Statement of Intent
This policy sets out how AbsoluteU Clinical Hypnotherapy uses and protects the information you provide when using my services and accessing this website. I intend to ensure any data you provide is kept secure, managed respectfully and only used for the purposes for which it has been provided. This policy will be updated periodically in line with current legislation. When you contact me via my website, phone or email I will collect your: Name, Email Address, Telephone Number, and any information you choose to supply regarding the purpose of your enquiry.
How is this information used?
the right to erasure: given the nature of our work I am required to hold your details for a period of 7 years, after this your information will be securely destroyed. the right to restrict processing: I will only use the information for the purposes that I have stated above. I uphold the common law principles of confidentiality where the duty to keep confidence is measured against the concept of ‘greater good’. If in my opinion as a therapist there is good reason to believe not to disclose would cause danger or serious harm to self, the therapist or others then your GP or other appropriate agencies may be contacted. Only information required to ensure safety of relevant parties would be disclosed. Information may have to be disclosed without consent for the prevention, detection or prosecution of a crime. The sharing of anonymous case histories with supervisors and peer support groups is not a breach of professional confidentiality. the right to data portability: this right is more relevant to IT companies e.g. the sharing of information when moving from one utility provider to another. I will not share your information without your specific consent, other than in the situations described above. the right to object: I will not contact you for marketing purposes unless you have given me specific consent to do so. the right not to be subject to automated decision-making including profiling: I will not use your information for profiling purposes.
