Privacy Policy

This is The Como Centre’s privacy policy, which explains how we use any personal information we collect about you and why we collect it.

What Information Do We Need?

Contact Details: We need your contact details, your name, phone number, address, postcode and email address.

Qualifications: We need information on your qualifications if you are enrolling on an accredited course with us.

Health: We may also need information about your age and health if you are having a treatment/consultation with us.

Consultations for Models: We need information about your age and health if you have agreed to be a model for one of our students during training.

Why Do We Need It, How Will We Use It and How Long Will We Retain It?

We need all the details above in order to ensure that it is safe for us to provide the service or treatments you may ask for and also for insurance purposes. We will store your information for 7-years after the date of your treatment, or for 7-years after you have reached the age of 18 if you are/were under 18 when your treatment took place. Our first lawful basis for processing this personal information is ‘contract’, this means that we have a legal reason to ask you for your data because we need it for contractual reasons. You do not have to share your personal data with us, but if you do not we cannot offer you a service or treatment with The Como Centre. You must fulfil your side of the contract (share your personal information) in order for us to fulfil ours (provide the service or carry out treatment).
Our second lawful basis is ‘consent’, which means that we are able to contact you to provide information we think you may be interested in.
