Here at The Hobbs Consultancy, we care about your data as much as we care about you. There are two instances in which The Hobbs Consultancy will collect your data:
When you give it to us directly:
1/ If you are a client of ours or if you have made an enquiry about services we provide via our website. We will keep your details on our records for 5 years after you cease being a client of ours or cease communications with us. As a client of ours we will automatically add you to our mailing list, you can withdraw from this at any time by following the unsubscribe link or dropping us an email asking to remove you. The data we hold is your name, email address, telephone number, company name, and company address. If you are a private, parental or executive coaching client, our coaches will keep confidential records about your sessions for legal reasons and destroy these after 5 years.
2/ By subscribing to our mailing list, you are subscribing to receive email communications from us, from time-to-time, in order to keep you informed of our D&I services, offers, competitions, as well as provide insightful personal development communications. You have the right to remove yourself from this mailing list at any time, either via the unsubscribe option or in an email to us. The only data we have is your name and email address. We will never share your details outside of The Hobbs Consultancy.
When you visit our website:
In May 2012 EU legislation changed requesting that information be provided to site visitors if any ‘cookie’ data is collected. A last minute change was made to this law which removed the requirement to have a pop-up cookie opt-in agreement for site visitors. We use Yola to host our website. They rely on the principle of ‘implied consent’, by visiting our website you understand that visit will result in cookies being used. Yola place two cookies on visitors to our site - one tracks analytics and the other is placed by Yola, but hosted at quantcast.com, tracking aggregate visitor information across Yola hosted sites.
A cookie is a small text file created when your devices accesses a website. It allows the website to recognise the device and store some information about the user’s preferences or past actions. This data is anonymous and never linked to any other information. It tells us which pages you visit on our website and whether you are a return visitor.
