Data Protection Notice
Eutony UK is committed to protecting the privacy of your personal data in accordance with Data Protection legislation. This Data Protection Notice establishes the basis on which we will process your personal data.
In this Notice, ‘we’ (and any related expression) refers to Eutony Uk and Thérèse Melville, whose contact details are at the foot of this page.
This Notice applies whether you are, or you are acting on behalf of, a customer or a potential customer.
The Data Protection Legislation
As from 25th May 2018, most personal data processing in the UK is subject to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (`GDPR’), as supplemented by UK legislation.
Personal data is any information that directly or indirectly identifies a living individual.
For the purposes of the GDPR, we will be the controller of any personal data that we collect from or about you in connection with the provision of our professional services, or related activities such as promoting the Group’s business and market research or, where relevant, dealing with job applications.
Under the GDPR, data controllers are required to process personal data lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner, and in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data. Personal data must be collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes, and the data must be adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to those purposes, accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date, and kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for those purposes. Data controllers are responsible for, and must able to demonstrate, compliance with these principles.
What personal data do we collect from or about you?
If you make an enquiry
If you contact us with an enquiry about our services (either through the website or by phone, email or post), we will ask you to supply essential contact details (your name, e-mail address, phone number and, where applicable, the company or other person you represent and your job title), which we need in order to identify you and deal with your enquiry.
Depending on the nature of your enquiry, we may collect from you further details, such as the circumstances in which you are making the enquiry and the services that may be of interest to you and related information.
If you are or become a customer
If you are or become a customer by signing up on a course, and in the course of providing our professional services, we may collect further personal data from you, depending on the nature of the services we are providing. In certain cases, the information that we collect from you may be of a sensitive nature (for instance, health-related information), but we will only ask you to provide the information that is necessary and appropriate for the activity you have purchased.
If you do not provide us with the information we need, we may not be able to provide our professional services for you or the company or other people you represent.
When you make a personal payment for our services, details of the method of payment, your bank details or your credit or debit card number will be processed but is handled by compliant third parties. We have no access to any of this data
Why and on what basis do we process your personal data?
When you make an enquiry, we will process the personal data that you give us, or we collect from you or about you, so that we can supply you with the information that you have requested about our professional services, on the basis that it is necessary for our legitimate interests in promoting and marketing our professional services, or in order to provide a quotation for our services.
If you are or become a customer (or the company or other people you represent is or becomes a customer), we will process the personal data that you give us, or we collect from you or about you, in order to perform the contract that we have with you (or the company or other people you represent).
Where we need to process special categories of data (‘sensitive data’) relating to you, we will only do so with your explicit consent or where this is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
We will also process your personal data for internal record keeping, billing and accounting, and to respond to any queries, complaints or requests for further information, and for the purposes of archiving. The basis on which we do so is that it is necessary for our performance of the contract we have with you (or the company or other people you represent), or is necessary for our legitimate interests in managing our business and improving our professional services.
Staying in touch
We send out occasional email communications to customers who wish to receive it.
Who do we share your personal data with?
We will not use your personal data for any other purpose, or disclose it to any third party, without your consent unless we are required to do so by law, or as mentioned in this section.
Compliance with legal obligations
We may disclose your personal data if we are required to do so in order to comply with any legal or regulatory obligation or request, or where we have a legitimate interest in doing so, such as in order to enforce or apply our contract with you, to investigate potential breaches, or to protect our property and rights or those of others.
Where so we keep your data?
Data is stored on a personal computer at The London Eutony Centre. The data is secured by encryption and secured behind firewalls. Where such data is also available on mobile devices, these are secured by best practice methods.
How long do we keep personal data for?
If you contact us with an enquiry about our professional services but you do not subsequently become a customer (or the company or other people you represent does not do so), it is our policy to delete your personal data after twelve months.
If you are or become a customer (or the company or other people you represent is or becomes a customer), we normally retain contract information (including personal data) for a minimum period after the end of the relevant contract or client relationship, or for longer where it is necessary for us to do so for compliance with regulatory or other legal obligations. In some cases, it may be necessary for us to retain records indefinitely.
Our full data retention policy is available on request.
Personal data relating to our professional contacts will be retained for so long as is necessary, or until you indicate otherwise to us, but we will aim to update our contacts’ preferences on a periodic basis.
In certain cases, it may not be physically possible to delete certain data (for instance, where it is stored on a secure external server), in which case we will take appropriate steps to ensure that it is not available for re-use or disclosure to third parties.
