HOIST Fitness respects your privacy and is committed to protect the personal information that you share with us. Generally, we have designed our website so that you can find information about our products and services without giving us any information about yourself. When we do need your personal information to provide services that you request or when you choose to provide us with your personal information, this policy describes how we collect and use your personal information.
Personal information relates to any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, a home, physical address, date of birth, gender, occupation, industry, personal interests, and other information when needed to provide a service you requested.
Access to certain Site pages requires a login and a password. The use of those web pages, and the information or programs downloadable from those pages, may be governed by a written agreement between your employer and HOIST Fitness. Unless you request deletion of your personal information as specified below, your personal information may be retained by HOIST Fitness to verify compliance with the agreement, log software licenses granted, to track software downloaded from those pages, or track usage of other applications available on those pages.
We offer secure web pages to collect certain kinds of user information and we store certain kinds of data in encrypted form. We follow reasonable technical and management practices to help protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of data stored on our system. While no computer system is completely secure, we believe the measures implemented by our web site reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved. Our servers use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), an encryption technology that works with Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and AOL's browser, so that only HOIST Fitness and its designated service provider's can read a customer's personal information. HOIST Fitness places the utmost importance on protecting information transmitted via the site and will take security precautions to protect all such information; however, HOIST Fitness cannot guarantee that any electronic commerce is totally secure. HOIST Fitness will take measures to secure and protect all customer-specific information from loss, misuse, and alteration.
We will always give you the opportunity to "opt out" of receiving direct marketing or market research information. This means we assume you have given us your consent to collect and use your information in accordance with this Policy unless you take affirmative action to indicate that you do not consent, for instance by clicking or checking the appropriate option or box at the point of collection. In some cases, when applicable, we will provide you with the opportunity to "opt in." This means we will require your affirmative action to indicate your consent before we use your information for purposes other than the purpose for which it was submitted.
