Storing your information

Your records are stored according to the following methods:

  • on paper, in locked filing cabinets;

  • electronically (on ‘cloud’ servers), using Microsoft One Note. This provider has given me its assurance that it is fully compliant with the General Data Protection Regulations. Access to this data is password-protected, and the passwords are changed regularly;

  • on my office computer, which is password-protected, backed up regularly and kept in a safe place.

Your rights under GDPR 


As someone who resides in the European Union, you are entitled to exercise certain rights that you are given under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). 

Any information or data that you choose to provide me will be kept with The Period Acupuncturist until one of these happens:

(1) you ask The Period Acupuncturist to DELETE the information and/or data;

(2) [The Period Acupuncturist decides to STOP USING the existing data processors, or

(3) The Period Acupuncturist decides that the cost of retaining the data outweighs the value in retaining it.  


As a consumer and/or visitor on my Site who is located in the European Union region, you have the right to request access to the data that The Period Acupuncturist collected on you and stores it. 

You are within your rights to demand to know exactly what data and information The Period Acupuncturist has collected on you. Keep in mind that some parts of this data were provided by you personally, while others were gathered through cookies and pixels. 

You have the right to withdraw consent to the data that you previously gave me to collect and process. The right to withdraw consent applies to any future processing of that data. However, any data that has been collected and processed previously based on valid consent is lawful and not subject to liability based on any legal grounds. 

You also have the right to request the erasure of your data and all your information from The Period Acupuncturist’s data storage. Once you request that your data be erased from The Period Acupuncturist’s databases, I have thirty (30) days to comply with your request. If it’s impossible to comply within 30 days, then The Period Acupuncturist will respond to the Visitor’s request and let them know about the issue and also give them a reasonable time as to when their request for deletion will be honoured. 

Aside from rights such as a request to access, request to delete, and rectify, an EU user also has the right to place restrictions on the data processing itself. This means a user can limit certain things that The Period Acupuncturist can and cannot do with their data. You can choose to limit the transfer of your data to third-party businesses (unless it’s essential for The Period Acupuncturist’s basic functions). 

You further have the right to file a complaint with a supervisory authority that oversees and handles issues related to the GDPR.


Lastly, it’s The Period Acupuncturist’s duty to inform you that I only require information that is reasonably necessary to enter into a contract with you. I do not collect any unnecessary data, and any information I acquire is used for legitimate business purposes, such as growing and scaling my business or being able to provide satisfactory customer service to you and other users.

Information Collected from You

  1. I need to collect personal information about your health in order to provide you with the best possible treatment. Your requesting treatment and our agreement to provide that care constitutes a contract.  You can refuse to provide the information, but if you were to do so I would not be able to provide treatment.

  2. I have a legitimate interest in collecting that information because without it I can't do my job effectively and safely.

  3. I think it is important that I can contact you in order to confirm your appointments or to update you on matters relating to your medical care. This is in your legitimate interest.

  4. Provided I have your consent, I may occasionally send you clinic updates. You may withdraw this consent at any time, just let me know by email:

  5. I use the information I collect from you to send you targeted marketing and promotional communications.
