Our privacy policy

We do not pass your email address or contact details on to anyone else. If you’ve given us an address we will only use it to send you booking information or let you know about future events.

This website doesn’t set any cookies or deposit any other information on your computer. Any information you supply isn’t stored on a webserver, so it’s never publicly accessible.

If you’ve supplied us with any information in the past and you’d like to know what we have recorded for you, or you’d like to be removed from our records, then please contact the Centre Office.

Google Analytics

What is it?

This website uses Google Analytics. The information we acquire helps us give you a better service. It’s a free tool from Google that collects information about how our site is used, information more useful than just how many “hits” we got (which doesn’t tell us much that’s useful!). If we know people are searching Google for “Yoga, Holloway”, that they get to our yoga programme page, but frequently click away immediately, we would suspect that there’s a problem with that page.

How does it work?

At the bottom of every webpage on this site there’s a mini programme that’s executed by your Web browser. This programme sends reports to Google Analytics, including the fact that the page has been visited, how long before the visitor clicked away, what Web browser was used to view the page and other data of that level.

It doesn’t collect any personal information or identify your computer to us in any way.

I don’t want that to happen. How do I make it stop?

If you don’t want your visits to create reports (in this or any other website that uses Google Analytics) it can be turned off by disabling your web browser’s ability to execute the mini programme. This means disabling JavaScript (aka JScript and ECMAScript).

Depending upon your browser and it’s version, you’ll need to do something like the following (this is a guide only):

In Internet Explorer
Go to Tools > Internet Options > Security; click Internet; scroll down to Scripting and check (tick) Disable.

In Firefox
Go to Preferences > Content and uncheck (untick) Enable JavaScript.

In Safari
Go to Preferences > Security and uncheck (untick) Enable JavaScript.

Note that permanently disabling JavaScript has broader consequences: a great many websites use it routinely and if it’s turned off, many such websites will not work properly (or at all).

Note also that most webservers automatically collect this sort of information and that it’s impossible for you to disable that. (Google Analaytics’ main advantage over standard webserver logs is that it offers better reports.)
