The Website does not require that you register in order to view information about our services. However, registration is required when purchasing classes, products, or services. The Website collects minimal personal information when you register with the Website, when you visit the Website, or any time you provide information to the Website about yourself. The Website may combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from business partners or other companies.
The Website automatically receives and records other non-personally-identifying information (“Non-Personal Information”) on our server logs from your browser even if you do not register with The Website, for example, your IP address, the Website cookie information, and the pages you visit.
The Website uses Non-Personal Information for the following general purposes: to customize the advertising and content you see, improve our services, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients.
In order to purchase services on this Website, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on the registration form. During registration you are required to give contact information (such as name and email address) as well as billing information (when necessary). We use this information for billing purposes and to contact you about the services on our site in which you have expressed interest. When you register with the Website and sign in to our services, you are not anonymous to us. You have the option to provide demographic information (such as gender, birth date and general location) to us; we encourage you to submit this information so we can provide you a more personalized experience on our site.
During registration, you can choose to opt into our newsletter regarding new products and upcoming promotions and events on our Website. In order to ensure that we are providing the best level of service to our Users, DEFINE collects personally identifiable information from our users at several different points on our Website.
DEFINE is the sole owner of the information collected on the Website. We provide you the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of having your personally identifiable information used for certain purposes. For example, if you no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by clicking the Unsubscibe button communications or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Website is committed to protecting the privacy of children. The Website does not knowingly or intentionally collect Personal Information online from children under the age of 18 nor should children under 18 access or use the Site or Services. If you are under 18, but at least 16 years of age, you may register and use the DEFINE website only with the involvement of a parent or guardian. DEFINE does not accept the online registration of minors; please do not attempt to register on our website if you are under the age of 18. Registration of minors must be completed in person at our studio with a parent or guardian. Minors over the age of 16 who have submitted a participant/registration waiver signed by a parent or guardian may sign up for classes online. If we discover that personal information has been submitted by a minor without a signed participant/registration waiver, we will delete such information promptly. DEFINE does not seek or share personal information from minors through this website.
The Website does not rent, trade, or share Personal Information with third parties except when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances: We have your explicit consent to share the information; We wish to contact you with information about products and services from our business partners, which we may do unless you “opt-out” of such communications; We provide Non-Personal Information to interested third-parties for purposes of understanding the usage patterns for certain content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on the Website.
We use both your Personal Information and certain Non-Personal Information to improve the quality and design of the Website and to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing User preferences and trends.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, or legal process of service.
We may share Personal Information if we believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of the Website’s Terms of Services, or as otherwise required by law.
In the event DEFINE goes through a business transaction, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personally identifiable information will likely be among the assets transferred. You will be notified via email of any such change in ownership or control of your Personal Information.
The Website may use web beacons in connection with e-mails sent to the Website users, to let us know whether and when the email was opened. No Personal Information is transmitted through web beacons.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personally identifiable information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We limit access to Personal Information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with Personal Information to provide services to you or in order to do their jobs. The security of your Personal Information is important to us.
