A record of any correspondence or communication between you and Reflection Network. We process this information when we monitor our relationship with you and provide services to you, on the basis of our legitimate interest in providing our services and communicating with our partners and users.
Reflection Network will collect the above information from you directly but there may be occasions when we collect information from a third party.

Our current data retention policy is to delete or destroy (to the extent we are able to) personal data after a period of 7 years from the date you last used our services.
Sharing your information
In the case of therapeutic work, Reflection Network seeks a monthly consultation with an external qualified therapist. The consultation process is to ensure best clinical practice. In order to protect your privacy, the consultant will not know you personally or professionally. If it is necessary to refer to any of your information in discussion with the consultant, a pseudonym will be used.
In the case of therapeutic work, if Reflection Network becomes aware that your health is in jeopardy (provided we have your consent), we may share your contact information with an emergency healthcare service (e.g. Mental Health Crisis Team). If we have become aware of your intent to cause harm to another person/organisation, the law may require that we inform an authority without seeking your permission. In such a situation, the law may require that I share your personal information without your knowledge (known as: whistle- blowing).
