WHO WE ARE:
WHAT DOES THIS NOTICE COVER?
This Privacy Information explains how I use your personal data: how it is collected, how it is held, and how it is processed. It also explains your rights under the law relating to your personal data.
WHAT IS PERSONAL DATA?
Personal data is defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU Regulation 2016/679) (the ‘GDPR’) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’.
Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.
WHAT ARE YOUR RIGHTS?
Under the GDPR, you have the following rights, which I will work to uphold:
The right to be informed about our collection and use of your personal data. This Privacy Notice should tell you everything you need to know, but you can always contact me to find out more or to ask any questions.
The right to access the personal data I hold about you.
The right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by me is inaccurate or incomplete. Please contact me to find out more.
The right to be forgotten, i.e. the right to ask me to delete or otherwise dispose of any of your personal data that I have. Please contact me to find out more.
The right to restrict (i.e. prevent) the processing of your personal data.
The right to object to me using your personal data for a particular purpose or purposes.
Rights relating to automated decision-making and profiling. I do not use your personal data in this way.
For more information about my use of your personal data or exercising your rights as outlined above, please contact me at email@example.com
Further information about your rights can also be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office or your local Citizens Advice Bureau.
If you have any cause for complaint about my use of your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office.
WHAT PERSONAL DATA DO I COLLECT?
Initial contact details e.g.phone number and / or email address will be recorded and securely stored.
Upon commencement of treatment, some or all of the following personal data will be recorded and securely stored:
Name, date of birth, address, email address, telephone number, profession, brief medical history
HOW DO I USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
Under the GDPR, I must always have a lawful basis for using personal data.
Supplying my services to you. Your personal details are required in order for me to personalise and tailor my services for you.
Communicating with you. This may include responding to emails or calls from you.
Supplying you with information by email that is part of the course of therapy.
I do not collect email addresses for marketing lists
You will not be sent any unlawful marketing or spam. I will always work to fully protect your rights and comply with my obligations under the GDPR and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, and you will always have the opportunity to optout.
HOW LONG DO I KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
I will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary in light of the reason(s) for which it was first collected. Your personal data will therefore be kept for a fixed period of 7 years following the completion of therapy with me.
Any audio recording of therapy sessions will be kept for 3 years and in the case of clients under the age of 18 years, the data will be kept for 7 years.
HOW AND WHERE DO I STORE YOUR DATA
I will only store or transfer your personal data in the UK. This means that it will be fully protected under the GDPR.
DO I SHARE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
I will not share any of your personal data with any third parties for any purposes except under the following limited circumstances.
I may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if you are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.
If any of your personal data is required by a third party, as described above, I will take steps to ensure that your personal data is handled safely, securely and in accordance with your rights, our obligations, and the third party’s obligations under the law.
HOW CAN YOU ACCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
If you want to know what personal data I have about you, you can ask me for details of that data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a ‘subject access request’.
All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
I will respond to your subject access request within 7 working days and, in any case, not more than 14 days of receiving it. Normally, I aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within that time. In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required. You will be kept fully informed of progress.
