How we use your personal data
We act as a data controller for use of your personal data to provide relevant coaching and mentoring. We act as a data controller and processor regarding the processing of credit card and online payments.
We always undertake to protect your personal data, including any health and contact details, in a manner which is consistent with our duty of professional confidence and the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) concerning data protection. We will also take reasonable security measures to protect your personal data storage.
We may use your personal data where there is an overriding public interest in using the information e.g. in order to safeguard an individual, or to prevent a serious crime. Also, where there is a legal requirement such as a formal court order. We may use your data for marketing purposes such as newsletters, but this would be subject to you giving us your express consent.
Do you share my information with other organisations?
We will keep information about you confidential. We will only disclose your information with other third parties with your express consent except for the following categories of third parties:
ï Any contractors and advisors that provide a service to us or act as our agents on the understanding that they keep the information confidential
ï Anyone to whom we may transfer our rights and duties under any agreement we have with you
ï Any legal or crime prevention agencies and/or to satisfy any regulatory request
We will seek your express consent before sharing your information with your GP or other healthcare providers. However, if we believe that your life is in danger then we may pass your information onto an appropriate authority (such as the police, social services in the case of a child or vulnerable adult, or GP in case of self-harm) using the legal basis of vital interests.
We may share your case history in an anonymised form with our peers for the purpose of professional development. This may be at trade association meetings, conferences, online forums, and through publishing in medical journals, trade magazines or online professional sites. We will seek your explicit consent before processing your data in this way.
What are your rights?
Every individual has the right to see, amend, delete, or have a copy of data held that can identify you, with some exceptions. You do not need to give a reason to see your data.
If you want to access your data, you must make a subject access request in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Under special circumstances, some information may be withheld.

What safeguards are in place to ensure data that identifies me is secure?
We only use information that may identify you in accordance with GDPR. This requires us to process personal data only if there is a legitimate basis for doing so and that any processing must be fair and lawful.
Within the health sector, we must also follow the common law duty of confidence, which means that where identifiable information about you has been given in confidence, it should be treated as confidential and only shared for the purpose of providing direct healthcare. We will protect your information, inform you of how your information will be used, and allow you to decide if and how your information can be shared.
We also ensure the information we hold is kept in secure locations, restrict access to information to authorised personnel only, protect personal and confidential information held on equipment such as laptops with encryption (which masks data so that unauthorised users cannot see or make sense of it). We ensure external data processors that support us are legally and contractually bound to operate and prove security arrangements are in place where data that could or does identify a person are processed.
MICHELLE DEAN HEALTH is registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) as a data controller and collects data for a variety of purposes. A copy of the registration is available through the ICO website (search by business name).
How long do you hold confidential information?
All records held by MICHELLE DEAN HEALTH will be kept for the duration specified by guidance from our professional association, FNTP.
