Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy


This Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy provides you with details of how I collect and process your personal data through your use of my website and my company (The Tall Teacher, LLC).

I am the data controller and I am responsible for your personal data.

It is very important that all the information I hold about you is accurate and up to date. Please let me know if, at any time, your personal data information changes by emailing me at

What personal data I collect and why I collect it

While using my website

While you are on my website, I may collect information about you, such as your IP address, details about your browser (i.e. Safari, Chrome, Firefox), the amount of time you spend on the pages of my website, the page views and navigation paths, details about the number of times you use my website, time zone settings and other technology on the devices you use to access my website.

The source of this data is from the analytics tracking system I use called Google Analytics. I process this data to analyze your use of my website to monitor and protect my business and website, to deliver relevant website content and advertisement to you, and to understand the effectiveness of my advertising.

I do not collect any sensitive data about you. Sensitive data refers to data that includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health, and genetic and biometric data. I also do not collect any information about criminal convictions or offenses.

I may receive data from third parties, such as analytics providers like Google based outside of the EU, advertising networks such as Facebook based outside of the EU, or providers of Payment services such as Stripe and Paypal, both based outside the EU.

If you opt out of receiving marketing communications, this opt-out does not apply to personal data provided as a result of other transactions, such as purchases of online products or coaching services.

If you like me to remove your information from my mailing list, please send an email to me at and request your information to be removed.

If you signed up to my mailing list

Your email address and name will be stored in an email system called Flodesk. I use this information to contact you via Flodesk for the purposes of sending you emails.

You will not be added to any other email lists within MailerLite or elsewhere unless you subscribe to them. I will never share your personal data with any third party for their own marketing purposes.

You can ask me to stop sending you emails at any time by following the opt-out links in my emails sent to you, or you can email me at .

If you leave comments on my blog posts

When you’re commenting on any of my blog posts, I collect the data shown in the comments form and also your IP address and your browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it.

Before any comment is published on the site, I always read through it to help reduce spam. After approval of your comment(s), your Gravatar, if you have set up the Gravatar service, is visible next to your comment(s) for everyone to see.


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.

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 do not control these third-party websites, and I am not responsible for their privacy statements. When you leave my website, I encourage you to read the privacy notice of every website you visit.

Who I share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

Occasionally, I may have to share your personal data with the parties set out below:

  • Service providers I use who provide IT and system administration services
  • Professional advisors, including attorneys, bankers, auditors, accountants, and insurers.
  • Government bodies that require me to report processing activities

Rest assured that I require all third parties to whom I transfer your data to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. I only allow third parties to access your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with my instructions.

Currently, I am using the following third-party supplier (the type of data subject is indicated within brackets):

  • Google (name, email address)
  • Facebook/Instagram (email address)
  • MailerLite (name, email address, telephone number, address, website, device IP address)

How long I retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), I also store the personal information they provide in their user profiles. 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 me. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

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