What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We collect information about you when you book an appointment for a service, visit the salon for a service, buy a product or apply for a job, whether contact is online, on paper, by email or over the phone.

When a client books an appointment for the first time with us we will request a mobile number, this will allow us to send you an SMS reminder for this appointment and any future bookings you have with us

The information you give us may include your name, address, email address, phone number & relevant history ( which may suggest that a service or treatment should not go ahead or certain products should not be used eg allergies, pregnancy, skin conditions), payment and transaction information, IP address and CVs.

For some of our services and for allergy testing we may ask questions relating to your medical history. We will ask you for your consent prior to storing such information. Examples of medical data may be allergies, illnesses, pregnancy or an injury that may impact our service

On subsequent visits to us, we will remind you of your appointments  by SMS text the day before the appointment. This gives you the opportunity to change, add extra services or to cancel your booking. This works best for most clients but if you wish, you may opt-out at any time

For clients under the age of 16, will only keep and use their personal information with the consent of a parent, carer or guardian. Appointment reminders will go to the parent or guardian.
