4.   Legal Grounds for Processing

We may rely on one or more of the following legal grounds to process your personal data: 

  • Contract: Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR, which relates to the processing necessary for the performance of a contract. Worthy YU will use when you sign up as a coaching client.

  • Consent: Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR, which relies on your freely given consent at the time you provide your personal data to the Company. Worthy YU will always make it clear what your personal data will be used for and provide you the facility to withdraw your consent – refer to section 9. Your Rights (below).

  • Legal Obligation: Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR, where the processing is necessary in order for Worthy YU to comply with a legal obligation. For example, where Worthy YU will need to share data to HMRC.

  • Legitimate Interests: Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, which relates to our legitimate interests pursued by us the Company or by a third party (such as Company partners), except where such interests are overridden by the interests or your fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection of your personal data. Examples of our legitimate interests are as follows:

    1. evaluation of coaching services

    2. communicating with our clients to introduce them to services, or market similar services/talks that may be of interest and benefit to them


5.   Transfers to Third Parties 

Worthy YU uses data processors who are third parties who provide elements of services on behalf of the business. Worthy YU will have contracts in place with the data processors. This means that the data processors cannot do anything with your personal data unless Worthy YU has instructed them to do so. They will not share your personal data with any organisation apart from Worthy YU. The data processor will hold it securely and retain it for the period Worthy YU instruct.

However, Worthy YU may share data (including personal data) if Worthy YU have a legal obligation to do so, or if Worthy YU must enforce or apply the Company’s terms of use and other agreements. This may include submitting data for legal reasons. 


6.   Cross-Border Data Transfers

Worthy YU’s business processes increasingly go beyond the borders of one country. This globalisation demands not only the availability of communications and information systems across the Company, but also the worldwide processing and use of data within the Company. Consequently, your data may be subject to cross border data transfers.

Worthy YU stores your personal data in digital format on secure local and cloud servers and systems hosted in the European Union (EU) and the United States (US). Where data is stored on servers located in the US we rely on the Privacy Shield Framework and/or the EU model clauses (called the Data Transfer Agreements) to transfer this data. 

You may request a copy of the Data Transfer Agreements or data on the other applicable safeguards we use to protect your personal data.


7.   Retention

Your personal data will be stored for no longer than necessary considering the purposes of the processing activities.

The retention will not exceed 7 years from the end of the contract/agreement after which your personal data will be destroyed securely.


8.   Keeping Your Personal Data Secure

Worthy YU has policies, procedures and security in place to keep your personal data secure once it is in our systems. All personal data is stored securely in accordance with the principles of the GDPR. 

Any personal data collected in paper form (e.g. release and consent forms) are securely filed at our UK site location. All access to your personal data is highly restricted for approved business purposes only.


9.   Your Rights

You can exercise your data subject rights and utilise our Data Subject Access Request (DSAR) procedure. Your rights are as follows:

  • You have the right to ask for a copy of your personal data. 

  • You have the right to have your personal data rectified. If you find your personal data, we hold is inaccurate or incomplete, you can request to see this data, rectified. 

  • You have the right to have your personal data deleted. Though it should be noted this is not an absolute right. 

  • You have the right to demand the restriction of the data processing of your personal data.  This may include, but not limited to the use of data for direct marketing purposes.

  • You have the right to receive your personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format (e.g. PDF or CSV) and to request the transmittance of your data to another controller;

  • You have the right to object to the data processing. This is not an absolute right and only applies under certain circumstances;

  • You have the right to withdraw a given consent at any time to stop a data processing that is based on your consent.

To exercise any of these rights, please contact coach@worthyyu.com. Worthy YU does not meet the GDPR requirement to appoint a Data Protection Officer, so it does not have one.


If you wish to complain about how we have handled your personal data, please contact us in the first instance by email at coach@worthyyu.com.

We will then investigate your complaint and work with you to resolve the matter. 

If you still feel that your personal data has not been handled appropriately according to the law, you can contact the Information Commissioner’s Office in the UK here: https://ico.org.uk/concerns/ and file a complaint with them.
