Information Policy (GDPR 2018)
How We Protect and Use Your Information
Who We Are
Tarot Professionals Ltd is a limited company registered in the UK and trades as the Tarosophy Tarot Association with a range of social media platforms including Arkartia and Tarot Professionals.
We use Paypal for the majority of our online financial transactions and do not store any credit card, bank or financial information on our sites or local computers.
Our other systems include a membership system and course provision systems. These systems store personal details such as your name, email and location.
Your email address and name are stored with your permission on our mailing systems. We use this to provide you relevant information, news and marketing about our services and the world of divination.
We also maintain spreadsheets of relevant information, usually anonymised, on password-protected devices, such as a list of email addresses to whom to send a special course.
Your information is provided to us only by yourself; we do not purchase additional information or link your data to other sources of marketing information. Other information is created as you use our systems, for example, your access to membership pages and course progress.
How Long Do We Keep Your Information?
We maintain this information for as long as it is relevant, and our mailing system removes obsolete information automatically, such as closed email addresses, etc.
Do We Share Your Information?
Neither ourselves or our service providers pass on your information to third-parties other than on any occasion warranted under current legal requirements, i.e. to law-enforcement agencies.
How We Protect Your Information
We protect your information by utilising high quality third-party service providers who in themselves are adopting the GDPR requirements.
Our own sites are maintained on well-established Internet Service Providers and we have invested in industry-leading Anti-Malware and firewall software in addition to standard protection.
THE GDPR provides welcome clarity to our rights as individuals with regard to information stored about us. Our third-party suppliers are either already adhering to these rights or have tightened their policies in recent months ahead of the GDPR on May 25th 2018.
You already have the right to unsubscribe from our mailing lists and this is facilitated by our mailing lists.
You also have a right to request complete removal of your information from our sites, and we would facilitate this on request.
We can be contacted via our P.A. Charlotte Louise at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The relevant text of the GDPR states that information should be …
a) processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to individuals;
b) collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes; further processing for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes shall not be considered to be incompatible with the initial purposes;
c) adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed;
d) accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date; every reasonable step must be taken to ensure that personal data that are inaccurate, having regard to the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay;
e) kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed; personal data may be stored for longer periods insofar as the personal data will be processed solely for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes subject to implementation of the appropriate technical and organisational measures required by the GDPR in order to safeguard the rights and freedoms of individuals; and
f) processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures.
