Mailing Lists

You will be asked if you would like to subscribe to our newsletter when you book onto a course, a class or if you are a client.  This will be a very obvious question that you will need to ‘opt in’, if you are interested.  You will not be subscribed by missing anything or leaving any box un-ticked.  You will never be automatically added. You can also be added to our newsletter list by adding yourself from our website home page. If you sign up for our newsletter as part of the registration process onto a  we collect personal information – your name and contact details. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about services and offers at Inspire and Rewire; to contact you if we need to let you know a class is cancelled or to share that a new and relevant is coming up.  We will always provide an opportunity to ‘opt out’ on every email and also at any time by emailing  This applies for unsubscribing from our mailing list too.  In addition there is an unsubscribe button on each of our newsletters. We don’t share or sell our email lists to other organisations and businesses.

We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter.

We may hold personal information about you to enable us to manage your appointments with us.

This is generally for keeping you updates on classes and sessions and to understand our audience.  We do not need your full postal address and so do not request this, however postcode can be useful when sharing with you events that might benefit you locally, based on your last participation with us e.g. when we run a workshop running near you. The other reason we collect data is in case of emergency if you injure yourself in a class, such as next of kin details, or doctors address and phone number.  For one to one clients we also store session outcomes for our progress working together.

You may decide to submit personal information which is of a more private nature, which we refer to as sensitive personal information, to us in order that we can for example generate a service quote or perhaps to answer or respond to your questions. For example, we may collect the following sensitive personal information, if you decide to give it to us and if we believe the processing of this data is necessary: Details regarding your physical or mental health conditions, details regarding your age, gender, ethnic origin and lifestyle information.
