General Data Protection Regulation
I am committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. For existing clients and people making enquiries I currently hold some of the following details: your name, age, email address, telephone number, and city location, and where applicable Skype/Facetime address and bank payment details.
1. These details are for running my business. To date they have been used for contacting you about individual appointments and bookings.
2. I will only use these details to contact you in the future if you give explicit permission to do so. For example: with information about groups, workshops or retreats that I am running, that may be relevant and of interest to you. I will not use your information for any purpose other than above.
I will not pass your information to any 3rd parties.
I will keep basic details for 6 years. Therapy/coaching session notes and supervision notes will only ever be recorded on paper and destroyed 3 months after the end of therapy/coaching. You have the right to ask to see the information I hold about you, please ask me and I will provide it to you. You can ask me to change any information that I hold about you that is incorrect.
You have the right to ask me to delete information that I hold about you, which I will do save for that which I have a legal obligation to keep – for example, for my business tax purposes, and psychotherapy licensing purposes.
If you wish to complain about how I handle your data, in the first instance please contact me, Kat Nechleba, who is the acting Data Controller of this website and service.
