At One to One Homecare Ltd we take privacy very seriously and are currently updating all our records and processes to ensure that we are fully meeting the data protection standards introduced by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on 25 May 2018.
We are registered as data processors with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

What personal data we collect and why we collect it
The categories of information that we collect, hold and may share include:
- Personal information (such as name, address, date of birth)
- Characteristics (such as ethnicity, language, nationality, country of birth).
The lawful basis on which we use this information
We collect and use information under the following lawful bases established by the GDPR.
- Legitimate interests: the processing involves using your data in ways you would reasonably expect and which have a minimal privacy impact.
- Legal obligation: the processing is necessary for us to comply with the law (submitting data to Government Departments for example).

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
We keep contact form submissions for a certain period for customer service purposes, but we do not use the information submitted through them for marketing purposes.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

We may share information with:

Why we share information
We do not share information with anyone without your consent unless the law and our policies allow us to do so.
We are required to share certain data with official bodies (such as HMRC or the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP)) on a statutory basis.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

You also have the right to:
- object to processing of personal data that is likely to cause, or is causing, damage or distress
- prevent processing for the purpose of direct marketing
- object to decisions being taken by automated means and
- in certain circumstances, have inaccurate personal data rectified, blocked, erased or destroyed.
If you have a concern about the way we are collecting or using your personal data, we request that you raise your concern with the (Registered Branch Manager) in the first instance. This does not affect your right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) (ico.org.uk).
