WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU?

Information you give us

We only collect information where you have provided this either as a direct client or as someone who has expressed an interest in our organisation.

The types of information that you may give us vary depending our relationship with you. For example, you may have provided your contact details to us at a networking event, through connecting on LinkedIn or from a personal meeting. If you are a client you may have also provided personal profiling, performance and development information.

The information you may give us could include categories such as, but not limited to, your name, work or personal address, e-mail address, phone number, gender. If we have worked with you we may hold psychometric data, notes from coaching sessions or development sessions.

Cookies are text files placed on your computer to collect standard internet log information and visitor behaviour information.  This information is used to track visitor use to the website and to compile statistical reports on website activity.

Information we receive from other sources 

We do not receive information from other sources, other than sometimes feedback from your employer, or manager as part of the development work we may be doing with yourself.

 

HOW DO WE USE THE INFORMATION ABOUT YOU?

  1. We only use your information to provide you with services you have engaged with, e.g. as a coachee or programme participant.
  2. We delete the personal data we hold which is linked directly to delivering our services, e.g. coaching notes, psychometric test results, development plans etc. after a suitable period of time.
  3. We may use your contact information to occasionally provide you with our latest blog and information about goods or services we feel may interest you. Each time you receive a communication from us, you always have the option to change your mind and unsubscribe.

Additionally, if at any time you wish us to stop using your information for any the above purposes, please contact us and we will do so as soon as it is reasonably possible.

 

HOW DO WE STORE AND KEEP INFORMATION SECURE?

We take measures to ensure the security of all information we hold, for example by restricting access, ensuring password protection on all digital data, removing identifying information and having secure storage facilities. We only partner with digital information services who comply with GDPR requirements. E.g. Psychometric houses, CRM providers, E-mailing services.

 

HOW DO WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION? 

We place great importance on confidentiality – it is critical to the type of work that we do. We will not sell or share any personally identifiable information collected by us to any third party.
