In the event that you receive a subpoena or other validly issued administrative or judicial process demanding details or parts of the Flykitt Program, you shall promptly provide Helicase with notice of these requests or requirements before making a disclosure so that Helicase may seek an appropriate protective order or other appropriate remedy, and you shall provide reasonable assistance to Helicase in obtaining any protective order. If a protective order or other remedy is not obtained or Helicase grants a waiver under this agreement, you may furnish that portion (and only that portion) of the Flykitt Program that, in the written opinion of counsel reasonably acceptable to Helicase, you are legally compelled or otherwise required to disclose. However, you shall make reasonable efforts to obtain reliable assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded to any part of the information or items disclosed or provided in this way.
All rights not expressly granted to you in these Conditions of Use are reserved and retained by Helicase or its licensors, suppliers, rightsholders, or other content providers.

Helicase cannot provide medical advice. The Flykitt Program and information provided on Helicase’ websites, including flykitt.com, is based on published research and does not necessarily take into account any person’s particular health status, nor is it a substitute for personal medical care. Nutritional supplements with a scientific basis in published research may be recommended as part of the Flykitt Program. However, food is the preferable carrier of nutrients in most instances. Information about performance and health matters changes constantly as new studies are done and new treatments are discovered. Helicase provides no warranty that it has integrated all available data and research.
1.9 No Guarantee of Results. Helicase does not guarantee the results of Flykitt Programs.
1.10 Providing Programs to Others.

Some recommendations may not be possible at the indicated times or at the indicated locations. You may encounter recommendations that you find objectionable. Helicase has no liability for such content.
1.12 Changes to Flykitt Programs; Amendments. We may change, suspend, or discontinue Flykitt Programs, or any part of them, at any time without notice.

Your continued use of Flykitt Programs after the effective date of the revised Agreement constitutes your acceptance of the terms.
1.13 Geographic Considerations and Restrictions. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ENSURING THAT THE FLYKITT PROGRAM AND ALL OF ITS CONSTIUTENT PARTS ARE LEGAL IN WHATEVER JURISDICTION YOU PLAN TO ENTER WITH A KIT, SCHEDULE, OR ANY OTHER PART OF A PROGRAM. FOR EXAMPLE, DIFFERENT JURISDICTIONS HAVE DIFFERENT LAWS AND REGULATIONS REGARDING DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS AND THEIR USE. IF WE PROVIDE ANY PART OF A PROGRAM FOR A GIVEN TRAVEL ITINERARY, IT DOES NOT GAURANTEE THAT FLYKITT PROGRAMS ARE LEGAL OR ALLOWED IN THE DESTINATION, LAYOVER, OR OTHER JURISDICTIONS. YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ASCERTAINING WHETHER FLYKITT PROGRAMS ARE ALLOWED WHERE YOU GO. We may also restrict the use of Flykitt Programs in some locations.

This policy describes Helicase’ practices regarding personally identifiable information and data (“personal information”). This policy applies to our websites, applications, email and text messages, information collected in person or over the phone, and social media accounts (the “Platforms”).
By visiting or using the Platforms or by using or interacting with Helicase Products or Services, to include Flykitt Programs, and any information, content, materials, software, or third party products and services made available to you by Helicase or our partners, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.
Our Products and Services are rapidly evolving, so we have included policies to cover areas where we may not be currently collecting information or ways in which we may not be using information, but we may start in the future. As such, you may see language, such as “we may” discussing some types of data and how we handle your data. Our goal is to be transparent with you and also to have policies in place that cover evolving activities, although this Privacy Notice may also change. Should we begin to collect data or use it in a manner described in this Privacy Notice, where we were not doing so previously, the clause covering that type of data or usage will be applicable when we begin doing so, and we will not necessarily modify this Privacy Notice or provide you a notification of the change.
The categories of Personal Information we collect
When you visit the Platforms, we may collect information from you. Some of it may be personal information. This information may include search history, IP address, screen resolution, browser used, operating system and settings, access times and referring URL. If you are using a mobile device, we may also collect data that identifies your device, your settings and your location.
If you buy a product or service via the Platforms, we may need additional information from you. This information can include your name, age, birthday, gender, email address, telephone number, credit card information, billing address, travel itinerary, lifestyle choices and habits, and other travel information that may be included in documents or other forms of information you provide to indicate your flight information or for other purposes. You may also be able to store personal information in your user account for future use.
If you choose to register, we will collect your email address, password and potentially other preference information you provide us. If you choose a third-party service, like Facebook Login, to register or login, you are permitting us to use and store information related to your linked accounts.
If you purchase products or services via the Platforms, we automatically create a digital or physical file so that we have your preferences and other information for future use.

How we collect your Personal Information
We collect your personal information directly from you. For example, when you provide lifestyle and habit data for the customization of Flykitt Programs.

We collect your personal information from third parties. This can include when you log in using a third party platform, such as Facebook. In addition, we may also integrate third party software (i.e. Google’s Invisible CAPTCHA) that collects information about users for security reasons.
Platform features may make use of your device attributes and settings that will allow us to determine your physical location. Such technologies may include IP address mapping, WiFi, GPS signals, cell tower positioning or other technologies. We may use this information to enhance and personalize your experience and provide you with offers and services that may be of interest to you. For example, we may suggest that it’s time to buy your next Flykitt Program.

By providing us personal information, you agree that your personal information may be transferred to and stored in the U.S. or in other countries. These countries may have different and/or less stringent privacy/data protection and data security rules than those of your own country. As a result, your personal information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in those countries according to laws in those countries.

We may request proof of your identity before providing this information. We may not be able to allow you to access certain personal information in some cases. For example, if your personal information is connected with personal information of other persons, or for legal reasons. In such cases we will provide you with an explanation why you cannot obtain this information. You can also withdraw your consent to the use of your personal information at any time by contacting us at the address below. You can demand deletion or rectification of your personal information, however, statutory provisions, especially those affecting Helicase’ accounting, processing of claims, and mandatory data retention, may prohibit deletion or anonymization.

How Helicase responds to “Do Not Track” signals
Some browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. These features are not yet uniform, so we are not currently set up to respond to those signals.
If you have any questions on our use of tracking tools, please email us at email@example.com.
