PranaSpirit Nutrition & Wellness, LLC Privacy Policy

Effective Date: October 25,, 2020

Welcome to https://www.ilenecohen.com (the “Site”) provided by PranaSpirit Nutrition & Wellness, LLC (“PranaSpirit” or “we” or “our” or “us”).  This Privacy Policy applies to information collected in connection with access to and use of our Site by visitors, and describes the types of information collected, how we use such information, and how we protect it.  By using this Site or voluntarily providing information to us, you consent to the collection and use of your information by PranaSpirit in accordance with this Privacy Policy.  If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, you may not use PranaSpirit’s services. 

  1. Protected Health Information and HIPAA Compliance

When you, your parent, or your other personal representative shares with us any health related information in order to receive nutrition advice through the Site, such information is likely to be protected health information (“PHI”) subject to the privacy and security safeguards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and its regulations (“HIPAA”).  PranaSpirit’s use and disclosure of your PHI is governed by its HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices, but this Privacy Policy provides additional details regarding how PranaSpirit protects the privacy and security of PHI and personally identifiable information (“PII”) provided through the Site or otherwise.  If you use our other services and do not submit any health-related information that would otherwise be subject to HIPAA (such as a Site visitor who books an appointment for yoga that does not involve any nutrition consulting by us), then the terms of this Privacy Policy will govern our use and disclosure of your PII as detailed in Sections 2, 3, 5 below.

  1. Personally Identifiable Information Collected

We collect PII from you when you submit it to us, including by registering on the Site; completing any forms provided by us; signing up for our services and newsletter; and contacting us via email or otherwise. Such PII may include, for example, your name, last name, email address, mailing address, billing address, telephone number, and payment method. We may combine PII we collect from you with information we receive about you from other sources, such as address update services. Our card processor stores all credit card information. They conduct the entire credit card transaction. We only store a record that the transaction took place. We may collect PII from you when you write a review on our Site. However, we do not ask, and you should not enter, your full name anywhere in your review. 

Each time you visit the Site, we may also automatically collect certain types of information about your computer or device, such as your IP address, operating system, browser, domain, and other technical information that may be collected and linked with your PII.

  1. Use of the Information Collected

We may use your PII for any of the following purposes: 

  • To book your appointment and provide services to you.

  1. Disclosing PII

We will not share your personally identifiable information with third parties except as follows: 

  • To our service providers to allow them to perform a business, professional or technical support function for us.

  • In response to a subpoena or court order, or a request from a law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights, or to defend against claims; or to protect the safety or security of the public or of users of our Site

  •  To any other third party with your prior consent to do so.

 

We may also share aggregate, non-personally identifiable information about Site users with third parties. 

Please note that if you voluntarily submit your PII for posting on the Site, such as a review, testimonial or log post, the information becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others, so you should use care before posting information about yourself online.

You may also exercise your rights, subject to applicable laws, to request that we delete or restrict access to your PII.

  1. Protecting Children

Under Age 13

We understand the importance of protecting children's privacy in the interactive online world. The Site is not designed for, or intentionally targeted at, children under 13 years of age. It is not our policy to intentionally collect or maintain information about anyone under the age of 13.  No one under the age of 13 should submit any PII to us or the Site.

Under Age 18

Minors under 18 years of age may have PII that they have provided to us through the Site deleted by sending an email as detailed in the “Contact Us” section below.  Please note that, while we make reasonable efforts to comply with such requests, deletion of your PII does not ensure complete and comprehensive removal of that data from all systems.

  1. Third Party Websites

The Site may contain links to third-party websites, such as social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, which may have privacy policies that differ from our own. We are not responsible for the activities and practices that take place on these websites. Accordingly, we recommend that you review the privacy policy posted on any external site before disclosing any personal information. Please contact those websites directly if you have any questions about their privacy policies. 

  1. Security

We take reasonable steps on the Site to help to protect any PII you have provided to us from loss, misuse or alteration. However, please be aware that no method of electronic storage can ever be 100% secure. Therefore, as is the case with any organization, we are not in a position to guarantee the absolute security of your information.  In this regard, we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data while you are on the Internet. At a minimum, we encourage you to make sure that you are using a secure browser as you surf the Internet. 

  1. Do Not Track 

Do Not Track (DNT) is a privacy preference that users can set in some web browsers, allowing users to opt out of tracking by websites and online services. At the present time, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has not yet established universal standards for recognizable DNT signals and therefore, we do not recognize DNT.

  1. Retention of your PII

We will store your PII for as long as we believe is necessary or appropriate (i) to carry out the purpose(s) for which we collected it, or (ii) to comply with applicable laws, contracts, or other rules or regulations.

  1. Intended solely for United States users

Our Site is intended only for users within the United States. You understand that if you access our Site from a country outside the United States, you will be transferring PII about yourself to the United States. You understand that the privacy laws of the United States may not be as comprehensive as those in your country, and you agree that the transfer of your PII occurs with your consent. 

  1. Changes to this Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time, including as required to keep current with rules and regulations, new technologies and security standards. When we do, we will post the change(s) on our Site and display an effective date on the policy in the upper left corner of this Privacy Policy so that it will be easier for you to know when there has been a change.
