Privacy policy

No one likes to receive annoying spam or find that their private information has been passed onto a third party without consent. So at Central YMCA we take your privacy and data very seriously.

You can be assured that:

  • we do not sell, rent or lease customer lists to third parties
  • we only send you emails we think you will find useful and only after obtaining your consent; you can stop them at any time by using the unsubscribe link in the emails you receive
  • we never disclose sensitive personal information – such as race, religion, or political affiliations – without your explicit consent
  • we are committed to protecting the security of your personal information by using robust technology and procedures

To continually improve our service, we may collect, use and disclose your information as described in this policy.

For further information, please read the policy below. The policy applies to data collection and usage on the Central YMCA website and services.

On selected pages, we may ask for personal information such as your:

  • email address
  • name
  • home or work address
  • telephone number
  • postcode
  • age
  • gender

We ask for this information in order to contact you, provide you with useful information or otherwise provide a service to you.

Use of your personal information

Improving your online experience

We may track the pages you visit on this website and collect certain information about your computer hardware and software including:

  • your IP address
  • device type
  • browser type
  • access times
  • referring website addresses

We use this information to improve our service to you, by improving the design and functionality of this website and creating useful and informative content. We may also contact you to conduct research about your opinion of current or potential new services that may be offered.

We also use your personal information to let you know about products or services available from Central YMCA and its affiliates.

Third parties

Central YMCA and its operational partners collect and use your personal information to operate and deliver services to you. These services may include the display of customised content and advertising based upon the information collected.

Certain services we offer may be co-branded and provided in conjunction with another company. If you register for or use such services, both Central YMCA and the other company may receive information collected in conjunction with the co-branded services.

From time to time, we may contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offer that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your personal information is not transferred to the third party. We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services.

We only provide those companies the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

To protect YMCA Club and our customers

We may access and/or disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:

  • conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Central YMCA
  • protect and defend the rights or property of Central YMCA, including its family of websites
  • act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of YMCA Club services or members of the public.

Security of your personal information

We are committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorised access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities.

Personal information collected on this site may be stored and processed in the United Kingdom or any other country in which Central YMCA or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using this site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.

Changes to this statement

We will occasionally update this policy to reflect statutory changes and customer feedback. If there are material changes to this policy or in how we use your personal information, we will post such changes prior to implementing the change.
