Communicating your personal data to WEARESSENTIAL when requested in any of the many instances where personal data is collected through the site may be essential in order to achieve the purposes set down by the communication itself, or not prejudicial in this regard.

The compulsory or optional nature of the data provision is specified each time – with reference to the specific data requested – at the point of input for each data collection, by marking compulsory information with an asterisk (*).

If you refuse to communicate the information marked as compulsory to WEARESSENTIAL, it will be impossible to achieve the main purpose of the specific data collection: such a refusal might, for example, make it impossible for WEARESSENTIAL to fulfill the product sale agreement on yogaessential.com or provide the other services available on yogaessential.com.

Communicating additional data to WEARESSENTIAL, other than those marked as compulsory, is optional and will not produce any consequences with regard to the main purposes of the collection (such as using the web site and its services or purchasing the products on sale, for example).

  2. legal obligations or other kind of obligations under the applicable law to retain data for a certain period of time;
