Privacy Notice

 

Under the European 2018 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) you, as a client, have specific rights. To communicate these rights to you in a clear and concise manner, I am providing you with this Privacy Notice.

Any information that you share with me and by which you could be identified, will only be used in accordance with this Privacy Notice. I may change this Privacy Notice from time to time, by updating this page in line with the legislation. This Privacy Notice is effective from 25 May 2018.

By continuing to use my website clarewhittcounselling.com or making initial contact with me by phone or email, you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this policy and agreeing to my use of cookies described below.

Personal Data

Any personal data you share with me, including your name and contact details, will be held securely. I use this information to provide a counselling service and to run and maintain my business. I will not share this information with any other person, save where you indicate that you or someone else is at risk of significant harm, in which case I reserve the right to contact a GP or other appropriate support services if I deem it appropriate. I provide detailed information about this at a first counselling appointment or on request.

Cookies

My website uses WordPress.org which uses cookies to help identify and track visitors and their website access preferences. Visitors to clarewhittcounselling.com who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers, should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the website.

External links

Although my website aims to include only quality, safe and relevant external links, I cannot guarantee or verify the content of any externally linked websites and you will be using such links at your own risk. I cannot therefore be held responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide when visiting such sites and these sites are not governed by this Privacy Notice.

 

Retaining your personal data

I will retain personal data for the duration of my work with you and for a period of 7 years after our work has ended. If you make initial contact with me but do not go on to attend counselling sessions, I will delete your information after one month.

Your rights

You have the right to access the personal data that I hold about you at any time, to be kept informed of the way your personal data is processed and to have your personal data corrected or erased. You have the right to withdraw your consent to any aspect of the use of your personal data set out in this Privacy Notice at any time.

Please let me know in writing, if you want to access or have your personal data corrected or erased and I will respond to your request within thirty days.
