General Data Protection Regulation 2018: How we meet our obligations to you
Your personal information and any notes relating to hypnotherapy provided to you are kept securely at all times.
Information we collect about you and how we use it
When you first contact us, basic personal information will be collected for (1) contact and identification purposes and (2) to allow an initial assessment of whether hypnotherapy is appropriate. During any subsequent therapy sessions, notes may be taken. These could include sensitive details about your personal life. Any such notes are solely for the purpose of providing you with relevant hypnotherapy.
The personal information gathered at the time of your initial contact with us will not be retained but will be promptly and securely deleted if we mutually agree that hypnotherapy is inappropriate for you. Similarly, if you do not keep your first appointment – and fail to arrange a new start date – we will assume that no hypnotherapy is required and your personal details will not be retained but will be promptly and securely deleted.
You have rights relating to the information gathered:
1. To request a copy of this information. Should you make such a request, the information will be given to you within 30 days of the request being received.
2. To supplement, delete (although this right is not absolute), update or correct it.
3. To request the transfer of your data to another individual or company.
Your information is kept for the time necessary to provide the hypnotherapy service requested plus five years (this period being a requirement of our insurers). Upon completion of hypnotherapy plus five years, all data will be securely deleted.
Upon starting your hypnotherapy, you will be asked to agree that we can hold your personal information and any notes relating to the hypnotherapy provided to you.>
