PRIVACY POLICY

INFORMATION COLLECTED

This website is one of several websites relating to and/or operated by Training4DanceTeachers (Dr Laura Osweiler) (we/us).

We have implemented this Privacy Policy to govern the use of personally identifiable information collected from this website. Except as otherwise discussed in this Privacy Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information collected through our websites.

This Privacy Policy is intended to provide you with information as to: the type of information that is collected; how the collected information is used and with whom it is shared; how we protect the information; how you can have such information modified and/or removed.

 

TYPES OF COLLECTED INFORMATION

We may collect personally-identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information when you use our websites. Personally-identifiable information is information that can be used to identify you personally, either alone or in combination with other information (“Personal Information”), and non-personally identifiable information cannot be used to identify a specific individual (together with the Personal Information, your “Information”). The Personal Information collected through our website is used to facilitate the transactions or information you may request, and otherwise as described in this Privacy Policy. For example, we may collect Personal Information if you sign up for a subscription service, inquire about classes, participate in chats, blogs, request other information from us, subscribe to any of our online newsletters or email lists, or if you provide information through our website for any other reasons. You may choose not to provide certain information, but if so, you may not be able to participate in certain Training4DanceTeachers activities and transactions.

The Personal Information collected will vary depending on the nature of your interactions with our websites and your specific requests, but it may include your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, or other information that can be used to identify you personally.

We do not have access to financial account data in unencrypted form through our websites. Rather, we use third party service providers to process all payment transactions for our websites (whether the payment is by credit card, PayPal, or otherwise). Although these third-party processors will notify us if your payment has cleared and may submit some of your Personal Information to us, they will not provide your credit card or other payment account information to us, and the third party will be solely responsible for any issues that may arise with your payment transaction.

 

HOW IS INFORMATION COLLECTED?

Information may be collected in several different ways through our websites, including but not limited to those described below:

Information You Voluntarily Provide
