6. AGGREGATED DATA AND ANALYTICS

Muscleware may share aggregated information (i.e., information about users, competitors, registrants that Muscleware combines so that it no longer identifies or references an individual user) and other anonymized information for regulatory compliance, industry and market analysis, demographic profiling, marketing and advertising, and other business purposes. Muscleware also provides aggregated statistics and insights that help its vendors, partners and promoters understand how people are engaging with the Muscleware Service and the Site.

Muscleware may also provide advertisers and product vendors with reports about the kinds of people seeing their advertisements and how their advertisements are performing on the Site or through the Muscleware Service; however, Muscleware does not share information that personally identifies you (e.g., information such as your name or e-mail address that by itself can be used to contact you or identifies who you are) unless you provide Muscleware with your explicit permission.



7. DATA TRANSFER AND STORAGE

Muscleware is a global company and as such may transfer, store and process your information within Muscleware's affiliated companies, agents, or with service providers based in various countries and continents, including (but not limited to) South America, North America, Europe and Asia. Any such data transfers are necessary to provide the services set forth in the Terms of Use.



8. SECURITY

Muscleware works diligently to implement and update technical and physical security measures to protect your personal information against unauthorised access, loss, destruction or alteration. Some of these measures include data encryption and firewalls. In the event of any actual or suspected unauthorised use of your information provided to Muscleware, the Site or any affiliated services, please contact Muscleware following the instructions in the "Contact Us" section below.



9. SAFETY OF MINORS

Use of Muscleware, the Site and any affiliated services is not intended and may not be used by individuals under the age of 16 located in Canada or the age of 13 in the United States (or under a lower age if permitted by the laws of their residence). Muscleware does not knowingly collect personal data from minors or allow them to register for athletic shows or competitions. If it comes to Muscleware's attention that it has collected personal data from a minor, Muscleware may delete this information without notice. If you believe that this has occurred, please contact info@muscleware.com.



10. YOUR RIGHTS

Muscleware acknowledges your right to access your personal data. Whenever you use Muscleware's services, Muscleware aims to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, Muscleware strives to give you ways to update it quickly or delete it - unless Muscleware retains this information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, Muscleware may ask you to verify your identity before acting on your request.

Muscleware may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (e.g., developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems).

Where Muscleware can provide information access and correction, it will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. If your data is incorrect, incomplete, or irrelevant you can ask to have the information corrected or removed. To access or update your personal information, contact info@muscleware.com with your current contact information and the personal information you would like to access.
