WHO WE ARE

White Light Spirit Healing is based in Rendlesham, Suffolk (UK). Our website address is: http://www.loveandwhitelight.com.

This website is managed by a private individual on a sole trader basis. It is designed for the purpose of sharing spiritual and esoteric knowledge to those seeking it, and to help you on your journey where we can.

WHAT PERSONAL DATA MAY BE COLLECTED, AND WHY

When you have a full White Light Spirit Healing treatment:

We keep paper records of personally identifiable data for the purposes of staying in touch to see how you’re progressing, as well as to record the healing “work” we have completed for you. Rest assured, this information is kept in a lockable filing cabinet within a locked room that only SJQ accesses. You will have signed a declaration form at the time of your first consultation that allows SJQ to do this. We keep your contact details and treatment records as an aide memoire of the healing that has transpired, but also to record some of the data needed to comply with our holistic practitioner insurance (which is a legal obligation on us), and we keep these for SEVEN years.

When you join a Divine I AM energy transmission or WLSH pop-up healing taster:

We keep your name and those contact details you gave when you booked so we can check you’re still joining us (in case SJQ has a waiting list, and can offer your spot elsewhere if you’re not still attending). This is not shared with anyone else.

When you enter our Prize Draw for a FREE full one-to-one WLSH healing treatment:

You will have shared your name, phone no. and/or email address with us to be in with a chance of winning a full 90-mins WLSH healing treatment. At the point of entering the competion or fundraising auction, you will have been advised that we keep your details for the purpose of arranging the treatment session and we will add your name and email details to our email list, currently managed on MailChimp, which is hot as mustard at keeping your details secure. I keep these paper records securely so that we can demonstrate when/where you opted in to our mailing list. If you no longer wish to receive offers or monthly newsletters from us, simply unsubscribe via the footer on MailChimp.

COOKIES

Website Cookies

These are not currently used to track you, and we do not currently collect any personal data from you unless you choose to sign up to our super sparkly Newsletter or interact with any blog posts.

When visitors leave comments on the blog posts, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string — for the purpose of assisting with spam and nasty trolls detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/.

After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Blog Post Cookies

If you leave a comment on our blog posts, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

CONTENT FROM OTHER SITES

Going forward, it may be that articles on this site may include embedded content (eg. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behave in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

It may be that these websites collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR DATA

If you leave a comment on a blog post, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Going forward, in future site developments where users register on our website for privileged (paywall) services, we will store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users will be able to see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

WHAT RIGHTS YOU HAVE OVER YOUR DATA

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments on blog posts, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. (This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.)
