We take seriously our obligations to protect your privacy. The General Data Protection Regulation, incorporated in the UK by The Data Protection Act 2018 (the Act), requires us to provide you with important information on how we collect and use your personal data.

We can only process your data if there is a legal basis for doing so. We rely on three legal bases for processing your data. These are: your consent, which you can withdraw at any time; our legitimate business interests; and the proper management of a contract to which you are a party.
We must also specify the purposes for processing your data. The purpose of processing your data is because you have asked for something to be done so that you can enter into a contract, or is in relation to a contract which you or your client have entered into.
We need to inform you of other parties who we may share your data with.

[We may need to share your data externally with Case Managers, Solicitors, GP’s, Physiotherapists, Consultants, Technology Providers and any other Healthcare Professionals in order to keep them updated of your treatment with us. Additionally, we use the contractors/individuals/external cloud-based systems listed below to process your data.

Importantly, you have a number of rights with regard to the data that we hold about you. For example, you can request access to your data, and can require that we rectify or erase it. Your requests will be properly considered. However, this does not automatically mean that we will agree to your request, as we may have other obligations that outweigh your rights. For example, we may be required to legally defend our activities.
