When you visit my Website, I automatically collect the following types of personal information:

  1. Technical information, including the internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your device to the internet, browser type and version, time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions and operating systems and platforms.

Why am I processing your data?  

For me to provide you with coaching services Arrow Coaching may wish to collect personal data as outlined below.  My reason (lawful reason) for processing your data under the GDPR is:

Legal basis –   I intend to tell you why I am asking for the information and what I intend to do with it. You will have the option of not providing the information, in which case you may still be able to access other parts of this Website, although you may not be able to access certain services.  Data will not be held for longer than is necessary. General client details will be held while you are availing of my services and will be retained for a period of 3 years after the relationship is terminated. The information I request about you may also be used to verify your identity, send you information or contact you in relation to an Arrow Coaching service that you are using or that I believe may be of interest to you after you have chosen to ‘opt in’ to, if appropriate.

Sharing information with third parties

If I wish to pass your sensitive personal data onto a third party I will only do so once I have obtained your explicit consent, unless I am legally required to do otherwise. The exception to this, as outlined in the Arrow Coaching agreement, is if maintaining confidentiality during the time you use my services is likely to endanger you, me or a third party.

Data security

Arrow Coaching’s intent is to strictly protect the security of your personal information; honour your choice for its intended use; and carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access or disclosure, alteration or destruction.

However, you should always take into consideration that the internet is an open forum and that data may flow across networks with little or no security measures, and therefore such information may be accessed by people other than those you intended to access it.  In any event, I am committed to ensuring that the information I collect, and use is appropriate for this purpose, and does not constitute an invasion of your privacy.

How will Arrow Coaching use the personal data it collects about you?

Arrow Coaching will process (collect, store and use) the information you provide in a manner compatible with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). I will endeavour to keep your information accurate and up to date, and not keep it for longer than is necessary.
