Privacy Policy


Peak Physique Hot Yoga values and respects the privacy of the people we deal with. Peak Physique Hot Yoga is committed to protecting your privacy and complying with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act) and other applicable privacy laws and regulations.


This Privacy Policy (Policy) describes how we collect, hold, use and disclose your personal information, and how we maintain the quality and security of your personal information.


What is personal information?


“Personal information” means any information or opinion, whether true or not, and whether recorded in a material form or not, about an identified individual or an individual who is reasonably identifiable. In general terms, this includes information or an opinion that personally identifies you either directly (e.g. your name) or indirectly.


What personal information do we collect?


The personal information we collect about you depends on the nature of your dealings with us or what you

choose to share with us.


The personal information we collect about you may include:

  • name;
  • mailing or street address;
  • date of birth;
  • email address;
  • phone number;
  • gender; and
  • emergency contact information.


Under certain circumstances, Peak Physique Hot Yoga may need to collect sensitive information about you. This might include any information about your health and wellbeing, incluing information about injuries, illnesses, surgery, pre-existing medical conditions, prescription medication, pregnancy and breastfeeding.


If we collect your sensitive information, we will do so only with your consent, if it is necessary to prevent a serious and imminent threat to life or health, or as otherwise required or authorised by law, and we take appropriate measures to protect the security of this information.


You do not have to provide us with your personal information. Where possible, we will give you the option to interact with us anonymously or by using a pseudonym. However, if you choose to deal with us in this way or choose not to provide us with your personal information, we may not be able to provide you with our services or otherwise interact with you.

Collecting personal information via third parties


We may collect your personal information via third parties, for example providers of studio booking software that we use to manage sales and class attendance. Information about these providers will be given upon request if you wish to review their privacy policies.


How do we use your personal information?


We use personal information for many purposes in connection with our functions and activities, including the following purposes:

  • provide you with information or services that you request from us;
  • deliver to you a more personalised experience and service offering;
  • improve the quality of the services we offer;

  • you have given us your consent to disclose personal information to that third party; or
  • we reasonably believe that:
    • the overseas recipient is subject to a law or binding scheme that is, overall, substantially similar to the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs); and
    • the law or binding scheme can be enforced; or
  • the disclosure is required or authorised by an Australian law or court / tribunal order.


How do we protect your personal information?


Peak Physique Hot Yoga will take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information that we hold about you is kept confidential and secure, including by:

  • having a robust physical security of our premises and physical databases / records;
  • taking measures to restrict access to only personnel who need that personal information to effectively provide services to you;
