What data we have

Mailing list information
If you’ve subscribed to our online mailing list on our website or asked to be added to the mailing list by email we hold your name and email address and any other relevant information you have provided about courses that may interest you.

You can choose to opt out of receiving emails at any time by replying to the email received or emailing and putting Unsubscribe in the subject heading.

We do not under any circumstances trade or sell our mailing list.

Course bookings and payment details
If you’ve booked on a course we have records of bookings made online through our website and payments made through PayPal and our bank account and any emails received from you confirming details and attendance.  Information may include email address, phone number and postal address so that we can contact you with information about the course and send you your Fight Performance Test certificate if this has not been provided on the day of the examination. Following the course the information is archived so that we have proof of your attendance and payment for our tax purposes.

Health and safety medical waivers
In order to meet the health and safety requirement of training we hold your name, name of parent or guardian if under 18, name and phone number of your emergency contact and course waivers / medical information provided to us in order to deliver training to you. The information is collected in person at a course and is made available to our teaching staff for its duration and thereafter it is destroyed.

Photo waivers
We may take photographs and videos at Stage Fight Scotland workshops for advertising and marketing purposes. In both of these circumstances we ensure that all students recorded or photographed give written approval of their image being taken and used by signing a waiver prior to commencement of the workshop.  Any individual has a right to refuse to give consent to the use of photographs and/or videos containing their image and/or performance for Stage Fight Scotland purposes.  The waivers remain in our possession for as long as the photos and videos are being used.

Fight Performance Test (FPT) details
Stage Fight Scotland teaches courses according to the syllabus of the British Academy of Stage and Screen Combat (BASSC) and all FPTs are examined by a member of the BASSC Board of Examiners.  After every examination takes place, we collect and store an electronic copy of the Fight Performance Test (FPT) Result Sheet outlining: date and place of the exam, teacher and examiner names, number of students, weapons taught, student names and the result of their exam.  A second copy is sent to the BASSC as the examining body for their records.  See for the BASSC Privacy Policy.

If no Examiner is available to adjudicate a Fight Performance Test in person, then a video examination will take place.  In such cases, the video remains with the Examiner for up to 30 days to allow the adjudication to take place and is deleted once that is completed.

Data storage
Your data is stored in a password protected database on a secure server and is not used for any other purposes other than stated above.

We do not collect cookies, do not use Google analytics, and in no way do we track or attempt to track persons visiting our website
