Yoga Australia is subject to the requirements of applicable Australian law and strives to meet the requirements of the Australian National Principles for the Fair Handling of Personal Information. 

Your Information and Your Right To Privacy 

Unless you specifically tell us, this site will never know who you are (applies to Yoga Australia members only).

This is your choice. 

Yoga Australia will under no circumstances sell, trade or rent any personal information that you supply to us to any third party. In short, information you supply to Yoga Australia stays with Yoga Australia. You have the right to review and alter any personal membership information that Yoga Australia stores about you. After all, it is your information, so you should be the person that controls it. 

If you choose and inform us accordingly, Yoga Australia will not send you unsolicited email, that is, make you part of a Yoga Australia mailing list. Yoga Australia uses this method to communicate quickly with members. You have the right to refuse inclusion on a mailing list. Members can make a request to remove their email address from a mailing list by contacting the Yoga Australia office.
