For the remainder of this documentation Nottingham Dance and Fitness shall be known as NDF.

Privacy Statement

NDF is committed to upholding the Data Protection principles of good practice. Protecting your privacy is important to us and we strive to keep all information relating to you confidential in accordance with this statement and the law. As part of the normal operation of our services you may voluntarily provide us with information about yourself. The purpose of this Privacy Statement is to explain what personal data we collect about you, how that personal data might be used and how we protect your personal data and privacy.

Please note that although NDF is a dance and fitness services provider, we also organise events and sell tickets to those events and so our privacy policy must reflect that. NDF will only store necessary data to provide the service that you, the customer, are using. You may request, at any time, the data that NDF has stored by providing adequate identification. You may decide at any time whether you wish for us to continue to use that data in order to continue to provide you with those services or if you wish to amend or erase the data that we hold.

Your Privacy and the Information We Collect from You

In order to operate the site, provide NDF Services, conduct ticket purchase transactions and provide you with information on products and services that may be of interest to you, we May collect three classes of information about you:

· “Contact information” (i.e. information that could be used to contact you such as full name, postal address, phone number and email address), which is then stored on our secure database. We also may collect an emergency contact number; this information is treated the same as special category information and is only stored whilst you are attending NDF classes.

· “Demographic information” (e.g. postal code, hometown, and purchase history information) from you, which is also stored on our database.

. ”Special Category Medical Information” (e.g. relevant medical conditions and/or medications) This information is collected so we can give you the best advice about the classes you’re attending. In the event of an emergency we will give this information to the emergency services. We temporarily store this information whilst you’re attending any NDF classes. If you stop attending NDF classes we periodically purge this information from our database as it is no relevant. This information is never shared with third parties or used for marketing purposes.

· “Financial information” (i.e. credit and debit card numbers) however this information is not permanently stored on our database, we only collect this information to process payments for ticket purchases. We often use third parties to collect payments on our behalf in which case no payment information is collected directly by us.

Data Protection

Your details are encrypted on the NDF server, which is stored in a secure location. The server is password protected and can only be accessed by authorized staff. When personal data is input into NDF’s server, we use appropriate physical, electronic and managerial security measures to try to prevent that personal data from being accessed by unauthorized persons and to ensure that you may input personal data safely. This means that sometimes we may ask for proof of identity before we disclose personal data to you. When inputting card details for payment, the system encrypts all your personal information including credit/debit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read if intercepted by a malicious third party. NDF does not store any credit/debit card data.

Ticket Bookings

When processing your order for ticket bookings (Customers) we will ask you for your name, address, telephone number and/or email address. This is essential for all non-cash bookings. NDF may use an external merchant to collect and process this information. Where this is the case NDF does not collect any of the above information permanently or temporarily in relation to the non-cash booking system.

NDF only collects personal information about you when you specifically provide us with such information on a voluntary basis. We will not share your personal information for marketing or any other purposes without your consent unless where required by law.
