What Information Do We Store and GDPR compliance?

We need a certain minimum amount of information to process your order and be able to contact you again about our courses – this means your name, your email and usually your mobile telephone number as well as which course you chose. We only take the minimum from you and we do not store it on-line longer than necessary to carry out our contract with you. We keep your records off-line, encrypted in a secure locked cabinet.

You have the right to request that any data we have should be deleted and we will comply with all requests in good time after your  course has taken place. Please use our contact form – but also see below ‘control of your data’ below, since there can be advantages of us having your data to hand.
In the case of gift certificates we need to store the data until the gift certificate has been redeemed and the tour or course taken so that we can carry out our duty to provide the course.


We never take financial information – we leave that to Papal who are experts in security.

We do not contract our website out to external web-masters who would have access to passwords etc. Our database is kept on secure servers separate from the main website and it cannot be accessed except by us through our own web-space.

What do we Use this Information For ?

We use this data to process your orders efficiently and so we can answer any enquiries you may have about your own booking(s). Once you course has been completed we keep the information as a record but this information will be taken off-line and kept in an encrypted form off-line in a secure place within one month of your order completion.
