You have certain rights in relation to your personal data including the right to object to the processing of your information in certain circumstances. Further information about your rights is included in section 13 of this policy.
2. Personal Data
‘Personal data’ is any information that relates to a living, identifiable person. This data can include your name, contact details, and other information we gather as part of our relationship with you.
It can also include ‘special categories’ of data, which is information about a person’s race or ethnic origin, religious, political or other beliefs, physical or mental health, trade union membership, genetic or biometric data, sex life or sexual orientation. The collect and use of this type of data is subject to strict controls. Similarly, information about criminal convictions and offences is also limited in the way it can be processed.
We will collect your personal data mostly through our contact with you and the data is usually provided by you but in some instances, we may receive data about you from other people or organisations. We will explain when this might happen in this policy.
3. What information do we collect and why?
We are committed to protecting your personal data and will only process the data if we need to for a specific purpose and providing we have a legal basis, as explained below.
There are various legal bases on which we may collect and process your data. We may have your consent, for example, you have informed us that you are happy for us to process your information for a specific purpose such as providing a service to you or receiving further information about what we do. Sometimes there is a contractual reason such as being able to process a monthly direct debit payment and deliver our services to you. If so, we will not be able to enter into a contract with you in the absence of the data. Occasionally there may be a legal reason for collecting or sharing 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.
5. Data relating to children
Our services are used by people of all ages. SLM may accept website registrations and collect personal information from individuals under the age of 16. If you are under 16 we do not allow you to post information about yourself in any SLM forums or community areas. SLM accepts no liability if this instruction is ignored.
Children aged under 16 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.
SLM will not knowingly market to children aged under 16 years.
Proof of age maybe required and retained for access to some services.

SLM reserves the right to store and process information securely outside of the European Uni
Transfers of data outside of the EEA

8. Services provided by contracted third parties
We may share information with third party organisations that provide specific services on our behalf which enhance our products and your experience with us. These organisations act as a Data Processor under our instructions. They may process data securely outside of the EU. There is a contract in place with each third party which includes strict terms and conditions to protect your privacy.
Please note: Use of services provided by our partners Precor, Life Fitness and Technogym will be subject to the terms and conditions and/or Privacy Policies of these third party organisations. Please see the links to these third party terms that also apply above and beyond these here:

9. Services provided by other third parties
Sometimes third parties will use our centres for delivering their own service. Where this takes place the third party will remain the controller of the data for the services that they provide. The data will not enter our database unless the individuals that take part in these services also provide us with their personal data directly or already appear within our database.
For these Services the third-party will be responsible for upholding and responding to the rights of individuals. Third parties that currently fall into this category are;
10. Leisure and Health Partners
SLM runs services on behalf of other organisations such as Local Authorities, NHS, Clinical Commissioning Groups and Trusts. These services are often run under a franchise or contract agreement. Data may be shared with these organisations at a summary level but not at a personable identifiable level unless you have told us we may do so through your marketing preferences. For our health related services, with your consent, we may share identifiable information with your GP and NHS services.
At the end of the management contract, if the service is to be run by another operator, SLM will forward on your details to the new operator so they can continue to provide the service to you without interruption. If you do not wish us to do this please send a request to SLM Head Office.
These organisations will be a Data Controller in their own rights, and where they do process your data will inform you directly or through their services such as a website about the data they hold and what processing they undertake.
11. Marketing Partners
SLM will never sell your personal information to any third party for marketing or other purposes.
In some cases, SLM works in partnership with another organisation to provide services to you. In these cases, the partner may contact you for marketing purposes if you have given the partner organisation your permission to do so. SLM partners who fall into this category are:
- Westway Trust, based in north west London, who run activities and events that they provide for their local community.
