How Long is Your Personal Information Retained? 

Except as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law or regulatory requirements, we will retain your personal information only for as long as we believe is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which the personal information was collected (including, for the purpose of meeting any legal, accounting or other reporting requirements or obligations). As a minimum that will be until one year after the expiry of the legal limitation period for bringing a legal claim against the company in respect of the services provided. However, we may notify you that we will retain your personal information for a longer period for the purposes of maintaining our records of the services provided. 

In most cases, personal information which is maintained by the Company will be deleted 7 years after the discharge of all fees incurred in your care or at the end of any service we have provided to you, whichever is the later.   

Updating Your Personal Information 

It is important that the information contained in our records is both accurate and current. If your personal information happens to change during the course of your relationship with us, please keep us informed of such changes. 

You have a right to have your personal information corrected if it is inaccurate and to have incomplete personal information completed. In some circumstances, we may decide to update our record of your personal information by appending additional text without deleting the original record.

If we cannot provide you with access to your personal information, we will try to inform you of the reasons why subject to any legal or regulatory restrictions.

Data protection legislation also provides you with certain other rights. These are not always absolute rights and must be considered in the wider scope of the legislation. These rights are: 

  • right to erasure, also known as the right to be forgotten. The broad principle underpinning this right is to enable an individual to request the deletion or removal of personal data where there is no compelling reason for its continued processing.

Where in use, CCTV cameras are there for the protection of employees and third parties, and to protect against theft, vandalism and damage to our goods and property.

Monitoring

Some of our premises are equipped with CCTV. Where in use, CCTV cameras are there for the protection of visitors and members of staff, and to protect against theft, vandalism and damage to goods and property on the premises. Generally, recorded images are routinely destroyed and are not shared with third parties unless there is suspicion of a crime, in which case they may be provided to the police or other appropriate government agency or authority. 

Calls to and from our offices are also recorded for our service user’s and staff safety and protection and training purposes.

This section is not meant to suggest that you will be monitored or your actions subject to constant surveillance. It is meant to bring to your attention the fact that such monitoring may occur if you come to our premises.

Can we use your information for marketing our products and services? 

We may send you email newsletters if you are opt-in to receive such correspondence. We may also send you details of new services or initiatives but only if it is within our legitimate interest to do so. 

We will always let you know that you can opt out from receiving marketing material and you can let us know at any time if you no longer wish to receive direct marketing offers from us. You can do so by emailing us here or writing to us at, dpo@all-care.co.uk.

  • where the personal information is publicly available; or
  • with your consent where such consent is required by law. 

In any such a case, we will not disclose more personal information that is required in the circumstances. 

Notification and Consent

Privacy laws do not generally require us to obtain your consent for the collection, use or disclosure of personal information for the purpose of establishing and managing our relationship with you although we tend to obtain this for marketing purposes. 

Where your consent is required or requested this will be requested and recorded in a clear unambiguous way. We will also seek to consider the views of any minor notwithstanding that the consent from the holder of parental responsibility shall be sought for those below the age of 13. 

Where your consent is required for our collection, use or disclosure of your personal information, you may, at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and to reasonable notice, withdraw your consent. All communications with respect to such withdrawal or variation of consent should be in writing and addressed to the Company using the details provided below. 

How is Your Personal Information Protected? 

We endeavour to maintain physical, technical and procedural safeguards that are appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information in question. These safeguards are designed to protect your personal information from loss and unauthorized access, copying, use, modification or disclosure.

Your personal information will not normally be processed outside the European Economic Area. Where it is necessary or desirable to do so, we will seek your prior consent and we will take steps to ensure that suitable safeguards apply. 

How Long is Your Personal Information Retained? 

Except as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law or regulatory requirements, we will retain your personal information only for as long as we believe is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which the personal information was collected (including, for the purpose of meeting any legal, accounting or other reporting requirements or obligations). This will be notified to you and may vary between our different marketing campaigns.

Updating Your Personal Information

It is important that the information contained in our records is both accurate and current. If your personal information happens to change during the course of your relationship with us, please keep us informed of such changes.

You have a right to have your personal information corrected if it is inaccurate and to have incomplete personal information completed. In some circumstances, we may decide to update our record of your personal information by appending additional text without deleting the original record.

Right to Access to Your Personal Information 

You can ask to see the personal information that we hold about you. If you want to review, verify or correct your personal information, please contact the Company. Please note that any such communication may be required in writing.

When requesting access to your personal information, please note that we may request specific information from you to enable us to confirm your identity and right to access, as well as to search for and provide you with the personal information that we hold about you. We may in specific circumstances charge you a fee to access your personal information; however, we will always advise you if there is any fee in advance. If you require assistance in preparing your request, please contact us.

Your right to access the personal information that we hold about you is not absolute. There are instances where applicable law or regulatory requirements allow or require us to refuse to provide some or all of the personal information that we hold about you. In addition, the personal information may have been destroyed, erased or made anonymous in accordance with our record retention obligations and practices.

If we cannot provide you with access to your personal information, we will try to inform you of the reasons why subject to any legal or regulatory restrictions.

Your other legal rights 

Data protection legislation also provides you with certain other rights. These are not always absolute rights and must be considered in the wider scope of the legislation. These rights are:

  • right to erasure, also known as the right to be forgotten. The broad principle underpinning this right is to enable an individual to request the deletion or removal of personal data where there is no compelling reason for its continued processing. In some circumstances this is not an absolute right;
  • right to restrict processing. You have the right to ‘block’ or suppress processing of personal data. Again this is not an absolute right and will depend on the circumstances and any other legal/statutory obligations we may have;
  • right to data portability;
  • right to object to processing based on legitimate interests or the performance of a task in the public interest/exercise of official authority (including profiling);
  • rights related to automated decision making including profiling.
