Sensitive information is a sub-set of personal information that is given a higher level of protection under the Australian Privacy Principles. As a yoga studio, it is likely that you will be collecting sensitive information.
Some of the types of sensitive information that you may collect includes health information, such as injuries and ailments, their weight and other types of health information. You may also be collecting sensitive information that relates to religious or philosophical beliefs, as this may be addressed as a part of the yoga services you are providing. Your yoga studio may also subscribe to spiritual practices which may be reflected in the personal information you keep about clients.
You should set out when this information will be disclosed, for example, will any of this information be disclosed to third parties, or will it only be disclosed when required for by law?
