This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Great Lakes Mindfulness to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area. 


Automatically Collected Information

Information about your computer hardware and software may be automatically collected by Great Lakes Mindfulness. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times, and referring website addresses. This information is used for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding the use of our website. 


Use of Cookies

Our website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer.  Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.


One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save your time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize pages, or register with our services, a cookie helps us to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, and so on. When you return to the same website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use our features which you have customized. 


You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of our website. 


Links

This website may contain links to other sites. These links are not an endorsement, authorization, or representation that we are affiliated with that third party. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site, and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information. 


Security of your Personal Information

Great Lakes Mindfulness secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure using SSL Protocol and McAfee Secure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.


We strive to take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or alteration of your personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, you acknowledge while using this website that (a) there are security and privacy limitations inherent to the Internet, which are beyond our control; and (b) security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this website cannot be guaranteed.

If you choose to use our website or services (that are transferable to locations outside of Michigan) from other countries, please note that we may transfer your information outside of those regions to the United States for storage and processing.

If we become aware that a child under the age of sixteen has provided us with personal information, we will take steps to delete such information. If you are under the age of sixteen, you must ask your parent or guardian for permission to use this website. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with information without their consent, he or she should contact us at 734-714-8800.
