At William Thomas Gaughan we provide a range of hair services, which are inspired by our passion for excellence. Our desire is that your experience goes beyond your expectations.
To achieve our mission, we want to share our knowledge, products and promotional offers with you, that we think you’ll think you’ll be interested in based on information we collect from you. We only use that information where we have a proper legal basis for doing so.
We wrote this policy to help you understand what information we collect, how we use it and what choices you have about it. We’ve tried our best to explain things in a simple and clear way but if you have any questions, please contact us.
We collect information in a few different ways:
- When you give it to us or give us permission to obtain it
When you sign up for our mailing list, book an appointment or buy our products or service, you give us certain information voluntarily. This includes your name, email address, home address, telephone number, date of birth, medical history, your GP’s info and any other information you choose to give us. If you buy something, we also collect payment information and details of what you bought. If you buy something for someone else, we collect their name and delivery details and contact information.
If you link accounts from other third party services, we also get information from those accounts. The information we get from those services depends on your settings and their privacy policies, so please check what those are.

How long we keep your information
We keep your information only so long as we need it to provide a valuable service to you.
