Autism Oxford UK is a registered Limited company and is registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) as required by law. By the nature of the services we offer, we will gather personal information which is essential to either the assessment or support we provide or information about the services we are working with. We may need to contact third parties and share personal identifiable data such as your name and address, if there is a safeguarding concern relating to a risk to serious harm or life to yourself or others, but information is shared on a ‘need to know basis’ and limited. All information we store about you will be treated confidentially.
The records we hold are subject to General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR); 2018. You have the right to request that we delete your data, however we cannot guarantee that we will always be able to do this due to professional requirements. We will always be happy to discuss any concerns you have with you. You also have the right under GDPR to access personal data that we hold about you and make a subject to access request to obtain information. If you wish to do this you will need to provide at least 30 days’ notice, identification, and your request in writing.
For some of our diagnostic assessments we use video recording. We will always seek your consent prior to the assessment about this, and you can withdraw your consent at any time. We do not share these recordings as they are for diagnostic purposes only. We sometimes use recordings to complete internal training, however we will always seek consent on our consent form before doing this. These recordings are not available to be shared with you after, due to the licensing requirements of some of the assessment tools we use and also the clinician’s privacy rights as well.
We do not share any personal information with third parties for marketing purposes and you will only be sent marketing information from ourselves, if you have proactively subscribed to our mail lists, which you are able to unsubscribe to at any time.
