Looking after your information



The Mental Movement is committed to respecting and protecting your privacy. We believe in making things easy, so we’ve made our Privacy Policy as clear and simple as possible.
Our policy aims to answer common questions that people ask about how we protect your data.

Our promise to you

The Mental Movement is committed to protecting your privacy.  We will always keep your personal information safe and will never sell it to a third party. We will be clear and open with you about why we collect your personal information and about how we use it.

Who’s in control of your information?

We never lose sight of the fact that it is your personal information and you own it and can choose who has access to it and how its processed.
We are registered as ‘Data Controllers’ with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). Details are published on a register on the ICO website where you can also find lots of useful information about Data Protection, what it means to you as an individual and how it applies to businesses.
The law within the European Economic Area gives those whose personal data is held by The Mental Movement specific rights to access and rectify personal data held about them. These include the right to:
  • to obtain from The Mental Movement, confirmation that personal data is held, as well as a written description of such personal data, the purpose(s) for which it is being used, the source(s) of the personal data and details of any recipients
  • request rectification of personal data which is inaccurate
  • request deletion of data where there is no need for The Mental Movement to keep it
  • request The Mental Movement stops processing associated with your personal data

  • To improve the products and services we provide
  • To contact you in response to a specific enquiry
  • To customise the website for you
  • To send you promotional emails about information, services, offers and other things we think might be relevant to you
4. How do you store the data you collect?
If you are a client that completes a contract it will be saved to an encrypted hard drive file and the original file will be deleted from email. For your information, any written notes taken during client sessions are anonymised, as are subsequent electronic records which are also password protected and saved to an encrypted hard drive.  
If you sign up for or buy a service/product via Eventbrite your details will remain with Eventbrite unless you give explicit consent otherwise. The Eventbrite privacy policy can be found here.
If you are a prospective client or interested party that provides your email address via our website then those details will be stored and will remain with Mailchimp. The Mailchimp privacy policy can be found here.
5. How long do you retain the personal data you hold?
If you are a client, no longer than one year after you cease being a client. Therefore if you want to work with us again at a later date, we may ask you to complete a new contract and resupply your details.
Details provided to Eventbrite or via my website will be retained indefinitely.
