We will only ever use your data in the way you intended when you gave it to us. This should be explicitly clear but, if you are in any doubt at all, please ask.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When using our website, email or services you may give us personal data (name, telephone numbers, address, email adresses, photographs etc.)
We may use this information to administer our website, client databases and marketing material. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679, as adopted into law of the United Kingdom in the Data Protection Act 2018.
Yellow Dot Women collects information in two possible ways:
- When you directly give it to us (“Directly Provided Data”)
When you communicate with us, you may choose to voluntarily give us certain information – for example, by filling in text boxes or completing registration forms. All this information requires a direct action by you at that time in order for us to receive it.
- When you give us permission to obtain it from other accounts (“User Authorised Data”)
Depending on your settings or the privacy policies for other online services, you may give us permission to obtain information from your account with those other services. For example, this can be via social media or by choosing to send us your location data when accessing our website from your smartphone.
If you fill in the contact form on our website we will collect the following information:
- Your name
- Your email address
- Your message
We will only use this information to respond to your enquiry.
Customer information will be stored within our customer relationship management spreadsheet on the basis that it is in our legitimate business interest to maintain records of communications with previous, current and potential customers.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Embedded content from other websites

How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
What rights you have over your data
If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
If you have previously given us your information, but wish to be forgotten, you can do this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and asking us to remove your details.
You can also request the information we hold on you by emailing the same address.
If you think the information we have regarding you is incorrect or incomplete, please email us and we will quickly correct any information.
We will never sell, distribute or lease your personal information.
Should you wish to contact us regarding any of your personal data, please email us at email@example.com
In the event that you feel we have failed to act in accordance with your rights, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority. In the UK the authority is the Information Commissioner’s Office who can be contacted via their website: https://ico.org.uk/for-the-public/
