This policy sets out how NELIY complies with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) to ensure that the personal data of members and non-members are kept in a secure environment.
What information do we collect about you?
NELIY holds personal data about members and non-members. By joining NELIY as a member or by booking to attend an event held by NELIY you are giving your consent to us to hold this information.
Joining NELIY as a member
When you join NELIY or renew your membership this is done through the Iyengar Yoga (UK)’s website. NELIY’s membership secretary via a password protected portal to the IY(UK)’s database obtains details of your name, email address, mobile/telephone number and whether you are a teacher or non-teacher.
Attending events held by NELIY
When booking an event on our website, we ask you for your email address and telephone number. Any further personal data, processed through PayPal secure payment system, are not held by NELIY.
Why do we hold this information?
Members of NELIY
We hold personal data to be able to manage your membership of NELIY and to contact you about information relevant to your membership and by adding you to our mailing list for any forthcoming events. Your telephone number is required for any unforeseen cancellation to a workshop you may be attending.
Non-members of NELIY
Following your first booking for a NELIY event your email address is added to our mailing list so we can keep you informed of forthcoming events held by NELIY. Your telephone number is required for any unforeseen cancellation to the workshop.
What is our Mailing list?
NELIY’s mailing list is designed to give members and non-members details of forthcoming events. If a member or non-member does not wish to be on the mailing list for events he or she can unsubscribe by emailing our data protection officer with the subject line “UNSUBSCRIBE”. (Website link to Data Protection Officer’s email address)
How long will we store your information?
Members’ personal data will be held while they are members of NELIY. However, email addresses will remain on the mailing list even if a member leaves, unless NELIY is advised that they want to unsubscribe.
In the case of email enquires we’ll store your details for up to one year.
Who has access to your information?
Your personal data is stored on our website and access to the information is restricted to the website administrator, data protection officer, specific committee members who require access for membership and events and contractors working on NELIY’s information and communication systems.
