Hi fit girl!

We think your privacy is very important. That’s why we would never ask you to share any unnecessary data with us. Any data that you do share with us is handled very cautiously and is never shared with third parties without your explicit consent. For example: If you take part in one of our contests that is linked to another brand, and you win, then we would first email you asking whether we can share your name and email address with the brand so that they can then send you your prize. Only once you’ve given your explicit consent will the brand receive your data. Privacy is important, girl!

How and why do we collect your data?

There are a few different ways in which we collect your data:

  • You can sign up to our newsletter in order to receive fun emails from us. In this case we will ask you your name and email address, and occasionally also your surname. When you sign up for one of our freebies, the free downloads page, or a contest, you can choose to also subscribe to our “regular” newsletter, that is your choice completely.
  • Through Google Analytics we can see the type of audience that visits our website. It is in this way that we can see which country or city you live in, which pages on Fitgirlcode you regularly visit, whether you’re a new or returning reader, etc. All of this is anonymous and cannot be traced back to you.The information we collect through Google Analytics is highly important to us as it gives us the opportunity to make the content that you are looking for. For example, if we see that our readers are mainly reading about our recipes then we will make sure to keep posting more recipes in order to give you what you want and need!
  • Via the tool Hotjar we track where you have clicked on our website and what your journey through our website looked like. This is also anonymous and cannot be traced back to you. We collect this information in order to find out how we can keep optimizing the site and where your frustrations with the site lie. It is our aim to make (and keep) Fitgirlcode.com as user-friendly as possible, which is why we need this information.
  • When you comment on one of our articles, WordPress asks you for your name and email address. We can see this information, however we do not collect it nor use it to send you unwanted emails or content.

If you were to buy one of our Guides, then the privacy policy of our webshop is relevant to your data. You can find that policy here.

The only ones who get insights into your data are we and third parties such as software tools that aim to improve your experience with Fitgirlcode. An example of this is the tool Mailchimp which allows us to send out our newsletters. These third parties are responsible for their own correct use and collecting of your data. We do not have any influence on this and thus cannot be held liable.
