Sensitive Information: The term "sensitive information" in this context refers to information related to your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health, criminal background or trade union membership.

CCTV: Our partners use CCTV for health and security reasons. If you have any queries in relation to the use of CCTV operating in and around these clubs please contact us.

The above information may be used for the following purposes:

  • To carry out our obligations arising from any contractual agreement, and to provide you with the information and products or services you request. These may include the facilitation of class bookings and the provision of services to us by our agreed third party providers;
  • To process payments and maintain accounts and records, to prevent crime and aid in the prosecution of offenders, and to maintain membership records;
  • To improve our platform, prevent or detect fraud or abuses of our website and enable third parties to carry out technical, logistical, research or other functions on our behalf;
  • To send you newsletters and promotions and to conduct surveys, prize draws, competitions and other promotions via email, telephone or post;
  • To provide you, or permit selected third parties to provide you, with information about goods or services we feel may interest you.

  • To notify you about changes to our services or terms and conditions.

Data Capture Information

We adhere to strict security procedures covering the storage of your information in order to prevent unauthorised access and to comply with the terms of the Data Protection Act 1998. We may ask for proof of identity or for other personal information before we can process any enquiry further.

Marketing

Please note that your information may be used to send you details of products or services we offer and have identified as likely to be of interest to you. This will be in accordance with the preferences that you indicated when you completed your initial application form or any document completed in club. Opt-out options are detailed within the communication sent by TWCFC.

Disclosures

Information about our users is an important part to our business and we do not sell it to others. TWCFC shares member information only as described in this Privacy Policy.

We have business partners and employ other companies and individuals to perform certain functions on our behalf. Examples include sending postal mail and e-mail, analysing data, providing marketing assistance and providing debt collection assistance. Third party service providers have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but will not use it for other purposes. Additionally, they must process the personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and as permitted by the UK's Data Protection Act 1998 (as amended). We will only disclose personal information to reputable companies and suppliers we engage to process data on our behalf.

We release account and other personal information to third parties when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our membership or other agreements; or protect the rights, property or safety of TWCFC, our users or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. This does not include selling, sharing or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from members for commercial purposes in a way that is contrary to the commitments made in this Privacy Policy.

TWCFC reserves the right to forward a members information to a third party debt collection agency in the event of non-payment of fees when due.

If the personal information you provide us is sensitive personal data within the meaning of the Data Protection Act 1998, such information, will only be disclosed with your full consent.

Other Websites

Our website may contain links to other websites that are outside our control and are not covered by this Privacy Policy. If you access other sites using the links provided, the operators of these sites may collect information from you that will be used by them in accordance with their privacy policy, which may differ from ours.

Internet Based Transfers

Given that the Internet is a global environment, using it to collect and process personal data necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. This means for instance that data you pass to us may be processed outside the European Economic Area, although the data will always be held securely and in line with the requirements of UK data protection legislation. By communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge and agree to our processing of personal data in this way.
