Data Collections and Uses 

Overview

This Policy describes how we collect and use your Personal Information, whether it is shared and/or disclosed, and how we address privacy matters, such as deletion of your Personal Information upon request, and opting-out of marketing communications.

Data Retention

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, treatment or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

We have a legal obligation to retain your records for 8 years after your most recent appointment (or age 25, if this is longer), but after this period you can ask us to delete your records if you wish. Otherwise, we will retain your records indefinitely in order that we can provide you with the best possible care should you need to see us at some future date.

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see your legal rights below for further information.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

      How we use your personal data

      We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. It will also be used in accordance with the consent you have given. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:

        This means processing your data where it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract.

      • Legitimate Interest

        This means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best treatment/product and the most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).

      • Comply with a legal or regulatory obligation

        This means processing your personal data where it is necessary for compliance with a legal or regulatory obligation that we are subject to.

      • Marketing Purposes

      • Third party service providers and partners

        We may engage third party companies or individuals as service providers or business partners to process Personal Information and support our business and our patients. Please contact us for a list of the third party service providers and/or partners we utilise.

      • Note that if a change in ownership happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal data in the same way as set out in this privacy notice.

      Security

      Monmouth Clinic takes appropriate administrative, technical, physical and organisational security measures to protect your Personal Information from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.

      In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

      We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
