Privacy & Cookies Policy – v. 1.2 25/05/2018 (GDPR Compliant)

Overview – Privacy Policy Consent

Welcome to www.satihouse.ch (“Website”), I hope you are enjoying it. Please read the Privacy and Cookies Policy before purchasing, accessing, enrolling or using any of my Coaching Sessions, Mindfulness Practices, Online Programs, Blog, as well as the content of the Secret Library and in the Top Secret Library (collectively as “Services”). The term “You” refers to the user/client or viewer of www.satihouse.ch website. Definitely You reading this most interesting document. 

The Website and its content is owned by SatiHouse by Samantha Aeschbach (“Company”, “I”, “me”, we”, or “us” /with its offices at Lureiweg 3, 8008 Zurich, Switzerland).

This Privacy Policy describes how I collect, use, process and distribute your information, including Personal Data (as defined below) used to access this Website. I will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy. The use of information collected through theWebsite shall be limited to the purposes under this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use to customers.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. I reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy on the Website at any time without notice. In the event of a material change, I will let You know via email and/or a prominent notice on the Website.

Use of any personal information or contribution that You provide to me, or which is collected by me on or through the Website or its content, is governed by this Privacy Policy. By using the Website or its content, You consent to this Privacy Policy, whether or not You have read it. If you want to waste some time, please go ahead and read through this standard legal jargon. But, rest assured that I strictly adhere to maintain the Personal Data that you shared with me, safe and secure. I will never willingly misuse the trust you have placed in me.

Definition of “Personal Data”

When I refer to ‘Personal Data’ I mean any information that allows me to identify You personally. Obvious examples include your name, email address, postal address etc. I will always seek to gain your explicit consent to providing this information before I collect it from You, although this may not be the only legal basis on which I collect the data.

Other types of information, such as your computer’s ‘IP’ address or broad geographical location do not, generally, allow me to identify You directly. However, because in their current form, European data privacy regulations are somewhat vague in this regard, I will cover the use of such data here also.

I collect personal information from You so that I can provide You with a positive experience when utilizing the Website or content. I will only collect the minimum amount of information necessary for me to fulfill my obligation to You. I may collect:

  • Information (e.g name and email address) that You provide to me directly so I can deliver emails to You – You would be affirmatively consenting to this by providing this to me in the contact forms, message via the Website, subscription to the Newsletter, or any other part of the Website that needs to be accessed by subscribing. 
  • Billing information including name, address and credit card information so that I can process payment to deliver the products or Services to You under the contractual obligation. I only use third party payment processors that take the outmost care in securing data and comply with the GDPR.
  • A name, an email address or any other provided data, if You complete the contact form with a question. I may send You marketing emails with either your consent or if I believe I have a legitimate interest to contact You based on your contact or question.
  • Information from You from a co-branded offer. In this case, I will make clear as to who is collecting the information and whose privacy policy applies. If both/all parties are retaining the information You provide, this will also be made clear as will links to all privacy policies.
  • Information that is automatically sent to me by Your computer’s internet browser when You visit the Website, such as your computer’s technical address (or ‘IP address’) or information about which particular internet browser You are using and so on.
  • Information about how You use the Website or the services, such as which pages You visit, how frequently You visit the site and so forth.

Anonymous Data Collection and Use

To maintain the Website’s high quality, I may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with the server and to administer the Website by identifying which areas of the Website are most heavily used, and to display content according to your preferences. Your IP address is the number assigned to computers connected to the Internet. This is essentially “traffic data” which cannot personally identify you, but is helpful to me for marketing purposes and for improving the services. Traffic data collection does not follow a user’s activities on any other Websites in any way. Anonymous traffic data may also be shared with business partners and advertisers on an aggregate basis.

Use of “Cookies”

SatiHouse by Samantha Aeschbach uses cookies on the www.satihouse.ch Website. I wish it was the triple chocolate cookies kind, but hélas, its the Internet ones. By using the Website, You consent to the use of cookies. On the Website I make You aware of this with a notification. Cookies are small pieces of text sent by your web browser by a website You visit. A cookie file is stored in your web browser and allows the Website or a third­-party to recognize You and make your next visit easier and the Website more useful to You. Cookies can be “persistent” or “session” cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your personal computer or mobile device when You go offline, while session cookies are deleted as soon as You close your web browser. I now really wish for “persistent” chocolate cookies… you know, the ones that beg to be eaten. 

When You use and access the Website, I may place a number of cookies files in your web browser. I use cookies for the following purposes: to enable certain functions of the Website, to provide analytics, to store your preferences, to enable advertisements delivery, including behavioral advertising. I use both session and persistent cookies on the Website and I use different types of cookies to run it. I may use essential cookies to authenticate users and prevent fraudulent use of user accounts. I may use the standard “cookies” feature of major web browsers. I do not set any personally identifiable information in cookies, nor do I employ any data-capture mechanisms on the Website other than cookies. 

You may choose to disable or delete cookies through your own web browser’s settings:

However, disabling this function or deleting the cookies may diminish your experience on the Website: some features may not work as intended and some pages might not display properly. Is it wishful thinking, that I can “delete” the box of oatmeal cookies I just ate, while writing this?

I have no access to or control over any information collected by other individuals, companies or entities whose website or materials may be linked to the Website or its Content.

You can find out more information about cookies on the following third-party websites: AllAboutCookies at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/ 

How I Share what I Collect

I use information about You to: (i) present the sites content effectively to You and contact You via email; (ii) provide information, products and Services that You request, or (with your consent) which I think may interest You; (iii) carry out the contracts with You; (iv) tell You about changes to the service; (v) process payments with the merchant accounts, (vi) run advertisements with Google/social media accounts and (vii) tell You about other goods and Services that might interest You. I will also let selected third parties do this, and I (or they) may contact You about these.

I operate on a strict ‘need to know’ basis for all data that I work with, and that is particularly true for any personal data. 

Submission, Storage, Transferring and Sharing of Personal Data

To use the Website or its Content, I may seek Personal Data including your name, e-mail address, street address, city, postal code, billing information, or other personally identifying information (“Confidential Information”), or You may offer or provide a comment, photo, image, video or any other submission to me when visiting or interacting with the Website and its Content (“Other Information”). By providing such Confidential Information or Other Information to me, You grant me permission to use and store such information.

Your Confidential Information is stored through by me internally or through a data management system. Your Confidential Information will only be accessed by those who help to obtain, manage or store that Information, or who have a legitimate need to know such Confidential Information (i.e., the hosting provider, email service provider, payment processors or team members).

It is important to note that I may transfer data internally. For users in the EU, please be aware that I might transfer Personal Data outside the EU. By using the Website and providing me with your Personal Data, You consent to these transfers in accordance with this Privacy Policy. 

There may be an occasion where I may ask for demographic information such as gender or age, but if You choose not to provide such data and information, You may still use the Website and its Content, but You may not be able to use those Services where demographic information may be required.

Confidentiality Commitment 

I am fully committed to maintaining the privacy of any information (Personal Data) that You provide to me. Furthermore, I commit to ensuring that such data is held securely, used appropriately and only retained for as long as is necessary.

The systems and Services are designed with privacy in mind, and I operate a ‘data minimization’ principle wherever possible – that is to say that I will only ever ask you for the minimum amount of information required to provide the Services efficiently; I have no desire to retain (and therefore maintain) any more information than is necessary. I may include certain Personal Data for longer periods of time if necessary for legal, contractual and accounting obligations. 

I aspire to comply to the fullest extent possible with applicable data protection regulations, in particular the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) and ePrivacy Directive, where applicable.

Please note that I may disclose such Confidential Information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that: (1) such action is necessary to protect and defend the rights or property or those of our users or licensees, (2) to act as immediately necessary in order to protect the personal safety or rights of our users or the public, or (3) to investigate or respond to any real or perceived violation of this Privacy Policy or of the Disclaimer, Terms and Conditions, or any other terms of use or agreement with me.

To help protect against unauthorized or improper use, make sure that You log out at the end of each session requiring your username and password.

It is your responsibility to protect your own username and password from disclosure to others. I cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to protect your username, password or account information.

If You enter a bogus email address I have the right to immediately inactivate your account. I will use the best efforts to keep your username and password(s) private and will not otherwise share your password(s) without your consent, except as necessary when the law requires it or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary, particularly when disclosure is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to others or interfering with my rights or property.
