This is to inform you what data I am collecting from you and what I intend to do with it.
What data do I keep and why do I need it?
Name, marital status, age, number of children, occupation – this is basic information that helps me get to know my clients. Address, email address, phone number – I use this as a way of contacting you regarding your sessions. Session notes are held in a secure filing cabinet.
How will I store your data?
Client details and session notes will be locked in a filing cabinet or held in Gmail, for the time required by my insurer (currently 7). After this time, any document with personal information and phone number will be deleted.
