I have written a privacy notice for my website and for my students, andhave ensured that the privacy notice includes all of the information includedin the ICO privacy notice checklist at:

5.Processes to recognise and respond toindividuals' requests to access their personal data.

All individuals will need to submit a written request to access theirpersonal data - either by email or by letter. I will provide that informationwithout delay and at least within one calendar month of receipt. I can extendthis period by a further two months for complex or numerous requests (in whichcase the individual will be informed and given an explanation).

I will identify the client using reasonable means, which because of thespecial category under which I process data, will be photographic ID.

I will keep a record of any requests to access personal data.

I will ensure that client information is kept up to date and will updateclient information as I am informed of any changes.

Once a year I will also have a review of all data.

Once a year I will review my client information and will place dormantclients in a separate file. This will be assessed each month to ensure thatdata that is no longer required to be kept under GDPR is destroyed securely.

8.Procedures to respond to an individual's requestto restrict the processing of their personal data.

As I only hold data in order to provide classes andthe correct training and care for my pupils. If I do receive a request I willrespond as quickly as possible, and within one calendar month, explainingclearly what I currently do with their data and that I will continue to holdtheir data but will ensure that it isn't processed.

9. Processes to allow individuals to move, copy or transfertheir personal data from one IT environment to another in a safe and secureway, without hindrance to usability.

Should clients wish their data to be copied ortransferred I would work with the client to ensure that this is done in a waythat was most appropriate for them - for example this could be an electronic summaryof treatment received and progress made, copies of individual treatmentrecords. I do not hold any treatment information electronically.

I will inform my clients of their right to object“at the point of first communication" and have clearly laid this out in myprivacy notice.

A personal data breach means a breach of security leading to thedestruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to,personal data.

I understand that I only have to notify the ICO of a breach where it islikely to result in a risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals.

”My daughter has been attending classes with Sarah-Jane for the last 10 years and has thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. The tuition throughout has been second to none and this has been reflected in outstanding exam results in every dance subject, distinctions across the board! In addition there have been excellent opportunities for her to participate in numerous competitions and dance performances through the school, which have all provided great stage experience. I can highly recommend The Lodge for any young person wanting to maximise their dance potential whilst making great friends at the same time.”
