Virtual Fitness and its suppliers use cookies and other technologies (such as web beacons), as well as device identifiers that can be reset for a variety of reasons. We want you to know that we use these technologies and how they are used and in this section we explain how they work and what options you have available regarding their use.


Cookies and Similar Technologies, Web Beacons and Resettable Device Identifiers


Cookies are small packets of data that are generally stored on your device when you browse and use websites and online services. Virtual Fitness also uses other technologies, such as browser storage and plugins (for example, HTML5, IndexedDB, and WebSQL). Like cookies, these technologies can store small amounts of data on your device. Web beacons (also called clear gifs or pixel tags) are often used together with cookies. In many cases, disabling cookies prevents the correct functioning of the web beacons associated with disabled cookies.

If you use the Virtual Fitness app on a mobile device, tablet or multimedia streaming device, we may collect a device identifier that can be reset by it. Resettable device identifiers (also known as advertising identifiers) are similar to cookies and are found in many mobile devices and tablets (for example, the IDFTA (“Identifier for Advertisers”) on Apple’s iOS devices and the “Google Advertising ID ”On Android devices) and on some media streaming devices. Like cookies, resettable device identifiers are used to improve the relevance of online advertising and for analytical and optimization purposes.


Why does Virtual Fitness use these technologies?


Virtual Fitness uses these technologies for various reasons, for example to facilitate access to services by remembering the user on his return; to provide, analyze, understand and improve the use of the services; to apply the conditions and prevent fraud; to improve site performance, monitor visitor traffic and actions on our site; as well as to provide and customize marketing and advertising and analyze interactions with our emails, marketing information and online advertising on third-party sites.

To help you better understand how Virtual Fitness uses resettable cookies and device identifiers, see the following information:


  • Essential cookies : these cookies are essential for our site and for the provision of online services. For example, we and our service providers can use these cookies to verify the identity of our members when they use our sites and applications so that we can provide them with our services. Cookies also help us apply our Terms of Use, prevent fraud and guarantee the security of our Service.


  • Functional and performance cookies: questi cookie non sono indispensabili, ma ci aiutano a personalizzare e migliorare la tua esperienza online con Virtual Fitness. Ad esempio ci aiutano a ricordare le tue preferenze e a evitare che tu debba inserire nuovamente le informazioni che ci hai già fornito (ad esempio durante la fase di registrazione). Utilizziamo i cookie anche per raccogliere informazioni (quali pagine più amate, tassi di conversione, statistiche sulle sessioni di allenamento, accessi tramite banner e altre informazioni) sull’utilizzo del servizio Virtual Fitness da parte dei nostri visitatori così da poter migliorare e personalizzare il nostro sito e il nostro servizio e condurre delle ricerche di mercato. L’eliminazione di questi tipi di cookie può determinare una limitazione della funzionalità del nostro servizio.


  • Advertising cookies and resettable device identifiers: these cookies and resettable device identifiers use information relating to your use of our site and other sites or apps, as well as your response to advertising or email, to send you advertising messages of greater interest to you and for analytical and optimization purposes. This type of advertising is called “interest-based advertising”. Many of these advertising cookies associated with our service belong to our service providers.


In relation to the use of these technologies by Virtual Fitness, some of the websites and apps in which we place advertisements, as well as the advertising technology companies that we use to purchase, deliver, optimize and / or measure our advertisements (collectively ” Advertising Partners “) may receive limited information from us in the context of identifying, measuring and optimizing our campaigns (e.g. information on the steps completed in the registration process, on visits to the site or on opening / installing the app ).

This type of information is commonly used to evaluate the effectiveness of advertising campaigns and optimize them, allowing Advertising Partners to see when someone who has seen an advertisement has subsequently subscribed to the service. Another common use is to make sure not to show ads that invite individuals who are already subscribers to register for Virtual Fitness.


Virtual Fitness uses technical and contractual measures designed to prevent advertising partners from accessing information relating to specific choices made by users, visited URLs or workouts displayed on our service. Virtual Fitness does not share information related to the training sessions you have performed on our service.
