In case you didn’t know…
There is a law all about cookies and protecting your data which you can read more about on the ICO website if you are so inclined. They also have details of the rules for something called GDPR or “General Data Protection Regulations”. They both lengthy and boring.
The short version of it is that we need to tell you about our cookies and about how we use your data.
How Revive uses your personal information
As a UK company, we already protect your data to EU standards, so this just updates our side as required.
For us, this is not just about the letter of the law, but the spirit that’s intended – namely, we are in the business of providing you with natural health information so you can live your life to the fullest.
We are not in the business of selling, sharing or misusing any data you share with us – we will also take every step we can to protect your data from unauthorised access.
At Revive we take our clients and readers confidentiality seriously.
My basic rule of thumb is “I will treat you information the exact same way I would want mine treated.” So whilst I do use contact details that you give me to send marketing and free health information to you, I give you ways to unsubscribe if you wish.
I don’t share your name, phone number, email address etc with other people. If you know anything about Revive and the way we operate, then you know integrity is a huge part of our philosophy. Those standards apply here too.
If you send an email to me, or if you use the ‘contact’ page you may wonder what happens to your details.
Actually, it is very simple. In both cases I see an email from you in my inbox. I will reply to that email, if a reply is needed.
If you sign up for a free course, product, or seminar that information goes to Active Campaign, Wuffo or Click Funnels to allow me to send emails to you.
What if you enquire about me helping you with a health issue?
In that case you go on my database and I will follow up with you as needed. I also use email marketing so I may add you to my email list where you will receive emails about natural health, our podcast’s, testimonials etc , which is the same if you have opted in, (I use Active Campaign just now). If you don’t want emails from me in the future then all you have to do is not tick the box when you contact me unsubscribe when I send you an email – there is always an unsubscribe link at the bottom.
What information is being collected?
The information collected when you opt in to a webinar, emails, or sign up to a free course will be your name, email address and phone number. If however, during a free course where you are looking for help with a health condition you fill out one of our health questionnaires, we will also hold that data for our records so should you contact us or vice versa in regards to maybe being able to solve your health issues, we have already have a basic understanding of your health problems.
Who is collecting it?
We are. However we do use Active Campaign for sending emails to our list, Click Funnels for online courses and Opt In’s, and, Wuffo for the digital forms to collect your information. Your details will therefore go into their systems, but rest assured they all have their own privacy policies in place to protect your data.
How is it collected?
There are a few places that you can get in to data based, or network. You might phone me. You might email me. You might message me or Revive Yourself on Facebook. You might use my contact form. You might register to view a seminar. You might opt in to a free course. You might comment on an advert or one of our videos. Yo might fill out a form at one of our seminars. You might fill in a form on another website that then sends me information. In each case I only collect what you give me. That’s usually details of your health struggles so that I can talk to you about potentially helping you overcome the issue(s) you’re struggling with.
Unless you become a one to one client this information stays on our database until it’s deleted. If you do however become a one to one client then your information is stored securely on our system.
Why is it being collected?
I keep data simply to help me to help you. If I didn’t have your phone number/name/email address I couldn’t contact you to talk about how we could potentially help you put your health struggles behind you.
How will it be stored?
I’ve covered this in “how is it collected” above. Essentially I keep everything on my computer. If you are a one to one client your information will also be on my phone so that I can continue to give you unlimited support. Without the system I have in place I wouldn’t be able to do such a smooth job, and, I wouldn’t be able to contact you where ever you, or, I was in the world.
Who will it be shared with?
Nobody. Except for the 3rd party companies I mentioned in “who is collecting it”. These companies are used so that I can share free information with you, whether it be through email, free mini course, a podcast interview, or, our YouTube channel. Without the use of these companies I would not be able to produce the amount of free content that we do for you, and, I wouldn’t be able to contact you should you reach out to us for help. As I made clear in “How Revive Uses Your Personal Information”, we are not in the business of selling, sharing or misusing any data you share with us – we will also take every step we can to protect your data from unauthorised access.
What do you intend to do with it?
Nothing bad. The only thing we will do with your information is send you free content, or if you opt in for it, access to a free course, or product. If you fill out a form requesting help then we will use your contact information to reach out to you to see if and how we can help you. Other than that your personal information is stored securely.
What will be the effect of this on the individuals concerned?
Other than me being able to produce free content and information for you, and, potentially being able to reach out if you needed help, I can’t think of any.
Is the intended use likely to cause individuals to object or complain?
Not that I can see. If it were myself that signed up to receive emails, a free course, or free content then I would expect my information to be stored in a system.
How long do you intend to keep it for?
If you are on our email list or join a free course or webinar, then we will refresh our list approximately every two years. If you decide that you no longer want our content then you can opt out of our email list at any time – the unsubscribe button is at the bottom of every email we send – if you do this your information will be deleted. If you become a personal client your information will be kept securely for 6 years due to tax purposes. After that it will be destroyed.
That’s that done
(Well nearly, there’s small print to read at the bottom too)
As I say integrity is everything within the Revive way of life, and I will do my utmost to not share details that you give to us with anyone else. I hate it when it happens to me, (those telephone calls are the worst) and, I will not sell or give your information away. Trust is a huge part of what we do at Revive. The same trust that I wouldn’t break with my clients or audience over the quality of supplements I recommend, products or anything health related, will be applied here.
“But Ryan, I’m only on your site/email list because you contacted me!”
If that is the case then I was provided with your email address by somewhere such as a seminar off you, a family member, or friend that attended and it was made clear that you were happy to be contacted by myself or a member of the Revive team. Or maybe you were at a networking event with me and handed me your card to contact you – in which case you’ve probably added me to your list too! Or you’ve opted in to one of our free courses and/or webinars and you may have forgotten.
If you do not want further contact with myself or the Revive Yourself team then please simply email me and I will take you off our list, or, you can simply hit that unsubscribe link in the email which is placed at the bottom.
Also if you look at my testimonials page you’ll see videos, letters and comments written by former clients saying thank you as well as posts documenting their results. If you are kind enough to send me a testimonial letter, video, comment, or, your results based on our advice I am likely to put that up on our website, or post it on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter. Not only is it lovely to receive thank you messages that I can share, but, these messages also give hope to others who are currently living in pain with chronic health conditions. These message show them life doesn’t have to be lived in pain, and that there is a way out of that pain and into the life of their dreams.
Over the years Facebook and Google have continued to grow (and grow), as, have many of the social media platforms. I use Facebook for many things such as (but not limited to), sharing my natural health message and interacting with clients. I also use Facebook for marketing, and if you visit my website and have a Facebook user ID they will know (somehow – don’t ask me!). It’s the same if you visit your favourite online shopping store and look at a pair of shoes and they start to miraculously pop up elsewhere. I may appear on Facebook if you come to my site. Magic I know. This could also happen on Google, YouTube and Instagram, as I use adverts there too.
The other cookies we use are from Active Campaign which are present in our emails so that we can see who and how many of you are even reading them.
The only other time we gather your data is if you join one of our free online courses or sign up to a webinar or opt in to a free download. The details there are used (again) for email marketing and contacting you if you have requested a call with myself, or one of the Revive team, or if you mentioned that you would benefit from some help. My courses, webinars and opt in’s are hosted by 3rd party companies that all take data protection seriously and keep your personal information secure.
But I do not like cookies!

The small print
Ok, despite wanting to keep my privacy notice short and sweet there are some legal niceties to cover. In order to do so I went and purchased a template from a lawyer called Suzanne Dibble who specialises in this stuff. I’ve filled in the template and paste it here in all its glory for you to enjoy…

- INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS
Countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) do not always offer the same levels of protection to your personal data, so European law has prohibited transfers of personal data outside of the EEA unless the transfer meets certain criteria.
Many of our third parties service providers are based outside the European Economic Area (EEA) so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we do our best to ensure a similar degree of security of data by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is in place:
- We will only transfer your personal data to countries that the European Commission have approved as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data by; or
- Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts or codes of conduct or certification mechanisms approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe; or

- DATA SECURITY
We have put in place security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used, altered, disclosed, or accessed without authorisation.
