Advertising and Marketing Technologies

We use a variety of technologies to track your actions on our website and advertise to you through third-party websites and other third-party platforms.

Facebook

We may use “visitor action pixels” from Facebook Inc. (hereinafter “Facebook Pixels”) on our website for retargeting purposes. Facebook Pixels are a type of cookie. Facebook Pixels allow tracking of a Facebook user’s behavior after the user clicks on a Facebook advertisement and is redirected to the advertiser’s website. Using this process, we are able to measure the efficacy of our advertising and marketing through Facebook through anonymized data. Facebook Pixels also allow Facebook to customize its advertising to its users, including providing advertisements for websites that users have already visited. Using this process, Facebook may provide you with advertisements for our website and services. Specific user personal information is not shared with us, but Facebook may store and use personally identifying information for its own marketing and other purposes. You may opt out of this process by modifying your advertising preferences with Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads

Disclosure to Third Party Yoga Teachers

Our Website’s primary purpose is to connect yoga students like you to third party yoga teachers (“Third Party Teachers”). Every Third Party Teacher (and its agents and employees that have access to student information) that connects with students through Our Website is required by contract to maintain the confidentiality of information that you provide through our website that you would reasonably expect to remain private (specifically including student names and contact information and places for meeting students). When you request a session through Our Website, some information (like the size of class requested and the general geographic area where the session is requested) will be available to all Third Party Teachers that access Our Website. Once a session is confirmed with a particular Third Party Teacher, we will share additional information with them in order to coordinate the session, such as your name and the specific location of the session. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve the right to share any information you provide through Our Website (excluding credit card or other payment source information) to Third Party Teachers at any time, which information will be subject to the confidentiality agreements we have with the Third Party Teachers.
