This website and its owner use any information submitted to provide you with further information about the services offered by The Moment is Now or to assist you in answering any questions or queries you may have submitted. This includes using your details to subscribe you to any email newsletter programme the website operates but only if:
- This was made clear to you and your express permission was granted when submitting any form-to-email process, or
- Where you, the consumer, have previously purchased from or enquired about purchasing from the website owner a service that the email newsletter relates to.
We will not pass your personal details to anyone else unless required to do so by court order.
(This is by no means an entire list of your user rights in regard to receiving email marketing material.)
This website operates an email newsletter programme, which may be used to inform subscribers about services supplied by this website. Users can subscribe through an online automated process should they wish to do so but do so at their own discretion. Some subscriptions may be manually processed through prior written agreement with the user.
Subscriptions are taken in compliance with UK Spam Laws detailed in the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003. All personal details relating to subscriptions are held securely and in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. No personal details are passed on to third parties nor shared with companies/people outside of The Moment is Now, the operators of this website.

Email marketing campaigns published by this website or its owner may contain tracking facilities within the actual email. Subscriber activity is tracked and stored in a database for future analysis and evaluation. Such tracked activity may include: the opening of emails, forwarding of emails, the clicking of links within the email content, times, dates and frequency of activity (this is not a comprehensive list). This information is used to refine future email campaigns and supply the user with more relevant content based around their activity.
In compliance with UK Spam Laws and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003, subscribers are given the opportunity to unsubscribe at any time through an automated system. This process is detailed at the footer of each email campaign.
Although this website only looks to include high quality, safe and relevant external links, users are advised adopt a policy of caution before clicking any external web links mentioned throughout this website. (External links are clickable text/banner/image links to other websites, for example: http://www.mindfulnessinschools.org/ or Mindfulness in Schools Project.)
The owner of this website cannot guarantee or verify the contents of any externally-linked website despite their best efforts. Users should therefore note they click on external links at their own risk and this website and its owner cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused by visiting any external links mentioned.
Adverts and sponsored links
This website may contain sponsored links and adverts. These will typically be served through our advertising partners, who may have detailed privacy policies relating directly to the adverts they serve.
Social media platforms
Communication, engagement and actions taken through external social media platforms that this website and its owner participate on are custom to the terms and conditions as well as the privacy policies held with each social media platform respectively.
Users are advised to use social media platforms wisely and communicate/engage upon them with due care and caution in regard to their own privacy and personal details. Neither this website nor its owner will ever ask for personal or sensitive information through social media platforms and encourage users wishing to discuss sensitive details to contact them through primary communication channels such as by telephone or email.
This website uses social sharing buttons which help share web content directly from web pages to the social media platform in question. Users are advised before using such social sharing buttons that they do so at their own discretion and note that the social media platform may track and save your request to share a web page respectively through your social media platform account.
Shortened links in social media
This website and its owner, through their social media platform accounts, may share web links to relevant web pages. By default some social media platforms shorten lengthy URLs (web addresses). This is an example: http://bit.ly/1qrA8y8.
Users are advised to take caution and use good judgement before clicking any shortened URLs published on social media platforms by this website and its owner. Despite the best efforts to ensure that only genuine URLs are published, many social media platforms are prone to spam and hacking and therefore this website and its owner cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused by visiting any shortened links.
