What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Personal information is collected through forms on the website for Memberships and Subscriptions (paying for Memberships). This information is used to ensure that practitioners are qualified and eligible for Memberships. Names, email addresses and physical address information are stored in the User database. Names and email addresses are stored also with an email service for newsletters. Members can log in to their account and update their information or delete their account. Passwords are private and can only be accessed by Members. IP addresses are stored for security purposes.

Payments are processed through PayPal; only the amount paid and the date and time of the transaction are held on the website, for the purpose of managing the membership list, discounts for events and allowing access to members-only content or creating or managing a directory listing.

All information that practitioners share for their directory listings is stored in the database of the website. 

Email signup information for the newsletter includes name, email and date, which are stored in the database for the website and with a third party email service. A third party email service is used to manage email campaigns and newsletters communicating with members and those who have signed up. Some engagement data is stored, including whether campaigns have been viewed or not; helping in continual improvement in our communications.
