What personal data we collect and why we collect it
“Personal Information” is anything that may be used to identify You, including: name, age, date of birth, address, email address, phone number, emergency contacts, information related to Your physical fitness and/or health, payment methods and associated information as required for verification by Our payment processor and/or booking software.
No personal data is collected by browsing Our website until You initiate contact by either:
(a) using the contact form to send a message,
(b) signing up for Our email newsletter, or
(c) registering to take classes and subsequently filling out an intake form and liability waiver
Comments are disabled on all blog posts by default, so all WordPress comment and user cookies are not currently in use.
WPForms WordPress plugin (https://wpforms.com/privacy-policy/) is used to power the contact form and email newsletter forms on Our website. They do not store or otherwise have access to form submission data.
Form submissions (contact and email sign up) are stored in Our WordPress database and may be exported to Our personal computers for the purpose of fulfilling requested actions (responding to messages, adding email addresses to contact lists,) A copy of each submission is also mailed to Our administrative email address and is stored there until each request is fulfilled.
Intake forms and waivers
Upon registering and before attending classes, You are required to fill out a student intake form and a waiver of liability for Our activities together. Basic contact information and consent to terms are all that is required to make these forms legally binding and fulfill the requirements set by Our insurance policy.
Any other information You provide (such as information related to Your activity level, health concerns or other medical conditions) is completely voluntary and while sometimes helpful, not required to provide You with Our services. Any information You choose to disclose is confidential and will not be shared with anyone within or outside of Our organization for any reason.
A sample of Our intake form can be found here (here) for reference, Note that none of the information is listed as required, but name, address and emergency contact information should be provided for Your safety in the event of an emergency during Our time together.
