Ticketing data - (Basically when you buy something from us…)
When you purchase a place on an after school club from us (or a birthday party), we collect:
Your Name, your child’s name, a contact number, school name, who collects the child (not needed for birthday party), any health concerns and school year.
We need this information to process registers for the clubs and we do not pass any information on to any other company or individual. All of the information submitted for this is collected via protected email addresses. It is then populated onto registers and only shared with the school your child goes to. To ensure the safety of children we make sure the school as well as us, know who is attending the club.
