The Website is owned by Share International UK (London), Share International Foundation (Amsterdam), and Share International USA (Berkeley), and operates in a sub-domain of Share International’s main website (https://www.share-international.org/). All enquiries concerning the Website should be addressed to Share International UK using the contact details at the end of this document.
The Website publishes details of public activities (lectures, workshops, video showings, discussions, etc) organized by Share International-affiliated groups in the UK. It also includes a summary of the background to Share International’s work and an explanation of Transmission Meditation, and provides a means whereby those interested in taking up Transmission Meditation may be put in touch with groups in their area already practising this form of meditation.
In accordance with data protection laws, this Policy explains what items of personal data are gathered via the Website, and how this information is used.
There are two data collection forms on the Website:
1. For matters relating to the UK Transmission Meditation Group Network (https://uk.share-international.org/transmission-meditation-network/). This form is intended for those who are seeking to join an established Transmission Meditation group in their area, and invites them to provide personal details with the aim of facilitating contact between them and any existing local groups. The form can also be used by anyone who has such an established meditation group to notify Share International UK of its existence, and to say whether or not it will accept referrals from anyone seeking to join such a group. Finally, the form can also be used to request removal from the Transmission Meditation Group Network.
This form provides the means to submit the following items of personal data:
First name, Last name, Postal address, Telephone numbers, Email address, Nearest town, Previous experience of Transmission Meditation.
2. General contact form to facilitate communication with Share International UK, as an alternative to post and telephone (https://uk.share-international.org/contact/).
This form invites the site visitor to submit the following items of personal data:
