When you place an order on our Site, we collect your name, email address, mailing address and credit card number. The personally identifiable information we collect when you place an order or register for membership on our Site may be used for any of the following purposes: (1) to fulfill your requests for products and services; (2) to notify you of order, delivery, and shipment statuses; (3) to provide you with offers from My Healthy Penguin; (4) to contact you when necessary; (5) to review Site usage and operations; (6) to address problems with the Site, our business or our products and services; and (7) to protect security or integrity of the Site and our business.
Your personal information may be shared with reputable third-party associates of My Healthy Penguin that work with us to provide products and services to our customers. This helps us with marketing campaigns in order to market products and services to you directly, unless you have asked us not to. We may also disclose your information to third parties if the law requires it or to protect the rights or property of My Healthy Penguin.
If you do not want us to share your contact information with other companies or organizations, or do not want to receive additional promotions from us, please let us know by emailing us at email@example.com.
If you opt-out of promotional or newsletter emails from My Healthy Penguin, we may continue to send you certain transactional communications, such as service announcements and administrative messages relating to My Healthy Penguin that are necessary for our relationship with you.
When you register for membership on our Site, we also collect your basic health profile information when you actively give us such information. The health and age information we collect allows My Healthy Penguin to evaluate your self-reported health status to determine basic program eligibility. You will be notified at registration if your profile excludes you from participation in the plan. My Healthy Penguin will not disclose your health and age information (including self-reported height and weight) to third parties.
My Healthy Penguin does not share payment information with third parties.
My Healthy Penguin periodically asks members to participate in online surveys to fill out online questionnaires concerning topics such as the effectiveness of the weight loss program, advertising effectiveness and customer satisfaction. All surveys and questionnaires are optional and the information collected will not be associated with any user’s personal information. Information gathered may be shared with third parties in order to improve customer satisfaction and program effectiveness. No personal information of any user will be connected to survey or questionnaire results.
From time to time, My Healthy Penguin collects third-party email addresses or other contact information from our users and customers so that My Healthy Penguin may send information to their friends and family on an as-requested basis. For example, My Healthy Penguin collects email addresses when a customer provides us with that information so that we may send out Referral Coupons. We also require the same information when customers utilize certain functions such as “email this to a friend” features.
