Last updated: 24/05/18

The purpose of this notice is to explain how Yoga Bananas® collects and uses your personal information and how we comply with data protection law. We respect the privacy of our graduates and website users and this Privacy Policy demonstrates our commitment to protecting their privacy. 


In this notice, we will explain what personal information we hold, and your rights regarding this information. It’s important that you read it carefully, together with any other privacy notices and information that we provide you, from time to time. By using our website, you are accepting the terms described in this Policy.


Information Collection And Use

While using our Site, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to your name and email address ("Personal Information"). We may use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials.


We receive personal information about you in one of three ways, all of which are information you provide:


Firstly, when you completed a booking form to sign up to a Yoga Bananas® course. Secondly, from information you have inputted or shared on our website. Thirdly, from contacting us by email, where you would have been asked if you would like to be added to our contact list. This includes identifiable information such as your name and contact details.

We store only very basic personal information supplied to us on the booking form or on the Site, We do not store any payment details. Payments are made either through Paypal or personally by you by bank transfer. We do not store any other personal information unless you have willingly added this in a sign-up form. We store your information to perform a contract we have with you, e.g. where Yoga Bananas has a contract with a student to provide a product or service ("Teacher Training").

Your data is always stored securely, and will never be passed to anyone outside Yoga Bananas (except Yoga Alliance Professionals - see Third Party below). And of course you can call a halt to our emails whenever you like simply by clicking the unsubscribe link in any of our messages. Yoga Bananas uses Mailchimp for newsletters.

You are in your rights to complain to the ICO if there’s a problem with the way we handle your data.

Use of Your Personal Information If You Are A Graduate

We need to store your personal information to maintain a log of past recipients and to monitor the Terms of Use Agreement signed by each student at the time of booking. What makes Yoga Bananas® unique is that it is preserved for the graduates and maintaining the integrity of the brand is good for all of us. For graduates of any of our courses we publish your personal information on to uphold transparency and advertise your services as a qualified Yoga Bananas® teacher for your area, which graduates agree to when signing the Terms of Use Agreement at the time of booking.


Whilst the Teachers' Directory listing is active, it is requested that the graduate contacts Yoga Bananas® if any of their details change or a website becomes active: If you no longer teach any part of the Yoga Bananas® Technique then you can opt out of this service by contacting

The information we hold about you is that which you have inputted on your booking form and/or any updates you may have requested us to make to your identity and contact data. No financial data is held.
