Your privacy is very important to us. Please read the following policy (the “Privacy Policy”) to understand how your information will be treated. These privacy practices apply to any websites or platforms under the ownership of Social Ballroom Dance (collectively, the "Sites").

Our Sites and associated communications from us may contain links to third-party sites, which are not subject to this Privacy Policy. We recommend that you read the privacy policy of any such sites that you visit. This Privacy Policy applies only to the Sites.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We will post any changes that may be made to this Privacy Policy on this page, including the date of the latest changes, located at the top of the page. Especially significant changes will be accompanied by a more prominent notice (which may include email notification of policy changes for those that have created accounts and provided an email address). We encourage you to check the date of our Privacy Policy whenever you visit the Sites for any updates or changes.

Consent

By visiting our Sites, you are consenting to the information collection, use and sharing policies as described in this Privacy Policy, as modified from time to time by us. In order to access certain functionalities of the Sites you will be required to register by providing certain information. This consent does NOT apply to the data management and policy of third party sites.

Information We Collect

The information we collect from visitors to our Sites depends upon how visitors choose to interact with us through the Sites. Some services are offered through the Sites that do not require you to register for an account or provide any personal information to us. For example, you can read materials such as our blogs without providing personal information. However, using our full range of services

involves providing personal information to us. Personal information is information that can be used to identify you, such as your name, address, email address, telephone number or billing information.

The following is a list of types of information we may collect and ways in which it is collected:

Information You Provide. When you sign up for a service that requires registration, we ask you for personal information such as your name and email address. We also collect information you provide when requesting a service, and this information may, among other things, include personal information or reveal details about your preferences.

User Communications. When you send email or other communications to Social Ballroom Dance, for example, through our 'Ask an Instructor' series, we retain those communications in order to process your request and improve our service.

Logged Information. We automatically collect and store some information that you do not actively provide, such as your internet protocol (IP) address, software and hardware attributes such as browser type, the date and time of your visit, and the last website you visited prior to visiting the Sites. This information is used to enhance the services we provide to you.

Cookies. When you visit the Sites, we send one or more cookies (that is, small text files) to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can change your browser’s settings to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features and services will not function properly if cookies are disabled. Cookies may contain account information such as your user name and password if you opt in to the automatic login option.

Other Internet Technology. We may use other technology, such as pixel tags and web beacons, to track use of our Sites. We may also include web beacons in email messages, newsletters, or other communications to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.

How We Use The Information

In general we use personal and other information collected through the Sites to fulfill your requests for services, contact you, customize content, and improve our services. More specifically, we use personal and other information as follows:

Provide Services. To provide our services, for example to respond through the 'Ask an Instructor' series.

Communicate. Use your personal information to communicate with you generally, for example to respond to a query from you, or to provide you with updates or information concerning our services or the services of other companies that we believe you may be interested in. For information regarding opting out of some of these communications, please see “Your Choices” below.

Customization. To customize the content that you see on the Sites and in associated communications. For example, communication from Social Ballroom Dance to you may include information based on personal and other information.

Research. To improve our services we conduct research on how are services are used. For example, we may request that you complete user surveys, and use the resulting data to improve the Sites.

Improve Usability. We use cookies to improve the quality of our service by storing user preferences and tracking user trends, such as how people use the Sites. We also use other Internet technology, as described above under “Information We Collect.”

Information Sharing and Disclosure

We do NOT sell, share or disclose your contact information or personal information for any reason except to provide the services you request, when you give us permission, and in the following cases:

Providing Services. Personal and other information is anonymously shared with our selected suppliers, service providers and partner sites in order to assist them with providing services to you. For example, we may provide such information to third parties in connection with operating and maintaining the Sites, fulfilling your requests for services, processing credit card payments (if

applicable), performing business and sales analysis, and offering contests or conducting surveys. We do NOT provide contact details to other companies for their marketing or mailing list.

Content Sharing. Content (meaning any materials, including, without limitation, text, pictures, graphics, sound files and other files, collectively or in any combination, referred to as the “Content”) that you make available publicly on the Sites is generally displayed to other visitors to the Sites. Content that you make available publicly may be collected and used by others, and we cannot control what other users do with this Content.

Complying With The Law. We disclose personal and other information if we have a good-faith belief that the disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with the law, legal process or an enforceable government request; to enforce applicable terms of use for our services; to detect, prevent or otherwise address illegal activity, fraud, or security issues; or to protect the property or safety of our users, Social Ballroom Dance, or the public as required or permitted by law.

Your Choices

As a user of the Sites you have the following options:

Account Review. If you have an account with us, you can review and update your account information (such as your name and contact information) online by making the appropriate selections or changes. We make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information and the ability to correct the information if it is inaccurate or to delete it at your

request (if it is not required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes). We require users to reliably identify themselves and the information they wish to access, correct, or remove before processing these requests, and we may decline to process requests that we believe in good faith are unreasonable or unduly burdensome (such as requests that are

repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be impractical to satisfy).

Service Review. You can add, edit, pause or remove services that you have subscribed to at any time by logging into the Sites.

Deactivate Account. You can deactivate your account with us at any time. If you deactivate your account and later wish to reopen it and again receive services from us, you may be required to re-enter your account information and resubscribe to any services you wish to receive. However, if you deactivate your account we may retain certain information associated with your account for record-keeping. We generally do not remove information that you have made publicly available, and information that has already been provided to third parties as described in this Privacy Policy may be retained by those third parties and will be subject to their policies, and not this Privacy Policy.

Opt Out. If we propose to use personal information for any purposes other than those described in this Privacy Policy, we will offer you an effective way to opt out of the use of personal information for those other purposes. We do reserve the right to contact you on matters that we believe in good faith to be urgent or of particular importance even if you opt out from other communications, but these would not include marketing communications.

Information Security

The Sites are protected by SSL protocol, and has been validated by our s2Member security system. These security measures are meant to protect against unauthorized access to and unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of personal information. These measures include administrative and physical security measures intended to guard against unauthorized access to personal data. No method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is one hundred percent secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
