Aggregated Non-Personal Data: We may disclose aggregated, non-personal data received from providing the Websites, including information that does not identify any individual, without restriction. Healthyactive.org may share demographic information with business partners, but it will be aggregated and de-personalized so that personal information is not revealed.

Service Providers: Healthyactive.org works with various organizations and individuals to help provide the Websites to you (“Service Providers“), such as website and data hosting companies and companies providing information regarding analytics, like Google Analytics. Healthyactive.org needs to associate with such third-party Service Providers to help us provide, operate, and market the Websites.

These third parties will only be given limited access to your information and may use your information only to perform tasks on our behalf. Any and all information we share with our Service Providers may include information you provide to us as well as information we collect about you, including but not limited to personal data and information from data collection tools like cookies, web beacons, and log files.

Healthyactive.org takes judicious steps to ensure that our Service Providers are informed that they are obligated to impartially protect your information on healthyactive.org’s behalf. If healthyactive.org is informed that a Service Provider is using or disclosing information improperly in any way, we will take reasonable steps to correct or end such improper use or disclosure.

We share your personal information with our Service Providers on the legal basis of healthyactive.org’s legitimate interests in providing you with the most optimal version of our Websites. Our engagement of Service Providers is necessary for us to provide the Websites, its products and/or services to you, particularly where these Service Provider companies play important roles like helping us keep our Websites operating, optimal and secure.

In some cases, service providers aren’t necessary for us to provide the Websites to users, but they help us make the Websites better, like helping us conduct research into how we could better serve our users to provide them the best experience. In these cases, we have a reasonable interest in working with Service Providers to make our Websites better.

Business Transactions: Healthyactive.org may acquire other businesses or their assets, sell our own business assets, or be involved in bankruptcy, mergers, acquisitions, reorganization or the sale of assets (a “Business Transaction“). Your information, including any personal data provided, may be among assets sold or transferred as part of a Business Transaction.

Safety and Lawful Requests: In case of lawful requests, such as court orders or subpoenas, or compliance with applicable laws, we may be required to disclose the Websites user information. As a general practice, we do not disclose user information unless we believe that the information requested from law enforcement or private litigants meets the legal standards that are applicable.

We may share your personal information to protect our interests or property if it is necessary to comply with applicable laws to prevent fraud or any illegal activity perpetrated through the Websites or while using the healthyactive.org name, or to protect the safety of any and all person(s).

This may include sharing information with lawyers, agents, other companies, or government agencies depending on the severity. None of the information provided in this Privacy Notice is intended to limit any legal defense(s) or objection(s) that you may have to a third party’s, including a government’s, request to disclose your information.
