Body and Soul Yoga Data Protection Policy and Privacy Notice

Last updated: 13th May 2018

Health and Personal Information Forms

These are required to be completed before your first class. The information requested is necessary to meet insurance company criteria, to ensure your health and safety during classes and to facilitate lesson planning around your individual needs. The forms are kept in a secure location and only taken out on the day of your course. Files are always kept safe under the supervision of your teacher. These documents will NEVER be shown to a third party or shared without your specific instructions. They are required for insurance purposes to be securely stored for seven years after your last class.

If you wish to alter any of your data, review how it is used or wish to request its return to you, please contact mary Griffiths on [email protected] You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information to Body and Soul Yoga, in which case we may not be able to provide certain services to you.
