Privacy Policy

We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy. We will not sell your personally identifiable information to anyone. Please read below for more details of how we gather and use your information.

Information We Collect

We may collect your name, address, email address, telephone number, and other personally identifiable information you submit in connection with the processes of setting up an account (getting a username and password) and registering for a course, program, or event. Such personally identifiable information will not be posted in areas of the site viewable by the public or authorized users of the site without your express consent. Certain portions of our site may permit user generated content. If you post content to those portions of the site, the information that you post will be available to other users.

We also collect information from you if you contact us for any purpose. The scope of the information that we collect will be based on your particular inquiry.

In addition, we automatically track certain information based upon your behavior on the Site using "cookies" and other devices.

Our Use of Your Information

Our primary goal in collecting your information, including your personally identifiable information, is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience. This allows us to provide services and features that are most likely to meet your needs, and to customize the site and our services to make your experience easier. We use personally identifiable information in the files we maintain about you, and the other personally identifiable information we obtain from your current and past activities on the site to provide you with services; resolve disputes; troubleshoot problems; enforce the Terms of Use; identify multiple usernames, ID numbers, or aliases; analyze usage of the site; improve our content and product offerings; customize content, layout, and offerings on the site; to respond to your inquiries, and for other customer services purposes. We also may use your information for legal purposes, to protect our rights and interests, our site, and other users of our site and services. As discussed below, we also may use your personally identifiable information to share information with you about other offerings from Luminous Awareness Institute.

Accessing and Changing Your Personally Identifiable Information

After setting up an account (creating a username and password) you can review and change specific information you submitted during the process of setting up the account or registering for a course, including your password, email address, name, address, city, state, zip code, country, and phone number by signing into your account through our Login page (where you can also reset your password if needed). Once logged in, you can visit your Profile page to update your information including going to your Billing Account details.

If you would like to request a change to other information regarding your account or your participation in Luminous Awareness Institute's programs, you may contact us at

Retention of Data

We will retain in our files and databases personally identifiable information for as long as necessary for our business purposes, such as to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, as required by law, or to enforce the Terms of Use or this Privacy Policy.

Links from our Site

This Privacy Policy does not apply to any personally identifiable information that you may provide to third parties, such as through other sites linked to this site. Please be aware that if you choose to visit such third party sites, you should contact such third parties directly to determine their respective privacy policies because that third party's privacy policy, and not Luminous Awareness Institute, will govern your activities and any personally identifiable information you disclose while visiting the third party site.

Security Policy

Your payment and personal information is always safe. Our Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software is the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure commerce transaction. It encrypts all of your personal information including credit card number, name and address, so that it cannot be read over the internet.

However, you agree and acknowledge that "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet. Although we will take reasonable steps to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Site: any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information we will use reasonable procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.
