Special category data – swimmers’ medical details (appropriate to swimming).
The safety of our swimmers is of paramount importance to us. Given the nature of swimming, it is essential that Water Wizards teachers are aware of any health issues that could impact a member’s safety, particularly when poolside. We therefore require each member to provide us with detail relating to any health issues that in your judgement you feel the swim school should be made aware of. Any such medical information you provide to us is held by us in both hard copy and electronic form and is used solely for the safety of your swimmer, and will only be shared with authorised personnel of Water Wizards Swim School and will not be shared with any other third party without seeking your permission first, unless duty bound to do so, by law.
This type of personal date is classed as “Special category data” and we require your consent to hold and process such special category data. If you choose to provide us with any medical conditions related to swimming we will require your consent via email or your signature on the membership form as our means of discharging our responsibility.
