Information Collection and Use

We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have information that you voluntarily give us.

We will not sell, rent or share this information to anyone at any time.

We collect the following information:

E-Newsletter Sign-Up
If you sign up for the e-newsletter we will use your e-mail address to send you the e-newsletter and notices of when registration opens for group classes. It is optional to supply your first and last name. Currently, we do not use that information for anything.

Blog Subscription
If you subscribe to the blog we will use your e-mail address to alert you to any new blog posts.

Blog Comments
If you leave a comment on one of our blog posts, we collect the data shown in the comments form. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment. When you leave a comment on a blog post, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year. If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

New Student Intake Form
If you are a new student, you are asked to fill out this form prior to your first lesson. We ask for your US mailing address because if the studio has any policy changes, including rate changes, current students are always notified by US mail. Also, we send out holiday cards to all current students via US mail. We will use your phone number and e-mail address to contact you if needed regarding your lessons. All other information provided on this form helps the instructor prepare for your lessons.

Security

We maintain reasonable safeguards in an effort to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of the personal information we collect.

Your Choices Regarding Your Information

You may send us an e-mail at Lauren@AlexanderTeachingStudio.com to correct or delete any personal information you have provided to us.

In addition, you can do the following:

  • At the bottom of every e-newsletter you have the option of unsubscribing or updating your e-mail address.
