As someone who purchases a Beyond Swim pass, we process personal information including:

- profiling details – for example where you heard about Beyond Swim, what type of swimmer you are, what content you would like.
- payment details – credit/debit card details (which we do not retain) and other payment details such as bank account number, sort code, card details so we can receive payments from you and details of the financial transactions with you;

How we collect personal data
We may collect your personal information in a number of ways, principally:

- From someone else acting on your behalf, for example if another purchases a Beyond Swim pass as a gift.
- On rare occasions, we may receive information about you from others who are not acting on your behalf (for example, where someone makes a complaint about you which we then investigate)

We will only keep your personal information for as long as necessary to provide you with Swim Pass services. Unless you ask us not to, we will review and possibly delete your personal information where you have not renewed your Swim Pass with us for six years.
We will keep certain personal information of members for longer in order to confirm your identity, when you were a Beyond Swim pass holder and for how long.
