Facebook

As an advertiser on Facebook and through the business and group Facebook pages, Apogeo Fitness may collect content or information from a Facebook user. Such information may be used in the same manner specified in this Privacy Policy. You consent to the collection of such information. Apogeo Fitness abides by Facebook’s Data Use Restrictions.

Any ad data collected, received or derived from our Facebook ad (“Facebook advertising data”) is only shared with someone acting on behalf of the company, such as a service provider. The Company is responsible for ensuring that my service providers protect any Facebook advertising data or any other information obtained from Apogeo Fitness, limit the use of all of that information, and keep it confidential and secure.

Apogeo Fitness does not use Facebook advertising data for any purpose (including retargeting, commingling data across multiple advertisers’ campaigns, or allowing piggybacking or redirecting with tags), except on an aggregate and anonymous basis (unless authorized by Facebook) and only to assess the performance and effectiveness of my Facebook advertising campaigns.

The Company does not use Facebook advertising data, including the targeting criteria for a Facebook ad, to build, append to, edit, influence, or augment user profiles, including profiles associated with any mobile device identifier or other unique identifiers that identify any particular user, browser, computer or device.

The Company does not transfer any Facebook advertising data (including anonymous, aggregate, or derived data) to any ad network, ad exchange, data broker or other advertising or monetization related service.

Affiliate Disclosure

“Apogeo Fitness, LLC is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com, amazonsupply.com, or myhabit.com.”

OK, that’s the required language that Amazon says the company has to disclose that we are an affiliate. Here’s what it really means.

You’ll come across links in our articles or on the resources page. Some of these links are affiliate links, which means that we will receive a small commission if you make a purchase.

Those small commissions add up and help support the costs to run the site and provide great content to you.

These commissions do not come as an added expense to you, nor do they influence the products or services that are recommended.

On a personal note, I understand and value to trust that you’ve placed in me, and in Apogeo Fitness, LLC.  I also understand how fast I can lose that trust by recommending sub-par products and services. What you’ll see on this site are things that I have tried myself.

I sincerely thank you for being a reader of Apogeo Fitness.

–Heather
