Learn To Dance Privacy Policy

Who we are

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

As standard we do not collect any personal data other than provided to us, by you, in the form of contact forms & emails.

Our online booking system requires you to enter personal data to complete your booking.  This is retained so that we can contact you about your booking unless you ask us not to.

Information entered into registration forms that have either been completed manually, or via email correspondence, is maintained to ensure our compliance with data regulations, unless you ask us not to.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service Privacy Policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

Our online contact form asks just for your name and email address.  These are retained to allow us to respond to your enquiry, and to review the history of a conversation.  They are not used for marketing purposes unless you enter them in the Newsletter Sign-up form, or select that option on our registration form.

We do also accept verbal requests to be added to marketing and you acknowledge that you are able to unsubscribe from these at any time.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select "Remember Me", your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


We use Google analytics to monitor visitors to our site.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Emails and contact form entries are stored indefinitely.  This is so that we can recognise and follow up on previous correspondence.

You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
