PRIVACY POLICY ​- ​PETER CLIFFORD ONLINE:

Hi, Peter Clifford here. Just like you, I care about the use of my personal information online, so it is only right that I provide you with insight into the privacy policy employed here at Peter Clifford Online. 

On this page you will find all the information about what is collected (in common with almost every other website you ever visit) about my visitors and customers and how that data is used.

I have described everything as clearly and concisely as I can and have avoided legalese where possible so you can understand it all without needing a law degree! 

I review and update the privacy policy where necessary on a regular basis and will communicate any future changes to my clients and customers.

​Particular areas of the world now require different privacy disclosures, so please read the entire policy to make sure you understand ​my ​systems fully.

WHAT I DO: 

I blog about current issues that are important to me and others, calling on my many years of experience around the world working as a social commentator, human rights and democracy defender and as an independent psychotherapist, lecturer and workshop leader. I also still do some therapy work online via Skype. 

MY COMPANY: 

​My company trades as Peter Clifford Online and the registered address is  Peter Clifford Online, International House, 24 Holborn Viaduct, London, UK, EC1A 2BN.  

Easier though to contact me through the ​Contact Me ​​​page or email me directly at peter@petercliffordonline.com
