  1. Business Affiliates

Compassionate Inquiry reserves the right to transfer, sell or distribute all information collected through the Website and/or Course Participant Account(s) to an affiliate, subsidiary, or third party in the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or part of our business, assets or stock.

We will use our best efforts to ensure that the new entity follows this Privacy Policy with respect to your Personal Information and to the extent required by applicable law.

 

  1. Updating and Deleting your Data

Your information can be updated through the Website and/or your Course Participant Account profile. Alternatively, you may submit a request in writing to [email protected] to update your information. In the same manner, you may also delete your Course Participant Account. Deleting your Course Participant Account will result in the erasure of all Personal Information and data.

Generally, Personal Information and data will only be retained so long as a Course Participant is enrolled in a Compassionate Inquiry Course, unless specifically requested otherwise. We will, however, retain your login credentials indefinitely, in case you wish to reactivate your Course Participant Account.
