Rob™ Privacy Notice

Rob™ is committed to safeguarding all personal information collected from individuals in the course of my practice. 

I have developed this Notice to describe how I handle personal information collected from those who use the Rob™ website, or who, in the course of any marketing and /or event communication processes, such as in person, email, telephone, text messaging, direct mail and online, provide me with personal information. 

Personal information means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; an identifiable person is one who can be directly or indirectly identified by reference to an identifier such as name, an identification number, location data, online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that person. 

If you subsequently wish to withdraw your consent to the collection and handling of your personal information, then you may follow the instructions on any communications you receive from us or me using the contact form on this website.

1. Information I collect
The information collected for marketing is limited to name (first name, last name) and e-mail address. Additionally, MailChimp may collect further information as described in their own privacy policy and legal definitions for their business.

In the course of my practice, information about individuals may be needed for specific projects. This will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis outside the scope of this notice.

2. Uses made of the information
Information you give us
We will use this information for: 

  • Contact and communication: I may use your contact information to send you newsletters that I may circulate from time to time, news about any events I am organising or participating in, information about me, my work, and/or to respond to any user enquiries.
  • Provision of services: If specific personal information is necessary to supply a particular service (e.g. an e-mail address for electronic news updates) then this service is only available to those users who provide this information. It does affect a user’s ability to use other parts of the site.

3. Sharing Information
Although I make every effort to preserve user privacy, I may need to disclose personal information when required by law, including (without limitation) in order to comply with applicable local laws or judicial proceedings, court orders or any other legal processes.

I will not share information beyond this legal requirement.

4. Storing Information
Your personal information will be primarily stored and processed by MailChimp. It will accessed on the computing equipment I use on a daily basis, where local copies may be made. I take steps to ensure that information collected is processed according to this Privacy Notice, the requirements of GDPR and other applicable laws.

5. Data Security
Whilst my local computing equipment is protected by firewall and similar IT defences, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure and I cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted using the Internet. I cannot accept liability for any interception of your personal information that may occur. 

6. Your Rights - Correcting/Updating/Deleting/Deactivating/Accessing Personal Information
If you wish to correct and/or update information or you no longer require our service, you can notify us of this change by contacting us using the contact form on this website.

You may, where permitted by GDPR, submit a Subject Access Request (“SAR”) to the Data Protection Officer to check whether we hold your personal information; and/or,
Require us to provide you with a copy of your personal information; and/or,
Require us to correct or delete or restrict the processing of any of your personal information that is inaccurate or that you don’t want us to hold. This request should be made in writing to our contact address (below).

7. Contacting Me
If you want to contact me with any questions, please use the contact form on this website.
8. Changes to the Privacy Notice 
I may, from time to time, make changes to this Privacy Notice. Please check back here to see any updates or changes.
