Personal Data Collected at the Time of Booking a Class, workshop, or event with Emma Deery

A certain amount of personal data is collected by Emma Deery at the time of booking. This is for the purposes of meeting Insurance Company criteria as well as for your health and safety during our sessions. Health information is also used to tailor sessions to suit your individual needs.

All information gathered by Emma Deery through the online booking process is treated as confidential and will not be shared with a third party. If you grant permission, it is kept securely in the Acuity online booking system (see their Privacy Policy ), and only viewed by Emma Deery and the teacher of the class or service which you have booked.  My online payment processor is Stripe. Both Acuity and Stripe are GDPR compliant and you can view their privacy Policies here (https://acuityscheduling.com/privacy.php) (https://stripe.com/gb/privacy)

You may update or correct your account information and email preferences at any time by logging in to your https://app.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php?owner=15593110 and changing your account and profile settings.

My Insurance Company request that I keep a record of my customer’s data and registrations for seven years after your last class with me.

If you wish to alter any of your data, review how it is used or wish to request its return to you, please contact Emma Deery on emma@emmadeery.com

You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information to Emma Deery, in which case Emma Deery may not be able to provide certain services to you.
