Your Privacy Is Important to Us!
Level1Diet.com does not redistribute email addresses provided to us by our members without their permission.
DISCUSSIONS AND FORUMS
We respect our members' and users' privacy completely, and try our utmost to maintain strict controls about their private information. Some members want their email address to be published with their comments, reviews, articles and reports, etc. Others do not.
Our software is designed to protect them from any undesired release of their email address or other information. However, in case any user finds that their information has somehow been exposed to public view without their permisssion, or if they change their mind and would like such information removed from our site, we will remove it for them promptly after they have requested such removal.
COOKIES AND WEB BEACONS
Temporary files called 'magic cookies' are used by our server software to track users' participation in our system and to enable certain required software. Cookie files enable us to be sure that each successive page request and other communication is actually coming from the same user. No personal or private information is tracked or logged from such cookies, other than their geographic location, their IP address, and their type of hardware and software used to browse our pages. Using this tracking information, we can assure that other users are not able to pretend to be someone they are not. Cookies are an additional level of privacy protection for you, and a safety feature for our server that reduces possible malicious hacking, identity theft, and other undesired user activities.
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.
We also use third party advertisements on Level1diet.com to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
We do not track or obtain email addresses, credit card numbers, phone numbers, street addresses, or other personal or private information pertaining to a user's or member's identity, unless the user or member has explicitly joined our forum and entered the information directly into a form on our site.
Once a user has entered his/her email address or other private and personal information, we never release or redistribute, sell or rent or trade that information to other companies outside the Level1Diet.com web-site family of web companies. (Level1Diet.com operates other web-sites, such as Level1Plan.com, Level1Health.com and Level1Program.com. Each of these web-sites has similar privacy protection to that described here.)
We do not spam. Here is how your information is protected:
1. EMAIL COLLECTION
Visitor may add their names and email addresses to many of our online forms, newsletters, or product offers. We maintain newsletter subscriber lists, discussion forums, and display visitor comments to some of our reports. We also offer certain products such as eBooks, audio CDs and Level1Diet.com Reports for sale to our visitors. Your email may be required to receive those products from us. We do not add your email address ourselves unless requested by the you. We never send you emails unless you have yourself added the email to one of our mailing lists or performed an online action in one of our pages for which an email confirmation was required. We never buy email lists from other individuals or companies. We do not collect email addresses by any means other than direct visitor form inputs into our system.
2. DOUBLE-OPT-IN PROTECTION
Additions to our formal email lists are confirmed by an industry standard double-opt-in system, where each subscriber to a list receives a confirmation request after requesting his/her address be added to the list. If they do not respond to the confirmation email, they are not actually added to the active list.
3. AUTOMATIC EMAIL REMOVAL BY YOU
Registered members or subscribers can automatically remove themself from our email lists by clicking links at the bottom of all emails we send. When you click that web-link to unsubscribe, your name and email address is automatically and immediately removed from our system. This action takes place without any further action from you. Upon successful removal, the system may send you one last email that only confirms that the removal did occur. After that, you will receive no further emails from that list. If you have subscribed to more than one of our lists, you may have to remove yourself from each list using this system.
4. MANUAL REMOVAL BY OUR STAFF
If automatic email removal fails or the user wishes us to remove their name and address manually, we will do so. If for any reason, or if at any time, you as a registered member or user wish to have your email address or other information removed from our system or changed, we will remove the information or email address promptly after receiving a request from you to do so. This action will usually take place within a few hours, but may sometimes take up to three days during busy periods or around holidays. Please notify us that you want your address or other information removed, using our Contact Us page. We will act as soon as possible to follow your request. Be sure that you provide the exact information you want removed, so that we can find it in our system and remove it properly. Also be sure to mention the exact email lists you want to be removed from, so we can be sure to remove your email from the correct list.
