What is personal data/information?
Personal data or information is any information about an individual from which a person can be identified, either directly or indirectly.

(b) Personal details of children with respect to whom our services are provided, including their names, ages, dates of births, preferences, behaviours, histories, as well as medical information.
Section 2: Processing your personal information
We design our processing of personal information with children in mind from the outset and use a data protection by design and by default approach.
We may use and process this personal information to:
(a) Enable and facilitate the provision of our services, including keeping in contact with you during the course of services being provided;
(b) Send you invoices, receipts and statements;
(c) Keep records of the cases upon which we have worked for a period of 5 years post conclusion of services being offered. This is a requirement of our insurance policy.

(b) In connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings;
(c) In order to establish, exercise or defend legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk); and
(d) To any person who we reasonably believe may apply to a court or other competent authority for disclosure of that personal information where, in our reasonable opinion, such court or authority would be reasonably likely to order disclosure of that personal information.
We will not under any circumstances share your personal information with third-parties for sales or marketing purposes.
Section 4: Security of your personal information
Any information we hold about you is stored and processed under our data protection policy, in line with The Data Protection Act 1998 and the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) adopted on 27th April 2016 and enforceable from 25th May 2018.
We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of personal information.
We will store paper copies of any sensitive personal information that is provided to us in locked filing cabinets in secure offices.
Data transmission by email and over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent by email or over the internet. However, we have taken precautions to make it as secure as possible. Our email account is password and pin protected and only accessed by Faye Jones and Sophie Potter.

If you would like to request a copy of the data we hold about you, this is called a subject access request.

We will always verify the identity of anyone making a subject request by asking them to supply appropriate evidence (for this purpose, we will usually accept a photocopy of your passport certified by a solicitor or bank plus an original copy of a utility bill showing your current address). There will not be an administration fee save for reasonable charge if a request is unfounded, excessive or substantial or if you request further copies of any documents.
