We also collect information you provide when requesting a service, and this information may, among other things, include personal information or reveal details about your preferences.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

We do not sell, share or disclose your contact information or personal information except to provide the services you request, when you give us permission, and in the following cases:

Providing Services

Personal and other information is anonymously shared with our selected suppliers, service providers and partner sites in connection with providing services to you. For example, we may provide such information to third parties in connection with operating and maintaining the website, fulfilling your requests for services, processing credit card payments (if applicable), performing business and sales analysis, and offering contests or conducting surveys. We do not provide contact details to other companies for their marketing or mailing list. We may disclose personal information in response to a charge-back inquiry from our merchant bank about your payment for goods and/or services.

Content Sharing

Content (meaning any materials, including, without limitation, text, pictures, graphics, sound files and other files and the selection and arrangement thereof, the “Content”) that you make available publicly on the website is generally displayed to other visitors to the website. Content that you make available publicly may be collected and used by others, and we cannot control what other users do with this Content.

Complying With The Law

We disclose personal and other information if we have a good-faith belief that the disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with the law, legal process or an enforceable government request; to enforce applicable terms of use for our services; to detect, prevent or otherwise address illegal activity, fraud, or security issues; or to protect the property or safety of our users, Health Conscious Yoga, or the public as required or permitted by law.

We may also disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (1) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Health Conscious Yoga or its affiliates, (2) protect and defend the rights or property of Health Conscious Yoga or the users of the website, or (3) act under exigent circumstances to protect the safety of the public or users of the website.

Your Choices

As a user of the website you have the following options:

Account Review

If you have an account with us, you can review and update your account information (such as but not limited to your name, contact information, and payment information) online by making the appropriate selections or changes. We make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information and the ability to correct the information if it is inaccurate. We require users to reliably identify themselves and the information they wish to access or correct before processing these requests, and we may decline to process requests that we believe in good faith are unreasonable or unduly burdensome (such as requests that are repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be impractical to satisfy).

Service Review

You can add, edit, or remove services that you have subscribed to by logging into the website.

Deactivate Account

You can deactivate your account with us at any time by making the appropriate selections.

Further, we generally do not remove information that you have made publicly available, and information that has already been provided to third parties as described in this Privacy Policy may be retained by those third parties and will be subject to their policies, and not this Privacy Policy.

Opt Out

If we propose to use personal information for any purposes other than those described in this Privacy Policy, we will offer you an effective way to opt out of the use of personal information for those other purposes. We do reserve the right to contact you on matters that we believe in good faith to be urgent or of particular importance even if you opt out from other communications, but these would not include marketing communications.

Information Security

We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to and unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of personal information. These measures include administrative and physical security measures intended to guard against unauthorized access to personal data. No method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is one hundred percent secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Protection of Visitor Information

Our website is scanned on a regular basis for security holes and known vulnerabilities in order to make your visit to our site as safe as possible.

We use regular Malware Scanning.

Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.

Third party links, co-brand relationships and public forums

In an attempt to provide increased value to our visitors, Health Conscious Yoga may choose various third party websites to link to, link from, and frame within, the website. Health Conscious Yoga also may participate in co-branding and other relationships to offer e-commerce and other services and features to its users. However, even if the third party is affiliated with Health Conscious Yoga, we have no control over these linked sites, each of who have separate privacy and data collection practices independent of Health Conscious Yoga. Health Conscious Yoga has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions. Health Conscious Yoga is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any such websites. Please make sure you are comfortable with the privacy practices of every site you visit before providing the site with your personal information. These linked sites are only for your convenience and you therefore access them at your own risk.

Blog Area

We provide a blog area available to you on the website. Please remember that we cannot control the information that is shared by blog members. Anything you voluntarily provide in the blog area of the website will be available to other blog members on the site. Thus, please note that you should always exercise caution when deciding to publicly disclose any of your personal information in these and similar areas.


When we receive formal written complaints to Health Conscious Yoga, it is our policy to contact the complaining user regarding his or her concerns. We will cooperate with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that cannot be resolved between Health Conscious Yoga and an individual.

Users Under 18

Health Conscious Yoga’s content is not directed at users under eighteen (18) years of age. If you provide information about yourself as a user of Health Conscious Yoga, you are representing that you are at least eighteen (18) years of age. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under eighteen (18) years of age, but if we do become aware of having collected personally identifiable information from a user who is younger than eighteen (18) years of age, we will remove such information from our files.

Health Conscious Yoga Terms and Conditions Agreement

A complete statement of our Terms and Conditions Agreement can be found here. Health Conscious Yoga’s Terms and Conditions Agreement are expressly incorporated into this Policy by this reference.

Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under 13.


Google’s advertising requirements can be summed up by Google’s Advertising Principles. They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users.

We have not enabled Google AdSense on our site but we may do so in the future.

California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA)

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. – See more at:

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page, or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website.

Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’, and can be easily be found on the page specified above.

Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes:

  • On our Privacy Policy Page

Users are able to change their personal information:

  • By logging in to their account
