Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: https://ruthjeffstherapies.co.uk.

I am committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of the visitors to my 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. I just don’t do that sort of thing. But just in case you don’t believe me, in this Privacy Policy, I’ve provided detailed information on when and why I collect your personal information, how I use it, the limited conditions under which I may disclose it to others and how I keep it secure.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Contact forms

When you use the contact form on my website to send me an email, I collect personal information from you. I use contact form submission information only to exchange emails with you about my services, and to contact you if I need to obtain or provide additional information; and to check my records are correct. I do not rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses. I do not use the information submitted through the forms for marketing purposes.

Cookies

This website uses cookies to collect information. This includes information about browsing behaviour by people who access this website. This includes information about pages viewed and the customer journey around this website.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

When someone visits www.ruthjeffstherapies.co.uk I use a third-party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard Internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. I do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way that does not identify anyone. I do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

Google Web Fonts

For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. For this purpose your browser has to establish a direct connection to Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that my web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of the plugin. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.

Further information about handling user data, can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s privacy policy at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

I will share personal information via a thrid-party integration with PayPal upon your decision to pay online for my therapy services unless stated otherwise in this policy. Any PayPal payment/usage is governed by their Privacy Policy which can be read here: https://www.paypal.com/uk/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-prev. Before authorising an account connection, you should review the privacy notice of any third-party that you authorised to have an account connection that will gain access to your Personal Data as part of the account connection.

I will use all such information that we receive from a third-party via an account connection in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Who we share your data with

I do not share your data or information with anyone else, or any other organisations without this data being anonymous, such as with Google Analytics, or without your knowing such as when using PayPal to make a payment on this site.
