to provide services to you, and to manage the services we provide you (i.e. StageMilk Drama School student correspondence)

specific financial details are used solely to bill the user for the provision of services and products (i.e StageMilk Drama School, StageMilk Online Acting Training)

Any information you supply us with, via email, Social Media or Blog comments will be kept confidential. Such information will not be disclosed, unless authorised by you or otherwise required by law.

Our goal is to simply provide you with the information, and the resources you might need to begin your acting career, take your acting career to the next level, and become a better actor.
