  • User Accounts / Profiles: Our digital subscription requires you to create a personal profile / user account to allow you to download content you subscribe to. The information provided here includes your personal details and preferences as well as your user name and password.  You agree to allow Yoga Llama to access and store the credentials you provide to use and disclose according to this policy.  Should you at any time cancel your subscription or close your account, Yoga Llama will endeavour to delete your personal information as soon as is practically possible and will retain information deemed legally necessary.

2. Passive information

Information is passively collected from the subscriber.

  • Passive information is collected using technology for example server logs, cookies and web beacons and we use this information to administer, operate and improve our digital offering.

Security

Your security, the security of your information and the integrity of our digital platform is of utmost importance to us.  We use reasonable security measures to protect personal information from loss, destruction, disclosure or misuse, but no security measure is guaranteed to be completely fail proof.  To that end, we cannot warrant the ultimate security of your information and you provide the information entirely at your own risk.
