Thanks for choosing Setu. This is our Privacy Policy. Before getting into the details, we’d like to highlight some of the key principles behind it. These principles are important to us because we know they’re important to you.

The Privacy Policy is here to do three things:

  1. Explain the way we use information that you share with us in order to build a great product and give you a great experience with it;
  2. Ensure that you understand what information we collect with your permission, and what we do — and do not do — with it;
  3. Hold us accountable for protecting your rights and your privacy under this policy.

All the information we collect is related to providing the Setu service and its features.

Broadly speaking, there are two categories of information we collect: 1) information that we must have in order for you to use Setu; and 2) information that we can use to provide additional features and improved experiences if you choose to share that information.

The first category includes:

 

The second category includes information that enables us to offer you additional features. We never receive any of the following information unless you expressly choose to share it with us. It’s as simple as that. Here are some examples:

 

The distinction between these two categories is important. Information in the first category is information you must provide in order to use Setu. When you agree to our Privacy Policy, you give us the right to collect this information and use it for the purposes described. Information in the second category is information we will only collect if you explicitly give us permission to do so in the future. For this second category of information, we will ask for your permission before first accessing it, we will describe how we will use it if you give us permission, we will only use the information for the purpose we described, and you will always have the ability to change your mind and revoke that permission. Acceptance of our Privacy Policy does not mean you have granted us permission to access or use information in the second category; we’re just explaining to you that one day we might ask you for that permission.

We will be clear with you about how and when we might share information.

In some contexts, we will share certain information. For example, like most services, if you sign up for Setu through a third party like YouTube or a mobile provider, we share some information with them and they share some information with us in order to enable your account. And we also share de-identified information with our yoga teacher partners to help them understand how the content they license to us is performing, with marketing partners who help us with promotional efforts, and with advertisers that allow us to offer a free service. There also may be times when you want us to share information. Similarly, you can ask us to share information (like your email address) with yoga teachers or studio, or other partners who may want to directly send you news or promotional offers, but you can also revoke that permission at any time.

Throughout this Privacy Policy we refer to the Setu Service or the Service. These terms are defined in our Terms and Conditions of Use (the “Terms and Conditions of Use”).
