Whitestone Therapy asks all new clients to fill in a confidential ‘personal details form’ when starting therapy. This is held in line with GDPR regulations.
What is GDPR? (General Data Protection Regulation)
It is a data protection regulation intended to protect the personal data of all European citizens. It applies to all EU member states from 25 May 2018. A central requirement of this regulation is for businesses (of all sizes) to obtain consent from customers/clients to store any personal details.
What is my data used for?
When entering therapy I will ask for your consent to hold (or continue to hold) your personal information securely. The information requested is intentionally kept to a minimum but covers important information relevant to the commercial and operational nature of psychotherapy/counselling/coaching.
What data of mine is held?
Important points of attention / your rights:
Please be aware that:
How long will my personal data be kept?
I will erase any information 7 years after the end of our work together (Contract and Civil Law Statute of Limitation requires they be kept for this time).
