The General Data Protection Regulations introduced in the UK in May 2018 require consent to be specifically given for organisations to use and hold personal data.

For any Tai Chi Caledonia event, consent to the use of your data is inferred by your submitting it on the booking form or by email. However, consent given in this way is restricted to using it for communicating information about that year’s event only.

In future years we will introduce a tick box on the booking form to provide opt-in consent for Tai Chi Caledonia to retain your data for as long as it is relevant to the Tai Chi Caledonia family activities and to use it in both the current and future years. Use of this data is, and will continue to be, restricted to providing you with information about the Tai Chi Caledonia family, namely the event itself and any workshops/seminars which may be presented by teachers from these events but separate from the events themselves.

Any personal data that we hold is restricted to name, address, telephone numbers, age and email address as provided by you by email or on the event booking form. This information is held on a secure database accessible only to the organisers of Tai Chi Caledonia. We do not and will not share it with any other organisation or individual. The forms on which this data was submitted are destroyed after each year’s event.

Any photographs and videos of workshops during the event may be used for publicity purposes. Some of these may be published by us on our website and our Facebook page and shared with our colleagues at the European Taiji Forum ( ) who may use them, again for our publicity purposes, or to illustrate the topic being covered by the material. No personal data is shared with the Taiji Forum. If you do not wish your image to be used you can inform the organisers at the start of the event or at any point during it.


If you require that we remove any personal information we have collected about you, please email your request to  and your data will be removed in a timely manner where possible within the limits of the law.
