Cookie / Privacy Policy

We have created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm and continuing commitment to the privacy of personal information provided by those visiting and interacting with this web site. We hold the privacy of your personal information in the highest regard. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website.

Due to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which became law on the 25th of May, 2018, please read the following because it's about what you need to know as a reader or subscriber of mine.

This is about what I do with your data and the reason, why I do it.

Now, this is great news because you will have a lot more control and influence over who has what data about you.

To put it simply and easily, you have the following rights regarding your data and privacy:

-The right not to have things done with your data without your knowledge

-The right to be informed about what I do with your data

-The right to object if you feel something is not right

-The right to rectification of your data

-The right to erasure of your data

-The right of access to your data

-The right to restrict processing of your data

And the great thing is, those terms and conditions now need to be written in a way that is easy for you to understand so that you know exactly what's happening to your data.

So now – you as an individual/person must specifically ‘opt-in' to receive emails or to allow your data to be shared and you can ask for it to be removed at any time.

To do this, simply click at the, ‘unsubscribe' link at the bottom of the email and you will be taken to a webpage which will give you the option to un-subscribe. There is another link at the bottom of the email, which will take you to another webpage that will allow you to change your email address. Whilst you can put your name in there, I won't be using your name (and probably never will).
If you do wish to stop emails being sent, just simply follow the instructions, and you will no longer receive emails from myself.

If you are unable to do that, then please let me know/ contact me. I've never emailed anyone who has unsubscribed.

I have never shared any of your data, and I won't ever. I will not sell or pass your email address or any of your data in any way.

I just wanted to make that clear and to tell you about GDPR and my duties.

Common Frequently Asked Questions  ?

‘Do I need to do anything?'

Quick answer, no.

If you want to keep receiving my emails then you don't need to do anything

Of course, I really hope want to stay on my list, but if you don't, you can opt-out at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of each and every email you have had from myself or by sending me an email with your request to  admin -at- healingbymind.com.
