Information of a Non-Personal Nature
As a general policy, with the exception of IP addresses, no personal information is automatically collected from visitors to the Shambhala website. Shambhala does gather and analyse IP addresses and certain information of a non-personal nature regarding website usage by visitors to our website (also known as “clickstream data”). Such information can include the date and time of the visit to our website, the pages accessed and documents downloaded, the previous website visited or the next website you visit after ours, and the type of browser used to access our website. Such data is used in an aggregate form to assist us in determining general usage patterns and to administer, diagnose problems with, and fine tune the layout of our website. We may share non-personal, summary, or aggregate visitor data with partners and other third parties at our discretion.
Shambhala uses ‘cookies’ to store and sometimes track information about your use of our website. A cookie is a small file that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer. In addition to improving the general layout of the website, cookies allow us to customize our website to each visitor’s individual preferences, as well as keep track of the ordering of products or services from our website. Although most web browsers automatically accept cookies, you can usually change your browser to prevent you from receiving cookies or to notify you whenever you are sent a cookie so that you may decide whether or not to accept it. You are free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although you may be required to re-enter your password more frequently and may not be able to use certain features or access certain products and services on our website if you do.
Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
Shambhala only collects personal information from visitors who voluntarily and knowingly provide us with such information. While you are not required to provide us with personal information in order to access our website, some features of the website, as well as the products and services on our website, may not be accessible to all visitors without some form of registration and disclosure of personal information.
We will not give, sell, rent, or loan any of your personal information to any unrelated third party (with the exception of third parties performing functions on our behalf who have an obligation to keep your information completely confidential or a third party who acquires our business) unless you have authorized us to do so.
Shambhala reserves the right to access and/or disclose personal information where required to comply with applicable laws or lawful government requests or, in our reasonable opinion, to operate our website properly and securely, or to protect Shambhala or other visitors to this website. To the extent reasonably possible in our sole opinion, we shall attempt to obtain the prior consent of the individual to whom such personal information relates prior to disclosure to third parties.
