  • used fairly and lawfully

  • used in a way that is adequate, relevant and not excessive
  • accurate
  • kept for no longer than is absolutely necessary (written consent is required from you for removal from our database)
  • kept safe and secure
  • not transferred outside the European Economic Area without adequate protection

Information Jet Dance Academy and its franchises process

The following sections describe the information that JDA collects and how it is processed.

Legal basis for processing

The legislation requires that there is a clear legal basis for processing personal information. In general JDA relies on the individual’s consent in order to process their data. Where there are exceptions such as a legal obligation, contractual agreement or JDA’s legitimate interest, they will be noted below.

Please note that if consent is withdrawn the level of service that we can offer might be severely curtailed. You may not receive the relevant information for your child’s classes which could in turn lead to additional fees in the way of LATE payments.

Registered Students

We collect contact details (first, middle and last names of parents and students), address, contact telephone numbers, emergency contact information including medical information, class registered to and email address of parent/guardian (unless student is over the age of 18) in order to accept the student as fully registered.

That includes, but not limited to, the administration of joining and renewing registration each term, distribution of any emails relating to the student’s class or the school in general (e.g. lesson cancellations), announcing new classes, additional information on other classes, costume information, event notifications, additional workshop information, dancewear information and access to the website for payment/enrolment purposes via ClassManager.

Published on our Facebook (Jet Dance Academy page) or website

By registering on the website or on ClassManager (3rd Party Provider) parents’ are also consenting to the use of their students pictures on our social media pages unless otherwise notified by the parent/guardian. JDA instructors, with consent, are also published on our website along with a ‘Bio’ about them, their photograph and their birthday/qualification details.

E-news items

With consent, we email items of news that we believe will be of interest to our parents/students.

We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies.

Email addresses

If an email address is provided we assume consent to use it for administrative purposes of registration (e.g. notification of term class renewal, processing of examination session information, etc.).

Data Retention

Once a student lapses, we retain sufficient information to identify the previous student. This allows the previous emergency information to be used again if the student returns to our classes. JDA relies on legitimate interest as the legal basis for retaining this information. With written consent, JDA will remove any information from our database as requested.

We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone.
