We will be clear and open with you about why we collect your personal information and how we use it. Where you have choices, we’ll explain them to you and respect your wishes

What information do we collect about you and how is it collected?
My Pharmacy collects personal information about you whenever you shop with us or use one of our services. For example:
If you register for one of our services, we request your personal details, including but not limited to your date of birth, postal and billing addresses, email addresses, phone numbers and title.
If you contact us, we may request that you provide personal data about yourself such as your name, phone number, email address or postal address. If you use our Prescription Dispensing and Delivery Service, we may ask you to give us some health-related information which will be held securely on our Pharmacy system.
We securely hold your personal information for as long as we have a professional or legal reason to do so and to fulfil our obligations to NHS, regulatory and similar bodies.
Our pharmacists and/or other suitably qualified individuals may have access to certain electronic NHS records which may contain information such as the medicines you take and any allergies you suffer from. If they need to view these records the member of staff will always ask for your permission and make a note of consent on your records.
Confirming your identity
We are required to carry out Identity checks for prescription and non-prescription medication. We use the information provided at checkout to carry out a automated mini credit check and this is clearly stated on checkout.
When identity cannot be sufficiently verified via the mini credit check, we maybe able to identify a person via NHS Spine. Failing this additional proof of identity will be required, such as providing a copy of a photo identity document (passport, driving licence, national identity card, 18+ card). Once identity has been established customers re-confirm their identity each time contact is made with the pharmacy.
Why is it being collected?
We will never use your personal information for marketing purposes.
We may use your personal information:
Post Purchase Reviews: when you buy goods and services from us we may follow it up with an enquiry about your experience of the product to help us gauge customer satisfaction. You are not obligated to leave reviews and ratings but this facility would enable you to get your views of the product across should you wish to do so.
Who will it be shared with?
We take the security of personal information seriously and we have security processes in place to ensure our paper and computer systems are protected against unauthorised use, loss and damage.
We will only share your personal information with other third parties where we have your consent or are required or permitted to do so by law.
When we share information with NHS bodies it will only be to fulfil our legal and professional obligations as a provider of pharmacy services. Confidential data will always be shared securely. Any health-related information you provide us will not be used in any other way.
