The Site also includes versions designed for browsing on mobile devices and the use of such devices is governed by this Privacy Policy as well.

Except where otherwise expressly indicated herein or on the Site, this Privacy Policy applies only to information collected on the Site and does not apply to information collected outside of the Site. Before using or submitting information to the Site please review this Privacy Policy carefully.

This Privacy Policy addresses GYMO’s privacy practices relating to general use of the Site, as well as use of the Site by those who sign up to be included in the Get Your Muse On database.

(B) Information GYMO Collects:

GYMO collects the following types of information from users of the Site:

  1. Personally Identifiable Information

GYMO may receive and store any information that you enter on the Site or provide to GYMO in any other way that would allow GYMO to identify you or contact you (collectively “Personally Identifiable Information”). The Personally Identifiable Information that you provide will be used by GYMO only in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Examples of Personally Identifiable Information GYMO may collect from you and use are:

  • your name, address, phone number(s), e-mail address, date of birth, nationality and gender if you are asked to provide such information;
  • the e-mail addresses of those who post comments, stories, photos, videos and other content on the Site;

  • information about your family or friends, including, but not limited to, the name, address, phone number(s), e-mail address, date of birth, nationality and gender of any family member or friend, that you provide in connection with your use of the Site or any feature thereof;

  • information you provide about yourself when you post to the Site.
  • If you choose to interact with the Site using Facebook Connect, we may collect information from your Facebook account through an automated connection to Facebook.

You can choose not to provide GYMO with certain Personally Identifiable Information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many features of the Site, such as posting comments, registering to use certain restricted areas of the Site, entering a sweepstakes or contest on the Site or through Facebook, participating in various promotional opportunities or receiving e-mail alerts or newsletters.

  1. Automatic Information

(a) Collected By GYMO

GYMO may receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with GYMO through the Site. We automatically receive and record your browser information, operating system information, IP address, cookie information and the page you requested. This information will not be stored in a manner that is personally identifiable with you and may include the following:

(1) Aggregate Information

In connection with your visit to the Site, GYMO may automatically collect usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of users and their characteristics and information about similar groups of users, such as parents, certain age groups or users that live in a particular geographical area. This data is only used in the aggregate as a statistical measure and not in a manner that would identify you personally. Aggregate information generally is collected through the use of cookies and Web Beacons as discussed below.

(2) Cookies

GYMO uses “cookies” to help you access and navigate the Site more efficiently and to statistically monitor how many people are using the Site. A “cookie” is a small file or tool stored on your hard drive containing information that allows GYMO to deliver customized information to you. GYMO may use cookies to store your e-mail address, user name, preferences and password so that GYMO can identify you when you return to the Site, track your use of the Site and customize the Site for you. You may set your browser to notify you of or decline the receipt of cookies. Certain features of the Site may not, however, function properly or be available if your browser is configured to disable cookies.

GYMO uses both “session” and “persistent” cookies on the Site. Session cookies are temporary bits of information that are erased once you exit your web browser or turn off your computer. Persistent cookies are more permanent bits of information that are placed on the hard drive of your computer and stay there unless you delete the cookie. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for a number of reasons, such as retrieving certain information you have previously provided (i.e., username and password), helping to determine what areas of the Site you find most valuable and customizing the Site based on your preferences on an ongoing basis.

Many companies offer programs that help you to visit web sites anonymously. While GYMO will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience if GYMO cannot recognize you, GYMO wants you to be aware that these programs are available.

(3) E-mail Communications

When you send an e-mail to GYMO, either through the button on the Site or otherwise, GYMO may retain your e-mail address and the contents of the e-mail that you send. If you want to keep the information in your e-mail(s) or posting(s) private or proprietary, please do not send such information in an e-mail or otherwise post such information to GYMO. To help GYMO make its e-mails more interesting and helpful, GYMO also may receive a confirmation when you open an e-mail from GYMO if your computer supports this type of program.

(b) Information Collected by Third Parties

GYMO may allow third parties to display advertisements on the Site. GYMO and these third parties may use tracking technologies, such as cookies and Web Beacons, to collect information about users who view or interact with these advertisements and connect to the Site.

  1. How GYMO Uses Information

  1. Aggregate Information

This aggregated information is used to, among other things, determine trends and needs and supply market research to potential advertisers and partners to help them understand the Site’s audiences.

  1. With Whom GYMO Shares Information

GYMO reserves the right to use your Personally Identifiable Information to send you periodic e-mailings with information on new products and services, updates to GYMO’s Site or upcoming events.

  1. Important Disclosures, Practices and Contact Information
  2. Third Party Links

The Site contains links to third-party web sites. Please be aware that GYMO cannot control and is not responsible for the information collection practices of such web sites, which may differ from those of GYMO. GYMO encourages you to review and understand the privacy policies of these web sites before providing any information to them.

  1. Interactive Features

The Site may make groups, discussions, chat rooms, forums and message boards available to users (see “Public Areas” described above). While you would be required to register with the Site to post in these areas, you are not required to provide any Personally Identifiable Information when using these areas but you may choose to do so. If you post Personally Identifiable Information online, it will be publicly available and you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties. GYMO cannot ensure the security of any information that you choose to make public in a group, discussion, chat room, forum or message board. Also, GYMO cannot ensure that parties who have access to such Personally Identifiable Information will respect your privacy. Please exercise caution when deciding to disclose Personally Identifiable Information in these areas.

  1. Data Security

GYMO maintains a variety of commercially reasonable physical, electronic and procedural safeguards designed to protect your Personally Identifiable Information from unauthorized access and disclosure. For example, GYMO uses accepted tools and techniques to protect against unauthorized access to GYMO’s systems. You should be aware that GYMO has no control over the security of other sites on the Internet that you might visit or with which you might interact even when a link may appear to another site from one of the Site.

GYMO wants you to feel confident using the Site but no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although GYMO takes steps to secure your information, GYMO does not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information, searches or other communications will always remain secure.

  1. Changes to this Privacy Policy

At any time without prior notice, GYMO may update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in GYMO’s practices. When GYMO posts changes to this Privacy Policy, GYMO will revise the “Last Updated” date at the top of this page. GYMO encourages you to bookmark this Privacy Policy and to periodically review it to inform yourself of changes to it or any of GYMO’s other policies. Any changes to GYMO’s Privacy Policy will become effective upon GYMO’s posting of the updated policy. Use of the Site constitutes your acceptance of the terms of this Privacy Policy then in effect.

  1. California Privacy Rights Under California Civil Code Section 1798.83

If you are a resident of California (“California Users”), in addition to the rights set forth in this Privacy Policy, you generally have the right to request information from GYMO regarding the manner in which GYMO shares certain categories of Personally Identifiable Information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.

Under the law, however, a business is not required to provide this information if it adopts and discloses to the public (in its privacy policy) a policy of not disclosing customer’s personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless the customer first affirmatively agrees to the disclosure, as long as the business maintains and discloses this policy. Rather, the business may comply with the law by notifying California Users of their rights to prevent disclosure of personal information and providing a cost free means to exercise that right.

Please note that whenever you opt in to receive future communications from a third party, your information will be subject to the third party’s privacy policy. If you later decide that you do not want that third party to use your information, you will need to contact the third party directly, as GYMO has no control over how third parties use information. You should always review the privacy policy of any party that collects your information to determine how it will handle your information.

Please note that GYMO is only required to respond to one request per customer each year. GYMO is not required to respond to requests made by means other than through this e-mail address: support@GYMO.com.

  1. Users From Outside the United States
