Photos and videos that you upload to the Site may also contain personally identifiable information contained in the form of “metadata.” When describing your fitness goals or objectives, we may collect descriptions of personal health information. Credit card and payment information for paid services is handled by a third-party payment processor, and Kurriosity does have access to specific payment card account information.


At other times, Kurriosity may collect aggregated information that cannot be used to identify you.

Kurriosity will not use aggregated information in a way that can be linked directly back to individual members or visitors. This information may be provided to us by our advertising partners and third-party Service Providers.

We may analyze and share personally identifiable information with third parties that assist Kurriosity with its direct marketing purposes. For example, if you elect to continue to receive services, such as newsletters, Site updates, and event schedules via email or text messaging, our Internet Service Providers may provide those types of services. You will have the option to opt-out of such offerings at the time of registration and at the time you receive a particular email.  Your carriers usage rates will apply.


Kurriosity may use your personal information to contact you via mail, email, or telephone in order to give you updates about Kurriosity’s special events, new services, or other promotions that may be of interest to you.

Additional uses of your non-personal and personal information will allow us to tailor products and services specific to your needs, to help organize and manage member relationships and our business, to conduct business, to provide you with customer and guest support, to perform functions that are described to you at the time of collection, and to enforce our Site’s Terms and Conditions of Use.   We use the information we receive about you to offer content, services and features to you and other Kurriosity Users.  We may also share information about you with our advertisers and website and applications developers.


We may also use non-personal aggregate information to improve our Site. For example, our Internet Service Providers may report to us that there were a particular number of visitors to a certain area of our Site, or that a certain number of men or a certain number of women completed our registration form in particular areas of our Site. Such information may also be used to analyze the effectiveness of our business and advertising models.
