Introduction

This privacy notice provides you with details of how I collect and process your personal data through your use of championrunning.co.uk, including information you may provide through my site when you sign up to my newsletter, or purchase a product or service.

Who I am

In this policy whenever you see the terms ‘I’, ‘Me’ or ‘My’, it refers to Liz Champion (Fitness writer and running coach).

What information do I collect about you?

I only collect details that I need:

  • to provide the service you have requested including subscriptions to newsletters, information about events, books, courses or coaching;
  • to keep you informed of publications that may interest you.

The personal information I collect may include:

  • your name including title;
  • your email address and telephone number;
  • a record of any correspondence between us;
  • details of any transactions you carry out via my website (only PayPal will hold your secure details);
  • and your contact preferences.

How will I use the information I collect?

I will only use your information for the purpose you provided it for or have given me prior consent for. This may include:

  • to process a booking or online purchase;
  • to hold a telephone conversation with you;
  • to send information about writing courses, coaching, events and publications that may be of interest to you;
  • to send you other information you may be interested in such as publications, including books, blogs or articles, and free writing resources.

How I share your information?

I never share your personal information with any third party or external organisations for any purpose. I work with carefully selected service providers who carry out some functions on my behalf. These service providers will act on my instructions and adhere to the EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). These include MailChimp for e-news and newsletters. Your information is stored securely and is password protected.

Email newsletter

I operate an email newsletter which is used to inform subscribers about products and services supplied by this website. Users can subscribe through an online automated process should they wish to do so but do so at their own discretion. All personal information is held securely.

Email marketing campaigns

My email marketing campaigns may contain tracking facilities within the actual email. Subscriber activity is tracked and stored in a database for future analysis and evaluation. Such tracked activity may include: the opening of emails, forwarding of emails, the clicking of links within the email content, times, dates and frequency of activity. This information is used to improve future email campaigns and supply the user with more relevant content based around their activity.

Subscribers have the opportunity to un-subscribe at any time through an automated system, which is available at the footer of each email.

Online payments

I use PayPal to process online payments. Your information is only ever known to PayPal, not to me.

I ensure that any transfer of data is done securely, in accordance with best practice and in accordance with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

Marketing

I will never sell or pass your personal data to a third party for marketing purposes. I will only use your data to contact you myself if you have given me permission.

How I store your data and keep it secure

I take all reasonable steps to ensure your data is kept secure. I hold personal data in electronic form.

I will keep your information only for as long as I need it to provide you with the goods, services or information you have requested. All electronic information is password protected. You can unsubscribe from my mailing list at any time.

I am committed to ensuring that your information is secure. To prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, I have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information I collect online.

Links to other websites

My website may have links to other websites that may be of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave my site, you should note that I do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, I cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites, and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement.
