1. How we use your personal data


We are committed to protecting your personal data.


The only data we collect from you is that submitted by you for the coaching assignments, and session notes, which are anonymised. 


We will use your non-sensitive personal data to (i) register you as a new client, (ii) manage payment, (iii) collect and recover monies owed to us, (iv) manage our relationship with you, (v) send you details of our goods and services, vi) submit evidence to the ICF of our coaching practice for credentialing assessment.  


Our legal grounds for processing your data in relation to points (i) to (iv) above are for performance of a contract with you, in relation to points (iii) and (v) above are for our legitimate interests to develop our products/services, to grow our business and to recover monies owed, and in relation to point (vi) above is in order to protect the vital interests of you or another natural person.


We will not share your details with third parties for marketing purposes except with your express and written consent. 


2. Disclosure of your personal data

We may have to share your personal data with (i) service providers who provide IT and system administration support, (ii) professional advisors including lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers (iii) HMRC and other regulatory authorities and (iv) professional bodies and/or a coach supervisor for the purposes of discussing our work as part of our coaches’ ongoing professional development.  (v) third parties to whom we sell, transfer or merge parts of our business or our assets.



We require all third parties to whom we transfer personal data to respect the security of such data, and to treat it in accordance with the law. They are only allowed to process your personal data on our instructions. 


3. International transfers

Some of our third-party providers are businesses outside of the EEA in countries which do not always offer the same levels of protection for your personal data. We do our best to ensure a similar degree of security by ensuring that contracts, code of conduct or certification are in place which give your personal data the same protection it has within Europe. If we are not able to do so, we will request your explicit consent to any transfer of data, and you can withdraw this consent at any time.


4. Data security

We have put in place security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. We also limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know such data. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and are subject to a duty of confidentiality. We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breaches and will notify you and any applicable regulator where we are legally required to do so.  In certain circumstances you can ask us to delete your data. See the section entitled ‘your rights’ below for more information.


5. De-Identification


We anonymise your personal data in association with client session notes whether this relates to whole team, groups or one-to-one clients.


We anonymise your personal data in conversations for professional development with Supervisors on a one-to-one basis and in group settings.  In conversations with prospective clients we anonymise your personal data unless expressly agreed to the contrary in advance.


We anonymise your personal data (so that you can no longer be identified from such data) for impact and return on investment case studies, evaluation, research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.


6. Data retention

We will only keep your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it. We may retain your data to satisfy any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements, for example we need to keep certain information about you for 6 years after you cease to be a client for tax purposes.


You have the right to ask us to delete the personal data we hold about you in certain circumstances. See section 6 below.
