Who we are
Our website address is: https://www.senseofdirection.life.
The Founder of Sense of Direction is Rebecca Norton
All personal information is kept confidential and not shared with anyone (unless I have a legal obligation to do so). Records are either stored securely as paper documents or stored on a password protected laptop. Records are not kept any longer than necessary and will be destroyed securely.
Names, email addresses and information about events attended are retained to help me provide appropriate services and information. Email addresses are used to mail out information about forthcoming events and newsletters (normally no more than once a month). People can unsubscribe from MailChimp Newsletter through the link or they can request to be removed by emailing me (Rebecca.firstname.lastname@example.org). I will check every 12 months whether a person wishes to remain on the mailing list.
Email addresses are held for those people who wish to be on my Well-being Walk’s List. I will use this to email out information about forthcoming Well-being Walks (normally 2 -3 times a month). Emails may come from my personal email address or through MailChimp. You can request to have your name removed from the Well-being Walk List at any time.
Contact forms for Walking Events
Personal information is requested in case of emergency situations on any of my Walking events or to get in touch in case of changes to Walks at the last minute. These forms will be destroyed 6 months after the last walk attended. If participants wish to join walks again after this period of time they will be asked to complete another contact form.
Information is requested to fulfill my insurance obligations, so that I can get in touch in case of changes to sessions or in case of emergencies. I may also take notes during sessions to aid the coaching process. These notes will be destroyed 5 years after the coaching relationship has ended

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
