THE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND USE
Information from client organisations.
7Futures is contracted by client organisations to deliver wellbeing events and programmes. In the course of the engagement and planning process, 7Futures may be made aware of commercially sensitive information about the client organisation. This will be treated as highly confidential and will not be shared. Processing of this information is necessary for performance of the contract.
Client organisations may provide 7Futures with personal data of their employees. Where we are provided with personal data by the client organisation, it is the responsibility of the client organisation to ensure they have a legal basis for the provision of such information to 7Futures.
Such employee data may include employee name, gender, age, department, job title, email address, work phone number, mobile telephone number. This data is used for the sole purpose of providing our service to the client organisation and the legal basis for processing is the performance of a contract with our client.
On behalf of the client we may contact employees directly either by email, letter, text, telephone or via project websites and intranets. This communication may be to invite individuals directly to launch days, health events, workshops, body composition analysis, wellness checks (including but not limited to grip strength, blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol testing), one-to-one coaching, counselling sessions, health and safety events, internal events, team building and motivational events or other events we may organise in order to provide a service to the client. We may also provide post-event resources and additional information and issue feedback surveys. The legal basis for processing is the performance of a contract with our client.
Information from individuals.
We may receive personal data from individuals who register prior to attending events we run on behalf of client organisations. We use this data for the performance of a contract with our client i.e. delivering the health and well-being event.
We may receive personal data from attendees at our events. The personal data we receive may include the following: name, gender, age, department, job title, work email address, personal email address, work phone number and mobile phone number.
In addition at certain events we may process sensitive personal information such as weight, height blood pressure, body composition analysis, information on physical and mental health and fitness, medical conditions and injuries. We process this information in order to provide appropriate health and well-being services and advice to you.

We do not share your personal data with third parties and we take appropriate measures to safeguard sensitive data.
In certain cases we may provide anonymized results to client organisations in order that they may measure the effectiveness of their investment in health and well-being activities for employees. Any such report will anonymise your data with that collected from other individuals and data will not identify individuals. (You will be given prior notice of any such anonymized reporting and may refuse your consent.)
IF YOU FAIL TO PROVIDE PERSONAL INFORMATION
Where we need to collect personal data by law or under the terms of the contract we have with you, and you do not provide that data when requested we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you. In this case we may stop providing that service but will notify you if this is the case at the time.
The company takes the security of your data seriously and has internal policies and controls in place to ensure that your data is not accidentally destroyed misused or disclosed and is not accessed except by our employees in the proper performance of their duties. We limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal information on our instructions and are subject to a duty of confidentiality. We have a range of security measures concerning access to our premises and systems.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.
HOW LONG WILL DATA BE HELD?
We will only retain your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it is collected.
When deciding how long to keep data we assess the amount of data, nature and sensitivity, potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure, processing purposes and whether these may be achieved by other means and our legal requirements.
We hold data on client organisations for as long as we are providing the services to the client, or to comply with our legal obligations, enforce the terms of our contracts, resolve disputes or prevent abuse.
We hold data information on employees or other service users of the client for the duration of our contract with the client, and generally erase it within 18 months of the contract termination. We hold this data to enable you to compare any change in your health measures at a future event or consultation, or if you seek further health measures with another provider and wish to compare with any results we hold for you.
