privacy policy


Last updated July 27, 2011

Capito Life Technologies, Inc (the "CLT") takes your personal information very seriously and aims to protect your privacy through our privacy protection policy which may be updated from time to time by publishing the amended version on the textWeight website at www.textweight.com (the "Website"). The Website, including all of its features and content, and the mobile information service related thereto, including all of its features and content (the “Mobile Service”) (collectively, the “Services”) assists registered users to track their weight and meet their personal goals. Registered users will receive scheduled SMS text message prompts to their mobile phone reminding them to weigh themselves and reply via text message with their weight. The Services will take into account personal preferences to schedule delivery of text message prompts and provide appropriate tips to help users to meet their goals. We will use the information provided regularly to fine tune messages to the progress being made toward the user’s personal goals.

This Privacy Policy outlines how we protect your Personally Identifiable Information ("PII"), what PII we may collect, and how we may use that PII. This Privacy Policy does not cover our use of any PII collected through any means other than the Services. This Privacy Policy is incorporated by reference and is hereby deemed a part of the Terms and Conditions of Use of the Website which can be found at www.textweight.com/terms.

We Respect Your Privacy

CLT respects your privacy and that of every individual who signs up for the Services, or provides us with PII via the interactive features of the Services. As used herein, “PII” means any information (i) that identifies or can be used to identify, contact, or locate the person to whom such information pertains, or (ii) from which identification or contact information of an individual person can be derived. PII includes, without limitation: your first and last name, date of birth, social security number, phone number, Internet Protocol address, physical address or email address.

Information We Collect

In connection with the Services we provide, we may ask you to provide only certain types of information, including your weight, behavior goals, gender, zip code, mobile number, email address, and/or other information to help provide the Services. Submitting such information to us constitutes your consent to our using your PII and other information you provide in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Please be aware that this Privacy Policy and any choices you make on the Website do not necessarily apply to PII you may have provided to us in connection with other separately operated products or services that we provide.

How We Use the Information

We use the PII you provide to deliver the Services or information you have requested, to personalize and thereby improve your experience, to deliver customer support, to improve the Services, to enforce our agreements and policies, to resolve disputes, to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, and to design new services. We may also use the PII you provide to notify you about other related services.

We Do Not Share Your Personally Identifiable Information

We do not sell, rent, or lease or otherwise share your PII to or with any third party (although we may share information other than PII in the form of aggregated and de-identified information collected from users of our Services, as set forth below).

Who Has Access to Your Personal Information

From time-to-time, we may share with third parties aggregated and de-identified information collected from you and/or other users of our Services without your consent. This information will not include any PII.

Within CLT, we restrict access to your PII to those employees with a need to know in order to resolve problems with the Services, make improvements to the Services, provide customer support, or to address suspected violations of the Terms and Conditions of Use of the Services. We may, on occasion, hire other companies to provide services on our behalf who may need to have access to certain PII in order to provide us with such services. While we will attempt to get such third parties to agree to protect your PII, we cannot assure that such third parties will agree to do so.

Disclosures Required by Law

We may access and/or disclose PII if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on us; or (b) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of our services or members of the public. To the extent practicable and legally permitted, we will attempt to advise you prior to any such disclosure, so that you may seek a protective order or other relief limiting such disclosure.

Your continued use of the Service after any changes to the Privacy Policy have been posted will be considered acceptance of those changes.
