Privacy Policy

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

By visiting this website, you reveal certain information to us. This information falls into two categories:

  • technical information provided by your browser during your visit, simply by viewing the website.
  • voluntary information provided by you when you choose to submit a contact form, that is clearly identified by the contact form.

We are committed to keeping private all information you reveal to us. We use technical information for operating our website service: for capacity planning and resource allocation, and for dealing with cyber attacks such as hacking and denial of service. We use voluntary information to track and respond to feedback and requests from our website visitors.


We never sell, trade, or otherwise divulge to any third party technical or voluntary information that you reveal to us, except for the purposes described above or as required by law. We do not process your information or correlate your information with third-party data except for the purposes described above. In providing information to a third party for the above purposes, we require that party to adhere to this policy.

We take prudent measures to prevent unauthorized access to information you reveal to us. While no computer system can be totally protected from attack, we believe we are taking reasonable steps to safeguard your information.


We use several trusted companies to process financial payments for classes and services. All financial information is encrypted in transit, and no financial information is retained on our site. When you make a payment from our site, you are subject to the privacy policies of PayPal and Vimeo as well.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you listen to our Audio files or watch our Video files, you are accessing embedded content. Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. That means, these other sites (Google, Vimeo, etc.)  may track your usage and behavior. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Contact Forms

If you leave a comment on our site, your name, email address and other information may be saved in our database. If you have agreed to be added to our mailing list, your information will be shared with our e-list service, MailChimp, and be subject to their privacy policies as well.


In response to your submission of voluntary information using this website, we may attempt to contact you by phone, postal mail, or email.

We maintain distribution email lists, and we may subscribe you to any of them based on the voluntary information you provide. We always provide a way to unsubscribe from any of our mailing lists.


When you visit pages on our site, your IP address, site you came from, length of stay and site you left for will be recorded for analysis. Also, if you searched for our site and clicked on a results link, some of your search data (such as keywords) will be recorded. We use this information to provide a better service for you.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

This Privacy Policy does not describe handling of information that you might reveal to us in the course of a business relationship with us, even if you reveal the information through this website. Handling of such information may be governed by a services contract.

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, or about your voluntary or technical information covered by it, you can contact us online.
