Reflex and Holistics ("Gemma Nesbitt") operates reflexandholistics.co.uk and may operate other websites. It is Gemma Nesbitt's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Gemma Nesbitt collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Gemma Nesbitt's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Gemma Nesbitt's visitors use its website. From time to time, Gemma Nesbitt may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Gemma Nesbitt also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on reflexandholistics.co.uk blogs/sites. Gemma Nesbitt only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Gemma Nesbitt's websites choose to interact with Gemma Nesbitt in ways that require Gemma Nesbitt to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Gemma Nesbitt gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at reflexandholistics.co.uk to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Gemma Nesbitt are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Gemma Nesbitt collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Gemma Nesbitt. Gemma Nesbitt does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Gemma Nesbitt may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Gemma Nesbitt may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Gemma Nesbitt does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Gemma Nesbitt's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Gemma Nesbitt will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Gemma Nesbitt discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Gemma Nesbitt believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Gemma Nesbitt, third parties or the public at large.

General Data Protection Regulation
What data we hold and where
Information held by Reflex and Holistics is held on the consultation sheets that are initially completed by the client at their first visit in order for the therapist to understand any medical or physical conditions that may have an impact on the treatment. If you provide any sensitive medical/health information to me via email, text, phone conversation or social media messenger services, I will only hold and use this if we proceed to treatment, at which time I will require explicit consent from you to hold this data. If we do not proceed to treatment, I will securely destroy all information sent.
What we do with the data
Only Gemma Nesbitt uses the names and email addresses that are held on this database.
The consultation sheets are updated by the therapist after each treatment is carried out, detailing what treatment was given, the medium that may have been used and how the client has reacted.
All information on both the database and the consultation sheets are held in strict confidence and will never be provided to third parties whatsoever. The information is solely for the use of Reflex and Holistics. In order to give professional reflexology treatments, I will need to gather and retain information about your health and well-being. I will only use this information for informing reflexology treatments and associated recommendations concerning aspects of health and well-being. This will be discussed in full at an appointment.
Accessing personal data
It is possible for a client to request to see their consultation sheet during a treatment. If a client wishes to have a copy of the information on the sheet held for them, then this request must be put forward to Gemma Nesbitt.
