The JLW takes your privacy seriously and is committed to protecting your personal information that you have shared with me. The statement below explains how the JLW collects and uses the information which you give me.
My aim is to safeguard your privacy whilst providing a personalised and valuable spiritual experience. Collecting personal information is necessary if I am to satisfy the expectations and requirements of my helpdesk enquirers.
My commitment to you:
All the data that I use is held in accordance with the requirements laid out in current data protection legislation. If you have any requests concerning your personal information or any questions about how I manage your data, please contact me via the Help Desk Form.
Ways in Which I Use Your Personal Information
The only area of my website that collects personal data is the Help Desk Form, in which I ask you to provide your name and email address to enable me to contact you with information you request. I also retain your details when you email me with a further enquiry or request so that I can respond effectively to you. I do not collect information about the things you do on the website except where you explicitly share those with me.
I do not analyse the personal information you provide in any way except to enable me to respond to your enquiries and do not make use of additional information sources to help me build a better profile of you. The only information I retain access to is that which you explicitly share with me.
I keep your personal information until such time as you may request its deletion.
I will only ever use your data in line with my commitments to you. Should you have any concerns about this, please contact me at the JLW Help Desk.
I will never contact you directly except in response to an enquiry from you and using the methods for which you have given your clear consent.
Sharing Your Data
I will never sell your details to any other individuals or organisations.
If you have given your specific consent for me to share your data, it will only be to specific individuals or organisations for whom you have given your explicit consent.
Keeping Your Details Up To Date
If you change your email address or if any of the other information you have previously provided changes in any way please contact me using the JLW Help Desk Form.
I know how much trust you place in me when you share your personal data since I value my own privacy. Because of that I place great importance on the security of your personal information and will always take appropriate precautions to protect it.
This website uses industry-standard software protection for secure communications. Your personal information, such as your name and email address, is securely encrypted so that it cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet. While on the secure Help Desk Form page, the lock icon on Web browsers such as Firefox and Chrome indicates this.
Even with all these precautions, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. So, whilst I strive to protect your personal information, I cannot guarantee the security of any information which you disclose to me online and you must understand that you do so at your own risk.
The JLW website does not track any browser access so, for example, I do not record the date, time or the IP address used and therefore there is no linkage to any personal data you have shared. The only tracking information I gather is the anonymous total number of hits on the website.
Cookies are small pieces of information sent by a web server to a web browser, which enables the server to collect information from the browser. The JLW website does not utilise cookies since I assume that you are the best judge of how to navigate the webpages that are of interest to you.
Internet-Based Transfers and Processing
The Internet works as a global environment. This means that using it to collect and process personal data often involves the international transmission of data and, on occasions, processing of personal data by third parties (including social media companies) outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Indeed you, and therefore your browser, may also reside outside of the EEA.
Whilst this may happen, you can be reassured that the data will always be held securely and in line with the requirements of UK data protection legislation. However, I want you to be aware that by communicating electronically with me, you understand and agree to my processing of personal data in this way. If you do not agree to your personal data being processed by email and website host servicing companies, please do not use this site if you intend making use of the JLW Help Desk Form.
I may make changes to this policy from time to time. Please revisit the policy whenever you want to confirm how I use your personal information on a current basis.
Access To Your Personal Information
Under the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to request and be sent:
You can make a request by the JLW Help Desk Form. However, I reiterate that the only information that I hold will be that which you have explicitly provided through your communications to the website.
Your Rights and Acceptance of this Policy
Any personal information submitted via my website is treated in accordance with current UK data protection legislation (from May 25 2018). To find out more about your entitlements under the current and future data protection legislation, visit the Information Commissioner's website .
I make no distinction in my treatment of minors since I do not want to exclude under-18s from gaining spiritual enlightenment from my work. However, minors should always ask a parent or guardian for permission before sending personal information to anyone online.
I will hold your personal information on my system in perpetuity. If you ask for your personal information to be deleted I will effect such request within one month and will email confirmation of deletion to you. This will, however, retain your email address to confirm all previous communications have been deleted.
Whilst I will take all reasonable steps to protect and secure your personal data, I cannot guarantee the confidentiality of any messages transmitted between you and myself via email as these are potentially accessible by the public. I will not be liable to you or anyone else for any loss relating to any email message sent by you to me or by me to you.
