HOW INFORMATION ABOUT YOU WILL BE USED

WHERE YOUR INFORMATION IS KEPT
The only people to see your details are, the therapist/stylist performing the treatment, Victoria Rose team members who add your contact details on to the system and the data base company we use, called Shedul, to hold the information as noted above.
