UK Data Privacy/Data Protection Law changed significantly on 25th May 2018.
The General Data Protection Regulation (or GDPR for short) is a positive step towards you having more control over how your data is used and how you are contacted by us.
If you are an individual, the rights you have under the GDPR include the following:
- The right to be informed
- The right of access
- The right to rectification
- The right to erasure
- The right to restrict processing
- The right to data portability
- The right to object
- Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling.
The changes will also help to better protect your Personal Data. We have therefore updated our privacy notice to reflect these changes.
We use your personal data to help us provide an excellent service, which includes tailoring the information we share with you to help ensure that it’s relevant, useful and timely.
We will respect your privacy and work hard to ensure we meet strict regulatory requirements.
We will not sell your personal data to third parties.
We will provide you with easy ways to manage and review your marketing choices if you receive direct marketing communications from us.
Doctors working for Travelling Physicians LTD are regulated by the GMC (UK). As you might expect, we are already subject to strict rules of confidentiality. It is therefore already part of the fabric and culture of our team to keep your information private and secure.
We would ask you to help us keep your data secure by carefully following any guidance and instructions we give e.g. communicating details and transferring funds to us etc.
How to Complain
If you are unhappy about how we are using your Personal Data then you can complain to us using the contact information above.
You also have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). Further details on how to raise a concern with the ICO can be found on the ICO’s website: https://ico.org.uk/concerns
Updating this Notice
We will, from time to time, update this Privacy Notice after 25th May 2018 to reflect emerging ICO guidance, requirements of the new Data Protection Act and any other relevant changes in the law or regulations. We will also seek to learn from any published cases of Data Protection breaches.
