WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU
We collect information about you when you book an appointment for a service or treatment, visit the salon for a service or treatment, buy a product or apply for a job, whether contact is online, on paper, by email or over the phone. The information you give us may include your name, address, email address, phone number, relevant history which may suggest that a service or treatment should not go ahead or certain products should not be used (eg allergies, pregnancy, skin conditions), payment and transaction information, IP address and CVs. For clients under the age of 16, we will only keep and use their personal information with the consent of a parent, carer or guardian.
HOW INFORMATION ABOUT YOU WILL BE USED
In law, we are allowed to use personal information, including sharing it outside the salon, only if we have a proper reason to do so, for example:
• To fulfil a contract with you ie to provide the service or treatment you have requested and to communicate with you about your appointments
• When it is in our legitimate interest ie there is a business or commercial reason to do so, unless this is outweighed by your rights or interests
• When you consent to it: we will always ask for your consent to hold and use health and medical information. We will therefore share your information with
• Providers of our salon software systems [ Zenoti & Fresha]
• Mailing houses [Wix & Zenoti / Fresha , we do not use a different company for email communications]
• Suppliers of our website [ Wix ] We have rigorous data protection and security policies in place with all our suppliers.
Some of the people working in our salon are self-employed. Where software systems and reception facilities are shared, our self-employed colleagues will have access to your information. If you communicate with staff members outside of the salon using personal details you will not be covered under the salons policies. We will not share your information with any other third party without your consent except to help prevent fraud, or if required to do so by law.
We would like to send you information about products and services which may be of interest to you. We will ask for your consent to receive marketing information. If you have consented to receiving marketing, you may opt out at a later date. You have the right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes or giving your information to third party suppliers of products or services. If you no longer wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, please contact Salon Hår directly or log in to your account on Zenoti or Fresha to opt out.
HOW LONG YOUR INFORMATION WILL BE KEPT FOR
Unless you request otherwise, we will keep your information to contact you for a maximum of 2 years from your last visit to the salon. After this time we will delete all your personal information, except for your name, relevant client history (eg allergy test records which we keep for 6 years) and financial transactions (which we are obliged to keep for 6 years). Information about unsuccessful job applicants will be deleted after four months. ( six months if we have a period of government enforced lockdown )
WHERE YOUR INFORMATION IS KEPT
Your information is stored within the European Economic Area on secure servers provided by Zenoti & Fresha and Wix. Any payment transactions are encrypted. Sending information via the internet is not completely secure, although we will do our best to protect your information and prevent unauthorised access. ( We use Square for in salon payments and Zenoti payments for online payments and card capture)
ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION AND CORRECTION
You have the right to request a copy of the personal information that we hold about you. This will normally be free, unless we consider the request to be unfounded or excessive, in which case we may charge a fee to cover our administration costs. If you would like a copy of some or all of your personal information, please contact Salon Hår. We want to make sure that your personal information is accurate and up-to-date. You may ask us to correct or remove information you think is inaccurate. You have the right to ask us to object to our use of your personal information, or to ask us to delete, remove or stop using your personal information if there is no need for us to keep it.

We will listen to your feedback and ask all the necessary questions to understand your complaint and offer a solution . If you have already left the salon, we ask that you do not go to another salon as we have the legal right to see exactly what the service or treatment you have received from us , looks like.
