1. WHAT INFORMATION DOES POWERYOGA.COM COLLECT?

As a general policy, no "Personally Identifiable Information" (as defined below) is automatically collected from your visit to the Web Site.

Certain non-personal information, however, including the type of browser being used, its operating system and your IP address may be automatically recorded by the standard operation of the Web Site's internet servers.

a. Personally Identifiable Information
(i) Contact Information. You may visit and use many features on the Web Site without completing any user registration. However, in order to utilize the Power Yoga Online service, purchase products online, complete surveys, enter contests and sweepstakes, or participate in polls, online chats, bulletin boards, guestbooks and/or forums, we may require you to provide us with certain contact and/or demographic information and/or to become a registered user of the Web Site. When you become a registered user, we require you to provide us with your contact information (including your name and email address), and may require your date of birth, gender and zip code, as well as other information, in order to create a password. Our goal is to make your experience as easy and enjoyable as possible.

If you purchase any products on the Web Site or want to utilize certain portions of the Power Yoga Online service, you will additionally need to provide us with your credit card and shipping information. Financial information (credit card numbers, credit card expiration dates, billing address, etc.) that is collected is used to bill you for products and services. Financial information is not used for any purpose other than billing.

b. Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-Personally Identifiable Information can be used to help diagnose server problems, administer the Web Site and generally enhance your online experience, and may include the following:

(i) IP Address. An IP address is a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the Web. We may retain your IP address in order to help us diagnose problems with our servers, to administer our Web Site, to help identify you and your shopping cart, to gather broad anonymous demographic information (such as the number of visitors from a geographic area), to enforce compliance with the PowerYoga.com Web Site terms and conditions or otherwise in order to protect our services, sites, customers, or others.

(ii) Cookies. Cookies are small bits of electronic information that a Web Site can transfer to a visitor’s hard drive to help tailor and keep records of his or her visit to the site. The use of cookies is standard on the Internet and many Web Sites use them. Cookies allow Web Site operators to better customize visits to the site to the visitor’s individual preferences. For example, we use cookies to keep track of your shopping cart and to provide you with a better surfing experience and maximize your enjoyment of the PowerYoga.com Web Site. However, we do not save any password information in cookies. We may additionally use “web bugs” or other similar data collection programs to collect information to provide you with a more enjoyable and easier experience on the PowerYoga.com Web Site. In addition, banner advertisements may be displayed on our site which may contain cookies. The companies who serve our banner advertisements may transfer cookies independent of us, and, as such, we do not control the use of such cookies and in many instances have no access to the information collected by them.

Although most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, you can usually change your browser to prevent that or to notify you when you are sent a cookie. This gives you the chance to decide whether or not to accept the cookie. Even without accepting a cookie, you can still access many of the features on the PowerYoga.com Web Site. However, some parts of the PowerYoga.com Web Site will not function properly or may be considerably slower if you refuse cookies. For example, without cookies, you may experience delays and may have difficulty completing shopping transactions. If you would like more information about cookies, we suggest you visit http://www.cookiecentral.com.
