Storing Your Personal Data

Disclosing Your Information

We may share your personal information with a supplier to Personal Boardroom Ltd (such as a coach or trainer who we contract with to be your coach or to deliver a workshop for you and others). We only share your data where it is absolutely necessary to do so in order to deliver our service to you. All our suppliers have signed a data processing agreement with us whereby they agree to abide by this Privacy Policy.
