GDPR guidelines now give you more control on how your data is stored and used. Affinity Bodyworks will use your data in the following ways:-
During your consultation, you will be asked for personal information. The following information will tell you what data is recorded, why it is needed and how it is processed.
- Legally, any medical records relating to any of your treatments have to be kept for a minimum of 7 years. This will include any reports and referral letters either on paper or via email. Your name, address and date of birth are required to correctly identify your records. You may request a copy of your records free of charge at any time. Please allow 7 working days for requests to be processed.
Your email address and telephone number(s) will only be used to contact you with regards to appointments, reminders or with information/advice relating to your treatment. You may also be contacted occasionally with information such as newsletters. These will be directly related to services provided by Affinity Bodyworks and occasionally, requests for feedback. Consent is needed to receive these communications and you may withdraw your consent at any time. Please allow 7 working days for changes to be made.
- Online booking and records:
The online booking system used by Affinity Bodyworks is Cliniko. Cliniko is an Australian based company who comply with the new GDPR guidelines and store your data within their secure database. At no time do they have access to your personal information. You will be given options for consent when using the online booking system. Consent will also be specifically requested on the initial consultation form. You will be periodically required to fill out a new form to keep your details current. Consent for appointment reminders via SMS and/or email may be withdrawn at any time, please allow 7 working days for changes to be made.

"Affinity Bodyworks fully complies with the most up to date Data Protection Policy and has a transparent approach to Data Processing which empowers individuals to know about the collection and use of their personal data. We collect data for ensuring we have the right information for assessing your suitability for treatment, for completing the appropriate treatment, for contacting you regarding appointment follow ups and for referral to your GP or other healthcare practitioners if deemed necessary. Your data may be viewed by clinic staff to ensure continuity of care is given and for standard clinic running purposes. In addition, the data will also be shared with NHS Track and Trace if asked as this is mandatory. The therapist has the right to refuse treatment if such data is not collected. We only collect data that is relevant for those purposes and we keep it for 7 years. All information held will be treated as strictly confidential and will only be released to another external party with the consent of the client."
