This Privacy Policy governs all data supplied to Wild Country Woman by a customer.

What types of information do we collect?

Personal Data

Personal data is only ever collected voluntarily by the customer and provided to Wild Country Woman - either via the website (Squarespace), booking system (TeamUp), booking forms (JotForm), newsletter sign up (MailChimp) or via email, phone or in person. 

Personal Data will only be used in ways that are in line with why it was originally provided. For example, we will not contact someone designated as your emergency contact for marketing purposes.

Sensitive Data 

When a customer signs up to a particular service, class or course, we will request information on current health, injuries and recent medical history as deemed relevant to the service to be provided. This information is collected in order to ensure that the customer is able to take part in a particular service, class or course, to personalise the service as required and to be in compliance with Wild Country Woman’s insurance policy. 

How do we collect personal information?

Personal information is collected directly from the User via email, the website (www.wildcountrywoman.com), via the booking system (TeamUp) or via a booking form (JotForm or Google Forms). In some cases information will be transferred from Jot Form, Squarespace, Google Forms or email to the Team Up booking system. This is usually when requested by the customer. 

Some personal and sensitive information will also be collected on paper based forms used in customer consultations or where the customer does not use online versions. This information is kept in paper form in a locked filing cabinet.
