What to with your document

This section tells you what to do with your privacy notice and your 'just-in-time' notices.

Privacy notice

Copy this to your website on the page at info@therapy-box.co.uk, and add a link to it on every page of your website.

'Just-in-time' notices

These are short notices that you put on your website at the point that you ask for information. They'll refer website users to your full privacy notice. You don't have to use these, but the Information Commissioner's Office recommend this technique.

Because the user's consent is required for at least some of the information you'll request, you'll need to add some kind of mechanism for the user to give consent when the user sees the relevant notices. You should also make it very clear how the user can withdraw consent and ask for all personal information about them to be deleted.

 

Copy the text below the 'Privacy notice about non-essential information' into an appropriate space (e.g. pop-up box) that should appear as soon as the website is opened and before the user is asked to provide information that's not essential.
