- contact information is collected in order to contact you in the unlikely event of us not being able to carry out the treatment you have booked, for example, where your therapist has been taken ill;
- contact information is kept in order to send you a reminder of your appointment. This helps to cut down missed appointments which are chargeable if insufficient notice is provided.
