We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:

- provide podiatry treatment relevant to your needs and medical history.
- if it is necessary for our legitimate interests and these are not overridden by your own rights and interests
- where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.
In order to process personal data, we must have a lawful reason (sometimes called a lawful basis). We always ensure that this is the case, and we set out our lawful bases below – but please note that more than one may apply at any given time: for example, if we inform you of changes to our privacy notice, we may process your personal data on the ground of complying with law and on the ground of legitimate interests.
We will use your personal data only for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we fairly consider that we need it for another reason that is compatible with the original purpose.
Please contact us if you would like more information on this, and on situations in which more than one lawful basis applies.
If you book an appointment with us and become a registered client we will process your personal data for the following purposes, on the legal basis that it is necessary for us to provide our products and services to you:
- to enable us to carry out our services
- to identify you
- to respond to your inquiries
- to allow you to register as a client
- to the extent necessary to provide you with information you have requested in relation to our products and services before you decide to purchase them
- to provide our products and services, including enabling them to be delivered to you and contacting you about your appointment or ordered products (for example, reminding you of an upcoming appointment, or informing you when bespoke orthotics are ready for collection)
- to carry out billing and administration activities, including taking payment or making refunds and credits
- to send you special offers or promotional materials via email (where consent has been given for this)
- sharing clinical findings with other health professionals as part of your ongoing treatment (this will only be with your explicit consent).
Of course, you are not obliged to provide us with any of this information, but if you chose not to, we may be unable to provide the product or service that you have requested.
Legitimate Business Interests
We process your personal information for our legitimate business purposes, which include the following:
- to conduct and manage our business

- to allow you to review a service or product you have purchased
- to analyse, improve and update our services for the benefit of our customers
- to deal with complaints
- where you have registered your details with us, to let you know about our products, services, promotions or events that we consider may be of interest to you (and which may be tailored to your interests as construed from your purchase history). We do this only where you have provided us with a preferred means of contact for this purpose. We carry out this processing on the legal basis that we have a legitimate interest in marketing our products and services, and only to the extent that we are permitted to do so by applicable direct marketing laws. You can opt out of receiving this information by contacting us as set out in Section 1 above.
Whenever we process your personal data for these purposes, we ensure that your interests, rights and freedoms are carefully considered.
Compliance with laws
As a healthcare provider we may process your personal data in order to comply with applicable laws (for example, recording and storing health related data)
If you have never purchased a service or product from us or have not purchased from us for a long time but have given us your explicit consent to hear from us about our products, services, promotions or events that we consider may be of interest to you, we will contact you by post or email (according to the contact preference you have provided).

6. Do you have to provide personal data – and, if so, why?
To form a contract with you, we will need some or all of the personal data described above so that we can perform that contract or the steps that lead up to it: this is set out above in this notice. You have the right to refuse us this information, but failure to do so could mean we are unable to inform you of changes to your appointments or notify you when ordered products have arrived in stock. You will then be liable for the cost of these services or products.
If you sign up to our mailing list, you will have to provide certain personal data. Of course, you may decide to stop receiving our mailings at any time.
