- Transaction data: details about payments received from you and the classes you have booked with us. Please note that we do not collect your financial data – bookings made through our Book That In page are processed by Book That In and their payment provider and we do not receive your payment card or bank details, and bespoke corporate classes and Yoga4Health class payments are agreed and paid to Ageless-Yoga by direct bank transfer.
- Health data: more sensitive information such as your health status when you book one of our yoga classes and/or complete our health questionnaire.
- Technical and Usage data: includes internet protocol (IP) address, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access our website.
Please note that where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to complete a booking or register you for our classes). In this case, we may have to cancel a service you have requested but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.
How do we collect your personal data?
You directly provide the data that we collect. We collect and process your data when you:
- Voluntarily contact us through the website feedback form, via email or by post, and when you submit an online testimonial.
- Register online via our Book That In page to book and pay for a yoga class. We will then receive an automated email with your name and contact details once the payment is received.
- Complete our pre-class health questionnaire.
- Interact with our website, during which we may automatically collect technical data about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns. This is collected by using cookies and similar technologies, information about which can be found in our cookies policy at [INSERT LINK].
How do we use your personal data?
We collect your data so that we can:
- Process your bookings and manage your account.
- Ensure that any yoga classes you book with us are appropriate to your needs and take account of any special circumstances.
- Email you with information on other services we think you might like and find helpful.
- Provide you with information that you have requested, or otherwise respond to enquiries from you.
- Comply with an insurance legal, or regulatory obligation, including the prevention of crime.
- Protect our business and our website, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, system maintenance, support, reporting and hosting of data. This is necessary for our legitimate interest in running our business, the provision of administration and IT services, network security.
- Review website analytics, to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the website, and to help us to improve the content of the website and to customise the content or layout of the website for you, in accordance with our legitimate interests.
When you book and pay for a yoga class via our Book That In page, your data may be automatically checked with credit reference agencies to prevent fraudulent purchases.
We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us. If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
How do we store your personal data?
Personal data collected by Ageless-Yoga is stored mainly in two ways:
- Your name and contact details, and any additional relevant personal data (including your health questionnaire and emergency contact details) will be stored securely by your Ageless-Yoga teacher.
If you complete a testimonial submission form, your name and submitted comments are stored on the Ageless-Yoga website www.ageless-yoga.co.uk. Stored data does not include your contact information.
Ageless-Yoga will keep your data only for as long as you are subscribed to one of our services and to comply with recommended time limits for legal and insurance purposes (four years). Once this time period has expired, your data will be deleted.
Ageless-Yoga may, on occasions, send you information about our services. You may opt out at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link.
Your personal data will never be passed on to a third party or any other organisation or individual for their marketing purposes without your express consent.
