Information we collect
To aid your treatment or as part of purchasing something from my business you will normally provide us with certain information, such as your name, email address, postal address, medical information and payment information. We will store your information on an electronic patient record and diary system which is fully password protected. Paper based patient records and information will be stored in a locked filing cabinet.
Why we need your information and how we use it
We rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
where it is necessary for the purposes of the provision of health care as needed to provide our services, such as when we use your information to fulfil your podiatry assessment and treatment, or to provide customer support;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law;
Information sharing and disclosure

Medical professionals. With your consent we will share information with medical professionals such as your GP or consultant to allow continuity of care.
Service providers. We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my business, such as external reception services. We will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law and with your consent.
Compliance with laws. We may collect, use, retain, and share your information if legally required to.
