Features Beauty's role in data collection and processing
Under the GDPR, Features Beauty is classified as both the ‘data controller’ (the body responsible for determining the purpose and means of processing personal data) and the ‘data processor’ (the body responsible for processing personal data).
This notice refers to the collection and handling of personal data – namely information that could be used to identify an individual, such as name, email address and postal address.
What information do we collect and why?
Features Beauty collects information about its customers, potential customers and other interested parties for a number of reasons. This could refer to both individuals and organisations. Primarily we collect non-sensitive personal data such as names, email addresses, telephone numbers, occupation and health/medical information in order to:
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
Features Beauty only processes information when:
We have been given consent to do so. This consent will be given in the form of a positive ‘opt in’ from the data subject. Where we have a legitimate interest to do so, for example contacting you regarding an appointment. Or where a data subject has freely given their information for marketing purposes
Ensuring your personal data is safe and accurate
We ensure that your data is kept safely on our systems and have put measures in place to help guard against any accidental loss, destruction or damage of personal data.
We only collect and record data about individuals that is necessary for us to perform treatments or marketing activity and nothing more.

Features Beauty will never share its customers or potential customer’s data with any other businesses, individuals outside of our company or any third parties except to help prevent fraud, or if required to do so by law.
