My Personal Data Philosophy

I follow industry agreed best practice data collection, processing and storage for any data I collect from you and I only collect it if it is necessary to provide you with one of my services or if I think it will help improve my service to you.

Other than the disclosures referred to in this policy, I will not disclose any personal information without your permission unless I am legally entitled or obliged to do so (for example, if required to do so by court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime). 


My policy is not to share data unless necessary to manage your bookings with me.  I never have, and never will, sell your data.

What I use your personal information for and the legal grounds for doing do

Where it is needed to provide you with my products or services, such as:

  • Administer and manage the product or service you have with me

  • To process new bookings you make and the management of your client account

  • All stages and activities relevant to managing the product or service you have with me 

  • To monitor and keep records of interactions with you and staff

  • To improve the quality of the service provision to you  

Where it is in our legitimate interests to do so, such as:

  • For management and auditing of business operations

  • For market research and analysis

  • To develop new products and services and review/improve current products and services

To comply with our legal obligations

  • To understand any injuries, illnesses or medical conditions you may have to ensure your health and safety in the use of our services and products

Although I do not make it compulsory to give every item of information I ask for and will always make it clear what information is and is not optional, the more information you volunteer (and the more accurate it is), the better I can tailor your experience.


What to do if your personal information changes

I aim to keep our information about you as accurate as possible. If you would like to review or change the details you have supplied, you may do so at any time, simply by contacting me.


How long I retain your personal information for

I will ask for an update on your personal information every 6-12months.  I  will retain your information for as long as I have reasonable business needs and in line with legal and regulatory requirements or guidance. My insurance requires me to hold medical information for 7 years.
