Privacy Policy


Body Flows is strongly committed to protecting the privacy of our website visitors and the people who communicate with us.  This Privacy Policy seeks to help you understand (i) how we collect and use your information; (ii) how we share and protect your information; (iii) your choices regarding our use of such information; and (iv) your ability to access and correct your information.

This Privacy Policy applies when you visit this website or share your personally identifiable information with us, as discussed below.  By using the website, you accept this Privacy Policy, which may be updated by us at any time.  If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy for any reason, please do not use this website or share your personally identifiable information with us as discussed below.  Please note that this Privacy Policy applies only to this website and not to any other website linked to it.  Body Flows does not control the privacy policies or practices of others. We encourage you to ask questions and read the privacy policies of other websites before you disclose any personal information to them.

If you have any question or comments about this Privacy Policy, please contact us on our web form..


Body Flows collects personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information from you in a number of ways.  Personally Identifiable Information is information that personally identifies you, such as your name, postal address, email address, or credit card information (or other information that is associated by us with such above information), and Non-Personally Identifiable Information is information that does not personally identify you, including anonymous information and aggregate data.  We use this information to understand better how our viewers use our website, research our viewers' demographics, interests, and behaviors, provide visitors with customized services and information for other similar purposes.

We use Google Analytics to analyze how visitors use our website and watch videos embedded within the site.  The information collected, including your browser and operating system, IP address, pages visited on our website, and time spent here, is transmitted to and stored by Google Analytics.  These sites use this information to evaluate visitors' use of this website in an aggregate manner, compile reports on website activity and provide other related services.

In addition, we may use your personally identifiable information to contact you and send you information and/or marketing and promotional materials, including through postal mail, email, and other means, as well as to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, and to analyze website use, improve our content and product offerings and customize our website content, layout, and services.


In general, we automatically gather certain information from our website visitors, such as the number and frequency of your visits. This information may include the URL of the last and next website you visit, your browser and operating system, your IP address, how long you spend on our website and what pages you view here. We also collect information through the methods listed below. We and our authorized designees collect information through the servers for this website, cookies, and other technologies. Cookies are small files placed on your hard drive; each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser preferences allow it. You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. Each browser is different, so check the Help menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

You are free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although that may prevent you from using certain features on our website, and you may be required to re-enter your password more frequently during a session. In addition, a number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit websites anonymously. We use a “persistent” cookie to save information about your operating system and technology preferences and track website usage; in addition, if you sign up for a user account, we will save your account user ID and / or email address.  We also use a “session cookie” to help us “remember” you until the session times out, or the closing of your browser which helps ensure that you remain logged into your account. Session cookies are automatically deleted from your hard drive after the end of a session.

Usually, the information collected through cookies and other technologies is not personally identifiable information in and of itself. However, these technological methods may enable us to collect and use information in a personally identifiable form, in which case we will treat the resulting information as personal information. We are not responsible for any other websites accessible from or linked to this website, including their privacy policies or information collection practices. Further, we do not control any cookies, web beacons or other similar devices placed on our website by third-parties, such as those that may be embedded in third-party advertising.

We may use third-party advertising networks to deliver some of the advertisements that are placed on our website and within our videos. These advertising networks may use cookies, web beacons, or other technological methods to collect information about your visits to our website in order to provide you with customized advertisements.

If Body Flows merges with or is acquired by another business entity, Body Flows has the right to share your personally identifiable information with that entity. You will receive notice of such event, and we will request that the new entity follow the practices disclosed in this Privacy Policy or notify you of any changes to it.

We will not otherwise share your personally identifiable information other than as noted above, except as required by law, requested by governmental entity or law enforcement authority, subpoena, court order, or discovery request, or when we otherwise believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary or appropriate in connection with any activity that violates the law (including relating to intellectual property, fraud, contracts and privacy) or may expose us to liability. We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any of your information in such circumstances.


The security of your information is important to us. Body Flows employs several different technical, administrative, and physical security measures to protect your personally identifiable information from unauthorized access or use.

You should be aware, however, that perfect security does not exist on the Internet, and there is always the risk that unauthorized persons may access or use your personally identifiable information. You use our website and send us such information at your own risk.
