ACCEPTANCE
Thank you for visiting the Today I Will web site (the “Today I Will Site”) that is owned and operated by The Cooper Institute®, a 501(c)(3) organization registered in the state of Texas (“CI”).  The Today I Will Site is offered to you conditioned on your acceptance, without modification, of the following terms, conditions, and notices (these “Terms of Use”).  Your use of the Today I Will Site (including your browsing of any of the web pages on the Today I Will Site) constitutes your agreement to be bound by these Terms of Use. CI reserves the right, in CI’s sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of these Terms of Use at any time.  You should read these Terms of Use periodically for changes.  If you use the Today I Will Site after CI posts changes to these Terms of Use, you accept the changed Terms of Use.

 

 

PRIVACY
By registering and logging in to the Today I Will Site users understand that certain information will be gathered and stored automatically about them and their visit (“Demographics”). Demographics will be stored in a de-identified manner—a code number instead of a name—so that stored information will not be used to identify an individual. Individual Demographics will not be shared with or linked to health care providers. Only de-identified demographics from the entire group of registrants may be linked to health care providers.

 

Further, CI does not disclose, give, sell, or transfer any personally identifiable information about visitors to the Today I Will Site; provided, however, that CI reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, rule, regulation, legal process, or governmental request (including any law enforcement request) or as necessary to service or process the Today I Will Site, all as determined in CI’s sole discretion.

 

Collection and analysis of Demographics will allow The Cooper Institute (CI) to understand which tools and resources on this website help individuals lose weight or maintain weight loss and allow CI to improve the materials. CI reserves the right to collect, analyze, and use the 
Demographics for publications that report findings from the entire group of registrants. No individuals will be identified in any reports.

 

Individuals who register on this website will be periodically asked to complete a brief online questionnaire about their current weight, current weight maintenance strategies, and other health-related behaviors. Responding to these questionnaires or other requests for feedback from The Cooper Institute is completely voluntary.
