4. What personal information do we hold and process about you?
The personal information we hold includes:
i. Appropriate individual company contacts, and personal contacts (email addresses, telephone numbers and geographical addresses) and other information necessary in the course of doing business.

5. The basis on which we process information about you
The law requires us to determine under which of 6 defined basis we process different categories of your personal information, and to notify you of the basis for each category.
If a basis on which we process your personal information is no longer relevant then we shall immediately stop processing your data.

6. Legitimate interests assessment for the direct marketing activity we carry out
Purpose. Our legitimate interest behind our direct marketing processing is to provide useful information for organisations regarding the psychological services we provide and to promote our related products and services to those organisations.
Necessity. Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests and purpose identified above.
Balancing. With regard to business-to-business marketing the Information Commissioner has stated: "business contacts are more likely to reasonably expect the processing of their personal data in a business context, and the processing is less likely to have a significant impact on them personally". In view of this, in the case of direct marketing and email marketing to business contacts, the legitimate interest is not overridden by the interests of the individual, who as a business person with decision making and budgetary responsibilities can reasonably expect to be contacted with marketing material relating to his or her professional role.
7. Sharing your data

8. How long do we keep your data?
We will retain your personal information for as long as is reasonably necessary to fulfil the relevant purposes set out in this Privacy Notice. The retention period will primarily be determined by relevant legal and regulatory obligation and/or duration of our business relationship with you, your employer or another associated party.
If we are legally able to, we will securely delete or erase your personal information if there is no valid business reason for retaining it or if you request us to delete it.
Records of assessments and coaching sessions are retained for no more than seven years unless there is a legitimate reason, or legal requirement, for us to retain such information for a longer period.
