Data Protection Policy

Data Privacy Summary

At JumpingCLAY we take our customers privacy very seriously. It is important that you know exactly what we do with your personal information that you provide to us, why we gather it and what it means for you.

This is in line with our obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes into force on the 25th May 2018. From this date, the GDPR, together with the relevant local and national laws will replace the existing Data Protection Act and place enhanced accountability and transparency obligations on organisations when using your information.

The GDPR introduces changes which will provide you greater control over your personal information, including the right to object to processing your information that is carried out for our business purposes.


Who we are

JumpingCLAY is a network of independent instructors, or activity providers, running children’s educational clay activities throughout the UK & Ireland. Your information is held by Jumping Clay Limited (a UK based company) and members of the JumpingCLAY instructor and franchise network. Your local activity provider will be the person running the activities and providing our services in your local area. Each local activity provider will adhere to our Data Protection Policy. 


The Information we collect about you

We will hold:

  • data to identify you, including your contact details
