At Rooke Tai Chi & Gigong, I take data protection seriously and I handle all personal information in line with the Data Protection Act 2018 and EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Here I am providing you with information on how I use the different types of information that you provide and I will request your permission to do that in each case at your initial consultation and at subsequent annual reviews:
I ask for your phone number and email address so that I can let you know if a class is cancelled and to send you other updates, including my quarterly e-news.
I ask for an emergency contact name and number just in case you feel unwell during a class and need help getting home or accessing health services.
I will not share your contact or personal details with third parties. The lawful basis for retaining data on your contact details is to keep you updated on classes and to have emergency contact details. I am required by my insurer to retain client records for 10 years. I review personal data annually with each current client. All details are kept securely, either under lock and key or as protected electronic files.
You have a right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office if you think there is a problem in the way I am handling data.
