Data Protection Law Changes and My Privacy Policy

Unless you've ditched all your e-mail systems and avoided the news recently, you probably are aware that there are data protection law changes coming into place from May 2018 (in the EU). 

Many years ago now I worked in data protection and information compliance in the public sector, often involving sensitive data about people (it was in the legal field). In those days, it was very much about looking after data, keeping it accurate, keeping it secure and not sharing it with anyone who wasn't entitled to it. And these are pretty much the principles I took with me into my professional hypnotherapy practice.  

And, of course, these principles carry on within the new data protection regime that anyone who deals with anyone are currently getting their heads around (it's a mammoth piece of legislation!). 

This short blog is just a quick update on data protection related things.

To meet the new requirements I have updated my Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy and as well as clicking these links you can use the links at the bottom of every page.

My Privacy Policy outlines how your personal data is collected, used and protected, as well as your rights with regard to it. Obviously a lot will depend on your interactions with me and this site as to what data is held and for what purposes. For example, if you have signed up to receive my fortnightly Dan's Digest e-mail then you will have provided your name and e-mail address and consented to receiving these rather wonderful and informative e-mails from me - and of course you can opt out of receiving them anytime you wish. If you purchase a download from my hypnosis download shop then enough information is collected to fulfil this contract (your name, e-mail and with payment processed through Paypal). And if you are a client then we will be going into enough depth so that I can provide hypnotherapy services to you in a professional manner.

I take the confidentiality and security of your personal data very seriously, whether that is data provided electronically or in hard copy.

So do take a look at the updated Privacy Policy and if you have any questions then just let me know. 

My very best wishes
