Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is:

The company is Stuart Walker Training Ltd and if you have any concerns about data privacy then you should contact Stuart Walker directly.

In short

I take data privacy very seriously.

I will not pass your information on to anyone that I don’t have to.

I certainly don’t sell data because I really hate that.

I may pass your data to other services such as our LMS service for the purpose of providing you with a learning platform but when I do I have checked that they are GDPR compliant.

I may use your data to send you our tip of the month, notifications about new courses or information relating to a course you’ve been on.

You can ask to see your data at any time or you can ask to be forgotten or just to have your name taken off a mailing list.

I hope you don’t want to do that but I’ll do it anyway.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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 e-mail 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.

Contact forms

We collect data that you enter onto contact forms for the express purpose of answering your query.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt in to saving your name, e-mail 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 have an account and you log in to this site, 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 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.


I use Google analytics to measure the effectiveness of my site.

I don;t use it for collecting any other data although let’s be honest, none of us really know what Google are doing do we?

Who we share your data with

No -one as far as I know. Unless of course you ask us to.

I hate it when people sell data don’t you?

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 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 we send your data

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

What data breach procedures we have in place

To be honest not much really because we don’t really collect store or process much in the way of personal data.

If there is a breach then we’ll certainly let you know about it and take steps to make sure your data is secured but given that we don’t really collect much data then there can’t be a lot of risk here.

Unless of course you type your usernames, bank details and passwords into our comment boxes which would be pretty dumb and frankly you only have yourself to blame.

Seriously though, Most of our data is B2B and should any personal data breach occur then we’ll deal with it immediately and to the best standards.
