By continuing to use the Website after we post any such changes, you accept the Privacy Policy as modified.

Children Under The Age Of 13

Our Website is not intended for children under 13 years of age. No one under age 13 may provide any information to or on the Website. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you are under 13, do not use or provide any information on this Website or on or through any of its features/register on the Website, make any purchases through the Website, use any of the interactive or public comment features of this Website or provide any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, email address, or any screen name or user name you may use.

Information We Collect About You

When you access the Website, its Contents, Products and/or Services we will learn certain information about you during your visit.

Information You Provide To Us. 

The Website provides various places for users to provide information. We collect information that users provide by filling out forms on the Website, communicating with us via contact forms, responding to surveys, search queries on our search feature, providing comments or other feedback, and providing information when ordering, purchasing or registering for Contents, Products and/or Services via the Website. The information collected may include your name, e-mail, phone number, records and copies of your correspondence such as e-mail messages together with your e-mail address and our responses, your contributions to public areas of the Website, and if you have made a purchase through the Website, your address, billing information, and details of purchase transactions you carry out through the Website (collectively, “personal information”). You are not required to provide any personal information to merely access or visit the Website. 

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available for viewing by third parties online – for example on message boards, web logs, through email, or in chat areas – that information can be seen, collected and used by others besides us. We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information.

If you are located in the European Economic Area (EEA), this means we are regulated under the General Data Protection Regulation which applies across the European Union (including in the United Kingdom) and we are responsible as data controller of that personal information for the purposes of those laws.

Information We Collect Through Automatic Data Collection Technology. 

This Website is hosted by Wix and therefore uses cookies and similar technologies, which are small files or pieces of text that download to a device when a visitor accesses a website or app. As you navigate through our Website, we may use automatic data collection technologies including Wix Analytics to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns. This will generally include information about your location, your traffic pattern through our Website, and any communications between your computer and our Website.  Among other things, Wix Analytics will collect data about the type of computer you use, your Internet connection, your IP address, your operating system, and your browser type.

The information we collect automatically is used for statistical data and will not include personal information. We use this data to improve our Website and our Services. To the extent that you voluntarily provide personal information to us, our systems will associate the automatically collected information with your personal information.

We also reserve the right to use technological equivalents of cookies, including social media pixels. These pixels allow social media sites to track visitors to outside websites so as to tailor advertising messages users see while visiting that social media website. We reserve the right to use these pixels in compliance with the policies of the various social media sites.​

If your browser sends a "Do Not Track" signal, only a generic cookie will be placed on your device while the website is accessed.

How We Use Your Information

We use information that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including any personal information, to send you e-mails when you sign up for our newsletter or request information from us, to respond to comments and questions, to provide support to users of the Website, to provide you with information about our services, to notify you about changes to our Website, to provide you with information, products or services you request or purchase from us, to fulfill orders and deliver services and products and complete customer transactions, to process payments, and for billing and collection, to carry out our obligations and enforce our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us, in any other way we may describe when you provide the information, to provide us with an overview of how people are accessing and using this Website, to understand and analyze usage trends and preferences of our visitors and users so that we can improve our service and develop new products, services, features and functionalities and improve our Website performance and customer service. 

Email Policies and CAN-SPAM Act

We are committed to keeping your e-mail address confidential. We do not sell, rent, or lease your personal information to third parties, and will not disclose your email address to any third parties except as allowed in the section titled Disclosure of Your Information: Who We Share Your Information With. We will maintain the information you send via e-mail in accordance with applicable federal law.

In compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act, all e-mails sent from Learn Healing Arts will clearly state who the e-mail is from and provide clear information on how to contact the sender. In addition, all e-mail messages provide users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving future communications from us by clicking on the unsubscribe link located at the bottom of any e-mail they receive from us at any time. After unsubscribing we will discontinue sending the messages as soon as technically feasible.

Disclosure of Your Information: Who We Share Your Information With

Learn Healing Arts respects your privacy and we do not sell, rent, lease, trade or otherwise transfer any information collected whether automatically or through your voluntary action to third parties (beyond what is necessary for the basic functionality of an online service or for fulfilling a customer transaction if applicable) without your consent. 

We may disclose personal information that we collect, including that you provide as described in this Privacy Policy:

  • To our subsidiaries and affiliates.

  • To third parties including, for example: contractors, service providers and ‘data processors’ as described below, that we use to support our business and our Website. All such third parties will always be bound by contractual obligations to keep personal information confidential and use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them. 

  • To a third party, including a lawyer or collection agency, when necessary to enforce our Website Terms & Conditions or any other applicable terms of use, terms & conditions or agreement between you and Learn Healing Arts, including for billing and collection purposes.

  • To any successor in interest in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of Learn Healing Arts’ assets and/or business.

  • If we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of Learn Healing Arts, other users of the Website or the general public. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

  • To comply with any legal obligations such as court order, law or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request and when compelled by a court or other governmental entity to do so. 

  • For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information.

  • With your consent.

We are the ‘data controller” of any personal information collected through the Website and determine the purposes for which and the manner in which any personal information is used and processed. However, we pay for the services of third party ‘data processors’ who hold and/or process personal information of users of the Website on our behalf. We may have multiple data processors at any given time, including, but not limited to:

  • our email marketing and email management software service provider such as Mailchimp and Constant Contact or other similar reputable provider

  • our Website hosting service provider (currently Wix)

  • various payment merchants to allow visitors to purchase through our Website

  • Google

  • Facebook

  • Other social media sites

Note that, while the above entities act as data processors on our behalf, some or all of them may also act as data controllers in their own rights. For example, if you purchase a product or service through our Website, payment merchants decide which information they need from our customers in order to process their payments correctly. The payment merchants or other data processing entities may also exercise control over the other purposes that a customer's data is used for, for example direct marketing of their products and services, which is not within our control. The payment merchants or other data processing entities also have legal requirements of their own to meet, such as regulations relating to the use and retention of payment card data or other personal data. And, finally, each data processor has its own terms and conditions and privacy policies that apply directly to our website users.

Because the Website is hosted on Wix, we agreed to Wix’s Data Processing Addendum, which addresses how Wix processes data of our Website visitors on our behalf.

Use and Transfer of Your Information Out of the European Economic Area (EEA), the UK and Switzerland

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires certain safeguards when transferring personal data from outside the European Economic Area (EEA), the United Kingdom (UK) and Switzerland to "third countries," which are all countries outside these protected areas, including the United States. This Website is operated in the United States and third parties with whom we might share your personal information as explained above are also located in the United States. If you are located in the EEA, the UK, Switzerland or elsewhere outside of the United States, please be aware that any information you provide will be transferred to the United States. By using this Website, participating in any of its services and/or providing your information, you consent to this transfer.

 

The United States does not have the same data protection laws as the EEA, United Kingdom and Switzerland. While the European Commission has not given a formal decision that United States provides an adequate level of data protection similar to those which apply in the EEA, the UK and Switzerland, any transfer of your personal information will be subject to the derogation in Article 49 permitting non-repetitive transfers that concern only a limited number of data subjects, as permitted by Article 49 of the General Data Protection Regulation that is designed to help safeguard your privacy rights and give you remedies in the unlikely event of a misuse of your personal information.

If you would like further information, see How to Contact Us below.  We will not otherwise transfer your personal data outside of the EEA, the UK or Switzerland, or to any organization (or subordinate bodies) governed by public international law or which is set up under any agreement between two or more countries.

How Long Your Personal Information Will Be Kept

We will retain all non-customer personal information until you let us know you would like for us to delete it or unsubscribe from our email contacts, which you are free to do at any time. However, if you make a purchase from our Website and become a customer, we will hold personal data in our files for six years as advised by the IRS. 

How We Protect Your Information: Data Security and Information Storage

We employ commercially reasonable methods to ensure the security of the information you provide to us and the information we collect automatically. This includes using standard security protocols and working only with reputable third-party vendors. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorized manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we request that you do not send private information to us by email. However, doing so is allowed, but at your own risk. 

Whenever Learn Healing Arts collects sensitive personal information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to Learn Healing Arts in a secure way. Customers can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of their web browser or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

However, unfortunately, please note that no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Website.  You acknowledge that (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this Website cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered within transit by a third party. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website.

We will notify you and any applicable authorities of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.

Message Boards And Chats

We may make message boards, chat rooms, and other interactive forums available as part of the Website or any of its Services. You should be aware that any information which you post to these interactive forums or otherwise choose to make publicly available, become public and third parties may use and view your information. By using these interactive forums, you agree that Learn Healing Arts is not responsible for any information that you disclose or communicate in such forums, and any disclosures you make are at your own risk.

Third-party Use of Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

Some content or applications on the Website may be served by third parties, content providers and application providers. These third parties may use cookies alone or in conjunction with web beacons or other tracking technologies to collect information about you when you use our Website. 

We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions, you should contact the responsible provider directly.

Third-Party Links 

Occasionally we may also include or offer third-party products, services, or links to other websites. These third-party websites may or may not have separate and independent privacy policies. When you access another website or purchase third-party products or services through the Website, use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the website you are visiting or the provider of such products or services. We, therefore, have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites and/or their privacy policy (or lack thereof).

Your Rights: Accessing, Correcting and Deleting Your Information

As noted above, if you want to unsubscribe from receiving e-mails from Learn Healing Arts, you may do so at any time. Each e-mail from Learn Healing Arts includes instructions for unsubscribing from these e-mail communications.

You may contact us via the contact form on this website in order request access to, correct or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. 

Please note that we may retain some or all of the information you submit for backups, archiving, prevention of fraud and abuse, analytics, satisfaction of legal obligations, or where we otherwise reasonably believe that we have a legitimate reason to do so.

You may also decline to share certain personal information with us, in which case we may not be able to provide you with some of the features and functionality of our services. 

When you place an order through the Website, we will maintain your order information for our records unless and until you ask us to delete this information. We are required to keep some basic information about our customers including transaction data for tax and legal purposes and therefore there is some information that cannot be deleted.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. – See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

Pursuant to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

  • Users can visit our Website anonymously

  • There is a link to our Privacy Policy on our home page or at a minimum on the first significant page after entering our Website.

  • Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’ and can be easily be found on the page specified above.

  • Users will be notified of any changes to our Privacy Policy:

    • On our Website Privacy Policy page

  • Users are able to change their personal information:

    • By emailing us

    • By logging into their account on our Website if they have one

As noted above, if your browser sends a "Do Not Track" signal, only a generic cookie will be placed on your device while the website is accessed.

California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

The CCPA took effect on January 1, 2020 and is intended to protect the personal information of California residents. The CCPA has certain threshold requirements which a company must meet in order to be required to comply with its provisions.  Upon information and belief, we do not meet those thresholds.  In the event of a change in our status, and if the data that you provide in the course of your use of the Website is governed by CCPA, we will abide by the relevant portions of the Act.

If you are a resident of the state of California, you may have the right to: request disclosure of the personal information we have collected about you and the types of third parties with whom it has been shared; request a portable copy of your information; opt out from marketing messages or the sale of your information to third parties; and request deletion of your personal information. To make these requests, please contact us via the contact form on this website
