Data Protection & Privacy Policy

Equip CrossFit is strongly committed to the security and protection of members’ personal information and we do our utmost at all times to ensure privacy. We take the security and privacy of our customers very seriously. We strive to conform to the UK and European Data Protection laws. We do not share any information with unrelated third parties (unless required to by law), nor do we collect or retain any information other than that necessary for us to provide our services to you.


We will uphold the 6 principles for data processing: Lawfulness, fairness and transparency; Purpose limitation; Data minimisation; Storage limitation; Integrity & confidentiality (security), and Accountability. This policy aims to cover these principles.


There are two important roles regarding data use. These are:


Data Controllers– a person who (either alone, jointly or in common with other persons) determines the purposes for which, and the manner in which, any personal data is to be processed.


Data Processors– in relation to personal data, means any person (other than an employee of a data controller), who processes the data on behalf of the data controller.  (“Processing”, in relation to information/data, means obtaining, recording or holding the information/data or carrying out any operation or set of operations on it, including; organisation, adaptation or alteration of the information/data, retrieval, consultation or use of the information/data, disclosure of the information/data by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, or alignment, combination, blocking, erasure or destruction of the information/data.


Under these definitions, Equip CrossFit is a data controller, and wodify is both a data controller and processor. Wodify have their own procedures for their responsibilities which conform to BS7799-3 where relevant, or other best practices to ensure compliance with UK data protection laws. Please visit wodify for more information on wodify.


At present, Equip CrossFit only process personal data for core business purposes and so are exempt from registering with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) at this time. Should this change, this policy will be reviewed immediately.


We also ensure we obtain GDPR DPAs (Data Protection Agreements) from any company we use to process personal data, such as Mailchimp, Stripe, IZettle, etc.


What data do we collect?


If you email us or sign up for a service, or you contact us via our form, Equip CrossFit may obtain the following information: Name, Email Address, Address, and Phone Number



How do we obtain your data?


You directly supply Equip CrossFit with any data we collect. This is collected and processed when you register online and place an order for any of our products and services, voluntarily complete a customer survey or provide feedback on any of our products/services, or use/view our website via your internet browser’s cookies.


Equip CrossFit may also receive your data indirectly from Wodify Payments when a service is purchased (e.g., through , Wodify, PayPal etc). This may include Name, Email address, Address and service purchased.


How do we use this data?


We use members’ personal information only as necessary for us to provide our services to you. We do not share any information with unrelated third parties (unless required by law) nor do we collect or retain any information other than is required for the provision of our products or services. Information collected during the online registration process is stored securely and will be securely destroyed if it is no longer required by Equip CrossFit. Members may request details of personal information, which we hold under the Data Protection Act 1998 and General Data Protection Regulation 2016 (GDPR).  A small fee may be payable but is not usually charged, unless the request is manifestly unfounded or excessive; or an individual requests further copies of their data following a request. In these cases, a reasonable fee for the administration costs of complying with the request will be payable. Copies of this information can be obtained by writing to us at 
If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please write to or email us as soon as possible, at the above address. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect. We request all members check their details for accuracy annually and make any necessary changes. This includes re-completion of our waiver if any information has changed (e.g. address, phone number, medical conditions). Please note in order to receive emails from us, you need to ‘opt in’ to confirm your consent in order for us to comply with legal requirements. We require this to allow us to communicate with members effectively.


The data we collect is necessary to process your order, manage your account and email you as part of our update service. When your order is processed by our payment provider, wodify payments, it is possible that it may send your data to (and use the resulting information from) credit reference agencies and/or use their own software in order to prevent fraudulent purchases.



How do we store your data?


Equip CrossFit securely stores your data electronically.


Your data will be kept for a period of 1 year. Alternatively, you may email us at any time at and ask us to delete your data. If you ask to be removed, we will delete your data manually unless you have an ongoing service with us, in which case we will email you to ask to you review and update your details as outlined above.




Security of information


Personal information collected by Equip CrossFit and our website is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public. Security measures include strong, multiple password protected systems.


We will protect your personal information no matter where we process or store your data.

CCTV is in operation at Equip CrossFit. Signs are displayed to make all visitors and members aware of this, in front of the reception area. There are currently 2 cameras in operation, one monitoring the car park / main entrance and the other monitoring the rear of the building. New members are made aware of the presence of CCTV within ERM015a New Member Welcome Pack.

The Data Protection Officer has shared this policy with all staff members, so everyone is aware of our requirements under the Data Protection Act, General Data Protection Regulation and other relevant legislation. All staff have been made aware how to handle personal data (in this case not to share with anyone at any time unless required to by Law), and that it is a criminal offence to do so.

There are various contacts available on Equip CrossFit’s website, any of which can be used as an access point to information and complaints in relation to our CCTV.

We have utilised Appendix 2 from the CCTV Code of Practice (published June 2013, last updated Oct 2014) to ensure our compliance with CCTV requirements. This can be found at the end of this policy, entitled “CCTV checklist”.



Equip CrossFit utilises Zoom for remote coaching sessions where necessary. Due to the nature of personal images, we will not share these on social media without express permission from participants. Permission is granted/denied via ERM015b PAR-Q and Waiver or ERM018b PAR-Q and Wavier (U18) as applicable. 

Changes to our Policy

From time to time, it may be necessary for us to review and revise this Policy. We reserve the right to change our Policy at any time and should this occur, the amendment will be posted on our website and will be effective immediately. This policy was last reviewed 01/04/23.

Our business Terms and Conditions are also available on our website which outline how we use personal information. This is freely available information so anyone visiting our website can access it.

CCTV Checklist


  • Notification has been submitted to the Information Commissioner and the next renewal date recorded: Registration ZB110174, made 30/06/22. Renewal date 30/06/23


  • Named individual responsible for the operation of the system: Jonathan Pedlow


  • The problem we are trying to address has been clearly defined and installing cameras identified as the best solution. This decision is reviewed on a regular basis:

    • The CCTV is for capturing thefts and any incidents, and to back up staff if needed when working alone with a client.  Reviewed annually for effectiveness.


  • A system has been chosen which produces clear images, which law enforcement bodies (i.e.the police) can use to identify crime. These can easily be taken from the system when required.


  • Cameras have been sighted so that they provide clear images and cover the biggest areas possible. They have been positioned to avoid capturing the images of people not visiting the premises.


  • As mentioned in the policy text, there are visible signs showing that CCTV is in operation.


  • Images are securely stored on the CCTV server and only authorised staff have access to them. They will not be shared with any third party with the exception of law enforcement bodies.


  • The recorded images are wiped monthly. This is automatically actioned by the system. From past events this has shown to just be enough for incidents to come to light (e.g. thefts). Any shorter and these incidents risk being missed.


  • The potential impact on individuals’ privacy has been identified when taking into account the use of the system. Cameras are sited to film only that which would be in plain sight, and the monitor location has also been chosen bearing this in mind.


  • Equip CrossFit Ltd knows how to respond to individuals making requests for copies of their own images, and to seek advice from the Information Commissioner as soon as such a request is made.  Firstly, an offer for them to come and view the footage would be made, then a copy supplied if still requested. A third-party company (by means of a secrecy contract) would be used to blur out the faces of others if deemed necessary. Staff have been made aware it is a criminal offence to misuse CCTV footage


  • Regular checks are carried out to ensure the system is working properly and produces high quality images. Spiderwebs are cleaned off the external camera monthly, or more frequently if required and a signed record of this is kept (see ERM014a Cleaning & Maintenance Schedule). The CCTV viewing monitor is switched on at the start of each day to ensure the cameras are online and working properly. The date/time stamp is checked at least twice a year (accounting for daylight savings’ time) and the system is reviewed annually for effectiveness. The monitor is kept in a secure location away from public view.


  • In the future we plan to explore the Surveillance Camera Commissioner’s Third-Party Certification Scheme to evidence good practice.
