Portions of this website may use cookies to keep track of your visit, or to deliver content specific to your interests. A “cookie” is a small amount of data transferred to your computer and read by the Web server that placed it there. It works as a sort of identification card, recording your preferences and previously entered information. You can set your browser to block all cookies or to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to accept or reject it.

It is our intent to inform you before we collect personally identifiable information, and to tell you what we intend to do with it. You will have the option of not providing the information, in which case you may still be able to access other portions of this website, although you may not be able to access certain areas. In certain portions of this website, we also may enable you to “opt out” of certain uses of your information, or elect not to receive future communications or services.

We believe you should have the tools to control your information. If you made a donation to Give Back Yoga via Classy, you can manage or review your account information in your Supporter Dashboard in Classy. If you need assistance with a donation or purchase from Give Back Yoga which was completed prior to July 2019, email us at info@givebackyoga.org.

If the ownership or control of all or part of Give Back Yoga Foundation or a specific Service changes as a result of a merger, acquisition, or sale of assets, we may transfer your information to the new owner.

Give Back Yoga Foundation has technical, administrative, and physical safeguards in place to help protect against unauthorized access, use, or disclosure of customer information we collect or store.

When you use or interact with any of our Services, you consent to the data processing, sharing, transferring and uses of your information as outlined in this Privacy Policy. Regardless of the country where you reside, you authorize us to transfer, process, store, and use your information in countries other than your own in accordance with this Privacy Policy, and to provide you with Services. Some of these countries may not have the same data protection safeguards as the country where you reside.

This Privacy Policy applies only to the Give Back Yoga Foundation. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of companies and programs that Give Back Yoga does not own or control, or to people that Give Back Yoga does not employ or manage.

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time, so you should check it periodically. If we make changes that are material we will provide you with appropriate notice before such changes take effect.
