Why and how we use (process) your personal data

We use the personal data we collect from you in the following ways:

To provide the features of the Site, App, and services you request

When you use our Site and App, we will use your data to provide the product or service you have selected.  For example, if you make a purchase on our App, or participate in an event or promotion, we will use the contact information you give us to communicate with you about the purchase, event or promotion.

If you use our App to track your fitness activity or physical characteristics, we will collect this data and store it so that you can review it in the App.   Your fitness activity data may include data you enter about your activity as well as data collected by your device during the course of your activity such as location data and movement data.  We may use this activity data to calculate further information about your activity, such as total classes completed so that the calculated information can be provided to you as part of the functionality of the App.

In many cases, to use particular features within our Site, App, and services you may need to provide niix with additional data or additional consent to use particular data in a certain way.  For example, to share content on social media, you may be required to provide your social media account credentials.

To communicate information about our products, services, events and for other promotional purposes 

When you create a niix user account, we may use the information you provide as well as information from other niix sources, such as your use of niix’s Site and App, your visits to or purchases made in niix stores, your participation in niix events and contests to send you personalized communications on products and services that may be interesting for you.

To operate, improve and maintain our business, products and services

We may use the data you provide to us to operate our business.  For example, when you make a purchase, we may use that information for accounting, auditing and other internal functions.  As another example, we may use data about how you use our products and services to enhance your user experience and to help us diagnose technical and service problems and administer our Site and App.

To protect our or others’ rights, property or safety 

We may also use data about how you use our Site and App to prevent or detect fraud, abuse, illegal uses and violations of our Terms and to comply with court orders, governmental request or applicable law.

For general research and analysis purposes

We use data about how our visitors use our Site, App and Services to understand customer behaviour or preferences.  For example, we may use information about how App users search for and find products to better understand the best ways to organize and present product offerings in our App.

Use (processing) of fitness activity and physical characteristic data

As discussed above, niix may collect data about your fitness activity or your physical characteristics in order to provide our App and other services.  Because of this intimate nature of this data, we strive to provide you with clear information about how this data will be used.  As this data may be considered sensitive in certain jurisdictions, we take appropriate measures in protecting and using this data and, where required by applicable law or under niix’s internal policies, obtain your consent for use.

Other purposes

We may also use your personal data in other ways and will provide specific notice at the time of collection and obtain your consent where necessary.

We use cookies and pixel tags to track our customer’s usage of the Site and to understand our customer’s preferences. This enables us to provide services to our customers and improve their online experience. We also use cookies and pixel tags to obtain aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction, to identify trends and obtain statistics so that we can improve our Site. There are generally three categories of cookies used on our Site:

  • Functional: These cookies are required for basic site functionality and are therefore always enabled. These include cookies that allow you to be remembered as you explore our Site within a single session or, if you request, from session to session. They assist in security issues and conforming to regulations.
  • Performance: These cookies allow us to improve our Site’ functionality by tracking usage. In some cases these cookies improve the speed with which we can process your request, allow us to remember site preferences you have selected. De-selecting these cookies may result in poorly-tailored recommendations and slow site performance.
  • Social media and advertising: Social media cookies offer the possibility to connect you to your social networks and share content from our Site through social media.  Advertising cookies (of third parties) collect information to help better tailor advertising to your interests, both within and beyond our Site. In some cases, these cookies involve the processing of your personal data. De-selecting these cookies may result in seeing advertising that is not as relevant to you or you not being able to link effectively with Facebook, Twitter, or other social networks and/or not allowing you to share content on social media.

You can always change your preferences by using the settings in your browser.

For a comprehensive and up-to-date summary of every third-party accessing your web browser (through niix Site or otherwise), we recommend installing a web browser plugin built for this purpose.  You can also choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings on each browser and device that you use. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you may not have access to many features that make our Site and App more efficient and some of our services will not function properly.
