SCOPE OF POLICY
INFORMATION GATHERED FROM ALL VISITORS
We gather certain generic information with respect to all visitors’ use of our web sites, such as the number of unique visitors, the frequency with which they visit, and the areas on the web sites that they favor. We only use this type of data in aggregate, that is we look at the data on a collective basis, in summary form, rather than on an individual basis. This data helps us to provide services and features that most likely meet your needs, and to customize our web sites to make your experience easier and more enjoyable. We may also provide statistical “ratings” about how our customers collectively use our web sites to advertisers, sponsors, and other companies with which we do business. These statistical ratings do not contain any personally identifiable information about you or any of our users.
We may automatically track certain information about you based upon your behavior on our sites. We use this information to do internal research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand, protect and serve our users. This information is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis.
We collect and analyze traffic on our web sites by keeping track of the IP addresses of our visitors. IP addresses are unique numeric identifiers that are assigned to each computer browser accessing the Internet. An IP address, by itself, cannot identify you personally. However, when combined with other information provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), your IP address can be used to identify the computer originating a message.
From time to time, we may conduct surveys or solicit your feedback. These surveys are used to gather information to improve our sites and provide a more meaningful experience for our users. We may also use the information to alert you to offers and products in which you have expressed an interest.
Arya Yoga reserves the right to communicate with you from time to time about important administrative, policy, legal, credit card, and billing matters, which will affect your use of our web site.
USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION GATHERED FROM USERS
If you elect to open a user account on our web site, you will be required to provide us with certain personal information, including your name, e-mail address, phone number, credit card, debit card or account number, expiration date, and billing address (this required information is subject to change from time to time).
If you elect to open a member account on our web site, you will be required to provide us with certain personal information, including your name, e-mail address, address, phone number and date of birth (this required information is subject to change from time to time).
If you elect to post a comment or leave a reply on the web site, you will be required to provide us with certain personal information, including your name and e-mail address (this required information is subject to change from time to time).
There may also be opportunities for you to provide us with additional information regarding your preferences and interests, and we may also use this information to make recommendations to you regarding specific teachers and classes. This information, however, is not required and is completely optional on your part.
In general, we will only use the information you provide to us for the purpose for which such information was provided, such as communications, billing and processing your account. We may also track your use of our web site to determine which classes you participate in so that we can make recommendations to you regarding specific teachers and classes. We also use such information to deliver to you information about Arya Yoga and our promotions. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings from us by following the instructions set forth below. We also use information for trend analysis, pattern detection, and site administration. Your personal information may also be disclosed to a third party in the event of any merger, sale, joint venture, reorganization assignment, transfer or disposition of all or any portion of our business, assets or stock.
Your information may be disclosed by you, on blogs, message boards and other services to which you are able to post information and materials. You should be aware that any information you disclose through these services will become public information, and may be available to the general public.
Your information provided to us on our web site may also be disclosed to your friends associated with your social media accounts, other users, and to your social media account provider, in connection with your social sharing activities, such as if you connect your social media accounts to your use of our web site. You authorize us to share your information with your social media account provider by connecting your use of our web site to your social media accounts.
Notwithstanding the above policies, we reserve the right to disclose your personal information to appropriate third parties if we are required to do so by law: (i) to comply with legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, or court order; (ii) to protect Arya Yoga’ rights and property; (iii) to investigate reports of users sending material using a false e-mail address or users sending harassing, threatening, or abusive messages; (iv) to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our web sites and/or the Arya Yoga service; or (v) during emergencies, such as when we believe someone’s physical safety is at risk.
