Marketing - emails

We use an op-in system for collecting names and email addresses for our newsletter marketing.

This information is stored by a 3rd Party (Mailerlite).

We are committed to making it as easy as possible for you to unsubscribe. 

Every marketing email we sent contains opt-out instructions.

If you opt-out Mailerlite removes you from the list.

We do not store marketing email addresses or names anywhere outside Mailerlite.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. 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.

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.

CCTV

Our language school building has CCTV (film – no sound) to protect the property and the clients using the property.

Please be aware of this before booking.

CCTV footage will always be shared with police on their request. If we have reason to believe a crime has occurred we will also initiate sharing CCTV footage with authorities.

Requests for our CCTV footage MUST be made through the police.

Our CCVT footage is stored for a month, and not published or disseminated in any other way.
