We at Better Bodies Sports Therapy take your privacy seriously. This policy covers the collection, processing and other use of personal data under the Data Protection Act (DPA) 2018, which is the UK’s implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
For the purpose of the DPA and GDPR we are the data controller and any enquiry regarding the collection or processing of your data should be addressed to Charlotte Burton at Better Bodies Sports Therapy, The Fitness Collective, Bedford MK40 1AH. Alternatively, you can email your enquiry to email@example.com
Information we collect
We will collect personal data directly provided to us by you, e.g. your name, date of birth, e-mail address and telephone number, as well as your medical history. This has been provided to us by you, therefore, with your consent.
Some treatments should not be performed under certain medical conditions, therefore, the information you provide to us should include all known medical conditions and all questions should be answered honestly. It is your responsibility to keep the Therapist updated as to any changes in your medical profile and there shall be no liability on the Therapist’s part should you fail to do so.
Your payment information provided when you make a purchase through credit/debit card is not received or stored by us. That information is processed securely and privately by the third-party payment processors that we use. Better Bodies Sports Therapy will not have access to that information at any time. We may share your personal data with our payment processors, but only for the purpose of completing the relevant payment transaction. Such payment processors are banned from using your personal data, except to provide these necessary payment services to us, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your personal data and payment information.
