We only collect personal information for purposes directly associated with our business activities. For example, we only collect personal information from individuals when they volunteer their information in the following types of situations: when you enroll for an event or workshop; participate in a promotion; sponsor an event or workshop; send us a comment about our business; or to respond to a question or concern. Generally, any personal information that we collect is directly supplied by you. In such cases, we will take reasonable care to try to record your data correctly, but will typically not make any effort to verify its accuracy or update it. For example, if you provide us with a phone number or address, we will assume it is correct and current unless otherwise advised by you in which case we will update our records with any revised information you supply to us.
We only collect and use your personal information with your knowledge and consent, except in limited and specific circumstances, and as permitted by law. For example, we reserve the right to collect, use or disclose any information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal responsibility; to protect our legitimate business interests; to fulfill your requests; or to cooperate in any law enforcement investigation or an investigation respecting a matter of public safety.
Except in such specific circumstances, you may withdraw your consent to our use of your personal information at any time.
We will only collect personal information necessary to meet an identified purpose. We will collect this information lawfully and fairly. For example, if you enroll into an event or workshop, we need your name and other contact information so that we may contact you, if we consider it necessary or desirable, for any purpose including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, for processing your enrollment or enquiry or in order for us to provide services that you request or to inform you of product or service offerings of ours or other organizations in which we believe you may be interested. We also may use your personal information to collect any monies you owe to us.
We are the sole owner of the information collected on the Website. We will not disclose it without your knowledge other than to our agents and/or other entities acting on our behalf.
Occasionally, with your permission, we will send marketing information to you, such as a regular newsletter describing future events, workshops and promotions. By checking the applicable “box” on the Website, you consent to us collecting and retaining your personal information and to our sending you relevant communications. You can revoke that consent at any time by written request. If you would like to have your personal information removed from our database, you must mention that specifically and in writing when you send us the written request just referred to. Note that on occasion, it may be necessary for us to contact you even after we receive your written consent to revoke such communication, to send you important announcements about an event or workshop you are attending, for example, if there is a change in venue of the event or workshop you are attending.
We may engage other entities to perform a variety of functions, such as fulfilling orders, assisting with promotions, or providing technical services for the Website and information technology systems. These entities may have access to your personal information, if needed, to perform such functions. However, these entities may only use such personal information for the purpose of performing that function for which the information was provided, and may not use it for any other purpose.
We recognize that, under certain laws, you may have a right to access your personal information. In that regard, an access request must be made in writing and must be mailed to the attention of our Privacy Manager, as follows:
Private and Confidential
Note that, depending on the nature of the request, and where permissible, we may charge an administration fee.
If you would like to not receive further communications from us, you may contact us at any time by email (see address above), and in the “subject line” type “Unsubscribe.”
