Shamani Yoga LLC Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. At Shamani Yoga, LLC (“Shamani Yoga”) we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

We don’t ask you to provide personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)

We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, provide you with the services you’ve asked for , or protect our rights.  In providing you with services, we work with certain other providers, who may collect and process your data, as described below.  Those service providers collect and process your data pursuant to their own privacy policies.

We don’t store personal information unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Shamani Yoga collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Shamani Yoga’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Shamani Yoga’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Shamani Yoga may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Shamani Yoga also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Shamani Yoga only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Shamani Yoga’s websites choose to interact with Shamani Yoga in ways that require Shamani Yoga to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Shamani Yoga gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. For those who wish to receive Shamani Yoga updates via email, we collect their emails. Also, Shamani Yoga works with payment providers and other service providers, for example, for scheduling and taking payment of any online class, and those providers may also gather your information.   In each case, Shamani Yoga collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Shamani Yoga. Shamani Yoga does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities and it might prevent us from provide you the service that you would like.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Shamani Yoga discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, service providers and affiliated organizations, if any,  that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Shamani Yoga’s behalf or to provide services available at Shamani Yoga’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Shamani Yoga’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Shamani Yoga will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Shamani Yoga discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Shamani Yoga believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Shamani Yoga, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Shamani Yoga website and have supplied your email address, Shamani Yoga may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Shamani Yoga and our products and services. We primarily use our various  blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Shamani Yoga takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
