Information we collect from you

We supply forms on our website for you to contact us about our services which ask you for information including your name, email, telephone and how we can help you. You may also contact us over the telephone and provide personal information.

We offer you the opportunity to sign up to receive our regular newsletter. We also offer you the chance to sign up for free guides in PDF format. For both of these we ask for your name and email address and in provding and submitting this information you are consenting to receive such information from us.

We also take payment information from you if you purchase our 30 Day Trial.

If you become a member of Apex Pro Fitness we will fill out a paper based PAR-Q form. This will collect name, date of birth, address, email address, brief medical history and any injuries which are all relevant in making a personalised fitness programme. You will also be asked to sign up to our booking system where you will provide basic customer data. All forms of data collection are done securely and in line with GDPR principles.

We automatically collect technical information from your website visit including your IP address, browser, operating system and pages you visit. This does not contain personally identifiable information.

What we do with the information

For information you supply to us through the website forms we will contact you purely in relation to your enquiry. We will use this to communicate with you and to answer any questions you may have.

For payments made for the 30 Day Trial we will verify the payment and then contact you directly to arrange your initial 121 consultation.

If you become a member and complete a PAR-Q form, we will use this to create a personalised fitness programme. You will be informed that this information is stored and viewed by our staff and is not shared with any third parties unless permission and consent is obtained from yourself.

All clients will also have a progression and training record which is kept securely alongside the PAR-Q form.

If you have signed up to our newsletter then you will receive regular news and offers, potentially including further free guides. This newsletter will always include an unsubscribe link should you no longer wish to receive these emails.

For technical data which we collect automatically, we use this for internal operations including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research, statistical and survey purposes. Again this information is anonymous and does not contain personally identifiable information.

How we receive and store this information

We receive your enquiry from our website in an email which is handled by our website provider – Way Fresh. More information on how they handle their data can be found on their own website at: www.wayfresh.co.uk/privacy-policy/
