I also if I collect, use and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose.

Sensitive data required for therapy may include information about your health, your medical background, your lifestyle, your relationship status, your family, your past & information about your sex life.

  • request marketing to be sent to you;
  • enter a competition, promotion or survey; or
  • provide me some feedback or contact us.
  • I may receive Contact, Financial and Transaction Data from providers of technical, payment and delivery services such as Paypal.

I strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising. My lawful ground for processing your personal data to send you marketing communications is either your consent or our legitimate interests (namely to grow our business).

Under the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations, I may send you marketing communications from me if (i) you made a purchase or asked for information from us about our goods or services or (ii) you agreed to receive marketing communications and in each case you have not opted out of receiving such communications since. Under these regulations, if you are a limited company, I may send you marketing emails without your consent. However, you can still opt out of receiving marketing emails from me at any time.

Promotional offers from me

I may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data to form a view on what I think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how I decide which products, services and offers may be relevant for you (marketing).

You will receive marketing communications from me if you have requested information from me or purchased goods or services from me and, in each case, you have not opted out of receiving that marketing.

Third-party marketing

I do not share your personal data with any third parties.

Opting out of marketing

You can ask me or third parties to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by following the opt-out links on any marketing message sent to you or by contacting me by e-mail at any time.

Where you opt out of receiving these marketing messages, this will not apply to personal data provided to me as a result of a product/service purchase, warranty registration, product/service experience, therapy or other transactions.

Change of purpose

I will only use your personal data for the purposes for which I collected it, unless I reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose.

Please note that I may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.

Disclosures of your personal data

I may have to share your personal data with the parties set out below for the purposes set out in the table in paragraph 4 above:

  • External Third Parties such as service providers, professional advisers, HMRC and regulators. Including but not limited to, IT services and software providers, accountants, auditors and professional Insurers.
  • Third parties to whom I may in the future choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of my business or my assets. Alternatively, I may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them. If a change happens to my business, then the new owners may use your personal data in the same way as set out in this privacy policy.
  • I require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law.  I  do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with my instructions.

International transfers

 I do not transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA).                                                                   

Data security

I have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, I limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

I have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.        

Data retention

How long will you use my personal data for?

I will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to my relationship with you.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, I consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

By law I have to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for six years after they cease being customers for tax purposes and in line with Insurance requirements I am required to retain your data for a minimum of eight years from the date the data was provided.

If you are not a customer I shall retain your data for 2 years following your last engagement with me.

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see ‘Request erasure’ below for further information.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case I may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

Your legal rights

Under certain circumstances, you have the following rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data:

  • Request access to your personal data.
  • Request correction of your personal data.
  • Request erasure of your personal data.
  • Object to processing of your personal data.
  • Request restriction of processing your personal data.
  • Request transfer of your personal data.
  • Right to withdraw consent.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact me by email.  

No fee usually required

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, I may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, I may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

Changes to this privacy policy

I may change this privacy policy from time to time – when I do I shall inform you.
