We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:

   > If you are a client or prospective client, we will process your personal data to perform the contract we are about to enter into or            have entered into with you;

   > Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests; or

   > Where we need to comply with a legal obligation.

 

When we process your personal data, we are required to have a lawful basis for doing so. There are various different lawful bases on which we may rely, depending on what personal data we process and why.

 

Please see the below for more information on the lawful basis that we may rely on:

   > consent: where you have given us clear consent for us to process your personal data for a specific purpose;

   > contract: where our use of your personal data is necessary for a contract we have with you, or because you have asked us to take        specific steps before entering into a contract;

   > legal obligation: where our use of your personal data is necessary for us to comply with the law (not including contractual                    obligations); and

   > legitimate interest: where our use of your personal data is necessary for our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third          party (unless there is a good reason to protect your personal data which overrides our legitimate interests).

Where you engage us for coaching services, we will use the third-party platform Zoom to conduct sessions. For more information about how Zoom processes your personal data, please see the Zoom Privacy Policy.

When you use our Website, we use a simple analytics service called Visitor Analytics that measures traffic on our website and collects general information from our visitors.

Some of these third party recipients may be based outside the United Kingdom and European Economic Area — for further information including on how we safeguard your personal data when this occurs, see ‘Transfer of your information out of the UK and EEA’ below.

 

We will share personal data with law enforcement or other authorities if required by applicable law.

Where we do share your data with third parties, we will always ensure that such third parties are bound by a contract setting out how they are authorised to process data on our behalf and which contains provisions regarding data security and confidentiality, as required by applicable privacy laws.

Where we transfer your personal data outside of the UK and the EEA, we will only do so for the purposes mentioned in this Policy and any contract that we have entered into with you or the entity that you are representing.

 

Countries outside of the UK and the EEA do not have the same data protection laws as the UK and EEA. Therefore, when making such a transfer of data, we will always rely on a safeguard mechanism under the UK GDPR and/or the EU GDPR. We will only transfer your personal data to a country which the European Commission or the UK authorities have given a formal adequacy decision/regulation that confirms this third-country provides an adequate level of data protection similar to those which apply in the UK and EEA. If the third-country does not have an adequacy decision awarded to it, any transfer of your personal information will be subject to entering into the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses (the SCCs) which are designed to help safeguard your privacy rights and give you remedies in the unlikely event of a misuse of your personal data.

 

Transfers of personal data from the UK to the EEA shall be done on the basis of the adequacy decision awarded by the European Union to the UK pursuant to the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union on 28th June 2021.
