Terms and conditions

Please carefully read our privacy policy below and Terms and Conditions. By accessing the website, our products or training, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions.

Who we are

Our website address is: http://yogaforpaincare.com. Yoga for Pain Care Australia is a social enterprise formed by Finding Yoga Pty Ltd in Perth, Australia. You can get in touch about any concerns at [email protected] or by any of the details in our contact page.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We collect personal data from you when you purchase a place in training or a workshop, sign up to a blog, or the newsletter. This usually includes personal data, such as name, email address, the state you live in and personal account preferences; and transactional data, such as purchase information; and may include technical data, such as information about cookies. We collect information from you in order to send you relevant information.

If you attend a workshop we ask you to fill out a (usually printed) form, which will include information about your health. We use this to make sure we meet your needs and maintain those records (usually in hard copy) so we can continue to do so in future.

We will never sell that information on or intentionally use it for anything other than this purpose. You can always update your preferences to change the amount of correspondence you receive from us, or get in touch by phone or email to discuss with us.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

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.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Your rights through doing Yoga for Pain Practitioner Training and/or being listed on the practitioner register

Yoga for Pain Practitioner Training is not an accreditation. The training doesn’t entitle you to anything, but rather invites you into a community of practice examining the role of yoga in pain care, and the best way to improve lives of people affected.  By agreeing to be listed you agree to abide by the requirements of practice which are outlined in the training, in the members area, and at time to time through other forms of communication.

Your rights accessing the Yoga for Pain Practitioner Register

If you are looking for a yoga teacher or health practitioner who can help you with yoga and pain, remember that Yoga for Pain Training is not an accreditation and the Yoga for Pain Practitioner Register does not guarantee any result. You must always do your own research to find a teacher or health professional who suits you and should seek medical advice for any concerns.

Practitioners work independently. While they are required to uphold certain ethics, they are not employed by us. As such, your relationship is with the provider and not with Yoga for Pain Care Australia.
