The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new law about the way personal data is processed in the UK. It applies to everyone who processes data as part of their business, and requires transparency about how your information is processed.
Under GDPR, you have the right to be forgotten, which means that you can ask for your information held about you to be deleted.

My personal mobile phone is used for the following:

My mobile phone is password and fingerprint protected and I am the only person whom has access.
My emails are sent through Google mail from a password protected computer.
Clients initials only are used for the following:

Your information will never be used for marketing or market research purposes and will not be shared with any third party.
Examples of people/organisations that I will share your data (with your prior approval) are:
