However, you can request that we delete this information stored on the website, at any time.

If you do become a coaching client of S Owen, the personal details you provided, namely the name, email address and phone number you provided, will be securely stored on a digital spreadsheet document for account management as you are then a client of S Owen’s services and, therefore, proper records must be kept. Other personal details you provide, such as coaching forms completed, will also be securely stored in a digital format for legal and safeguarding reasons. Any notes S Owen writes about your case for best practice as a coach to ensure she does her best to help you to achieve your coaching goals, will also be logged and securely stored in a digital format for performance, legal and safeguarding reasons.

If you do not become a coaching client of S Owen, your data will be deleted from the website and from any securely stored digital spreadsheets after a period of three months unless you are deemed to be behaving in a way that suggests you are trying to mislead or defraud S Owen in an attempt to further your own business, or for any other reasons, in which case your data may be retained for legal and safeguarding reasons, indefinitely.
You can provide updated personal details at any time to ensure the details we hold for you are correct and up to date and we will promptly update our records accordingly.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements
Strict confidentiality is maintained at all times, except if and when S Owen is expected to or asked to break such confidentiality in line with lawful UK regulations and those regulations laid out in the British Psychological Society’s Code of Ethics and Conduct document and the Association for Coaching’s Code of Ethics and Good Practice document.
As a coaching client, please be aware of the limitations of maintaining confidentiality, with specific reference to: (a) potentially conflicting or supervening legal and ethical obligations; (b) the likelihood that consultation with colleagues may occur in order to enhance the effectiveness of service provision, but during which your personal identity will still remain confidential unless absolutely necessary to divulge this information in line with this or other legal obligations; and (c) the possibility that third parties such as translators or family members may assist in ensuring that the activity concerned is not compromised by a lack of communication.
Breaches of confidentiality will be restricted to those exceptional circumstances under which there appears sufficient evidence to raise serious concern about: (a) the safety of clients; (b) the safety of other persons who may be endangered by the client’s behaviour; or (c) the health, welfare or safety of children or vulnerable adults.
