Failure to collect a prize within thirty (30) days of notification of award constitutes forfeiture of the prize. If forfeited, the prize will remain the property of Sponsor. Another winner will not be selected.
Videos will be judged based on whether they meet the video creation and entry requirements, how well they follow the directives provided by BodyMedia, the quality of the video, whether the video provides good support for why the Entrant should be selected and whether the video is clever, convincing, engaging and/or innovative. A panel of ten (10) judges will evaluate submissions based on the judging criteria and will determine the winner, subject to verification of eligibility, continued participation, compliance with these Official Rules and a background check. The winner will be notified by phone, email or mail, at Sponsor’s discretion. Decisions of the judges are final and binding.

In general, you can visit many of our web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We may track your visit for trends and statistics, but you will remain anonymous unless you tell us who you are. Once you choose to give us your personal information, you are not anonymous to us.
Information you give us
We do not collect any personal information about you unless you voluntarily submit such information to us. Our web sites use registration and check out for you to request products and services. This registration process can consist of information such as your name, e-mail address, postal address, telephone or mobile number, and date of birth.

We do not knowingly collect personal information such as name and address.

Website Tracking Metrics
Use of personal information
We use the information you provide us to perform the services for which such data was collected. For example, if you sign up for an email newsletter, we will send the email newsletter to the address you provide us. BodyMedia will use your personal information for a number of purposes including the following:
We post customer testimonials on our web site which may contain personally identifiable information such as the customer's name. We do obtain the customer's consent prior to posting the testimonial to post their name along with their testimonial. If you want to remove your personal information that is being displayed on our website under public pages please send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
How about third parties?
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we use it responsibly. We do not share, sell, rent or otherwise disclose personal information to third parties for promotional purposes. We employ or partner with other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include processing credit card payments, shipping, web analytics, surveys and providing marketing assistance. These agents/service providers have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. We may sell non-personally identifiable information about our users generally. We also release personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law or protect the rights, property, or safety of BodyMedia, its users, or others.
Co-branding / Private Labeling
If you register and access the Activity Manager (activitymanager.bodymedia.com) through a co-branded or private label site (not a BodyMedia site), you are using a co-branded version of the Activity Manager. Your information and data may be shared with a third-party site through which you access the Activity Manager. This includes and is not limited to name, address, email, food logs, weight, body-fat-percentage, sensor-data, time recordings, and physiological data. We encourage you to read and understand the privacy policies of such third parties, as this policy does not cover their user of your information.
The Activity Manager provides the ability to share a read only view of your data with third party services, social networks, specific users and the general public. To permit any sharing of your data, including personally identifiable information, you must actively enable those sharing services or invite specific users. If you choose to share your information it may become publicly available and could be read, collected, and/or used by third parties, including other users, unknown to BodyMedia. The system also provides the ability to share full access of your Activity Manager account to specific users (for example, ProConnect). It is your responsibility to have an agreement with those users regarding their use and modification of information within your Activity Manager account. BodyMedia has no control over such uses and/or modifications and will not be liable to you for any disclosure of your personal information by anyone for whom you granted Activity Manager account access. You may disable sharing services or revoke individual access at any time. However, please keep in mind that the service or user may have already seen or retained a copy of the information. BodyMedia is not a "covered entity" or "business associate" under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 and the regulations promulgated thereunder ("HIPAA"). As a result, unless subject to the foregoing limited exception, HIPAA does not apply to the transmission of information by BodyMedia to any third party.
We use industry-standard methods to protect your personal information from unauthorized access. Among other techniques, we usually store such information on a computer behind our "firewall" in a secure location, and we often restrict the number of employees internally who can access such data.
All credit card information you supply online is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our databases to be accessed only as stated above. Regardless of these efforts, no data transmission over the Internet or computer storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
Choice, access, and correction of information
As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide certain information, even though it might be needed to take advantage of our features. Our site also provides you with the opportunity to choose not to receive communications from us and our partners. You have the following options for changing and modifying information previously provided or removing your information from our database.
Please note, if you have unsubscribed from any BodyMedia communications, due to production schedules, you may receive communications already in production.
BodyMedia's Activity Manager
The Activity Manager shows subscribers information such as their calorie burn and steps through the day. If you subscribe to our system we may ask for additional information, for example your weight. We only ask for information that is germane to the service.
The system uses an armband activity-monitor which records "armband data".
If you choose to self report your data (log your food, enter your weight, etc.), or wear a BodyMedia armband and upload armband-data to a BodyMedia service then:
