We gather and use information about our users in order to provide products and services, and to enable the website to function as intended.
We also use this information to better understand how users interact with our brand and to improve the overall user experience.
What data we gather
We may collect the following information:
· Customer name
· Address, e-mail and telephone contact details
· Demographic information, such as postcode, preferences and interests
· Information deemed ‘sensitive’, such as medical information relevant to the personal training service being offered
· Website usage data
· Other information relevant to client enquiries
· Other information pertaining to special offers and surveys
How We Use This Data
When you supply personal details to either an Coach Me Slim & Trim licensee (“they” or “them”) or directly to Coach Me Slim & Trim (“we” or “us), they are stored and processed by both parties. The reasons and nature of this storage and processing is laid out below
· We need to collect personal information in order that we can provide you with a safe, effective and quality service. The service provided to you, and the Coach Me Slim & Trim licensee’s agreement to provide it to you, constitutes a contract with you and them. You have the right to deny this information to them, but in doing so they would not be able to deliver their service to you.
· We (Coach Me Slim & Trim) have access to, and occasionally process, personal information in order that we can support them in delivering a better service to you. Details of the ways this information is sometimes processed* is contained below. You have the right to deny any of this information to us (Coach Me Slim & Trim) – just let us know by any convenient method.
· According to laws explained within the GDPR, we have a “legitimate Interest” in collecting that information, because without it we would be restricted in the support we offer our licensed Coach Me Slim & Trim personal trainers to deliver the best service to you.
· We would like to contact you in future if the opportunity arises that your service could be improved in any way. This may include requesting feedback from you or to resolve any complaints that may arise. This again constitutes “legitimate Interest”, but this time it is your legitimate interest.
· Provided we have your consent, we may occasionally send you general information or news about Coach Me Slim & Trim that we think is either relevant or helpful to you, in the form of articles, advice or newsletters. You may withdraw this consent at any time – just let us know by any convenient method.
· We never share personal information with third parties, unless it is deemed necessary or relevant to the improvement or up-keep of the service being offered. The type of third parties with whom information is sometimes shared, and the nature of the usage of this information, is explained below.
· In the case when information is collected during a customer enquiry that you have made, wherein you do not end up paying for any Coach Me Slim & Trim-related services, we will retain your information for a maximum period of 6 months after the date of the enquiry. This is to allow us to offer a smoother and more efficient service should contact be made with you within that time. If no contact has been made with you after 6 months then we will remove your information
· We do not take or store any kind of payment details on this site.
Methods Of Storage
Your records are stored in the following ways:
1. Information deemed ‘sensitive’, such as medical information relevant to the service being offered, is stored on paper, in locked filing cabinets, by Coach Me Slim & Trim licensees only. We (Coach Me Slim & Trim) do not have access to this information nor will we request it from them without your expressed consent.
2. Other personal information, including contact details, address and other non-sensitive information related to your health and fitness is stored electronically (“in the cloud”), using two online storage applications. This information is accessible by both the respective Coach Me Slim & Trim licensee and Coach Me Slim & Trim. Our providers have given us their assurances that they are fully compliant with the General Data Protection Regulations. Access to this data is password protected, and the passwords are changed regularly.
We will never share your data with anyone who does not need access without your written consent. Only the following people/agencies will have routine access to your data:
· Your licensed Coach Me Slim & Trim personal trainer, in order that they can provide you with your service
· Coach Me Slim & Trim, in order that we are able to both support the personal trainers within our licence who are providing a service to you, and secondly to communicate with you directly regarding any matters which constitute your “legitimate interest”.
From time to time, we may have to employ consultants to perform tasks which might give them access to your personal data (but never your medical information). We will ensure that they are fully aware that they must treat that information as confidential, and we will ensure that they sign a non-disclosure agreement.

Information We Process With Your Consent
Through certain actions when otherwise there is no contractual relationship between us, such as when you browse our website or ask us to provide you more information about our business, and our products and services, you provide your consent to us to process information that may be personal information.
Wherever possible, we aim to obtain your explicit consent to process this information. Sometimes you might give your consent implicitly, such as when you send us a message by e-mail to which you would reasonably expect us to reply.
We may process special category health data in order to deliver our products and services. We will obtain explicit consent from you before processing this category of data.
Except where you have consented to our use of your information for a specific purpose, we do not use your information in any way that would identify you personally. We may aggregate it in a general way and use it to provide class information, for example to monitor the performance of a particular page on our website.
If you have given us explicit permission to do so, we may from time to time pass your name and contact information to selected associates whom we consider may provide services or products you would find useful.
We continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists. You may withdraw your consent at any time by instructing us firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information We Process For The Purposes Of Legitimate Interests
We may process information on the basis there is a legitimate interest, either to you or to us, of doing so.
Where we process your information on this basis, we do after having given careful consideration to:
1. whether the same objective could be achieved through other means
2. whether processing (or not processing) might cause you harm

1. record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of our business
2. responding to unsolicited communication from you to which we believe you would expect a response
3. protecting and asserting the legal rights of any party
4. insuring against or obtaining professional advice that is required to manage business risk
5. protecting your interests where we believe we have a duty to do so
Information we process because we have a legal obligation
We are subject to the law like everyone else. Sometimes, we must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation.
For example, we may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorisation such as a search warrant or court order. This may include your personal information.
