Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.
For the purpose of the Data Protection Act 1998, the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) and any replacement or amending legislation, the data controller is Jo Jingles Limited, a company registered in England and Wales under company number 03052070, with its registered office at Chiltern House, 45 Station Road, Henley-on-Thames, RG9 1AT.

1. Our franchise
We use a network of franchisees to deliver Jo Jingles classes in your local area. This network shares information with us in order for us to monitor the delivery and quality of Jo Jingles classes and the performance of our franchisees.
We will also share information with your local franchisee so that they can liaise with you about the classes that you want to attend. Please see section 4 below for more information on the basis on which we share this information. All our franchisees are currently registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office and are contractually obliged to pay the data protection fee annually.

This policy covers the use of our website by both consumers of Jo Jingles classes and/or products, and potential franchisees. Where it is necessary to distinguish between the types of data subject, we do so in this policy.

Please note that if we do agree to grant you a franchise, we will process your information in further ways than set out above. We will advise you separately of these uses/activities and our lawful basis for doing so at that time.

4. Disclosures of your information
Pursuant to the uses set out in section 3 above, we have the right to share the personal information that we collect with:
· Our franchisees. Jo Jingles classes are provided by a network of franchises across the country. Each franchise is a separate business that is owned and managed by the franchisee. In order to monitor the provision of Jo Jingles classes and services, and administer the Jo Jingles network as a whole, your personal information is shared between us and your local franchisee and vice versa. All of the data collected by our franchisees is stored on a secure online database (see section 5 below) and all our franchisees pay the data protection fee. The sharing of data between us and our franchisees is governed by contractual obligations in the franchise agreement. The data that is shared includes special categories of personal data where you have consented to such disclosure.

Occasionally, a franchisee may sell their franchise to another person. In such circumstances, the potential new franchisee will be given limited access to your personal data under a confidentiality agreement to assist in the transfer of the franchise. All new franchisees are expected to contact their customers to introduce themselves, provide an updated privacy notice and review the personal data held and, where relevant, the consents given to ensure continued compliance with data protection law.

· Our business partners and suppliers. Where you have made a purchase from the online shop, we will share your Contact Information with our selected carrier so that they can deliver your order to you. We may also disclose certain of your information to our professional advisers. Such advisers are under professional ethical obligations to maintain the confidentiality of any information we give to them.

· Other data processors. We have engaged certain organisations to provide particular data processing services to us.
If you are a parent or other user who is looking to buy a product from our online shop, we disclose Contact Information and Payment Information to Stripe, Inc. to process the payment. Stripe is a ‘Participating Organization’ in the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council and has been independently certified as a PCI Level 1 Service Provider, which means that it is subject to the highest standards of data security and annual re-certification. Stripe are also members of the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework (please see for more information) and so disclosures and transfers between us and Stripe are protected. Please visit for more information on Stripe (including their privacy policy).

Also, for information from parents and other users, we may disclose Contact Information to our online marketing processors - MailChimp - to administer promotional email campaigns for our own products and services, or to our market researcher - SurveyMonkey - for carrying out occasional market research and customer satisfaction online surveys. MailChimp is the trading name of The Rocket Science Group, LLC, which is a company located in the USA. SurveyMonkey is ultimately a US-owned company, but all their EU processing is carried out by SurveyMonkey Europe UC. Both MailChimp and SurveyMonkey are members of the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework.
Please visit for more information on MailChimp (including their privacy policy) and for more information on SurveyMonkey (including their privacy policy).

If you are a potential franchisee, we will disclose your details to credit reference and fraud prevention agencies and to the Disclosure and Barring Service in order to conduct application checks. The privacy policies for the credit reference agencies that we use (Experian, Equifax and CallCredit) are available via their websites:, and Further information on how your data may be used by credit reference and fraud prevention agencies is contained on the Franchise Application Form, and is also available on request. The Disclosure and Barring Service is a non-departmental public body affiliated to the Home Office.

· Analytics and search engine providers. Technical Information is shared between us and Google Analytics, which is a service provided by Google, Inc. Google are members of the EU-US Privacy Shield framework and their privacy policy can be found on their website. Information on the particular cookies used by the Google Analytics tool can be found here:

· Public bodies. Where we are legally obliged to disclose information to a public body (e.g. a government organisation, the Police or the courts), we will do so. We will only share the minimum information necessary for the purpose (which will never include any special category data without your consent) and will seek your express consent to share identifying information outside of the above organisations or outside of the EEA (save for in the circumstances set out above).

5. Where we store your personal data
All information provided to, or collected by, us or our franchisees is stored on our secure servers. Only authorised people have access to these servers, and each local franchisee can only see the information relevant to their own franchise. To ensure services continue to be delivered smoothly, we make regular back-ups of our data to a secure storage system at our head office, maintained for one year, after which the data is securely destroyed. Where information is provided or collected in hard copy, this is stored securely at our Head Office and is reviewed every 12 months. Where any data is identified at a review as no longer required, it is securely destroyed. We regard data as no longer required if we have not had any interaction with you for at least 2 years. All of our franchisees are under similar obligations. We will take reasonable steps to protect your information in accordance with this policy, including (without limitation):
· Installing a secure firewall;
· Using anti-virus protection software;
· Encrypting data; and
· Carrying out regular back-ups.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of the Site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Site at all times, and any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Should your data be unlawfully accessed or the subject of a data breach that may cause you significant harm, we will contact you and the Information Commissioner’s Office within 72 hours.

6. Your rights
You have the following rights under law in respect of your personal information:
· The right to be informed about the collection and use of your personal information;

· The right to object to certain uses (such as for marketing purposes); and

If applicable, please let us know if you are exercising your rights against your local franchisee so that we can forward your request on.

If there’s not one available in your area at this time do take a look online to see where you can join another online session in our Network

During this very difficult time we want to support families at home and provide some musical fun and entertainment for children.

If you would like to also stock up on musical goodies to accompany the sessions visit Jo’s Shop at – it’s business as usual, at this time, for all online orders received.

This situation is evolving rapidly, and we will keep you updated if things change but in the meantime we are continuing to follow all necessary health and safety guidelines.
