OVERVIEW


At Golden Bridge Yoga ("Golden Bridge") your privacy is very important to us. We do not sell, rent, or share your personal information to or with third parties without your explicit consent. Please read this privacy policy to learn more about what types of information we gather about you, how we use it, and how to correct or change it.


SCOPE OF POLICY


This privacy policy applies to the www.goldenbridgeyoga.com website. It does not apply to other companies' or organizations' web sites to which we link. You should carefully review the privacy policies of those web sites in order to determine how your personal information is treated by such third parties.


INFORMATION GATHERED FROM ALL VISITORS


Aggregate Data

We gather certain generic information with respect to all visitors' use of our web site, such as the number of unique visitors, the frequency with which they visit, and the areas on the web site 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 website to make your experience easier and more enjoyable. We may also provide statistical "ratings" about how our customers collectively use our website 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 site. 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 use a technology nicknamed "cookies" on our website. Cookies are pieces of information or data sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies may be set upon your browser during site visits to save your site cus­tomization preferences and to save your passwords so you do not have to re-enter passwords upon each site visit. Cookies help you navigate our website, and help us customize our website to pro­vide personal service. We also use cookies to track user sessions and to gather site usage statistics.


IP Addresses

We collect and analyze traffic on our website 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.


Surveys

From time to time, we may conduct surveys or solicit your feedback. These surveys are used to gather information to improve our site 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.

USE OF INFORMATION GATHERED FROM USERS

If you elect to open a user account, 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). 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 the website to determine which classes you participate in so that we can make recommendations to your regarding specific teachers and classes. We also use such information to deliver to you information about Golden Bridge and our promotions.

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 Golden Bridge's 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 website and/or the Golden Bridge service; or (v) during emergencies, such as when we believe someone's physical safety is at risk.


YOUR CONTROL OVER YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

Every communication Golden Bridge sends you will contain a clearly worded "Opt-Out" or "Unsubscribe" link allowing you to withdraw your permission for future mailings.
