The only data retained by the Centre are the contact details provided in writing by those wishing to register as Members, Associates, students or enquirers. These details are automatically weeded from the active database after a pre-set period of inactivity, and a similar weeding process is also conducted annually to remove inactive or invalid data. All registration data are held in an address book on a private computer database and securely stored on Apple’s US-based servers at iCloud.com. All such data are used solely for the lawful purposes and administration of the Centre and will never be divulged to any third party without explicit authority. As a community service, the Dhyana Centre is strictly ‘non-trading’; it has no paid staff and no commercial links or financial connections of any type. Data held by the Centre are also separate from information held by the Theosophical Society in England, of which the Centre is a self-governing branch, but there is an occasional interflow of details regarding Centre Members who have also become fellows of the Theosophical Society.
Those registered may request to unsubscribe at any time and a link for this purpose is included in the footer of every circular email. Unsubscribing will entail immediate deletion of the data record for that person.
Alternatively, those registered may request to view and/or amend their personal details. Any such request should be made by email to the Centre Director (Data Controller) at firstname.lastname@example.org and will be actioned within 48 hours of receipt.
This website is hosted on UK-based servers by SiteGround and employs Google Analytics which records user information automatically and anonymously (with the data retention period set at the lowest level ie. 14 months). The Centre does not employ ‘social media’ in any shape or form.
