The term 'Pilates Therapy' or 'us' or 'we' refers to the owner of the website. The term 'you' refers to the user or viewer of our website.
When anyone joins a class or attends a 1 to 1 session they will be asked to fill in a form with their health and contact details. These forms are kept by the Instructor so that they are able to contact you when necessary with details of classes, amendments, cancellations etc.
The instructor needs the health information in order to make sure the exercises you are doing are safe and appropriate. We will ask you to update the form every year but please let us know if any details change in the meantime. We are required by law to keep medical details for 7 years and we will then destroy them securely.
In the meantime these forms will be kept in a folder and taken by the instructors to classes but kept in a locked cabinet between classes. Any information kept on a laptop or tablet will be password protected.
In the event of a data breach Pilates-therapy will follow the correct procedures in reporting any incident and will let you know immediately if your personal data has been compromised in any way.
The forms will only ever be shown to another Pilates-therapy instructor in the event that they are teaching a class in the absence of your regular instructor, and we will never divulge any of the personal information you give us to anyone else.
