TRSP respects your privacy, and we created this privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) to explain how we collect, use and disclose your information. Capitalized terms that are not defined herein have the meaning given them in our Terms of Service. BY ACCESSING THE TRSP SERVICE AND/OR REGISTERING WITH US, YOU SIGNIFY THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THIS PRIVACY POLICY, INCLUDING OUR TERMS OF SERVICE TRAINING SERVICES AND WAIVER AGREEMENT, WHICH ARE INCORPORATED HEREIN BY REFERENCE.


1. Types of Information Collected.


A. Personal Information.


TRSP may ask you for some or all of the following types of information, which may be identifiable to you (collectively “Personal Information”) when you register with us: your name, email address, password, date of birth, gender and location. We may also ask you for (i) payment, billing and address information if you purchase any private coaching services or any customized training plans and (ii) any other additional information we may require from time to time or for the purpose of authenticating yourself or your account if we have reason to believe, in our sole discretion, that you may be violating the Terms of Service or for any other reason we deem necessary.


You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of all Personal Information you submit to TRSP. You can see, review and change your Personal Information and User Data by accessing your user account information through the Service.


B. Non-Personal Information


Cookies and Other Technologies. We may utilize cookies and other technologies, such as, web beacons (also known as “clear gifs” and “pixel tags”) to recognize you, customize your experience, and serve advertisements. Cookies are very small files placed on your computer, and they allow us to count the number of visitors to TRSP and distinguish repeat visitors from new visitors. They also allow us to save user preferences and track user trends. We do not link cookies or web beacons to any Personal Information. We may also enable advertisers and ad servers to promote third party products and/or services by placing advertisements on TRSP. These advertisers and ad servers may use cookies and/or web beacons to monitor information related to served advertisements. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by TRSP and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.
