Privacy Policy

This website is owned and operated by Jack Bryce trading as Jack Bryce – Elite Magician

I am committed to protecting and respecting your privacy in line with the new EU-wide Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

This document explains how and why I use the information you have given me and how I keep it secure. GDPR also enables you to have more rights and much more control over your personal data. Read on to find out more.

Links to other websites
My website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave my site, you should note that I do not have any control over those other websites. Therefore, I cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.

1. How I collect information from you
I collect information about you when you contact me about the products and services I offer. This is normally only limited to your name, email address and phone number, which I will use to contact you with information about the products or services you have enquired about. I also collect limited information when you visit my website via cookies. These help me improve and personalise my site. I have explained more about both in sections 2 and 3 below.

2. What are cookies and how do I use them
Most websites use cookies in some way. Cookies are small pieces of code that work in the background to help website owners measure how visitors interact with website content.

The only cookie set on my site is my social media widget Facebook. This enables visitors to engage with me on Facebook direct from my site. This cookie will not contain personally identifiable information about you. If you prefer, you can easily turn cookies off in your browser settings:

3. How I handle information collected when you contact me about products or services.
GDPR requires all businesses to have a lawful basis to process personal data about a customer/prospective customer. The law sets out six different lawful categories to choose from.

Business owners have to explain to you how and when we process your data and the legal basis for each occurrence. Currently my processing fits into three of the six available categories.

‘Contractual’ Basis - This is when processing your data is obvious and necessary, for example you submit an enquiry and ask me to get back to you or you contact me to book me for an event or book me for a show. Please be assured, I will only use this data for the purposes of offering relevant services to you.

Legitimate Interests’ Basis - I may contact you again after I have provided my services. For example: I may email you in the future to remind you about my services. The law says businesses cannot send marketing emails or texts to individuals without specific consent. However, there is a limited exception if you are a previous customer as long as I only contact you about the same or similar products. The jargon for this is ‘soft opt-in’ - so no affirmative consent is required. That said, I will always give you the opportunity to say please don’t contact me again.

‘Legal Obligation’ Basis - Some processing is necessary because I have to comply with the law. For example, when you hire my services. HMRC require me to keep records for at least 5 years.

4. Security of your data
