YOUR PRIVACY AND COVID-19
This Your Privacy and Covid-19 Notice was last updated on September 28, 2020.
As the current circumstances and the needs of our community evolve, this Privacy Notice may be modified or updated in BIOWAVES’s sole discretion. If we make any changes to our Privacy Notice, we will post the revised document here and such changes will be effective immediately upon that posting. Please review this Privacy Notice periodically to ensure you are aware of any changes.
What Information We’re Collecting: We may collect certain information about your potential exposure to COVID-19 and health through periodic health declarations or questionnaires we ask you to complete. We may also collect measurements of your body temperature and facial scan as part of our screening process when you arrive at a club. This information will not be associated with or linked to your name or membership information, and your facial scan will only be associated with the body temperature measurement, but may be temporarily stored on the screening device, as further described below. Lastly we may collect information provided by you, or a public health authority or other government agency, if you test positive for COVID-19, including information about how you interacted with BIOWAVES during the time in which you may have been infected with COVID-19. All of the foregoing is referred to in this Privacy Notice as “Screening Information”.
What We’re Doing with Screening Information: We collect and use Screening Information to help provide a safe environment for our employees and members, to determine any potential COVID-19 exposure, and to administer your membership and access to our clubs. We will use Screening Information in furtherance of those legitimate interests and business purposes. We will not use your Screening Information for any marketing or promotional purposes.
Your Options: At this time, BIOWAVES requires you to provide Screening Information as a condition of entry to its Clubs. However, if you are uncomfortable with providing any requested Screening Information or do not wish to consent to this Privacy Notice, we are happy to place your membership on a complimentary freeze during the period in which Screening Information is required. If you do not consent to the collection of your facial scan, when you arrive at the club you may request to instead have your body temperature measured by a handheld thermometer, and your body temperature will not be stored. Please contact BIOWAVES staff or your Studio’s General Manager if you have any questions regarding our screening procedures or would like to freeze your membership.
