I am strongly committed to protecting your privacy and undertake to observe a strict duty of confidentiality about your details, not only while you are a client, but at all times in the future. I recognise that confidentiality is a sensitive issue.
I may make brief notes after each session, these will be kept in accordance with the Data Protection Act (1998). They are purely to support the service you are receiving. I have password protection on all devices that use electronic data, such as computer/phone/tablet. No one has access to passwords on devices but me. If we converse via any of those methods in the way of email or text, you can be assured of confidentiality. I will only keep said correspondence for as long as necessary, after such times, the data will be deleted.
I will not at any time or in any manner, either directly or indirectly, divulge, disclose, or communicate in any manner any information that is proprietary to the client, or otherwise divulge any portion of the confidential information to any third party without the prior written consent of the client. I will protect such information and will not release it unless I believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to (1) comply with applicable criminal law, (2) enforce or apply the terms of our user agreement.
Myself and my website comply to the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation, May 2018) regulations and will be updated accordingly after the completion of Brexit.
