Who I am

I’m Amber Semple, a qualified teacher, running private French classes for young children, currently online, and producing resources to help you learn French at home.  My website address is:

Your personal details

Firstly, this website does not use cookies.  With regard to this website, your personal details are collected in two ways:

  1. If you make a purchase, I collect information necessary to enable you to be able to pay for products via the generic forms created by WooCommerce, which is a plug-in I use to sell products over my website.  Your personal details are not used for promotional purposes and nor are they passed on to anyone other than by your consent to pay me, for example through PayPal – the only reason they may be used would be if I updated a product and offered you an updated version of the product at no additional cost to you or if there was a problem with your payment or with the product that needed rectifying.  When you make a purchase, I receive an email which gives me your personal details.  Any emails I receive come to my gmail account, which is password protected on my PC, and is only accessible on my phone by unlocking it.
  2. If you comment on my Blog, WordPress records your personal data – I have included the information that they provide below about how this takes place.

There are links from this website that take you to other websites.  These include Hoop, YouTube, Facebook, Amazon and Mailchimp.  In order to find out how they collect and use your personal data, please look up their respective privacy policies.

Please do get in touch with me if you have any further questions.

Information from WordPress about your Blog comments:

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: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Who we share your data with

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

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
