Other information may be requested by clients, such as your bank details in order to process payment, or other information related to providing the services we provide our clients. This information is usually requested by the client and provided by you.

Requesting removal of Personal Information

As already outlined above, we take your privacy very seriously and any personal details that we store are only ever used in order to provide you with our Stardust Dance Academy services.

Your contact details are NEVER passed to anyone other than those who conduct work or services for Stardust Entertainment and we will not contact you about anything, other than matters related to your party booking and our services.

In order to provide you with our services, we need to store your details on our systems. However, if at any time you wish us to erase any and/ all personal data that we have for you, we will be more than happy to do this for you at your request.Please note that if you request this before your party booking takes place, whilst we can accommodate your request to erase your data, this will render us unable to offer you our services and we would have to cancel your party. In such cases our cancellation policy would then apply and we would erase any personal data we have for you.

If you request this after a party booking, then this will obviously have no effect on your booked party services. However please note that should you ever wish to book our services again in the future, if we erase all your details, we would not have any information on your past booking/s. So should you ever wish to rebook with us, we would be unable to refer back to old details that we have for you, that may prove useful when wanting to book a new party or service.

It will also mean we are unable to offer you our discounts that we offer to repeat customers as we would no longer have any record of you having ever booked with us.

If you wish to request that we erase all personal details that we have for you, you can do this by completing the form on the ‘Contact Us’ page.

We will never spam you or pass your details on to anyone else.
