Privacy Policy

Your right to privacy is important to us.

We are keen to strike a fair balance between your personal privacy and ensuring you obtain full value from the internet and other products and services we may be able to offer to you.

We shall only use any data that you submit to us during your use of this web site in strict accordance with UK legislation (currently the Data Protection Act 1998).  We don't ask for or retain any attributable or identifiable information considered to be of a 'personal' nature about you in electronic or physical records (its not that we're not interested, its just that we're busy; please don't take it personally). 

We do not collect or hold your credit or payment card details.  

Any personal financial data that you submit as a part of any payment for our products is handled entirely by our authorised secure payment services, PayPal & SagePay, using SSL secured servers. We cannot see your financial information even if we wanted to, so there is absolutely no risk that your details may be stolen from us. 

The only information that we collect from you is the minimum which is considered by UK Data Protection legislation to be appropriate for conducting a commercial transaction (your name and address, email address and telephone number if applicable and details of the products that you purchased and when).   We are not therefore registered as data controllers. However we do abide by the data protection principles of good information handling set out by the UK Information Commissioner.  Further information on the Act is on the internet at www.informationcommissioner.gov.uk.  We use the data protection padlock symbol to show when we gather personal data from you. Look out for it on the site. Its quite nice.

A more detailed explanation about how we safeguard your information is described below. If you have any questions, please contact us at info@notionltd.com

Resale or disclosure of information to third parties

Notion Ltd. never has and never will sell or pass on any personal information to third parties.  That would be stupid.

Cookies policy 

  • What is a cookie?

Cookies are used to improve your experience on the web by e.g. remembering your passwords, enabling you to set the size of text, or making it easy to add items to a shopping cart. Analytics cookies which track your behaviour across a site without identifying you in anyway are collected to help website owners understand what works well on the site and what could be improved.

Cookies are small text files that are stored on the hard drive of your computer / device so that when you visit a site again it remembers whether you have been there before and what your preferences were. Some cookies are only temporary and are deleted at the point you close your browser. Other cookies are stored for longer. Some cookies are designed to track your behaviour and remember what you have been searching for or looking at online in order to be able to tailor specific content to you when you visit the site again. The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has produced a guide for website owners (ICC UK Cookie guide) about the use of cookies and this site adheres to the guidance provided by them.

Category 1: strictly necessary cookies:

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies services you have asked for, like shopping baskets or e-billing, cannot be provided.

Category 2: performance cookies:

These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works. By using our website you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device.

Category 3: functionality cookies

These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. By using our website you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device.

Category 4: targeting cookies or advertising cookies: (we do not use category 4 cookies)

These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.

  • How we use cookies?

We only use cookies that enable us to improve your experience using our site or that provide services which you have directly requested (such as logging in to our secure area). We collect anonymous site usage statistics using cookies through Google Analytics which do not identify who you are. These statistics are aggregated so that we can look at ways of improving our website and how it works. We do not use cookies that share your information or activity with third parties.

Session Information collected

Web statistics such as IP addresses and duration of sessions are collected purely to enable Notion Ltd. to assess the use of its site and to implement improvements.

Email lists

Notion Ltd. maintains mailing lists for keeping our customers and interested parties informed about products and services we offer as well as passing on valuable tips and news.  Requesting tips and guides from our web pages automatically joins a customer to our mailing list.  Other interested parties must request to join through our website.  An individual’s email address on the mailing list is kept hidden from all other users on the list. Only authorised Notion Ltd staff have access to the mailing list email addresses.

Opt Out options

Our mailing lists are not high traffic nor are they intended as spam.  You will only receive messages from us because you have agreed with us that you'd like to receive them.  We consider (and have been told quite often) that they contain valuable information for our customers, members and those interested in the whole area of coaching and business growth.  Should (sadly) you wish to opt out from receiving future mails from us, simply reply to any of our emails with the subject line “unsubscribe from this list”.  Please note that we operate a number of different lists, and unsubscribing from one might not unsubscribe you from another (where you have signed up for more than one campaign for example). 

If you have arrived at the tragic decision to sever all connections with us and really don't want to hear from us again, then please reply to any of our emails with the subject line "unsubscribe - all". After Julia has recomposed herself and sorted out her make-up, she will thoroughly delete you from our systems.

Updating information

If you need to update information you have provided to Notion Ltd, please send an email to info@notionltd.com
