Privacy and Security

Heron Creek Yoga & Fitness takes the issue of security and privacy seriously. We respect our customers' rights to both their privacy and security of their data. To that end, we collect, protect and use information either obtained through out our website or in person at the studio only as disclosed below.

Personally Identifiable Information

Heron Creek Yoga & Fitness collects personally identifiable information from you only with your knowledge and consent. We use the services of MindBody Online ( and Moneris Solutions ( for scheduling, registration, order processing and online and in-person payments. We use Constant Contact for newsletters and other emails. Please visit their websites to learn about the companies and their Privacy Policies.

When you make a purchase through MindBody Online, they ask for your name, address, phone number, email address and other personal information necessary to fulfill and track your order. For purposes of billing, you have the choice of using credit cards or pre-authorized debit. For credit cards, you must provide your credit card number, expiration date and email address. For debit cards you must provide your bank account number, bank ID and branch number. Heron Creek does not store credit card or bank account numbers. These are stored with the merchant bank that processes the charges. We only know the last 4 digits.

MindBody requires you to create an account by providing your email address and designating a unique access password for future access to your account information. Creating this account allows MindBody to save your billing information so you won’t have to fill out that information again the next time you make a purchase on their site. Your account allows MindBody to keep track of your class attendance to enforce policies regarding the use of 10- or 20-class passes. It also allows us at Heron Creek Yoga understand our revenues, class attendance and capacity, and other such business-related analysis.

Heron Creek Yoga & Fitness collects your name and email address if you sign up for our email newsletter and to inform you of important studio information such as schedule changes and upcoming events.

Heron Creek Yoga & Fitness has security cameras on the premises and records activities inside the public areas of the studio for purposes of crime prevention and in case it is required for an insurance claim. The recording space is limited and it is overwritten periodically. The amount of time recorded varies with the amount of activity recorded but is generally about one month.

Heron Creek Yoga & Fitness may on occasion record classes for purposes of demonstrating our classes either online or in the studio on the televisions on site. We will do so only with your prior consent. We do not identify class attendees in any textual material that may accompany the video.
