April 2019 - Recent fine issued to Bounty regarding sharing of personal data.

You may be aware of a recent fine issued Bounty, a pregnancy and parenting club, by the Information Commissioner for sharing information with third parties without making the public aware. You can find more information by clicking this LINK. The practice takes privacy and lawful use of information seriously and works hard to ensure that our service providers, partners and suppliers are trustworthy and compliant and although the practice is not directly affiliated with Bounty, we have looked into the matter to provide our patients with reassurance.
The Information Commissioner has recognised that the information sharing was an historic practice that ceased before recent changes in data protection law came into force. Bounty have confirmed that they have stopped selling details of members who sign up and that they have implemented robust data protection practices. They also have a privacy policy that now explicitly states they have stopped sharing data with those data brokerage firms and will never sell members information in the future. Finally, they have appointed an independent data expert who will assess Bounty's procedures annually and publish the findings on the Bounty website.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please do let us know.
