Jonathan Roche Fitness Ventures LLC dba Breakthrough Health & Fitness (hereinafter, “BHF,” “us,” or “we”) provides a variety of online services and products, which may include subscription, newsletter, and update services and message boards, chat rooms, and other public forums (“Services”), to subscribers and users via email, at www.breakthroughhw.com and www.noexcusesworkouts.com and on other websites throughout the World Wide Web (the “Sites”).
Please note that the Policy applies only to BHF’s Services and Sites, but not to other websites to which we may link, or to advertisers on the Sites. Additionally, your use of the Services or the Sites is governed by BHF’s Terms and Conditions of Use, as well as by any other published rules pertaining to either a particular Site or Service.
The Information We Gather
BHF collects information from you at several different points on the Sites or through use of the Services in various ways. For example, BHF continually reviews its visitors’ demographics, interests, and pages viewed, and BHF may require its subscribers and users to provide certain personal information if they wish to participate in various programs and activities on the Sites. BHF is committed to respecting the privacy of the subscribers and users of the Sites and to provide a safe, secure user experience. However, BHF cannot ensure that all of your personally identifiable information and communications will remain private and will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Policy. Therefore, although we maintain and make every effort to comply with industry privacy standards, we do not promise, nor should you expect, that your personally identifiable information or private communications will always remain private in all circumstances.
Message Board and Chats
Among the many Services which BHF offers subscribers on the Sites, we may provide message boards and chat rooms. Please be aware that any visitor may read your postings on a message board or in a chat room. Furthermore, any information that you may post to a message board or in a chat room, including your profile information, will be disclosed and available to all users of that message board or chat room, and will therefore no longer be private. BHF cannot guarantee the security of such information that you disclose or communicate online in public areas such as message boards and chat rooms, and you do so at your own risk. BHF reserves the right to republish your postings from message boards or chat rooms elsewhere on the Web in any format.
How We Use the Information That We Gather
BHF may place Internet cookies on your hard drive. Internet cookies are small files that may be placed on your hard disk for record-keeping purposes. Cookies are used to (a) remind us of who you are in order to deliver you better service; (b) estimate our audience size by determining repeat usage of the Web site to help target advertisements based on user interests and behavior; (c) track your progress and entries in promotions, sweepstakes and contests, if any; and (d) measure certain traffic patterns for use as a research tool to understand how our users’ habits are similar or different from one another. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. By not accepting cookies, some Web pages may not display properly or you may not be permitted to access certain information.
BHF may also collect IP addresses (the Internet address of a computer) to track a user’s session while the user remains anonymous. We analyze this data for certain trends in statistics, such as which parts of our site users are visiting and how long they spend there. In general, we do not link your IP addresses to anything personally identifiable to you.
Disclosure of Personal Information in the Event of Merger or Sale of Assets
BHF, its parent, subsidiaries, or affiliates, could merge with or be acquired by another business entity, or all or substantially all of their respective assets could be acquired. Should such a combination, acquisition, or transaction occur, you should expect that BHF will share some or all of your personally identifiable information with the acquiring or merged entity in order to continue serving you and others information, updates, and offers concerning the Sites or Services.
Co-branded and Other Affiliated Sites
Certain information or Services offered or provided through the Sites may, from time to time, be provided on or through other websites operated by or in conjunction with third party providers (“Partners”). These websites and the features thereon may have the same “look and feel” as BHF’s Sites or Services. BHF terms these websites “co-branded sites,” and often times a Partner’s logo or name may appear on the website, or the Partner’s name may appear in the URL. Although BHF will continue to own any personally identifiable information collected about you from one of these co-branded sites, such information may be shared by BHF with that Partner.
Third Party Links
BHF places a priority on the security of personally identifiable information, and we undertake reasonable security measures to protect the data that resides on our servers. BHF also uses secure server software (SSL) to process all transactions which occur on the Sites. SSL encrypts all of your personal information transmitted over the Internet, including your credit card number, name, and address. However, no security system is impenetrable. BHF cannot warrant or guarantee the security of its servers, nor can it guarantee that information supplied by subscribers or other users will not be intercepted while being transmitted to BHF over the Internet.
BHF’s policy is that it does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from subscribers under 18 years of age. The Services or Sites are not directed or intended for minors. If you are under 18 years of age, you should not register or provide personally identifiable information on any of the Sites. If you are the parent or guardian of a person under the age of 18 whom you believe has disclosed personally identifiable information to BHF, please contact BHF at email@example.com so that we may delete and remove such person’s information from our systems.
Correction/Updating Personal Information
If your personally identifiable information changes (such as your address, zip code), or if you no longer desire to use or access one of the Sites or Services, BHF encourages you to correct, update, or remove the personal information that you provided. This can be done at the privacy page on each of the Sites. Keep in mind, however, that even if you delete your account from BHF’s records, there will be residual information that will remain within BHF’s databases, access logs, and other records, which may or may not contain personally identifiable information.

If BHF makes changes to any of the terms or conditions of this Policy, the changes will be posted in this document so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information and to whom we will disclose it. We reserve the right to change, modify, add, or remove portions of this Policy at any time, and any changes will become effective immediately upon being posted unless BHF advises you otherwise. Your continued use of the Services or the Sites after this Policy has been amended will be deemed to be your continued acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Policy and the Terms and Conditions of Use, as amended.
