At EquiMotion, we are completely committed to protecting your privacy and we take our responsibilities very seriously. We promise to keep the personal data you share with us safe and secure, only use it for the purposes for which it was collected, and not do anything that wouldn’t be reasonably expected.
EquiMotion operates using an ‘opt-in / opt-out’ communications policy. This means all new clients will only receive marketing communications via SMS or email channels if they have expressly given their ‘opt-in’ permission, whilst they could receive live telephone and postal communications unless they have expressly ‘opted-out’ of these channels.
The purpose of this policy is to give you a clear explanation about how EquiMotion collects and uses the personal information you provide to us whether online, in person, via phone, email, in letters or in any other correspondence or from third parties.
We ensure that we use your information in accordance with all applicable laws concerning the protection of personal information including the Data Protection Act 2018 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR) 2003. This policy explains:

How do we collect information?
We will obtain personal contact information from you when you enquire or register for one of our activities, subscribe to receive a digital or postal communication, or otherwise provide us with personal information. You may receive follow up information from us that is relevant to this activity
What information do we collect?
We receive, collect and store any information you enter on our website or provide us in any other way. In addition, we collect the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; login; e-mail address; password; computer and connection information and purchase history. We may use software tools to measure and collect session information, including page response times, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information, and methods used to browse away from the page. We also collect personally identifiable information (including name, email, date of birth, password, communications, and relevant health information); payment details (including debit/credit card information), comments, feedback, reviews, recommendations, and personal profile.
Google Analytics is also used on this website to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns, which are stored against unique IDs (i.e. strings of numbers). We collect this information for the legitimate business purpose of monitoring website traffic and visitor demographics, which in turn enables us to make improvements to our website and services. This information is only processed in a way that does not identify anyone. It is kept indefinitely.
How do we use this information?
We use the information we receive to:
Register you to take part in EquiMotion activities
Keep a record of your participation with us
Enable us to record how you’d like to hear from us
Understand how we can keep improving our products, services and information
Ensure we are being compliant with applicable laws and regulations
Occasionally invite you to participate in surveys from EquiMotion so we can continually improve what we do.
Please be assured that we will not, under any circumstances, share your data with anyone for marketing purposes and you will not receive offers from other companies or organisations as a result of giving your details to us.
We may need to share limited information with our service providers who help us to prepare and issue our communications or manage our services. However, we will not allow these organisations to use your data for their own purposes and will take care to ensure that they keep your data secure.
How we store, use, share and disclose personal information
Our company is hosted on the Wix.com platform. Wix.com provides us with the online platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data may be stored through Wix.com’s data storage, databases and the general Wix.com applications. They store your data on secure servers behind a firewall.
All direct payment gateways offered by Wix.com and used by our company adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers. We may need to disclose your details, if required, to the police, regulatory bodies or legal advisors.
Keeping your information up to date and changing the way we communicate with you
It is incredibly important that we are able to keep your information up to date and as accurate as possible. This is part of our obligation in order to comply with data protection law. We’d also like to be able to stay in touch with you however you want us to.

We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary and to ensure we are compliant with all legal and regulatory obligations. If you request that we stop sending you marketing materials we will keep a record of your contact details and appropriate information that helps us to comply with your request not to be contacted by us.
Asking us to stop using your data and finding out about the information we hold on you
You have a right to ask us to stop processing your personal data, and assuming that it’s not essential for the purpose you provided it for (e.g. registering for an activity), we will do so. Get in touch with us on 07891 051974 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any concerns.
