Privacy Policy

ActiveTrainingWorld Ltd Trading as ActiveTrainingWorld


ActiveTrainingWorld takes your privacy seriously. This privacy policy describes how and why we obtain, store and process data which can identify you.  We may update this policy from time to time and shall indicate on the bottom of this document with a date of last review.

The Information we collect

Information is collected from you when you register with us, enter an event or download one of our free online training plans. The information we collect is clearly set out on the online form on which we collect it.

Why we collect it

We collect information about you so that we can personalise your use of the site, assist your use of the site and improve the site generally.  Depending upon your selections for our data protection questions we may arrange for you to be sent information about related products and services from us and carefully selected third parties (see section on ‘Who we disclose it to’).  You may update the answers to your questions at any time. All mass emails sent out have the facility to unsubscribe. Emails sent out individually (usually in response to a query) or requesting further information may not have this facility. There is also no option to unsubscribe from receiving race information prior to an event.

Who we disclose it to

ActiveTrainingWorld organise events but also handle online entries for other race organisers. Each race organiser has access to an admin panel where they can see all the personal data for people registered for their events only. You are advised to check with each event organiser to understand their privacy policies which will be separate and not covered by ActiveTrainingWorld’s privacy policy.

We will only pass on information about you as an individual (as opposed to aggregate information) to third parties to enable us to perform services requested by you or with your prior consent. This includes the medical team at events and the event timing company. We also work closely with charities and many of our events support them. We may pass on information to those charities we work with if it is relevant to the event you have been / are interested in. Where a donation is made to the charity by you and gift aid applies your details will be passed to the charity and the Inland Revenue to enable the charity to reclaim the tax.

In certain circumstances we may need to disclose information about you if you breach this privacy policy or if you breach the Terms and Conditions.  We may also disclose or access your account if required to do so by law or by any Governmental body.
