How do we collect personal information online?
Find Your Body Type collects personal information online through Web sites and other online resources.

How do you protect the privacy of children?
In general, Find Your Body Type Web sites are not directed at children and most of the online services that we offer are designed for individuals who are 18 years of age or older.
For Kids Only
Find Your Body Type Web sites are generally not intended for children under the age of 13. Generally these sites do not collect personal information. Where these sites do collect personal information about children, we require parental consent for children to participate with these sites in any way. Requests for parental consent explain how we collect, use and disclose personal information about children, and include an opportunity for parents to prevent collection, use and disclosure of information about their children.
Find Your Body Type collects only necessary personal information from children, and uses personal information about children only to provide requested services. Unless we have prior parental permission, we do not use or disclose personal information about any child to third parties that are not working on Find Your Body Type's behalf. If, at any time, a parent withdraws his or her consent to our use or disclosure of personal information collected from his or her child, we will use reasonable efforts to promptly remove such information from our database.
We do not request that children under the age of 13 disclose more personal information than is necessary in order to participate in any online service. Should a child whom we know to be under 13 send personal information to us, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child to inform him or her that we must have parental consent before receiving information about him or her.
How will I know if this policy is updated?
Find Your Body Type may update this policy periodically. Find Your Body Type reserves the right to modify, add or remove portions of this privacy statement at its discretion. If we decide to change this policy, we will post those changes at this site so you always will know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose it to anyone. This policy was last updated on November 12, 2008.
