Please Note:

Whilst the pool works are ongoing, the back car park will occasionally be unavailable. In this circumstance the hotel car park can be used instead.

Privacy matters but it can be confusing. This page explains our approach to privacy on Acorns Health & Leisure Club website and how it affects you.

Short version

We collect anonymous statistics about your visit using cookies, like which of our pages you viewed. We also track if you have accepted that we use cookies.

If you sign up with us we take great care to keep your information safe and we’ll never share it with others without your express permission.

We never share your data with 3rd parties except to help us deliver our own services.

These are just the key points. If you need detail, keep reading.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that is downloaded onto ‘terminal equipment’ (eg a computer or smartphone) when the user accesses a website. It allows the website to recognise that user’s device and store some information about the user’s preferences or past actions.

Measuring our visitors

We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.

The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.

You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish.

Facebook, Twitter and other social networks

These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like” and “Tweet” buttons.

To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example Facebook use this to say “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.

Social networks therefore could know that you’re viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is inoffensive, we imagine this is not a concern for most users.

If you sign up for a service

When you sign up for any of our services – paid or otherwise – we will record specific personal information about you, such as your name and email address.

We will also collect and store information about your use of our services so as to improve them. For example, we keep a log of what features are being used at any time.

We also log account and transaction history for accounting purposes, and to monitor our business activities.

Emails

We may send you email notifications regarding your service (such as booking confirmations) or which may be of general information to you (such as newsletters).

We will never provide your personal information or email address to any third parties except where they are specifically employed to help deliver our own services, as detailed above.

Online payment

We use payment providers to bill for our products online. These companies will have access to your personal and payment information. When paying by credit card, Acorns Health & Leisure Club themselves do not ever have any access to your credit card details.

We share information with these companies only to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing payments you make via our website.

Security

Acorns Health & Leisure Club take many precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. These precautions include:

Use of SSL encryption for sensitive data

Hardware stored in secured datacentres behind firewalls

All access to information restricted by password and/or secure key

Restrictions to what information can be accessed via any location

Whilst we take great care to ensure any confidential information remains protected we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the Internet.

Of course you are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential.

Updates to this policy

We may update this privacy policy from time-to-time, particularly as technology changes. You can always check this page for the latest version. We may also notify you of changes to our privacy policy by email.

Any questions?

If you have any questions about this privacy policy or your personal data, please write to us by email to  gatwickinfo@acornsgym.com or by post to Acorns Health & Leisure, Copthorne Road, Copthorne, Crawley, RH10 3SQ
