It is very unlikely that your data will be shared, except there is a legal or ethical duty to disclose in order to comply with any legal obligation (e.g. terrorism alerts, money laundering, where there is reason to believe that someone, especially a child, is at risk of harm, or that there is a danger of harm to yourself or others, or if notes are subpoenaed by court). I will seek your permission where possible and practical unless the law may require that I share your personal information without your knowledge. Your data will never be sold on or used unethically.

Such requests can be refused but there must be a justifiable basis to do so. Small administration fee may apply depending on the nature and complexity of the request.
You have the right to request your personal information to be erased (unless it is the information that I have a legal obligation to retain and/or whilst it is needed for my competent practice).
