Purpose and objectives
This policy forms part of Yoga-on-Tay’s commitment to the safeguarding of personal data processed by its members. (Processing has a very broad definition, and includes activities such as creating, storing, consulting, amending, disclosing and destroying data.) Its objectives are:
To help owners, teachers and administrative support at Yoga-on-Tay recognise personal data
To help them understand their rights and obligations with respect to personal data.
Yoga-on-Tay processes the personal data of people who are making use of or deliver our services (attending and booking yoga classes and private lessons, and people who rent our space, and teachers). This processing is regulated by the General Data Protection Regulations
The policy applies to the owners, teachers and administrative support at Yoga-on-Tay. It relates to their storage and processing of personal data on personal computers and also relates to paper files and records created for the purposes of conducting Yoga-on-Tay activities.
Security of Personal Data
Owners, teachers and administrative support at Yoga-on-Tay processing personal data should ensure that any data they are using is secure and that appropriate measures are taken to prevent unauthorised access, disclosure and loss.
Yoga-on-Tay records containing personal data should only be shared with other teachers as necessary (in most cases that is the completion of the registration form and health declaration – and any additional information about specific needs/issues relevant to the safe and wholesome practice of yoga).
Personal data of Yoga-on-Tay customers and teachers should only be stored on the systems provided by Yoga-on-Tay for a specific purpose (through the WIX website, its booking system and associated Ascend mailing system) –password protected, and passwords never shared with third parties), or in paper records. All users must always log out of WIX after a session. The only other digital storage of personal data of Yoga-on-Tay customers will be on the owners’ computer, in password protected files.
Manual/paper personal data should be stored in a secure location.
Personal data will be securely destroyed when no longer required, with consideration for the format of the data.
Personal data must not be disclosed unlawfully to any third party.
All losses of personal data must be reported immediately (within 24 hours) to the owners of Yoga-on-Tay.
Records in all formats containing personal data must be created, stored and disposed of when no longer required. While in use, they must be authentic, reliable and usable, and capable of speedy and efficient retrieval.
Registration files must be retained for no longer than necessary in the context of accessing or delivering services: where students, teachers or other users have not attended or booked classes for over 3 years, or taught classes or rented our space for a period of over 3 years, their personal data (both held on paper, digitally or on the booking system) will be destroyed securely.
