GENERAL STATEMENT ON PRIVACY, PERSONAL DATA, AND COMMUNICATIONS
If you use the Website or the App, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account, password, and for restricting access to your computer or device. You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account and password.
When you visit the Website, use the App, or communicate with Studio Three via email, you are communicating electronically. You consent to receive communications from Studio Three electronically. Studio Three will communicate with you by email or by posting notifications on the Website and/or the App. You understand and agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that Studio Three provides electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
USER PROVIDED INFORMATION
Studio Three does not collect any personal information about individuals – such as names and postal codes, home addresses, and email addresses – except when such information is knowingly provided to Studio Three. Personal information might be obtained from online transactions such as class/membership purchases, retail purchases, and/or class registrations. Additionally, personal information may be transmitted as part of a form submission or in connection with other activities or services made available on the Website or App. Any personal identification information retrieved by Studio Three must be voluntarily submitted by the user.
Studio Three may use the information provided to contact you with important information, required notices, and marketing promotions.
AUTOMATICALLY COLLECTED INFORMATION
The Website and App collect some anonymous information about users automatically when individuals request pages through a browser. This information is used to keep track of the shopping cart and to help us monitor how individuals use the Website and App, which allows Studio Three to provide an optimal experience and better service throughout the online offerings. The information collected automatically by the server does not contain anything that can identify individuals personally, such as an email or home address.
Studio Three makes every effort to ensure that all of the transactions that occur on the Website and App are secure. All credit card numbers and transactions are encrypted using 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. We are concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. We provide physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect information we process and maintain. For example, we limit access to this information to authorized employees and contractors who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve the Website and App. Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.
WHAT IS A SECURE CONNECTION?
When a secure connection is established between your browser and a website, any data that is transferred over the connection will be encrypted to prevent it from being viewed by a third party. SSL encryption makes it very difficult for anyone to intercept or decode messages exchanged over this type of secure connection.
Browsers such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari display an image of a locked padlock on their status bar when connected to a secure site. Google Chrome shows a green locked padlock on the far left side of the status bar when there is a secure SSL connection. Firefox colors the address bar yellow when connected to a secure site. Secure transactions are also indicated when the prefix in the location bar of your browser switches from // or //. The additional ‘s’ stands for ‘secure’ and indicates a secure connection to the Studio Three website. If you do not see this padlock, if it is unlocked, or if the protocol in the location bar is not listed as //, then any data exchanged with the website is potentially visible to others.
Depending on your browser, you may be able to view authentication information about a secure page by double-clicking on the padlock icon in the status bar. For more information on how your software establishes a secure connection, see the help files for your particular browser.
A cookie is a small text file that is sent to your browser from a website and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies cannot read data from your hard disk or read cookie files that were created by other sites – the website that creates a cookie is the only one a browser will permit to access it.
HOW INFORMATION IS USED

* If you indicate that you are interested in receiving Studio Three related news and information, you may receive emails to the email address you provided as part of the registration process.
For the non-personally identifiable information collected throughout the Website or App:
* Aggregate data could be analyzed to describe the collective characteristics and behaviors of online visitors, and subsequently be used to further optimize the effectiveness of the website, the mobile application, and the overall Studio Three experience.

Example: If you cancel a class on Friday evening for Saturday morning, we ask that you do not attend until at least Tuesday.
All late cancellations and no-shows will be charged to your account. Unlimited Membership holders will be assessed a fee of $15 per incidence for any late cancellation and $25 for no-shows. Package holders will be assessed a $15 fee for no-shows, including the loss of the class session.

LATE ARRIVALS: For safety reasons and to ensure everyone is properly warmed up, please be on time for class. Any vacancies may be given to waitlist participants 5 minutes before the session begins. For everyone’s safety, there will be no access to classes once they have started.
WAITLIST POLICY: If you are unable to get in a class you desire because it is fully booked, we highly recommend putting yourself on the waitlist. You must purchase or have an active class package or membership before you can reserve a spot on the waitlist. If you don’t receive a spot in your desired class, a class credit will remain in your account for use on future classes; the cost of the class is not refundable.
If a spot becomes available for which you have been waitlisted before the reservation window closes (1 hour before class), you will automatically be enrolled. You will receive an email confirming your enrollment into the class from the waitlist. If you are no longer interested in a class for which you are on the waitlist, you must remove yourself from the waitlist (online or by calling the studio and speaking with someone live) or you risk being charged whether or not you attend.
If a spot that you have been waitlisted for opens within the 1 hour window before class, we will email and/or call you and all other waitlisted clients to inform you of the available spot. We will not enroll anyone until we speak with someone directly.
We do not offer the option of swapping classes. If you are scheduled for one S3 class and then receive a spot from the waitlist for a different S3 class, you will be charged for both classes unless you cancel one of them before the 5pm cancellation window the day before class.
If you are interested in attending an upcoming class and the booking window is already closed, we encourage you to call the studio to see if a spot is open If there is room, our team will be happy to reserve it for you. You are also welcome to come to the studio to see if a spot is/becomes available but be aware that any waitlisted clients physically present will take priority over drop in clients. Your account will be charged upon confirmation of a spot in class.
