How your information will be used
We will only use the information that you share with us to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:
- Internal record keeping.
- We may use the information to improve our products and services
- We may periodically send promotional emails about new products, special offers or other information which we think you may find interesting using the email address which you have provided.

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and The Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA18) you have a number of rights regarding your personal data. You have the right to:
a) be informed what we do with your data
- Through this Notice (and similar notices) we are explaining in simple language what we will use the data collected from you and about you, for. This is known as a ‘Fair Processing Notice’.
- We will use the data we hold on you to understand your needs and provide you with a better service (please see how your information will be used).
b) see what data we hold on you
- You have a right to know what data we hold on you, and confirmation that we are processing it. This will be provided to you on request, within one month, free of charge. If you would like a copy of the information held on you please write to Tunstall Healthcare Group Ltd, Whitley Lodge, Whitley Bridge, Yorkshire, DN14 0HR or email email@example.com.
c) correct your data if it is inaccurate
- We have an obligation to ensure the data we hold on you is accurate. To this end, we may periodically ask you to confirm certain details, for instance, telephone number, address, etc. If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please write to or email us as soon as possible, at the above address. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.
- In certain circumstances a self-service portal may be provided for you to access your information and update your information.
- We must complete any rectifications within one month and will not charge you for this.
- In addition, we will inform any third parties with which we have shared your data that a correction is required and will inform you who those third parties are.
d) erase your data in certain circumstances
- Where data is not required for processing, or where you withdraw consent, or object to processing where there is no legitimate reason for us to hold the data, you may ask for that data to be erased.
- You may ‘Request to have Personal Data Erased’ by writing to Tunstall Healthcare Group Ltd, Whitley Lodge, Whitley Bridge, Yorkshire, DN14 0HR or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
- This is not an absolute right. Where we are required to retain the data for a lawful reason (typically where there has been a contractual arrangement and information must be retained to comply with taxation laws), then we will reject the request to erase data, and explain our reasons.
- Where we can accept your request for erasure, the data in question will be deleted within one month and we will make no charge for this. Exceptionally, if the request is complex, we may require longer to achieve this and will inform you that this will be the case. This extension period will not exceed two months in total.
e) restrict processing of your data
- You may ask us to restrict further processing of your data but allow it to be retained in our systems. This could enable you to ask us, for example, to suspend the processing of personal information about you if you want to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it. Where allowed by law, we will comply with this.
f) have your data sent to another party at your request
- You may ask for your data to be sent to another party. We will provide this in a structured machine-readable format (typically CSV, but in another open format should that be more suitable). We will provide this within one month and will not charge for the provision.
g) object to our processing
- You may object to our processing of your data, if your objection is based on one of the following three reasons:
- That the processing is based on the legitimate interests of the Company and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this basis.
- That your data is being used for direct marketing
- That your data is being used for scientific research and statistical analysis
h) be informed of any automated decision making and profiling we might use
- We do not use your personal data to perform any automated decision making or profiling. (This means making a decision or evaluating certain things about an individual solely by automated means without any human involvement.) Should the Company decide to use any such mechanisms in the future, we will inform you about the nature of the processing, provide a simple method for you to request human intervention or challenge a decision, and we will perform regular checks to ensure the system is working as intended.
How to withdraw consent
If you have provided consent for the processing of some elements of your personal data you have the right (in certain circumstances) to withdraw that consent at any time. This will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before your consent was withdrawn. To withdraw consent for the processing of specific data, you may be able to withdraw consent via the same system with which you originally provided it, or you may write to Tunstall Healthcare Group Ltd, Whitley Lodge, Whitley Bridge, Yorkshire, DN14 0HR or email email@example.com.
You have the right to lodge a complaint to the relevant Supervisory Authority, if you believe that we have not complied with the requirements of the GDPR or DPA18 regarding your personal data. In the UK the relevant Supervisory Authority is the Information Commissioner’s Office.
Tunstall Healthcare Group is the controller and processor of data for the purposes of the DPA18 and GDPR.
