The Skillful Mind team want you to be totally satisfied with our service as we would love to take you on a complete journey of personal growth to find inner peace and success in your life. To assist in our mutual understanding we have created a few policies we would like you to be familiar with at time of booking.  None of these policies are intended to contradict or contravene the Australian Consumer Law.  Policies are subject to change without notice.

Privacy

All your personal information will remain private and confidential and will not be shared to any third party without the express permission of the owner.

 
How We Keep Your Information Secure
 
The staff of Skillful Mind protect Personal Information against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification with security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the Personal Information. We use various methods to safeguard Personal Information. They include:
- physical measures: no personal information is kept in hard copy and any notes are disposed of securely.
- technical tools: passwords and encryption, using generally industry best practices.
Online security is also a priority. . Firewalls are utilized to protect our servers and network from unauthorized users accessing and tampering with files and other information that we store. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect your credit card information online. Upon entering the checkout page your computer will begin communicating with our server in secure mode. You will be able to tell that you are in secure mode because the "http" in the web address on your browser will change to "https".

Risk warning

The activities, which may include yoga and other forms of exercise, meditation and neuro linguistic programming techniques within our workshops and retreats, involve a risk to participants.
Risk is increased if a participant is suffering pre-existing psychological injury such as anxiety, stress, trauma, depression or has a pre-existing physical injury. There is a possibility of aggravating such pre-existing injuries. If you have a pre-existing condition, we highly recommend you contact your doctor or medical specialist prior to booking.

All participants who engage in Skillful Mind/Adelaide NLP activities do so at their own risk and we recommend travel insurance.
