We have not made any significant changes to the way we collect and process data about our users, since we were already compliant with the EU General Data Protection Regulation which came into force on May 25, 2018. However, we have updated this policy to provide you with more information about our processes.
1. Our Philosophy
Respect, integrity, and trust are the core of coaching, and vital to our Schools business personality, reputation and values. Since opening the doors to International Coach Academy in 2001, we’ve invested in growing and nurturing a connected coaching community with real friendships and real networks. We did this by never (ever) scraping contact information or buying mailing lists. Because for us, there’s no value in having someone on our mailing list or in our community who didn’t choose to be here. So, instead, our approach has been to create quality tools, resources and training and then open these up to our wider community and invite participation. As a student, graduate, or even just a visitor to International Coach Academy and www.CoachCampus.com, you can be assured that any information you share with us will be treated with respect and confidentiality. It will never be shared, sold, or distributed outside ICA.
