Here are examples of how we might use information per our policy.
Example 1: a teacher is offering a spiritual pilgrimage in Germany and asks me to share this information out to my email list. In order to let people know about this, I send out an informational email to people that may be interested in the information.
This would be considered using emails for promotional purposes or transmitting it to a third party. This also applies to any exchange.
Example 2: The spiritual teacher offers to conduct a Despacho ceremony (a sacred spiritual offering) in gratitude for sending information about his spiritual pilgrimage to my email list. Since there was a non-monetary exchange, this is considered selling information.
For the above reasons we cannot modify our policy as it could have legal implications for our company.
