What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and 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. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


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.

Who we share your data with

How long we 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), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. 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 us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Workshop Refund and Cancellation Policy

The Institute of Child Psychology understands that schedules can change and despite a registrant’s best intentions they may not be able to attend a workshop.

If a registrant is unable to attend the workshop an alternate delegate is welcome to attend in their place.

If a substitute cannot be found, the Institute will accept cancellations and issue refunds under the following conditions:

  • The cancellation is requested NO LESS than 30 days before an event.
    • If the Institute of Child Psychology cancels a workshop for any reason, workshop registration fees will be fully refunded.
    • Registration fees will be fully refunded if the registrant requests a cancellation no less than 30 days prior to the event.
    • No refunds will be provided if the registrant cancels after the event date or is a “no-show” at the workshop.
    • Refunds will only be issued in the original payment method.
    • Tickets can be transferred OR sold to a third-party at any time. We do request you advise the Institute of the name of the new ticketholder to avoid confusion at event check-in.

The Institute of Child Psychology is unable to issue any refunds for registrants unable to participate due to unforeseen emergencies, environmental conditions and/or acts of nature.
