Cookies

When you use our Site, we gather web traffic information via "cookies". Cookies are small pieces of digital information stored by your browser on your computer and track initial and returning visits, browsing patterns on our Site, and products ordered and viewed. Our cookies do not contain personally identifiable information, but they enable us to identify you as a repeat visitor and help us personalize your nutrisystem.com experience. Although most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, you may reset your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to reject cookies generally. Most browsers offer instructions on how to do so in the "Help" section of the toolbar. For more information on how to control browser cookies, click here.

Flash Cookies

Certain features of our Site may use local stored objects (or Flash cookies) to collect and store information about your preferences and navigation to, from and on our Site. Flash cookies are not managed by the same browser settings as are used for browser cookies, and they are not placed on your computer. You may need to take additional action to manage flash cookies, which you can learn more about here.

Web Beacons, Pixel Tags, and 3rd Party Cookies

Nutrisystem, or third parties engaged by us, may use web beacons on some pages of this Site. A web beacon (also known as a pixel tag or clear GIF) is a graphic image which is used to better understand the browsing patterns of visitors to the page.

When the HTML code for the web beacon points to a website to retrieve the pixel image, information can be passed along such as the IP address of the computer that requested the image, the time the web beacon was viewed and for how long, the type of browser that was used, and previously set cookie values. Web beacons DO NOT pass or read personally identifiable information about you.

Web beacons work in conjunction with cookies set by trusted third parties that are used to assess the effectiveness of promotional campaigns or to optimize advertising once a user leaves a website. View your browser's help section to determine how to configure your browser to reject or manage first-party (i.e., Nutrisystem) and/or third-party cookies. Nutrisystem shares aggregated information collected through web beacons to vendors for which the beacon was set to determine the success of marketing campaigns but does not disclose personally identifying information to these vendors.

Third-party ad servers may track anonymous website usage through web beacons on our Site and other websites. They do this by setting a cookie (or reading a cookie previously placed by them) on users' computers to track the activities of users who view a web page that contains web beacons. Third-party ad servers may use information about your visits to this Site and other websites to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you. Periodically, upon our request, third-party ad servers may report the anonymous data that they collect on our behalf back to us for our internal use and analysis and our treatment of this anonymous data is governed by the terms of this Privacy Policy. To learn more about targeted advertising, these providers, or how you may opt out, please visit the Digital Advertising Alliance's consumer choice page at http://www.aboutads.info/choices. Technologies other than http cookies may be used by third-parties in a similar way, to recognize the email recipients' computer or device and to keep track of which user identities match to which devices or browsers, and those technologies may not respond to browser settings that block conventional cookies. You may opt out of many of these types of technologies by visiting the National Advertising Initiative's opt out page at http://www.networkadvertising.org.

Email Tools: You can also change your email settings to block the automatic download of images in email messages, as such images may contain technologies that help us understand how you interact with the message.

How we respond to "DO NOT TRACK" signals

We do not respond to web browser "do not track" signals or other mechanisms that provide you the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personal information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services.

We may use cookies and web beacons for insight with respect to the usage of the Site, and so that we could continually improve our customer's experience. At times, we use third parties to analyze usage of our website. However, we do not disclose your personally identifiable information to such third parties.
