We use your personal information for the purposes described in this Policy and/or any privacy notice provided for specific Services. Such purposes include, but are not limited to:
3. Your Choices
When you sign up for the Service, we ask you to provide personal information. If we use this information in a manner different than those described in this Policy and/or in the specific service notices, then we will ask for your consent prior to such use. If you no longer wish to receive email notifications from BendFIT, please let us know by contacting us. Please specify which notifications you no longer wish to receive and provide your exact name, email address and/or physical address so that we can do our best to ensure that you stop receiving the notifications that you no longer wish to receive. Please note that you will continue to receive communications related to our transaction(s) and relationship with you.
If we propose to use personal information for any purposes other than those described in this Policy and/or in the specific service notices, and you decline, BendFIT may not be able to provide its Service to you.
We may partner with third-party ad networks and other ad serving providers (“Advertising Providers”) that serve ads on our behalf and others’ on non-affiliated platforms. Some of those ads may be personalized, meaning that they are intended to be relevant to you based on information Advertising Providers collect about your use of the Website and other sites or apps over time, including information about relationships among different browsers and devices. This type of advertising is known as interest-based advertising.
BendFIT adheres to the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Principles in connection with this interest-based advertising activity. You can visit www.aboutads.info or www.youradchoices.com/AppChoices to learn more about interest-based advertising and how to opt out of this advertising by companies participating in the DAA self-regulatory program. If you delete your cookies, reset your device advertising identifier, or use a different browser or mobile device, you will need to renew your opt-out choices. You may also be able to limit data collection for advertising purposes using tools available on your device. Note that electing to opt out will not stop advertising from appearing in your browser or applications. It may make the ads you see less relevant to your interests. Even if you opt out, Advertising Providers may continue to collect data for other purposes, including analytics and other operational purposes.
We may also work with third parties that collect data about your use of the Website and other sites or apps over time for non-advertising purposes. For example, BendFIT uses Google Analytics and other third-party services to improve the performance of the Website and for analytics and marketing purposes. For more information about how Google Analytics collects and uses data when you use our Website, visit www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/, and to opt out of Google Analytics, visit tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.
When you use the Service, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected, or removed before processing such requests, and we in some cases decline to process requests in certain circumstances. In any case where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.
4. Data Security
We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices, and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal information.
We restrict access to personal information to BendFIT employees, contractors, and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop, or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
However, please note that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so while BendFIT strives to protect your information, BendFIT cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you voluntarily give to BendFIT.
5. Website Areas Beyond BendFIT’s Control
BendFIT may choose various third party websites to link to, link from, and frame within, the Website. BendFIT also may participate in co-branding and other relationships to offer e-commerce and other services and features to its users. However, even if the third party is affiliated with BendFIT, we have no control over these linked sites, each of which has separate privacy and data collection practices independent of BendFIT. We have no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions and are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any such websites. Please make sure you are comfortable with the privacy practices of every site you visit before providing the site with your personal information. These linked sites are only for your convenience and you therefore access them at your own risk.

We will process and store your personal information only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage, or as permitted by law.
