How we use them

As is common practice with almost all professional websites this site uses cookies, which are tiny files that are downloaded to your computer, to improve your experience.

This page describes what information they gather, how we use it and why we sometimes need to store these cookies.

We will also share how you can prevent these cookies from being stored however this may downgrade or ‘break’ certain elements of the site’s functionality.

For more general information on cookies see the Wikipedia article on HTTP Cookies.

Disabling Cookies

We use cookies for a variety of reasons detailed below. Unfortunately, in most cases there are no industry standard options for disabling cookies without completely disabling the functionality and features they add to this site.

It is recommended that you leave on all cookies if you are not sure whether you need them or not in case they are used to provide a service that you use.

However, if you wish, you can prevent the setting of cookies by adjusting the settings on your browser (see your browser Help for how to do this).

Be aware that disabling cookies will affect the functionality of this and many other websites that you visit.

The Cookies We Set

This website does not set any cookies itself, but cookies are set by trusted ‘third-party’ applications that the website uses.

This site uses Google Analytics which is one of the most widespread and trusted analytics solution on the web for helping us to understand how you use the site and ways that we can improve your experience.

These cookies may track things such as how long you spend on the site and the pages that you visit so we can continue to produce engaging content.

As we provide a service it’s important for us to understand statistics about how many of the visitors to our site actually book a course or a free trial class. This is the kind of data that these cookies will track.

This is important to you as well because it means that we can accurately make business predictions that allow us to organise our classes and monitor our advertising in such a way to ensure the best possible price for you.

For more information on Google cookies, see the official Google privacy policy page.

Social Media and Opt-in Forms

We also use social media buttons and/or plugins on this site that allow you to connect with your social network in various ways.

For these to work, social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, Linked In and Instagram will set cookies through our site which may be used to enhance your profile on their site or contribute to the data they hold for various purposes outlined in their respective privacy policies.

We offer the opportunity for you to sign up to our newsletter and book a free trial class with a third party application that uses cookies to determine whether or not you have done so. If you have already done so, the cookie placement means it may not ask you if a second time.

You may also be interested in reading what we do with any data you give us by email and how we keep it secure in our privacy statement.

Hopefully, that has clarified things for you and as was previously mentioned if there is something that you aren’t sure whether you need or not it’s usually safer to leave cookies enabled in case it does interact with one of the features you use on our site.

However, if you are still looking for more information then you can contact us on this page.
