Privacy Notice

We all care about how are own personal information is stored and used and I would like to give you assurances that I take data protection seriously. 

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will apply from 25 May 2018, when it supersedes the UK Data Protection Act 1998. The new law expands the rights of individuals to control how their personal information is collected and processed.

Where I get your data

I only ever collect data that you have freely given to me. This includes:

  • My website newsletter sign-up and/or contact form
  • People who contact me directly about courses and events
  • People who have attended a course/event and requested to be added to my mailing list.
  • People who have applied to take a course with me
  • Photographs taken during courses/events

What I keep and why I need it

I collect and store data for several key reasons:

  • In order to tell you about my courses, events and news
  • To communicate with you about courses/events that you are attending
  • Photos are used for marketing and review purposes. 

Some of the details (such as where you are based) are kept so that I can customise my messages and send the most appropriate to you.

Visitors to my website

When someone visits this website I use a third party service through my website hosting platform Sitesell, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. I do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone


I send out an newsletter via Sitesell which is to those people who have opted in via my website sign-up. You can unsubscribe easily at the bottom of each newsletter.

I also contact those people who have been in direct communication with me or who are taking or have taken a course with me through a third-party provider called Mail Chimp.  I gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies including clear gifs to help me monitor and improve my e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice.

You can unsubscribe easily at the bottom of each newsletter.


If you take a course or join a group with me I may collect additional information from you such as your email, a contact telephone number. I will explain why I am collecting this information and what I am doing with it. This is so I can stay in touch with you and communicate while  we are working together. You can always request to delete it if you wish. 


If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to get in touch. Anna Black, 60A Gloucester Gardens, London W2 6BN
