We are the data controller for the purpose of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the “Act”).

A quick word about children
We do not and will not knowingly collect information from any unsupervised child under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, you should not use the Health Bloggers Community Website and Whole Influence Network unless you have the consent of, and are supervised by, a parent or guardian.
The personal information we collect about you
We may collect and process the following data about you when you access or browse the Whole Influence Network Websites:
Information you give us. You may give us information about you by filling in forms on theWhole Influence Network Websites or by corresponding with us by phone, e-mail or otherwise. This includes information you provide when you register to use theWhole Influence Network Websites, subscribe to our service, search for a product, place or event, place an order on the Whole Influence Network Websites, participate in discussion boards or other social media functions on the Whole Influence Network Websites, enter a competition, promotion or survey, and when you report a problem with the Whole Influence Network Websites.
The information you give us may include your name, address, e-mail address and phone number, financial and credit card information, personal description, photographs, gender, age, date and place of birth, fax number, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Linkedin details, favourite listings, books, films, sports, music and food preferences.
Information we collect about you. With regard to each of your visits to Whole Influence Network Websites we may automatically collect the following information:
– technical information, including the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet, your login information, browser type and version, time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform;
– information about your visit, including the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL) clickstream to, through and from the Whole Influence Network Websites (including date and time); products you viewed or searched for; page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs), and methods used to browse away from the page.
Information we receive from other sources. We may receive information about you if you use any other websites we operate or other services we provide. We may also receive information about you from third parties (including, for example, business partners, sub-contractors in technical, payment and delivery services, advertising networks, analytics providers, search information providers, credit reference agencies).
Our magazine has grown so big at this point that it is nearly impossible to go back through and list each and every program that we have an affiliate agreement with. Given this, you should assume that any links leading you to products or services are affiliate links that I will receive compensation from just to be safe. Having said that, there are millions of products and services on the web that relate to blogging and making money online. We only promote those products or services that we have investigated and truly feel deliver value to you. Examples would include the banners for BlueHost, Teachable and Typeform. The only consideration is in the form of affiliate commissions or compensation as an advisor for a few companies.
The Health Bloggers Community is also 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.
