Why do I collect personal data?
There is a normal set of documents that need to be stored when running a business; emails, notes, contracts, etc. , for me to work efficiently and ethically. All of your data will be deleted after 5 years.
What data do I store?
Emails and notes are encrypted, and password protected. If you decided to work with me then I would also store your client detail form and take brief session notes after each session, to help me follow and remember our work and your journey.
Where do I keep it?
Your data and session notes are stored on my work devices which are encrypted and have passwords to access the devices and documents.
Who do I share it with?
I will never share your data with anyone unless I believe you or another person’s life is in serious danger or I am legally required to by Scottish and English Law. I value your autonomy and our relationship, and I will always try to discuss the matter with you first.
Anonymised data is shared during my regular individual supervision.
How long do I keep it for?
I am required by my insurer to hold records for 5 years after our last contact. After this time all data will be deleted.
