Why and How we store your personal information
Once you are participant in one of our Pilates sessions we ask you to give us personal information about your health, and also phone numbers and email addresses.
As a condition of our Liability Insurance cover we must ask you to fill out and sign a Health Questionnaire. If you fill it out online it is sent back to us in encrypted form. We have to print then and bring them to class, in order to get them signed .Once you have signed it, it is scanned onto a secure Dropbox and the original is locked in a secure filing cabinet in the Alison Plant Pilates studio.
As the APP Administrator, I, Alison Plant, have access to the files. Each instructor only has access to the files pertaining to their respective classes
Also as a condition of our liability Insurance, we keep registers of attendance of our classes. These registers are on going and the current ones are maintained by the Instructors. The old ones are locked away.
The underwriters of our insurers, Balens have stipulated that the Health Questionnaires must be signed and that we retain our records for 7 years after you cease participation in any of our Pilates sessions.
We ask for your phone number so that we can contact you at short notice, for example, if a class is cancelled at the last minute. Each Instructor keeps the numbers of her respective classes on her own mobile phone. These records are deleted if you stop attending sessions.
You do not have to give us a phone number.
More often than not, initial contact is made with us via email. We retain your email address for 1 year because the email threads are invaluable for enabling efficient communication and admin with participants on an on going basis.
