Breathe Calm Yoga & Mindfulness is committed to ensuring that your privacy & data is protected. When you contact me, you can be assured that your data will only be used in accordance with the privacy statement below.
Core Principles regarding user privacy & data protection
User privacy & data protection are inviolable human rights
I have a duty of care to people contained within this data
Data is a liability: it should only be collected & processed when absolutely necessary
I hate spam in all its forms
I will never sell, rent or otherwise distribute or make public any personal information
Personal Data: Name, Email Address, Phone Number
I have a legitimate interest to retain your contact details while you are attending classes or sessions so that I can keep you up to date. I will contact you primarily by email. You will only receive a text in the event of a last-minute class or session cancellation.
Your name, email address & phone number will be stored safely. Names & emails will be stored securely in my email system (Gmail – protected via Google privacy systems) which is accessed on my laptop & phone. My laptop, phone & email system are all password protected. My laptop security is protected by Microsoft anti-virus software. Contact numbers in my phone are updated termly. If you have not attended a class for a complete term, your number will be deleted from my phone.
When you complete your initial health form, you consent to be added to the newsletter list (stored securely on the Wix website platform in the ShoutOut database) so that I can keep you informed of class changes & events. You will be added to the list unless you tick the Opt Out box on the form as you are an existing client & I have a legitimate reason to keep you informed about classes & events. You will only receive a newsletter occasionally (approx. every 6 - 8 weeks). Wix Shoutout is a third party data processor but your data will only be used for the newsletter & will not be shared with any other third parties. You can unsubscribe at any time using the Unsubscribe button at the bottom of the newsletter or emailing me. If you don't unsubscribe, our email address will remain in the Wix 'ShoutOut' database for as long as I continue to use this system.
Once you have left Breathe Calm classes or sessions, you can request that your contact details are deleted. They will be deleted from Gmail, the Wix website & phone within one month of receiving the request. If you do not request that your contact details are deleted, you may still receive occasional newsletters (approx. every 4-6 weeks) but you can unsubscribe at any time using the Unsubscribe button at the bottom of the newsletter.
Personal Data: Health forms, Consent Forms, 121 Assessment Forms, Client Notes
Your safety & comfort are my priority. I have a lawful basis for retaining health details (physical &/or mental as applicable) while you are attending classes or sessions so that I can plan classes or sessions to suit your individual needs.
The information on these forms is kept confidential & will not be shared with any third parties (except with your express written permission or with medical professionals in an emergency situation). Forms are stored securely in paper format in a locked box at my home (& by email attachment if you reply electronically).
I bring health forms for current clients to yoga classes to enable me to teach safely. However at your written request, I will only bring your emergency contact number to class & your form will be stored securely at home.
Forms & notes will be stored securely for up to seven years. I have lawful basis to retain this data to enable me to ensure your safety & comfort, to ensure continuity of care & to protect myself.
Current clients are regularly asked to update personal details (by newsletter – approximately every 6 - 8 weeks). At the start of each calendar year, you will be required to complete a new health form.
You can request to see any data I hold on you – I will supply this within one month.
I will report any unlawful data breaches to the relevant people & authorities within 72 hours of the breach if it is apparent that personal data stored in an identifiable manner has been stolen.
