Pocket Buddha respects your privacy. We do not collect personally identifiable information about you unless you voluntarily provide it, such as when you provide email contact information to subscribe to the Pocket Buddha email list newsletter, send feedback to Pocket Buddha, register for one of Pocket Buddha’s courses or respond to a survey. If you voluntarily provide your email address or other contact information, we might also use it to inform you of changes to Pocket Buddha, to survey you about your use or opinion of Pocket Buddha, or to ask for your support. At your request, we will remove your contact information from our files.

We do not make your contact information or any other personally identifiable information available to anyone outside Pocket Buddha or its service providers (who use the information only for authorized Pocket Buddha purposes) unless we are legally required to do so.

In addition to the above, we collect certain anonymous (non-personally identifiable) information to help us improve the Pocket Buddha web site and to evaluate the access and use of Pocket Buddha materials and the impact of Pocket Buddha on the worldwide educational community:

We collect information you provide about your use of and satisfaction with Pocket Buddha through email you send us, through the Pocket Buddha feedback form, and through Pocket Buddha surveys, whether or not you voluntarily include your contact information.

We may use web analysis tools that are built into the Pocket Buddha web site to measure and collect anonymous session information.

We also use “cookies” to improve your Pocket Buddha web experience and to collect anonymous information about how you use Pocket Buddha. However, cookies are not required for Pocket Buddha use. If your browser is configured not to accept cookies, you will still be able to access Pocket Buddha and its content.

When we report information about Pocket Buddha access, use, and impact, we report aggregate, non-personally identifiable data. Occasionally, we report quoted feedback from users. We do not attribute feedback to specific individuals unless we obtain permission to use that person’s name along with the feedback.
