Privacy and Security Policy


IFA has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website. This site complies with the European Community on Data Protection. The text of this directive is available at The European Union Directives. This site also complies with US Privacy Laws. For more information on the Eupean Privacy policy, see General Information.

We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site.

This site contains links to other sites. International Fitness Association is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites.

Our site uses an order form for customers to request information, products, and services. We collect visitor's contact information (like their email address), unique identifiers (like their membership ID), and demographic information (like their address). Contact information from the order form is used to send membership materials to our certified instructors. Certified instructors may receive information about their membership status. Financial information and credit card numbers are not collected by IFA and are a function of our payment processor PayPal.

Medical information that is collected by Cyber Trainer™ on this site is used to determine fitness level and is not saved nor is distributed to any government, corporate or individual entity before destruction. Fitness level information is not saved or disseminated.


Is it safe to give out your credit card number over the Internet? Thanks to PayPal's secure server, our authorized payment processor, the answer is "yes." Their secure server software encrypts your credit card and other personal information, ensuring that Internet transactions stay private and protected.

In fact, ordering products via the Internet can be safer than by fax or mail. When you order with a secure server, only authorized recipients possessing the proper electronic key can open and decode your transmission. On the other hand, anyone can read a fax or paper mail.

How do you know if a website is secure? Unless you have changed your web browser configuration, you will get a message telling you that you are about to enter a secure environment.

If you use Internet Explorer, you will see a lock icon at the top of this screen to the right of the URL window on a secure page. If you use Firefox, you will see a grey lock icon to the left of the URL window.

Some older browsers do not support secure transactions. If your browser does not support secure transactions, do not use this service. Instead, use the Mail-in Order Form and mail in check or money order.
