Privacy Policy

This policy describes how we treat individuals on our websites (“Sites”), mobile or social media applications (“Apps”), and any other service on which we include authorized links or references to this Policy (collectively, “Services”) Information. This Policy does not describe our practices on websites or applications that do not reference this Policy.

What information do we collect?

We may collect information such as your gender and age, family or lifestyle information, and your zip code.

We collect information that you post on public spaces of our website. This includes comments and videos or photos. We also collect any other information that you may provide to us or authorize us to collect. This may include information about your physical activity or nutritional preferences. If you voluntarily choose to have text message notifications sent directly to your mobile phone, we may collect information you provide, including your phone number or when you read the text message.

How do we collect information?

We use tracking tools such as browser cookies and mobile device IDs to collect information when you use the Services. We do this on our website, in emails we send you, and in media advertisements. Over time, we collect information about usage and browser information. You can visit our About Our Cookie Policy here to learn more about the options available to you.

Social media platforms may also provide us with information about you, and we may obtain information about your interaction with our advertisements on third-party websites.
Certain information provided by third parties may be aggregated or otherwise de-identified so that it cannot personally identify you. Aggregated and de-identified data are not subject to this Privacy Policy.

How do we use the information we collect?

One of our goals is to give you a positive experience with our websites, apps and products. Therefore, we may use your information to improve your experience with our websites, applications and products. We may use information you provide or information provided to us by third-party partners to personalize your experience.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
