Data Protection is governed by a set of rules called the General Data Protection Regulations which came into force on the 25th May 2018. These replace the Data Protection Act of 1998 and apply to all citizens of the EU. Under these regulations all individuals in the EU have rights regarding the way that businesses collect and use your data. You can find out more from the Information Commissioner’s Office here.
We all have rights regarding the way our data is processed. You can find out more about them here.
They include, among other things, the right to complain about the way your data is being processed. If you do have any complaints about the way that we are processing your data but we would appreciate it if you let us know first so we can have opportunity to rectify the situation. We are doing our best to keep your data safe and do the right thing.
What information do we collect and what is our reason?
We collect a variety of information to enable us to carry out the work we do.
We only work with adults so by providing your data you are confirming that you are over 18.

The information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:
- To personalize your experience. Your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs.

Information that is passed to Wild Leadership
We sometimes receive information from third parties who may be collecting data on our behalf. Examples include:
- Google Analaytics who manage our website usage information
- Wordfence Website security management
We look after this data in the same way as data that is given directly to us.
Disclosing your information
In order to provide the work you request and run our business in a lawful and professional manner we may need to share your information with selected third parties. These could include:
- Official authorities who may require access to the information (such as HMRC)
- Advisers who support my business with professional services such as accountants, insurers, lawyers and other business support services.
- Admin and IT service providers who work in Wild Leadership.
Where information is shared, a processor agreement will be put in place as appropriate to ensure proper protection of your data.
We don’t share your details with any third parties for marketing purposes and will never sell your data.
Transfer of Information outside of the European Economic Area
Where possible data will be kept on secure servers within the European Economic Area however for certain services it may be transferred out of the EEA. When this happens, and to maintain the continued protection of your data, we will ensure that either:
- The country to which the data is transferred has equivalent standards of data protection to those offered by GDPR as set out by the European Commission.
- There is a contract in place with the processor that ensures that data security is equivalent to the protection provided within the EU.
- Where the data is transferred to the US, the company providing the service is signed up to the Privacy Shield Agreement.
I hope goes without saying (though I’m saying it anyway!) that the security of your data is really important to me. I use best practices to ensure that data is stored safely and where I do need to share data with other people I make sure I share only what is absolutely necessary.
In the event of a data breach we have a Data Breach policy which sets out steps we will take, including informing you and the Information Commissioner of the breach.
