Privacy Notice for Brighton Naturally
Why we are collecting your data
Brighton Naturally is a data controller and collects your personal data in order to provide the service you have requested from us, ie homeopathic treatment. We will only collect the personal data from you we need in order to provide this service to you.
What is the legal basis for processing this data?
We do this as a task in order to provide homeopathic treatment to you at your request. We will not be able to provide the service requested without the personal data you provide us with.
Who will your information be shared with?
Your contact information is kept on a database that is only accessible by me, Rachel Gawne and any other staff representing Brighton Naturally. Your case notes are kept in hard copy only. They are securely stored in our treatment room.
We will not
(1) Use your information for marketing or sales purposes without your prior explicit consent.
(2) Send or store your data abroad.
(3) Make decisions about you based on automated processing.
How long will we hold your data for?
The Alliance of Registered Homeopaths of which I am a full member advises recommends patient records are kept for a minimum of seven years following the last occasion on which treatment was given. In the case of minors, the recommendation is seven years following their eighteenth birthday.
You are entitled to request a copy of any information about you that we hold. A request to access personal data, or to have data erased, must be made in writing and signed by the patient. Emailed requests, or requests made via text are not acceptable.
If the information we hold about you is inaccurate you have a right to have this corrected and you have the right to request completion of incomplete data.
You have the right to request that we stop, or restrict the processing of your personal data, in certain circumstances. Where possible we will seek to comply with your request, but we may be required to hold or process information to comply with a legal requirement.
You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data in certain circumstances. We may still be required to hold or process information if there are legitimate grounds for doing so.
