What Are Cookies?
How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?
IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as traffic data so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you.
Sharing and Selling Information
We do not share, sell, lend or lease any of the information that uniquely identify a subscriber (such as email addresses or personal details) with anyone except to the extent it is necessary to process transactions or provide services that you have requested.
How Can You Access and Correct Your Information?
You may request access to all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain in our database by emailing us at the usual address. You can also access and amend or delete the information about you held by Mailchimp on a link provided on a Mailchimp mailing from us.
What About Legally Compelled Disclosure of Information?
We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights. We may also disclose account information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Terms of Service or to protect the safety of our users and the Public.
What About Other Web Sites Linked to Our Web Site?
We are not responsible for the practices employed by Web sites linked to or from our Web site or the information or content contained therein. Often links to other Web sites are provided solely as pointers to information on topics that may be useful to the users of our Web site.
Our Commitment To Data Security
Please note that your information will be stored and processed on our computers in England and in USA at www.mailchimp.com.

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
Choice to Opt-In/Opt-Out
We treat customers’ right to opt-out of receiving e-mailings from us very seriously. This site allows visitors to unsubscribe so that they will not receive future messages. This is done through clicking on a link specially provided at the bottom of our bulk e-mailings, eg newsletters or e-mails informing you of forthcoming events or other activities that we think might be of interest. You can also unsubscribe by replying to the email address of the sender with “unsubscribe” in the subject line. After unsubscribing we will discontinue sending all e-mails and newsletters as soon as technically feasible. This discontinuation will not only include any newsletter you have previously been receiving but all other newsletters and other types of mailings. If you don’t want to receive this sort of material, we don’t want to send it to you.
A Special Note About Children
Children are not eligible to use our services unsupervised and we ask that children (under the UK legal age of consent of 16) do not submit any personal information to us. If you are a minor, you can use this service only in conjunction with permission and guidance from your parents or guardians. In addition, as stated in our Terms and Conditions, we do not knowingly deliver our coaching services to those under the age of 18.
Acquisition or Changes in Ownership
In the event that the web site (or a substantial portion of its assets) is acquired, your information would be considered part of those assets, and may be part of those assets that are transferred. We would inform you that such a transfer was taking place, so that at the point of transfer you have the opportunity to unsubscribe.
