We are LighterLife Fast2 Limited (Registered No – registered in Guernsey: 56925, VAT Registration No: 171 2714 27) whose registered address is at PO Box 20, Les Echelons Court, Les Echelons, St Peters Port, Guernsey, GY1 4AN. All references in this privacy policy to “we/our/us” refer to LighterLife Fast2 Limited (‘LighterLife Fast2) and our group companies (collectively referred to as ‘LighterLife’)

LighterLife Fast2 is the Data Controller for your personal information. We are committed to protecting your privacy and complying with the UK General Data Protection Regulation (“UK GDPR”) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (“DPA 2018”).

Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us, and our privacy policy explains what information we gather about you and how we use it. LighterLife will always aim to be transparent about how we process personal data. We may update our privacy policy from time to time, and we’ll put the date of the most recent revisions on this page, so please check it before sending us any personal information.



“Personal data” is any information about you and which could identify you.

“Special categories of personal data” includes information about your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, genetic data, biometric data, health data, sex life or sexual orientation.

“Processing” means any use of your personal data e.g. collecting, recording, storing, amending, disclosing, retrieving or destroying it.

“Data controller” is the person or body who, alone or with others, is in charge of how and why your personal data is processed.

“Data processor” is the person or body who processes your personal data for the data controller.

“Application” means the hardware or software which collects your personal data, so for us this includes the LighterLife FAST website and members area.

“User” means you, the person using an application.


Information we gather and track

We collect and process a range of personal data.  We collect it in several different ways, including when you’re accessing or signing up to our services, registering for a promotional  event, conference or webinar,  and accessing our online content.

These are the general categories of personal data we may collect and process about you, depending on the purpose:

  1. Profile data – for example, your name or gender.
  2. Contact data – for example, your email address, postal address, land line or mobile number.
  3. Details of your visits to our website, registration and authentication, the pages you view and content you access to download.  Please see our section on LighterLife applications below.
  4. Usage data – this is information collected automatically from applications (or third-party services employed by LighterLife Fast2), for example IP addresses or domain names of the computers you use, length of time spent on each page.
  5. Information about your previous purchases of our products and services, your billing information, information about events you have attended.
  6. Correspondence data – for example, email, telephone conversation notes, live chat, surveying, complaints, letters, and feedback you have given us.
  7. Telephone data – to help improve efficiency and effectiveness of some of the services provided to you by phone we may keep a record of calls that you make to us.
  8. Competition data – for example, entrants and winners via our website, social media platforms, magazines.
  9. Public relations data – for example, journalist details, client success stories and images.

When this information relates to or identifies you, it is treated as ‘personal data’.

Information we receive from third parties

We may collect information about you from third parties that we work with for the purposes of delivering to you the services that you request from us. For example, we may engage third parties for online event registration and further information requests systems; these entities will collect information directly from you on our behalf.

An application may also provide you, upon request, with additional information about particular services or the collection and processing of your personal data.



Our applications and services are not designed for use by anyone under the age of 16.

We will never knowingly ask anyone under the age of 18 to submit personal information without parental consent.


How we use your information

We use your personal information to contact you for marketing purposes where you have agreed to this; to maintain and manage your account; deliver the services you’ve requested; and enhance your experience of our services.

This includes providing you with:

  • Our services, activities or online content, and giving you information about them;
  • The most user-friendly, online navigation experience;
  • Personalised services where we analyse the information you supply, as well as your activity on our (and other) services, in order to offer you a more relevant service;
  • Information which may be of interest to you (where you consent to receiving this);

It also includes:

  • Dealing with your requests and enquiries;
  • Managing LighterLife Fast2 competitions;
  • Sending you surveys and other administrative and marketing communications;
  • Using prospecting and retargeting services provided by, for example, Google and Facebook;
  • Listening to telephone recordings in response to queries, or for training and development purposes;
  • Using IP addresses and device identifiers to identify your location, to block disruptive use, to establish the number of visits from different countries, and to determine whether you’re accessing the services from the UK;
  • Research including to evaluate issues relating to nutrition, weight loss, behaviour and fitness or to improve our products and services. This may be linked to your personal information for internal purposes only to assist you in your personal weight loss efforts;
  • Using and disclosing information in aggregate (so no individuals are identified) for marketing and strategic development purposes;

We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites you like and don’t like, based on the overall traffic to those areas. We don’t track what you read, but instead how well each page performs overall. We track search terms entered in search functions as one of many measures of what interests our users, but we don’t track which terms a particular user enters. This all helps us build a better service for you.

Contacting you for marketing purposes

We’ll only send you marketing emails or contact you where you’ve given us your consent for this.

We offer regular emails to let you know about exclusive offers, competitions, tips, weight-loss support and other exciting LighterLife information, ranging from celebrity news to business opportunities.

If these are similar to products, services and competitions previously supplied by us to you, we will assume, under our legitimate interests to promote similar goods and services, that you are willing to receive this information unless you tell us otherwise.

We may personalise the message content based upon any information you’ve given to us and your use of our applications.

You can “opt out” of marketing communications at any time – email us at and insert “UNSUBSCRIBE” as the subject, or click on the “UNSUBSCRIBE” link at the bottom of marketing emails.

Sharing your personal information with third parties

We make contracts with other companies to obtain services on our behalf, including credit-card processing, marketing services, delivery, and conducting surveys. We provide these companies only with the information they need to perform these specific services, and they are permitted to use the information only for those purposes, or as required by law, or if you’ve agreed to any additional use or sharing of your information.

International data transfers

If we transfer any of your personal information outside the UK or EEA (European Economic Area) to an “international recipient” (e.g. where we use an off-shore, Cloud-based provider to store data), we’ll ensure that recipient complies with all applicable data-protection laws.

Any transfer of your data will be subject to adequate levels of protection that will safeguard your privacy rights and give you remedies in the unlikely event of a security breach.


How long your information is kept for

We, and any companies processing your data on our behalf, only keep information about you for as long as we need to. Our internal retention policy has varying retention periods for different categories of information, depending on our legal obligations and whether there is a commercial need, such as answering customer-account queries. When your personal information is deleted, it’s anonymised for analytical purposes.

We will remove your data from our systems at the end of the applicable data retention periods, unless we are required by current or future law to retain your personal information for a longer period.

How your information is protected

We take the security of your personal information seriously. We have internal policies and controls in place to protect personal data against loss, accidental destruction, misuse or disclosure, and to ensure data is not accessed without our authorisation.

Where we use third parties to process personal data on our behalf, they:

  • Do so under contract and on the basis of our written instructions.
  • Have a duty of confidentiality.
  • Have to implement appropriate measures to ensure the security of data.

All personally identifiable information is subject to restricted access to prevent unauthorised access, modification or misuse. Please note, however, that we may release your personal data if required to do so by law, search warrant, subpoena or court order.

While we take commercially reasonable measures to ensure the safety and security of your data, due to the inherent risks with the Internet, we are unable to warrant the absolute security of your data when using our services.

Your rights

As a data subject, you have a number of rights regarding your personal information.

You are entitled to know whether we hold personal data about you and, if we do, to have access to that personal data and request that it be corrected if it is inaccurate. You can also choose to manage the marketing communications you receive by using opt-out mechanisms in emails we send to you. In such cases, we will retain the minimum personal data necessary to record that you opted out, in order to avoid contacting you again.

Subject access requests

You have the right to make a subject-access request. If you do so, we’ll tell you:

  • Whether or not your data is processed and if so, why, the categories of personal data concerned, and the source of the data if it’s not provided directly by you.
  • To whom your data may be disclosed, including any recipients outside the EEA and safeguards apply to such transfers.
  • For how long your personal data is stored (or how that period is decided).
  • Your rights to have your data corrected or erased, or to restrict or object to its processing.
  • Your right to complain to the Information Commissioner if you think we’ve failed to comply with your data-protection rights.
  • Whether or not we carry out automated decision-making, and the logic involved in any such decision-making.

We’ll also provide you with a copy of the personal data that is being processed. This will normally be in electronic form if you’ve made a request electronically, unless you agree otherwise. If you want additional copies, we’ll charge a fee based on the administrative cost of doing this.

We normally respond to a request within one month of the date we receive it. In some cases, such as where we process large amounts of your data, we may respond within three months of the date we receive your request; we’ll write to you within one month of receiving your original request if this is the case.

If a subject-access request is manifestly unfounded or excessive (i.e. one which repeats a request we have already responded to), we don’t have to comply with it, but we will let you know that this is the case. Alternatively, we can agree to respond but will charge a fee based on the administrative cost of doing so.

To obtain a copy of the personal data we hold about you, please write to us at:

Privacy Co-ordinator, LighterLife Fast2 Ltd, PO Box 20, Guernsey, GY1 4AN, enclosing your postal details and proof of identification (a copy of your driving licence or passport, signed and dated by you).

Other rights

You also have a number of other rights over your personal data. You can request that we correct inaccurate data and that we stop processing any data that is inaccurate or if there is a dispute about whether or not your interests override LighterLife Fast2’s legitimate grounds for processing it.

You can also request that we stop processing, or erase, any data:

  • That is no longer necessary.
  • If your interests override our legitimate grounds for holding or processing it (where we rely on our legitimate interests as a reason for holding or processing data).
  • If processing it is unlawful.

Send your request to In some cases, we may need to ask for proof of identification before we can process it. We’ll let you know if we need to verify your identity and the documents required for doing so.

The Right to Complain

  3. Postal address: Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF.

What is the legal basis which allows us to use your information in a certain way?

Legitimate purpose

We collect and use your personal information for the legitimate business purposes of communicating with you to deal with your enquiries, fulfilling your requests for products, services and information, sending you communications which you have requested, notifying you of changes to our services, processing payment from you where applicable and monitoring behaviour on our website to improve your browsing experience, help us to improve our website and make our marketing campaigns more relevant.


In those cases where we need your consent to process your information, we will ask you to make a positive indication (e.g. to tick a box or insert your contact details on the relevant form or web page requiring consent). By actively providing us with your consent, you are stating that you have been informed as to the type of personal information that will be processed, the reasons for such processing, how it will be used, for how long it will be kept, who else will have access to it and what your rights are as a data subject and that you have read and understood this privacy policy.

Who will the information be shared with?

In connection with any application, request or enquiry you make, your information will be passed directly to the relevant business unit within LighterLife and nowhere else.

By submitting your personal information through this website, you are consenting to it being processed in the manner described above.

We will not share your personal information with any third party, outside of LighterLife, that intends to use it for direct marketing purposes, unless we have specifically informed you and you have given us specific permission to do this.

We may use third parties, like service providers, agents or contractors to provide support and administration assistance for the internal operations of our websites, event registration systems, applications and online advertisements.

These third parties may come into contact with your personal information in the course of providing their services to us. They must provide equivalent levels of security for your personal information as LighterLife and, where required, are bound by a legal agreement to keep your personal information private, secure and to process it only on the specific instructions of LighterLife.

Where might we transfer your information outside the UK?

The systems that we use to store your information are based in the UK or the European Economic Area. If we need to transfer your personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area, we will ensure that such transfers are compliant with the UK GDPR and DPA 2018. Appropriate measures will be put in place to keep your personal data secure.

LighterLife applications

Many features available through our applications don’t require you to register your personal information with us. However, if you’re interested in obtaining information, products or services from us or in participating in certain activities through our applications, you may need to give us some personal information – for example, to enable us to process an online shop order that you’re placing.

We use cookies and other tracking tools to identify you, remember your preferences and provide the services you require; owners of third-party services used by any of our applications may also do this.

You are responsible for any personal data of third parties that you obtain, publish or share through an application and you must confirm that you have the third party’s consent to provide this data.

Details of other personal information that we collect may be given in other sections of this privacy policy or provided alongside the specific data-collection method. We may ask you to input this data, or it may be collected automatically when you’re using an application.

We also collect non-personal data through aggregated tracking information, mainly by tallying page views throughout our websites; this allows us to better tailor our content, products and services to the needs of all our customers, including you.

Registration and authentication

By registering or authenticating your personal information with us, you allow our applications to identify you and give you access to dedicated services.

Third parties may provide registration and authentication services. When this is the case, the application may be able to access some data, stored by these third party services, for registration or identification purposes.

Linking to other websites

Our applications may contain hyperlinks to websites owned and operated by third parties. These websites have their own privacy policies about the use of personal information you submit while visiting them, so it’s a good idea to review them. We don’t accept any responsibility or liability for the privacy practices of such third party websites.


Our applications may ask for some Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp  permissions allowing them to perform actions with your Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp  accounts and to retrieve information, including your personal data, from it. This includes:

  • Using Facebook Authentication (Meta Platforms, Inc.) – a registration and authentication service provided by Facebook which is connected to the Facebook social network.
  • Access to “Basic information” – by default, this includes some of your personal information, including ID, name, picture, gender and where you live. Some of your connections, such as Friends, are also available. The more of your Facebook data you’ve made public, the more information will be available to our applications.
  • Access to “About me” – provides access to the “About Me” section of your profile.
  • Access to “Contact email” – provides access to your contact email address.
  • Access to the Facebook account: this allows our applications to connect with your account on the Facebook social network.
  • Facebook Like button and social widgets (Meta Platforms, Inc.) – these are services allowing interaction with the Facebook social network.

For more information, please refer to Facebook’s permissions documentation and privacy policy.

System logs and maintenance

For operation and maintenance purposes, an application and any third party services may collect files that record interaction with an application (system logs) or use for this purpose other personal data (such as an IP address).

Usage tracking

We track user traffic patterns throughout all our sites. While we don’t link this to data about individual users, we do break down overall usage statistics according to a user’s domain name, browser type and MIME type (i.e. identifying files on the internet according to their nature and format).
