Privacy Policy

Information Collection and Use

This privacy policy applies to all information gathered by Yogadas, LLC (“we,” “us,” “our,” etc.), from users (“you,” “your,” etc.) of Yogadas.com, our website (the “site,” “website” or “Yogadas.com”). This Privacy Policy applies only to the site. It does not apply to any third party services linked to our site, to the extent applicable, or offline activities related to our site.

We urge you to read this Privacy Policy in its entirety so you will understand all of the practices and procedures we follow relating to your online privacy. In this Privacy Policy, we will inform you about the type of information that is collected about you on this site, how it is collected, what it will be used for, and to whom it will be given.

This policy will also tell you how to limit our use of your personal information. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into our Legal Terms and certain capitalized terms are defined in the Legal Terms.

We may need to update this Policy to keep pace with changes in the site, our business and the law; however, we always maintain our commitment to respect your privacy. We will post any revisions to this Policy, along with their effective date, in an easy to find area of our site, and we recommend that you periodically check back here to stay informed of any changes.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of any third-party services, applications, or software/hardware that we do not own or control (“Third-Party Materials”). We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of any Third-Party Materials you access via or in conjunction with the site.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY OF THE FOLLOWING PRIVACY POLICY TERMS, DO NOT USE THE SITE.

We will not sell, share, or rent “Personally Identifiable Information” to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this policy. Yogadas.com collects information from our users at several different points on our site. We recognize the importance of protecting the privacy of Personally Identifiable Information.

We consider the following to be “Personally Identifiable Information”: your email address, name, password, mailing address, phone number and credit card information. The foregoing list is not exhaustive of what may be deemed “Personally Identifiable Information.” This site does not collect Personally Identifiable Information about a user other than information that is voluntarily provided to us by the user; in this way, we can serve the user’s needs as well as our own legitimate business purposes (for example, we retain the Personally Identifiable Information that a user provides when he or she chooses to register with Yogadas.com).

We use Personally Identifiable Information to help us improve our site or for our marketing and promotional purposes. While we generally do not share this information with third parties (unless otherwise set forth herein), we do share “aggregate information” with other companies affiliated with us. By using the site, you expressly authorize the foregoing and release us from any and all liability resulting therefrom.

We make every reasonable effort to preserve your privacy; however we may disclose personal information when we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with laws, regulations, rules, etc., a law enforcement investigation, judicial proceeding, court order or legal process served on us. By using the site, you expressly authorize the foregoing and release us from any and all liability resulting therefrom.

Discussions/Blogs

Any Personally Identifiable Information that is voluntarily posted to a public area of the site in any way (for example, postings to our discussion board) might be collected and used by others. By using the site, you acknowledge the foregoing and release us from any and all liability resulting therefrom.

Registration

In order to use certain areas of this site, a user must first complete the registration form to create an account. During registration, a user is required to give his or her email address, which we may use (and which you expressly authorize by using the site) to contact the user about the services on our site for which they have expressed interest. The user may provide demographic information, such as a job, technical interests, etc., but is not required to do so to create an account.

Order

We request information from the user on our order form. Here, a user must provide contact information (like name, phone number and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer’s orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user. Credit card information may be stored on the user’s account if the user opts to allow us to retain such information for future orders. By using the site, you acknowledge the foregoing together with the provisions set forth in the Security Section herein. Because no site is 100% secure, the provision of the foregoing information is done so at the user’s own risk.

Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive tied to aggregate information about the user. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once (unless such cookies is otherwise turned off, removed, or deleted), thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site. Users can turn off cookies in their internet browser and some browsers allow users to turn off certain designated cookies. Cookies can also enable us to (i) track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site, (ii) streamline future purchasing options, and (iii) show advertisements on other websites that are likely to be of some interest to you. Some of our business partners also use cookies on our site for these same purposes, however, we have no access to or control over these cookies.

Log Files

Like most standard web site servers we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. The foregoing is referred to herein as “aggregate information.”

Sharing

We will share and you expressly authorize us to share aggregate information, anonymous demographic information, and/or webpage browsing patterns and history with our partners and advertisers who work with us to provide products and services or to help us market our products and services to you. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.  As specified in the Cookies section above, users can turn off all or certain cookies in their browser settings if they so desire.

We use an outside credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. This company does not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

From time-to-time we partner with outside service providers and other vendors that provide enhanced functionality on our website that may be of interest to you. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. For example, we may contact customers who have not checked out to follow up on abandoned shopping carts or to see if there was a problem with their use of the site. Like newsletters and promotional or special offers that we may send to you, you may opt out of receiving these abandoned cart reminders at any time by simply unsubscribing from this service. Simply click the unsubscribe link at the bottom of your abandoned cart reminder, and you will be able to manage and/or remove your account information.

Links

This site contains links to other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects Personally Identifiable Information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.

Service Announcements

On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance we might send users an email. Generally, users may not opt-out of these communications, though they can deactivate their account information. However, these communications are not promotional in nature.

Customer Service

We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested services and in regard to issues relating to their account we reply via email or phone in accordance with the users’ wishes when a user submits their information through our contact page.

Surveys & Contests

From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as ZIP code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.

Security

The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. By using the site, you acknowledge the foregoing and release us from any and all liability resulting therefrom.

If you have any questions about the security at our web site, you can send an e-mail.

Children’s Information

Protecting the safety of children when they use the Internet is very important to us. Our site should only be accessed by individuals of Minimum Age. “Minimum Age” may mean different ages in different countries, depending on where the individual accesses the site. For reference, “Minimum Age” shall mean (a) 14 years old for the United States, Canada, Germany, Spain, Australia, and South Korea; and (b) 13 years old for all other countries. However, if applicable law requires that you must be older than such ages in order for us to lawfully provide the site to you (including the collection, storage, and use of your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy), and then the Minimum Age would be such older age. The site is not designed nor intended for use by children or anyone else under the age of 13.

Notwithstanding the foregoing and in accordance with the Child Online Protection Act, we will only collect information of children under the age of 13, including name, email address, home address, and phone number with the consent of a parent or legal guardian. Such information will only be used and disclosed pursuant to the terms of this privacy policy as discussed above.

If you believe that we might have inadvertently collected information from a child under 13 without parental consent, please contact us.

Jurisdiction and Data Storage

Please be aware that content submitted to us may be transferred to a data center in the United States. If you post information to the site you are confirming your consent to such information being hosted and accessed in the United States. Privacy laws or regulations in your country may differ from those in the United States, where we operate from and whose laws govern this Privacy Policy. BY USING THE SITE, YOU HEREBY IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY SUBMIT, FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR PROPERTY, TO THE EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION OF ANY OHIO STATE COURT OR FEDERAL COURT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA SITTING IN CUYAHOGA COUNTY, OHIO, AND ANY APPELLATE COURT FROM ANY THEREOF, IN ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO YOUR USE OF THE SITE OR FOR RECOGNITION OR ENFORCEMENT OF ANY JUDGMENT, AND YOU HEREBY IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY AGREE THAT ALL CLAIMS IN RESPECT OF ANY SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING MAY BE HEARD AND DETERMINED IN ANY SUCH OHIO STATE OR, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN SUCH FEDERAL COURT.

Applicable Law & Legal Effect

This privacy policy is subject to all applicable state and federal law regarding privacy, information sharing, and telemarketing, including without limitation Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, 15 U.S.C. 6802; the California Financial Privacy Act, Ca. Fin. Code. §4050-4060; the Vermont Consumer Protection Act, 8 V.S.A. 10202; and the Amended Telemarketing Sales Rule, 16 CFR §310 et seq. California Civil Code Section § 1798.83 permits users of our site that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send contact us. We use good faith efforts to adhere to the European Union Safe Harbor principles as set forth by the United States Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information.

This privacy policy constitutes our privacy notice to you under such applicable law. Your use of the site is permitted only on condition of your agreement with this privacy policy. This privacy policy does not extend to any service or website other than our site, including any service you may access by clicking on our site’s links, or any other party’s use of your personal information other than us. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to modify, discontinue, or terminate any element of the site or to modify this Privacy Policy at any time, without notice to you. Any modifications will be effective as of the date of its posting to our site. Your continued use of our site thereafter constitutes your assent to such revised privacy policy.

The site is intended for adult audiences and minors with a legal guardian’s consent.
