  • the processing is necessary in order for us to comply with our legal obligations (such as compliance with legislation);
  • the processing is necessary for the pursuit of our legitimate business interests including that of the delivery of our services (for example, we have been introduced to you to potentially provide coaching services to you or your organization);

What we do with that information?

We use your contact details to:

  • Sending requests for your thoughts on key subjects such as our recommended book list and then sending through the collated responses
  • Scheduling meetings
  • Billing purposes
  • To share news about any events we are organising or participating in
  • Performing analytics – such as trends and coach success rates.

TXG’s relationship with you:

TXG acts as an intermediary, and so we have set out below specifically how we share data between our clients/coachees and our associate coaches, both of whom are third parties.

Associate coaches – With potential coaching and consulting opportunities, we may wish to share your contact details with a potential client, but we will always request your permission before sharing any personal information.

Clients/coachees – Our coaches are required to keep a record of the number of hours they have coached and the individuals they have worked with each year and your name, company and email address are kept indefinitely but this information is only ever shared with the professional body to ensure the coach is maintaining the standards necessary for professional registration.

In addition, each coach will often keep notes of individual coaching conversations taken during and post a session.   These notes may be held on paper and/or electronically.  Our associates keep your data individually – this is not shared with anyone else at TXG without your express permission.  Our associate coaches and consultants are all bound to adhere to this Privacy Policy as a condition of working with us.

Session notes may be kept for a maximum period of four years from the completion of the coaching assignment and then archived for a maximum of six years before being destroyed.  You can request a copy of your data as stipulated by the legislation.

Who else may have access to your Personal Information?

On occasion, in addition to the specific sharing set out above, we may need to share your Personal Information with third parties.  We will only share Personal Information where we are legally permitted to do so.

Where you supply us with Personal Information as a client or an associate coach, we will assume, unless you instruct us otherwise in writing, that we can disclose your Personal Information in such manner as we believe is reasonably necessary to provide our services (including as described in this Policy), or as is required under applicable law. For example, we may pass your Personal Information to third parties such as:

  • professional regulatory bodies
  • providers who administer psychometric tests where that is appropriate for a coaching relationship.  We will provide contact details to those providers only for the purpose of initiating the service.  Some of these providers may be outside the EU and we endeavour to ensure they comply with the relevant data protection legislation
  • disclosures required by law or regulation: in certain circumstances, please note that we may be required to disclose Personal Information under applicable law or regulation, including to law enforcement agencies or in connection with proposed or actual legal proceedings
  • credit-checking agencies for credit control reasons
  • events: we may need to pass on your Personal Information (e.g. name, company, occupation) to a third party in connection with management of an event, in which case the details will only be used by the third party for that specific purpose
  • business partners, service providers and other affiliated third parties: to enable us to provide our services to you, we may need to share your Personal Information with our business partners (including professional advisers such as accountants or auditors), or external service providers. Our arrangements with external service providers currently cover the provision of support services including IT, events management, document production, business research, accounting, administration, bookkeeping and secretarial services.

How we hold your data: Confidentiality & Security

TXG works with Salesforce to keep and maintain the personal information we hold.   Salesforce are based outside the EU but comply with all the privacy and security provisions required by the GDPR.

TXG treats the information you provide us with as confidential and we do not sell any personal data on to third parties and we only share any personal information for legitimate business reasons.

TXG protects your information through administrative measures from all our staff both electronically and physically, including electronic cyber security systems such as firewalls on all of our electronic equipment.

The conditions where we cannot maintain confidentiality is where we are become aware of illegal activity or where the physical or mental health of the coachee or others is, in our judgement, seriously at risk.

Links to other websites

The TXG website may link to other, unaffiliated third-party websites.  Please note that TXG is not, and cannot, control or be responsible for the content or privacy and confidentiality practices of any third-party websites.  You must always carefully review the privacy and confidentiality policy of any third-party website that you may visit in order to understand how the operators of that website may collect, store and use your Personal Information.
