Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is


The information on this site is accurate to our knowledge at the time of publication. We try to ensure, but do not guarantee or warrant, the accuracy or completeness, availability or reliability of the information on our website. Our aim is to keep this information timely and accurate. If errors are brought to our attention, we will try and correct them.


When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service Privacy Policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


If you leave a comment on our site, 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 visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after one (1) day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who do we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights do you have over your data?

If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where is your data sent?

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Financial information relating to your credit/debit cards

When you donate through this website, your donation is handled by the payment gateway selected (Paypal | Stripe | Go Cardless). The Acosta Dance Foundation does not receive your card details, which are processed securely by our payment gateways.

Information we obtain from third parties 

Although we do not disclose your personal information to any third party (except as set out in this notice), we do receive data which is indirectly made up of your personal information from software services such as Google Analytics and others. No such information is identifiable to you.

Sending a message to The Acosta Dance Foundation

 When you send a message to us, we collect the data you have given to us in that message in order to obtain confirmation that you are entitled to receive the information and to provide you with the information you need. We record your request and our reply in order to increase the efficiency of our organisation. We may keep personally identifiable information associated with your messages, such as your name or email address, so that we can refer to it if you contact us again in future.


When we receive a complaint, we record all the information you have given us. We use that information to resolve your complaint. If your complaint reasonably requires us to contact some other person, we may decide to give to that other person some of the information contained in your complaint. We do this as infrequently as possible, but it is a matter of our sole discretion as to whether we do give information and, if we do, what that information is. If your complaint regards safeguarding issues, you can also contact our ECP’s manager at [email protected].

Job application and employment

If you send us information in connection with a job application or a volunteer role published on our website, we may keep it for up to one year in case we decide to contact you at a later date.

Email marketing and fundraising

The Acosta Dance Foundation issues regular communications via email to update our mailing list subscribers on our projects, events and fundraising activities. We also send marketing information on behalf of associated artists and or companies such as Acosta Danza (but will never share your details with them). When you sign up for our mailing list, we will add your name and email address to our database. Every marketing email you receive from us will have an unsubscribe link. Alternatively, you can write to us at [email protected] to request removal. We will retain sufficient detail on our suppression lists to help ensure we do not contact you in future.


We reserve the right to cancel events, classes and or rehearsals at short notice due to unforeseen circumstances. Thus we will make every reasonable effort to inform you via our website, social channels and or via email marketing.
