WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU

We collect information about you when you book an appointment for a service or treatment, visit the salon for a service or treatment, buy a product or apply for a job, whether contact is online, on paper, by email or over the phone.

When a client books an appointment for the first time with us we will request a mobile number, this will allow us to send you an SMS reminder for this appointment and any future bookings you have with us

The information you give us may include your name, address, email address, phone number, age range & relevant history which may suggest that a service or treatment should not go ahead or certain products should not be used (eg allergies, pregnancy, skin conditions), payment and transaction information, IP address and CVs.

For some of our services and for allergy testing we may ask questions relating to your medical history. We will ask you for your consent prior to storing such information. Examples of medical data may be allergies, illnesses, pregnancy or an injury that may impact our service

On subsequent visits to us, we will remind you of your appointments by email a few days before and by SMS text the day before the appointment. This gives you the opportunity to change, add extra services or to cancel your booking. This works best for most clients but if you wish, you may opt-out at any time

For clients under the age of 16, we exclude from all marketing and will only keep and use their personal information with the consent of a parent, carer or guardian. Appointment reminders will go to the parent or guardian unless they select otherwise

 

 

HOW INFORMATION ABOUT YOU WILL BE USED

The data we request is for contacting you by phone SMS and Email or very occasionally by post

In law, we are allowed to use personal information, including sharing it outside the salon, 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 with:

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.

 

KEEPING IN TOUCH WITH OUR CLIENTS

We will email you occasionally, with offers or promotions, a reminder if you have not visited for a few months or if we are requesting your feedback, promoting our services to you, or to send you occasional news or greetings. Our marketing campaigns are automated and use rules which are based on services and products you may have had and information we collect from you.

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

 

E-NEWSLETTERS

We very occasionally email e-newsletters to inform you about products, services and treatments provided by our salon.  You have the opportunity to unsubscribe from e-newsletters at any time.

E-newsletters may contain subscriber tracking facilities within the actual email, for example, whether emails were opened or forwarded, which links were clicked on within the email content, the times, dates and frequency of activity.  We use this information to refine future email campaigns and provide you with more relevant content based around your activity.

You have the right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes.  If you no longer wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, please contact Jackie Mathis the Salon Owner on 01474 534455 or email jmhairdressing@btconnect.com.

 

EMPLOYMENT

The information we collect about employees, the purposes it is used for and who it will be shared with is set out in our employment contracts and employee handbook.

 

HOW LONG YOUR INFORMATION WILL BE KEPT FOR

Unless you request otherwise, we will keep your information no more than a maximum of 2 years from your last visit to the salon.

After 2 years we will archive all your personal information, except for your name, relevant client history (eg allergy test records which we keep for 4 years) and financial transactions (which we are obliged to keep for 6 years).

Information about unsuccessful job applicants will be deleted after four months.

 

WHERE YOUR INFORMATION IS KEPT

We store your details and notes on our computer system to ensure we maintain and exceed our level of service. For example, details of your hairstyle, colour formula, technical notes, allergy testing records, and beauty consultation records. These are all pin protected. Paper based records, are kept locked away

Your information is stored within the European Economic Area on secure servers provided by SalonIQ.  Any payment transactions are encrypted.  Sending information via the internet is not completely secure, although we will do our best to protect your information and prevent unauthorised access.

 

ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION AND CORRECTION

We want to make sure that your personal information is accurate and up-to-date.  You may ask us to correct or remove information you think is inaccurate.
