Who we are

Learning From Animals is a company brand belonging to Melanie Appleyard, which is focussed on your wellbeing and that of your family. We offer wellbeing blogs and online courses to help you nurture your children’s wellbeing.

Melanie Appleyard values your trust and confidence and is committed to maintaining that. As such we want you to know that we would never rent, sell or trade your details or email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes. For your reassurance this Privacy Policy is designed to provide you with lots of detailed information on why we collect your personal information, how we use it, the limited conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure.

Types of data we collect

This website uses cookies to collect some information about your browsing or purchasing information when you access this website via the same computer or device. This includes information about pages viewed, products purchased and your journey around the website. This really helps us to tailor our services to the needs of our customers. We don’t use cookies to collect or record information on your name, address or other contact details. You can find out more about how we use cookies by reading our cookie policy.

As part of the registration process for our services, free content or newsletters, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to send you content and products that you’ve requested or to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; occasional marketing of products or services that we feel may be of interest to you, or to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information. We may also email you to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don't rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.

Third Party Providers

We use a third-party provider, Mailerlite, to deliver our products, services and newsletters via email. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our products, services and newsletters. For more information, please see Mailerlite’s Privacy Policy. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails.

We also use Google Analytics to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our websites. 

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behave in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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.

Access to your personal information

You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold. Email your request to Melanie Appleyard at learningfromanimals@ma-wellbeing.com.

Changes to this Privacy Notice

We reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please review it frequently. Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the website. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here that it has been updated, so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we use and/or disclose it.
