We receive and may store any information you enter on our Website or otherwise provide to us. This includes information that can identify you (“Personal Information”), including your first and last name, telephone number, postal and email addresses, children’s names, school and classes, user name and password, and medical information. We also request information about your family and preferences, including demographic data. You can choose not to provide such information to us, but in general, some information about you is required for you to enjoy the benefits of being a visitor or client. Only registered members of Mind Massage will have access to your Personal Information. Only registered members can post events, participate in discussion forums, transmit Mind Massage content to themselves and others, access members-only newsletters, and enter surveys or contests. In addition, some information is also required in order for you to ask us a question or initiate other transactions on our Website. You may also wish to provide photos, messages, videos, ads, listings or other content (“User Content”) through our Website or to other members. Mind Massage will retain any such User Content in order for members to review what they have previously shared and for others to comment or respond to such User Content. Sharing any User Content is at the member’s own risk.
Information About others:
You will have the opportunity to provide other people’s contact information to our Website, for example, to invite them to join Mind Massage. You should obtain the consent of these individuals before providing Mind Massage with their information. Mind Massage will only use such information to send the invitation email and any reminders to the potential member. Mind Massage may store this information to send the invitation email, register the new member if the invitation is accepted, and track and administer Mind Massage’s referral programs.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Information from other sources:
We may also periodically obtain personal and non-personal information about you from affiliated entities, business partners and other independent third-party sources, doctors, or other therapists and add it to other information about you. For example, if you visit Mind Massage by “clicking-through” from a site operated by one of our business partners, and you have registered with that partner. Mind Massage may share information about you that you have provided to that partner with us. Examples of other information we may receive include contact information and demographic information. As another example, if you access third-party services, such as social media services, through our Website, we may collect information such as your user name, password, and other information made available to us through those services.
We automatically collect some information about your computer or device when you visit Mind Massage. For example, we will collect session data, including your IP address, Web browser software, unique device ID (if you use a smartphone or tablet) and referring Website. We also may collect information about your online activity, such as content viewed and pages visited. One of our goals in collecting this automatic information is to help us understand the interests of our users and customize your user experience.
