Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Healthy Lives, we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the ongoing operation of one of our services.

Below is our privacy policy, which incorporates these goals. (Note: these were originally published under a Creative Commons ShareAlike license by Automattic).

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Healthy Lives collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Healthy Lives’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Healthy Lives’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Healthy Lives may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Healthy Lives also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blog. Healthy Lives only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Healthy Lives’s websites choose to interact with Healthy Lives in ways that require Healthy Lives to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Healthy Lives gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, Healthy Lives collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Healthy Lives. Healthy Lives does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Healthy Lives may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website or app. For instance, Healthy Lives may monitor the most popular blog posts on our site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Healthy Lives may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Healthy Lives does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Information We Collect from Other Sources

With your authorization, we may also obtain information about you from other sources. For example, if you create or log into your account through a social media service (like Google), we will receive information from that service (such as your username, basic profile information, and friends list) via the authorization procedures used by that service. The information we receive depends on which services you authorize and any options that are available.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Healthy Lives discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Healthy Lives’s behalf or to provide services available at Healthy Lives’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Healthy Lives’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Healthy Lives will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Healthy Lives discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Healthy Lives believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Healthy Lives, third parties or the public at large. If you have supplied your email address and consented to receiving emails from us, Healthy Lives may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Healthy Lives and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Healthy Lives takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Healthy Lives uses cookies to help Healthy Lives identify and track visitors, their usage of Healthy Lives website, and their website access preferences. Healthy Lives visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Healthy Lives’s website, with the drawback that certain features of Healthy Lives’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Healthy Lives, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Healthy Lives goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Healthy Lives may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.


Comments and other content submitted to the Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives or missed spam, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives and missed spam.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Healthy Lives may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Healthy Lives’s sole discretion. Healthy Lives encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
