We work together with other businesses to provide some of our services to you. Sometimes fulfilling our obligations to you requires that we share your information with these businesses. For example, we share information with credit card processors and companies that will ship products to you. We also use other companies to provide services to us, including storing our customer data, sending emails and providing marketing assistance.

8. Security

Our website takes several precautions to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. When you submit personally identifiable information via our site, we make good faith efforts to ensure the information is protected both online and off-line. When our order form asks users to enter personally identifiable information (such as a credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the industry leading encryption software – SSL. While we use SSL encryption to protect personally identifiable information online, we also use precautions to protect user information off-line. Access to all of our users’ information, not just the personally identifiable information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices and we make good-faith efforts to store your personal information in a secure operating environment. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a billing clerk or customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. If you have any questions about the security at our websites, you can send an email to iam [@] yogagoddess [dot] ca. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk.

Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner.
