online safety and our privacy policy

ZOOM SESSIONS AND ONLINE SAFETY

1. Zoom Sessions

  • We have a Zoom session ID set up for the duration of the five-day course, accessible via your confirmation email. This session ID will be changed and the subscribed attendees notified if we have reason to believe the security of the session is under threat.

  • Each attendee must have signed up and paid via the vocalbootcamp.org booking form.

  • Attendees will only be allowed to join once the host is present

  • We will mute attendees on joining

  • The host will manage the room

  • The call will be recorded by VBC and available for paying subscribers for 14 days (details will be sent to those who sign up). We expect that no-one on the call will record it or take screenshots at any point. If this happens, we may not be able to offer this service for future events. 

  • We will not share screenshots of the meeting.

  • We ask you to not share the Zoom link publicly or with anyone else. Those wishing to join the call MUST pay the fee and sign up at vocalbootcamp.org

2. Considerations

The measures outlined above are intended to let us enjoy our Zoom calls together as safely as possible.  However, no internet platform is 100% secure and so we would remind you you to consider the following:

  • Whilst we encourage and promote breastfeeding, we would like to alert participants to the possibility of hacking and thus the room and your image may not be entirely secure.

  • If you do have children with you at the virtual meeting, we would like to alert you to the small possibility of “zoom-bombing” whereby hackers are able to flood meetings with images of pornography.

  • VBC is taking the steps outlined above in order to mitigate the possibility of uninvited guests. Whilst we ask you to be aware of the risks associated with video calls as outlined above, we have implemented safety measures and will remain vigilant throughout the call.

  • In the event that a meeting is hijacked or the host has any concerns about online safety, VBC will terminate the meeting and advise about a postponed session.

The Privacy Notice for Vocal Boot Camp ('VBC') is set out below and tells you how we use and protect the personal data that you provide to us or that we collect about you, including when you use our website, attend our Zoom calls, pay an online fee or when you ask us for information. It also tells you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you, but nothing in this privacy notice limits your statutory rights in relation to your personal data.

1. Who will hold your information?

Vocal Boot Camp, operating under the registered company, Dancing Kite, Registration Number 13113456, is the owner and operator of this website and this privacy notice is issued on behalf of VBC.

Wix Payments and PCI Compliance

The security of our users' financial transactions is extremely important to us. For this reason, Wix Payments complies with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).

The PCI DSS is the highest information security standard for organisations or companies that accept credit card payments. This standard provides protection of the privacy and confidentiality of the card's data used to complete the online transaction. 

PCI Compliance helps to create a secure environment by improving the quality of the cardholder data in order to reduce the rate of credit card fraud cases. In addition, it ensures that the data for each payment is stored securely in a tamper-proof manner.

4. How we use your personal data

We will only use your personal data when absolutely necessary and the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:

• Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.

• Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.

We do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data. However, you have the right to restrict or object to our processing your personal data as set out in section 9 of this privacy notice.

6. Data retention periods

6.1 We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

6.2 To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, as well as the applicable legal requirements.

6.3 In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see ‘Your Rights’ below for further information.

7. Sharing information

7.1 We may share your personal data with the parties set out below for the purposes described above (‘Purposes for which we hold and use your information’).

7.2 We may disclose information to a court, regulatory body or law enforcement agency if legally required to do so;

7.3 None of these third parties will be located outside of the UK or the European Union.

8. Keeping information up to date and secure

8.2 VBC is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We store the personal information you provide on private computer systems with limited access.

8.3 However, all information transmitted over the internet and all publicly accessible websites are susceptible to malicious practices, and we accept no liability if security is breached.

9. Your rights

9.1 You have certain rights under data protection legislation in relation to the information that we hold about you. These rights include the rights set out below.

9.1.1 You are entitled to request access to your personal data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

9.1.2 You are entitled to request that VBC stop using information about you for the purpose of marketing.

9.1.3 You are entitled to require a correction of errors in the personal information held about you. We may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us, and if we disagree that information is inaccurate you are entitled to apply to ask the court for an order that such erroneous information be rectified, blocked, destroyed or erased. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected.

9.1.4 You are entitled to request the erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

9.1.5 You are entitled to object to the processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms.

9.1.6 You are entitled to request a restriction of the processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data's accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

9.1.7 You are entitled to request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

9.2 You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

9.3 We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

9.4 We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case we will notify you and keep you updated.

10. Age 16 & under

We do not wish to collect any personal information from children without their parents' consent. If you are under 16, please obtain consent from your parents or guardian before supplying any information.

11. Changes to this privacy notice

If we change our privacy notice we will post the changes on this page and may place notices on other pages of the website, so that you may be aware of the information we collect and how we use it at all times.
