
8. Privacy Settings.
Although we may allow you to adjust your privacy settings to limit access to your information, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share your information. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that information you post on the Service will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.
