Privacy Policy

Your trust is important to the Web Design Academy (WDA), and we take privacy and security very seriously. If you have any questions or concerns about our privacy policy or our use of data, please get in touch with us at, +44 113 2344611, or by our mailing address: The Web Design Academy, Suite 3, 15 South Parade, Leeds, LS1 5PQ, United Kingdom.

WDA staff uphold strict internal policies against unauthorized disclosure or use of personal information.

We will never share your information with parties outside the WDA, unless we have explicitly made you aware that we will before you give it to us. We use services for payment processing, which requires sharing the transaction information with them over a secure connection, under legal agreement that appropriately controls its use and retention. We may establish similar arrangements with other formally contracted service providers, but always use privacy and security as key criteria when selecting them, and only share the data required for the service to function. As an organization with an ideological commitment to self-hosting nearly everything, the number of such providers is and will be very small.


The WDA uses Google Analytics to monitor traffic on our Web sites. Google Analytics records the general geographical vicinity of visitors as well as their browser and operating system, and records their navigation within the sites. This helps us gauge the impact of our materials and improve our work.

Unfortunately, Google Analytics does not respect your privacy to the extent that we would wish, by default. It does provide some level of anonymisation and it is possible for you to make Google Analytics respect browser-based "Do Not Track" options. But enforcing "Do Not Track" requires you to choose that option in settings within your own Google Account and truly reliable anonymisation requires you to actively manage cookie policy in your browser settings. This is not merely tiresome, but the Catch-22 of depending on a Google account significantly reduces the value of putting in the effort. For these reasons, we are actively seeking alternatives to Google Analytics.

In the meantime you can access every feature of our website, bar sales (see below), without accepting any cookies.
