Club Towers Live Streaming Service
We live stream a proportion of our group exercise classes to the members of this service. We will inform you which classes are live streamed so that you can avoid these if you wish. Note that the live streamed classes are not made openly available on the internet and cannot be “downloaded”.
The resultant videos from these classes are stored in the On Demand section of the web-site for 7 days after the class and can be viewed by members of the service only. After 7 days, the videos are removed from the service.
Your marketing preferences
As a member’s Club, it is vital for us to be able to communicate with our members when necessary for the smooth running of the Club. This includes important correspondence such as:
- Records of transactions, such as payment receipts or Direct Debit confirmations (as applicable).
- Membership related mailings such as chasing outstanding balances, fee changes, notices of formal meetings and information about venue closures and holiday opening hours.
- Newsletters informing members about upcoming activities, facility closures, opening hours, upcoming events, health & safety issues, club rules, and similar items.
Therefore, when you sign up as a member of the Club, you are consenting for us to communicate with you on this basis, including us sending you our regular newsletter, which is published every two weeks.
Children: If you are a head member (i.e. you pay the membership fees) and you have any children as part of your membership, you have the option of providing their contact details (email and mobile phone number) to us, in addition to their name. If you choose to provide these, we will include them in any mailings (e.g. newsletters) that we send out to our members. If you choose not to provide them, then they will not be sent these mailings and all communication will come via the head member or a linked adult member.
Non-Members and Ex- Members
If you have provided your personal data to the Club but are not a member (or are no longer a member) you can choose what type of communication you want to receive from us and how you want to receive it.
Non-members (e.g. if you have visited the Club to view but not yet joined) will have the opportunity to choose whether we store your personal data and whether you wish to receive future communications from us.
Ex-members: when they leave, members will have the opportunity to choose whether they wish to continue to receive future communications from us.
We will always respect these choices.

Personal data collected and processed by us may be shared with the following third parties, where necessary:

How long your information is kept
We keep your personal data only for as long as necessary for each purpose we use it. For most membership data, this means we retain it for so long as you have a valid Club membership and for a period of two years after your last interaction with us (for accounting, tax reporting and record-keeping purposes).
Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:
- Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
- Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data only for direct marketing purposes.
- Request the restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal data about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it. You can also withdraw your consent, where this is the basis for our processing your data (without affecting the lawfulness of our previous processing based on consent).
- Request the transfer of your personal data to another party.
Please note that the above rights are not absolute, and we may be entitled to refuse requests where exceptions apply.
