Being Mindful is a limited company based in the UK. We are registered with Companies House (06969104).
Under the Data Protection Act (DPA) 1998 and the General Data Protection Regulation 2016 (GDPR) we have a legal duty to protect any personal information we hold.
What personal data do you collect, hold and process. Why do you need this data?
For subscribers to our general Mailing List, we hold only your email address. We also have a Graduate Mailing List (especially for people who have done a basic 8-week mindfulness course or equivalent): for this list we hold your name and email address. We use this information to communicate with you about our courses, events and services. We may occasionally include other information that we feel is particularly helpful and relevant for your mindfulness practice. You have the opportunity to unsubscribe at the foot of every email.
For participants in our courses, we collect further information in our registration questionnaire. We need this information to help you judge whether the mindfulness course is right for your needs, and to support you appropriately for the duration of the course. We hold this information only until the end of the course you have applied for, at which point the information is deleted.
How do you store and protect the data?
All the personal data we hold is stored using appropriate security measures.
- viewed, stored and accessed only by the Being Mindful team
- held only on password-protected devices
Do you share it with anyone else?
We will not pass your data on to third parties without your explicit consent.

You also have the right to:
- ask for mistakes or gaps in the information we hold to be corrected;
- ask for information not to be used in some circumstances;
- withdraw previously given consent to processing in some circumstances;
