Full Privacy Policy  (Privacy Policy Summary)

1. THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

When you use the Website, we receive and collect certain information about you. The information that we receive and collect depends on what you do when you visit this Website.
 

Information You Actively Submit

For most of the browsing on our Website, we neither require nor collect “User Information.” User Information is information that could personally identify you, for example, your name, e-mail address, billing address, shipping address(es), telephone/fax number(s), credit card information, photographs, questions, and any other personally identifying information you choose to submit to the Website. You can browse the Website and take as much time as you want to review our services without having to submit any User Information.

In the following instance, however, we do need you to actively submit User Information – whenever you want to contact Canyon Ranch via electronic means or website submission forms. We collect any User Information you submit via various webpage submission forms including, but not limited to, when you sign up for e-mail offerings, use our online Contact Us form, use our forward webpage to a friend feature, use our Reserve a Speaker form, apply for a job with us, purchase products or services online, and submit any online question submission forms. 
 

E-mail Communications

When you send an e-mail to us, you are communicating with us electronically and consent to receive communication from us electronically. We may retain the content of the e-mail, your e-mail address, and our response in order to service your needs and requests. We may use the data that you provide to send you e-mail and for other business purposes, including marketing communications about our products or services that we believe you may find of interest. 

If you no longer wish to receive marketing e-mail from Canyon Ranch or the Website, you may unsubscribe by doing any one of the following actions:

a. Send an e-mail with your current information to: healthyliving@canyonranch.com; or 

b. Send a request in writing with your current information to: Canyon Ranch, Attn: General Counsel, 8600 East Rockcliff Road, Tucson, Arizona 85750.

If you send an e-mail or letter request, please be sure to include your full name, address, phone number and e-mail address. This will ensure we identify you correctly in our systems and accurately process your request. Please note that opting out of e-mail communications may not opt you out of receiving other hard copy information.

Canyon Ranch will take appropriate steps to implement your request to opt-out of receiving marketing communications. Please note that due to production, mailing and system timelines, in order to remove you from our marketing lists, it may take up to 10 business days for e-mails. Until that change takes effect, you may still receive marketing communications from us.

Also, please note that even though you may have opted out of receiving marketing communications, you may still receive business-related communications. Please be aware that opting-out of certain third party use may prevent us from providing certain services or products that you request.
 

Personal Medical Information

We do not require you to provide any personal medical information about yourself to us online, and we ask that you do not share personal medical information that you wish to keep confidential. Information you provide is not protected under confidentiality laws that protect physician-patient communications. Please carefully select what you choose to disclose.

Personal medical information that Canyon Ranch receives in any manner is subject to our separate privacy practices regarding protected health information. Our statement regarding the treatment of such information is incorporated in this Privacy Policy and can be read by clicking here: HIPAA POLICY.
 

Automatically Collected Information

In addition to any User Information that you choose to submit, some non-personally identifying information is automatically received and sometimes collected from you when you visit the Website. This information may include some or all of the following items: the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet, including the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using and the IP address of your Internet Service Provider; the type and version of Internet browser software you use and your operating system; the date and time you access our site, the length of your stay and the specific pages, images, video or forms that you access while visiting the site; the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our website, and if applicable, the search engine that referred you and any search strings or phrases that you entered into the search engine to find this site; and demographic information concerning the country of origin of your computer and the language(s) used by it.

This information does not identify you personally, and we do not combine this information with any Personal Information that you may voluntarily and actively submit to us.  We will not use this information to identify you individually, unless we must do so to investigate and/or remedy an issue of Website security, or if we are required to do so for other law enforcement purposes.

Instead, we use this information in the aggregate (combined with similar information collected from our other Website visitors) to help us analyze, maintain, and improve the Website, to monitor the usage of our Website, assess its performance, ensure technological compatibility with your computer, and understand the relative importance of the information provided on our Website. We may also use this data to conduct statistical analyses on visitors’ usage patterns, trends and other aggregated data.
 

Information Collected via Cookies

“Cookies” are small text files that are placed in your browser (i.e. Internet Explorer) by a web server. Cookies can be read by the web server in the domain that placed them and serve to distinguish one web browser from another.  The use of cookies is a standard practice among websites for authentication and to collect or track information about your activities while using the website.  A cookie may enable the website holder to track how a visitor navigates through its website and the areas in which they show interest. This is similar to a traffic report: it tracks trends and behaviors, but does not identify individuals. Information gathered may include date and time of visits, pages viewed, time spent at the site, and the website visited just before and just after the Website.

Most people do not know that cookies are being placed in their browsers when they visit the Website or most websites because browsers are often set to accept cookies. You can choose to have your browser warn you every time a cookie is being sent to you or you can refuse cookie placements.

Cookies can be set to expire: (1) on a specified date; (2) after a specific period of time; (3) when a transaction has been completed; or (4) when a user turns off his/her Internet browser. A cookie that is erased from memory when a visitor’s Internet browser closes is called a “session” cookie. Cookies that expire based on a time set by the Web server are called “persistent” cookies.  These cookies are saved by your browser to your computer’s hard drive.

The Website uses both session cookies and persistent cookies.  We use these cookies for analysis of the use of our Website and for marketing purposes. 
 

How to Control Cookies

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to block cookies.  Instructions for blocking cookies in your browsers are available at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/.  Please be aware that if you choose to block cookies, some advertising preferences that are dependent on cookies may not be able to be respected.

If you accept cookies, you can delete them later.  Instructions for deleting cookies in your browsers are also available at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/.  If you choose to delete cookies, any settings and preferences controlled by those cookies, including advertising preferences, will be deleted and may need to be recreated.
 

Google Analytics with Display Advertising

We use Google Analytics for analyzing the use of our Website. Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your computer to identify you as a unique user of this Website.  Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this Website, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this Website. We use the information we get from Google Analytics to improve this site and to gain a better understanding of our site visitors. Google Analytics collects the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this Website, rather than your name or other identifying information. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies on your browser.  Website visitors that don’t want their visit data reported by Google Analytics can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.  For more information on the opt-out browser add-on, see the Google Analytics Opt-Out Webpage.

In addition to Website analysis, we use Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting.  When someone visits a website that has partnered with the Google Display Network, Google stores a cookie to remember their visits. This number uniquely identifies a web browser on a specific computer, not a specific person. Browsers may be associated with a demographic category, such as gender or age range, based on the sites that were visited.  Google may also use the content of the page or website or the main topics and themes from the page as well as data from third-party companies to associate interests with a browser’s anonymous cookie, taking into account how often people visit sites of those categories, among other factors.  Google may use information that people provide to these partner websites about their gender, age, and other demographic or interest information. Google may use the websites people visit and third-party data to infer this information. For example, if the sites a person visits have a majority of female visitors (based on aggregated survey data on site visitation), we may associate the person's cookie with the female demographic category.  When you visit our Website, Google shares with us this demographic and interest reporting data that is associated with your browser.

We may also use Remarketing with Google Analytics to advertise online.  This service allows third-party vendors, including Google, to show Canyon Ranch ads on sites across the internet.  Canyon Ranch and third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together, to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on your visits to the Website.

You may opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads using the opt-outs offered by Google.  You can access more information about these options by clicking here: Google Analytics Opt-Outs.

We will not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with any User Information without your prior express consent.
 

Internet Based Advertising and Do Not Track Technology

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. In doing so, we, or these third party companies, may use cookies, pixel tags or other technologies for the purpose of tracking and collecting data about you, including demographic information, other websites you visit or your online web browsing habits and activities.  We use this information for Canyon Ranch’s own marketing purposes, including but not limited to informing, optimizing and serving ads to you online when you are browsing other websites. 

We currently use a variety of third-party services to collect and track this information.  Each service has its own policies for handling Do Not Track signals and methods for opting out of the collection of such information for these purposes.  For more information on internet based advertising, including options for opting out, the Network Advertising Initiative has created a website, which you can access by clicking here.
 

2. HOW WE USE AND SHARE USER INFORMATION

Canyon Ranch may use and share your User Information with third parties, including personally identifiable information, without limitation, in the following ways:

  • To provide you with the products or services that you have requested; in each case, we ensure that these third parties have agreed not to use or disclose your personal information except to help us provide the products or services you have requested;

  • As part of an aggregated combination of anonymous User Information of all Website users, to analyze and understand the sections, features and content of the Website that our users access and to improve the use and effectiveness of the Website
  • In response to judicial or other governmental subpoenas, warrants and court orders served on Canyon Ranch in accordance with their terms, or as otherwise required by applicable law;
  • To comply with legal, regulatory or administrative requirements of governmental authorities;

We will not:

  • Sell or rent your personally identifiable information to any third parties for any purpose
  • Share your personally identifiable information with third parties for the purpose of allowing such third parties to market their own products or services to you

We believe that, except where we are compelled by law to disclose your personally identifiable information, you should have a right to choose (opt-out) whether we disclose your personally identifiable information to a third party or use your personally identifiable information for a purpose incompatible with the purpose(s) for which it was originally provided or subsequently authorized by you. Please be aware that opting out of certain third party use may prevent us from providing certain services or products that you request.
 

Third-Party Websites

When you click on links on our Website that take you to third-party websites, you will be subject to the third parties’ privacy policies. Canyon Ranch is not responsible for the actions of any third-party websites. We encourage you to read the posted privacy statement of any and every website you visit, whether you are linking from our website or browsing on your own.

Canyon Ranch provides sponsored links to third-party websites. If you click on a sponsored link, a new window containing a third-party’s website may appear. Unless you are on the Canyon Ranch’s Website, any time that you have moved to a window, you should assume that your personal information is being collected, used and disclosed in accordance with the privacy policy of this third-party website. 

If you are unsure as to whose privacy policy applies, please contact us using the contact information provided below.
 

Social Media Plug-Ins

We use social media plug-ins (buttons) on this Website such as for Facebook, Twitter, Google +, and Pinterest.  If you click on one of these buttons, your browser connects directly to the web servers of the associated social network.  If you are registered and logged into your account(s) on the social network(s), the social network(s) will receive and may store data about your use of the webpages on our Website that you visit while logged into your social media account. When you use a social network plug-in on our Website (e.g. you press the Facebook “Like” –feature, the Twitter “Tweet this” feature, the Google plus “1+” button or “Pin” the Pinterest feature) or post a comment on the Website page, this information is directly transmitted to the associated social network(s) from your browser. Even if you are not registered with the social network or you are logged out when you visit our Website, your IP address may be transmitted to and stored by the social network.  For example, according to Facebook, your IP address is anonymously transmitted to Facebook when visiting any website that contains a "Like" button.

If you interact with our Website through a social media platform, then you may also be permitting Canyon Ranch to have access to some of the information from your social network profile (such as you name, email address, photo, gender, location, the people/sites you follow etc.).  

Each social network has its own privacy policy and rules concerning the sharing of information, including your ability to limit such sharing.  If you don’t want the social network to collect the information about you described above, or to share it with us and other third parties, you must review the privacy policy of the relevant social network and take the appropriate steps described in that policy.  In addition, you should log out of the relevant social network before you visit our Website.
 

3. ACCESS TO AND MANAGING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We believe it is important for you to be able to find out what personally identifiable information you have provided to us through our website. If you have provided us with personally identifiable information, you can contact us to request that we provide you with the personally identifiable information we have in our records about you, including a list of third parties to which we have shared or disclosed personal information as set forth in this policy. We reserve the right to limit the number of times such a request can be made and to charge you for responding to such requests if this process is misused or abused.

We know you want the personally identifiable information we have on record about you to be as complete and accurate as possible. We feel the same way. If you become aware that personally identifiable information or sensitive information you may have provided that we have in our records about you is inaccurate, incomplete, or incompatible with the purposes for which it was provided or subsequently authorized by you, please notify us using the contact information provided below.
 

4.  HOW WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards for this Website to help protect against loss, misuse or unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of the personal information you provide on this Website. Unfortunately, no transmission of data over the internet is guaranteed to be completely secure.  

E-mail or other forms of electronic communication, including website submission, are not a confidential means of communication. While Canyon Ranch attempts to prevent unauthorized access to your User Information, or other information you submit, third parties not under our control may attempt to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully. Therefore, any transmission of personal information to us is made at your own risk. If you believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please notify us using the contact details below.

You have several options when deciding how you can best protect your personally identifiable information. One option is simply not to volunteer it. As stated above, this approach would allow you to still visit our website – although it will prevent you, for example, from taking advantage of some of our Website’s features including those in the automated “Contact Us” or other submission webpage or associated e-mail address.

The Federal Trade Commission’s website, www.ftc.gov, also offers useful information about how to protect personally identifiable information provided to a website.
 

5.  PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT CHILDREN

The Website is targeted for use by adults. We do not currently market to or create special areas for use by children. Accordingly, we do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13 years. However, we hereby advise all visitors to our site under the age of 13 not to disclose or provide any personally identifiable information on our website. In the event that we discover that a child under the age of 13 has provided personally identifiable information to us, in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protect Act (see the Federal Trade Commission’s website at www.ftc.gov/protecting-your-childs-privacy-online for more information about this Act), we will delete the child’s personally identifiable information from our files to the extent technologically possible.
