2.0 Relevant Legislation

- UK Data Protection Act 1988 (DPA)
- EU Data Protection Directive 1995 (DPD)
- EU General Data Protection Regulation 2018 (GDPR)
This site’s compliance with the above legislation, all of which are stringent in nature, means that this site is likely compliant with the data protection and user privacy legislation set out by many other countries and territories as well.

3.0 Personal Information that we collect and why we collect it
Should you choose to contact Alchemy Woman using the contact form on the Contact us page none of the data that you supply will be stored by this website or passed to/be processed by any of the third party data processors defined in section 6.0. Instead the data will be collated into an email and sent to Alchemy Woman over the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP).
Alchemy Woman’s own SMTP servers are protected by TLS (sometimes known as SSL) meaning that the email content is encrypted using SHA-2, 256-bit cryptography before being sent across the internet. The email content is then decrypted by our local computers and devices. However, not all mail servers are secured in such a way. Therefore, Alchemy Woman would advise you always consider email as an insecure medium and not include personal, confidential or otherwise sensitive information within an email.
4.0 How Alchemy Woman stores your personal information
If you contact Alchemy Woman via the Contact Us page your details will be used by Alchemy Woman to respond to your query and any subsequent communication. Your data will not be passed to or processed by a third party. You may request that your information be removed from Alchemy Woman’s systems in writing.
