Where we collect information from?
Examples may include:
How long we keep your information?
We keep information for different lengths of time dependent on the purpose. For example, we would like to keep student & teacher information beyond the length of a course so we can keep in touch about our ongoing courses, workshops, classes, and retreat and continue our relationship together and give teachers the opportunity to grow within the community.
We want to ensure that the information we collect from you is used to appropriately support our work together and considers any future dealings that you would like to have with us. For example, many people ask to receive references for their teaching. In these cases it is important we have the correct information on file. You can contact us at any time to ask us to remove or amend your information.
