How to contact us
WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU
I collect information about you when you book an appointment for a service or treatment, visit the salon for a service or treatment, buy a product or apply for a job, whether contact is online, on paper, by email or over the phone.
The information you give me may include your name, address, email address, phone numbers, relevant history which may suggest that a service or treatment should not go ahead, or certain products should not be used (e.g. allergies, pregnancy, skin conditions), payment and transaction information, and CVs.
For clients under the age of 16, I will only keep and use their personal information with the consent of a parent, carer or guardian.
HOW INFORMATION ABOUT YOU WILL BE USED
In law, I am allowed to use personal information, including sharing it outside the salon, only if I have a proper reason to do so, for example:
To fulfil a contract with you i.e. to provide the service or treatment you have requested and to communicate with you about your appointments
When it is in my legitimate interest i.e. there is a business or commercial reason to do so, unless this is outweighed by your rights or interests
When you consent to it: I will always ask for your consent to hold and use health and medical information.
Lawful Basis for collecting information:
Name and telephone numbers Performance of Contract
Address Legitimate Interest
Date Of Birth Performance of Contract- some treatments by law require a minimum age limit to be able to carry out the service, so we need to confirm age of customer
Medical History / Allergy information Performance of Contract - some conditions prohibit certain treatments, so we need to be aware of this information
Photographs of any services Legitimate interest - these images may be shared on my social media site (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest & Instagram) , or my web site I will always obtain consent before any images are taken or published
I have rigorous data protection and security policies in place with all our suppliers.
I will not share your information with any other third party without your consent except to help prevent fraud, or if required to do so by law.
I do not share your information with any third parties, all information held is purely for the sole use of me to carry out my contracts of service with you.
I may like to send you information about products and services which may be of interest to you from time to time. I will ask for your consent to receive marketing information.
If you have consented to receiving marketing, you may opt out at a later date.
You have the right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If you no longer wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, please contact or contact the salon.
HOW LONG YOUR INFORMATION WILL BE KEPT FOR
Unless you request otherwise, I will keep your information to contact you for a maximum of 2 years from your last visit to the salon.
After 2 years I will delete all your personal information, except for your name, relevant client history (e.g. allergy test records which we keep for 4 years) and financial transactions (which we are obliged to keep for 6 years).
Information about unsuccessful job applicants will be deleted after four months.
See my data retention policy for further information.
WHERE YOUR INFORMATION IS KEPT
Any and all paper records will be stored in a locked cabinet within a locked room and access will be recorded.
Sending information via the internet is not completely secure, although I will do my best to protect your information and prevent unauthorised access.
ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION AND CORRECTION
You have the right to request a copy of the personal information that I hold about you. This will normally be free, unless I consider the request to be unfounded or excessive, in which case I may charge a fee to cover my administration costs.
If you would like a copy of some or all of your personal information, please contact Maxine Knott by post or email
I want to make sure that your personal information is accurate and up-to-date. You may ask me to correct or remove information you think is inaccurate.
