How Does Harrods Use The Wellness Clinic Client Data?
Harrods Ltd uses personal information such as your name and contact details for the following reasons:
- To contact you about your booking;
- To contact you with any pre-treatment information or aftercare information; and where you have consented
- To contact you with exciting information about the latest Harrods products, events and services
- In an emergency, Harrods will contact the person you provide as an emergency contact
How Will The Practitioners Within The Wellness Clinic Use Client Data?
Harrods will only share your personal data with the practitioner that you have booked to receive treatment from. Full details of how your practitioner will use your personal data can be found within your Registration Form, which you will complete at your first visit to The Wellness Clinic.
Generally, The Wellness Clinic practitioners will use your personal data for one or more of the following reasons:
- To ensure that you are in a fit state of health to receive your chosen treatment or service
- To craft a bespoke treatment for you
- To contact you about your treatment; and where photographs or video footage is taken
- To demonstrate the success of a treatment or programme plan
Access within this system is restricted so that only Harrods and your chosen treatment provider will be able to see your personal data. Should you choose to visit another treatment provider, your data will not be shared with any additional treatment providers unless you give explicit consent.
In some instances it may be necessary for your practitioner to send your personal data outside of The Wellness Clinic, this is the case in instances where your treatment involves a DNA analysis. Where this is the case, Harrods will take steps to ensure that instead of your name, an anonymous or pseudo-anonymous marker is used such as a unique ID.
Photographs Or Videos Taken Within The Wellness Clinic
Harrods is proud to also offer clients the opportunity to experience a 3D image camera. The 3D camera will give you the opportunity to see the effects of The Wellness Clinic treatment/s that you have received in high definition 3D imagery. It is entirely your own decision as to whether you wish to experience the 3D Camera.
For some of the treatments offered within The Wellness Clinic, before and after photographs are mandatory. This is to demonstrate evidence of an effective treatment in case you later decide to contest the success of any treatment you receive. If photographs are mandatory, your treatment provider will make this clear prior to any photographs being taken.
Unless you give your explicit consent for other uses, all photographs taken of you within The Wellness Clinic will only be used to demonstrate the effect of your treatment.
Louise Parker offers clients the opportunity to see and evaluate their own performance during a workout by recording client workouts. Clients can access their own videos from home to help with improving their technique. This is completely optional dependent on your preferences.
