Global Privacy Statement
As part of Skin Deep Med Spa’s commitment to customers’ privacy, we want you to be familiar with how we collect, use and disclose data.
How do we collect information from you?
We obtain information about you through the following ways:
When you visit this Website
Skin Deep Med Spa, like many companies, automatically collects the following information:
Skin Deep Med Spa may collect or obtain your Personal Information from third parties who provide it to us. This may include referral sources; social network sites or services (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc). If you use a third-party connection or log-in (e.g. Facebook Connect, Twitter, or Google+) to access our services, create a membership or profile on any part of the Services, access our content or forward our content to another person, platform or service, we may also receive your username or email address for those third-party services or other information available about you or collected from you on those services.
Please note that we are not responsible for the information you volunteer about yourself in the discussions in certain public areas of the Services, such as forums, blogs, wikis, chat rooms, private messages, message boards or other publicly accessible interaction, or information that you choose to make public in your member profile or other areas of the Services that allow users to upload or post content.
We discourage users from posting such Personal Information in this fashion. You can change your publicly available information at any time via your profile page. To request removal of your Personal Information from these areas, please contact us. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your Personal Information, in which case we will let you know we are unable to do so and why.
What type of information is collected from you?
The personal information that Skin Med Spa collects, stores and uses might include:
Data protection laws recognize certain categories of personal information as sensitive and therefore requiring greater protection, for example information about your health, ethnicity and religion.
We do not usually collect sensitive data about you unless there is a clear and valid reason for doing so and data protection laws allow us to do so.
Where appropriate, we will clarify why we are collecting this type of information and what it will be used for.
How and why is your information used?
Skin Deep Med Spa may use your information for a number of different purposes, which may include:
How long is your information kept for?
Skin Deep Med Spa keeps your information for no longer than is necessary for the purposes it was collected for. The length of time we retain your personal information for is determined by operational and legal considerations.
For example, we are legally required to hold some types of information to fulfill our statutory and regulatory obligations (e.g. health/safety and tax/accounting purposes). We review our retention periods on a regular basis.
Who has access to your information?
Skin Deep Med Spa does not sell or rent your information to third parties.
We do not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.
However, we may disclose your information to third parties in order to achieve the other purposes set out in this policy. These third parties may include:
Third parties working on our behalf: We may pass your information to our third-party service providers, suppliers, agents, subcontractors and other associated organizations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf. However, when we use these third parties, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the services and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and prevents them from using it for their own direct marketing purposes.
Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties for them to use for their own direct marketing purposes, unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.
Data protection law requires Skin Med Spa to rely on one or more lawful grounds to process your personal information. We consider the following grounds to be relevant:
Where you have provided specific consent to us using your personal information in a certain way, such as to send you email, text and/or telephone marketing.
Where we are entering into a contract with you or performing our obligations under it like when you contract for the Company’s services or products.
Where necessary so that we can comply with a legal or regulatory obligation to which we are subject or to comply with a court order.
Where it is necessary to protect life or health or a safeguarding issue which requires us to share your information with the emergency services.
Where it is reasonably necessary to achieve our or others’ legitimate interests (as long as what the information is used for is fair and does not unduly impact your rights).
When we process your personal information in this way, we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws. We will not use your personal information where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (for example, where such use would be excessively intrusive and no other legitimate basis exists for using your information).
When we use sensitive personal information, we require an additional legal basis to do so under data protection laws, so we will either do so on the basis of your explicit consent or another route available to us at law (for example, if we need to process it for employment, social security or social protection purposes, your vital interests, or, in some cases, if it is in the public interest for us to do so).
We will only send you marketing communications by email, text and telephone if you have explicitly provided your prior consent. You may opt out of our marketing communications at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the end of our marketing emails.
You have a choice about whether or not you wish to receive information from us. If you do not want to receive direct marketing communications from us, then you can select your choices by ticking the relevant boxes situated on the form used to collect your information.
We’re committed to putting you in control of your data so you’re free to change your marketing preferences (including to tell us that you don’t want to be contacted for marketing purposes) at any time. Feel free to contact us via any of the methods listed on the Website to discuss your preferences.
We will not use your personal information for marketing purposes if you have indicated that you do not wish to be contacted and will retain your details on a suppression list to help ensure that we do not continue to contact you. However, we may still need to contact you for administrative purposes.
