Personal data that LIEF Coaching processes 

Below is an explanation of which personal data is collected and for what purpose. 

  • Contact. You can contact LIEF Coaching via the contact form on the website. In this form, you will be asked for your name, email address, the country where you live, the time zone you are in, and your message. You will be asked for this information so that LIEF Coaching can contact you to inform you about the coaching options and/or offer a proposal for an appointment. 
  • The intake form. The intake form contains the following information: date, name, date of birth, address, country, time zone, information about your health, information about your progress, and if applicable your progress with the Gupta program, telephone number or email address of someone from your support network, your coach question and in which payment rate you fall. This information provides the basis for an initial coaching session. LIEF Coaching needs this information to be able to estimate whether it can meet your request for help. 
  • LIEF Coaching needs the address details (name, street, house number, and zip code) for your invoice. This is mandatory in the Netherlands. 
  • Google Analytics. The LIEF Coaching website collects your data to improve the website. This is done with Google Analytics. This data is anonymous, so Google Analytics uses anonymous IP addresses and this data is therefore not linked to your personal data.
