We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests.

We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests.

  • Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation;
  • It is necessary to protect your vital interests or the interests of your child if you are physically or legally incapable of giving consent.

Note that we may process your personal data for more than one lawful ground depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your data.

Generally we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data other than in relation to sending direct marketing communications to you via email or text message. You have the right to withdraw consent to marketing at any time by contacting us on the details above.

When we process any special categories of information i.e. information revealing racial or ethnic origin, religious or philosophical beliefs; genetic data or health data, we must have a further lawful basis for the processing. This may include:

  • where you have given us your explicit consent to do so;
  • it is necessary in the field of employment, social security or social protection law;
  • where the processing is necessary to protect your vital interests or your child’s or someone else’s vital interests; or
  • is necessary for medical diagnosis.

If we process any information relating to your criminal convictions or offences, we will only do so in compliance with data protection legislation. Typically we rely on one of the following lawful bases:

  • preventing or detecting unlawful acts;
  • complying with our regulatory requirements in relation to unlawful acts or dishonesty or safeguarding;
  • dealing with suspicions of terrorist financing or money laundering;
  • where it is necessary for us to obtain legal advice or establish, exercise or defend legal rights.

We will take the details of all parents and/or guardians of a child swimmer upon booking lessons with us.

PURPOSES FOR WHICH WE WILL USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA

We have set out below a description of all the ways we plan to use your personal data:

To register you as a customer, to process and deliver our products and services, to assess the quality of our products and services, manage payments, fees, and charges, to collect and recover money owed to us for our services, to manage our relationship with you, informing you of changes to our privacy policy or terms and conditions, to administer and protect our business and this website (including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, system maintenance, support, reporting and hosting of data), to make suggestions and recommendations to you about goods or services that may be of interest to you.

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. Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.

MARKETING EMAILS

We may use your data to form a view on the products and services which we believe could be of interest to you. You will receive marketing communications from us if you have used our services or purchased a product from us or requested information from us and you have not opted out of receiving that marketing.

We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any company outside Individuality Swimming Limited for marketing purposes.

You can ask us or third parties to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by contacting us.

Where you opt out of receiving these marketing messages, this will not apply to personal data provided to us as a result of you using our services or other transactions.

DISCLOSURES OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

As part of the services we provide to you, we may have to share your personal data with third parties such as:

If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal data in the same way as set out in this privacy notice.

We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS

Your information will be held at our offices, by our service providers and in our IT provider’s data centres. We will try to make sure that these data centres are based in the UK wherever possible. In order for us to provide our services to you, from time to time we may have to share your personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA). This could include where our service providers are based outside the EEA (for example our IT cloud services), if you are based outside the EEA, if there is an international element to the services we are providing or if one of our employees need to access our data remotely from outside the EEA.

Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

  • We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission;
  • Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe; and/or
  • Where the transfer is not repetitive, information is limited, the transfer is necessary for our legitimate interests and those interests do not override your own and we have put appropriate safeguards in place to protect your data.

DATA SECURITY

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.


HOW LONG WILL YOU USE MY PERSONAL DATA FOR?

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

When you meet the below criteria your information and classes will be permanently deleted from the online portal:

  • Not belonged to a class for 12 months; and
  • Not had your details amended in 12 months; and
  • Not on a waiting list; and
  • Does not have an outstanding balance (positive or negative)

Otherwise, we will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, accounting, or reporting requirements. This is usually 6 years.

This website may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins and applications which may include social media. Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share data about you.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS 

Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. You are entitled to:

  • request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • have your data corrected, updated or amended. Please note that we may ask you to verify any changes to your data such as a proof of change of address or name;
  • Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it
  • Object to and/or restrict processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. Please note that in some instances we may have to stop providing our services to you but we will notify you if this is the case.
  • Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party, for example if you chose to use another business to provide services to you.
  • Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us at info@individualityswimmingandfitness.co.uk You will not normally have to pay a fee for this, but we will let you know if we feel that it is fair to charge a fee, for example if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive .
