What personal data we collect and why we collect it:

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded content from other websites:

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves 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.

Who we share your data with:

No personal data is shared with third parties without strict permissions.

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.

What rights you have over your data:

The GDPR provides certain rights that you may exercise in respect of your own personal data:

  • you have a right to request a copy of any personal data we hold about you, by making a request in writing
  • you can ask us to update our records if you believe that the data we hold is inaccurate or incomplete
  • you can request that we stop or restrict the processing we complete, however this may mean that we will not be able to respond to your enquiry or complaint
  • you can ask us to delete the personal data we hold about you

There may however be some circumstances in which we cannot comply. Such as, if we have a legal duty to keep data, or to process it in a particular way.

Please contact us if you have any queries relating to your rights and how we use your personal data. We handle all requests to exercise GDPR rights on a case-by-case basis.

When you write to us or call us, your enquiry will usually be first handled by our main central office. They will then send it to specific persons within the company so that your question can be answered, or your complaint resolved.

The Professional Diving Academy is the data controller (holder of data) for all of the personal data it collects and processes. A data controller from this company may share data.

  • among different parts of its own organisation
  • with permissions, to third parties
