We and our third-party service providers set and use cookies and similar technologies to store and manage user preferences, enable content, gather analytic and usage data, and deliver targeted advertising. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on a computer or other device and is used to identify the device and to collect information. Cookies are typically assigned to one of the following categories, depending on their function and intended purpose:

• Essential cookies enable you to navigate our website and to use our services and features. Without these cookies, our website will not perform as smoothly for you as we would like, and we may not be able to provide certain core functions and features.

• Analytics cookies collect information about the use of our website and enable us to improve the way it works. For example, analytics cookies show us the most frequently visited pages and analyze site traffic. We use them to look at overall patterns of usage on the site, rather than the usage of any particular individual.

• We use third-party service providers, including Google Analytics, to analyze the use of our website. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit a website, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with your personal information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit a website, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to client websites is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can opt-out of the use of web analysis at any time by either downloading and installing a Browser Plugin offered by Google or by configuring your browser to delete and reject cookies.

• Social Media cookies collect information about your visit to our site, but only when you are logged in to your social media account and are only stored for up to 7 days.

• Marketing cookies track browsing habits and are used to deliver targeted (interest-based) advertising. You can opt out of receiving interest-based ads.

Most browsers are set up to accept cookies automatically. You can deactivate the storing of cookies or adjust your browser to inform you before the cookie is stored on your computer.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Where required by the Consumer Privacy Act we will only collect and process personal information about you where we have a legal basis. Examples of legal bases include consent (where you have given consent), contract (where processing is necessary for entering into or the performance of a contract with you), and “legitimate interests”.

Where we process personal information based on consent, we will ask for your consent. You may withdraw your consent at any time, but that will not affect the lawfulness of the processing of your personal information prior to such withdrawal. Where we rely on contract, we will ask that you agree to the processing of personal information that is necessary for entering into or the performance of your contract with us, and we will inform you whether the provision of your personal data is mandatory and of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information.

We may process your personal information for the purposes of our legitimate interests, provided that such processing does not outweigh your rights and freedoms. Where we rely on legitimate interests, you have the right to object. We process your personal information based on legitimate interests in order to:

• Market our products and services;
• Protect you, us, or others from data security threats;
• Comply with laws that apply to us; and
• Enable or administer our business, such as for invoicing customers.

Social Media

We use social media accounts (Instagram, Tiktok, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube) to engage with the public. Our social media accounts are produced and maintained by our internal Marketing Team sometimes working with service providers. Through our social media engagement, we are able to build online awareness about our company and our services, respond to messages through the comment, message, or chat functions, collect aggregated information about interactions with our content on or through social media, and analyze trends. When you engage with us through our social media channels, the platform providers will also process information about you. For further information, please consult the privacy policy of the platform provider.

Your Communication Preferences

If you wish to opt-out of receiving marketing communications from us, please email us: contact@lovingheartretreats.com. Although you may opt-out of the use of your information for marketing purposes, we may still use your information for non-marketing purposes.

Children’s Online Privacy

The Website is intended for a general adult audience and is not intended for children under 18 years of age. Loving Heart Retreats do not intentionally collect any personal information from any child under the age of 13 and if we discover we have been provided with any such information, Loving Heart Retreats will promptly dispose of the information. This includes children in the state of California under the age of 13 protected under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). Loving Heart Retreats encourages parents and guardians to closely monitor children’s online activities.

Our site may contain links or references to third party websites. These websites are outside of our control, and the privacy policies of these sites may differ from our own. Please be aware that we have no control over these third-party websites and our Privacy Policy does not apply to such websites. We encourage you to check the terms of use and privacy policies of such websites before disclosing any personal information via such websites.

Occasionally when linking to a third-party website from our website, you may still see the Loving Heart Retreats logo or website frame. This is to provide you with a seamless experience when visiting our affiliate sites. In these cases, you are no longer on our website but the third-party website, and therefore the information collection practices of the third party’s website may differ from Loving Heart Retreats. The privacy notice of the third-party website will govern how information collected from you is used by the owner of the website. You can always know what website you are on by checking the Uniform Resource Locater (URL) in the location bar within your browser.

We understand the importance of safeguarding the personal information we collect from you. We therefore take reasonable measures to protect your personal information that is under our control in an effort to prevent its loss, misuse or unauthorized access, alteration or disclosure, including established electronic and administrative safeguards designed to make the information we collect secure. You should take care not to send us personal information in email, which is inherently an insecure form of communication.

Although we strive to keep your information secure, no policy or system can perfectly safe guard against the risk of intentional intrusion or inadvertent disclosure and we do not and cannot guarantee that your information may never be disclosed in a manner inconsistent with this policy and applicable laws. Any personal information you provide us is at your own risk. You should understand the limits to privacy and security on the Internet and use common sense in all your online activities.

Changes to this Privacy Statement

This Privacy Statement may be updated periodically and will be posted on the website, indicating when it was last updated. If there are material changes to our Privacy Statement, we will post a prominent notice on our website and/or provide other notice as required by law.
