Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand our policy and the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
This policy covers all associated SY sites, including www.santushtiyoga.com and various 3rd party sites where Santushti Yoga content is hosted. eg. Facebook, Youtube, Pinterest, Linked-in, LeadPages, SendPepper, Infusionsoft, Constant Contact, Wufoo Forms, GoToWebinar etc
INFORMATION SY GATHERS AND TRACKS:
SY gathers two types of information about its users:
Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive our electronic newsletters, video marketing, to participate in our free training, our paid training, in our message boards and forums, to email a friend, and from participation in polls and surveys.
Information SY gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers’ needs and to help us to better understand the demographics of our audience. Because SY derives its revenue mainly from paid training programs , providing such aggregated demographic data is essential to keeping our service relevant to users. Under no circumstances does SY divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
SY Gathers User Information In The Following Processes:
OPTIONAL VOLUNTARY INFORMATION:
We offer the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users:
1. Electronic newsletters policy
We will offer free electronic newsletters to users. SY gathers the email addresses and, in some cases, phone numbers of users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every newsletter that points users to the subscription management page. Users can also subscribe to the newsletters at the time of registration.
2. Message boards/forums policy
Users of the site’s Message Boards and Forums (such as Facebook, Youtube, Pinterest, Linked-in etc) must register separately for these services (all are free of charge) in order to post messages, although they needn’t register to visit the site. During registration for some of these, the user is required to supply a username,password, and email address as required under the privacy policies of those sites.
3. E-mail this to a friend policy
Our site users can choose to electronically forward a link, page, or documents to someone else if desired. The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose.
We may offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their opinions with other users and see what our audience thinks about important issues. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. SY may use a system to “tag” users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users.
SY may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
Consistent with the USA Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.
SY tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. SY does break down overall usage statistics according to a user’s domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user’s browser). SY sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms that users enter in our Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you
USE OF INFORMATION
SY uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our network of sites, whether to provide interactive or personalised elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users. As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in polls, surveys, message boards, and forums. We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on the newsletter), and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. SY never shares newsletter mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners. When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you. We track search terms entered in Search function as one of many measures of what interests our users. SY creates aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns. We will not disclose any information about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
SHARING OF THE INFORMATION

We will not share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
SY operates secure data networks protected by industry standard password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorised individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.
We give users options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include: • Opting not to register to receive our electronic newsletters. • Opting not to participate in certain interactive areas, which completely alleviates the need to gather any personally identifiable information from our users.
