Privacy Policy

At The Writers College, we understand that privacy online is important to users of our website, subscribers to our newsletter, and anyone who engages with us through email, our website, or social media.

The Writers College policy is to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect from you across our website,, and other sites we own and operate.

We only ask for personal information when we truly need it to provide a service to you; for example, when you apply for a course or use our ‘contact us’ form. We collect it by legitimate means, with your full knowledge and consent.

Collection of Personal Information

On our forms, we require you to provide a certain amount of information. This includes information needed to apply for a course and create a student login (such as your name and email address). We use this information to provide you with a service or a better online experience.

In order to better understand how our customers use this site, we collect and analyse some information about our site users. This includes such things as what time of day they visit, what browser they use and what pages they visit. No personal or other information that may be used to identify you is included in this analysis.

The Writers College will not send ‘spam’ or an unsolicited email or SMS. The Writers College will not provide your details to a third party unless you have given us permission. We may send one or two follow up emails if we don’t receive a response from you after an application has been made; this is to make sure you did receive our reply. We dislike aggressive sales tactics as much as you do.

On occasion, we publish student success stories, extracts of student work and testimonials. We only do this with your consent, and there is never an obligation to participate.

Web Browser Cookies

Our website may use ‘cookies’ to enhance user experience. Your web browser places cookies on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes and sometimes to track information about you. You may choose to set your web browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you do so, note that some parts of the site may not function properly.

Storing of Your Data

We only retain collected information for as long as necessary while you are studying with us. What data we store, we’ll protect within commercially acceptable means to prevent loss and theft, as well as unauthorised access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.

We don’t share any personally identifying information publicly or with third-parties, except when required to by law.

Our website may link to external sites that we do not operate. Please be aware that we have no control over the content and practices of these sites and cannot accept responsibility or liability for their respective privacy policies.

We regard your continued use of our website as acceptance of our practices around privacy and personal information. If you have any questions about how we handle user data and personal information, feel free to contact us.
