Privacy Policy

This policy was last updated on 10/01/2021.

 

This is the privacy policy (“policy”) for woodbridgehypnosis.com which is run and provided by Pierre Moolman (I, me, and my). I can be contacted at pierre@woodbridgehypnosis.com.

 

I will only use the personal data gathered over this website as set out in this policy. Below you will find information on how I use your personal data, for which purposes your personal data is used, with whom it is shared and what control and information rights you may have.
 

I. Summary of my processing activities

 

The following summary offers a quick overview of the data processing activities that are undertaken on my website. You will find more detailed information under the indicated sections below.

  • When you visit my website for informational reasons without setting up an account, only limited personal data will be processed to provide you with the website itself (see III).

  • In the unlikely event that you are identified as belonging to a customer organization, then I may collect information in order to be able to provide usage reporting to that customer. Note, however, that I currently do not identify customer organizations for this purpose, and accordingly, currently have no plans to report anything to any such customer organization about anyone.

  • In case you register for one of my services, or complete the submission form, further personal data may be processed in the scope of such services (see IV and V). 

  • Furthermore, your personal data may be used to provide you with relevant advertising for my services and products (see VII) and for statistical analysis that helps me to improve my website (see VIII). Additionally, I may seek to improve your website experience with third party content (see IX).

  • Your personal data may be disclosed in limited circumstances to third parties (see X) that might be located outside your country of residence; potentially, different data protection standards may apply (see XII). Note that I have not identified or determined the circumstances in which your data may be disclosed to such third party as no such sharing is planned or imagined yet.

  • I have implemented appropriate safeguards to secure your personal data (see XIII) and retain your personal data only as long as necessary (see XIII).

  • Under the legislation applicable to you, you may be entitled to exercise certain rights with regard to the processing of your personal data (see XIV).

II. Definitions

 

Personal data: means any information relating to a natural person who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, or an online identifier.

 

Processing: means any operation which is performed on personal data, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or any kind of disclosure or other use.

 

III. Informational use of the website

 

When you visit my website for informational reasons, i.e. without registering for any of my services listed under IV and without providing me with personal data in any other form, I may automatically collect additional information about you which will contain personal data only in limited cases and which is automatically recognized by my server, such as:

 

Examples might include:

  • your IP address;

  • your device type, name and IDs;

  • the date and time of your requests;

  • the content of your requests;

  • information on your browser version;

  • your screen resolution;

  • information on your operating system, including language settings.

 

I use such information only to assist me in providing an effective service (e.g. to adapt my website to the needs of your device or to allow you to log in to my website), and to collect broad demographic information for anonymized, aggregated use.

In the event that you are identified by IP or equivalent method as belonging to a customer organization then I may also collect the identity of that organization and use it to create usage reports which show the organization how much of the content I publish is being read by their students, members or employees. This information does not contain anything related to a personal login unless (a) you are a nominated administrator for that organization or (b) your organization specifically requires it as a part of a usage-based access contract.

 

The personal data automatically collected is necessary for us to provide the website, Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. b GDPR, and for my legitimate interest to guarantee the website’s stability and security, Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. f GDPR.

 

IV. Registration for my services

 

Access to subscription content is provided via a variety of mechanisms such as IP site licenses, login via third party federated identity providers or by a personal account with me. Using the federated authentication method institutional selection data may be stored locally in your browser and shared with third party websites that you visit to ease the process of institutional authentication. If your access to my content is provided by an organization or an institution like a university or a company then they choose the access method on your behalf. A personal account is required to purchase content directly from me, or to receive personal services like newsletters and alerts.

 

If you need to create a personal login with me then I will store and process the following:

  • Information (such as your name, user name and email address) that is provided by registration;

  • Information in connection with an account sign-in facility (e.g. log-in and password details);

  • Communications sent by you (e.g. via e-mail or website communication forms).

 

The information that is necessary for the performance of the service is labelled accordingly. All further information is provided voluntarily.

 

I will process the personal data you provide to:

  • Identify you at sign-in;

  • Provide you with the services and information offered through the website or which you request;

  • Administer your account;

  • Communicate with you;

  • (behavioral) Advertising and profiling;

  • Facilitate attendance of an event,
     

For this, the legal basis is Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. b GDPR. The use of your personal data for behavioral advertising and profiling is done for the legitimate interest to improve your experience while using the website, Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. f GDPR.

I use the personal data and contact data you provide by registration to inform you directly about my additional products and services. The use of your personal data for directly advertising related products and services is a legitimate interest for us as a provider of this website, Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. f GDPR.

 

You can object to the use of your personal data for direct marketing at any time. I will then refrain from any processing to the extent it is related to such purposes. You may opt-out of direct marketing via opt-out links in any marketing communication or via user profile pages on the website (where available). You can also inform me about your objection by contacting me at pierre@woodbridgehypnosis.com.

 

Registration data is kept until such time as an account deletion request is made. If such a request is received I will erase your data within 30 days. Statutory storage obligations or the need for legal actions that may arise can lead to a longer retention of your personal data.

 

V. Information about the specific uses that require registration

1. Blogs

 

Where the ability is enabled for you, you may publicly comment on a blog posted on the website. When posting a comment your name or user name may be made public. To be able to comment on a blog you may have to register as described in IV.

 

In addition to the extent of processing described under IV, when you post a comment I will retain some of your personal data such as your IP address and name and other metadata such as time of posting.

 

This is necessary to defend me from possible liability claims that may arise from unlawful comments posted by you and reflects my legitimate interest with regard to the legal justification of this processing activity in Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. f GDPR.

I reserve the right to delete comments that are off-topic, spam, abusive, use excessive foul language, include ad hominem attacks or offend against legal regulations.

2. Web shop

 

For the use of my web shop you have to set up an account as described under IV.  Your customer account retains your personal data for future purchases. You can delete the personal data as well as the account in your account’s settings. This processing is based on Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. b.

 

By statutory law I am required to retain the provided financial data in relation to transactions (including address, payment and order information) for ten years. However, after 2 years I will restrict the processing of your personal data to comply with the statutory requirements and will not process the personal data any further.  Regarding this, the retention of your personal data is based on Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. c GDPR.

 

3. Article alerts and newsletters

 

With your email address you may subscribe to my newsletters that provide you with the latest news about my products and services if you consent to receiving such newsletters. The legal basis for this processing is Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. a GDPR. Your email address will be retained as long as you subscribe to my newsletters.

 

You can unsubscribe from this service by opting out via the link provided in each newsletter.

You can sign up for newsletters and request to be contacted about my products and services via Facebook. For this purpose, I use Facebook Lead Ads, a service by Facebook Inc., 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304 U.S. ("Facebook"). Lead Ads makes it even easier for you to sign up to newsletters and request to be contacted as the form will already be pre-populated via Facebook with your data and you only need to submit the form. Of course, you have the opportunity to amend and review the data before submission. For more information on how lead ads work see here - https://www.facebook.com/business/ads/lead-ads.

 

The legal basis for this processing is Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. a GDPR. Your email address will be retained as long as you subscribe to my newsletters or until you request the removal of your email address.

 

You can unsubscribe from newsletters by opting out via the link provided in each newsletter. If you inquired about a product or service and no longer wish to be contacted, you can email pierre@woodbridgehypnosis.com, citing the name of the product or service, and request that your email address be removed.  

 

4. Events and Conferences

 

I may collect personal data from attendees to my events and conferences to facilitate registration and plan for the events. This includes data categories such as: Identification data (which may include name, address, telephone number, email address), entity type (e.g. academic, government, industry), position titles, curriculum vitaes, professional license information, dietary requirements, gender, information for travel arrangements (i.e., passport data, date of birth) and payment information. I also request information relating to requirements for reasonable accommodation where physical assistance may be needed to attend. I may collect data through a third party vendors as a data processor on my behalf. The use of your personal data in relation to events and conference attendance is based on Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. b GDPR and Art. 9 sec. 2 lit. a GDPR with regard to all health-related information you share with us in order to enable us to provide the required physical assistance to you.

With the consent of attendees, I may use personal data, specifically identification data such as name and email address, to share information with attendees about events and conferences or other products, services and special offers. We’ll continue to send you information and store your data until you ask us to be removed. This notification service is based on your consent, Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. a GDPR.

 

VI. Automated decision making

 

I do not use your personal data for automated decision making which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you; however I do use your personal data to offer you content and services which I believe may be of interest.

 

VII. Online advertising, e-commerce and related tools

 

Although unlikely, I may use marketing services to provide you with interesting offers. For this purpose, I may place advertisements via advertising service providers that may use cookies and/or web beacons that may be activated when you visit my website. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the internet browser and allow recognition of a user. Web beacons are small image files, which allow log file recording and log file analysis. To present online advertising I may use the services of, inter alia, Google AdExchange, Google AdSens. Respective advertisement is labelled as “ADVERTISEMENT” or “AdChoices”.   

 

The cookies and web beacons may enable my service providers to collect information about you and your surfing behavior, e.g. IP address, browser information, information on user activities and click data, and to recognize visitors to my website under a pseudonym and only display products that are likely to be of interest to my visitors. Most of the tools use pseudonymized or aggregated data, e.g. shortened IP addresses. The data is used to analyze the use of my website and, thereby, improve and optimize the website and to display advertising tailored to your needs. I may collect this data (to improve your website experience and to promote my products and services).

Personal data collected via first party cookies is based on Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. f GDPR and represents my legitimate interest to improve your website experience and to promote my products and services. I collect this data via a cookie management tool; you can update your preferences here .

Personal data collected via cookies is based on your consent; Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. a GDPR.

 

Please note that I neither have the control of the extent of personal data that may be collected by the respective plug-in provider nor do I know the processing’s purpose or the period your personal data may be retained. Your personal data may be transferred to and processed inside and outside of the EEA. For further information about the potential risks of a cross border data transfer refer to XI.

 

It is possible that the above providers may disclose your personal data to its business partners, third parties or authorities.

 

You can prevent the installation of such a cookie (i) by a respective setting of your browser that blocks the installation of third party cookies, (ii) by deactivating the interest-related advertising under https://www.google.co.uk/ads/preferences, or (iii) generally blocking cookies under https://www.google.co.uk/settings/ads/plugin.

 

Further information about the processing of your personal data in the provider’s course of operation is provided by its privacy policy. Moreover, you will be provided with further information with regard to your rights and settings concerning privacy. You can access the provider’s privacy policy by following these links:

 

Google AdWords Remarketing and Facebook Custom Audience

In this Website, I may use the remarketing or “Similar audiences” feature of AdWords offered by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”

 

Google may use Cookies/tracking technologies, i.e., text files that are stored on your computer and that allow us to analyze your use of my Website. Information generated by Cookies/tracking technology on your use of this Website (including your IP address) will be transferred to a Google server in the U.S. and stored on that server. After that, the last three digits of the IP address will be deleted by Google so that it is no longer possible to clearly match this IP address with personal data. Google will use this information to analyze your use of the Website, to create website activity reports for the website operators and to provide additional services in connection with the use of the Website and the Internet. Furthermore, Google may transfer this information to third parties, if it is required to do so in accordance with statutory provisions or if third parties process data on behalf of Google.

Furthermore, this Website uses retargeting tags and Custom Audience of Facebook Inc., 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304 U.S., hereinafter referred to as “Facebook”.

Please note that I as the provider of the webpages do not receive any information on the contents of data transferred and their use by Facebook.

 

With regard to the use of Custom Audience I would like to point out that Facebook and third parties use cookies, web beacons or similar technologies to collect or gather information on this Website.

IX. Third party content and social media plug-ins

 

This website may contain links to third party websites. I am not responsible for the content and the data collection on respective third party websites; please check the privacy policy of respective websites for information of respective websites’ data processing activities.

 

1. Social media plug-ins

I may use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, Twitter. This allows you to communicate with such services and like or comment from my website. Social media plug-ins enable a direct communication between your device and the servers of the social media provider, allowing the social media provider to communicate with you and collect information about you browsing my website. This processing is based on Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. f GDPR and represents my legitimate interest to improve your website experience and to optimize my services.

Transfer of personal data takes place whether you have an account with the provider or not.

 

Please note that I neither have the control of the extent of personal data that is collected by the respective plug-in provider nor do I know the processing’s purpose or the period your personal data will be retained.

 

Further information about the processing of your personal data in the provider’s course of operation is provided via their respective privacy policy. Moreover, you will be provided with further information with regard to your rights and setting concerning privacy.

 

a) Facebook Social Plugins

 

I may use so-called social plugins („plugins“) of the social networking site facebook.com provided by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins can be identified by one of Facebook’s logos (white “f” on blue tile or a “thumps-up”-sign) or by the additional text “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list of Facebook Social Plugins and their appearance can be accessed via: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins.

 

If a user visits one of the websites using such a plugin, the user’s browser directly connects to Facebook’s servers. The plugin and its content are made available directly on Facebook’s servers and included in the website by the user’s browser.

 

Due to the integration of the plugin Facebook collects the information that a user is visiting the corresponding website. If the user is logged in on Facebook at the moment he or she visits the website, Facebook may be able to connect the visit on the website to the user’s Facebook account. If the user interacts with the plugin – for example if he or she presses the like button or comments on something – the user’s browser transmits this information to Facebook. Facebook stores this information. If a user is not a member of Facebook, Facebook may collect and store the user’s IP-address. Facebook states that it only collects anonymized IP-addresses in Germany.

 

The reason for and scope of the data acquisition and information about the way in which the data is processed and used by Facebook, as well as the user’s rights in this respect and settings options for protecting the users privacy can be found under: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

 

If the user is a member of Facebook and does not wish Facebook to collect personal data via this homepage and to link this with his data stored on Facebook, the user needs to log off from Facebook before going to this homepage.

 

The user may also block Facebook’s plugins using add-ons for the user’s browser, for example the “Facebook Blocker“.

 

b) Twitter

 

I may use the twitter-button. The button is provided by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. (“Twitter”) The buttons are marked using the text “Twitter” or “Follow” and a stylized blue bird. The button enables the user to share an article or a website of this homepage on Twitter or to follow the provider on Twitter.

If a user visits one of the websites using such a button, the user’s browser directly connects to Twitter’s servers. The Twitter-button and its content are loaded directly from Twitter’s servers and included in the website by the user’s browser. According to the provider’s knowledge, Twitter collects the user IP-address and the website’s URL when the button is loaded from Twitter’s servers. However, this data is only be used for loading and displaying the Twitter-button.

 

Further information can be found in Twitter’s privacy statement under: https://twitter.com/privacy.

 

X. Information sharing

 

Where personal data is disclosed to third parties for the purposes mentioned above the legal basis for the transfer of your personal data is Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. b and f GDPR. Some of the recipients may reside outside the EEA. For further information about cross border transfer in general and transfers outside of the EEA see section on Cross border data transfers.

 

I may disclose your personal data to contractors who assist us in providing the services I offer through the website. Such a transfer will be based on data processing agreements (Art. 28 GDPR). Therefore, my contractors will only use your personal data to the extent necessary to perform their functions and will be contractually bound to process your personal data only on my behalf and in compliance with my requests.

 

In the event that I undergo re-organization or the website is sold to a third party, any personal data I hold about you may be transferred to that re-organized entity or third party in compliance with applicable law.

 

I may disclose your personal data if legally entitled or required to do so (for example if required by law or by a court order). The legal basis for this will be Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. c GDPR (in conjunction with the respective national law).  

 

XI. Cross border data transfers

 

Within the scope of my information sharing activities set out above, your personal data may be transferred to other countries (including countries outside the EEA) which may have different data protection standards from your country of residence. Please note that data processed in a foreign country may be subject to foreign laws and accessible to foreign governments, courts, law enforcement, and regulatory agencies. However, I will endeavor to take reasonable measures to maintain an adequate level of data protection when sharing your personal data with such countries.

 

In the case of a transfer outside of the EEA, this transfer is safeguarded by the EU Model Clauses in accordance with Article 46 GDPR. You can find further information about the aforementioned safeguards by following this link https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection_en.

 

XII. Security

 

My security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced. Whilst I cannot ensure or guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of information will never occur, I use all reasonable efforts to prevent it.
