Our Privacy Policy

@Toolerstone is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

This Policy explains when and why we collect personal information about those who visit our website and how we use it.

We may change this Policy from time to time so please check this page occasionally to ensure that you’re happy with any changes. By using our website, you’re agreeing to be bound by this Policy.

Who are we? 

@Toolerstone is a provider of workshops and courses which typically take place on site at our business address. Any questions regarding this Policy and our privacy practices should be sent by email to [email protected]

How do we collect information from you? 

We obtain information about you when you use our website, for example, when you contact us about courses and workshops or if you call us to discuss these.

If you choose to subscribe to our database we may email, typically never more than 12 times a year, to tell you about new products and services. You will get an option to unsubscribe at the end of these emails, alternatively you can ask us directly on email ([email protected] ) or call us on 01606 252399.  In the past, you have given us explicit consent to send such emails and therefore we do not need to contact you again to confirm you still wish to continue receiving them.

When you pay for a workshop course directly through our website we do not collect or retain any information relating to your payment details, this is all done through a third party secure payment gateway.

Any ‘pay offline’ payments you make to us via BACS, online bank transfer or by cheque are recorded by our bank - we do not control their own data collection and storage policies and security, however we are happy with their policy at the time of writing this policy.

What type of information is collected from you? 

The personal information we collect, store and use might include your name, address, email address, IP address, phone and information regarding the pages you access on our website and when. We may also retain information regarding past correspondence when you have previously enquired about our courses and services, as well as any other information you choose to send us.

We may also collect information about your computer and use of this website, as well as any information relating to transactions carried out between you and us including in relation to bookings made or vouchers purchased.

We may transfer your personal information to a third party as part of a sale of some or all of our business and assets to any third party or as part of any business restructuring or reorganisation, or if we’re under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation or to enforce or apply our terms of use or to protect the rights, property or safety of our supporters and customers.

Security of your personal data

  • We will not share any of your personal information with any other organisations for any purposes and we don’t pass on your details to other websites.
  • We will store all the personal information you provide on secure servers.

When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. When you are on a secure page, a suitable notification will be shown by your web browser (e.g. Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge).

Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) may be transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
