Member Retention Systems is a provider of online software that is simple, smart and secure and gives health clubs and leisure facilities the ability to track their members, track important tasks and eliminate paper from operations.
The Service involves the storage of data about a health club or leisure centre and of the members who use these facilities. That data can include personal information.
Personal information is information about an identifiable individual and may include information like the individual’s name, email address, telephone number and address, their progress and bookings.
This policy sets out how we collect, store and process your personal information. If you are a customer of one of our clients, for example, you are a member of a gym that uses our software platform, we only store and process your information, we do not own or control it. If you have a question about what data is collected, please contact directly the person requesting the data, for example, your gym.
You can browse this website anonymously. If you identify yourself to us, at that point we will collect your personal information.
