Managing Your Marketing Preferences

- Where you have not made a purchase with Playwell Martial Arts during this two-year period, we will only continue to send you marketing communications where you expressly tell us that you want to. If you do nothing, then we will stop sending you marketing communications.
- Where you have made a purchase with Playwell Martial Arts during this period, we will continue to communicate with you in the same way until you tell us otherwise. If you do nothing, we will assume that you are happy for Playwell Martial Arts to continue to send you marketing communications in the same way.
If you have opted-in to receive marketing communications from us you can manage your preferences online at any time. We have created a Preference Centre where you can manage your marketing communications preferences and tell us what you want to hear about and how you want Playwell Martial Arts to communicate with you.
