MiSP Privacy Notice

Who we are

At Mindfulness in Schools Project we value our friends and associates and respect your rights to privacy. We endeavour to keep your data safe at all times, this policy explains how we do this.

The type of data we collect and use

We collect data in a number of different ways and for several different reasons. Please find below a list of the places we store data, the type of data we store and the ways in which we use it.

Please note that if you choose, for any reason, not to allow us to use your personal data (as is your right) it may result in a less efficient or accurate service to you.

Booking a MiSP course or event

When you complete a website application form to attend a MiSP training course or event you will be asked to provide personal information. By supplying this information you are consenting to MiSP holding and using this information until the end of the training course. At the end of the training we will continue to hold personal information but only if you have agreed to this by ticking the box on the application form stating ‘I’d like to be kept up to date once I have trained so I can learn about additions to the HUB, MiSP news and events, SIT groups and further training with MiSP’.

Personal information collected and/or processed by us will be held in accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 2018.

Website Cookies

Cookies are simple text files that typically contain two pieces of information: a site name and unique user ID. When you visit a site that uses cookies for the first time, a cookie is downloaded onto your computer. The next time you visit that site, your computer checks to see if it has a cookie that is relevant (that is, one containing the site name) and sends the information back to the site. The site then ’knows’ that you have been there before, and in some cases, tailors what pops up on screen to take account of that fact. As a rule, cookies will make your browsing experience better. However, you may prefer to disable cookies on this site and on others. The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser. We suggest consulting the Help section of your browser or taking a look at the About Cookies website which offers guidance for all modern browsers.

Google Analytics

When someone visits our website we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is anonymous and we do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

Mailing Lists

We collect email addresses in order to let you know about upcoming events and courses, special offers and other MiSP-related news. We do not rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.

We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our emails. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks to help us monitor and improve our emails. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing us at enquiries@mindfulnessinschools.org.

Ticketing Data

We use a third-party online system, Eventbrite, to book tickets for many of our events. Eventbrite collects and stores data that can include your name and contact details depending on the sort of event you are booking. You can, of course, always contact us directly to book tickets if you prefer. Please be assured that we do not share your personal details with any other company without your consent.

Third Parties

We occasionally share anonymised information with other organisations, particularly for research purposes.
