Your legal rights under the GDPR
Under the new GDPR legislation to, you have the right to:
i. Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
ii. Request a correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you updated and corrected.
iii. Request your personal information to be erased. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove any personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law.
iv. Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
v. Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
vi. Request the transfer of your personal information to another party.
vii. Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
Disclosure of personal data:
Should you wish to exercise any of the above rights, please note:
· You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
· We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
· We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month.
We have a legal obligation to retain your records for 8 years after the last treatment session or in the case of a child, up until they are 25. If you would like your records deleted after this period, please put your request in writing to the data privacy manager. If we do not hear from you after the 8 year period or after the age of 25 in the case of a child, we will retain your records so as to be able to provide you with the best treatment should you need to revisit the clinic again in the future.
Breach of your personal data:
In the highly unlikely event of a data breach, you will be contacted and notified of the breach and it’s extent immediately. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) will also be notified and we will keep you updated as the investigation proceeds.
You have the right to make a complaint at any time to Bansel Osteopathy and Holistic Health or the ICO-the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues (www.ico.org.uk).
