Privacy Policy


I operate as a sole trader with no employees and I am therefore the data controller for information that you provide. My contact details are:
Cath Lee, 64 Cherry Tree Ave, Belper, Derbyshire, DE56.1FR. E-mail cath.lee@peakwalking.com. Phone 07870 778585

DATA THAT I HOLD ABOUT YOU

When you make an enquiry or book a guided walk with me, I ask you to provide your name, address, email address and phone number. This is so that I can communicate effectively with you about your enquiry or booking. This information is held electronically in my Jimdo website storage facility indefinitely, unless you as me to remove it.

On the day of your guided walk, or sometimes in advance, I ask you to complete a registration and medical form. This is in paper format. The information I request includes confirmation of your name and address, where you are staying (if relevant), an emergency contact name and phone number, and details of any injuries or medical conditions that you have. The information on this form is requested so that if necessary, I can make provision for any existing medical conditions that you may have. It is also essential information that would be needed in case of an accident or emergency involving you, during the walk. I carry this form with me during the day of the walk. You can choose whether you wish me to return it to you after the walk, or whether you wish me to retain it for use on future walks in the same calendar year. If you have authorised me to hold the form containing your data and you do participate in further walks, you have the opportunity to update the information on the form. You can also request that I destroy the form or return it to you at any time. At the end of each calendar year, any forms that I have been holding are destroyed. On the rare occasions that another walk leader leads a walk for me, I provide your completed registration and medical form to them to carry during the walk.

If you already receive my occasional e-newsletters, or if you sign up for my e-newsletters, the following information will be stored in my MailChimp on-line account: Name, e-mail address, whether you are interested in trek training and challenge walks or day ways and multi-day walks. Also whether you prefer to received emails from my in plain text or html format. You are able to update this information or unsubscribe from my list at any time.

YOUR RIGHTS

If at any point you believe the information I hold on you is incorrect, you can request to see this information and have it corrected or deleted. If you wish to raise a complaint on how I have handled your personal data, you can contact me to have the matter investigated. If you are not satisfied with my response or believe I am processing your personal data not in accordance with the law, you can complain to the Information Commissioner's Office https://ico.org.uk/
