What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Booking Forms

Full name and personal details including contact information (e.g.email address and phone numbers). This is so we can contact you regarding services that you have booked and so that automated messages can be sent from the website to you the user.


When simply browsing the Thames Valley Bodywork website, the only information we will collect is ‘cookies’ that help to enhance your experience on the website.  Cookies are little tags stored within your browser and allow us to identify how you move through the site. They can include a unique identifier that is stored on your computer’s hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not information sent to you by other sites.

This is common practice online as it allows sites to track what their users are doing on their own sites, such as most popular pages, products or to see how many people have visited that month. Cookies also record information about your online preferences. This can be for remembering forms or that you have ticked an acceptance box on a previous screen. You can set your computer to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time.

If you choose not to accept cookies, the order process on either or both of our websites will not work and some other personalised experiences will be unavailable to you. This means that you may not be able to take full advantage of all of the features available.

Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences. If you have set your computer to reject cookies you can still browse this website anonymously until such time as you wish to register for any services.
