Privacy Policy

When you supply your personal details to Vikki Watts Acupuncture they are stored and processed for three reasons:

  1. I need to collect personal information about you and your health in order to provide you with the best possible treatment. Your requesting treatment and my agreement to provide that care constitutes a contract. You can, of course, refuse to provide the information, but if you were to do that, I would not be able to provide treatment.

  2. I have a “Legitimate Interest” in collecting that information, because without it I couldn’t do my job effectively and safely.

  3. It is important that I can contact you in order to confirm your appointments or to update you on matters related to your medical care. This again constitutes “Legitimate Interest” but this time it is your legitimate interest.

I have a legal obligation to retain your records for 7 years after your most recent appointment (or age 25, for minors). After this time your records will be destroyed in a method compliant with GDPR.

Your records are stored:

On paper, in locked filing cabinets. When transported to my clinic, every step will be taken to ensure safe arrival at the clinic.

Your phone number or email address may be used electronically on my personal laptop and mobile phone to contact you in relation to appointments or with information relevant to your care. These are password protected. There is a rolling program for deleting emails and your electronic records.

If you wish to contact me via my Facebook page please be advised this is password protected but for the historic issues with privacy associated with Facebook you may wish to think about what info you send to me.

This Website may, from time to time, provide links to other websites. Vikki Watts Acupuncture has no control over such websites and is in no way responsible for the content thereof. This Policy does not extend to your use of such websites. Users are advised to read the privacy policy or statement of other websites prior to using them.

I will never share your data with anyone who does not need access without your written consent. Only the following people will have routine access to your data:

Your practitioner – Vikki Watts

You have the right to see what personal data of yours I hold and you can also ask me to correct any factual errors. Provided the legal minimum period has elapsed you may also ask me to erase your records.

I want you to be absolutely confident that I am treating your personal data responsibly and that I am doing everything I can to make sure that the only people who can access that data have a genuine need to do so. 

Here are of the details you will need for contact:
