We are committed to your privacy and security and want to provide you with the best online experience. To that end we want you to understand what kinds of information we gather, how this information is used and safeguarded, and how you can control its use. It is important for you to know that Dame Stephanie will never sell, trade or rent your personal information to others.
– We will always store personal information securely.
– We will only hold contact information as long as necessary.
– We will always stop using and holding personal data upon a person’s request.
Under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) personal data is defined as: “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person”
It is possible to browse this site without submitting any personal information at all. However, if you choose to submit an enquiry or subscribe to Dame Stephanie’s ‘Letters’ you will be asked to provide some personal data including your email address. In any event, we are committed to ensuring that the information we collect and use is appropriate for these purposes, and does not constitute an invasion of your privacy.
In addition to the information that you choose to submit, our systems are set up to gather certain anonymous data to help us better understand how this site is being used and how we can improve it. This automatically gathered data includes your computer’s IP (Internet Protocol) address, statistics about how visitors navigate through the site and information provided through the use of ‘cookies’.
Cookies are small files that we send to and store on your computer so that we may recognise it as a unique machine the next time you visit our site. NB: your personal information is not stored, saved or collected. There are three reasons for doing this.
– To keep track of your information for your convenience
– To help us to optimise your online experience by altering our content depending on your particular needs or browsing patterns
– To help us to understand the size of our audience and their traffic patterns within our site.
We may pass your personal data on to third-party service providers contracted to Dame Stephanie in the course of dealing with you. Any third parties that we may share your data with are obliged to keep your details securely, and to use them only to fulfil the service they provide you on our behalf. When they no longer need your data to fulfil this service, they will dispose of the details in line with our procedures. If we wish to pass your sensitive personal data onto a third party we will only do so once we have obtained your consent, unless we are legally required to do otherwise.
We will process (collect, store and use) the information you provide in a manner compatible with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We will endeavour to keep your information accurate and up to date, and not keep it for longer than is necessary. How long certain kinds of personal data should be kept may also be governed by specific business-sector requirements and agreed practices. Personal data may be held in addition to these periods depending on individual business needs.
Our aim is not to be intrusive, and we undertake not to ask irrelevant or unnecessary questions. Moreover, the information you provide will be subject to rigorous measures and procedures to minimise the risk of unauthorised access or disclosure.
At your request, we can confirm what information we hold about you and how it is processed.
You have the ability to terminate e-mail correspondence from us at any time. You will either be given the chance to opt-in to direct mailing when you disclose your e-mail address to us, or you can simply reply to our e-mail, typing ‘unsubscribe’ in the subject line.
Any queries regarding this Policy and our privacy practices should be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In accordance with GDPR you have the right to lodge a complaint, update or have your information deleted upon request.
