Personal Information Collected
In general, when you visit our Web sites and access information you remain anonymous. We do not require you to register or provide personal information to us to view our site. There are occasions when we will ask for additional information. We do this to better understand and respond to your needs, and provide you with services that may be valuable to you. For example, personally identifiable information will be collected in order for you to purchase products or register for classes.
Use of Information
Personally identifiable information is not made available to other non-profit organizations or to for-profit organizations unless you request otherwise. We will not provide any of your personal information to other organizations.

Links to Third Party Sites
We provide links to third party sites. Since we do not control those Web sites, we encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on these third party sites.
What are “Cookies”? “Cookies” are small files sent from a Web server to your computer through your browser program. There are two types of cookies: non-persistent and persistent cookies.
A non-persistent cookie enables a Web site to temporarily keep information on your computer as you travel from one page to another on our site. This cookie is automatically deleted from your machine when you close your browser. Because these cookies are necessary to provide some functions, failure to allow such cookies may make some of the functions on our Web site unavailable to you.
A persistent cookie is kept even when you close your browser. You can manually delete these cookies using commands specific to your browser and computer system. These cookies store information that would generally not change from session to session. They also contain information that would need to be reentered by you each time you visit the Web site. For example, a common use of persistent cookies is to allow a registered site visitor to enter the site without having to specify their user-id and password.
The security of your personal information is very important to us, and we
are committed to protecting the information we collect. While we cannot
guarantee absolute security of your personal information, www.sacredstream.org uses state-of-the-art technology
to keep your personal information—including your billing and account
information—as secure as possible.
