What Information We Collect, And How We Use It
For Shambhala Sun and Buddhadharma print subscribers: We maintain a database of the name and address information you provide us at the time you subscribe, renew, or change your address. We may use this information to: contact you about your subscription and your account status, advise you of any changes or additions to our service, and inform you of special offers from Shambhala Sun and Buddhadharma.
On occasion we make our subscribers' names and mailing addresses available to select organizations whose products or services we feel will be of interest to our subscribers. If you would prefer that your name and mailing address not be used in this way, please contact us at our address shown below.
Email addresses are not made available to third party organizations. We will use your email address only in our communications with you.
