If you do not want your personal information to be collected, please do not submit it, however, you will be asked to pay for your treatment in advance and to attend to fill in a consultation form prior to your treatment. When you do provide personal information, Shakti Veda usually uses it to respond to your enquiry, or provide you access to specific account information, and to support its customer relationship with you.
Shakti Veda may store and process personal information and share it within the Shakti Veda group of parties to better understand your health needs and how Shakti Veda can improve its products and services; or Shakti Veda (or a third party on its behalf) may use Personal Information to contact you about a Shakti Veda offer in support of your business needs or to conduct online surveys to understand better its customers’ needs and profiles.
