At Zeitgeist Hair, we take privacy seriously and this notice explains how we look after the personal information you give us or that we learn by having you as a client. We do not sell the information we collect, but use it to provide our services for you.

What information we collect about you

We collect information about you when you book an appointment for a service, buy a product, apply for a job, whether the contact is online, on paper, by email or over the phone. We consider you have provided consent for us to store personally identifying information and information about your services based on you receiving services from us.

The information you give us may include your name, address, email address, phone number, relevant history which may suggest a service should not go ahead or certain products may not be used (eg allergies, pregnancy, skin conditions) payment and transaction information. We also store notes with respect to services we undertake to ensure we maintain and exceed our level of service, for example colour formula codes or if you may need a longer appointment.

For clients under the age of 16, we will only keep and use their personal information with the consent of a parent, carer or guardian.

How information about you will be used

In law, we are allowed to use personal information, including sharing it outside the salon, only if we have proper reason to do so, for example:

•To fulfil a contract with you ie to provide the service or treatment you have requested and to communicate with you about appointments.

We will share your information with:

•Providers of the salon software system, Shortcuts.

We would like to send you information about products and services which may be of interest to you. We will not undertake email marketing without you first providing consent for us to do so. Some of our marketing campaigns are automated and use rules based on services and products purchased and information we collect from you. For example, we may send marketing campaigns related to your birthday, the fact we miss you (you have not visited for 6 months), or that you have referred a new client to us.

After visiting us we may send you an email asking you to rate our services and provide feedback and you may also receive a Mailchimp blog updating you with salon news.

Of course, you may opt out of receiving marketing material at any time. If you no longer wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, please contact zeitgeist11@gmail.com, or unsubscribe from our Mailchimp blog.
