If you become a client...

In order to give professional reflexology, shiatsu, Indian head massage treatments, I need to ask for and retain potentially sensitive information about your health. I will use this information only for informing the treatments and any subsequent advice. At the initial consultation I will give you a copy of this notice and ask you to sign that you have received it.

 

Lawful basis for holding and using client information

As a full member of the Association of Reflexologists (www.aor.org.uk), I abide by the AoR Code of Practice and Ethics. The lawful basis under which I hold and use your information is my legitimate interests i.e. my requirement to retain the information in order to provide you with the best possible treatment options and advice.

 

What information I hold and what I do with it

As required, I have registered with the Information Commissioner's Office.

Because I hold special category data (i.e. health-related information), the Additional Condition under which I hold and use this information is for me to fulfil my role as a healthcare practitioner bound under the AoR Confidentiality as defined in the AoR Code of Practice and Ethics.

How long will I retain this information for:

 

"Claims occurring” insurance: records to be kept for 7 years after last treatment

Children: records to be kept until the child is 25 or if 17 when treated, then 26

 

What I do with the information: 

I use the contact details you give me in relation to contacting you about: 

    appointments                 

    reflexology information or information related to your health    

    Special offers/promotions if you have subscribed (you may unsubscribe at any time)

 

I will NOT share your information with anyone else (other than as required for legal process) without explaining why it is necessary, and getting your explicit consent.

 

Your data will NOT be transferred outside the EU without your consent.  

 

Protecting your personal data

I am committed to ensuring that your personal data is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, I have put in place appropriate technical, physical and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information I collect from you.

 

YOUR RIGHTS

Rights in relation to automated decision-making and profiling.

THERAPIST’S RIGHTS

As described above, I have to keep your records of treatment for a certain period, which may mean that even if you ask me to erase any details about you, I might have to keep these details until after that period has passed unless you forfeit your right to “Claims Occurring Insurance”.

 

I may move my records between my computers and IT systems, ensuring your details are protected from being seen by others without your permission.
