Client Services: Information for Service Provision and Enquiries
When we work together, I will ask you to provide personal information to enable me to provide the agreed service and to fulfill legal, ethical, and regulatory obligations.
The personal data collected typically includes contact details such as full name, email, telephone number/s, address, age, and current employer when applicable.
In addition to the personal details, I will ask you to sign an agreement regarding the proposed work. This will include a confidentiality agreement so that you know what to expect.
You will receive details about how to pay for your services.
You are in control of the financial information such as credit card information that you provide. It is processed externally, for example through a bank or other secure payment processor such as PayPal.
Sometimes this involves an initial consultation so that I can better understand your needs and answer your questions about services. The information you provide is held in confidence.
I will ask for contact information. I may ask you to complete an online survey or answer questions by email so that I can respond appropriately to your request for information.
Information for newsletter subscriptions and fulfillment of requests for information products.
Email is permission-based. If you request information, for example you tell me you want to get a copy of my newsletter by email, you control your subscription.
Initial sign up involves two steps:
1. I will ask you to fill in a form to send in your email address and name.
2. You will need to confirm your request by clicking on the link in the email that you get when your form has been received.
Subsequent emails always give you information about how to automatically unsubscribe or update your information.
I use a third party service to manage this process more securely, to protect you from spam, and to enable you to control your subscription from within your own email.
Specific Information Product Requests
Sometimes I will ask you for your name and email so that I can fulfill a request for specific information. For example, you might request a worksheet, tips sheet, or other educational content.
The process is similar to the newsletter subscription outlined above. You will be asked to confirm your permission to send.
Participation in Educational Events
If you sign up attend an educational event, either in-person or online, I will ask for the information needed to communicate with you before, during, and after the event.
I may ask you if you would like to be kept informed of future similar events.
Feedback will be aggregated and used for quality assurance and service improvements. Testimonials will only be shared with your consent.
Tracking Website Visits, Social Media Contacts, and ongoing Subscriptions
You will not be contacted directly as a result of visiting my website, unless you make a specific request.
I use technical tools such as google analytics to track website activity and better understand how visitors interact with my website, newsletter, social media posts, or other means of communicating.
This information is used to administer the website and subscriptions. Data are analyzed in aggregate as a way of identifying patterns and trends that inform service provision and business development.
