Privacy Policy

Welcome to WorldGymChallenge.com which is owned and managed by WorldGymChallenge.com Limited.  Your privacy is important to us and we have registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (number Z9598890). All our use of personal data is governed by the Data Protection Act 1998.
WorldGymChallenge is committed to safeguarding the privacy of your data whilst providing you with a personalised, fun, and valuable service. This privacy policy explains when and how personal information is collected, used, disclosed and protected with respect to WorldGymChallenge. By using WorldGymChallenge, you consent to the privacy practices described in this policy, as modified from time to time by us. Please carefully revise this policy periodically to review any changes made to it.

What is Personal Information?
Personal information is defined as information that specifically identifies an individual such as a username, name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, or other account number, and information about that individual's activities when directly linked to that person such as information about his or her use of WorldGymChallenge. Personal information also includes demographic information such as date of birth, gender, geographic area and preferences when such information is linked to other personal information that identifies you.
Personal information does not include "aggregate" information. Aggregate information is data we collect about a group or category of places, products, services or customers, from which individual customer identities have been removed. In other words, information about how you use a service may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same service. Aggregate data helps us understand trends and our users' needs so that we can better consider new features or otherwise tailor WorldGymChallenge.

Cookies

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer's hard drive by your web browser and identify you as a unique user. We use cookies to allow registered users to enter our site without explicitly typing in their username/email address and password every time – however, this will only happen if you choose “remember me” when typing in the username and password.  However, we only advise you to do that on computers where the information is not sensitive or accessible to others. If you’d prefer, you can set your browser to refuse cookies (details can be found at www.aboutcookies.org). You should be aware that if you choose not to receive our cookies, we cannot guarantee that our website will be as functional as if you do receive cookies.

Personal Information We Collect
We collect personal information in a number of ways when you visit our web site. For example, we collect personal information when you:

  • register and set up an account;
  • sign up to any of our e-mail newsletters;
  • discussion topics you create in any “discussion forum”;
  • post a review or;
  • contact us by e-mail for any reason.

When you visit our web site, some information is also automatically collected, such as your computer's Internet Protocol (IP) address, your computer's operating system, the browser type, the address of a referring web site, and timestamp. We treat this information as personal information if we combine it with or link it to any of the identifying information mentioned above. Otherwise, it is used in the aggregate only.

How We Use Personal Information?
In general, we use personal information to process your requests and provide you with service or to inform you about other products or services we think will be of interest. When we use personal information in our marketing efforts, we provide you with options (See Controlling Your Personal Information below) and do not disclose the information to third parties except as described in this policy. Personal information provided online may be linked together or merged with other personal information so that we may better understand your needs and inform you about our products or services and those of our partners. In addition, if we receive information from third parties with whom we have business relationships, we may combine this information with the other personal information we maintain about you. In either case, this policy governs this information.
Browser-type related information, IP address, requested URL, referring URL, and timestamp data help us diagnose problems with our server, administer WorldGymChallenge, and otherwise provide the highest possible level of service to you. In addition, we use this information to perform statistical analyses of user behaviour and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site and to inform advertisers of such information as well as the number of users that have been exposed to, or clicked on, their advertising banners.
Additionally, WorldGymChallenge uses the information obtained from cookies (see Cookies above) for several purposes. The cookies enable us to understand your own personal preferences and tailor your experience on WorldGymChallenge by using those preferences. WorldGymChallenge also uses cookies to track user trends and patterns. The information which WorldGymChallenge receives from cookies enables us to modify and improve WorldGymChallenge to meet the needs of our users, including you.
When users provide WorldGymChallenge with registration information such as name, email address and postal address, this data can be matched with cookie data, if cookies have been set to be received. This means WorldGymChallenge is able to match an identifiable user with specific usage of WorldGymChallenge. This information would be used by WorldGymChallenge only.

We use your performance results to identify/feature outstanding members.

Controlling your Personal Information
You should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (e.g., username, e-mail address) via messages, discussion forums, postings, or in other areas of the WorldGymChallenge, that information, along with any substantive information disclosed in your communication, can be collected and correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of WorldGymChallenge. Please do not post any personal information on WorldGymChallenge or in other areas that you expect to keep private.
As a registered WorldGymChallenge member, you can modify your personal information at any time by accessing the "Edit Profile" section of the site. If you do not want to receive e-mail from us you can change your notification settings within the “My Profile” section of the site.

Registered users who wish to close their account should contact admin@worldgymchallenge.com.

Sharing of Personal Information
We do not sell, rent or share personal information with third parties without your prior consent except in the limited circumstances described in this policy. We may share personal information with third-party vendors who assist us in performing functions necessary to operate our business. These functions may include, without limitation, website hosting and data entry but they will be using your data on our behalf and we are responsible for it and they will not use it except to fulfil our needs in accordance with this policy.  However, with credit card transaction processing, the terms of the service provider’s privacy policy will apply as do their terms of business and we are not responsible for their use of the data so please make sure you read their policy and terms carefully before proceeding.
In addition, we may disclose personal information in the good faith belief that we are lawfully authorised to do so, or that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process or authorities, respond to any claims, or to protect the rights, property or personal safety of WorldGymChallenge, our users, our employees or the public. Information about our users, including personal information, may be disclosed or transferred as part of, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets or acquisition but they will be legally bound to keep the information secure and only to use it consistent with this policy in the event of the deal proceeding. Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personal information when posting reviews or other content onto WorldGymChallenge, this information may be collected and used by others.  You agree that we bear no responsibility for any such disclosures.  We recommend you be cautious in giving out personal information to others in our discussion forums.

Security
WorldGymChallenge is concerned for the security of data. Your WorldGymChallenge account is password-protected. To protect the confidentiality of personal information, you must keep your password confidential.
WorldGymChallenge tries very hard to protect our users’ information. We use industry standard measures to protect your information that is stored within our database. We limit the access to your information to those employees who need access to perform their job function such as our customer service personnel. Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorised disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this privacy policy. WorldGymChallenge is constantly reviewing the security measures required to prevent third parties or any unauthorised entity from accessing any data that it holds.
