The Institute will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways other than those outlined in this statement. Information that identifies a specific individual will not be disclosed to others without the user’s permission, unless necessary to provide services that the user has requested, or as required by legal requests as noted in the section “Information Sharing and Disclosure.”

In the event your personally identifiable information is requested as part of other programs and site interactivity, such personally identifiable information will be added to your registration information.
Your signing up on one of our websites, checking the opt-in box, and providing your email address is providing your permission to send you information; however, you will always be provided the ability to “opt-out” (unsubscribe) at any time, even after you have provided personal information, by the procedures set forth on the emails we send to you or by contacting the Institute directly (email@example.com or see contact information above). Please note that under certain circumstances, if you choose to opt-out, you may not be eligible for certain benefits for which a name, email address, telephone number, or other personally identifiable information is needed.
A “cookie” is an element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your system. Cookies are pieces of code that are stored on our system that allow us to recognize you and help to optimize your experience when you visit our site. Much of this information is not personally identifiable. Once the user closes the browser, the cookie simply terminates. If users reject the cookie, they may still use our site. Cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users as they visit different sections of the site.
An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you are on the Internet. When you request pages from our Website, our servers log your IP address. The Institute employs IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movements, and gather broad information for aggregate use. We do not use IP addresses to learn other personally identifiable information, such as name or address. The Institute servers automatically log certain information that the Institute uses for statistical analysis of website traffic. The information is stored as log files on the Seatofthesoul.com server. The log files are regularly collected and analyzed by software to produce visitor trend reports. We use such information to administer our websites and, in the aggregate, to understand which areas of our websites are favorites of our users, which areas need improvement, and what technologies are being used so that we may continually improve our websites.
The information that is collected includes:
This information is used to determine:
Server logs do not contain personally identifiable information on individual users, such as names, addresses, email address, occupation, etc. This type of data will only be collected in forms, product sales, or event registrations on Seatofthesoul.com.
Non-personally identifiable information might include the type of computer, technical information about your means of connection to our Website, such as the operating systems and the Internet service providers utilized, and other similar information.
We may share this aggregate statistical information with our partners and trusted affiliates, but we will not share any individual names, email addresses, personal navigational, or other personal information. Some personal information is kept in confidence with our service providers Infusionsoft and Authorize.net, where secure transmission of confidential user data utilizes SSL-certification on all servers and follows industry-standard and financial-standard best practices.
The Institute takes reasonable steps to protect user information. Only employees who require the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. The servers used to store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. If you have any questions about the security at any Institute website, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Institute uses online forms on its websites to collect specific information for product sales and other data collection uses. In cases where private information is collected, such as mailing addresses, phone numbers, work location, credit card numbers, etc., all forms are secured through Secure Socket Layers (SSL) encryption, the most widely accepted and instituted form of data encryption. Of course no transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure; therefore the user provides the Institute with information at his or her own risk.
In addition to Secure Socket Layer encryption during transmission, the Institute takes these additional precautions with user information:
The Institute cannot ensure that third-party websites linked from Seatofthesoul.com will provide equivalent security. Users should check with the privacy policies of those websites before submitting any personally identifiable information.
The Institute makes reasonable efforts to ensure that all of the transactions that occur on its Website are secure. All credit card numbers submitted to our Website are encrypted with 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) technology. Any personal information that you submit as part of a financial transaction is also encrypted with SSL technology. The Institute reveals only the last five digits of the user’s credit card number when confirming an order. Of course, Seatofthesoul.com transmits the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing. It is important for the user to protect against unauthorized access to his or her password and to his or her computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer, and do not send credit card numbers or other financial or proprietary information via email.
Your peace of mind and security is very important to us. If you do not feel comfortable submitting your personal information online, you can submit such information by calling 541-482-1515.
The Institute uses an outside credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. The Institute partners with other parties to provide specific services such as a secured site for financial transactions. When the user signs up for these services, the Institute will share names, or contact and other information, that is necessary for the third party to provide these services with the permission of the user, which is implied by user’s online submission of such information. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
seatofthesoul.com is registered with the Authorize.Net Verified Merchant Seal program.
In the event that we are legally compelled to disclose your personally identifiable information to a third party, we will notify you unless doing so would violate the law or court order.
The Institute may provide to third parties non-personal information that does not allow you to be identified or contacted and that is combined with the non-personal information of other users.
The Institute’s website is a general audience website and does not knowingly market to or collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 18 years old.

We strongly urge all parents to participate in their children’s exploration of the Internet and any online services, and to teach their children about protecting their personal information while online.
