Information we receive and how it is used
Information we receive about you
We receive a number of different types of information about you, including:
Your information is the information that's required when you sign up for the site, as well as the information you choose to share.
1. Registration information: When you sign up for LifeTyme, you are required to provide your name and email address.
2. Information you choose to share: Your information also includes the information you choose to share on Facebook, LinkedIn or Instagram, such as when you post a status update, upload a photo, or comment on a friend's story.
It also includes the information you choose to share when you take an action, such as when you add a friend, like a Page or a website, add a place to your story and find friends.
Your name, profile pictures, networks, email and User ID are treated just like information you choose to make public.
Information others share about you
We receive information about you from your friends and others, such as when they upload your contact information, post a photo of you, tag you in a photo or status update or at a location.
When people use LifeTyme, they may store and share information about you and others that they have, such as when they upload and manage their invites and contacts.
Other information we receive about you
We also receive other types of information about you:
1. We receive data about you whenever you interact with Facebook, LinkedIn or Instagram. Such as your news feed, your comments and updates, click on, view or otherwise interact with things.
2. When you post things like photos or videos on Facebook, LinkedIn or Instagram, we may receive additional related data (or metadata), such as the time, date, and place you took the photo or video.
3. We receive data from the computer, mobile phone or other device you use to access Facebook, including when multiple users log in from the same device. This may include your IP address and other information about things like your internet service, location, the type (including identifiers) of browser you use, or the pages you visit. For example, we may get your GPS or other location information so we can tell you if any of your friends are nearby.
4. We may receive data whenever you visit a game, application, or website that uses Facebook Platform or visit a site with a Facebook feature (such as a social plugin), sometimes through cookies. This may include the date and time you visit the site; the web address, or URL, you're on; technical information about the IP address, browser and the operating system you use; and, if you are logged in to Facebook, your User ID.
We also put together data from the information we already have about you and your friends. For example, we may put together data about you to determine which friends we should show you in your News Feed.
When we use the phrase "public information" (which we sometimes refer to as "Everyone information"), we mean the information you choose to make public, as well as information that is always publicly available.
Information you choose to make public
Choosing to make your information public is exactly what it sounds like: anyone, including people off of LifeTyme, will be able to see it.
Choosing to make your information public also means that this information:
1. can be associated with you (i.e., your name, profile pictures, User ID, etc.) even off LifeTyme;
2. can show up when someone does a search on LifeTyme or on a public search engine;
When others share information about you, they also choose to make it public.
Information that is always publicly available
The types of information listed below are always publicly available, and are treated just like information you decided to make public.
1. Name: This helps your friends and family find you. If you are uncomfortable sharing your real name, you can always delete your account.
2. Profile Pictures: These help your friends and family recognize you. If you are uncomfortable making any of these photos public, you can always delete it from Facebook or Instagram.
3. Network: This helps you see whom you will be sharing information with. If you are uncomfortable making your network public, you can leave the network.
4. Wall: Your profile page, which can be seen when you login or by clicking the view profile link after navigating to the home tab when signed in is currently publicly available.
5. User ID: These allow you to give out a custom link to your Page, receive email at your listed email address, and help make LifeTyme Platform possible.
Usernames and User IDs
A User ID (or LifeTyme URL) is a custom link to your profile that you can give out to people or post on external websites. User ID.s appear in the URL on your profile page. We also use your User ID to identify your LifeTyme account.
If someone has your User ID, they can use it to access information about you through the LifeTyme website. For example, if someone has your User ID, they can type life-tyme.com/users/User ID into their browser and see your public information as well as anything else you've let them see. Specifically, they can access your public wall.
How we use the information we receive
We use the information we receive about you in connection with the services and features we provide to you and other users like your friends and our partners. For example, we may use the information we receive about you:
1. as part of our efforts to keep LifeTyme products, services and integrations safe and secure;
2. to protect LifeTyme's or others' rights or property;
3. for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research and service improvement.
Granting us this permission not only allows us to provide LifeTyme as it exists today, but it also allows us to provide you with innovative features and services we develop in the future that use the information we receive about you in new ways.
While you are allowing us to use the information we receive about you, you always own all of your information. Your trust is important to us, which is why we don't share information we receive about you with others unless we have:
1. received your permission;
2. given you notice, such as by telling you about it in this policy; or
3. removed your name or any other personally identifying information from it.
Of course, for information others share about you, they control how it is shared.
We store data for as long as it is necessary to provide products and services to you and others, including those described above. Typically, information associated with your account will be kept until your account is deleted. For certain categories of data, we may also tell you about specific data retention practices.
Deleting your account
When you delete an account, it is permanently deleted from LifeTyme. In order to delete your account please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject as Deletion with your name and User ID. It typically takes about one month to delete an account, but some information may remain in backup copies and logs for up to 90 days. You should only delete your account if you are sure you never want to use it again.
Certain information is needed to provide you with services, so we only delete this information after you delete your account. Some of the things you do on LifeTyme aren.t stored in your account, like posting to a Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram or sending a message (where your friend may still have a message you sent, even after you delete your account). That information remains after you delete your account.
Sharing and finding you on Facebook
Control each time you post
Whenever you post content (like a status update or comment), its settings are determined by the respective service you use. For example if you comment to Facebook, and have your settings for status updates set to private, the status update will be private. Any comments will be public or private depending on the settings your friend has chosen for the object you choose to comment on.
Always think before you post. Just like anything else you post on the web or send in an email, information you share on LifeTyme can be copied or re-shared by anyone who can see it.
When you comment on or "like" someone else's story, or write on their timeline, that person gets to select the audience. For example, if a friend posts a Public story and you comment on it, your comment will be Public. Currently all posts from LifeTyme are public on LifeTyme.
Control over your timeline
People on LifeTyme may be able to see certain followers/following, even if they cannot see your entire list of followers/following.
Some things (like your name, profile pictures and most recent posts) do not have sharing icons because they are currently always publicly available. In the future more sharing controls will be added into LifeTyme.
Finding you on LifeTyme
To make it easier for your friends to find you, we allow anyone with your name to find you through the LifeTyme search bar at the top of the user page pages. Additional tools will soon be added.
Access on phones and other devices
Once you share information with your friends and others, they may be able to sync it with or access it via their mobile phones and other devices. For example, if you share a photo on Facebook, someone viewing that photo could save it using LifeTyme tools or by other methods offered by their device or browser. If one of your friends accesses LifeTyme on one of their devices, your information (such as the things you post or photos you share) may be stored on or accessed by their device.
LifeTyme Pages are public pages. Companies use Pages to share information about their products. Celebrities use Pages to talk about their latest projects. And communities use pages to discuss topics of interest, everything from baseball to the opera.
Because Pages are public, information you share with a Page is public information. This means, for example, that if you post a comment on a Page, that comment may be used by the Page owner off LifeTyme, and anyone can see it.
When you "like" a Page, you create a connection to that Page. The connection is added to your Facebook timeline and your friends may see it in their News Feeds. You may be contacted by or receive updates from the Page, such as in your News Feed and your Facebook messages. You can remove the Pages you've "liked" through Facebook.
Some Pages contain content that comes directly from the Page owner. Page owners can do this through online plugins, such as an iframe, and it works just like the games and other applications you use through Facebook. Because this content comes directly from the Page owner, that Page may be able to collect information about you, just like any website.
Page administrators may have access to insights data, which will tell them generally about the people that visit their Page (as opposed to information about specific people). They may also know when you.ve made a connection to their Page because you.ve liked their Page or posted a comment.
Public search engines
Your LifeTyme profile may be accessible from a search engine.
Cookies, pixels and other similar technologies
Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored on your computer, mobile phone or other device. Pixels are small blocks of code on webpages that do things like allow another server to measure viewing of a webpage and often are used in connection with cookies.
We use technologies like cookies, pixels, and local storage (like on your browser or device, which is similar to a cookie but holds more information) to provide and understand a range of products and services.
We use these technologies to do things like:
1. make LifeTyme easier or faster to use;
2. enable features and store information about you (including on your device or in your browser cache) and your use of LifeTyme;
3. monitor and understand the use of our products and services; and
4. to protect you, others and LifeTyme.
For example, we may use them to know you are logged in to LifeTyme or to know when you are interacting with each post.
Cookies and things like local storage help make LifeTyme work, like allowing pages to load faster because certain content is stored on your browser or by helping us authenticate you to deliver personalized content.
You can remove or block cookies or other similar technologies or block or remove other data stored on your computer or device (such as by using the various settings in your browser), but it may affect your ability to use LifeTyme or other websites and apps.

Responding to legal requests and preventing harm
We may access, preserve and share your information in response to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order or subpoena) if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States where we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards. We may also access, preserve and share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud and other illegal activity; to protect ourselves, you and others, including as part of investigations; and to prevent death or imminent bodily harm. Information we receive about you, including financial transaction data related to purchases made with Facebook Credits, may be accessed, processed and retained for an extended period of time when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations concerning possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent harm.

In all of these cases our partners must agree to only use your information consistent with the agreement we enter into with them, as well as this Data Use Policy.
Security and bugs

Unless we make a change for legal or administrative reasons, or to correct an inaccurate statement, we will give you seven (7) days to provide us with comments on the change. If we receive more than 1000 comments concerning a particular change, we will put the change up for a vote. The vote will be binding on us if more than 30% of all active registered users as of the date of the notice vote.
