This policy will be continuously assessed against new technologies, business practices, and our customer’s needs.

How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?

Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of administering our business activities, providing the products and services you requested, to process your payment, to monitor the use of the service, our marketing and promotional efforts and improve our content and service offerings, and customise our site`s content, layout, services and for other lawful purposes.

You may notify us at any time if you do not wish to receive these offers by emailing us at the link provided on the newsletter.

What’s GDPR?

This is a European Union regulation, designed to improve the data security and privacy of European citizens. Find out more on Wikipedia – the short version is “companies in Europe have to make sure your data is safe, and that you can access and control it”. Sounds like a good idea, right?

It’s about giving you greater security, transparency, and control of your personal data online. We think this is a good thing wherever you’re from, not just if you live in the European Union!

GDPR and Dee Hutchinson Talent Development (DHTD)

We’ve made GDPR compliance a priority at DHTD. For us this is not just box-ticking, but about embedding these new principles of privacy and security into everything we do. We’re reviewing our contracts with vendors and partners to make sure they are also compliant, and can give us the guarantees on privacy and data protection that we need, such as the EU-US Privacy Shield framework.

How can I exercise my GDPR rights?

We are currently revisiting our data subject policies and processes so they are GDPR compliant. In the meantime, if you have any questions about your rights as a data subject, please contact us at dee@deehutchinson.com and we’ll be very happy to help.

Yeah, but what IS a data subject?

Good point! A data subject is legal jargon for any living person who has some personal data stored somewhere. So, that means pretty much all of us! We can’t, unfortunately, rewrite European Regulations without all the legal jargon, but we’ll try to explain them to you when necessary!

What does this mean for me?

If you’re a company, this means more transparency and visibility of how we process personal data. If you’re an individual, you don’t need to do anything! This all just means your data is safer than ever.

How do I exercise my GDPR rights?

GDPR (the European General Data Protection Regulation) is designed to give you more rights and control over your personal data. When a company has information from which you can be directly or indirectly identified, you now have rights over what happens to that data. Here’s how to take advantage of them.

What’s ‘personal data’?

‘Personal data’ could be your name, ID number, location data, an online identifier of yours, or even your physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity.

OK, so how do I find out about this data?

The rights included in GDPR are:

·              The right of access

·              The right to rectification

·              The right to erasure (right to be forgotten)

·              The right to data portability

·              The right to object

If you want to exercise your right to access the data we store about you

GDPR gives you the right to access information that companies hold about you. You also have the right to request all personal and supplementary information we hold about you.  Contact dee@deehutchinson.com if you want to exercise your right to access the data we store about you, and we’ll be happy to help.

If you want want to exercise your right to rectify the data we store about you

Contact dee@deehutchinson.com if you want to exercise your right to rectify the data we store about you, and we’ll be happy to help.

If you want to exercise your right to erasure (right to be forgotten)

GDPR gives you the right to be forgotten, officially known as the right to erasure. It’s not as intense as it sounds – it just means you can ask companies to delete any information they store about you.

So if you want to be forgotten or erased, you just have to ask! We’ll delete all the information we keep about you, with the exception of anything required to comply with the law.

We’ve made it easier for you to delete your account, and all the information connected with it. This includes homework you may have submitted as part of your Deetox 30 Day Challenge or videos and posts in our other programs like Deepartures and the Deetox Grad School.

Once you confirm that you want to delete your account, we’ll remove/anonymize all the information we have about you in our systems within 30 days (we need this time to ensure that everything is removed from our back up systems, too). We’ll also delete your information from all our activity logs and data stored in third-party systems. This process may take up to 90 days.

Contact dee@deehutchinson.com if you want to exercise your right to erasure, and we’ll be happy to help.

If you want to exercise your right to data portability

Contact dee@deehutchinson.com if you want to exercise your right to data portability, and we’ll be happy to help.

If you want to to exercise your right to object to the data we store about you

Contact dee@deehutchinson.com if you want to exercise your right to object to the data we store about you, and we’ll be happy to help.

What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site`s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser`s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a Website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Browsers are usually set to accept cookies. However, if you would prefer not to receive cookies, you may alter the configuration of your browser to refuse cookies. If you choose to have your browser refuse cookies, it is possible that some areas of our site will not function as effectively when viewed by the users.  A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive or pass on computer viruses.

How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?

As you visit and browse our website, the site uses cookies to differentiate you from other users. In some cases, we also use cookies to prevent you from having to log in more than is necessary for security. Cookies, in conjunction with our web server’s log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our website and which parts of the site are most popular. This helps us gather feedback to constantly improve our Website and better serve our clients. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not intentionally store any personal information that your browser provided to us in your cookies.

What are Dynamic Ads?

Dynamic Ads are ads that are personalized in real-time to the user. Unlike static ads that show the same content on every impression, Dynamic Ads enable the advertiser to display a unique creative for different users. Dynamic Ads are the only feasible way to scale up the number of creatives per campaign and to personalize them on each impression.

IP Addresses

IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as traffic data so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you.

What About Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information?

We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights. We may also disclose account information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Terms of Service or to protect the safety of our users and the Public.

Your Consent

By using our website you consent to our collection and use of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to amend this Privacy Policy at any time with or without notice.
