  • Part of Binfy's website enables you to track data, such as weight and symptoms. In order for many of Binfy's available features to work, its internal algorithms programmatically access your tracking data for calculation purposes. For example, to produce a chart, or calculate statistics, or determine when to send a reminder that you have setup, your tracking history must be programmatically accessed and/or evaluated.
  • Custom Pages - We may use information you have provided to customize your visit to Binfy, and to show you information or advertisements we think you might be interested in. When we serve ads on our site, Binfy does not provide (sell or share) Personal Information about you to our advertisers.
