WHO WE ARE
WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU
We collect the minimum amount of information about you when you book an appointment for a service or treatment, visit the salon for a service or treatment, apply for a job, whether contact is online, on paper, by email or over the phone.
The information you give us may include your name, address, email address, phone number, relevant history – for example dates of services, colour formula codes, your preferred stylists, payment and transaction information and even how you like your coffee! We also keep CVs on file for a maximum of two years.
For clients under the age of 16, we will only keep and use their personal information with the consent of a parent, carer or guardian.
HOW INFORMATION ABOUT YOU WILL BE USED
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 i.e. to provide the service or treatment you have requested and to communicate with you about your appointments. We will contact you via phone, email or SMS. We consider your having made the appointment as consent to undertake this activity but, if you want, you may opt-out at any time.
• After visiting us, we may send you an email or SMS asking you to rate our services and provide feedback. We consider your agreement and participation in the service as consent to undertake this activity but, if you want, you may opt out at any time.
• We will not undertake phone, mail, email or SMS marketing without you first providing consent for us to do so. Of course, you may opt out of receiving marketing material at any time.
We have rigorous data protection and security policies in place with all our suppliers.
Our team have access to the following details: your name, telephone number and email address. The team are not able to download any details electronically.
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.
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. If you no longer wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, please contact [email protected]
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 to contact you no more than eight times a year for a maximum of 1 year from your last visit to the salon.
Unless requested otherwise by yourself, your information will be kept for a minimum of 6 years. After this time we will delete all your personal information, except for your name, relevant client history (e.g. 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 one year.
