Cookies

Like many other websites, That Fitster website uses cookies. A Cookie is a small file of letters and numbers sent by an organisation which asks permission from your browser to be placed on your hard drive to allow that website to recognise when you visit. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes. Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. They collect statistical data about your browsing actions and patterns and do not identify you as an individual. For example, we use Google Analytics to research user activities on our website in order to enhance its performance and usability. In the course of conducting this research Google places a First Party session ‘cookie’ on your browser and collects aggregate information to enable us to see what people view on the website and for how long. The use of cookies enables us to improve our website, deliver effective marketing and offer a more personalised service. You can choose to accept or decline cookies.

It is possible to switch off cookies by adjusting your browser preferences or using a dedicated browser extension.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

No-one. Your privacy is important to us and we confirm that we will never release your personal data to any third party for their mailing or marketing purposes.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
