Our mission at Youthinmind is to provide world-class mental health assessment to our clients. Our clients mainly assess children and young adults. We consider client data as being exceptionally sensitive and take all reasonable measures to protect it.

In the GDPR context, Youthinmind consider ourselves as the Data Processor and our clients as the Data Controllers. From the very beginning of providing our online service in 2003 our mental health assessment scores were and remain anonymous to us. The mental health assessment scores we process cannot be identified to a natural person without the explicit and fully informed assistance of our clients.

How we secure, store and retain your data

We collect and store Personal Data purely for the purpose of providing the mental health scoring service to our clients. We store two kinds of Personal Data. These are client email address and client payment details. The email address serves means of accessing the service. These data are necessary for both identification of clients and functional operation of the Youthinmind business. We do not under any circumstance pass your data to third parties. Once the score for the individual assessment has been computed Youthinmind does not further process the assessment data or pass it to third parties. We do not use cookies.

Administrative and clinical data are stored indefinitely or until a client asks us to have their data removed. Should you have a query about the security or retention periods of your data, you are welcome to contact our Data Protection Officer on sdq.scoring@gmail.com
