At Sam Rao Yoga we are totally committed to protecting your privacy. Any information we collect about you was done so in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
As you may be aware on the 25th May one of the biggest changes to UK data privacy law comes into effect via an EU directive.
The General Data Protection Regulation, known as GDPR, is a really positive step towards you having more control over how your data is used and how you are contacted. The changes will also help to better protect your personal data from the old DPA 1998.

We collect information about you for 2 reasons: firstly, to process an online order and secondly, to provide you with the best possible service.
This may include emailing you with our occasional newsletter which will inform you on our latest articles and special offers.

If you did not click on the “subscribe to newsletter” box we will not send you any further information. We do not pass your information onto any other organisations.

The type of information we will collect about you includes, your name, address, phone number and email address.

We will never collect sensitive information about you without your explicit consent. The information we hold will be accurate and up to date. You can check the information that we hold about you by emailing us. If you find any inaccuracies we will delete or correct it promptly. The personal information which we hold will be held securely in accordance with our internal security policy and the Web Trader Code. If we intend to transfer your information outside the EEA (European Economic Area) we will always obtain your consent first. We may use technology to track the patterns of behaviour of visitors to our site. This can include using a “cookie” which would be stored on your browser. You can usually modify your browser to prevent this happening. The information collected in this way can be used to identify you unless you modify your browser settings. If you have any questions/comments about privacy, you should email us.

The main changes for conformance to GDPR are around how you would like to be contacted.

I have updated my privacy notice to reflect these changes and I am committed to treating your personal data with the utmost care, I am taking this opportunity to contact you and give you the opportunity to ask for removal from my regular email contacts list. I do not use a contact database and I DO NOT send out mass emails. I do send emails in response to any requests that come in and I would like you to confirm whether you would like me to continue to keep your email address on my contacts list.

I have a list of your emails on my YogaTrail account. IF you do not wish to receive emails via YogaTrail source, please use the UNSUBSCRIBE function on and help me with removing your details.

If you would like to continue to hear from me with regards to yoga classes, workshops, retreats, events and news, please do note my compliance to GDPR and a statement on my emails, my website and all/any communication with and from me.

If not, please simply send an email saying that you wish to be removed from communications from/with Sam Rao Yoga.

I confirm that I do not send out mass emails and that policy is in place.

I will also bring manual sign up forms to classes for those who missed the email and I will send a further email to anyone I haven’t heard from giving them another opportunity to opt-in.

Anyone who I have not heard from by 25th May will be automatically unsubscribed and their data removed from computer and file.

Please be assured that your personal details are for the use of Sam Rao Yoga only with regards to yoga related event, news, workshops and regular purchases of books of tickets, books and DVDs. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me..
