We All Need Privacy. Here’s My Commitment To Yours

The Skinny on My Privacy Policy

For those who want the short and relevant answer, I will always, ALWAYS, respect your privacy, your email address, and the information you give me. I’m not going to sell it, trade it, or abuse any information you submit to me. But I’m sure you’ve got some questions. Here’s my answers to what may be running through your mind.

1. Who’s going to get my information?

Your information’s safe with me. So don’t worry about getting spam emails about Viagra or debt consolidation. When you sign up you’ll only get relevant information about Slim4Life, yoga, weight loss and programs or products that pertain to yoga, weight loss and personal growth. These emails will always be sent from me and only me. I’ll never give out your email address or any of the information you submit on this site to anyone else.

2. What if I email you?

Your emails are confidential, I won’t share your email, data, or email address. Cool? It’s just between you and me.

3. Do you use cookies?

Yup, but my cookies don’t contain any personal information. I use them to help you make using my website easier, such as:

  • to remember your country and language preferences
  • to deliver information that match your interests
  • to help me understand my audience and traffic patterns
  • to let you automatically log into programs and parts of my site that require membership
  • to manage and present site info displayed on my website that will be specific to you

I also use web Beacons to collect non-personal data on how you use my site, such as how long did you visit my page, what web browser you’re using, what’s your operating system, and who’s your Internet service provider. This data is collected from thousands of site visits and analyzed as a whole. This helps me build a better website to match your needs.

But if any of this feels uncomfortable to you, head here to disable cookies and beacons on your computer »

4. What if I post in one of your blog posts?

Occasionally I hold public discussions through forums within my site. This may be on blog posts I put up or in my membership area. Please be aware that this is public space. Would you shout out your credit card information in public? Probably not. Use this same discretion when when commenting on blog posts.

5. How tech savvy are you when it comes to data security?

I have a ton (and wide variety, may I mention) of administrative, managerial, and technical security measures put in place to protect your personal information. I’ve never had a breach of security and always strive for excellence in maintaining your privacy.

Your privacy is very important to me.

I want to make your experience on the Internet as enjoyable and rewarding as possible, and I want you to use the Internet’s vast array of information, tools, and opportunities with complete confidence.

I have created this Privacy Policy to demonstrate my firm commitment to privacy and security. This Privacy Policy describes how my company collects information from all end users of my Internet services (the “Services”), including those who access some of my Services but do not have accounts (“Visitors”) and those who may purchase Products and/or pay a monthly service fee to subscribe to the Service (“Members”). This Policy also explains what I do with the information I collect, and the choices Visitors and Members have concerning the collection and use of such information. I request that you read this Privacy Policy carefully.


Personal information my company collects and how it is used.

Introduction

Your information will never be licensed or sold to any third party. However, I may make limited disclosure of personal information under the specific circumstances described in the “Disclosure” section below.

Affiliate Links

Occasionally you may have clicked on one of SlimYogi’s affiliate links and signed up or bought something via that link. In this case, the person or organization in charge of the affiliate link will have the information that you have submitted. This may be your email address, name, address, or whatever else they asked you. If you have signed up or bought something from SlimYogi via an affiliate link, please check the privacy policy on their site.

Online shopping

If you order services or products directly from my Company I will use the personal information you provide only to process that order. I do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.

If you complete an order for some other company(ies) that may be linked to my Site, such as an online gift order sent directly to a recipient, you may be asked to provide information about the recipient, such as the recipient’s name, address, and phone number. My company has no control over the third parties’ use of any personal information you provide when placing such an order. Please exercise care when doing so. I recommend that you familiarize yourself with the Privacy and Terms of use policies of any other company(ies) whose websites you may access from my site.


Responses to email inquiries

When Visitors or Members send email inquiries to my company, the return email address is used to answer the email inquiry I receive. My company does not use the return email address for any other purpose and does not share the return email address with any third party.

My company’s commitment to data security

I implement a variety of administrative, managerial, and technical security measures to help protect your personal information.
