More generally, we will use your personal data for the following purposes:

Your marketing preferences


We will always respect your wishes in respect of what type of communications you want to receive from us and how you want to receive them. There are some communications, however, that we need to send you regardless of your marketing preferences in order for us to fulfil our contractual obligations to you once you have made a booking. Examples of these essential service communications are:


·      Records of transactions such as payment receipts

·      Class/workshop/party related mailings such as renewal reminder and information about courses/camps requirements.


You are in control of how we communicate with you. You can update your choices and/or your contact details by contacting us at:

Sharing your information with others

We do not sell or share your personal data for other organisations to use other than as set out below.


Personal data collected and processed by us may be shared with the following third parties, where necessary:


·      Our employees / teachers, for the purposes of administering and running your classes / workshops.


How long your information is kept:


We keep your personal data only for as long as necessary for each purpose we use it. For most booking data, this means we retain it for a period of five years after your last interaction with us (for accounting, tax reporting and record-keeping purposes).


Your rights


Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:


  • Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

  • Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.

  • Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).

  • Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes.

  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal data about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it. You can also withdraw your consent, where this is the basis for our processing your data (without affecting the lawfulness of our previous processing based on consent).

  • Request the transfer of your personal data to another party.


Please note that the above rights are not absolute, and we may be entitled to refuse requests where exceptions apply.
