Furthermore, the way we use, store and protect any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will also be detailed within this notice.

In summary, your personal data remains confidential and will only be used for the overall management of your care. Any information you give us is used exclusively by Zing Wellness. Zing Wellness will never sell your personal data to a third party. We may use your contact details provided as a form of communication with regards to appointment times, future sessions, promotions or cancellations. You have the right to withdraw this ‘consent to be contacted’ (in writing) at any time.

The information we collect

A certain amount of personal data such as your name, email, address and telephone number or information relating to your medical background and lifestyle choices is collected by Zing Wellness. This information is used to identify you and contact you about the appointments and classes you have booked. It is for the purposes of meeting insurance company criteria as well as for your health and safety when having a massage or Pilates class. Health information is also used to tailor sessions to suit your individual needs and ensure your experience is as effective as possible.

Whilst you use the website we also receive information about your computer such as your IP address, operating system and browser details. This information helps us provide a better website experience for you.

When you buy a gift voucher we collect personal details such as your name, email, recipient’s name and possibly a postal address. This information is used to identify you and provide the service you have requested.


When you provide us with your personal information in the process of booking a Pilates class or massage treatment, making payment, completing your client health questionnaire or contacting us about our services, you are giving your consent to us collecting that information and using it for that specific reason.

We will not use your personal information for any secondary reason, like marketing, unless we have asked you directly for consent to do so.

How do I withdraw my consent?

For the purpose of legal protection we are required to hold the personal information you have given to us in the course of providing you with a massage and/or Pilates service and the notes about those sessions for a minimum of seven years.  Seven years after your last treatment we will permanently delete all your personal information that we hold.  If you withdraw your consent during the seven year retention period, we will archive your data until the seven year period expires.  Whilst your information is archived, we will not access or process it in any way except if needed for legal protection or if I’m required to do so by law.

Should you wish to withdraw your consent at any time please email hello@zingwellness.co.uk with your request.

How can I access, update or amend my personal information?

You have the right to review the personal information we store about you and your Pilates and/or massage sessions at any time. These will be sent by email, in a PDF document attachment.  You also have the right to request we update or amend your data if it is incorrect. To action any of these rights at any time please email hello@zingwellness.co.uk with your request.


Unless required to do so by law, we will not otherwise share, sell or distribute any of the information you provide to us without your consent.

Data handling & storage

Booking System

We use software called ‘Acuity’ to administer our online bookings. By booking through ‘Acuity’ your name, address, email, and phone-numbers, plus a record of the sessions you have booked, is stored on a system that only James and Angela Rake have access to. By booking this way you are agreeing to let us store your data in Acuity and send you the reminder e-mails and texts via Acuity.  You may update or correct your account information at any time by logging in to your Acuity account and changing your settings.  You can see Acuity’s Privacy Policy via this link: https://acuityscheduling.com/privacy.php

On booking you are also asked to agree to a list of terms and conditions.  You are asked for your consent for us to send you occasional emails telling you of upcoming events or changes to my services (through a secure permission-based email system called MailChimp). You can unsubscribe from the Mail Chimp emails at any time by using the link at the bottom of each email.  You can see Mail Chimp’s privacy policy via this link: www.mailchimp.com

Payment processing

Your payment is processed by Stripe which accepts most debit and credit cards or iZettle for card payments in person.  We never store your credit card details it is always processed by third-parties. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Security Standard (PCI-DSS).  Stripe offer a service whereby you can pay quickly using credit or debit card details previously stored with them. We can’t see your stored card details or information. Braintree and iZettle all adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

You can find out more about Stripe and their security here:  https://stripe.com/gb/privacy

Client health questionnaire 

We ask everyone who books a massage or Pilates class to fill in an online client health questionnaire. This service is provided by JotForm and is secure.  Please see JotForm’s Privacy Policy here:  https://www.jotform.com/privacy/

This asks you for your name, address and phone-numbers a large amount of health information.

To be able to do our job, we need to ask you information about health conditions and injuries. It is very important you give accurate and current information to us and keep us up-to-date with your state of health.

Client Health Questionnaires are stored as paper copies in a locked filing cabinet. Only James and Angela Rake have access to the lockable filing cabinet and to the electronically stored copies.

On these forms we ask your permission to talk or email your physiotherapist, osteopath, consultant, doctor, or other health professional if we think this would benefit your treatment. You would be entitled to see this correspondence if requested.

Where a third party eg a solicitor or an insurance company request a copy of your records you must give written consent for Zing Wellness to release the records.

Where the police require access to your records they will advise Zing Wellness if your written consent has to be obtained. They will provide alternative legal authority to release your records if it’s not appropriate for Zing Wellness to contact you.

Your relatives have no right to see your records without your written consent unless the relative holds a Power of Attorney or other legal authority for you.

How we use your contact information

When booking you agree to your email and phone number being used by Zing Wellness to inform you of urgent changes to your booking.  We may, from time to time, use your phone number to contact you. We will only do this if you have booked a session or class and we need to contact you urgently or if you have added yourself to a Pilates class waiting list. If you do not wish us to contact you in this way, please inform us in person or by emailing hello@zingwellness.co.uk.

Your personal data used for communication purposes may also be stored electronically on a laptop or phone.

You may, of course, decline to submit your email and phone number to Zing Wellness, which in some cases may mean that we are not able to provide certain services to you.

If you do not wish to submit your email, and therefore are unable to book online, you can book your session or class by contacting us on 07865 645708 (James Rake) or 07747 778575 (Angela Rake).
