Privacy Statement

Your privacy is important to me and I want you to know what I do with your data when you use my site or communicate with me.

1. Introduction:
At Sam Dyllon – Yoga, Meditation, and Mindfulness I respect your right to privacy and comply with our obligations under the British and European data protection acts. The purpose of this website Privacy Statement is to outline how I deal with any personal data you provide to me while visiting this website. By visiting Sam Dyllon – Yoga, Meditation, and Mindfulness, you are accepting the terms of this Privacy Statement. Any external links to other websites are clearly identifiable as such, and I am not responsible for the content or the privacy policies of these other websites.

2. Types of information collected:
I retain two types of information:
Personal Data: this is data that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you, and may include your name, company name, address, email address, and/or user IP addresses, in circumstances where they have not been deleted, clipped, or anonymised and telephone number. Such information is only collected from you if you voluntarily submit it to me.
Non-Personal Data: like most websites, I gather statistical and other analytical information collected on an aggregate basis of all visitors to my website. This non-personal data comprises information that cannot be used to identify or contact you, such as demographic information regarding, for example, user IP addresses where they have not been clipped or anonymised, browser types, and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of my website.

3. Purposes for which I hold your information 
Non-Personal Data: I use the non-personal data gathered from visitors to my website in an aggregate form to get a better understanding of where my visitors come from, and to help me better design and organise my website.
Cookies: this website uses “cookie” technology. A cookie is a little piece of text stored by the browser on your computer, at the request of my server. I use cookies to improve the quality of my service by storing user preferences and tracking user trends. You are always free to decline my cookies. You can also delete cookie files from your computer at your discretion. Note however, that if you decline our cookies or ask for notification each time a cookie is being sent, some of the features and services of the Sam Dyllon – Yoga, Meditation, and Mindfulness website may not function properly.
Personal Data:  I will process any Personal Data you provide to me for the following purposes: (i) to provide you with the information or services you have requested; (ii) to contact you if required in connection with your request or to respond to any communications you might send to me; (iii) to send you the Sam Dyllon – Yoga, Meditation, and Mindfulness newsletter, event alerts, information about product releases, service notifications, and to communicate with you about relevant industry information and activities. This is only pertinent if you voluntarily sign up for this service.

4. Disclosure of information to third parties:  I do not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others. All information is used solely for my own internal marketing. I may provide non-personal data to third parties, where such information is combined with similar information of other users of our website. For example, I might inform third parties of the number of unique users who visit my website, the demographic breakdown of my community users, or the activities that visitors to my website engage in while on my website. The third parties to whom I may provide this information may include potential or actual advertisers, providers of advertising services (including website tracking services), commercial partners, sponsors, licensees, researchers, and other similar parties. I will disclose your personal data if I believe in good faith that I am required to disclose it in order to comply with any applicable law, a summons, a search warrant, a court or regulatory order, or other statutory requirement.

5. Sale of business: I reserve the right to transfer information (including your personal data) to a third party in the event of a sale, merger, liquidation, receivership, or transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of Sam Dyllon – Yoga, Meditation, and Mindfulness provided that the third party agrees to adhere to the terms of this Privacy Statement, and provided that the third party only uses your personal data for the purposes that you provided it to me. You will be notified in the event of any such transfer, and you will be afforded an opportunity to opt-out.

6. Security: your personal data is held by Sam Dyllon – Yoga, Meditation, and Mindfulness in accordance with industry best practices. I do not store your credit card information, number, expiry date, or CVV security code on my servers. To ensure optimal security, I use a third party payment processing through Stripe for all credit card billing. Stripe automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to mine using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available). Before you use the Stripe website, the Stripe server checks that you’re using an approved browser – one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher. I take all reasonable steps (including appropriate technical and organisational measures) to protect your personal data.

7. Users under 18: the content of Sam Dyllon – Yoga, Meditation, and Mindfulness is not directed at users under 18 years of age. When you provide information about yourself as a user, you are thus representing yourself as 18 years of age or older. My policy is that I do not knowingly collect, use, or disclose personal information about visitors under 18 years of age. However if I do become aware of having collected personally identifiable information from a user under 18 without consent of a parent or legal guardian, I will remove such information from my servers.

8. Updating, verifying, and deleting personal data: you also have a right to have your personal data corrected, if inaccurate, or – in certain circumstances – erased. Please forward any such requests in writing by email to

If at any time I decide to use personal data in a manner significantly different from that stated in this Privacy Statement, or otherwise disclosed to you at the time it was collected, I will notify you by email, and you will have a choice as to whether or not I use your information in the new manner.

11. Governing law and jurisdiction: this Privacy Statement is governed by the laws of the UK, and is subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the British courts.
