Data Protection Policies
Who We Are
Our website address is: https://simondeanehealth.com.
What is the GDPR?
GDPR is the General Data Protection Regulation. It comes into effect from 25 May 2018. It sets out a series of new EU laws concerning how data is processed and used. The objective of the regulation is to strengthen and standardise data protection laws for all EU citizens.
These regulations will apply to any organisation that controls and/or processes data on behalf of an individual or group of individuals. Those responsible for adhering to these regulations include employees of the organisation, including contractors, consultants, agents and third parties who have access to data either directly or indirectly.

This data is gathered through our 3rd party agencies such as mailchimp, surecard and wordpress. We do not personally hold any data, and all are on secure servers as per business terms for the above.
