Privacy Policy

The Beautiful Design Project Limited is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This policy explains when and why we collect personal information, as the data controller, how we use it, the conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure. By using our website, or participating in our Six-Part Programme you are agreeing to be bound by this policy. Any questions regarding this policy and our privacy practices should be sent by email to info@thebeautifuldesignproject.com.

How do we collect information from you?

We obtain information about you when you:

  • Complete a booking to participate in our programme
  • Enquire about our programs via email or through our web form, or telephone.
  • Subscribe to our monthly newsletter via our website.

 

What type of information is collected from you?

The personal information we collect might include your name, telephone number, email address, job title, and organisation.

If you make a purchase from us, your card information is not held by us, it is collected by our third-party payment processor, who specialise in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions, as explained below.

How is your information used?

We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data where we need to perform the contract we are about to enter into or have entered into with you.

We may use your information to:

Process a booking that you have made and send you further information about the programme.

Send you communications that you have requested and that may be of interest to you – including news and information about The Beautiful Design Project Limited which may be necessary for our legitimate interests (to ensure that we are able to provide the best service to you).

Who has access to your information?

We will not sell or rent your information to third parties.

We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.

We may pass your information to our third party service providers, agent subcontractors and other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf. We work with Mailchimp for processing mailings and Paypal for processing payments. However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service. Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties beyond The Beautiful Design Project Limited network for them to use for their own direct marketing purposes, unless you have requested us to do so. We may also share your personal data with third parties in circumstances where we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.

We may transfer your personal information to a third party as part of a sale of some or all of our business and assets to any third party or as part of any business restructuring or reorganisation, or if we’re under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation or to enforce or apply our terms of use or to protect the rights, property or safety of our supporters and customers. However, we will take steps with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected.

Your choices

You have a choice about whether or not you wish to receive information from us. If you do not want to receive direct marketing communications from us then you can unsubscribe from our mailing list at any time by clicking on the relevant link at the bottom of our newsletter or by contacting us directly.

How you can access and update your information

The accuracy of your information is important to us. If you change email address, or any of the other information we hold is inaccurate or out-of-date, please email us at info@thebeautifuldesignproject.com.

You have the right to ask for a copy of the information The Beautiful Design Project Limited holds about you. We may charge a reasonable fee to cover the administrative costs incurred in providing that information in certain circumstances.

Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. 

Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
