Owner and data controller
Dr. Charlotte Ord, 07736 071931, The Old Steppe House, Brighton Rd, Godalming GU7 1NS, email@example.com
I believe it is important to protect your Personal Data, as defined in the Data Protection Act 1998 and the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and I am committed to giving you a personalised service that meets your needs in a way that also protects your privacy. This policy explains how I may collect Personal Data about you. It also explains some of the security measures I take in order to protect your Personal Data, and tells you certain things I will and will not do.
When I first obtain Personal Data from you, or when you take a new service, I will give you the opportunity to tell me if you do or do not want to receive information from me about other services. You can normally do this by ticking a box on an application form or contract. You may change your mind at any time.
Some of the Personal Data I hold about you may be ‘sensitive personal data’ within the meaning of the Data Protection Act 1998 and the GDPR, for example, information about your health.
If you are not happy with any aspect of how I collect and use your data, you have the right to inform the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues (www.ico.org.uk). I would be grateful if you would contact me first if you do have a concern so that I can try to resolve it for you.
The legal bases relied on for processing:
I may process Personal Data relating to Users if one of the following applies:
Users have given their consent for one or more specific purposes;
provision of Data is necessary for the performance of an agreement with the User and any pre-contractual obligations;
processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the Owner is subject;
processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the Owner or by a third party;
Upon request, the Owner will help to clarify the specific legal basis that applies to the processing if there is any concern.

How I protect your personal data
I know how much Data security matters to you. I will treat your Data with the utmost care and have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your Personal Data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed.
Please remember, however, that communications over the internet, such as emails and webmails (messages sent through a website), are not secure unless they have been encrypted. Your communications may go through a number of countries before they are delivered – this is the nature of the internet. I cannot accept responsibility for any unauthorised access or loss of Personal Data that is beyond my control.
All User data is processed in line with the guidelines set out by the Data Protection Act 2018. This means that:
I have registered my practice with the Information Commissioner’s Office.
I take measures to ensure your data remains secure and that no one can access it without your specific consent. In the unlikely event of a data breach, I will contact you and inform the Information Commissioner’s Office within 48 hours.
Website interaction with Users is secured using ‘https’ technology.
How long will my personal data be kept?
I will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes I collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
On completion of our work together, I will hold your records for 7 years in line with professional practice guidelines. After this your data and all electronic communications will be destroyed/erased.
Once the retention period expires, Personal Data shall be deleted.
Who is my personal data shared with?
I do not share your personal data with other parties unless this is considered to be necessary and/or helpful (for example, your General Practitioner/GP), and, should we decide to work together, I will discuss this with you during your first appointment.
I maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of personally identifiable User information. These security procedures mean that I may occasionally request proof of identity before I disclose personal information to you.
