Data Protection is governed by a set of rules called the General Data Protection Regulations which came into force on the 25th May 2018. These replace the Data Protection Act of 1998 and apply to all citizens of the EU. Under these regulations all individuals in the EU have rights regarding the way that businesses collect and use your data. You can find out more from the Information Commissioner’s Office here.
Where necessary for me to optimise your therapy, I may need to collect sensitive data about you. Sensitive data refers to data that includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, criminal convictions and offences, information about your health and genetic and biometric data.
These data are treated confidentially and with respect. As a client the security of your data is really important to me. I use best practices to ensure that data is stored safely and where I do need to share data with other people I make sure I share only what is absolutely necessary.
You may request details of personal information which I hold about you under GDPR. See https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/
