As a very small business we follow the rules of GDPR to the best of our knowledge. Please get in contact if you have noticed anything wrong.
The registration form for music lessons is hosted securely by Mailchimp and a link will be given for parents or students to register on request.
Your privacy will be respected at all times and this contact information will never be given, sold or rented to third parties for their use without your consent. By filling out the registration form, you agree for your personal information to be securely stored on Mailchimp and transferred to Theo’s Google Contacts in order to send emails directly with Gmail regarding lesson times, related news, and for invoicing (your personal data will be included on invoices).
You can opt out of receiving emails at any time by emailing Theo / TL Music Lessons. Emails or text messages are the quickest way of informing parents and students about lesson time changes, so it is quite important to remain on the list but if for any reason you would like to not be contacted by email, text or phone then you may opt out at any time by contacting Theo / TL Music Lessons.
To update your contact details and preferences, please email Theo / TL Music Lessons directly so that all information can be updated in both Mailchimp and Google Contacts.
When lessons stop, your private data will be deleted from Mailchimp and Google Contacts so that your private data is not being stored unnecessarily.
When sending emails to more than one student/parent contact using Gmail, I will always use the BCC method of sending in order to protect your email address from being seen by others. I may sometimes CC the school into emails if necessary.
Email Retention Policy
All incoming emails are received with gmail and are only stored in gmail (i.e. they are not stored on this website’s server).
All messages are Archived once dealt with. Once a year on or near April 6th, all archived sent and received emails that are older than 2 years are deleted. Emails will only be kept longer if there is a legal reason to do so.
Skype lessons will never be recorded. A parent/guardian must be present at all times during the lessons if teaching to anyone under 18.
