PRIVACY POLICY

updated 20 August 2019

 

We are committed to protecting your privacy. Anicca Yoga is committed to protecting any information that we collect from you. Please read the following Privacy Statement to understand how your personal information is treated. We will collect the minimum amount of information about you that we need to provide you with a satisfactory service. Your use of our website (aniccayoga.co) gives us the right to collect that information. 

 

Information Collected
We may collect any or all of the personally identifiable information that you give us depending on the type of transaction you enter into, including your name, address, telephone number, fax number, and email address, together with data about your use of the website. Other information that may be needed from time to time to process a request may also be collected as indicated on the website. In some cases, we may collect non-personal information. Examples of this type of information include the type of Internet browser you are using and the domain name of the web site from which you linked to our website. We may use your information on an aggregated basis to do such things as operate and enhance our website and deliver advertising. 


Use of Information Collected 

We use the information collected on our website for a variety of purposes including improving the website and contacting users. We may use your information to communicate with you on products, services and benefits, to contact you for market research or to provide you with information we think may be of particular interest. In addition, if you make a purchase on our website, we may send you order and shipping confirmation emails. We will always give you the opportunity to opt out of receiving any of such materials.
 

Cookies 

Your Internet browser has the functionality for storing small files ("cookies") that hold information which allows a website to recognize your account. Our website takes advantage of this functionality to enhance your experience. You have the ability to prevent your computer from accepting cookies but, if you do, certain functionality on the website may be impaired.
 

Disclosing Information
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or to protect our rights, protect your safety, the safety of others or investigate fraud. However, non-personally identifiable information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. We may disclose your personally identifiable information if we have your consent to do so.

Emails and Email Marketing 

If you have opted to receive emails and/or email marketing you may cancel participation in email correspondence by following the instructions on each newsletter or sending a reply email with the words “discontinue correspondence” in the first line of the email. We will honor all requests for list removal sent to us as described in “Contacting Us” below. 

 

Changes to this Policy 

Any changes to our Privacy Policy will be displayed on our website and will supersede this version of our Policy. We will take reasonable steps to draw your attention to any changes in our Policy. However, we suggest that you read this document each time you use the website to ensure that it still meets with your approval. 

Does this Privacy Policy apply to external links found on this Web site? 

 

This Privacy Policy applies only to our website and does not address the practices of third parties who may collect your personal information. You may visit other websites, through links on our website, which may collect, use and share your personal information in accordance with their own privacy policies. The information practices of those linked websites are not covered by this Privacy Policy, and we encourage you to be cautious before you disclose your personally identifiable information to others. 

 

Contacting Us 

If you have any questions about our Privacy Policy, or if you want to know what information we have collected about you, please email us at rebecca@aniccayoga.co. You can also correct any factual errors in such information or require us to remove your personal information from any list that we control. 

Anicca Yoga is fully compliant with EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and is committed to EU data protection requirements (applicable to us as a data processor). We recognise the need for appropriate protection and management of any personally identifiable information (personal information) you share with us. Meaning, we don’t collect and process users’ personal information beyond what is legally required for the functioning of our products and services.

Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a home or other physical address, an email address or other contact information; whether at work or at home. In general, you can visit our web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself.

We strive to comply with all applicable laws around the globe that are designed to protect your privacy. Although legal requirements may vary from country to country, we intend to adhere to the principles set forth in this online privacy policy even if, in connection with the above, we transfer your personal information from your country to countries that may not require an ‘adequate’ level of protection for your personal information. In other words, our goal is to provide protection for your personal Information no matter where that personal information is collected, transferred or retained.

 

DATA SECURITY

We provide secure hosting from one of the largest providers in the UK, with high levels of both digital and physical security.

All servers are monitored 24/7, alerting key personnel within the company should a data breach occur. This allows us to easily notify users should anything happen to the server.

We ensure that the server, and its packages, are fully up to date at all times, to provide the best possible security and performance to our clients.  

DATA SUBJECT RIGHTS

GDPR compliance requires data subjects be granted certain rights. What follows is not an exhaustive list, but those rights that are relevant to the collection, processing, and storage of personal data on aniccayoga.co and Anicca Yoga email accounts.

RIGHT TO ACCESS

Data subjects reserve the right to request and obtain confirmation that data is or is not being collected on them and if so, exactly what data is being collected, how, where, and for what purposes. This data can be manually requested via our website and provided in an electronic format free of charge.

RIGHT TO BE FORGOTTEN

Should data subjects at anytime wish to withdraw their consent and no longer allow Anicca Yoga to store their personal data, this request can be manually made via our website. Please be sure to include the full name (including any prefixes) and email address of whom the data is in reference too, so that all data relating to the data subject in question can be accurately removed.

DATA PORTABILITY

Similar to the Right to Access, Data Portability requires that data subjects are able to request, obtain, and/or transfer possession of collected data at any time. As mentioned above, this data can be manually requested via our website, and provided in an electronic format free of charge. Should the data subject wish to transfer the possession of the data stored by Anicca Yoga, please be sure to also include the full name (including any prefixes) and the relevant contact information relating to the individual or organisation whom you wish the data to be transferred to.

BREACH NOTIFICATION

Should Anicca Yoga encounter a breach/unauthorised access of personal data that is likely to “result in a risk for the rights and freedoms of individuals”, Anicca Yoga will ensure that a notification is made within 72 hours of becoming aware of the breach.

 

COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES

Some of our web pages utilise “cookies” and other tracking technologies. Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to ‘remember’ you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a ‘session cookie’) or for multiple repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as ‘first party cookies’), or by other websites who serve up content on that site (‘third party cookies’).

Tracking technologies may record information such as Internet domain and host names; Internet protocol (IP) addresses; browser software and operating system types; clickstream patterns; and dates and times that our site is accessed. Our use of cookies and other tracking technologies allows us to improve our web site and your web experience. We may also analyse information that does not contain personal information for trends and statistics.

To protect your privacy, we have adopted the following principles:

NOTICE

Where Anicca Yoga collects personal information on the web, we intend to post a purpose statement that explains why personal information will be collected and whether we plan to share such personal information outside of Anicca Yoga or those working on our behalf. Anicca Yoga does not intend to transfer personal information without your consent to third parties who are not bound to act on our behalf, unless such a transfer is legally required.

CHOICE

You may choose whether or not to provide personal information to Anicca Yoga. The notice we intend to provide where we collect personal information on the web should help you to make this choice.

If you choose to have a relationship with Anicca Yoga, such as a contractual or other business relationship or partnership, we will naturally continue to contact you in connection with that business relationship.

SECURITY

Wherever your personal information may be held within Anicca Yoga or on its behalf, we intend to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the personal information that you share with us from unauthorised access or disclosure.

COMMITMENT

We are committed to privacy and through our membership in the Online Privacy Alliance, are actively involved in and support current industry initiatives to preserve individual privacy rights on the Internet. Protecting your privacy online is an evolving area, and our websites are constantly evolving to meet these demands.

If you have any comments or questions regarding our Online Privacy Policy, please contact us via our website. While we cannot guarantee privacy perfection, we will address any issue to the best of our abilities as soon as possible.

YOUR CONSENT

By using this website, you consent to the terms of our Online Privacy Policy and to Anicca Yoga processing personal information for the purposes given above, as well as those explained where we collect personal information on the web.

We are committed to protecting your right to privacy. Anicca Yoga respects your privacy and we will use our best efforts to ensure that the information you provide remains private. Information provided will only be stored on computers based in the UK.

For control of our business, our website logs IP addresses, which is the automatic number assigned to your computer when you surf the web. The IP address allows us to anonymously track visitors’ usage on our website. Your IP address is not connected to any personally identifiable or online contact information, like a name and address, so you remain anonymous at all times.
