Use of your image in marketing materials

We regularly take photos and short videos of course activities for use both as promotional material and in our eLearning system. Your student declaration (that you sign at the start of the course) gives your permission for these images and videos to be used in this manner, however we will not divulge any medical information without your express permission.

If you do not wish your image to be shared publicly you are given the opportunity to decline photographic participation during class. We are respectful of your wishes.

Your personal information

In order to provide all students with a safe online experience we use an electronic billing system called Stripe, which integrates with our client records system (WooCommerce). Stripe works within the WooCommerce interface and encodes your credit card and contact details to ensure their safe transfer and storage. In fact we cannot view your credit card details (we only get to see the last 4 digits of your credit card number). You can contact Stripe directly through their website at They are located in San Francisco, USA.

We respect your privacy and personal information, and will never share any of your information with anyone else without your permission. We may use your email address to send our fascinating, informative and inspirational email communications and other announcements, however, should you wish to be removed from our mailing list at any time, you can opt-out of email contact by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any email we send you.

Your medical information

Medical information you share privately with your instructor in the context of a course session is confidential and will only be shared with other Breathe Education instructors as relevant for your safety and wellbeing (for example we may put a pop-up note in your profile to let all the instructors working with you know that you have a lower back injury, or that you are pregnant). These notes are not visible to the general public or other students.

Often, in the course of your training you will be working with fellow students to perform client assessment and Pilates teaching. For your own safety in this situation it is important that you share any relevant medical information with your fellow students, and any disclosure you or your fellow student make to each other in relation to your health situation must remain confidential unless express permission is given to share the information with others.

Student instructors observing sessions

As part of your training you are required to undertake student placement, which may involve you sitting in on sessions with a qualified instructor. Student instructors are required to adhere to Breathe Education’s privacy policy (i.e. never to discuss client information with anyone except the instructor conducting your session, without obscuring the identity of the client).

Our obligation to share information with the regulator

We treat your privacy with respect, and will never share your information with a third party without your consent, aside from information we are required by law to share with the national regulator. We will comply with all legislative requirements including the Privacy Act 1988 and National Privacy Principles (2001).

We may also need to share information with external agencies to comply with the requirements as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).  All information shared is kept with the strictest confidence by both parties and is available on request.  If we are required by law to make your information available to others we will first seek your written permission.
