Privacy Policy

Body Wise International LLC. is committed to protecting your privacy. The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you as to what information may be collected from you when you visit our website (“the Site”) or when you become a Consultant or customer, how such information will be used by Body Wise and/or other persons or entities with whom such information may be shared, your choices regarding the collection, use and distribution of such information, your ability to edit, update, correct or delete such information and the security procedures that we have implemented to protect your privacy.

Notice

Collection of InformationAt different occasions you may be asked for certain types of personally identifiable information (e.g., your first and last name, mailing address, city, state, postcode, telephone number, email address, credit card number). We hope you will provide us with this information. However, if you do not want to disclose your personally identifiable information to us, please do not submit it. This does mean that in some cases we will not be able to provide you the service you have requested. We may also collect non-personally identifiable information from you when you visit the Site (e.g., your IP address, browser type, domain name, etc.). This information is collected and analyzed in the aggregate in order to improve the function and content of the Site. Use of Information

We use the information that is collected about you for a variety of purposes. You will be informed about these purposes at the time of collection. In general, however, we foresee the following uses:

  • Website visitors Information about you may be used to add you to our e-mail subscription list, provide your name to Body Wise Consultants in connection with your expressed interest in our products or business opportunity, analyze trends and statistics, enhance the operation of the Site, serve content and advertisements and send informational and promotional materials about Body Wise and other companies.
  • Customers Information about customers will in addition be used to provide customer service, confirm and fulfill your orders, ship your orders, and administer payments and resolve possible problems and disputes with dispatchers and other service providers.
  • Consultants Information about Consultants will in addition be used to provide Customer services, calculate earnings and bonuses, provide training on new products and services, and ensure compliance with the Consultant agreement and the company’s rules and regulations.

Choice

We have existing business relationships and may develop other relationships in the future with business partners. In these instances, we may share or otherwise allow access to information that is collected about you that will enable our business partners to contact you regarding products and services that may be of interest. At the time we collect your information you will be given the choice to accept or refuse the disclosure of your information for such marketing purposes, and for marketing by Body Wise.

Onward Transfers

We may employ vendors to perform functions on our behalf. Examples of such functions may include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, e-mail administrative functions, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These vendors are under a contractual obligation to use confidential data received from Body Wise only for purposes that fall within the functions for which they were hired. We may disclose information that we collect about you when we have reason to believe that this is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against persons or entities who may be harming you, us or others. We may also disclose information when we believe the law requires it. Genalogy Reports, which contain information on Consultants in a Consultant’s downline, including, but not limited to, name, address, identification number, telephone number, email address, fax number, level or rank, volume and sales statistics, are provided to Consultants in the strictest confidence and for the sole purpose of supporting the Consultants to further develop their Body Wise business. (The downline organization consists of all Consultants that were personally sponsored by a particular Consultant, and in turn, all other persons sponsored by those Consultants.) Genalogy Reports, including all data contained therein, constitute confidential, proprietary trade secrets of Body Wise. Consultants may not collect, distribute or gather confidential information or personal or aggregate information about other Body Wise Consultants or their customers, except in connection with their downline and solely for the purpose of promoting their Body Wise business, and to manage, motivate and train their downline. You need to be aware that Consultants who receive the Genalogy Reports may be based in countries that do not offer the same or a similar level of privacy protection as is available in your own country. However, Body Wise will take reasonable measures to ensure that the information is kept in confidence.

Security

We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we collect about you remains accurate, timely and secure. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure and while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee or warrant its complete security. We shall not be responsible for harm that you or any person may suffer as a result of a breach of confidentiality in respect to your use of the Site or any information you transmit to the Site.

Data Integrity

Personally identifiable information will be kept in active files or systems as long as needed to meet the purposes for which it was collected or as required to perform the contractual relationship with the Consultant and his/her up-line, and the commercial relationship with the customer. Body Wise will make reasonable efforts to ensure that the information is accurate and complete. ACCESS OR CORRECTIONS TO YOUR INFORMATION If you identify any inaccuracy in your personal information, or if you need to make a change or would like to verify such information, please contact us so that we may update your information in our records or you may go online to Body Wise’s web site and update your own information.
