The purpose of this policy is to inform you of what information I collect and how I store your personal data in accordance with the new General Data Protection Regulations coming into force May 2018.
1. What information is being collected?
I will collect personal information which will include your name, address, phone number(s) and email address. In some circumstances I may also ask for medical information if it is required to help me provide a service to you. I may ask for the use of photographic images on my website and social media.
Information may be requested via a booking form (both physical forms and digital versions are in use) which can be hand delivered, sent via Royal Mail or attached in an email. When there is no booking form, data can also be transferred via an email.
I require your information to be able to communicate with you, to be able to fulfil my obligations when you book my services and as a legal obligation to keep accurate client information.
I keep all documents relating to services and any photographic images in a password protected folder on a private PIN protected laptop. Emails are stored on the same laptop. Any emails and any attachments that I send to you which contain personal information will be encrypted and/or password protected for your safety.
I am required by law to keep client information for a minimum of 7 years from the last visit/correspondence before destroying it for which I will seek out professional advice on how to do this safely.
I may ask to use photos and/or quotations with or without identifying details for my website and/or social media accounts. I will ask for your consent via a feedback form. You are completely within your rights if you do not want to opt-in.
I will not share your information with any third party without your consent or in the instance when withholding information could cause harm to you, me or someone else.
