This policy sets out how I collect, use and store your personal data in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) and the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) from 25th May 2018. Magnify & Grow Business Consulting Ltd acts as a Data Controller for the purposes of the DPA & GDPR (registration ref: ZA355718).
By using this website and/or my services, you agree to the storing and processing of your data as below.
How do I use your data?
I use your personal and business data in the following ways:
- to make contact with you
- to carry out agreed services
- to invoice you for payment
- to send you updates and newsletters where you have agreed to receive them
How do I collect your data?
When you sign up to my ‘Business blog, tips and tools’ or complete the enquiry form online or if you call with an enquiry certain details are collected from you to enable me to deal with the enquiry or arrange your initial consultation. I may also collect details from you in other ways, for example, if you communicate with me via my social media accounts, enter a competition or reply to a specific promotion.
If you book a consultation online using https://ali-rice.youcanbook.me you will be taken to the YouCanBookMe site, which is fully compliant with European privacy and data regulations (GDPR). See more here.
How do I keep your data secure?
Although I will do my best to protect your data once it is received I cannot guarantee the security of data whilst you send it to me. Password protection is used for all computers, computer software, tablets and other such technology that I use. Payment is made via BACS and therefore your payment details are not stored by me.
If you provide me with any physical paperwork that contains personal or sensitive data that is not available in the public domain, I will ensure it is kept in a locked file.
What if you want to change the data that is held?
I will review the data I hold at regular intervals. Should you wish to change the data I hold for you, you should email firstname.lastname@example.org or write to Magnify & Grow Business Consulting Ltd, 2b Church Lane, Fenstanton, Cambridgeshire, PE28 9JW.
What if you want to access the data I hold for you?
If you need to access a copy of the data I hold, you should email email@example.com or write to Magnify & Grow Business Consulting Ltd, 2b Church Lane, Fenstanton, Cambridgeshire, PE28 9JW. There is no charge for this request.
How can you withdraw consent for me to hold and process your records?
If you wish to withdraw consent for me to hold and process your data for a particular purpose, you should email firstname.lastname@example.org or write to Magnify & Grow Business Consulting Ltd, 2b Church Lane, Fenstanton, Cambridgeshire, PE28 9JW.
How can you raise a complaint?
In the unlikely event you should have a complaint regarding your data, please contact me straight away and I will work with you to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction. If you are still not happy, you have the right to contact the Information Commissioner’s Office.
How do you opt in/out of receiving information?
If you provide me with your details for the purpose of making an enquiry, booking a consultation or receiving a service, I will also ask if you are happy for me to contact you via post, email, phone or text message with information such as new services and special offers. If you consent to receive general marketing information but later change your mind, you can opt out by contacting me. You can also click ‘unsubscribe’ at the bottom of any emails and I will then update your account preferences.
Will your data be passed onto third parties?
I will not pass your data on to any third party unless in the very unlikely event that legal proceedings should require me to do so in which case I will have a duty to comply with the law.
This site may contain links to other sites and should you choose to follow a link to another site, this privacy and data protection policy will no longer apply. Please check the policies of any third party to ensure you are happy with the way they will collect and use your data.

I also use Google Analytics, a very commonly used website statistics service, to gather information about the traffic to my site and to measure conversions and sales. Cookies generate information about visitors’ behaviour (but cannot identify you personally) and this is collected by Google and in turn used by me to understand my visitor’s use of the site.
