Notice of Change
Types of Personal Information We Collect
When you use our Sites, we collect your personal information. Personal information refers to information that directly identifies or can be used to determine the identity of a person. This information may include:
Personal Information Collected from Our Sites
Our registration requires that you provide us with personal information. This information is used to get in touch with you and to process your registration. We will also use this information to contact you about the services we offer, as well as to send you any updates.
We will also gather your personal information when you send us an e-mail. We will use your personal information to respond to your e-mail, and we may use your personal information to send you notifications about our services.
We may collect personal information passively, while you are visiting or interacting with the Sites. We call this “passive” collection since you may not know that this information is being collected when you visit or interact with the Sites. This information may consist of the following items: website visitors’ IP address, IP address-related information, network configuration information, network device information, browser plug-in type and versions, and operating system.
Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Similar Technologies
2. Referrers and Other Non-Personal Information
inKin collects information through “referrers,” IP addresses and various environmental variables. A “referrer” is information the web browser passes along to the inKin web server that references the URL from which you came. The “IP address” is a number used by computers on the network to identify your computer so that data can be transmitted to you. “Environmental variables” include, among other things, the domain from which you access the Internet, the time you accessed the Sites, the type of web browser and operating system or platform used, the names of the pages you visit while on our Sites, and the Internet address of the website you then visit. We collect all of this information to allow us to detect broad demographic trends, to provide information tailored to your interests and to enhance your experience on inKin’ Sites.
To help us improve our Sites and to ensure that we make every effort to provide you with information that is of interest to you, we may merge your information with click-stream data and other data we have, including offline data. We will provide notice of this, as well as an opportunity to opt-out of it, at the time and place of information collection and before data is entered into our system. We may also develop a profile on you based upon the pages within our Sites that you visit.
We may utilize other third-party data analytics tools to identify how users engage with the Sites and to provide us with information regarding our users.
We also collect information from you directly, at the time that you supply information to us via the Sites. For instance, if you contact us to subscribe to our membership, ask questions, provide fitness and health-related data, provide data collected by application during use (for example, heart rate), provide us feedback about the Sites or any of our services, we may store your communications, including any personal information you include in them, so we can effectively provide our services or respond to you. If you do not want us to directly collect your personal information, please do not provide it to us.
We may also collect or receive information from other sources including third-party information providers and third-party platforms. For example, we use Intercom and Facebook to communicate with our members and collect feedback. This information may be used to supplement your profile, and it will be combined with other information we collect.
We use your information primarily as necessary to provide you with the Sites, including in one or more of the following ways:
Customize User Experiences. We may use your personal information to create customized experiences, or to provide you information or services tailored to your interests and preferences. We may use your IP address and other similar information to make our service easier to use and navigate as well as to personalize the content provided on the Sites.
Communications. We also use your information to communicate with you about your account, inquiries, our company, and related news, as well as to send you promotional emails, surveys, newsletters, or notifications.
Service Improvement. If you choose to create an account on our platform and participate in our services, we will collect the information that you disclose and analyze the data to discover new facts that could help us better understand our services. We may use this information for our internal business purposes, such as research to improve our services.
Advertising, Marketing, and Promotions. We may use your information for generating web analytics to compile user information for marketing purposes, advertising, conducting marketing analysis, providing you with recommendations for products and services based on your profile, and promotional material planning and distribution.
Service and Web Services Improvement. We may use the information about your use of our services and your other activities on the Sites to monitor user traffic patterns and to try to analyze what our users prefer so that we can design better services. We may analyze the information that is collected through cookies and other tracking technologies to help us improve our function and to modify the services and information that we provide.
Other Legitimate Business Reasons. We may also use your information for other legitimate business reasons.
We may share or disclose your personal information to the following categories of entities and for the following reasons:
With members of inKin and non-members, including but not limited to vendors, wellness platforms’ admins, publishers and advertisers, we rent, sell, share, and/or disclose limited categories of personal information, including: your name and email address.
With our affiliates, strategic partners, agents, third-party marketers, or other unaffiliated parties who are offering products or services that we believe may be of interest to you or who require your personal information, for research, administrative, and/or internal business purposes.
With third parties, to assist us in operating and enhancing the offerings of the Sites, conducting our business, providing our services to you, and for our marketing and advertising purposes.
To third parties, for any corporate reorganization process including, but not limited to, mergers, acquisitions, and sales of all or substantially all of our assets.
With law enforcement, government agencies, and other third parties, for complying with the law, enforcing our website policies, or protecting our or others’ rights, property, or safety.

Opting Out of Marketing Communications
If you would like to unsubscribe to any of our services or would like us to remove you from commercial communications, e.g. any of our online mailing lists, you may do so by sending an e-mail to email@example.com. Please include your name and email address in the body of the message.
In some cases, inKin may also provide you with an opportunity to opt-out of some services in e-mail messages that you receive from us. For commercial e-mails, in particular, you may opt out by clicking the “unsubscribe” link in such e-mails. We will process your requests as soon as possible, but please be aware that it may take us some time to respond to your request and, in some circumstances regarding opt-out requests, you may receive a few more messages until your request is processed.
Our Sites may link to third-party websites from other companies, such as to relevant online resources and third-party websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such other websites. If you have any questions about how these other websites use your information, you should review their policies and contact them directly. We are not responsible for the actions of third parties.
Please note that some of your profile information may be exposed publicly when you participate in the Sites, such as by posting content, chatting with other users, or commenting on content. PLEASE BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL WHEN DISCLOSING ANY INFORMATION IN PUBLIC POSTING AREAS. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE USE BY OTHERS OF THE INFORMATION THAT YOU DISCLOSE IN PUBLIC POSTING AREAS.
While we implement the above security measures, you should be aware that 100% security is not possible. It is important that you protect and maintain the security of your account credentials and you need to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account. We may use third-party products and services to secure or store your information. Please understand that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. Understand that any information that you transfer to us is done at your own risk. If we learn of a data security systems breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the Sites or providing personal information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the Sites. We may post a notice via the Sites if a security breach occurs. We may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us in these circumstances. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive a written notice of a data privacy or security breach. If you have reason to believe that your personal information that we have collected or our system security has been breached or if you have any questions about the security of inKin’ Sites, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Personal Information of Children Under the Age of 13
inKin does not target children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from any child under the age of 13 without parental consent. When we do receive such information, we delete it as soon as we discover it and do not knowingly use it or share it with third parties.
In the event if all or part of our assets are sold or acquired by another party, or in the event of a merger, you grant us the right to assign your personal information collected via the Sites.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits visitors to the Sites who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please contact us by e-mailing us at email@example.com.
We do not share personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you consent to such disclosure. If you do ask us to share your personal information with a third party for its marketing purposes, we will only share information in connection with that specific promotion, as we do not share information with any third party (other than our service providers) on a continual basis.
At this time our Sites do not recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms, which may include ‘do not track’ instructions.
