  It is important that you take the time to read  

and understand this Privacy Policy so that you can appreciate how we use your personal information. 

 

 

Please also refer to our terms www.integrativenutrition.com/lp/privacypolicy (“Terms of Service”), which are incorporated as if fully recited herein. Defined terms not defined herein shall have the same definition as in the Terms of Service. 

  

This Privacy Policy is subject to the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”), and the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (Cal. Civil Code 1798.100 et seq) as amended (“CCPA”).  IIN agrees that under the GDPR, it is a data “Controller” and you, if you are an individual and reside in the United Kingdom, Northern Ireland, the European Union and Switzerland, are a “Data Subject” with certain protected privacy rights concerning your “Personal Data.” Similarly, under the CCPA, we are a “Business”, and you, if you are an individual residing in California, are a “Consumer” with certain protected privacy rights concerning your “Personal Information”. We will take commercially reasonable steps to maintain compliance with GDPR and CCPA requirements. Your Personal Data and Personal Information may identify you as a person, and thus may be referred to as Personally Identifiable Information ("PII"). 

 

·    What personally identifiable information is collected by Institute for Integrative Nutrition or by any third party through our website; 

·    How Institute for Integrative Nutrition uses this information; 

·    With whom Institute for Integrative Nutrition may share this information; 

·    What choices are available to you as a user of our website with respect to collection, use and distribution of the information; and 

·    What types of security procedures are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control. 

  

This Privacy Policy applies only to our website and information collected for us or by us through our website and through various features and online offerings on our website. It does not apply to any third party site or service linked to our website or recommended or referred by our website or by our staff. Further, it does not apply to any other type of online site or online service operated by Institute for Integrative Nutrition or to any of our offline activities. 

  

1. Information Collection and Use 

IIN collects two different types of information through our website: anonymous information and personally identifiable information.  IIN collects information that you provide to us under various circumstances, including when you complete a form, enroll in a course, join a Facebook group, enter a promotion, enroll in the Ambassador Network, or otherwise communicate with IIN. 

  

Anonymous Information. We may collect and store anonymous, aggregate information (such as internet protocol (IP) addresses and the general physical location derived from it, browser types, search engines, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform/browser type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks) from all visitors to our website. You may search our website for general information provided through our website without ever submitting your name, email address or any other personally identifiable information. The anonymous information that we do collect from your visit is never linked to any of your personally identifiable information until you voluntarily submit that personal information, in which case some otherwise anonymous information may be connected to your website activity and personal account.  Otherwise, the anonymous information is only used in the aggregate to analyze trends, administer the website, diagnose any problems, track a visitor’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We may provide this anonymous information in aggregate form to other parties or use it for our own insight or marketing purposes. Our ability to use this information is not restricted in any way.   

  

We also use “cookies” and “image tags” to collect certain usage information from all visitors to our website.  A “cookie” is a small text file that a website can place on your computer’s hard drive or on your mobile device’s memory in order to collect information about your activities on our website.  Our Sites use first and third party cookies.  An “image tag,” also known as a clear GIF or web beacon, works together with cookies and is a small image file that may be located in various areas of our website. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you have the option to change your browser setting to decline them. 

  

Accepting cookies in no way gives us access to your computer or any personal information about you, since cookies are not used to identify anonymous website visitors. Our cookies enable you to proceed smoothly through our website, offer you a more personalized experience, and know whether you’ve used it before, so as to eliminate some steps that apply to new visitors. Cookies also give us usage and analytics data like how often you visit, where you go on our website, and what you do while here.   

 

Our Service uses Google Analytics, provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 (“Google”).  Google Analytics uses cookies and similar technologies to collect and analyze information about use of the Services and report on activities and trends.  This service may collect information regarding the use of other websites, apps and online resources.  For more information on how Google uses data when you use our Site or Service, please follow this link: https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites.  You may be able to opt-out of some or all of Google Analytics features by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, available at, https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.  For more information about interest-based ads, or to opt out of having your web browsing information used for behavioral advertising purposes, please visit http://optout.aboutads.info

  

With respect to unrelated, third party websites that we may happen to link to, or websites that link to our website, those third parties may collect personal information directly from you. The information policies and practices of these unrelated parties are not covered by this privacy policy. We do not control the privacy policies of third parties even if we may provide hyperlinks or other access to their web sites. We are not responsible or liable for their independent policies and practices. Please review their privacy policies and practices. It is your responsibility to review them and decide if you are satisfied with their protections. 

  

Some browsers have a “do not track” feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. These features are not yet uniform, so we are not currently set up to respond to those signals. 

  

Personally Identifiable Information. We require the submission of certain personally identifiable information when you use some services available on our website. Our website uses a variety of contact forms for visitors to request information, view content and apply for employment. From you we may collect your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, gender, age, payment information, and any other information you provide or display in that circumstance.  We use PII to respond to requests from visitors, to process your requests to be added to mailing lists or for requests to access, and to make payments. We may give information about you (on the understanding that such information will be kept confidential) to partners, service providers, employees, and agents of IIN to administer and provide the Services provided to you that we agree to undertake. Note that once you have voluntarily provided personally identifiable information to us, we may use cookies to help identify you. We may also collect your geo-location data automatically through your use of our Services.  Personally identifiable information received from you (such as IP address, phone number, email address, zip code, etc.) may be contained in or linked to a cookie. You acknowledge and warrant, however, that you will not submit any of the following information: social security numbers, national insurance numbers, passwords, security credentials, or sensitive personal or health information of any kind. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you are a covered entity under HIPAA, you agree to contact us at intellectualproperty@integrativenutrition.com in order to request a business associate agreement pursuant to our Terms of Use. 

  

We may use cookies with personally identifiable information so that our website can remember you, enhance your online visit with us, and provide you with the information you’re most likely to need. For instance, cookies allow our website to remind you of your past website activity.  You may opt out of the use of cookies through your web browser settings.  Disabling cookies may cause some aspects of the Services to not function properly, or in some other way diminish your experience. 

  

2. Our Use Restrictions on Your Personally Identifiable Information 

IIN does not sell, rent, or share personally identifiable information to or with any third party not affiliated with or owned by Institute for Integrative Nutrition, except service providers who may assist us in such areas as our promotions and data storage (See “Agents and Vendors,” below). Institute for Integrative Nutrition will never give or sell your personally identifiable information to unaffiliated third parties to be used for the purposes of sending you unsolicited commercial offers, such as spam. We may, however, use your personal information to send you information in e-mails from Institute for Integrative Nutrition. 

  

We may also need to contact you for purposes other than marketing, for example to provide notice about the status of our website or the specific services you have requested. We also use this information to the extent necessary to enforce our Terms of Service. You may not opt-out of these kinds of communications. Consistent with our change policy (See “Your Consent and Notification of Changes,” below), we will post any updates or notices about material changes in our policies on collection and use of your personally identifiable information to this Privacy Policy page. 

  

3. Third Party Information about You 

Our website may supplement the information that you provide with information that we obtain about you from third parties. To the best of our knowledge, we only deal with reputable providers who gather and maintain information in accordance with all applicable state and federal laws. Any such information will be maintained by us in accordance with the standards set forth in this Privacy Policy along with other personal information you’ve provided. 

  

4. Our Agents and Vendors 

IIN may use other companies and/or individuals to perform any functions described in this Privacy Policy, on our behalf.  Such parties only have access to the personal information needed to perform these functions and may not use or store the information for any other purpose. We obtain commitments from these agents and vendors working on our behalf to refrain from using any information provided by Institute for Integrative Nutrition to send you unsolicited e-mail messages from third parties or similar communications and from sharing your information with unrelated parties. 

  

5. Disclosure of Personal Information as Required By Law or Otherwise 

We will disclose personal information when required by law, or if we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on us or to comply with the request of a law enforcement agency, (b) protect and defend our rights, (c) protect the rights, property, and other interests of our users or others, or (d) operate our systems properly. 

  

6. Links 

Our website contains links to other sites. Institute for Integrative Nutrition is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our website and to read the privacy statements of each and every site that collects personally identifiable information from you. Our Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by our website. 

  

7. Security 

IIN takes commercially reasonable precautions to protect your personally identifiable information. However, given the nature of the Internet and the fact that network security measures are not perfect, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your information. If we are required to provide notice to you of a data security breach, the notice will be provided in electronic form. 

  

8. Your Consent and Notification of Changes 

By using any of our Services or submitting information to us online, you agree that we may collect and use this information as stated in this Privacy Policy at the time we collect the information. If we decide to change our Privacy Policy in any material way, for a reasonable time we will post a concurrent notice to this Privacy Policy page on our Sites to alert you about the change in our privacy and information collection practices. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that affect your personally identifiable information already stored in our database, we apply those changes to the personally identifiable information in our possession only as permitted by applicable law.  Your continued use of our Services following our notice of changes to this Privacy Policy, or any other legal method of acceptance, means you accept such changes. Please refer to the “Effective Date” above to see when this Policy was last updated. 

  

9.   California Privacy Rights 

 

A.  Description of a California Consumer’s Rights under the CCPA 

 

The CCPA applies to our practices with respect to PII of California residents.  Under the CCPA, Consumers have certain rights regarding their Personal Information. 

 

 

 

 

 

California consumers have the right to request that we disclose Personal Information we have collected about them in the previous 12 months including, but not limited to, the categories of information collected by us, the source(s) of such information by category, and the purpose for collecting such information.  This right may not be exercised more than twice in a 12 month period.  In the previous 12 months, we have collected the following categories of Personal Information about consumers: 

  

Identifiers.  Identifiers can be your name, mailing address, social security number, unique personal identifiers (device identifier, IP Address, cookies, beacons, pixel tags, mobile ad identifiers), account names, and similar information;  We collect the identifiers from the consumers themselves, third parties, and automatic means; 

 

Personal Information Under the California Customer Records Law (Cal. Civ. Code §1798.80) (“CCRLPI”); 

 

Characteristics of Protected Classes.  These characteristics can be your race, age, religion, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, gender, physical/mental disability, and similar information; 

 

Commercial Information.  Commercial information includes records of personal property, products or services purchased, obtained or considered, or other purchased or consuming histories or tendencies; 

 

Internet/Network Activity.  Internet Activity Information includes browsing history, cookies, search history and a consumer’s interaction with a website; 

 

Geolocation Data. Geolocation Data includes GPS data; and 

 

Inferences drawn from any other category of personal information. 

 

We collect Personal Information in the above categories from the consumers themselves and by automatic means for the purposes described above, and as required to comply with applicable law. 

 

As a California consumer, you also have the right to request that we tell you which of your Personal Information we have disclosed for a business purpose, or sold, in the previous 12 months.  With respect to Personal Information being disclosed for a business purpose, the consumer shall receive the categories of information disclosed and the types of entities they have been disclosed to.  This right may not be exercised more than twice in a 12 month period.  For Personal Information being sold, this includes the categories of information being sold and the categories of third parties to whom it is being sold.   

 

In the past 12 months, we have disclosed personal information falling under the following categories of Personal Information: Identifiers; CCRLPI; Characteristics of Protected Classes; Commercial Information; Geolocation Data; and Internet/Network Activity. 

 

We disclose Personal Information in the preceding categories to the consumers themselves, to third parties as the consumer may direct, our service providers, and government/law enforcement agencies for the purpose it was provided/provision of Services, to comply with applicable law, and as otherwise described above. 

 

IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS WE HAVE NOT SOLD, AND DURING THE PERIOD OF TIME WHICH THIS PRIVACY POLICY IS POSTED WE SHALL NOT SELL, THE PERSONAL INFORMATION OF ANY CONSUMER, INCLUDING MINORS UNDER THE AGE OF 16. 

 

If we were selling any of your Personal Information, you would have the right to opt out of the sale of your Personal Information. 

 

You also have the right to request the deletion of the Personal Information that we have collected from you at any time.  However, we may not be required to comply with such request under several circumstances including, but not limited to, when the data is necessary for the underlying transaction, to comply with applicable law, to detect security incidents, to debug glitches, and for our internal purposes. 

 

In the event that you exercise one of your rights under the CCPA, you will not be discriminated by us in any way, including by the denial of goods or services, providing you a different level of goods or services, or charging you different prices or rates for the goods or services, unless the change in price is reasonably related to the value you receive from your personal information. 

 

B.  How do you exercise your rights under the CCPA? 

 

            Because we offer the Services exclusively online, you may submit your requests to exercise your rights under the CCPA by emailing us at intellectualproperty@integrativenutrition.com, please include “Request for Privacy Information” in the subject line. 

 

            We will do our very best to respond within 45 calendar days of receipt of your request, and in no event will our response come more than 90 days after receiving your request.  If we are unable to provide our response within the first 45 day window, we shall notify you as soon as we become aware of the possible delay and provide an explanation of why additional time is needed to respond. 

 

            Before we respond to any CCPA based requests relating to your personal information, we will take steps to reasonably verify the identity of the person making the request (“Requestor”) to make sure it’s you, or your authorized agent.  We do this to this avoid disclosing your information to third parties and bad actors, not to inconvenience you in any way.  To do this, we will ask the Requestor to confirm at least two pieces of information that we have in our files.  As the sensitivity of the information being requested goes up, we will ask the Requestor to confirm more pieces of information. If an agent is acting on behalf of the consumer, we will need to also verify the agent’s identity and their authority to act on the consumer’s behalf.  For requests to delete information, after verification, we will confirm the consumer’s desire to delete one final time before actually deleting the information.  If the identity of the Requestor cannot be reasonably verified, either as the consumer or their agent, then in order to protect that consumer, we shall not disclose the personal information requested.
