Privacy Policy

Bee healthy with Gabi holds some information about you. This document outlines how that information is used, who I may share it with, and how I keep it secure. 

 What I Do

I provide nutritional therapy services to clients to improve their health through diet and lifestyle changes. My main focus is preventative healthcare to optimise physical and mental health and improve chronic health conditions. Assessing the client's diet and lifestyle and the possibility of testing (i.e. gut health tests, nutritional deficiency tests, etc.) will help me understand the contributing factors to their health issues.  Personalised diet plans and some cases, certain supplements are offered to help regain balance.

How I Obtain Your Personal Data

Information provided by you

You provide me with personal data in the following ways:

  • By signing terms of engagement and consent form
  • By completing my nutritional therapy questionnaire
  • During our nutritional therapy consultation
  • Via email, over the telephone or by post
  • By taking credit card and online payment

This may include the following information:

  • basic details (such as name, address, contact details)
  • details of contact I have had with you, such as referrals and appointment requests
  • health information (your previous medical history, dietary, lifestyle, supplement and medicine details, test results, clinic notes and nutritional plan)
  • GP contact information

I only use this information to provide you with direct healthcare. This means that the legal basis for me holding your personal data is for legitimate interest. 

 How I use your personal data

Paper records will be stored in a locked filing system; electronic records will be kept in a password-secure filing system. All records will be held for seven years, kept strictly confidential, and accessible only to me (the Nutritional Therapist) to adhere to the General Data Protection Regulation Act 2018. If a client wishes to ask to erase their records, a request can be made in accordance with the GDPR Act 2018.

I will keep information about you confidential. I will only disclose your information with other third parties with your express consent except for the following categories of third parties:

  • My  registrant bodies, CNHC and BANT, for the processing of a complaint made by you
  • Any legal or crime prevention agencies and/or to satisfy any regulatory request (e.g. CNHC) if I have a duty to do so or if the law allows us to do so
  • I may share your information with supplement companies and testing companies as part of providing you with direct healthcare. I will not include any sensitive information.

I will seek your consent before sharing your information with your GP or other healthcare providers. However, if I believe that your life is in danger, then I may pass your information on to an appropriate authority (such as the police, social services in the case of a child or vulnerable adult, or a GP in case of self-harm) using the legal basis of vital interests and duty of care.
