Data Protection Requirement Statement issued by Carolyn Bennett

Data Protection Officer: Carolyn Bennett

Contact details: or 07784557564.

In compliance with the General Data Protection Requirement I can confirm the following about how I store and manage student information. 

When a student joins a Yoga4allseasons class they are asked to complete a contact and health questionnaire. These are standard forms used for all my clients regardless of where I see them. These forms are an insurance requirement, email and telephone details are used to inform you of class changes, service updates and information directly related to my yoga classes. All details on this form are only used by myself. 

Paper forms

All forms completed by students are stored in a locked metal filing cabinet at my home, I am the only key holder and nobody else has access to it. As per my insurance terms student’s forms are kept for 7 years. Archived forms (ie from a person no longer attending the class) are kept for 7 years from the date of the last class attended. Child/minor health forms are kept for 7 years after the age of 18. After 7 years archived forms will be disposed of using a cross cut shredder. 

Electronic record keeping

Students names and email addresses are added to an excel spreadsheet for class attendance records. This file/workbook is password protected and encrypted. This is for my information only and is never shared with other organisations. Where possible Mailchimp is used for email purposes, this is a secure permission based email system which are GDPR compliant, (see their privacy notice at when you attend one of my classes you will be invited to ‘opt-in’ to my email mailing list, you can choose not to receive emails from Yoga4allseasons by not subscribing, preferences can be altered or you can unsubscribe at any time using the function within the email. If students enquire by email then these emails are only kept as long as is necessary and details are not added to my records. I may also use telephone numbers or direct contact email (not Mailchimp) to contact you about urgent class changes, if you do not want me to contact you in this way please inform me in person or by emailing

Emergency contact information

Emergency contact information is collected solely for use in an emergency, should I need to contact your next of kin or give this information to the emergency services. This is the only information that would be shared with a third party and only in the context of an emergency.
