How the law protects you

Data protection laws state that I am only able to process personal data if I have valid reasons to do so.

How do I collect personal data from you? 

I receive information about you from you when you decide you’d like to work with me (or if you contact me to potentially work together).

The personal data that I may collect from you includes some of the following (depending on what services you are using): your name, email address, telephone numbers, home address, birth plans, partner details, family situation, mental health history, any physical issues (that might for example affect your birth and postnatal experience), and any other RELEVANT information which might impact your fertility, birth or postnatal experience.

If I am working with you as an EFT Therapist or Birth Trauma Recovery – I will send you an agreement to complete and will be held separately.

I may also contact you to collect testimonials, feedback, birth/feeding/parenting stories/photos to share and educate the wider community (with your EXPRESSED CONSENT TO SHARE).  These will not be shared without your consent.

How do I use your data?

I use information about you to support you during your experience.

Retention periods

I will keep your personal data for the duration of the period you are a customer or client. I shall retain your data only for as long as necessary in accordance with applicable laws.

If we have worked together on a one-to-one basis, I will need to keep your records for up to 7 years after our work together. I may not be able to delete your data before this time due to legal and/or accountancy obligations with my insurance company. I may also keep it for research or statistical purposes. I assure you that your personal data shall only be used for these purposes stated herein.

Who has access to your personal data?

I do not and never shall sell your personal data to third parties for marketing or advertising purposes.

Your rights

You have the right to object to my use of your personal data, or ask me to delete, remove or stop using it if there is no need for me to keep it. This is known as your right to be forgotten. There are legal and accountancy reasons why I will need to keep your data, but please do inform me if you think I am retaining or using your personal data incorrectly.

My Privacy Notice shall be made clear to you at the point of collection of your personal data.
