Use of Data
General Data Processing Regulations
InTeDev Focussed Psychotherapy (IFP) takes your privacy seriously. All personal information provided to IFP on this form, or through any other method of communication, is collected and held in accordance with General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). We will use your information to determine a suitable therapy route and such information has been deemed to be willingly provided. Without this information, IFP cannot guarantee the efficacy of any therapy programme.
IFP will not pass your data to any third party without your consent or unless mandated by a legal authority such as the Police or Courts. We will not transfer your information outside the European Economic Area. We will treat your personal information in accordance with the data protection legislation.
Data held on individuals by IFP, if in electronic format (including emails) will be stored on a password-protected PC or laptop to ensure access to it is restricted. IFP will not store personal data in “the cloud”. Data held in paper format will be secured in a locked filing case or cabinet. Data will be deleted once IFP has no need for it and it has expired based on the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC) terms and conditions (see below).
Under GDPR, you may request that data held on you by IFP be sent to you. This will be done by electronic means (scanned PDF format by email) and within 1 (one) month from the date of request. IFP will require proof of identity for this request. Note: this means only the raw data; it does not include any analysis work that has been subsequently done.GDPR allows individuals to request that data about them held by IFP is deleted. However, IFP operates under the auspices of the GHSC. The GHSC requires that IFP keep records on clients for a minimum of 7 (seven) years. This requirement supersedes the GDPR Right to Deletion. Individuals may request personal data held by IFP be deleted 7 (seven) years after the last date of their therapy.
GDPR gives individuals the Right of Portability in order to promote competition and allow individuals control over their data. This allows an individual to request that their information is passed onto someone else. Note: this means only the raw data; it does not include any analysis work that has subsequently been done. IFP will require proof of identity for this request. Such data transfer will be done by electronic means (scanned PDF format by email) and within 1 (one) month from the date of request.
