Simply Dancing Ltd ("Simply Dancing Partners", "we," "us," "our") is committed to protecting your privacy. We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully in accordance with all UK data protection legislation including the principles of the UK Data Protection Act 1998 (the “Act”), any subsequent amendments thereto and all legislation implementing the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679).
Our Policy ensures that any information you provide us remains private and secure. To reassure you, below we provide details of the information you provide to us, and how it will and, more importantly, will not be used. We will never collect sensitive information about you without your explicit consent. The information we hold will be accurate and up to date. You can check the information that we hold about you by contacting us. If you find any inaccuracies we will delete or correct it promptly.
By using any of our services (including our website) and by providing us with any personal data, you are consenting to the use of that information as set out in this policy.
Please do not send us any information if you do not want it to be used in this way.
Personally Identifiable Information - Collection of PII that we collect
We collect personally identifiable information ("PII") that is volunteered during Registration or in response to specific information requests explicitly presented to you.
We may also collect your IP (Internet Protocol) address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer this Website. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. Your IP address is also used to help identify you during a particular session and to gather broad demographic data.
We may ask for your e-mail address during your use of the Website. Also, to purchase lessons or other services you may be requested to provide any or all of the following PII: first and last name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number. If you supply goods or services to us we will request your bank details in order to pay you. This data is entered directly into our online banking service and will not be used for any other purpose.
If you give us information on behalf of someone else, you confirm that the other person has appointed you to act on his/her behalf and has agreed that you can (i) give consent on his/her behalf to the processing of his/her personal data and (ii) receive on his/her behalf any data protection notices.
Use and Sharing of PII
All PII is retained in accordance with UK data protection laws.
We use PII to provide you with information about Simply Dancing Partners, to properly provide you with the Service and, where we have your consent, for marketing ourselves to you. It is our policy not to sell or pass any PII to any other organisations (outside our group companies) unless we are required to do so for fraud prevention and detection. We will never sell or rent your PII to anyone else for their marketing purposes without your consent.
However, we may pass your PII to our agents and subcontractors to help us with any of our uses of your data set out in this Policy. For example, we may use third parties to provide us with marketing or customer service assistance or send it to a credit card provider to process a payment.
We also always reserve the right to disclose PII in order to:
- comply with applicable laws;
- respond to governmental enquiries (or enquiries from a legal, governmental or quasi-governmental or local authority agency or Internet protection agency of any type);
- comply with a valid legal process or procedure; or
- protect our rights or property, this Website, and/or other users of this Website.
Please note that as part of any PII sharing which we list above, we may send your information internationally including to countries outside the European Economic Area. Some places outside of the EEA may not have adequate data protection laws at all or may offer differing levels of protection of personal information which are not as high as in the UK. Where we use third parties (see above) to provide elements of our service and/or to process data on our behalf they are bound by law or contract to protect your personal data and only use it in accordance with our instructions. We only allow such third parties to handle your personal data on the understanding that they will keep the information confidential and when we have confirmed that they apply appropriate data protection and security controls. If a service provider is located outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) we will at all times ensure a data protection level equal to the one in the EEA.
Personal data which you submit to us will only be retained for as long as is required for the purposes for which it was collected. We will also take into account our need to meet any legal, statutory or regulatory obligations. Our need to use or retain your information will be reassessed on a regular basis and information which is no longer required will be disposed of.
