Controlling your personal information:
We will not distribute, sell or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your explicit permission or are required by law to do so.

What Information May Be Collected and What This is Used For:
- When you visit this website, your IP address is anonymised before this is shared with Google Analytics (in order to monitor broad trends). This means that no data is collected which could identify an individual.
- If you choose to subscribe to the newsletter, then your email address is added to a secure list within the Dietitian UK MailChimp account so you can be sent a regular newsletter. Subscriber’s email addresses are used for no other purposes than those outlined above, and they are free to opt-out at any time. Verifiable consent is obtained using a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliant sign-up form which stores permission data in list export files (as advised by the MailChimp service). All subscribers are free to change their information or opt-out from my newsletter at any time.
- Service providers used to store and process information related to carrying out dietetic services for clients all have robust security procedures in place and are GDPR compliant. BDA and HCPC record-keeping guidelines are strictly adhered to for one to one consultations.
