Privacy Statement 


How we use student and client information 


Evolution Coaching Academy is fully committed to respecting the privacy of all individuals. 

Evolution Coaching Academy is the data controller of the personal information you provide to us. This means the academy determines the purposes for which, and the manner in which, any personal data relating to students and clients is to be processed. 

In some cases, your data will be made available to International Coach Federation (ICF) in order to allow audit required for Renewal of Accreditation of Training Programmes or Coach Credentials; however, this will only be done with your consent, unless the law requires the academy to share your data with a third party. 

Where the academy makes the data available to a third party processor, the same data protection standards that Evolution Coaching Academy upholds are imposed on the processor. 

Why we collect and use this information: 


We use the students’ and clients’ data: 

  •  to support student and client’s learning 

  •  to monitor and report on student and client’s progress 

  •  to assess the quality of our services 

  •  to meet the statutory duties placed upon us for data collections 

  •  to comply with the law regarding data sharing

  • to inform students and clients about upcoming courses and development programmes in Evolution Coaching Academy

The lawful basis on which we use this information:


We collect and process student and client information in order to meet the legal requirement set out in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and UK law and ICF requirements toward Accredited Coach Training Programme Providers and Accredited Practitioners.


Collecting student and client information: 

Student and client data is essential for the academy’ operational use. Whilst the majority of student or client information you provide to us is mandatory, some of it is provided to us on a voluntary basis. In order to comply with the GDPR and data protection legislation, we will inform you at the point of collection, whether you are required to provide certain student or client information to us or if you have a choice in this. 


The categories of student and client information that we collect, hold and share include: 

  • Personal identifiers and contacts (such as name and addresses, company name and tax number, email address, telephone number) 

  • Contractual information (such as registration forms and conditions of participating in a training programme or coaching or mentor coaching or supervision)

  • Attendance information (such as number of hours and sessions attended,  number of absences, and absence reasons) 

  • Assessment information (such as students’ ICF PCC Performance Evaluation assessment results, recordings and evaluations of students’ coaching sessions)


Storing student and client data: 

We hold student and client data for ten years from the last point of communication with an individual.
In accordance with the GDPR and UK Law, Evolution Coaching Academy does not store personal data indefinitely; data is only stored for as long as is necessary to complete the task for which it was originally collected. 

Who we share student and client information with: 

We routinely share student and client information with International Coach Federation. 


Why we regularly share student and client information: 

We do not share information about our students or clients with anyone without consent unless the law and our policies allow us to do so. 


All data is transferred securely and held by ICF under a combination of software and hardware controls.

ICF performers regular surveys of Accredited Coach Training Programmes and Credential Coaches in order to award or renew the credential.  Additionally ICF is granted a right to perform routine audits to ensure the quality of services provided to students and clients.
