Please read this Policy carefully to understand how we handle information about you. By using our Services, you acknowledge that you have read and understood this Policy and that we collect, use, and share information as set forth below.
In general, you can visit TPR websites without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information.
However, you may choose to provide us with personally identifiable information. Personally identifiable information is information that can be used to identify you, such as your name, email address, or similar information.
Within the TPR websites, you can make requests for information, register to receive materials from us, schedule introduction calls, and in some cases, purchase our products or services. In the case of coaches, you can also use our app to manage and schedule calls with clients. The types of personal information collected in these circumstances may include name, location, employment details, education history, contact preferences (including email addresses & telephone number), age, salary range and billing, transaction, calendar availability, and credit card information (including billing address).
You can be assured that information you provide voluntarily will only be used in connection with your business relationship with TPR. We will hold, use and disclose your personally identifiable information for our legitimate business purposes including:
From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research or, with your consent, to provide you with marketing information about our products and services we think would be of particular interest to you. At a minimum, we will always give you the choice to opt-out of receiving such direct marketing or market research contact.
We do not use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the uses described in this statement. More information about how we may share your information can be found at section 5.
Under GDPR, the main grounds that we rely upon in order to process personal information of uses of our websites and customers are the following:
(a) Necessary for entering into, or performing, a contract – in order to perform obligations that we undertake in providing a service to you, or in order to take steps at your request to enter into a contract with us, it will be necessary for us to process your personal data;
(b) Necessary for compliance with a legal obligation – we are subject to certain legal requirements which may require us to process your personal data. We may also be obliged by law to disclose your personal data to a regulatory body or law enforcement agency;
(c) Necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests – either we, or a third party, will need to process your personal data for the purposes of our (or a third party's) legitimate interests, provided we have established that those interests are not overridden by your rights and freedoms, including your right to have your personal data protected. Our legitimate interests include responding to requests and enquiries from you or a third party, optimising our website and customer experience, informing you about our products and services and ensuring that our operations are conducted in an appropriate and efficient manner;
(d) Consent – in some circumstances, we may ask for your consent to process your personal data in a particular way.
We do not share your personal information with third parties, other than where we are required to do so by applicable law, regulation or as part of a legal process. If we receive a request from a regulatory body or law enforcement agency, and if permitted under GDPR and other laws, we may disclose certain personal information to such bodies or agencies.
If we or our business merges with or is acquired by another business or company in the future, we will share your personal information with the new owners of the business or company and their advisors. If this happens, we will notify users of our websites and customers of such event.
If you have signed up with us as a coach, you will be required to use our application to manage your profile, your availability, and your calls with customers. To facilitate these features, we use the Google Places API and the Google Calendar API. Our use and transfer of your information received from Google APIs adheres to the Google API Services User Data Policy, including the Limited Use requirements.
You have certain rights in relation to personal information we hold about you. Details of these rights and how to exercise them are set out below. We will require evidence of your identity before we are able to act on your request.
You have the right at any time to ask us for a copy of the personal information about you that we hold. Where we have good reason, and if the GDPR permits, we can refuse your request for a copy of your personal information, or certain elements of the request. If we refuse your request or any element of it, we will provide you with our reasons for doing so.
If personal information we hold about you is not accurate, out of date or incomplete, you have a right to have the data rectified, updated or completed. You can let us know by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In certain circumstances, you have the right to request that personal information we hold about you is erased e.g. if the information is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or processed or our processing of the information is based on your consent and there are no other legal grounds on which we may process the information.
In certain circumstances, you have the right to object to our processing of your personal information by contacting us at email@example.com. For example, if we are processing your information on the basis of our legitimate interests and there are no compelling legitimate grounds for our processing which override your rights and interests. You also have the right to object to use of your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
You may also have the right to restrict our use of your personal information, such as in circumstances where you have challenged the accuracy of the information and during the period where we are verifying its accuracy.
In certain instances, you have a right to receive any personal information that we hold about you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You can ask us to transmit that information to you or directly to a third party organisation.
The above right exists only in respect of personal information that:
While we are happy for such requests to be made, we are not able to guarantee technical compatibility with a third party organisation's systems. We are also unable to comply with requests that relate to personal information of others without their consent.
You can exercise any of the above rights by contacting us using any of the methods in the Contact section below.
Most of the above rights are subject to limitations and exceptions. We will provide reasons if we are unable to comply with any request for the exercise of your rights.
To the extent that we are processing your personal information based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. You can do this by contacting us using the details in the Contact section below.

We have put in place measures to ensure the security of the information we collect and store about you and will use our reasonable endeavours to protect your personal data from unauthorised disclosure and/or access including through the use of network and database security measures, but these cannot guarantee the security of any data which is collected and stored.
We use encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data, such as credit card information.
Please note that clicking on links and banner advertisements on our websites can result in your browser accessing a third party website, where data privacy practices are different to that of TPR.
We are not responsible for, and have no control over, information that is submitted or collected by these third parties and you should consult their privacy policies.
Given that the Internet is a global environment, using the Internet to collect and process personal data necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. Unfortunately the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site via third party networks; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
