Privacy Policy

Who I Am

I am committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of all visitors to our web site. In particular, I want you to know that I am not in the business of selling, renting or trading email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes.

In this Privacy Policy, I’ve provided detailed information on when and why I collect personal information, how I use it, the limited conditions under which I may disclose it to others, and how I keep it secure.

I take your privacy seriously and take measures to provide all visitors and users of The Wider Reality with a safe and secure environment.

Cookies

I may set and access The Wider Reality cookies on your computer.  Cookies are used to provide our system with the basic information to provide the services you are requesting.  Cookies can be cleared at any time from your internet browser settings.

Analytics

When someone visits The Wider Reality I use a third party service, Squarespace Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. I do this to track things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site and interactions with the site. This information is processed in a way that does not identify anyone. I do not make (and do not allow Squarespace to make) any attempt to find out the identities of visitors to our website.

Website Comments

When someone visits The Wider Reality there may be an ability to submit comments on particular articles or pages.  When comments are submitted, you are entitled to use aliases or information that completely hides your identity. When a comment is submitted, the relevant details (name, email, website) that you provide are stored. These details are stored so that I can display your comment back to you, and to anyone viewing the comment sections on the site. I do not verify information entered nor do I require verification.

Mailing Lists

As part of the registration process for my e-newsletter, I collect personal information. I use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about stuff you’ve asked me to tell you about; to contact you if I need to obtain or provide additional information; to check my records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. I do not rent or trade email lists with other organisations, businesses or individuals.

I use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our emails and newsletters. I gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help me to monitor and improve my e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails.

Pre-Retreat Questionnaires/Booking Terms & Conditions

When you put down a deposit for one of the retreats, I will send you forms requesting personal information about your experiences with medicines, travel plans, contact details and more. This information is necessary for me to know if I am able to work with you, for health and safety reasons. I also need to be able to contact you ahead of the retreats to ensure that you arrive  as planned, while you are in the country of the retreat.

I never ask for any information that is not relevant to the services I will be providing, your safety or organisation for the retreat. I will never share this information with anybody external to The Wider Reality and my co-hosts. If you prefer that it is deleted from my system after the retreat, you are welcome to request this by contacting me at info@thewiderreality.com, and I will do so.

Please note that I am unable to delete your signed Booking Terms & Conditions as these are legal documents that may need to be referred to at any point in the future.

Access to Your Personal Information

You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that I hold. Email your request to me at info@thewiderreality.com and I will work with you to remove any of your personal data The Wider Reality may have.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

I may make changes to my Privacy Policy in the future, however, the most current version of the policy will govern my processing of your personal data and will always be available here.

If I make a change to this policy that, in my sole discretion, is material, I will notify you by an update or email, where possible. By continuing to access or use my services, you agree to be bound to the terms of our Privacy Policy.
