How we treat your personal data

Protecting your personal data is an obligation we take very seriously. Below you will find more information about what we do and don’t do with your data:

This website is administered by The Word Gym and hosted by 1&1. The site is intended to provide you with information about The Word Gym’s business activities and ethos. We do not gather information about you in any form other than as an IP address and browser type in our Internet access log. We do not store “cookies” on your personal computer, nor do we make any attempt to track your access of our site other than registering the number of hits on given pages by specific browser types (but not by individuals) through our Internet access log.

If you choose to submit information to us voluntarily, you may do so by e-mail. In no case do we encourage you to supply more information than is necessary to establish a business relationship, and at your request we will immediately delete any such information that we may hold.

PLEASE NOTE that you cannot knowingly or unknowingly reveal personal information simply by accessing or browsing this website. In any case, we do not disclose personal or commercial information to third parties for commercial or other purposes without your explicit permission. All personal data held by The Word Gym is governed by the UK Data Protection Act of 1998 and any subsequent amendments to the latter.


When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, as well as 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 appears next to your comment.

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. It is possible for visitors to the website to download and extract 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 you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

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.

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

PLEASE NOTE that visitor comments may be subjected to an automated spam detection service.


Please feel free to contact us at any time if you have any queries regarding our data protection policy or any other aspect of our services or operations.

If you would like to receive regular e-newsletters from us with updates on our activities and services, please drop us a quick note. We operate an “opt-in” policy, which means we do not send you e-mailers or any other e-marketing information unless you request it or ask to be placed on our mailing list.

“May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full moon on a dark night, and a smooth road all the way to your door.”
