Supplemental Privacy Policy

(You must read and agree to the Supplemental Privacy Policy before submitting this form)
This is the Supplemental Privacy Policy for the Body-for-LIFE website and Body-for-LIFE Challenge (collectively, “Body-for-LIFE”), which is provided by Abbott Nutrition, a division of Abbott Laboratories (“Abbott”). Body-for-LIFE helps you to achieve a strong, healthy body and communicate with others taking part in Body-for-LIFE. Body-for-LIFE allows you to upload personal information to the Body-for-LIFE website and send us information, including health information, by post using the Body-for-LIFE Challenge Official Entry Kit.

In addition to this Supplemental Privacy Policy, our collection of information about you through Body-for-LIFE, and our use of that information, is subject to Abbott’s International Privacy Policy, which you can review by clicking here. This Supplemental Privacy Policy provides information about our data handling practices that are specific to Body-for-LIFE, and the terms of this Supplemental Privacy Policy are in addition to any terms appearing in the International Privacy Policy.

1. How does Abbott collect information about you

A. Body-for-LIFE website
Abbott collects information from the Body-for-LIFE website in two ways.

1. De-identified information
When you access the Body-for-LIFE website and related websites, we automatically gather certain non-personally identifiable information about your computer and your use of the Body-for-LIFE websites using various technologies, such as cookies and web beacons. Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your computer’s hard disk by a website. Web beacons (also referred to as GIF files, pixels or Internet tags) help Abbott recognize a unique cookie on your browser. Your Internet browser automatically transmits to Abbott websites some of this unidentifiable information, such as the URL of the website you just visited and the browser version your computer is operating. Please visit our International Privacy Policy for additional information about this type of information and our practices relating to it.

2. Personal information
When you register on the Body-for-LIFE website, we will ask you to provide certain personal information that identifies you (such as your name, mailing address, email address, date of birth and gender). As you set up your profile on the Body-for-LIFE website, we will ask you to create a Community Display Name, password and security question. The Community Display Name you create does not have to relate to your name or other information that could identify you.

Once you have registered on the Body-for-LIFE website, you will be able to participate in Body-for-LIFE website forums comprised of other Body-for-LIFE members (see the Body-for-LIFE Community Guidelines). You will also receive emails with expert advice and news on Body-for-LIFE. When posting messages in the Body-for-LIFE website forum(s), other users will be able to identify you only by your Community Display Name.

B. Body-for-LIFE Challenge
Body-for-LIFE members are also eligible to apply for the Body-for-LIFE Challenge (see Official Rules and Regulations of the Body-for-LIFE Challenge). Body-for-LIFE Challenge applicants are asked to provide us with the personal information described above and additional information, such as your starting weight, your 12-week weight, photographs that can identify you and information about which Abbott Nutrition or EAS products you use. We may associate that information with the fact that you are registered as a member of Body-for-LIFE.

You may also choose to provide us with additional information, such as your telephone number, occupation, height and health information (such as blood pressure, cholesterol and body fat %) if you wish. Further information on how we process your information can be found in the Body-for-LIFE Challenge Entrance Kit.

2. Where do we keep the information that we store?

A. Body-for-LIFE website
Personal information collected when you register on the Body-for-LIFE website is retained on servers in the U.S. Information that you choose to share with other Body-for-LIFE members in the Body-for-LIFE website forums may be transferred and made available in other countries outside the U.S where those Body-for-LIFE members are located.

B. Body-for-LIFE Challenge
Information you send to us by post as part of the Body-for-LIFE Challenge is retained in the U.S. at the following address: Abbott Nutrition, EAS/Body-for-LIFE Challenge, 3300 Stelzer Road, Columbus, OH 43219, United States of America.

C. International Transfer of Your Information
The U.S. may not offer the same level of privacy and confidentiality protection that you are used to in the country where you live. Where Abbott is responsible for storing the information you provide to us, then Abbott will handle such information in accordance with Abbott’s policies and applicable law. Abbott shall not be responsible for protecting the privacy of the information you choose to transmit in the Body-for-LIFE website forums to other Body-for-LIFE members who may be located outside the U.S. and over whom we have no control.

Please note that no method of transmitting or storing electronic data is ever completely secure, and we cannot guarantee that such information will never be accessed, used, or released in a manner that is inconsistent with this policy.

3. How do we use data?

A. Body-for-LIFE website
If you consented to our sending you communications regarding products and services, then we will send you information about such products and services by post, email, SMS or telephone. Abbott uses other information collected from the Body-for-LIFE website in two ways.

1. De-identified Information
The unidentifiable information that we automatically collect from you is used to make your use of the Body-for-LIFE website easier by allowing Abbott to provide a better service, customize the Body-for-LIFE website based on consumer preferences, compile statistics, analyze trends, and otherwise administer and improve the Body-for-LIFE website. Further information about how we use your unidentifiable information is described in our International Privacy Policy.

2. Personal Information
We may use and consolidate the personal information that we collect about you through the Body-for-LIFE website to respond to your questions and to provide you with efficient customer service. After you have entered personal information into the Body-for-LIFE website, Abbott may use certain identifying technologies to allow the Body-for-LIFE website and related websites to “remember” your personal preferences, such as sections the website(s) that you visit frequently and, if you choose, your Community Display Name. Further information about how we use your personal information is described in our International Privacy Policy.

B. Body-for-LIFE Challenge
Abbott uses the personal information and any health information that you submit on the Body-for-LIFE Challenge Official Entry Kit as follows:

1. Personal Information
Personal information sent to us using the Body-for-LIFE Challenge Official Entry Kit will be used to judge your entry into the Challenge in accordance with the Body-for-LIFE Challenge Official Rules and Regulations. Abbott may also use the personal information you submit in the Official Entry Kit (in whole or in part) for promotional and advertising purposes to promote EAS products, its business, and Body-for-LIFE worldwide and in any media and manner whatsoever. Further details can be found in the Body-for-LIFE Challenge Official Rules and Regulations.

2. Health Information
Any health information (such as blood pressure, cholesterol and body fat %) that you choose to provide to us on the Body-for-LIFE Challenge Official Entry Kit will be handled in the same way that we handle your personal information as described above. [In particular, your health information may be used in the U.S., the UK, Mexico and Canada, as well as other countries worldwide, for promotional and advertising purposes to promote EAS products, its business, and Body-for-LIFE. Use of your health information in this way could be in any manner whatsoever, including email, the Internet, post, SMS, telephone, and television. Further details can be found in the Body-for-LIFE Challenge Official Rules and Regulations.]

4. How long will Abbott store my personal information and health information

In general, Abbott will only store your personal information and health information for as long as it is needed to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, subject to applicable data retention periods imposed upon Abbott by applicable law.

5. How do we share personal information that we collect about you?
 
Although we may share personal information that we collect about you through Body-for-LIFE within Abbott, we generally do not share this information with third parties, except as described in our International Privacy Policy and the Body-for-LIFE Challenge Official Rules and Regulations.

We also may share this information with outside vendors, such as vendors that help us update and maintain the Body-for-LIFE website and judge the Body-for-LIFE Challenge, but we will instruct those vendors not to use any information that we share with them in a manner that is inconsistent with this Supplemental Privacy Policy and our International Privacy Policy.

We will not share information that we collect through Body-for-LIFE with any third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes.

6. What rights and choices do I have over my personal information?

If you want to opt out of receiving marketing emails from us about Body-for-LIFE, you can use the “opt-out” procedure listed at the bottom of any such marketing message that we send to you.

You also can email us at webmaster@abbott.com with the words “Deletion Request” in the subject line or write to us at the address provided in our International Privacy Policy. Any email you send should indicate the email address that you used to register with Body-for-LIFE, the email address to which your request relates (if different), and a statement that you wish to opt out of marketing communications relating to Body-for-LIFE. (Please note that, even if you opt out, we still may send you certain administrative communications, such as legal and account notices.)

You may request to remove, amend or correct your personal information by email to the same address or by writing to us at the address provided in our International Privacy Policy.

Please note that any changes to the information you submit as part of the Body-for-LIFE Challenge may effect your eligibility to continue participating in the Challenge. Please see the Body-for-LIFE Challenge Official Rules and Regulations for more details.

7. Will these privacy practices change?

We occasionally may change these privacy practices, so you should review this Supplemental Privacy Policy, and our International Privacy Policy, periodically. If we make material changes to our privacy practices that are specific to Body-for-LIFE, we will notify you of our new practices by email. For generally applicable material changes, we will notify you of our new practices by posting an update on our International Privacy Policy. In each case, we will indicate the date on which the policy was most recently changed so that you can easily determine if there are any updates.

8. Who should you contact with questions?

If you have questions about this Supplemental Privacy Policy or our privacy practices more generally, please email us at webmaster@abbott.com with the words “Supplemental Privacy Policy” in the subject line.
