Storage of Personal Data
Personal data is kept securely in a locked filing cabinet within a secure building. Personal data is not stored on a computer, it is stored on a separate hard disc that is secured in a locked cupboard within a secured building when not in use.

Sharing of Personal Data
Personal information is not shared with other agencies without consent unless there are overriding concerns with regard to safeguarding and/or the welfare of the child that would legally and professionally require HCF Psychological Services Ltd to share information on a need to know basis. Under such circumstances, where possible and if appropriate, HCF Psychological Services Ltd would endeavour to discuss this and gain consent first.
