We may share anonymous Individual and aggregate data for research and analysis purposes.
Additionally, we use Personal Information in the following ways:

Some of these tools may store information on mobile or other devices. These tools may transmit Personal Information to Yogis by FS to enable Individuals to access user accounts and to enable Yogis by FS to track use of these tools. Some of these tools may enable users to email reports and other information from the tool.
