This is the privacy notice of Bloom with Beth. In this document, "I" or "my" refer to www.bloomwithbeth.co.uk. My registered office is at
of 55 Moat Farm Road, Northolt, Middlesex, UB5 5DS.
This is a notice to inform you of my policy about all information that I record about you. It sets out the conditions under which I may process any information that I collect from you, or that you provide to me. It covers information that could identify you (“personal information”) and information that could not. In the context of the law and this notice, “process” means collect, store, transfer, use or otherwise act on information.
I regret that if there are one or more points below with which you are not happy, your only recourse is to leave my website immediately.
I take seriously the protection of your privacy and confidentiality. I understand that all visitors to my website are entitled to know that their personal data will not be used for any purpose unintended by them, and will not accidentally fall into the hands of a third party.
I undertake to preserve the confidentiality of all information you provide to me, and hope that you reciprocate.
My policy complies with UK law accordingly implemented, including that required by the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The law requires me to tell you about your rights and my obligations to you in regards to the processing and control of your personal data. I do this now, by requesting that you read the information provided at www.knowyourprivacyrights.org
Except as set out below, I do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any information collected through my website.
The bases on which we process information about you
The law requires me to determine under which of six defined bases we process different categories of your personal information, and to notify you of the basis for each category.
If a basis on which we process your personal information is no longer relevant then we shall immediately stop processing your data.
If the basis changes then if required by law I will notify you of the change and of any new basis under which I have determined that we can continue to process your information.
1.Information we process because we have a contractual obligation with you
When you create an account on my website, buy a product or service from me, or otherwise agree to my terms and conditions, a contract is formed between you and me.
In order to carry out my obligations under that contract I must process the information you give me. Some of this information may be personal information.
I may use it in order to:
verify your identity for security purposes
sell products to you
provide you with my services
provide you with suggestions and advice on products, services and how to obtain the most from using my website
I process this information on the basis there is a contract between us, or that you have requested we use the information before we enter into a legal contract.
Additionally, I may aggregate this information in a general way and use it to provide class information, for example to monitor my performance with respect to a particular service I provide. If I use it for this purpose, you as an individual will not be personally identifiable.
I shall continue to process this information until the contract between us ends or is terminated by either party under the terms of the contract.
2.Information we process with your consent
Through certain actions when otherwise there is no contractual relationship between us, such as when you browse my website or ask me to provide you more information about my business, including job opportunities and my products and services, you provide your consent to me to process information that may be personal information.
Sometimes you might give your consent implicitly, such as when you send me a message by e-mail to which you would reasonably expect me to reply.
Except where you have consented to my use of your information for a specific purpose, I will not use your information in any way that would identify you personally. I may aggregate it in a general way and use it to provide class information, for example to monitor the performance of a particular page on my website.
If you have given me explicit permission to do so, I may from time to time pass your name and contact information to selected associates whom I consider may provide services or products you would find useful.
I continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists.
You may withdraw your consent at any time by instructing me at email@example.com. However, if you do so, you may not be able to use my website or my services further.
3.Information we process for the purposes of legitimate interests
I may process information on the basis there is a legitimate interest, either to you or to me, of doing so.
Where I process your information on this basis, I do after having given careful consideration to:
whether the same objective could be achieved through other means
whether processing (or not processing) might cause you harm
whether you would expect me to process your data, and whether you would, in the round, consider it reasonable to do so
For example, I may process your data on this basis for the purposes of:
record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of our organisation or business
responding to unsolicited communication from you to which I believe you would expect a response
protecting and asserting the legal rights of any party
insuring against or obtaining professional advice that is required to manage organisational or business risk
protecting your interests where I believe I have a duty to do so
4.Information we process because we have a legal obligation
I am subject to the law like everyone else. Sometimes, I must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation.
For example, I may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorisation such as a search warrant or court order.
This may include your personal information.
Specific uses of information you provide to me
5.Information provided on the understanding that it will be shared with a third party
My website may allow you to post information with a view to that information being read, copied, downloaded, or used by other people.
posting a message our forum
tagging an image
clicking on an icon next to another visitor’s message to convey your agreement, disagreement or thanks
In posting personal information, it is up to you to satisfy yourself about the privacy level of every person who might use it.
I do not specifically use this information except to allow it to be displayed or shared.
Once your information enters the public domain, I have no control over what any individual third party may do with it. I accept no responsibility for their actions at any time.
6.Complaints regarding content on our website
My website is a publishing medium. Anyone may subscribe and then publish information about himself, herself or some other person.
I do not moderate or control what is posted.
If you complain about any of the content on my website, I shall investigate your complaint.
If I feel it is justified or if I believe the law requires me to do so, I shall remove the content while I investigate.
Free speech is a fundamental right, so I have to make a judgment as to whose right will be obstructed: yours, or that of the person who posted the content that offends you.
If I think your complaint is vexatious or without any basis, I shall not correspond with you about it.
7.Information relating to your method of payment
Payment information is never taken by me or transferred to me either through my website or otherwise. Our employees and contractors never have access to it.
At the point of payment, you are transferred to a secure page on the website of Stripe | iZettle | PayPal | or some other reputable payment service provider. That page may be branded to look like a page on our website, but it is not controlled by us.
8.Job application and employment
If you send me information in connection with a job application, I may keep it for up to three years in case I decide to contact you at a later date.
If I employ you, I collect information about you and your work from time to time throughout the period of your employment. This information will be used only for purposes directly relevant to your employment. After your employment has ended, I will keep your file for six years before destroying or deleting it.
9.Sending a message to our support team
When you contact me, whether by telephone, through our website or by e-mail, I collect the data you have given to me in order to reply with the information you need.
I record your request and my reply in order to increase the efficiency of my business / organisation.
I keep personally identifiable information associated with your message, such as your name and email address so as to be able to track my communications with you to provide a high quality service.
When I receive a complaint, I record all the information you have given to me.
I use that information to resolve your complaint.
If your complaint reasonably requires me to contact some other person, I may decide to give to that other person some of the information contained in your complaint. I do this as infrequently as possible, but it is a matter for my sole discretion as to whether I do give information, and if I do, what that information is.
I may also compile statistics showing information obtained from this source to assess the level of service I provide, but not in a way that could identify you or any other person.

No such information is personally identifiable to you.

19.Encryption of data sent between us
I use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates to verify my identity to your browser and to encrypt any data you give me.
Whenever information is transferred between us, you can check that it is done so using SSL by looking for a closed padlock symbol or other trust mark in your browser’s URL bar or toolbar.
20.How you can complain
If a dispute is not settled then I hope you will agree to attempt to resolve it by engaging in good faith with me in a process of mediation or arbitration.
