Why do we have a privacy statement?
If you have a Basic-Fit membership, want to get a Basic-Fit membership, visit our website, use our app or respond to our social media messages, we need certain personal information from you. We want to be transparent about the processing of your personal data by Basic-Fit and that is why we have produced this privacy statement. Basic-Fit handles your personal data with the utmost care and complies with the laws and regulations relating to the protection of personal data, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Below we have listed which of your data we process, why we do it, and how we handle your personal data. In addition, it explains how you can change the processing of your personal data by Basic-Fit. Because we are a dynamic company in a rapidly developing environment, it is important that we update our privacy statement from time to time. We therefore reserve the right to change this privacy statement at any time. You can always find the most current statement on our website. We therefore advise you to visit this page regularly.
Which personal data are processed by us?
Basic-Fit processes personal data. According to the GDPR, personal data is "any information about an identified or identifiable natural person". These are any data that can be traced directly or indirectly to you as an individual. We receive the data directly from you, when you join Basic-Fit, you visit the website or when you contact via social media.
Data from our members
When becoming a member of Basic-Fit, we will as a minimum process your name, address, place of residence, telephone number and your email address, bank account number, gender and date of birth. If you already have a Basic-Fit membership, we will continue to process this type of personal data about you. When using Basic-Fit services, depending on which services are purchased, the following personal data are also processed: membership number, card number, language choice (country of the club), which club you have designated as a home club, channel through which you became a member, recorded club visits, last visit to a club, type of subscription, supplementary benefits, sports profile if survey was completed, information you may have given to our customer service, your financial status with Basic-Fit (purchased services and products and whether these have been paid), NPS score if you participated in a membership satisfaction survey.
Our app is meant to support our members in their fitness journey, to offer a self-service tool to manage your membership, make reservations and to inform our members about their gym, services and products. After activating an account, you can personalize the app as much as you want, depending on your own fitness goals. We can distinguish the following categories of personal data in our app:
1. Data to create and use an app account
If you are a Basic-Fit member, you can easily install and login the app by providing your membership credentials. The following data will be uploaded on your app (data you normally see within ‘My Basic-Fit’): Name, age, gender, country, language, contact details, type of membership, membership and card number, home club, reservations and club visits. If you are not a Basic-Fit member, you have to create an account by providing the following data: name, age, gender, country, language and email address.
2. Data to achieve your sports goals and personalize your app
Our app can help you to achieve your sport goals. Therefore you need to add some information like your length, weight, objectives, goals, sport preferences and planned and concluded workouts. Your BMI will be automatically calculated. You can also use the ‘smart scale’ in the club and the results will be visible in your app.
3. Connect with your Apple health app
You can connect your health app to our Basic Fit app to optimize your sports goals. The data from your health app will only be visible on the app on your own device. Basic-Fit will not view, collect or store this data on its own systems.
4. Other optional extra’s
Profile picture, personal coaching dashboard, virtual lessons, recommended products/sport nutrition, recommended dietary tips and recipes. We also offer the option ‘club finder’, where you can give permission to use your location data. Basic-Fit does not store this location data.
5. Invite friends
You can send friends an invitation to join you and become a Basic-Fit member. Therefore we will redirect you to our website from where we provide you a special link to send to your friends.
6. Analytical data
We analyze the use of the app for improving it’s functionality and security and for personalization and marketing purposes. We analyze by use of an unique identifier, only interpretable for Basic-Fit, and do not use any user or device data. Basic-Fit uses Google analytics and concluded a Data Processing Agreement with Google in this respect. Google uses device data like IMEI (not accessible for Basic-Fit) for identification purposes.
Basic-Fit never shares or sells any personal data from app users to third parties. The data from your app account will be deleted 2 months after cancelation of your membership. You can change your settings, personal information or marketing preferences in the privacy settings of the app. More information about your privacy rights can be found in the final part of this statement.
We have cameras in and around our clubs, but we use the images for limited purposes. We realize very well that camera protection also affects the privacy of our members and employees and therefore we monitor with the utmost care. For example, no camera protection takes place in changing rooms or sanitary facilities and, in principle, monitoring only takes place reactively. This means that images are viewed after an incident has been reported. For information about the nature and execution or our camera protection, we refer to our Regulation Camera Protection on our website.
Basic Fit included in its General Terms and Conditions that it is not permitted to grant another person illegal access to the club by letting him or her walk through the turnstile. A fine (the value of a day pass) will be charged for this, or when repeatedly, the membership can be terminated. Specially equipped cameras are placed at the turnstiles that can recognize access fraud. In case the camera detects fraud, the images are always verified by an authorized employee to determine whether access fraud has occurred. The violation will be recorded and connected to the registered owner of the specific card number. This person receives an email from us with the request to pay the fine at the kiosk. You always have the right to request for access to the relevant photo moment, but you are responsible yourself for informing the other person visible on the photo or asking its permission. Upon request, the photo can also be sent anonymously (blurred faces). After payment of the fine, or termination of the membership, the photo will be deleted after 28 days. You can request the photo via the following email address: For the Netherlands: email@example.com For Luxembourg and Belgium: firstname.lastname@example.org For France: email@example.com For Spain: all email addresses above can be used.
Due to the limitation of the number of visitors in the club, you currently have to make a reservation before you can enter the club. In the reservation we remind you that you are not allowed to come and exercise with Covid-related symptoms. You can only complete the reservation after confirmation that you have been informed and have taken this restrictions into account. The reservation is only stored for a short period and is only intended to keep the number of visitors within limits. It is possible that health authorities approach Basic-Fit for the purpose of Covid-19 source and contact tracing. We may be required by Covid guidelines to provide the names and email addresses of members who were present at the club at the same time a positive tested person was present. In that case, the health authority will contact you by e-mail and advice you what to do. Sometimes the health authority requests us to email our members ourselves. Fortunately, it rarely happens and of course we handle this with the utmost care. We never register positively tested members.
App users can use an online coach of their choice who guides you for 12 weeks in achieving your sports goals. This functionality is not yet in operation in all countries. A chat function is available for the coaching. These chats are only intended for the online coaching period and will not be used for other purposes. The chat messages will be deleted 2 months after termination of the coaching period. Only when complaints arise about the coaching period chats can be kept a little longer, namely up to 2 months after the complaint has been handled.
