Personal information
Personal information means any information that can be used to identify you such as your name, telephone number, email address and/or mailing address. You are able to browse the Weight Escape website without providing any personal information.

How your information is used
When you contact Weight Escape through this website or by other communication channels (such as telephone, email or social media), you do so voluntarily and provide any such details requested at your own risk.

While there is a risk that countries to which information is transferred will not be subject to an information protection regime as rigorous as that of the UK, we will always take steps to ensure that your information is treated securely and adequately protected in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, and we use strict procedures and security features to try and prevent unauthorised access, we cannot guarantee the security of this information.
