LEGAL BASIS FOR DATA PROCESSING

 

We can process personal data on various legal bases:

 

For processing operations for which we obtain your consent for a specific processing purpose, Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR is our legal basis. For example, purchase of a class pass or consent to marketing emails.

 

If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract with yourself, for example, when processing operations are necessary to provide you with our products or services, the processing is based on Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR. This includes processing required from your inquiries concerning our products or services.

 

As an entity established under the laws of England and Wales, we are obliged to comply with UK laws and guidance provided by UK regulatory bodies and where we are subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, our processing is based on Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR.

 

Finally, we can base our processing operations on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR: in specific situations, we require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way which might reasonably be expected as part of running our business and which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests.

 

THIRD PARTY SERVICES

 

We may use third party services to process your personal data, for example, payment gateway Stripe and Paypal. The third-party providers used by us will collect, process and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. Each such third party will act as a data controller in relation to the data that we supply to it and will have their own privacy policy which will govern that third party’s use of your personal data which we recommend you read.

 

Certain providers may be located in, or have facilities that are located in, a different jurisdiction than either you or us which means your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

 

We may also disclose your personal information to third parties: only in the event that we consider selling the business entity; in the event of an insolvency situation or to protect our rights, our property, our customers, or others.

Where you have chosen a password to access certain parts of our booking site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

 

YOUR RIGHTS

 

You have a number of rights in relation to our use of your personal information and can request us to do various things with this information. For example, at any time you can ask us to correct mistakes or even delete your information.

We reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please review it frequently. Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the website. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here that it has been updated, so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we use and/or disclose it.

 

If our company is acquired or merged with another company, your information may be transferred to the new owners so that we may continue to sell services to you.
