This policy does not apply to the information gathering or processing practises of companies other than our business or to those individuals who we do not employ or manage.

Information we collect
We use a privacy by design approach to anonymizing data, once received, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018. Once collected information stored electronically is password protected and accessible only to named authorised personnel. Information stored as hard copy is kept in a locked space which is also accessible only to named authorised personnel.
None of the information we collect is shared with a third party without your explicit consent. Exceptions to this would be in cases of fraud or any other activity in breach of the law.

Student applications

Client records
These are kept in a locked cabinet accessible only to the therapist responsible for the said clients. These records have to be kept for 7 years by law after which they may be erased. Informed consent is obtained from each client for information to be shared with another party such as another health professional or for anonymized data to be used for research purposes, otherwise information collected is strictly confidential. Clients have the right to refuse to share this information at any time. They also have the right to request a copy of their notes if they so wish.

Credit card details
These are not stored electronically and are stored in such a way as to render them as non-personally identifiable information. They are then kept in a locked cabinet and are accessible only to named authorised personnel.
