We collect and use personal identification information for carefully considered legitimate business purposes.  This information is used for the sole purpose of providing a high quality service, to enable us to contact customers, fulfil their bookings, accept payment for products and services, for security and for the health and safety of our colleagues and customers.

We may also use personal information for the following reasons:

To improve customer service - personal identification information helps us to respond to customer service requests and support needs more effectively.

To process transactions: we may use the information Customers provide about themselves when making a booking, only to provide service to that booking. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to provide the service.

To personalise user experience - we may use information in the aggregate to understand how our Customers / Users as a group use the services and resources provided on our website.

To improve our website - we continually strive to improve our website offerings based on the information and feedback we receive.

To administer a content, promotion, survey or other website feature; to send Customers / Users information they agreed to receive about topics we think will be of interest to them.

To send periodic emails - the email address Customers provide for bookings, will only be used to send them information and updates pertaining to their booking. It may also be used to respond to enquiries, and/or other requests or questions. If a Customer / User decide to opt-in to our mailing list, they will receive emails that may include company news, updates, related product or service information.   If at any time they would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we can be contacted on the following email hello@connectyogaandwellness.co.uk

Visitor Log
Signing in / out at reception at Connect Yoga and Wellness; we ask for the name, contact number and the purpose of the visit.

We collect information on the nature of the event, organisation name, contact name, email address, postal address and contact number of the parties involved, including any witnesses, witness statements and any photographic or CCTV footage of the incident in order to aid our investigations.

The information is used to investigate the accident or incident to determine the root cause by our colleagues, to prevent reoccurrence. Information may also be used to make contact with individuals as a follow up after the event.

We will collect personal identification information from Customers / Users only if they voluntarily submit such information to us. Customers / Users can always refuse to supply personal identification information, however, it may prevent them from engaging in certain Connect Yoga and Wellness centre and website related activities.

NON-PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION INFORMATION

Non-personal identification information may include the browser name, the type of computer and technical information about Customers / Users means of connection to our website, such as the operating system and the Internet service provider's utilised and other similar information.

4. Who we share information with?

We do not sell, trade, or rent Customer / User personal identification information to others. We may share anonymous, generic aggregated information not linked to any personal identification information regarding Customers / Users with our business partners, trusted affiliates and advertisers for the purposes outlined above. We may use third party service providers to help us operate our business and the website.

If requested and where it is required or permitted by law, we may provide Information to:
Official bodies, such as government agencies, local authorities, regulators and the police, who are authorised to request Information where it is necessary for their lawful purposes.

Visitor Log

CCTV
Where necessary we share footage and images from CCTV with the police, local authorities and government agencies for the prevention and detection of crime.

Accident/ Incident Documents

5. How long we store personal identification information

Where personal identification information has been provided, we will keep the data for up to 6 months, from the last activity or booking (whichever is greater).  Visitor Logs are retained on site for 6 months. CCTV footage is held on our system for 30 days.  Accident / Incident Documents are retained on site for 12 months. The personal identification information is then securely deleted. 

Where necessary for authorised purposes, copies of CCTV footage may be kept for as long as is necessary to fulfil the applicable purpose e.g. investigation of a suspected crime or accident and any related legal or regulatory action. These copies will be securely destroyed when the purpose has been fulfilled.

We do need to keep some anonymous information for longer, such as Customer / User activity, so we can analyse it to identify trends and changes in service requirements. We remove all names, contact details and any other information that identifies individuals, so it is all just anonymous numbers and data.  

6. How we protect personal identification information

We use security measures, including physical, administrative and technical safeguards to protect the confidentiality of Personal Identification Information. These measures may include encryption, access controls, policies and procedures to help protect your information.

We adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorised access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information, username, password, transaction information and data stored on our website.

Sensitive and private data exchange between the website and its Users happens over a SSL secured communication channel and is encrypted.
