Data security is of great importance to Blue Wave Swim School and to protect your Data we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure Data collected via this Website, registration forms and our camera. 

We endeavour to do our best to protect your personal Data. However, transmission of information over the internet is not entirely secure and is done at your own risk. We cannot ensure the security of your Data transmitted to the Website 100%.

How do we protect your personal information?

We have a legal duty to make sure we hold your personal information (on paper and electronically) in a secure way, and to only make it available to those who have a right to see them. Examples of our security include:

1. Controlling access to systems and networks allows us to stop people who are not allowed to view your personal information from getting access to it

2. Encryption, meaning that information is hidden so that it cannot be read without special knowledge (such as a password)

3. Training for our staff allows us to make them aware of how to handle personal information, and how and when to report when something goes wrong

4. Regular testing of our technology and ways of working, including keeping up to date on the latest security updates (commonly called patches)

Information outside of the European Union

Your personal information is stored on systems in the UK or EU. However, there might be rare occasions where your information may leave the UK/EU either to get to another organisation, or where it is stored in a system outside of the EU. We have additional protections on your personal information if it leaves the UK.

How long do we keep your personal information?

We will only hold your personal information for as long as it is necessary to fulfil our legal duties or business purposes.

There’s often a legal reason for keeping your personal information for a set period of time, and we will include information about retention periods in the ‘Our use of Data’ provided above.
