What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When you leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you are a coaching client: I will collect data about you in the form of your name, email address, Skype account name, home address, and telephone number. The effective collection of these details enables me to provide a cohesive service and to maintain a professional approach.

To improve this website I continually strive to improve our services based on the information and feedback we receive from you. Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:

  • To personalise your experience and improve the service to meet individual needs.
  • To promote a promotion, a survey or give you access to information or access to a quiz and offer feedback.
  • To send periodic emails, process your order and give updates to services and any purchase.
  • To process transactions. Your information, whether public or private, will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company for any reason whatsoever, without your consent, other than for the express purpose of delivering the purchased product or service requested.

Contact forms

If you signed up to my mailing list via the contact form on my website or Facebook, your email address and name will be stored in an email system I use called Mailer Lite. I will use this information to contact you via Mailer Lite for the purposes of sending you emails and to keep you updated through newsletters and any requests that you have made regarding service provision should you consent to this. I will never share any data with a third party without your consent. If you should purchase any services details will be given of any sharing of data due to a financial transaction.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.

After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers. I do not transfer, sell or trade your personally identifiable information companies. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. I may also receive data from third parties, such as Google Analytics (analytics.google.com) providers like Google based outside the EU, advertising networks such as Facebook based outside the EU, or providers of Payment services such as Paypal, both based outside the EU.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. You can unsubscribe from any email update service by emailing: karen@kjratcliffeconsultancy.com

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
