The personal information we collect might include your name, address, email address, IP address, and information regarding what web pages are accessed and when.

We obtain information about you when you use our website or social media. For example, when you contact us about our services or to ask a question, book an appointment through our online booking system, or when you contact us through Facebook or Instagram.

We may pass your information to our third party service providers, agents, subcontractors and other associated organisations for the purposes of completing the service requested by our customer (for example, booking an appointment online). When we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service, and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes. We can provide information on which services have access to your data in their role as data processor for Diana & George Ltd upon request.

 

Security safeguards

When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. Any sensitive information is encrypted and protected with a minimum 128 Bit encryption on SSL. When you are on a secure page, a lock icon will appear next to the web address.

Non-sensitive details (eg name, email address) are transmitted over the Internet, and although this website and any other systems we use for data capture use SSL protection, we cannot guarantee that the data will be 100% secure when it is transmitted. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us through enquiry forms, registration forms, or email enquiries, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. 

How you can access your information

If you change email address, or any of the other information we hold is inaccurate or out of date, you can contact us here to request that we update it.

You have the right to ask for a copy of the information that we hold about you. You also have the right to request that we delete the information that we hold about you.
