If you use the Slim Nation mobile application, you may enter data into the application running locally on your iPhone, in order to set, track and manage your diet and exercise goals. This data may include your birth date, your height and weight, your gender, and specific details of the foods and drinks that you consume and the exercise you do. If you do not subscribe to Slim Nation or create an account at the Slim Nation website, your Personal data will remain on your iPhone and we will have no access to it.
If you subscribe to Slim Nation , you will be asked to provide your email address and to select a password. Subscribing to Slim Nation will automatically create an account at the Slim Nation website under your email address and password, and your Personal data will automatically be synched to your website account.

Use of personal information
We will treat your Personal data as confidential, and we will not share your personal information or Personal data with third parties without your permission, except in the limited circumstances described below.
We will use the personal information you give us to fulfill the services and products you request from us. This may include billing and shipping of products that you order, sending information that you have requested, or contacting you about products and services that you have purchased. In some circumstances we may use third party contractors to perform these services on our behalf. In such circumstances, we will only provide the contractor with the information needed to perform the services (for example, name and address if a contractor is delivering a product to you), and all contractors will be required to agree to confidentiality obligations with respect to your personal, non-public information.
If you do not opt-out of communications from Slim Nation, we may send you marketing notices including promotions of our products and services. You can opt-out of communications from Slim Nation at any time (see control of personal information below).
We may disclose your personal information when we reasonably believe that it is required by a law or legal process and to protect and defend the rights and interests of Slim Nation, its affiliates, suppliers, or users.

We may use and disclose personal data, in a form that does not identify any individual, to allow Slim Nation and our advertisers to present targeted advertising to you. We may disclose to third parties, including advertisers and potential business partners, aggregated statistics that we develop from Personal data. For example, we may disclose the total number of pounds lost by all Slim Nation users, the average weight loss of Slim Nation users, or generalized information about diet and exercise habits based on aggregated statistics developed from Personal data. This statistical information will not identify any individual.
