What is considered "personal data"?
Under the GDPR, personal data is any information about a specific person. This broad definition includes not only traditional personal data—e.g., dates of birth, names, physical addresses, email addresses—but location data, biometric data, financial information, and much more.
What information is being collected?
I collect information that can be used to identify you personally, including your name, phone number, Skype or Zoom ID, and email address. I may also request your mailing address, and collect additional data in the form of intake questionnaires and pre session reminders.
who is collecting this information and why?
I collect personal information from you prior to the beginning of any coaching agreement, and throughout our coaching relationship. You are always free to choose if, and when to provide any information to me, though certain products and services may not be possible to deliver without it.
I will ask you for your name and email address when submitting a query via my 'contact form', and for your email address when signing up for my newsletter, Notes on Living What Matters. I use Mail Chimp for maintaining my mailing list and sending newsletters.
I will collect information from you through questionnaires submitted through Acuity, my scheduling platform.
Payment for services is processed through Stripe.
How will my information be used?
I use personal information to provide coaching services, personalize content, conduct newsletter mailings and contact you with information that I hope will be of interest to you.
Do you share my INFORMATION?
I do not sell or otherwise provide the information I collect from you to outside third parties. I do however use third party services which are subject to their own privacy and cookies policies. Below are the service providers I use and links to their privacy policies.

What additional security safeguards are in place?
This website uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, an industry standard encryption tool that provides security while transmitting information over the Internet. I also endeavor to follow industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to me, both during transmission and once I receive it. This extends to the safeguards which are in place for virtual coaching sessions conducted on Zoom. Zoom's security and privacy policies are available here. While I strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, 100% security with electronically-transmitted information is not possible.
