7. DATA SECURITY

HOW LONG WILL YOU USE MY PERSONAL DATA FOR?

We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

By law we have to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for six years after they cease being customers for tax purposes.

As regards the Services-related Data and the Health Data, we aim to keep this information for as long as you are a customer, because it will help us to keep track of your information in order to provide our services and for a period of 7 years thereafter in case you are a returning customer. After that period, the information will be kept anonymised for statistical and investigation purposes. 

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see your legal rights below for further information.

In some circumstances we will anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

HOW DO YOU STORE MY PERSONAL DATA? 

We may store and process any information collected in accordance with this privacy policy electronically. Said information will be stored in the cloud by contracting with well-known third party vendors. Any electronic data kept on devices will be saved in a secure folder using a unique password to protect data against accidental loss.

When we need to communicate with you regarding your personal data, such as sensitive health data, recommendations including test results and health check questionnaire answers we will communicate via encrypted email and send you a specific password to access the contents, OR we will share information with you via a personal secure google drive file from where you can view, download and upload your clinic documents.

If you do not want to receive your email encrypted, you can request this in writing via email stating: 

“I confirm I wish to receive all communications with you via standard email and I understand the associated data protection risks” 

Is understood that you acknowledge the risk involved. 

Basic generic information including instructions for use of purchased services and products will be sent via standard email.

Hard copies of registration documents and consultation notes will be kept for 7 years as per the terms of our insurance. After which data stored in electronic form will be destroyed, to the extent electronically possible. 

8. YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS

Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
