Who We Are
We are Bedeau Group Limited (“Bedeau Group”, “we“, “us” or “our“) operating under the brand name The Lightworker.
Our registered office and correspondence address is 86-90, Paul Street, London EC2A 4NE.
Our company number is: 12939726
We can be contacted at email@example.com
We take a proactive approach to user privacy and ensure the necessary steps are taken to protect the privacy of our users throughout their visiting experience.
When you use or contact our Site, you do so at your own discretion and provide any personal details requested at your own risk. Your personal information is kept private and stored securely until it is no longer required or has no use, as detailed below. Every effort has been made to ensure a safe and secure form to the email submission process but we advise users using our forms that you do so at your own risk.
As the party responsible for data processing we ensure that the processed data:
- is processed in accordance with the applicable privacy regulations; and
- is sufficiently protected to not be exposed to persons who should have no access to it by taking technical, contractual and organisational safety measures.
We may collect and process the following data about you:
- Information you give us. We collect information you voluntarily provide to us by filling in forms on our Site thelightworker.co.uk (our “Site”), by corresponding with us by phone, e-mail, or in other ways. The information you give us may include your name, address, e-mail address and phone number. Where we take any financial payments from you, these will be done securely and in accordance with industry standards.
- Information we collect automatically. Whenever you visit our Site we may automatically collect the following information about you:
- technical information. We may, for example, collect information about the type of device you use to access our websites, the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet, your login information, browser type and version, time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access this Site;
- information about your visit, including the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL) clickstream to, through and from our Site (including date and time); pages you viewed or searched for; page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs), and methods used to browse away from the page and any phone number used to call our customer services number.
- Information we receive from other sources. We may receive information about you if you use any of the other websites we operate or the other services we provide.
- Emails addresses are collected via a subscriber box and stored on Mailerlite.
Under GDPR we will ensure that your personal data is processed lawfully, fairly, and transparently, without adversely affecting your rights. We will only process your personal data if at least one of the following basis applies:
a) you have given consent to the processing of your personal data for one or more specific purposes.
b) processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, or in order to take steps at the request of you prior to entering into a contract.
c) processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject;
d) processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of you or of another natural person;
e) processing is in our legitimate interests or those of a third party such as our credit card payment processing, unless these interests are overridden by the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject (this will normally be you). For example, we rely on our legitimate interest basis to analyse and improve our Services and the content on our websites and apps, to send you information about our services, and offer you suggestions about similar products and services that might interest you. We can use your personal information in this way because it is in our legitimate interests to provide you with relevant information when appropriate, so that we may look at ways of establishing and extending our relationship with you.
If we receive personal information from another user in the course of providing our Services to you, we expect you to have complete responsibility for making sure that the contents of this Privacy Notice are brought to their attention and you have obtained their consent in the process.
In some instances, it may be appropriate for us to combine your information with other information that we may be holding about you – such as combining your name with your geographic location or your history with us.
If you fail to provide personal data
If you choose not to provide the personal information we request, you can still visit most areas of the Site but you may be unable to access certain options and services. You have the final decision on whether to proceed with any activity that requests personal information.
In some cases, the collection of personal data may be a statutory or contractual requirement, and we will be limited in the services we can provide you if you don’t provide your personal data – for example, if you do not provide us with your personal data, you will not be able to apply for a digital subscription to our magazine. We will let you know how this will affect you at the time.
If you leave a comment on our site 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 visit our login page, 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.
Embedded Content From Other Websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can 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, 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.
How to contact us about this privacy notice
You can contact us using these details for one or more of the following reasons:
- To ask us to fix information about you that is wrong or incomplete, or to delete personal information about you (the so-called “Right to be Forgotten”).
- To tell us you no longer agree to, that you object to, or that you wish to restrict us using information about you and ask us to stop.
- To tell us to stop using your personal information to tell you about products or services that may be of interest to you (direct marketing).
- A right of access, namely to ask us to provide you with a copy of all of the personal information that we have about you.
- A “data portability” right, namely to obtain and reuse the information that you have provided to us for your own purposes across different services. You may ask for this information to be provided directly to you or directly to another organisation. We will provide the information in a machine readable format so that another organisation’s software can understand that information.
Sometimes we will not be able to stop using your personal information when you ask us to (e.g. where we need to use it because the law requires us to do so or we need to retain the information for regulatory purposes).
In other cases, if we stop using your personal information, we will not be able to provide services to you.
We will tell you if we are unable to comply with your request, or how your request might impact you, when you contact us.
We are committed to working with you to obtain a fair resolution of any complaint or concern you may have about our use of your personal information. If you have any concerns about the way in which we are using your personal information, please contact us in the first instance and we will endeavour to resolve your concern.
