What personal data I collect and why I collect it

Contact forms and email correspondence

I assume that if you use a contact form on my website or email me then you are happy for me to have your relevant details, and to correspond with you about my services

You can ask me to stop contacting you and you can ask me to delete your information at any time.

Appointments

I keep the details necessary for your appointment, which can include your name, address, phone number, email address and card details.

Client records

I keep brief written records of client meetings. However, there is nothing in these notes to identify an individual.
