HOW INFORMATION ABOUT YOU WILL BE USED

 

In law, we are allowed to use personal information, including sharing it outside the salon/ barbershop, only if we have a proper reason to do so, for example:

 

  • To fulfil a contract with you ie to provide the service or treatment you have requested and to communicate with you about your appointments

  • When it is in our legitimate interest ie there is a business or commercial reason to do so, unless this is outweighed by your rights or interests

  • When you consent to it: we will always ask for your consent to hold and use health and medical information.

 

We will therefore share your information:

 

  • Providers of our salon / barbershop software system – SALON GENIUS

  • Suppliers of our website WIX.COM

 

 

We have rigorous data protection and security policies in place with all our suppliers.

 

We will not share your information with any other third party without your consent except to help prevent fraud, or if required to do so by law.

 

MARKETING

 

We would like to send you information about products and services which may be of interest to you.  We will ask for your consent to receive marketing information.

 

If you have consented to receiving marketing, you may opt out at a later date.

 

You have the right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes or giving your information to third party suppliers of products or services.  If you no longer wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, please contact us via email root66haircare@gmail.com or 01902 491664.

Procedure for personal data breaches

This procedure is to be followed if there is a breach of personal data.  The person responsible for managing the process is the salon owner, if they were to be absent then it would be the next senior level within the salon.

All decisions on whether or not to notify the Information Commisioner’s Office (ICO) or individuals affected will be counter-signed by the salon owner.

 

This procedure covers:

·         What is a personal data breach?

·         What must be recorded?

·         Assessing the likelihood and severity of the adverse consequences of the breach

·         When do breaches have to be reported to the ICO?

·         What must be reported to the ICO?

·         How to report a breach to the ICO

·         Telling individuals affected about a breach

·         What are the consequences of failing to notify the ICO?

 

WHAT IS A PERSONAL DATA BREACH?

 

A breach of security leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of or access to, personal data.

 

Examples include:

·         access by an unauthorised third party

·         deliberate or accidental action by a data controller (the salon or barbershop) or a data processor (third party supplier, who must inform you without undue delay as soon as they become aware of it)

·         sending personal data to an incorrect recipient

·         computer or data storage devices containing personal data being lost or stolen

·         alteration of personal data without permission

·         loss of availability of personal data (ie data is made unavailable and this unavailability has a significant negative effect on individuals)

 

WHAT MUST BE RECORDED?

All breaches must be recorded, whether or not they need to be reported to the ICO.  If you decide not to report a breach, you must be able to justify this decision and it must therefore be documented.

 

Record:

·         The facts relating to the breach

·         Its effects

·         Remedial actions taken

·         What caused the breach and how a recurrence could be prevented

 

 

ASSESSING THE LIKELIHOOD AND SEVERITY OF THE NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES OF THE BREACH

Use the template in Appendix A to help answer the following questions:

·         What is the likelihood and severity of the resulting risk to people’s rights and freedoms?

·         What are the potential negative consequences to the individuals concerned?

·         How serious and substantial are the consequences? Don’t forget this can include emotional distress, as well as financial, physical or material damage.

 

If there is a high risk of negatively affecting individuals’ rights and freedoms (scoring 6 or more points on the risk assessment template at Appendix 1), then it must be reported to the ICO.  This includes personal data breaches notified to you by third party data processors.

 

You may also need to notify third parties such as the police, insurers, banks or credit card companies who could help to reduce the risk of financial loss to individuals.

 

WHEN DO BREACHES HAVE TO BE REPORTED TO THE ICO?

Breaches which are likely to result in a high risk of negatively affecting individuals’ rights and freedoms must be reported no later than 72 hours after you first become aware of it.  If you take longer than this, the reasons for delay must be documented.

 

 

WHAT MUST BE REPORTED TO THE ICO?

A description of the nature of the personal data breach including:

·         The categories and approximate number of individuals concerned and the categories and approximate numbers of personal data records concerned (which may be the same number)

·         The name and contact details of the person who can provide more information if required

·         The likely consequences of the personal data breach

·         The measures taken, or proposed to be taken, to deal with the personal data breach including measures taken to mitigate any possible negative effects

 

The information can be provided in phases if it is not all available within 72 hours, as long as this is still done without undue further delay and you tell the ICO when to expect further information from you.

 

You must prioritise the investigation, give it adequate resources and deal with it urgently.
