How We Keep Your Data Secure

We are committed to protecting your personal information and adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorised access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information, username, password, transaction information and data stored.

As part of the services offered to you through our website, the personal information you provide may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA). By way of example, this may happen if any of the computer servers used to host the website are located in a country outside of the EEA. If we transfer your personal information outside of the EEA in this way, we will take steps to ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this Privacy Policy.

We may transfer your data to the USA to organisations such as Facebook or Google. The USA has weaker data protection laws than that of the EEA, and therefore we will ensure that only organisations who are a part of the EU/US privacy shield initiative will handle your personal information. More details on this certification can be found at

Personal data is only stored for a period of 30 days past current use.

If you unsubscribe from marketing emails, we will keep the minimum amount of information to ensure we can adhere to such requests.

Your Rights

You have the right to withdraw consent at any time. This request should be emailed to We will remove or anonymise all stored data from all systems within 14 days. Should the right to withdraw consent relate to use of images, please include as much information and URL links as possible in order to help with the request. When dealing with a request from a child relating to any of the above rights, we will need to make a decision on whether the information should be provided to them or to their parents/legal guardian and will be guided by the individual’s age at the time of request, their level of understanding about what they are requesting, and why. For these purposes, we take the view that most children will reach this level of understanding at around age 16.

Should you believe that the Sarah Taylor Dance Studios have not acted in a fair, proper and safe manner regarding personal data, you may submit a complaint with the supervisory authority, The Information Commissioner’s Office:
