What information do we collect?
We may collect your name and contact information such as email address and address when you make an enquiry via our electronic contact form, or when you use our order form to order a product. We may collect other demographic information such as your preferences and interests, and how you heard about us.
Please note: non-personal and anonymous analytics data is also collected, via the third-party service, Google Analytics, to help us accurately estimate the number of visitors to the website and volumes of usage. This is further explained in our cookies policy.
What we do with the information we gather?
We require this information to understand your needs and hence respond more appropriately to your enquiries or orders.
We do not store the personal information provided, beyond responding to an enquiry or order, unless you choose to undertake a course or request further information beyond your initial enquiry. In such an instance, your details will be stored for six months in our hardcopy files or within a localised and secure, computer-based system. We will then delete this unless you have opted to be included on our mailing list (see below) or you are studying with us.
We store the information for six months so we can refer to it should you continue your email correspondence with us. If you wish for this to be deleted sooner, please contact us.
Your information will not be stored within the website or on any third-party databases.
VHF periodically sends out information on upcoming courses and workshops. On our contact form you will be given the option to ‘opt in’ to be on this mailing list. You may also email us, requesting to be added to this list. If you do so, you will be deemed to have given consent for us to hold your name and email address indefinitely, on our mailing list, for the purposes of receiving our information.
You can opt out at any time by contacting us, and your details will be deleted from the mailing list.
We do not provide any personal information to third parties outside the VHF, or use this information for any other purpose than those listed above except as in accordance with any agreement we have with you or as required by law.
We respect your right to privacy and will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998, and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2018.
