Additionally, as you browse the Site, information about the individual web pages that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site are also collected. This automatically-collected information is referred to as Device Information and is collected using the following technologies:

  • Cookies – data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. Visit All About Cookies for more information about cookies and how to disable cookies.

How your personal information is used

The Booking Information I collect from you is used by me to communicate with you. It is used so that I can:

  • issue an invoice for tuition

  • ensure that I am compliant with the legal requirements of HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

 

The Device Information that is collected is used to help screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimise the Site, for example, by generating analytics to help measure traffic and usage trends for the Site.
