By contacting us via this site you are ‘opting-in’ to receive selective information from us that is specifically related to your enquiry. We may process information contained in any enquiry you submit to us regarding our services. The data you provide may be processed for the purposes of answering your enquiry and offering, marketing and selling relevant services to you. There is no statutory requirement for you to provide us with any data. The data you provide will also be processed for the purpose of ensuring the security of our website and our services, maintaining back-ups of our databases and communicating with you. The legal basis for this processing is your consent given when submitting our enquiry form and our legitimate business interest of ensuring the proper maintenance of our website. You may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us using one of the methods given on our Contact Page. We will provide you with copies of any of your personal data we hold or process upon application and receipt of the appropriate fee for providing such information.

Access to all pages on our website can be viewed without registering, log-ins, passwords or payment.

This site requires cookies and JavaScript to be enabled to work correctly and for security purposes. The legal basis for our use of cookies is to ensure the correct functioning of our website. A cookie is a nugget of information that a Web server gives to your browser and vice versa. A cookie cannot find out any personal information about you (such as your email address) or identify the contents of your hard disk or transmit a computer virus. This site only makes use of ‘session cookies’ and no information is stored to the hard disk of computers accessing this site as a consequence of the scripting languages used by the site. JavaScript is a scripting language used to manipulate information displayed in a browser window. JavaScript does not allow the reading or writing of files on a client machine (except to the browser’s cookie file for the duration of the ‘session’). It cannot therefore introduce viruses to your computer or change or remove data from your computer.

Peaceful Alchemy also captures (e.g. via Google analytics and Facebook) information from its website visitors such as referring URL, ISP, browser type, geographical location, length of visit, navigation paths, timing of your visit and the pages visited. This data is used for statistical purposes only and to assist us in assessing website performance. The legal basis of this processing is our legitimate business interest of monitoring our website performance and improving both this and our service offerings.

Email addresses (and any other information provided) are maintained in secure, encrypted and password protected databases. These data are held and stored at our website’s datacentre in Europe. No data will be transferred to or held at a location outside of the EEA. No personal information provided will be passed on to third parties, save as may be required by law, and will not be used for any purpose other than those mentioned above except where this is specifically stated and provided for with your knowledge and consent.

Messages sent via email may not be secure. We recommend you do not send any confidential information to us via email. If you choose to do so this is at your own risk with the prior knowledge that a third party may be able to intercept this.

Any complaints you may have in respect of our control and processing of your personal data should be made to the Information Commissioner’s Office.
