Privacy & Cookies


This Privacy Policy relates to customer data processed and stored by Camelford Leisure Centre Ltd (CLC), a member owned Co-operative Society, registered with the FCA in England & Wales (reference 031555R) and with its registered office address at Station Road, Camelford, Cornwall, PL32 9UE.

Information may be collected in-person (for example when you are using the centre or making a booking), over the telephone, or online (such as through our website or our social media pages), in order:

– to fulfil your request for information or services

– to provide and improve our services

– as part of the process of consultation

– to prevent and detect fraud


CLC is the data controller. This Privacy Policy informs customers and users about the collection, use and sharing of personal information we collect through our website, other online portals (including social media), at the centre, through our outreach activities, and other services we offer.

This Privacy Policy is designed to protect you, our members and users, by informing you how personal information is collected, how we look after that information and with whom we share it.

CLC is committed to complying with the Data Protection Act 1998, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) from 25th May 2018 and The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003. By using our website, our centre and services, you are consenting to us processing your information in the ways stated here.


1. What information do we collect and why?

The basis on which we collect and process your data is usually through consent.  Sometimes there is a contractual reason such as being able to process a monthly direct debit payment.  Occasionally there may be a legal reason for collecting data, such as for employees when we have to collect the information for the HMRC, or, should you have an accident, we may need to provide details of this to the relevant health and safety authorities. We may also process your data based on our legitimate business interests for example in order to operate and improve our business.


2. The information we collect may include any of the following:

Any personal details you give us or we obtain from third parties.

Information you type into our website or provide to one of our colleagues such as when you become a member, make a booking, sign up as a volunteer, visit the centre or engage with us through an outreach event (for example, our stand at the Camelford Show). This information may include your personal contact data, health- or fitness-related data. We use this to provide you with the services you request, tell you about services you are eligible for, to keep in contact with you, manage your account and the services we provide. If you contact us by email, via the website, through social media channels (e.g. Facebook Messenger), in person or by telephone we may keep a record of your contact information and enquiry and may subsequently use your contact details to respond to your enquiry.

Information which allows us to recognise you.

Such as a unique member ID, an email address or your photograph; storing this data saves you from re-entering your details again when you return to the centre. We will use this information to ensure that your member access to the centre, or your access to other services that you have booked, are not misused if lost or stolen and helps us identify you to ensure we support you whilst using the centre and on activities that we run.

Details of your transactions.

We collect data for any transactions you carry out so that we can administer the services you have with us.

We may need to collect any personal health data you provide to us when registering and signing up for classes or other fitness services.  We collect this information to ensure we are offering you the right services and so your progress can be tracked by yourself and us. We may ask you for information about your health in order to recommend appropriate exercise regimes or offer our other services that may be suitable for you.

Banking data

We will store your bank account number and sort code data where you have a Direct Debit mandate in place.  When the Direct Debit mandate finishes we will remove this data from our operational systems within 30 working days.

We process bank card information at the time we take payment.  This data is not stored on our systems and is processed on Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard compliant banking systems.

Information about website visits including IP address.

The IP address is your computer’s individual identification number. We may use your IP address to capture information about website visits so we can learn more about how our customers use our website in order to find ways to improve the website and our products and services for your benefit. Please see our Cookie Policy for more information.

Customer feedback

We will record customer comments and surveys about how we are performing.

Other Sensitive data

We are sometimes required to collect information about your ethnicity and other sensitive data in order to provide aggregated reports to funders, a local authority or commissioning groups. This information is used only for statistical purposes and is always kept secure. If you prefer not to provide us with this data we will not hold this data.

Your communications preferences.

We keep a record of any permissions and preferences you give us about what types of communication you are happy to receive from us.


3. Data relating to children

Our services are used by people of all ages. CLC may collect personal information from individuals under the age of 13. If you are under 13 we do not allow you to post information about yourself in any CLC forums or community areas. CLC accepts no liability if this instruction is ignored.

Children aged under 13 years must have a parent or guardian’s consent before providing personal information to us. We do not wish to collect any personal information without this consent.


4. How do we store and protect your personal information?
