You are in control of your personal information.
In May 2018, the European Union strengthened the rules governing the use for individuals whose data are provided to businesses. The rules included such things as, the right to be 'forgotten'. The General Data Protection Regulation (or GDPR) instructed businesses to take greater responsibility for how personal data, such as your name, email or phone number, are used and is kept secure.
WitchesWorkshop and OTHER magazine already had policies on the protection of personal privacy and data, and the third party email services we use ensured nothing could happen without an individual approving; even such things as your right to not receive emails from us; for which there has always been an easy press-button opt-out self-governance.
To help provide even greater transparency with how WitchesWorkshop and OTHER magazine do things this page provides both summary and detailed explanations. Our policy guidelines below come under advice from a legal team of experts.
In other words, because the detailed guide below is not just our ideas and voice (the language can be a bit 'legalese', i.e., formal and technical) we have something in plain English. Here are a couple of typical scenario explainations to what happens when you give us your name and email address.
Scenario 1. You fill in an enquiry form on one of our web pages, and you want to know about a workshop that is coming up. The workshop could be an in-person or an online course, or even a witch camp retreat style event.
What we do next. To provide you with all the relevant information you will receive from us several emails. The first might a general response and thank you for your interest in what we do. A second email might detail a current workshop, or that you are on a waiting list, or what the next events are.
Your name and email are kept on a secure email server and is never shared. When a new workshop event is offered or details in our magazine are available you will be sent the information.
Scenario 2. You ask for more information about OTHER magazine or another the publication.
What we do next. To provide you with all the relevant information you will receive several emails from us. We usually first reply with a ‘thank you’ message. The next email will tell about what we do and how you can get future copies of OTHER magazine or there might be news about other publications and courses we have available. Another email might provide a link to a free download page. If it's a physical print copy, you will order it via another ordering page, and you'd need to provide your address details.
Your name, address and email are kept on a secure email server and are never shared.
WHAT OUR FANTASTIC MEMBERS SAY
“The ritual was a truly transformational and healing experience... I experienced energy so powerful that it racked my body back and forth like a serpent. Drum rhythms I've never played before, and then I turned into a cat! I feel like I've been to voodoo land and back!”
