This information is held for a period of seven years from the date of the last treatment provided. This is a legal requirement and all reasonable steps are taken to ensure that this information is maintained in the strictest of confidence.  

 

Your Personal Data is not shared with any Third Party, Partner, Spouse, Child, Sibling, Parent or Organisation without your express permission unless such request is in a legal form from a solicitor, hospital, insurance company, court of law or the police.

What is Personal Data?

Personal data is information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.  Examples include an individual’s Name, Age, Address, Date Of Birth, Gender and Contact Details.

Personal data may contain information (which I do not record, maintain or use) which is known as special categories of personal data. This may be information relating, but not limited, to the following: an individual’s health, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, genetic and biometric data, or data relating to sexual orientation.

Personal data may also contain data relating to criminal convictions and offences (which I do not record, maintain or use).

For the purposes of processing financial transactions by credit/debit card or direct bank transfer or online banking, I do not retain details of your bank account outside that as displayed on the bank statement of the account into which you transfer funds.

Personal Data Collected at Healing Kokoro

In order for me to provide the services / treatments  offered on this website to you, I, in my capacity as the Service Provider, will collect and process Personal Data about you. 

In the event that another person discloses personal or other information about you to me, it is their responsibility to ensure that they are entitled to and have your permission to disclose such personal information about you to me. 

In the event that you disclose personal information about other persons, you have a responsibility to ensure that you are entitled to and have permission to disclose such personal information relating to that third party.

You may provide me with your Personal Data by completing the Booking Form and/or the Contact Form on the website, by joining the mailing list, by discussing your specific condition, requirements and details over the Telephone, Mobile Phone or by communicating such information by text, multimedia messaging, email, social media, messaging, letter, face to face communication, by completing the set of forms required before the session / treatment can take place (specifically for online hypnosis sessions which require the client's understanding and consent regarding the necessary conditions for an online session to be conducted, such as a stable Internet connection, etc.) or by other means depending on each client's specific preferences, needs or circumstances (e.g., filling in a form granting consent for segments of the session information to be shared with certain groups of people or with the general public, etc.)

I do not share your personal data with your spouse, partner, children or any third parties, or other organisations without your express permission.

Where I collect personal data directly from you, I am considered to be the controller of that data, i.e., I am the ‘Data Controller’.  

A ‘Data Controller’ means the individual or organisation which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.

A ‘Data Processor’ means the individual or organisation which processes personal data on behalf of the ‘Data Controller’.

 

If you object to me collecting or maintaining your Personal Data, I may be unable to provide you with the services / treatments that you require.

For the purposes of meeting the Data Protection Act 2018 territorial scope requirements, the United Kingdom is identified as the named territory where the processing of personal data takes place.

Your Rights

Individuals are provided with legal rights governing the use of their Personal Data. These grant individuals the right to understand what Personal Data relating to them is held, for what purpose, how it is collected and used, with whom it is shared if applicable, where it is located, to object to its processing, to have the data corrected if inaccurate, to take copies of the data and to place restrictions on its processing.  Individuals can also request the deletion of their personal data.

These rights are known as Individual Rights under the Data Protection Act 2018.  The following list details these rights:

Individuals can exercise their Individual Rights at any time.  As mandated by law, I will not charge a fee to process these requests, however if your request is considered to be repetitive, wholly unfounded and/or excessive, I am entitled to charge a reasonable administration fee.

In exercising your Individual Rights, you should understand that in some situations I may be unable to fully meet your request, for example if you make a request for me to delete all your Personal Data, I may be required to retain some data for regulatory and other statutory purposes.

You should understand that when exercising your rights, a substantial public or vital interest may take precedence over any request you make.  In addition, where these interests apply, I am required by law to grant access to this data for law enforcement, legal and/or health related matters.

 

Service Provider Rights

  • I may have to keep your records of treatment for a certain period as described above, which may mean that even if you ask me to erase any details about you, I might have to keep these details until after that period has expired.

  • I may move your records between my computers and IT systems, as long as your details are protected from being seen by others without your permission.
